Kärcher Research Reveals Irish Spring-Cleaning Habits

Almost two-thirds of adults (64%) engage in spring cleaning of their home & garden, according to Kärcher’s research. The majority (68%) spring clean to have a cleaner home & garden to enjoy spending time in. However, many also see the mental and physical health benefits, with 52% thinking it’s good for their and their family’s mental health, and 45% also citing benefits for physical health. Additionally, 47% do it to feel a sense of accomplishment from tackling those bigger cleaning tasks.

Despite the benefits of spring cleaning, not all tasks are created equal and over two thirds (67%) admit they hate cleaning gutters, 45% don’t enjoy washing windows, and 44% dislike cleaning bins. Furthermore, 33% of respondents cite lack of the correct equipment as the biggest barrier to cleaning the outside of their homes, 33% cite safety concerns, and 32% simply find outdoor cleaning too physically demanding.
