It might seem a bit late to be doing a spring clean, but as they say- there is no time like the present. The Port Stephens Examiner ran an advertorial last week about just that- doing a spring clean, and let’s face it, if you haven’t done it yet, it’s not too late!
The story covered just about every aspect of giving your home a thorough scrubbing- inside and out, which to some, might seem a bit daunting. The thought of doing everything in one go could cause considerable stress to the average urban dweller, with a very good chance of forcing a decision to just put it off until next spring! The other option could be to pace yourself by approaching the tasks one at a time; let’s say, one per week. Well, that could end like painting the Harbour Bridge. As soon as you’ve finished everything on your list, it has taken a year, and it’s time to start all over again.
Keeping your house clean has its benefits in terms of health, well-being and, your peace of mind. We all know the health benefits of reducing dust and mould in our homes, but the words used in the story in the Examiner had me thinking I had to join the army for a day just to freshen up the house, with phases like; ‘dust is the enemy’ and ‘a quick assault with the.. vacuum’, which had me shivering in my army boots!
The story did have a very useful message though, and that is that it is important to keep on top of the cleaning jobs that go a bit further under the bed, or behind the lounge. You know, the jobs that take a bit more effort and time. Summer is here and the spring clean can be done at any time of the year. Let’s face it, summer is the time when we open everything up in our home to enjoy the warm weather and, with the summer school holidays nearly here, we want our home to be looking its best and to be a healthy environment for family and friends to enjoy.
There certainly was a lot of good advice and reminders about cleaning, maintenance and preparing your home for the summer season in the story in the Port Stephens Examiner, and it is true that these chores can be overwhelming. I certainly agree with the suggestion that you could reduce your stress levels if you were to consider finding experts who can help with these tasks.
