Cleaning can often be a real chore and during the summer months, it can be almost unbearable. Whether you’re in the office or at home, follow these five simple, yet effective tips to ensure you’re keeping on top of your cleaning this summer. And most importantly keeping cool while doing it!
Clean often –
We’re all guilty of leaving our cleaning probably a little too long only to be faced with the daunting task of getting everything clean again. During these summer months consider cleaning often to prevent buildup and make a lighter job of the situation.
Stay Hydrated –
It’s easy to forget how strenuous cleaning can be, especially in this heat. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated when scrubbing those stubborn kitchen floors and surfaces.
Wake up early –
Always plan ahead when cleaning in the Summer heat. You don’t want to go scrubbing the bathtub in the middle of the day when the sun is at its hottest. Consider waking up early to stay as cool as possible when cleaning or perhaps in the evening.
Get the children to help –
If you have children at home this summer holiday, get them to help around the house! Granted, they’re not going to enjoy the idea of helping out but there are ways you can make it fun for them with competitions and rewards. This also rewards you with less cleaning.
Air Condition! –
If you’re lucky enough to have air conditioning, use it! If not get all the fans you can find! No one likes being hot and sweaty while carrying out an already strenuous task like cleaning. So, take extra steps to ensure you’re keeping as cool as possible.
