I once saw a picture with a catchy caption that says.. “A clean house is a sign of a wasted life”. The photo made me laugh because it can be used as a good excuse for people who don’t clean their house often. Honestly, I don’t clean my house too often because my schedule won’t allow me. However, I set a specific day to clean it for sanitary and health purposes.
Today, I have decided to clean the house. I call it “general cleaning day”. It’s where I have to re-arrange the house furniture and everything in it so I can remove all the dirt and dusts that have stayed under cabinets, tables and sofas for a very long time. Most of the time, I spend a whole day cleaning the house alone. I don’t have a spacious house but that gives you an idea how meticulous I am when it comes to cleaning.
House cleaning can be tiring but at the same time fun. I consider it as a healthy way for me to keep my body moving as I don’t exercise often. However, I am allergic to dusts and cleaning chemicals which is quiet a big problem. Most of the time, I end up having allergic rhinitis, colds and worse asthma. That is why I end up leaving the cleaning thing to a maid who offers house cleaning services.
In other countries, they have cleaning services that offers organic cleaning materials especially with carpet and rug cleaning. They use organic cleansers which is safe for the house owners as well as for our environment. If you are living in New York City, you can actually find an area rug cleaner ny who will provide you with organic cleansers and you will be assured that no harsh chemicals can trigger your allergies. I hope we have something like this in the Philippines one of these days. Cleaning can now be healthy as we all want it to be.
