Household jobs for January and the Start of the Year

After all the excitement of the festive period and New Year has drawn to a close, getting on top of household chores and cleaning jobs might not seem like the most appealing prospect. However, the benefits of a cleaner home greatly outweigh any short-term reservations you might have.


With the shorter days and cold temperatures, it’s an important time of year to ensure you have a welcoming, cosy home to relax in when coming in from the wintry weather outside.


Deep clean the oven

Cleaning your oven doesn’t have to be the arduous task we might associate it with. Using a steam cleaner can be a great aide when faced with the prospect of endless scrubbing, making it much easier to efficiently remove any baked-on grease and grime.

Having a clean oven will give you the opportunity to discover new foods and can encourage more hearty home cooking. A healthy diet and a clean home will contribute to good health and help to fight off illnesses throughout winter.


Remove limescale from your bathroom

In winter, long, hot showers and baths are undoubtedly one of the best ways to relax and warm up. The extra steam created can lead to increased limescale build up, so keeping on top of this will ensure your bathroom remains a relaxing space. Using a steam cleaner can make this process much easier, and certain machines are well suited to a variety of environments, such as cleaning floors, walls and fitting around bathroom fixtures.


Organise your shelves

Any book lovers will know how dust and dirt can build up on your books over time, and taking these out to dust every now and again will ensure your home is kept as clean as possible. This is particularly essential for people with allergies, but also helps ensure your home is an inviting space that looks and smells fresh.

Additional objects on shelves can also harbour dust and bacteria – cleaning any picture frames, putting out up-to-date photographs, and rearranging ornaments can also contribute to a new and refreshed feel to your home.


Clean your carpets

Whilst regular vacuuming helps keep your carpets clean, it only gets up some of the dirt, and in particularly high traffic areas your carpets might begin to discolour over time. If you’ve had your carpets a long while, or have pets or young children making messes, deep cleaning your carpet with a professional machine will get rid of any ingrained dirt and help restore your carpet’s colour and texture.


Clear out old clutter

A great task for those cold days when it seems there is little else to do, it’s amazing what difference a clearer space can do to beat the winter blues. Clutter can distract us and overwhelm our senses, and having a clear out can help us de-stress, improve our mood and even help heighten focus. You could also sort through files and drawers, ensuring your space is as organised as possible.


Spruce up outdoor spaces

If your garden has long since died back for winter, January is a particularly good time to clear out any extra garden waste that is cluttering up your outdoor areas. As well as providing a way to get out of the house for some fresh air and exercise, it’ll also prepare your garden for the regrowth that the onset of spring brings.

Using a pressure washer can give a new lease of life to your driveway, patio or decking and make it look like new again – ready for the summer months when you invite friends and family round to spend the lighter evenings outside.
