A new study by cleaning technology company Kärcher finds that most Americans do not like to clean up when having guests. 34 percent of those polled said they were most likely to clean up, and to spend more time cleaning, when they were entertaining friends. This compares to 24 percent for parents, and just 9 percent for dates. The full report also includes interesting insights about generational differences when it comes to cleaning.
- Americans are most likely to clean—and spend more time cleaning—for their friends (34 percent said so). Parents, on the other hand, get less special treatment at only 24 percent.
- Only 9 percent of respondents said they’d clean their home before a date arrived.
- Americans are less inclined to clean for guests and that inclination varies depending on who their guests actually are.
“According to a recent report from Kärcher, “the global leader in cleaning technology”, while Americans spend about 3 hours and 20 minutes cleaning their homes on average, they are less inclined to clean for guests than you might think, and that inclination varies depending on who their guests actually are.”
