Do you feel that it takes way too long to clean your house? The good news is that in most cases that’s probably because you aren’t being very efficient, and there are several ways to fix that.
If you want to clean your house more quickly without doing a slipshod job, here’s six tips that you should follow:
• Clean by task and not room-by-room
One of the main mistakes that people make when cleaning a house is to try to clean each room individually. Instead of that you should pick one task (such as vacuuming, mopping, or dusting) and perform it throughout your house. It will definitely speed up your cleaning significantly and make it feel less tedious too.
• Get rid of clutter beforehand
The first thing you should do before you start to dust, mop or vacuum is to clear any clutter that may be lying around. Be sure to throw away anything you don’t need, and store away the rest so that it doesn’t get in the way.
• Make sure you have the right tools
Having the right tools can make a world of difference to the speed with which you clean your house. Some of the tools you will need include sponges, microfiber cloths, a squeegee, bucket, spray bottle, different types of cleaning solutions, and so on. Be sure to keep all the tools in one place so you don’t waste time hunting for them.
• Work from top to bottom
Whenever you’re cleaning you should always work from top to bottom do that you don’t miss anything and dirt doesn’t end up being knocked down to an area that you’ve already cleaned. As you can imagine this is particularly important when dusting or wiping furniture.
• Switch off fans when you dust or sweep
If you are dusting or sweeping you should turn off any fans (or air-conditioning). The last thing that you want is for the wind to blow the dust and spread it out more than it was previously.
• Schedule regular cleaning sessions
Split up tasks and schedule them regularly instead of waiting until your house gets too dirty and needs a deep cleaning. For example you could dust and vacuum on Tuesdays and Fridays, clean bathrooms on Sundays, wipe down furniture bi-weekly, and so on.
Starting to see how you can clean your house more efficiently and much more quickly? If you make it a point to follow these tips you should end up using a fraction of the time that you used to.
Keep in mind that the key to having to spend less time cleaning is to clean regularly so that dirt doesn’t get the chance to accumulate. Of course if it already has you may need one deep cleaning session to get started, or you could look at house cleaning services Singapore.
All said and done by cleaning more efficiently and quickly you’ll find that it is far less of a chore and you may even be less likely to put it off.
