While everyone hates cleaning, everyone enjoys a clean home. Is there a faster way to clean your home?
Many novices don’t know if it is better to vacuum or dust first. Many people wonder if they should clean the bathroom first or the kitchen last.
This step-by-step guide is based on years worth of experience and will help you make the most out of your time while cleaning your house quickly.
Quick House Cleaning Tips
1. Do not clean one room at a time, but the entire house.
It is easier to clean a single task, such as vacuuming, mopping, and dusting. This will make cleaning much more efficient than cleaning the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms. This will prevent you feeling like you are in an endless cleaning loop, completing the same task over and again.
2. All your cleaning tools should be kept in one place: a caddy
It doesn’t matter if you have a bucket, a tote or a caddy; having all the tools you need in one place makes it easier to do the job. It’s easier to clean than searching for tools and you don’t have the hassle of putting them away before the next job.
3. Clear out the clutter
Before you start cleaning, make sure to go through every room and take out all the clutter. Consider whether to put away, donate, or throw out each item you find – old sneakers, magazines, well-read paperbacks and so on.
4. Vacuum and dust
Turn off ceiling fans before you begin dusting. Dust only the tops of furniture, the undersides, shelves, handrails, picture frames, knickknacks, and TV screens. Tie a microfiber cloth to a mop, broom, or other tool for difficult-to-reach places like blinds or upper shelves. Before you vacuum, change the sheets in your bedrooms.
5. Wipe glass and mirrors
Wipe all mirrors and glass surfaces with one moist microfiber cloth followed by one dry.
6. Clean countertops and other surfaces
You should clean all hard surfaces in your home, including countertops, cabinets, and appliances, as well as doorknobs and light switches, television remotes, and telephones. Some surfaces can transmit germs to fingers and faces so disinfect them. Mix one-fourth to half cup of apple cider vinegar or white vinegar with a cup water to make a nontoxic disinfection mixture.
7. Concentrate on toilets, sinks, and tubs
Spray cleaner on the sink in the kitchen, then spray it on the tubs, toilets, and bathrooms. Allow it to sit for a while so that the cleaner can dissolve any dirt or stains. Next, return to the kitchen and begin scrubbing. Make sure to clean the microwave’s interior. Make sure to clean the toilets afterward.
You should also make sure that your garbage disposal is clean while you are in the kitchen. You may not know the best way to clean your garbage disposal.
8. Mop first, then sweep
Make sure to sweep the bathroom and kitchen floors. Begin by mopping the corner closest to the doorway. Every four-by-4-foot area, rinse the mop.
9. Vacuuming is a continuous process.
You don’t have to vacuum every corner. You can just keep moving and vacuuming in the house.
You don’t have to do all the tasks every week. These tasks include cleaning windows and waxing furniture. You can inspect these accessories and make your own judgement.
10. Make sure to wash your tools regularly
Cleaning the house with your tools is an important part. You’ll spend more time cleaning if you use a mop with a dirty bag or a vacuum that has a full bag.
11. Cleaning can be done as a group activity
Cleaning a house quickly can be made a team effort by making it a team effort. Set aside a time with your family and assign tasks to each member. Cleaning together can be fun and will make your home sparkle in no time.
While you are cleaning, make sure you check for any home maintenance items such as a faulty faucet that could cause water damage.
