Smart Tidying Up: 5 Ways to Clean Your Home More Effectively and Efficiently
For most people, tidying up their home is one incredibly burdensome task. However, to make home life comfortable and healthy, it simply needs to be done.
Everybody has a unique approach to cleaning up. Some like to get something done every day but would hire the professionals for deep cleaning services every now and then. Meanwhile, there are those who prefer to dedicate one (or two) particular day for thorough cleaning.
If you are one of the latter types, you probably are always bone-tired after cleaning. Dusting, sweeping, mopping, washing, and performing other chores hour after hour can be quite exhausting. To make matters worse, at times, as you go about all the tasks, your allergies also get triggered, leaving you even more physically worn out at the end of the day.
Here’s the real deal – if cleaning takes up too much time and energy, you’re possibly not doing it right. Professional cleaning services can get the job done right and fast, plus, the quality of their work is faultless. They get to do that because they know how to clean efficiently. It’s not about cleaning hard, it all about cleaning the right way.
How to Clean the Fast and Right Way
If you wish to easily beat the clock cleaning your house, here are five of professional tips for you:
1. Ask your family to leave you alone (make them take the pet, too)
If they are not going to help you clean the house, they might as well be gone while you tackle the clutter and dirt of your home. The problem with having your family at home when you are trying to clean is they tend to add to the work that you are doing.
Most of the time, when you have already cleaned the kitchen and washed the dishes, one would come to eat and leave additional mess for you to take care of. It will be difficult to stay motivated and on schedule if more things frequently come up for you to clean.
2. Get rid of all potential distractions
Turn off the telephone ringer and the TV as well. It’s important to just focus on the job at hand so you can build up flow and speed. When you are concentrated on cleaning, it will be so much easier to finish the day’s job much faster.
Clearing spaces of unnecessary items is always a solid starting task for a day of cleaning. Throw out the trash, pick up laundry off of the floor and the banister, and take out “empties” to the recycling bin.
You will be able to get into the cleaning groove much better when spaces are cleared of things that are not where they are supposed to be.
4. Use cleaning agents that can be used everywhere
Just using one cleaning agent for different parts of the house can make a whole world of difference in your productivity. Currently, there are multipurpose cleaners that you can purchase from the grocer. With such a cleaning product, you won’t have to lug around a big basket of cleaning supplies from room to room.
If you are all about only using organic cleaning agents for your home, all you need is vinegar. It is perfect for cleaning practically all kinds of surfaces. Not only that, it polishes and disinfects surfaces as well. Do not worry about the acidic scent because it goes away after a while.
5. Put all your cleaning essentials in a caddy or a tool belt
Professional cleaners are able to breeze through chores because everything they need is always within easy reach or on them. So, put your cleaning essentials or tools in a tool belt or caddy.
Some of the most important cleaning tools that you should always have on you are a tub of all-purpose wipes, dry chamois, a spray bottle of vinegar, and an old toothbrush (for tackling deep-seated dirt).
With these tips, you will get your house cleaning job done fast and easy, freeing up more of your time to do things that you actually love, or to treat yourself to a relaxing foot massage and pedicure or a full body spa treatment.
You deserve to use that free time for yourself because it is always a major feat to restore complete order and cleanliness to your home.
