QUICK CLEANING LIKE A PRO: LET YOUR HOME SHINE
Are you exhausted, overwhelmed, and in need of some peace and quiet, but housework just keeps piling up? You want to do everything in a second, but it simply doesn’t work that way.
We’ve shared some essential advice on time-saving and efficient tips. If you’re in a hurry to clean your house, but still wish to preserve a high standard of cleanliness, here are four special tips that’ll change everything:
- SET A CLEANING PLAN AND STICK TO IT
Keeping a neat and well-organized house requires a certain level of dedication and consistency. To clean your house quickly and efficiently, you should create a practical plan first and determine a cleaning schedule you’ll follow without exceptions.
A weekly cleaning of your entire house will go a long way in ensuring faster cleanings in the future. Keep your checklists handy! It’s good to have basic cleaning tasks written down, as well as other cleaning duties that need to be done occasionally, to make sure you don’t skip any of them.
- DON’T GET DISTRACTED
When you’re on the clock, it’s very important not to get distracted. Leave your phone in another room and focus on cleaning. Easier said than done, right? Even if your phone and laptop are out of your reach, you might stumble upon some unfinished DIY tasks, or other miscellaneous distractions.
It’s important that you resist the urge to stop what you’re doing. Set other responsibilities aside and focus on your chores. Today is about the cleaning goals you’ve set!
- SET CLEANING PRIORITIES
Perhaps it’d be a good idea to postpone certain demanding chores such as deep kitchen cleaning. Instead, cover the basics first and deal with more time-consuming housework when you feel rested and energized. Naturally, washing the dishes and wiping the counters on a daily basis is a must, as well as dusting, floor sweeping and removing cobwebs. Prioritize!
- DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN CLEANING AND DECLUTTERING
Decluttering can often get in the way of efficient cleaning. If you want to clean like a pro, treat your house as a professional cleaner would. Any stuff lying around (aka clutter) is none of your concern. If it interferes with the task at hand, you can collect the clutter and sort through it once the cleaning is done.
