Listen to This: Music Makes Cleaning Easier

Cleaning service Torrance - music makes cleaning easierMusic has the immense power to make us experience a wide range of emotions, among which is sheer, overwhelming joy. It also makes everything better and easier, even if it’s something as tedious as housework. You can play nursery rhymes to make cleaning more fun for kids, some hot jazz to keep things upbeat as you tackle a major clean-up, or your favorite ‘80s soundtrack as you prepare your home for a party. Whatever your preferences, be it classical, electronic or rock genre, music is your best friend. Cleaning service Torrance inspires you to incorporate music into your spring cleaning routine and spice it up.

The science behind it

Music makes us happy – it’s actually a scientific fact. Hearing music makes the brain release dopamine. Dopamine, in turn, gives us an energy boost, and that means music has the power to make us more productive. Music also makes repetitive work more fun, which makes it just the ideal cleaning partner.

What’s interesting is that lyrics can be distracting if you are trying to focus on learning something. But with cleaning, you don’t have to, so you can play whatever you like. What’s more, playing familiar tracks will improve your focus.

Get your blood pumping with fast tracks

Fast evergreen classics like Michael Jackson’s Billy Jean, Madonna’s Papa Don’t Preach or Queen’s Another One Bites the Dust have that awesome rhythm that makes you move even if you try to fight it. You might even come up with some new dance moves!

What’s more, the faster you move, the faster you’ll get the job done. In fact, go ahead and sing along to your guilty pleasure – the time will just fly by. You’ll almost regret having finished scrubbing your bathroom midway through The Greatest Pop Hits of the ‘90s.

Find relaxation with serene melodies

Granted, slow music does not have the same effect on everyone, but there’s no harm in giving it a go. Try it, and polishing your silverware or making your wardrobe nice and tidy might actually make you more calm and relaxed. Still, if you feel that you’re on the verge of dozing off, go back to Lady Gaga and turn up the volume.

Go retro and dance to the radio (like no one’s watching)

The radio is a nearly (and unjustly) forgotten invention, yet all the modern gadgets have failed to render it obsolete. Turn it on and get cleaning as it plays in the background. You might find yourself amused at what you might hear on radio talk-shows, not to mention experience the real thrill of suddenly hearing an old song you loved growing up.

5 Areas to Clean in Your Vacation Rental This Spring

spring cleaning vacation rental

Spring is on its way and the busy season is right on its heels. Before you know it, there will be fewer opportunities to plan and schedule a deep spring cleaning.

We’re sure you make a point to carefully clean every visible corner of your home when guests check out but we also suspect there are a few places that don’t get the same kind of consistent attention.

Is your place ready for the season ramp-up? Here are 5 areas to clean in your vacation rental this spring before things get busy.

1. Inside kitchen and bathroom drawers.

Your bathroom drawers may be fairly easy to open and spot dust, especially because they’re most likely to be empty. Kitchen drawers, however, are more likely to have gadgets and cooking tools taking up space and hiding crumbs.

Make a habit of removing all the items from the drawer once a year and using a damp cloth to trap and remove debris from the bottom and corners of drawers.

Don’t stop with the kitchen and bathroom – check all the drawers throughout your rental.

2. Under large area rugs.

Your cleaning team makes a habit of vacuuming your large area rugs to remove dust but do they get under the rug to catch dust that’s collected below?

If your rug hasn’t been moved in a while, roll it up and give the bare floor a good run over with a vacuum or damp mop if your rug is covering a tiled or wood floor. It’s not a bad idea to do this quarterly to avoid a significant buildup of allergens and dirt.

3. Behind large appliances.

When was the last time your oven, refrigerator, and washer and dryer were pulled away from the wall? If you’re like most homeowners and vacation rental hosts, we’re going to guess it’s been a while.

It’s common for bugs to take up residence and expire behind these fixtures. Though you may not have a “problem” with pests and though your guests don’t see them, they’re still not houseguests you want hanging around.

Ask your cleaning team to make a point to pull out your appliances and clean behind them. A quick sweep with a vacuum hose or duster should do the trick.

4. Inside the dryer vent.

If you offer your guests the ability to do their laundry, be sure to stay on top of this additional set of machines.

Even the most carefully maintained dryers can suffer from lint buildup, especially in the vent. This can not only cause your dryer to have issues but it can be a fire hazard.

If you’re not willing to clean out your own dryer vent and hose on your own, hire a professional HVAC company to do it. Alternatively, dryer hoses are relatively inexpensive; you can simply replace the entire hose altogether.

5. Closet shelving.

When was the last time you wiped down the shelves in your linen closets or pantry? These areas may not get much attention due to their usually being bare, but that doesn’t stop them from collecting dust.

Ask your cleaning team to quickly run a dusting wipe over them to trap loose dust that has settled over the course of the year. While you’re at it, check your kitchen cabinet shelves, too. Leave no spot undusted!

 

Don’t wait to get these things marked off your cleaning list. Though they’re important, take solace in knowing that you won’t need to revisit these anytime soon.

 

Feeling overwhelmed by adding these items to your cleaning list? Let MaidThis! handle your turnover cleanings for you! We’ll get you set up and ready for your next check-in in no time.
