Spring cleaning brings order to our homes and our heads: the word of Cleaning Therapy! Spring is coming, for house cleaning let’s rely on Kobold experts

With the arrival of summer, it snaps the “spring cleaning” operation and cleaning, of this spring that is about to arrive, takes on an even more important meaning because it takes us towards a season that seems to open the doors to a newfound normality.

Cleaning, tidying up, sanitizing in depth the house and everything that inhabits it, from sofas to mattresses, from curtains to carpets, through glass, shutters and floors, brings indisputable benefits, helps to clarify even thoughtswhile procrastinating and letting go of disorder can steal precious mental energy, preventing us from serenely carrying out other activities.

Experts call it Cleaning Therapy: dedicating ourselves to household chores allows us to tidy up and free ourselves from what disturbs us, not only on a physical level, but, above all, on a psychological level. Cleaning Therapy starts from the concept that, from an anthropological point of view, it exists a deep correlation between space and body: the house is in effect the space in which our body lives. It follows that the non-cleaning of the space that surrounds us is seen as a symptom of disorder as it brings confusion and contamination and never, as in the last two years, have we felt a strong desire to live in clean spaces which, in addition to giving us a sense of well-being, helped to make us feel safe. Cleaning the house also takes on the symbolic meaning of getting rid of emotional loads.

And just this year, this symbolic value could be even more significant because house cleaning would result in a cleaning of thoughts related to the period of the pandemic. Clutter causes stress and agitationon the contrary, order and cleanliness transmit peace, serenity and increase self-esteem. Household chores can offer us important benefits and turn into a stress-relieving exercise, as well as being a good workout for our physique.

However, it is equally undeniable that cleaning is tired and the commitment will be less tiring if we rely on an ally able to guarantee thorough hygiene with minimal effort, such as the Kobold VK 220 S cleaning system, compact, handy, powerful and TÜV NORD certified, suitable for allergy sufferers.

The elf vademecum for spring cleaning

To prepare for this demanding job it is essential to establish a correct sequence of actions. To optimize time and energy, avoiding unnecessary repetitions and moments of stress. Everyone can develop their own personal program respecting some important indications:

  • First of all, decluttering. Tidy up and dispose of the unused. Freeing the rooms from the superfluous makes cleaning work easier and saves time. As the Japanese Konmari method states “to tidy up the house and life”, getting rid of things that are no longer used improves self-confidence and ‘frees’ us from the past.
  • Establish priorities and timelines. Approaching domestic cleaning systematically allows you to dose time and energy and take care first of the less welcome or more demanding jobs, can further facilitate the work.
  • Proceed one room at a time. This will make it easier to complete the cleaning and satisfaction with the result will encourage us to continue. For someone it might be useful instead to act for a single activity, for example washing all the curtains or windows or cleaning all the carpets.
  • Starting “from top to bottom” is the general rule. It starts from the ceiling, removing the cobwebs, cleaning the top of furniture and cabinets. Then you go down, towards light points and chandeliers, windows and shutters or shutters, glass and curtains, shelves and furniture, doors and radiators, sofas and armchairs, beds, carpets and, lastly, floors. The reasons: the dust particles raised during cleaning take some time to settle on the ground: therefore cleaning the floors too soon could be a job that needs to be repeated several times.
  • Equip yourself with the right tools. There are many techniques used during spring cleaning: remove dust, deeply vacuum mattresses and carpets, wash surfaces and objects, glass and floors. For each of these activities Vorwerk Kobold has the right solution.
