Top tips for cleaning motivation

July 29th, 2013 Category: Industry News

Cleaning isn’t fun at the best of times, but it does have a significant bearing on your productivity and outlook, which is why finding the motivation to spruce things up will vastly improve your life at home and in the office.

The Huffington Post has recently documented ten ways to boost your motivation when it comes to cleaning chores. Like most tasks, cleaning is only as painful as you choose to make it, so by applying some of the publication’s tips, you may find uncluttering your lifestyle and sprucing things up rather therapeutic.

First of all, crank the music up. By compiling your favorite songs on a playlist you will get swept away (excuse the pun) in your cleaning duties and feel far more energised and ready to get to work. You may even find yourself going again when the last song finishes or even using the polish can as a microphone as you inject a little fun into the clean.

If you don’t have the time to tackle everything at once, try breaking your cleaning requirements into bite-size pieces and doing one small task a day. Compile a plan before you start noting what needs attention and the order in which it should be done. For office workers, putting together a quick spreadsheet is no task at all and you can set reminders to get you going each day.

It can be useful to use new products when doing the cleaning, both to help in your duties and keep things fresh and interesting. Considering green cleaning products is a great way to achieve this, and there are many homemade solutions which can be put together with everyday household products.

Of course, if you still can’t find the motivation to clean the office up or simply want someone to ensure the place stays clean, hiring a contract cleaning company such as Nviro will keep the working environment in good shape everyday.
