Cleaning up London

Top tips to spring clean your home

Ali

It’s that time of year where your house deserves a serious makeover. We’re not just talking about a general sweep or some light dusting – we’re talking about that yearly spring deep-clean that will transform your house from messy and mediocre to sparkling-clean five-star-hotel standard.

It’s going to take some hard work, which is why we are joined today by The Handy Squad, handyman services in London, who are going to share some of their top spring-cleaning tips.

How and why you should clean your home office

Ali

Since the beginning of the pandemic, working from home has become part of the ‘new normal’.

Whilst remote working is not a new concept, professionals are having to adapt to this new style of work. It’s safe to say it has brought with it several challenges.
