5 Tips to Clean Your House Professionally
If you think your house cleaning tasks are not bringing the desired results, then these tips may help you.
Have a Plan and Order for Each Task
The best way to really get a hold of making cleaning much more efficient is to have a system in play.
Do things in a certain order, and time each room. When it comes to certain rooms like the kitchen, they can easily get messy super fast, and in order for them to feel inviting all the time, then you must clean them regularly.
Over time, you can figure out how to clean your kitchen in around 20 minutes and really get the job done. This way, your kitchen will be spotless and ready for any meal.
You’ll also find that if in the bedrooms for example, you start off by removing the sheets, clearing the clutter, and then dusting, things will get done pretty fast.
When you clean the floors, don’t just start at random spot- start from one corner of the room and do it in a manner where, when you’re done, you end up outside of the room. If you sweep and mop in the same direction then you can take less time by taking wider strides, left to right.
It’s all about putting a system in play, and this will certainly cut your cleaning time in half while making it much more effective as well.
Have All the Things You Need With You
Something that is extremely time-consuming when it comes to cleaning the house is having to go back and forth to different spots in the house to get the appliances or products that you need.
What you have to start doing now is get yourself a caddy that will hold all your cleaning utensils. It should have wheels and plenty of space so you can put everything in it and wheel it around with you as you go from room to room to clean up. You’ll see how much time this saves you.
Keep Your Cleaning Tools Clean
Something that really contributes to making the cleaning time last for ages is using items to clean that are not entirely clean themselves! What happens is that more dirt adds on even as you try to clean.
This is why you need to ensure that all your towels, brooms, mops, and so on are cleaned on a regular basis so that it can take you less time to get the desired effect.
Use the Right Tools and Products
Many of us are guilty of not really paying attention to the products and thinking, if it cleans, then it can be used to clean anything. This is so wrong!
If you don’t use the right products on the surfaces that they’re made for, they might make them look unclean and take longer, and will also damage the surface. You need to also use the right tools to clean certain surfaces.
Take the windows, for example, if you use a cloth or newspaper, it’s going to take you a considerable amount of time. If you use a squeegee, however, you’re going to have a window without any streaks at all, done in half the time it would have taken you with the other items.
Learn a Couple of DIY Tricks
There are a couple of tricks that you can do yourself as a means of lessening the amount of time and effort spent on cleaning tough stains.
Using mineral oil for example on your sink every once in a while, keeps it looking clean and keeps the rust from forming around it. Lemon and vinegar are also great ingredients that will help you to get rid of stubborn grease on countertops and for buildup in the bathroom.
Do a bit of research and you’ll find a lot of really cool hacks using natural ingredients that will make cleaning that much easier for you, which means less time spent.
When you clean your home, you need to do it in a strategic and smart manner so that you can get everything done in no time.
