Let’s face it. We don’t always have the time to clean our houses from top to bottom. We’re here to help you relax a little bit by knocking some items off your to-do list. Here are some things that can wait if you’re in a hurry.
You don’t have to mop every single time you clean. Sweep on a regular basis, and spot clean messes as needed. Leave mopping as a monthly chore.
If you take precautionary steps to prevent dust from forming, you won’t have to dust as often. Fabrics shed and create a lot of dust, and your bed can be one of the worst culprits of dust creation. Click here for a list of ways to prevent dust from forming in your house.
While some people hire a window cleaner, others plan on tackling the task themselves. However, not only can it be tricky if you have a lot of high windows, it’s surprisingly tiring as well. Unless your windows are cloudy or visually unpleasant, this is a chore you can put off for months at a time. We offer seasonal window cleaning if this is a chore you’d like to avoid altogether.
Over-cleaning your pipes in the kitchen or bathroom can lead to unwanted erosion. Put this on a seasonal cleaning schedule instead of your regular to-do list.
Making The Bed
There are differing opinions on this chore. Making the bed is really just a cosmetic preference. If you need to save time, this is one activity you can skip.
Unless you’ve got stuck on messes, you can skip scrubbing the microwave. You can prevent those messes by making sure everything is covered when heated. So, covering your dish=less work for you.
Our friends at Apartment Therapy just made life a little easier…
If you’re a fervent hand washer (or a reluctant one-maybe the hand-wash life chose you due to the distinct lack of dishwasher in your apartment), you should know that you don’t have to hand-dry your dishes at all. In fact, letting your clean dishes air dry is probably better and more sanitary than towel-drying, unless you’re using a fresh clean towel for each dish. Invest a little (we’re talking $10) in a dish-drying rack and skip this chore until… forever.
Now that you have official permission to mark some things on your never-ending list of chores, you can take some time to relax. Or, if you’d like to completely hand your list over to us, we’d be happy to take care of it. Call us today at 541.601.6236 to get some chores off your hands.
