As both a mom and a stay at home wife, it is not easy to juggle both aspects of life. Children are incredibly demanding, which means there isn’t enough time in the day. As a result, the other jobs that need doing, like cleaning, are often left alone. Cleaning is not a nice job, but, unfortunately, it is necessary because no one wants to live in a war zone. To make sure you do the job properly, you need to attend to every aspect of cleaning. That means you have to do the dirty jobs that everyone hates. If you leave them to build up, they will cause multiple problems and your fancy palace will be no more.
Cleaning the Toilet
One word describes the toilet, and that work is yukky. No one wants to clean anyone else’s urine because that might be the most disgusting job in the world! However, when there is a buildup of dirt and grime, the toilet can become covered with a layer of limescale. Not only does that lime scale look and smell terrible, but you also have to see it every time you go to the bathroom. No one feels comfortable going to the bathroom on a toilet that looks like it could spread diseases. Plus, the limescale can be bad for your health because it gives off bacteria.
Cleaning the Pipes
If you do this properly, it is even more disgusting than cleaning the toilet. Pipes are full of waste and rubbish that you have to handle physically to clean them correctly. If you just throw some bleach down the drains or the sewers, you run the risk of waste overflowing. You don’t need me to tell you that is a problem you want to avoid at all costs. Getting your hands dirty from time to time will make sure that small issues don’t escalate into massive ones. Unfortunately, that is rule 101 of sewer drain cleaning! When you have to unclog drains or try and remove blockages, always make sure you have a pair of rubber gloves handy. Not even the manliest man likes the sensation of waste against their hands.
Cleaning the Gutters
When you compare the two above, cleaning the gutters doesn’t make you wretch as much. In fact, it quite benign in some regards. However, there is only one way to clean the gutters and that is by hand. When you clean the toilet and the drains, you can use cleaning products and tools to minimize the contact with the dirt. With gutters, you have to put your hands right into the heart of the mess and start extracting it into a garbage bag. And if you don’t, the gutters will overflow and snap under the pressure of the waste. That will cost you a lot of money or time to get someone to repair the problem when you could just dive in and hold your breath.
Sorry, but every homeowner has to tackle them at some point.
