We want to share some news with you that you might find surprising – there are lots of women who love cleaning! The Real Simple website surveyed Facebook followers and found that 90 percent of them either liked cleaning or having cleaned something.
Of course, as our business is all about cleaning (we provide cleaning service Columbia, house cleaning Vienna, maid service Olney and more), we understand that love of cleaning but here’s our explanation for why this activity is the favourite of so many.
It’s a form of meditation. Cleaning can be calming, helping you to de-stress from your working day or from hours spent running round after the kids. A lot of people choose to clean accompanied my music or a Podcast. It can be perfect “me” time, and it can stop all those racing thoughts as you concentrate on getting surfaces perfectly polished or glasses sparkling clean.
It gives you a sense of achievement. If you have ever spent 15 minutes or so scrubbing a saucepan to get rid of the burnt on food, you will know exactly what we mean by this. There’s a huge sense of satisfaction to be gained as the crusted on food comes off. Cleaning can produce great results – tangible results and an end product that you can see.
It can be a bit of a work-out. If you spend a lot of time in an office, the likelihood is that you are spending a lot of time sitting. Most household jobs will require you to stand and move around – whether that is vigorously polishing a table, washing floors, cleaning skirting boards or running up and down stairs to tidy up laundry. Moving your body almost always makes you feel better.
It gives you control over your environment. Knowing where all your important paperwork is stored means you can find it easily when necessary. Clearing out all your clutter can make you feel in control of your life in general and a tidy, uncluttered environment can help us feel more at ease.
