The UK loves to vacuum, polish, dust, sweep and clean up according to new research.

Indeed, as Spring cleaning reaches fever pitch the findings reveal that two-thirds of Brits give their home a regular clean, at least daily or weekly.

In fact, it breaks down to an equal split of 33% each, of those polled, between those who do the housework weekly or daily.

Some, 0.5% even clean their homes on an hourly basis!

Meanwhile, others appear to take a more relaxed approach to cleaning their properties, with just over 2% doing it monthly, almost 1 per cent doing it quarterly and almost 9 per cent claiming to never do it.

Catherine Hevey from Aroma Care Solutions said: “It appears that many Brits don’t need an excuse to spruce up their homes on a regular basis, whether it’s at the Spring cleaning time of year or any other time.

“Of course, it’s encouraging to see that the UK is a house proud nation overall and perhaps that’s not surprising as doing the housework can be immensely satisfying, as well as the obvious hygiene benefits.”

Further findings from the independent study found that the type of cleaning products was also an important factor for many, with almost half saying that using 100 per cent natural cleaning products was either essential, very important or nice to have.

Catherine added: “How we clean and what products we use is important for many people, with 10 per cent actually stating that using a 100 per cent natural cleaning product is crucial.”
