It is spring, it seems (in some parts of the world). Then, the big spring offensive against dirt and dust starts.
I am right in the middle of such operation, as we speak.

My favourite music, while cleaning the house, is the album:  The Best Of Chet Baker Sings.
It is beautiful, melancholic music. An album that I take wherever I go on long journeys. The music blends with any climate or landscape, whether it is the tropics or the north pole.
Now there is a drawback to this album.  When sweeping (concrete) floors, the broom makes a sound like brushes on a snare-drum. I tend to move to the rhythm of the music. Most songs are slow, so to keep in sync with the groove and make progress at the same time I have to play sweep double-time. And... to often I have to stop, ...amazed, even after having played that record so many times...  I simply have to listen.

This one has a great tempo for sweeping floors: Chet Baker - But Not For Me
or Chet Baker - Let's Get Lost

Sweeping double-time Chet Baker - I get along without you very well
