Back-Saving Cleanup Tips

Back-Saving Cleanup Tips

There is nothing more frustrating than trying to speed through your cleaning chores so you can enjoy your weekend only to throw out your back or wake up sore the next day from nothing more fun than doing laundry, am I right?

Rather than throw out your back, you can employ these tips to keep your back happy!

  1. When buying tools, invest in leverage!
    Long, sturdy handles with good grips that you can operate easily with or without gloves are a must. Adjustable angles and lengths are also very helpful – and many tools can be attached to better handles for exactly this reason. Don’t be afraid to customize tools meet to your needs!
  2. Try a different angle
    Homebuilders don’t always place appliances or fixtures with cleaning in mind. Even so, you can still try to figure out the right angle to approach a cleaning task BEFORE you’re stuck with your arms in the air. If you’re curious about how to clean something safely, don’t hesitate to ask us for help!
  3. A stocking + a vacuum tube = a magical suction device that won’t eat toys
    No joke. A stocking placed on the front of a vacuum’s detachable cleaning tube can help you pick up toys dropped behind the couch, lost items in the back yard, or make quick work of messes that require a lot of pickup.
  4. Ask for help
    Seriously. Rather than outfitting your cleaning bucket with grabber claws or adding potentially dangerous floor gliders/wheels to appliances, you should give us a call. Appliances are heavier than they seem and nobody needs to throw out their own back just to have a clean home. We’re experts in cleaning everything – easy-to-reach or awkward, we’re here for you.
