How often do you clean your house? Once or twice a week? Maybe every single day? No matter your cleaning schedule, your house is a nice place to live, and it’s as cozy and comfortable as you want it to be. All in all, your house is lovely, clean and tidy, and you’re proud of it!
However, there’s a big chance for your watchful eye to neglect certain areas of your home when it comes to sprucing things up a little. Let’s go through some of the most commonly neglected areas of a house below, to make sure you know where to direct the scrubbing brush next!
The attic doesn’t see a lot of action; it’s where you store all of the Christmas decorations, and it’s where all of your old tat that you don’t know what else to do with goes. What more could be done with the attic? Well, it could do with a proper clear out! There could be all sorts of hidden gems up there that could make you a good bit of money if cleaned up and sold.
Not to mention the items you might be missing from your cupboards, that could be of real help to the way you live and work. That food processor you got for your wedding that you never unwrapped? That could still be up there!
Your floors see a lot of use during their lifetime, and because of this, they could very well be filthy without you even knowing about it! This is especially true if you have carpets down; dirt and bacteria can build up within the pile, and who knows if the vacuuming you do on a regular basis is really managing to pull the worst of it out. So, why not get in touch with some carpet cleaners when you get the chance to? Always let the professionals handle the worst of the mess!
If you don’t have carpet, your wood flooring might be in similar need of cleaning and repair. It might need filling in some places, or sanding down in others, especially if you have pets with sharp claws.
The Front Garden
The curb appeal of your home might need a bit of work right now. It’s the springtime, and summer will soon be here, but are you ready for it? Because if there’s no grass or plants out there, your front garden might seem a little barren when the sun’s out and the skies are blue!
So, get to cultivating, and think about planting in a small hedge row, or even just some climbing/tall plants to border the pathway up to your house. Even if you can’t plant anything, you could make good use of plant pots and/or boxes to spruce the area up a little, and promote a little more biodiversity that’s both good for your body and the environment around you.
With these tips, your house will be neglected no longer!
