Baseboards! The chore that typically gets forgotten! How in the world do they get so dirty? Do you even remember when you cleaned them last? Will they be noticed by your guests? Floors and walls are easy to remember to clean, but it's simple to overlook the few inches of baseboard that stand between them.
There are few places in the country or state growing as rapidly as Asheville. The region’s rapid expansion was evident before the global pandemic, but since 2020, the population has boomed exponentially. You can see it in the ever-changing skyline and plethora of new neighborhoods in and around the city. This was not what people might have expected when the world first began shutting down.
Like many other towns and cities across the United States, Asheville was greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Businesses in the area were forced to shut down or greatly reduce their operations, resulting in significant financial losses and job losses. However, many businesses in the area have managed to survive the pandemic and have even thrived since.
Restaurants, for example, found creative solutions for reaching their patrons. As customers were worried about going out, many businesses in Asheville started offering curbside pickup and delivery services to make it easier for customers to safely and easily access their products and services.
Let’s be honest- a kid’s room is not usually the cleanest room in the house. Especially if you spend a lot of time at home, then you know how messy your child’s room can get on any given day. There are toys, crayons, half-finished art projects, and clothes seemingly everywhere you look.
Do you have kids and pets running through your house daily? How about those same kids and pets who sneak into the bathroom when you aren’t looking? The weekly cleaning tasks are expected, but the repetitive, nuanced ones you weren’t expecting seem to hit at the worst times.
It’s always when you have company coming over that you look around your house and see fingerprint smudges and wet dog nose streaks across clean surfaces. Of course, you’ve already cleaned those surfaces three times this week.
One of the most pesky cleaning tasks as a new or seasoned homeowner is finding a way to clean your glass shower doors. (Keeping them clean is a different story.) Especially when something like the shower is used several times a day, it can feel nearly impossible to keep it clean from streaks and smudges.
Life is busy. Life is, in fact, so busy that it’s easy to feel like you have no free time for the things you enjoy anymore.
Remember when you used to spend your Saturday mornings sleeping in late, and you reserved your Sunday mornings to enjoy a coffee shop and brunch downtown? The weekends used to be a guaranteed break for relaxing and doing the things you enjoy.
Now life has changed, it’s gotten busier, and it’s harder to find the time for those things you once enjoyed. The weekends now seem to be filled with the never-ending laundry and dishes, followed by a dirty bathroom and a lawn that still needs to be mowed.
These weekly chores seem to swallow the little free time left in the week. Your time is precious, so why not maximize your efficiency and get back to doing the things you love?
