Dusting and sweeping among the Philippines’ most ‘stressful’ cleaning tasks, according to data
Dusting and sweeping are among the most stressful cleaning tasks in the Philippines, according to data collected by the House Cleaning Portal Cleanipedia.
National scale Data was based on the proportion of more than 800,000 cleanup-related tweets analyzed last month. It used geotagged keywords and tweets that were categorized as “stressed out” using a sentiment analysis tool and a gender classification tool.
“We analyzed each tweet with TensiForce, an academic tool that detects stress levels in short snippets of text based on the tool’s word classification. Tweets were categorized as stressed using the following numerical scale: -1: no stress, -2: low stress, -3 moderate stress, -4: high stress, -5: very high stress,” Cleanipedia explained. .
It found that 32.1% of Twitter users surveyed were stressed about dusting, while 30.4% of users were stressed about sweeping, followed by polishing (29.6%), vacuuming (28.8%) and laundry (27.1%)
Those who were the most stressed when it came to tidying up were the most likely to Capix at 38.3%. Residents of Manila Metro placed last on the list with 34.5%.
Some Twitter users (37.4%) said the most stressful room to clean was the bedroom, while bathroom storage ranked second with 31%.
It also showed that men are more likely than women to complain about cleaning, with 67% of the former tweeting and 33% of the latter tweeting.
The clutter of a messy living space is linked to high stress levels, according to a Research study.
Cleanipedia’s Regina Ocampo said the key to easing the burden of tidying up is “taking on small, manageable day-to-day tasks.”
“Small, very manageable tasks you can do include making your bed each morning, wiping down surfaces and cleaning up after yourself, such as putting things away when you’re done and putting dirty laundry in the hamper,” he said. she said in a statement.
Ocampo pointed out that the best way to distribute tasks is to establish a cleaning schedule.
“Have an honest discussion with your family or partner about how and when to tidy up the house. One proven method is to establish a cleaning schedule that tells each member of the household what to do and when,” Ocampo said.
“Change this frequently so tasks don’t get too boring. If there’s a task that a person doesn’t particularly like, let them trade with others,” she added.
The House Cleaning Portal representative also urged parents to encourage children to perform cleaning tasks as part of their daily routine.
“Don’t criticize the mistakes your kids make when they tidy up – they’ll learn much better with encouragement. You might also want to motivate your kids to tidy up by rewarding completed tasks with incentives like spending money,” she argued.
