Why does your home look dirtier when the sun shines?

Why does your home look dirtier when the sun shines?When the sun shines, everything feels brighter and more positive, making us feel happier. This includes the home – it is lovely when the living space is flooded with natural light and you can throw open the windows to let the fresh air in. On the other hand, sunlight has an annoying habit of showing up all the little marks and dirty patches around our home, and highlighting any dust that has settled on the surfaces. So, during the summer months, it’s more important than ever to keep on top of your cleaning (or share the chores with a professional cleaner), so that your home looks fresh, sparkling and summery at all times.

Keep on top of dirty windows

Sometimes, your home can be spotlessly clean, and yet look like it’s dirty because of the shadows cast by grubby windows. The state of your windows makes a huge difference to the overall look of your home. Not only are dirty windows unsightly, but the smudges and smears stop sunlight getting through the glass properly, meaning that your home looks duller and less sparkling than it actually is. By keeping on top of your windows (and cleaning them inside and out on a regular basis), you can make sure that your home looks as clean as possible at all times. In fact, it is often best to clean them on a sunny day, as this enables you to see any streaks or marks that you might otherwise have missed. Of course, if you have neither the time nor inclination to do this, a professional cleaner can do it for you.

A quick dust goes a long way

It’s amazing how quickly dust can build up in your home. You might feel like you’re wiping dust away every few days or so! Sadly, this is just the way it is. Dust forms quickly and surfaces need to be cleaned regularly so that dust doesn’t settle. Sunshine makes dust so much more obvious, too. While this is annoying, it can also be helpful, as it enables you to see more clearly the areas that need dusting, so that you can be sure you’ve cleaned as thoroughly as possible. The same goes for crumbs – if any rogue crumbs have made it onto your sofa or are lurking on your kitchen counter, they’ll show up in the sunlight! As we say, the only way to tackle this is with regular cleaning. If you don’t have the time to fit this into your schedule, then professional cleaning is a great option. Your cleaner will take all those niggly chores off your hands, so that your home looks as beautifully clean as possible.
