Prospect of cleaning up 'puts downer on having guests to stay'
The prospect of having to clean up after guests have gone home puts a real downer on having them to stay in the first place, according to regular hosts.
Admiral Home Insurance questioned 2,000 UK homeowners about what their main bugbears of having friends or family to stay are, finding that the burden of cleaning the house after they've left is the second worst factor in inviting to them stay, behind only having to share a bathroom.
Other concerns when having people to stay include having to keep them entertained during their visit, feeling as though their personal space was being invaded and having to make constant small talk.
Noel Summerfield, head of home insurance at Admiral, commented: "I think our research shows just how much we value our privacy and personal space. A lot of have gripes about having guests to stay with us, but we're equally unhappy when we go to stay with someone else."
Admiral's survey also looked at which famous people would be the worst possible guests for respondents, with US presidential candidate Donald Trump topping the list of house guests from hell, closely followed by Katie Hopkins and ex-prime minister David Cameron, as well as former glamour model Katie Price.
Meanwhile, the guests that homeowners would most like to have stay with them included the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, singer Adele, Sir David Attenborough and James Corden.
However, if you don't have the prospect of one of these stars coming to stay with you to ease the dread of cleaning up after your guests have left, you can always call in the experts to take care of any domestic cleaning duties on your behalf. This will give you the opportunity to spend more quality time catching up with your loved ones, and you'll be able to put your feet up after they've returned home.
