Taking care of your home normally falls under one of two categories, either it is seen as a hobby or as a chore, now if you are the latter don’t worry we have the solution for you, however if you see taking care of you living space as a hobby, then here are the main areas to consider when cleaning:

  • Floors
  • Windows
  • Walls
  • All surfaces (tables, chairs, tops of cabinets etc)
  • Skirting boards
  • Storage areas
  • Appliances

Performing these tasks are normally done on a weekly basis as it makes it more manageable and there is less time for dirt and dust to collect. Doing the simpler jobs regularly such vacuuming or sweeping and dusting keeps your environment looking fresh and vibrant, however sometimes emergencies crop up where you need the help of professionals. In most circumstances it is normally a stain that can’t be removed from the carpet or you find yourself with limited time to perform the tasks.

Doing general maintenance on a weekly, monthly and quarterly basis keeps your house and personal belongings looking new. Performing these duties can seem a bit intimidating and daunting at the start but once done a couple of times they feel like second nature and it is a good way to keep either your partner or wife off your back, which is always a bonus. Certain maintenance tasks include taking out the rubbish, checking smoke alarms, changing air conditioning filters and the restoration of furniture. By carrying out these jobs you will find that your household runs a lot smoother and your personal belongings will last a lot longer, which is a relief considering how expensive it is to replace appliances and furniture.

Keeping the inside of you house gives you a great sense of accomplishment however it does not start and stop within those four walls, it also extends out into your garage, car port and garden, both front and back. It is important to remember that these areas can be just as enjoyable and relaxing as the inside of the household. By simply keeping your lawn in check you can create a tranquil environment that also lends itself to social events, however for those larger and more dangerous jobs such as tree lopping you may want to look at hiring in the professionals to make sure it is done safely.
