As we mentioned in our previous article, we are slowly but surely getting back to our normal lives with easing up of Covid-19 restrictions. We had a different routine during the lockdown times. Working from home probably caused more agony as opposed to the general belief. While juggling work and household chores, we often put our chores to the back burner. Now that we are granted a new lease of life, it is a good time to spring clean your home to give it a refreshed look.
Why Spring Clean?
Locking up ourselves at home gave us a chance to look at our homes and realise how messed up our personal spaces have been. We need to rearrange furniture, change curtains, scrub surfaces, change bulbs; buy a new set of air fresheners and get some fresh flowers, to light up the mood. A fresh living space will reduce anxiety and give you peace of mind as well.
How to Spring Clean?
You can spring clean your home step-by-step to ease off the workload. With the help of a professional cleaner, your home will be ready in no time. Here’s how you can do it:
Declutter and re-organise – Are you a hoarder? Have you been holding onto possessions that you no longer use? Go through your wardrobe, cabinets and drawers, and other storage spaces to find things you don’t need. There may be collectibles part of your fondest memories, but others that hold no value anymore shouldn’t take up your space. Review them judiciously. You may either give them away as donations or send them for recycling. Either way, give your home the much needed space to breathe. Now you will find enough room to reorganise your possessions.
Clean the windows – Singapore’s air quality improved as a result of reduced social and economic activities during the lockdown. It means we have the luxury of healthy air outdoors after ages. Let us usher in some fresh air into our homes as well. To do so, you need to start with cleaning the windows before opening them up. Windows locked up for many weeks will collect dust, dirt and even pests along the frames and hinges. When you book for a cleaner on Sendhelper app, mention if you would like internal window cleaning, too.
Wash curtains and carpets – Over time, curtains and carpets will gather dust if not washed periodically. Accumulation of dust not only makes the room warmer, it will also fade the colour of the fabric away. If you have a smoker at home, things are bound to get even worse. Curtains will retain the odour of smoke forever, and no air freshener will save you. If you are a pet owner, get stain remover shampoos for carpets to get rid of urine odour. For professional curtain and carpet spring cleaning, book Sendhelper’s laundry service through contactless pick-up and delivery.
Scrub surfaces – Plenty of activities took place in your home in the last few weeks while you were working from your personal space (Yes, we know;)) You may have cooked a lot, used toilets and bathrooms more than ever, dumped daily waste at the corner of your room and left it ignored and more. Take time to scrub the surfaces of the kitchen, bathrooms etc. and sanitise them. In the modern era, ‘sanitise’ is the new mantra. Your invisible enemy, the coronavirus can survive up to 72 hours on hard surfaces. So spare no effort to clean and disinfect every nook and corner of your house.
