There might still be snow in some parts of the country but spring is upon us! This is often a time to get rid of the winter blues and give your house a spruce up armed with a feather duster, vacuum, cleaning products and good old elbow grease.

Cleaning might not be your favourite activity but it is a job that has to get done. It is not an activity that is easy on our body. Having to reach up, bend down and often twist repetitively in order to get the job done can frequently cause pain and injury.

So what can you do to prevent cleaning become the activity that spoiled your chances to enjoy your favourite past time or playing with the kids?

Please read on to find out how some simple changes in how you do things can make your life easier.

Here Are Some Spring Cleaning Tips:

  • Use a stepladder to make it easier to clean the hard to reach spots. This way you protect your back and shoulders and also reduce the risk of falling
  • A small trolley on wheels also helps so that you can have all your essential cleaning tools on standby without having to carry them around with you.
  • Lift from the legs, not from the back!  If you are doing this right you should feel the front thigh muscles (the quadriceps) doing all of the work.  If you don’t lift correctly you can damage your back.
  • Bend from the hips!  This requires some practice but will also protect the back.
  • Use both hands! Most of us are one side dominant.  However, with cleaning, you are better off alternating.  This means that your dominant side does not get overused.  So for example, start off polishing with the left hand and then with your right hand.
  • Take regular breaks!  We can all get lost in the task of cleaning and for some it is more therapeutic than for others.  However, a short ten minute break gives your muscles and joints a breather so that when you start again you are energised again.
  • Don’t do everything in one day!  It’s ok to clean half your windows on one day and the rest two days later.  Your body will thank you for it!
