Have you heard about the 30-day challenges? There are everywhere nowadays, and people do them for different reasons – healthy eating, weight loss, just for fun. There is even one for cleaning, and of course, we as professionals find it quite interesting. After much deliberation, our London cleaners came up with our own version of the 30 Day Cleaning Challenge. It is designed to help all those struggling with household chores. Stop wasting time and try it, you will be amazed at the results.
How Will My London Home Benefit From It?
The idea is to finish a simple cleaning task each day for a month. At the end of the process, your home will look as if you used the services of a cleaning company. You will save not only time but money. Dividing the big task into small chores will also teach you to organise your day better and prioritise properly.
How Does the Challange Work?
The cleaning chores are divided by rooms, so you will tidy your home in a strict order.
- 8 days for the kitchen
- 4 days for the bathroom
- 7 days for the living/dining room
- 5 days for the bedroom
- 3 days for the entryway
- 3 days for the outdoor areas
If you are living in an apartment in London, there is a good chance you have more or fewer rooms. That is why we will include additional tasks you can use to swap with the ones that are not relevant to your living situation.
