Lose your excess baggage

Here’s a test to figure out your own personal surface area-to-volume ratio. Pick any room in your house, and count the number of surfaces that are free from objects otherwise unrelated to that surface.

If that number is greater than the number of children you have — no children, no excuse; your surfaces should be pristine and pile-free — you may be suffering from Disorder Disorder.

The Absorbing Tale Behind the Mop in Your Home

Ironically, long-haired dogs can be the “worst offenders” of dirty floors, according to Toronto’s Nick Kaczun, founder and CEO of Lustre Luxury Cleaning & Services.

Pet hair that isn’t removed regularly “starts sticking to floors and baseboards making it really hard to clean,” says the business owner, who took a shine to the profession 16 years ago.

Dog or no dog, a good floor mop can be your best friend, says Kaczun, whose cleaners use one with a microfibre head that’s washed, dried and reused.
