No judgment. We all know that it’s next to impossible to maintain a sparkling-clean, minty fresh house all day, all the time. But having said that, there are many compelling reasons to fight the good fight to keep your house clean and in good repair. It’s more comfortable to live in a clean, attractive house. A tidy house looks better. A spruced up home says good things about you to your friends and neighbors. A neat, orderly pad gives you a better quality of life than a scruffy, disorganized mess. Consider these reasons why cleaning and sprucing up your home is not just desirable, but important.
- Something as simple as a loose upholstery nail can rip fabric or injure a guest. Dirty kitchen countertops, or a living room chair with a wobbly leg, are unnecessary safety hazards. Daily kitchen cleanings and regular furniture repair can prevent needless illness and accidents. Routine fabric cleaning and upholstery repair will prevent your furniture from posing a safety hazard and attracting insects and other pests. Litter free floors are much less likely to cause a tripping accident. Clean vents and air ducts keep pet dander and other things you probably don’t want to know about, from circulating in your home.
It Saves Money
- A stitch in time does indeed save nine. Routine cleaning and maintenance keeps small mishaps from worsening into big, expensive messes. It’s easier and cheaper to clean and repair proactively, rather than reactively. For example, a sofa fixer can often salvage a scratched leather sofa and make an expensive new purchase unnecessary. However, if the scratch is allowed to deepen into a wide rip, repair may be more difficult, or in some cases, even impossible.
It Saves Time
- It’s easier to do a little cleaning and tidying every day, than to wait until the place requires heroic measures. Litter tends to snowball over time; large piles of junk have a way of sucking up loose objects. It’s a huge waste of time to have to search for needed items at the bottom of a pile of clothing or papers. If you have to start your work day late because you couldn’t find your glasses or your car keys, your day is off on the wrong foot, and it might even make your boss mad.
It Improves Your Quality of Life.
- There’s just something satisfying and calming about a clean, tidy house. A tidy house isn’t stress-inducing. It doesn’t inspire anger, despair or frustration. It’s nice to live in a clean, orderly environment.
Of course, no one can keep their house perfectly neat and clean 24/7. But with only a little routine maintenance and repair, your house can be orderly, clean and a pleasure to live in most of the time. The key is to keep your house clean and your furniture repaired. Consider calling a furniture pro for your routine scheduled upholstery cleanings and needed repairs. It’s so much easier to keep your house in tip top shape, when you perform regular maintenance!
