Clean homes lead to lower stress levels

The year just started! This often goes hand in hand with spring cleaning. Cleaning has spillover benefits into different parts of our lives. This 2019, consider the long-term impact and intrinsic motivators to cleaning your house. Here are some tips to help you persist through the process of cleaning.

Clearly define your needs and priorities

Some contend that the state of our house is the reflection of our inner beings. Research has found that physical clutter adds to your stress. However, this need not be the case.  When people clear their homes, they often jump straight into throwing things out based on what they feel. This works if what you’re cleaning happens to be in small amounts. However, quite a few of us are guilty of accumulating piles to the extent of hoarding and cluttering our homes.

Set the parameters straight

Define guidelines for yourself on how you should categorise your belongings first. Your priorities and goals should direct what you want in both your life and your homes. Many tend to give up on cleaning after feeling overwhelmed by the clutter. These questions, however, can mitigate these sources of anxiety when it comes to cleaning:

  1. What are quantifiable goals you would like to set for yourself and your family?
  2. What are your top 10 list of priorities as an individual and a family?
  3. How can your house be structured to meet these priorities and needs at all times?
  4. What are things in your house which don’t support these goals?

These may sound like very obvious questions. However, many of us have piles of items stored for years in our homes which may never be used at all. It is important to be able to define our needs and wants. This is not exclusive to just the aesthetics of our homes. It also improves our overall well-being too.

Who doesn’t love a nice clean living room to come home to?

You don’t need most of it

The truth is, we probably don’t need most of the items we have. Remember the outfits bought during sale but never worn? Or the lamp bought a while back because it was fancy? These are just a few examples of many things we don’t need. Faced with the stress from work or school, spending money has become means of therapy. Unfortunately, this adds to the stress in the long term. It makes it difficult for cleaning tools to move around the house. This may make us feel that cleaning is a challenging process when it doesn’t have to be!

Another issue with clearing our old items is the nostalgia attached to it. Items which remind us of relationships which we once shared leaves us in a state of standstill. Decluttering can at times help us move on too.

Engage help to clear the clutter

Cluttered spaces are often hosting spaces for pests such as cockroaches and termites. The accumulated moisture in corners are also conducive for mould to fester in. You may want to hire professional cleaning services to help you clear this. This is because professional expertise in these matters would present a higher chance of your home being restored to its original state!

There are also several cleaning services which are available in Singapore to help you with clearing old items and with issues of pests and mould. With a variety of cleaning services ranging from specialised deep cleaning to regular home cleaning and part-time helpers who help you with simple cleaning tasks, Sendhelper caters to your budget and cleaning needs.

4 tips for cleaning your sofa

After a long day at work or school, coming home to lounge on the sofa feels like absolute bliss.
However, not cleaning the sofa properly turns it from a place of comfort to a breeding ground for bacteria and other germs. Here are some tips to care for the sofa at home appropriately!

1. Locate the sofa away from the window

Position the sofa away from the window

Sunlight can react with photo-sensitive pigments in sofas. This results in a change of colour over time, which isn’t always reversible. Furthermore, there may be incidences of rain affecting the sofa if the window is not closed properly. These stains cannot be cleaned easily. As such, it is advisable to place the sofa from a distance away from the window.

2.  Read the label

Understand the characteristics of the fabric before cleaning. The codes shown on labels indicate how different fabric should be cleaned. The following are the breakdown for codes on fabric labels:

  • W – This indicates water can be used to clean the fabric.
  • WS – A dry cleaning detergent or mild detergent and steam vacuum can be used
  • X – No water, vacuum only
  • S – Clean with dry cleaner detergent

3. Clean the sofa consistently

Clean the sofa regularly

Consistency is key in maintaining upholstery in good shape. If the vacuum at home has an upholstery function, vacuum the sofa weekly along with other cleaning chores. Remember to vacuum the corners and lift up the seating (if possible) to clean the base of the sofa. If the couch at home is made of leather, consider wiping it with a damp cloth regularly.

Make cleaning the sofa a weekly activity at the very least. Not cleaning sofas consistently makes it difficult to clean after a long time. Consequently, the accumulated dirt will affect our health.

4. Treat stains immediately

If something spills on the sofa, clean it immediately lest the stain sets. Additionally, check the sofa once daily for stains which have gone unnoticed through the day. Here are points to note when cleaning the stains:

  • Wipe spills with a paper towel or dry cloth as soon as the spill happens. Do not make rubbing motions. Instead, blot the liquid out.
  • If the stain cannot be removed with a dry cloth, use a water-based cleaner to remove the stain. However, do a patch test of the cleaner in an inconspicuous corner of the sofa to see if the cleaner works with the fabric. Doing so prevents complication of the stain.
  • However, do not try to clean oil-based stains as this might cause a bigger stain. Oil-based stains are more complex to remove and would require deep cleaning services to remove.
  • Baking soda is not the solution to all stains. There are many stain removing tips on the internet which suggests baking soda for removing stains. However, the effectiveness of baking soda is dependent on what kind of stain it is and how long has the stain been set in the upholstery for. If these factors are not clear, it is better to consult a professional to help with the cleaning of your upholstery.

Cleaning and caring for our sofas are not easy tasks. However, there are professional cleaning services available in Singapore which can help you clean your sofas. Available on iOS App Store and Android Play Store, Sendhelper is a platform which allows you to book professional home cleaning, deep cleaning, sofa cleaning, mattress cleaning and other such services in Singapore at an affordable price and at your own convenience.
