Some tips to help make things easier
An effective strategy in carrying out housekeeping duties involves taking things slow and pacing yourself.

Take breaks and be satisfied with your daily progress.

Those ultra-light stick vacuum cleaners such as a Kogan C7 Cordless or a Dyson V7 Cord-free vacuum are a perfect solution. Due to their light and easy mobility nature, they are operational with only the use of one hand. This makes them perfect for those individuals with mobility aids such as crutches or canes.
Another household cleaning tip includes robotic vacuum cleaners! Robotic cleaners have come a long way in recent years are perfect in cleaning your floors with minimal physical work. These vacuum cleaners operate themselves and are great for wheelchair or less mobile users as they can be programmed to work whilst you are out and or in bed, ensuring that you won’t risk tripping over them.
