Window cleaning among the most hated household chores
Category: Window Cleaning
According to the Daily Mail, a survey carried out by Oven Pride has revealed that washing down our panes is beaten only by that most dreaded of all tasks - cleaning the oven.
The research shows that the jobs we dislike most are the ones most likely to be neglected, with the average person having 12 chores on their to-do list at any one time.
Half of the people questioned as part of the survey said they struggled to keep their homes clean and tidy in addition to holding down a job and spending time with their family.
Three in ten admitted there is a domestic task that they've been putting off for a year or two, while one in five claimed to have let five years pass before finally tackling a seemingly unbearable job.
Yet doing so could be affecting our wellbeing. The research shows that almost half of householders have been kept awake at night thinking about the things that haven't been done around the home.
If cleaning woes are preventing you from getting some much-needed shut-eye, then perhaps it's time to call in the professionals.
You don't need to leave it all to the experts, of course. Simply paying for window cleaning services once a month or a deep home clean once a year could remove some of the stress.
Other household chores that made the top 20 most hated list include vacuuming the stairs, cleaning the extractor hood, defrosting the freezer and moving furniture to clean behind.
Fortunately, these are all jobs that don't need to be done every day, or even every week, so could easily be handed over to a cleaning company at a fairly affordable cost.
