Now that 2020 is here and the New Year celebrations are starting to die down, many people will start turning their attention towards their new year resolutions, thinking up ways to change or improve over the coming year.
Here at Apple Clean, we understand how important it is for our customers to save money, improve their level of fitness and become more inspired. So, wouldn’t it be good if you could do all three in one go? Well, by setting yourself some inspirational home-based goals, you can do exactly that.
Join us as we take a detailed look at some of the best ways to turn your home into an environmentally friendly, clean, stimulating and efficient place to live.
1 – Reduce your carbon footprint.
With climate change the talk of the town these days, going greener is becoming a more and more popular new year’s resolution. Whether it be choosing to recycle more regularly, use the car less or installing an entirely new renewable energy-based system, there are several simple ways to become a lot more sustainable.
In the home especially, you should avoid using energy-sapping electrical appliances, like dishwashers, tumble dryers and washing machines, as regularly as you do. If you do need to use them, make sure they’re actually full before you turn them on – otherwise, you’ll only be wasting your time, energy and money.
Also, make sure to turn all lights off in any rooms you aren’t using, and think about setting up a recycling program in your home. Getting organised with your rubbish can make a big difference to your home’s efficiency and even your mental health.
2 – Make it safe.
Safety is absolutely essential so ask yourself: is your home 100% safe and secure? If the answer is no, then this is something you’ll definitely need to change – and fast.
Go around your home and assess your property in detail, looking for any potential fire hazards or health risks. If, for example, you have overly crammed plug sockets, or are concerned that your home could have asbestos, these are both two key issues that could cause havoc later on in the year.
Also, ensure any of your carbon monoxide detectors are checked regularly and provide your kitchen with adequate ventilation to prevent mould from building up.
3 – Clean regularly.
As the old phrase goes, a tidy home is a happy home. Therefore, by setting up a schedule to clean your home on a regular basis, you will not only see a huge difference in your level of organisation, you’ll also substantially improve the overall atmosphere of your home.
Even the simplest of tasks, like throwing dishes and cutleries straight into the dishwasher rather than leaving them at the side of the sink, can have a positive effect. For more difficult tasks, like removing carpet stains or pressure washing the patio, think about setting up a contract with a specialist to suit your home’s exact requirements.
If you are looking for a specialist cleaning service and are based in the South East of England, then look no further. Contact our team today to book in your first clean of the new year.
