Does it take you forever to clean your house? Yes, it can be really tiring and complicated. Sometimes, cleaning your own home can take a couple of days, especially if you have other things to do. In fact, it is an unending task. You just have to do it over and over again.
However, it doesn’t have to be that way all the time. In fact, there’s a lot of things you can do to minimize the time you spend while cleaning without dropping your efficiency level.
Here are some effective residential cleaning tips from the pros:
Devote a time for your cleaning
When you are cleaning your house, focus on what you’re doing. Don’t try to multi-task. You will end up spending more time when you try to do a lot of things at the same time. Make it a habit of allotting a couple of minutes for house cleaning.
Don’t use your mobile phone while cleaning
Let’s admit it. It’s difficult to log out and stay away from the worldwide web. However, if you really want to cut your cleaning time, you need to put that phone away and focus on what you’re doing.
Tune up your vacuum
Always keep your vacuum well maintained for maximum suction power and efficiency. Whatever type of vacuum you're using (canister, upright, bagged, or bagless), you need to clean your vacuum at least every month. Change your disposable bags, wipe the inside and bottom of the vacuum, and clean the rotating brush.
Make sure that you also bring your vacuum to professionals every year to make sure it’s working properly.
Do the easy things first. Start cleaning the low-traffic rooms first. It will be a really good warm up before you start working on more complicated rooms like bathrooms and kitchen. Depending on your household, it’s ideal to start cleaning the living room, home office, and the dining room.
Buy a Squeegee
Cleaning the shower and the tub isn’t really something a lot of us enjoy doing. Therefore, the best and the easiest way to reduce the cleaning is to buy a squeegee. Create your own system at home and involve your whole household to this process. Use the squeegee to wipe the walls, the side of the tubs, and even the floor.
