You’ve probably been busy in life lately. You have a mountain load of work, documents here and there. You might be a student with assignments piling up in the corner, losing sleep to catch up to the deadlines; everyone’s been there. And because of this hectic lifestyle, you’ve let yourself go. Not only have you let yourself go, but you’ve also let your living space go as well. What a mess! You’re probably looking around the room and thinking, “I should do some house cleaning.”
Nothing is there, which, a little sweeping here and there won’t fix. But people do easily get distracted when cleaning. Finding an old toy and then reminiscing of the good old days and later ending up making even more of a mess than when you started is common for many.
Don’t fret. To avoid all that (you can do that once everything is clean), a small guide is provided to get you back on track and hopefully make things easier and get things done.
Planning Is the Way to Go!
Yes, to avoid those sitting on the floor moments and rummaging through your old stuff scenarios, planning is truly the way to go. You have to go in strong and with a goal in mind. You can’t just clean one corner then lay on your bed the next minute because you think that made a difference. You have to make a list and map things out on what you need to get done. Start simple, write down what you need to do for each room and then what sort of materials you need to cater to them. Make it organised to get more things done and to save time along the way.
Clear Things Out
Start small. The little things always matter. Start by going through your plan and clearing out one corner and then the next. Make space for yourself to have an even bigger canvas to work on. Clear out drawers, pantries, and even closets, then individually clean them out first. You want to have all the small creaks and corners squeaky clean because you don’t want dust piling up in hidden corners that you don’t even know about. Attack the innermost surfaces first, and then go for the corners you can see. Clean everything out.
Sort What You Need and Don’t Need
Don’t be a hoarder; you don’t need ten mops for a one-story house. You can have one or two. Sure, collecting stuff is fun, but you have to know when it’s too much that it’s messing with your health and even your wallet. Throw out the things you don’t need and only keep those that you do. If they’re in good condition, you could sell them for a good price and even get money out of the experience. Buying that anime figure or that beautiful painting is, of course, okay, but make sure you have the space to store it, or it would only turn to junk in the end.
Let the Experts Take Care of It
If you’re a workaholic yourself, your best course of action would be to get the expert’s help in all of this. Not only can you take a breather for a bit and relax, but you don’t have to exert the needed effort to fully clean your house. Getting professional help means that they know what they are doing and can fully rid your house of dirt for an extensive amount of time. Plus, you can give them the plan you crafted, and they can go through with what you want to do to your house. It’s a win-win situation for both of you.
Partaking in a full house cleaning is a needy task that requires the best and making sure that not a speck of dust is left in the building. Starting with a plan and taking baby steps is the way to go to not go in circles over which room to clean next. Sorting the stuff you need and don’t need is also essential when cleaning because you don’t want to compromise the space you have for things you don’t need. And finally, know when to get an expert, especially when you’re a workaholic who doesn’t have the time to do all of this. Save time and be able to do more of what you love. Hopefully, this has opened your minds about how to perform a proper cleaning. Good luck and get rid of the dust!
