Is there an ideal time to clean?
There’s no denying it, cleaning can take up a large part of our daily chores. Laundry, washing up, dusting can all add up to several hours every week. But is there a best time to clean and how can you lessen the load?
The ideal amount of time spent cleaning each day is 20-30 minutes, and as our previous blog mentioned https://sph2onge.co.uk/blogs/news/how-spring-cleaning-can-boost-your-health, even a small amount of cleaning a day can boost our wellbeing. Why not make a list of quick everyday tasks and start doing them regularly? This will help break down your to-do list into smaller manageable chunks rather than feeling like it will take up your whole weekend!
When it comes to a preferred day, this will depend on your schedule. The most-popular day to hire a cleaner is Friday as people want their home spotless for the weekend. If you are working full-time you may only have time to clean at the end of the day whereas if you are working from home or a stay-at-home parent it may be more time-efficient to do bits throughout the day.
Another method is dividing up your cleaning list by room or by task based on your household’s schedule. Drawing up a regular schedule can help you keep track of what’s been done and get you into a weekly routine, you can even get the kids involved and allocate them their own dedicated tasks on the list such as emptying the dishwasher or feeding pets.
