Welcome to 2020! With a new year on the calendar, we’re all seized by a flood of good intentions. Make sure you put them to good use with our top cleaning resolutions to ensure a fresh (and clean) start to the new decade!
Create a schedule
Creating a plan is the best form of attack against the dreaded cleaning beast! Whether it’s weekly, monthly, yearly, or even committing to a quarterly seasonal clean, breaking down the task makes it easier to contemplate and achieve, and for the whole family to stick to without any excuses!
Out with the old!
There’s something about the new year that inspires the organisational, go-getter spirit in all of us. Take full advantage of it and have a big sort out, donating, selling or recycling things you no longer want or need. It’s the perfect time seeing as though you’ll be needing to find a place to store all of those brand new Christmas gifts. And no, ‘in with the new’ is not the next logical step!
A new year is a golden to chance to set new intentions and boundaries, and where the family is concerned this can mean a shake-up of the household cleaning schedule and redressing any imbalances there may be. Rather than trying to reinvent the wheel, maybe just insist on a couple of non-negotiable rules, such as hanging up wet towels after each use, or ensuring that toys are put away every night.
Opening up the cupboard and seeing a massive array of products facing you can make the cleaning seem like an even more daunting task. But streamlining cleaning supplies is a smart way of streamlining the whole process, and choosing environmentally-friendly products can make the task a kinder and more pleasant one all round, helping with family health resolutions at the same time! Put old junk to work too keeping old toothbrushes, old t-shirts and the like to add to your green cleaning arsenal.
Hire a professional
Hiring a professional cleaner doesn’t mean an invasive presence every week that breaks the bank! We offer a range of flexible housekeeping solutions, from regular weekly visits to occasional or one-off cleans, or perhaps it’s just a quarterly seasonal deep clean you need? Get in touch to find out what we can offer.
Hit the ground running for 2020, as when your house sparkles, you sparkle too!
Best wishes and a Happy New Year to all of our loyal Family Space clients and staff!
