When the weather outside is hot, the last thing you want to do is spend your time cleaning. But hot weather can actually be a great time to clean, if you do it right. Follow these hot weather cleaning tips to get the job done without overheating:
Choose the right time of day: The cooler hours of the morning are best for hot weather cleaning. You’ll not only get cleaning done during the cooler hours but also have more energy than you would at the end of the day. Absolutely avoid midday when the sun is at its hottest.
Divide the chore list up: Don’t try to tackle everything at once. Break your cleaning tasks into smaller chunks that you can handle over a few days. Pair the more physically intense chores with some less intense chores to break up the effort so you can divide and conquer!
Enlist family to help: Cleaning with family or roommates can make the job go faster and can even be fun. Play some fun music and divvy up the chores between you to knock out your cleaning list. Remember that many hands make light work.
Use natural cleaners: Hot weather is the perfect time to use natural cleaners. Because they don’t rely on chemicals for their cleaning power, they won’t add any extra heat or toxic fumes to your home. Cleaning with solutions that give off toxic fumes like bleach is not ideal during the hot summer when you want to avoid opening windows.
Stay comfy and hydrated: When it’s hot outside, it’s important to stay cool and hydrated while you’re cleaning. Dress in light, loose-fitting clothing and drink plenty of water. Avoid caffeine as it can be dehydrating and make you tire out more easily.
By following these hot weather cleaning tips, you can get your cleaning done without overheating and while keeping your family safe from toxic fumes. Don’t have the time or energy to tackle your cleaning list this summer? Call The Clean Up Club and we’ll help you clean it up!
