Men need to step up the cleaning, new data shows
Category: Cleaning Companies
73 per cent of Brits spring clean their homes, with this usually taking place over one of the May bank holidays. However, while 76 per cent of women spring clean every year, just 67 per cent of men can admit the same.
In fact, 19 per cent confess that they never spring clean, compared to just ten per cent of women who fall into this category.
And if that's not bad enough, excuses for not getting involved in spring cleaning range from "can't be bothered" (33 per cent) to "I'm not very good at it" (21 per cent). 18 per cent of men claim that they don't know what to do when it comes to cleaning, while the most popular reason is "my house doesn't need it" (39 per cent).
Even those men who are helping out with the spring cleaning are putting in much less effort than their female counterparts, with women spending 15 or more hours getting the house clean and tidy, compared to just three to four hours by men.
Women even claimed that they wished that more could be done when they're spring cleaning the home. In fact, 33 per cent admitted that if they had some more help then they'd spend even more time cleaning.
So, this means that men need to try a bit harder this year to dig in and get involved with the cleaning.
If the task still seems impossible though, then instead of women doing all the work, call in professionals to help instead.
This way, both men and women can relax, knowing that their home is being spring cleaned to the highest of standards.
