The importance of regular domestic cleaning


The same rule applies to regular domestic cleaning as it does to everything else. The more we maintain and care for something, the better it is. When we haven’t cleaned and tidied for a long time, we’re afraid to even start! This causes us to keep putting off the activity in question. And so it becomes more and more untidy – something known as the vicious cycle of cleaning.

In the following lines we are going to give you some useful tips on regular domestic cleaning. Let’s break the vicious cycle of cleaning together!


4 Practical tips for regular domestic cleaning

  1. If you want your home to be really clean, don’t underestimate the care of the areas that are not visible. They can be a source of dust that has a negative impact on the entire room. Large objects in a room hide a lot of accumulated dust under and behind them. Classic examples of this type of interior elements at home are sectionals, beds, sofas, armchairs, desks, etc. Be sure to give them regular domestic cleaning in order to enjoy freshly looking rooms. 
  2. During the regular domestic cleaning it is good practice to open the windows of the room currently being cleaned, but to close the doors leading to those that have already been cleaned, to avoid the transfer of dust from one room to the other.
  3. If you have a wooden floor, it is recommended to combine the regular domestic cleaning with suitable preparations for polishing similar types of surfaces in order to maximise the effect of your work and guarantee the better vision of your home. Leave cleaning the floor for the finish. The direction of cleaning should provide you with an exit from the room, and then close the doors to dry the floor thoroughly and prevent the accumulation of dust.
  4. Even if you tidy up at home and clean regularly, some of the dust and dirt gets deposited on curtains, windows, furniture upholstery and carpets. Therefore, it is mandatory to give those areas a regular domestic cleaning too.

In the hectic everyday life, the regular domestic cleaning seems like a mission impossible and we often say to ourselves “It’s left for tomorrow” or “I’ll do it at the weekend”. The problem is that when it comes time to tackle the tasks, we usually have to spend long and exhausting hours tackling the backlog of housework. If this sounds familiar and you don’t know how to break out of this vicious cycle, try these 7 simple tactics for regular domestic cleaning. 


  1. Vacuum, wash the floors, beat the mats and dust regularly. Kitchen counters also need regular cleaning.
  2. Get rid of excess packaging by not forgetting to sort paper, plastic and glass separately.
  3. Clean up spills and organise kitchen cabinets on a regular basis. Check regularly for expired foods, spices and herbs.
  4. Organise wardrobes and drawers with clothes and underwear, as well as shoe cabinets. This way you will find the ones you need faster when you are rushing to work in the morning and the children to school.
  5. Vertical surfaces do not collect as much dust as horizontal ones. Therefore, the regular domestic cleaning of these areas is often underestimated. But they should also be wiped regularly with a soft cloth moistened with furniture cleaner.
  6. Sort your documents into separate, labelled folders. This will save you a lot of searching time when you urgently need to present a document somewhere.
  7. Clean the bathroom after you shower or at least after every few showers. Although the bathroom does not have furniture or carpets to collect dust, it is one of the places that gets dirty quickly. An easy way to keep this room hygienic is to take 10 minutes to clean after each shower. 


Final thoughts 

Regular domestic cleaning is mandatory if we want to enjoy a clean and fresh home. If you regularly clean and tidy it will become an organic part of your everyday life and will not weigh you down. It will even become a pleasant daily exercise for you. That way, when it comes time for Spring and Autumn cleaning, you’ll already have a large part of it done.
