As we welcome the arrival of International Cleaning Week, it's the perfect time to roll up our sleeves, grab our cleaning supplies, and embark on a journey to refresh and rejuvenate our living spaces. This annual celebration reminds us of the importance of maintaining a clean and tidy environment for our health, well-being, and happiness. Join us as we explore tips and tricks to make the most of International Cleaning Week and transform your home into a sanctuary of cleanliness and clarity.

1. Set Clear Goals:

Before embarking on your cleaning spree, take a moment to set clear goals for what you hope to accomplish during International Cleaning Week. Whether decluttering your closet, deep cleaning the kitchen, or organizing your home office, having a plan will help you stay focused and motivated throughout the week.

2. Create a Cleaning Schedule:

To make the most of International Cleaning Week, break down your cleaning tasks into manageable chunks and create a schedule for each day. Assign specific tasks to each day, considering the time and energy required. By spreading out your cleaning efforts over the week, you'll avoid feeling overwhelmed and ensure that every corner of your home goes untouched.

3. Declutter and Donate:

As you clean and organize your home, declutter and purge any items that you no longer need or use. Sort your belongings methodically, separating items into piles to keep, donate, or discard. Letting go of excess clutter creates more space in your home and promotes a sense of mental clarity and freedom.

4. Focus on High-Touch Surfaces:

During International Cleaning Week, pay special attention to high-touch surfaces that harbor germs and bacteria. Disinfect commonly touched surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, countertops, and electronics regularly to reduce the spread of illness and keep your home clean and hygienic.

5. Embrace Eco-Friendly Cleaning:

Choose environmentally friendly cleaning products and methods to minimize your impact on the planet while keeping your home clean and fresh. Natural cleaning solutions such as vinegar, baking soda, and lemon juice are effective, affordable, and non-toxic. Incorporate reusable cleaning tools such as microfiber cloths and mop heads to reduce waste and save money in the long run.

As International Cleaning Week draws to a close, admire your hard work and bask in the glow of your sparkling, clean home. You've transformed your living space and cultivated a sense of pride and accomplishment by setting clear goals, creating a cleaning schedule, decluttering and donating, focusing on high-touch surfaces, and embracing eco-friendly cleaning practices. Here's to a fresh start and a clear mind as we prioritize cleanliness and well-being in our homes and lives. Happy International Cleaning Week!

How do I get my free cleaning visits?

ChirpChirp's ChirpPerks is a bonus bonanza that dishes out a whole month's worth of complimentary cleaning sessions sprinkled throughout the year. The more often you have us clean, the more free cleanings come your way.

Here's the scoop:

Go weekly and you are cleaned four times in most months. But when a month stretches to five weeks, that fifth one on us.

Bi-weekly?  Enjoy two sessions per month typically. Sneaky three-week months? No worries, the third one is our treat.

If you are on the schedule every 4 weeks, revel in one pristine performance eleven out of twelve months but the one where there's two cleanings, the second one is complimentary.
