Let’s face it, no one in their right mind loves spending their precious free time on boring tasks like home and carpet cleaning. I know you’d rather be out enjoying everything that life has to offer with your family and friends. Home and Carpet Cleaning is likely the furthest thing on your mind.
But, cleaning doesn’t always have to be a chore. Creating a schedule for regular cleaning can save you time and money in the long run, while ensuring your home is hygienic and a pleasure to be in.
What’s that? Still not convinced and would rather leave that mess in your living room to clean itself?
Well these 3 facts, and the bonus sample-cleaning schedule, are guaranteed to change your mind.
Key Topics Covered
Why a Home and Carpet Cleaning Schedule?
1. Protect Your Family Against Illness and Allergy
It’s no surprise that a messy home, ripe with bacteria and dust, is a surefire path to chronic illness for you and a new Ferrari for your GP.
If you’re allergic to dust mites, as many Australians are, you may be surprised to know that your bed can house up to a whopping 10 million dust mites.
- And more!
Setting specific days and times to clean your home will help you rid yourself, and your family, of the risk of disease.
It is important to know that simply vacuuming your carpet or scrubbing your tiles won’t quite get all of the nasty stuff.
Having your carpet and tiles professionally cleaned a couple times of a year, on top of your own weekly efforts, is the best way to ensure your family stays healthy and happy.
2. Stop Mess From Getting Out of Control
Picture this. You come home from a hard day’s work, excited to finally kick your shoes and socks off for the day.
You take each sock off, one at a time, and fling them into the corner of your room thinking you’ll just pick them up on your way to bed. But, that never happens, does it?
The next thing you know, you have a mountain of socks and underwear in the corner of your room that you think may house one of your children – where is Billy anyway?
Seeing that mess pilling up can be stressful, so it’s important to nip it in the bud as soon as you can. Knowing that you have scheduled one, two or three days a week to tidy up can certainly relieve that stress.
Don’t let the mess get on top of you, or top of Billy, ever again.
3. Avoid Embarrassments
Routine cleaning also means your home will be clean not just some of the time, but pretty much all of the time.
Have you ever had a friend, family member, or worse, your mother-in-law suddenly pop in, only to look at you like you were a pig in a sty?
Messy homes can be embarrassing, and no one wants to be known as the owner of that smelly house down the street.
