Having Worked As A Housecleaner, Here Are Five Things You Won’t Do

Working as a house cleaner has provided invaluable insights into cleaning, organization, and maintaining a tidy living space. However, as I move on from this role, there are several things that I’ve learned not to do, both in my personal life and in my approach to cleanliness. Here are five things I won’t do after working as a housecleaner:

Procrastinate Cleaning

One of my most significant lessons is not procrastinating when cleaning. I’ve witnessed firsthand how a small mess can quickly escalate into a daunting task. To maintain a neat and organized environment, I’ve decided to tackle cleaning tasks promptly, preventing clutter from piling up.

Underestimate Regular Maintenance

As a house cleaner, I’ve seen how neglecting regular maintenance substantially increases effort during cleaning sessions. As a result, I won’t overlook the significance of routine upkeep, such as wiping surfaces, vacuuming, and laundry, to prevent a buildup of dirt and grime.

Impulse Buying Of Cleaning Products

Working in various homes has taught me that not all cleaning products are equal. While purchasing the latest cleaning solutions is tempting, I’ve learned to research and choose products wisely. Instead, I won’t succumb to impulse buying and will opt for effective, environmentally friendly options that align with my values.

Cluttered Personal Spaces

A cluttered living space can contribute to stress and hinder productivity. Having organized countless homes, I now recognize the value of keeping my areas clutter-free. I aim to maintain a serene living environment by implementing intelligent storage solutions and regular decluttering.

Neglecting Self-Care

Cleaning can be physically and mentally demanding. Through my experiences, I’ve come to understand the importance of self-care. I won’t overlook the need to rest, recharge, and indulge in activities that bring me joy, allowing me to approach work and personal life with renewed energy.
