House cleaning is something that we all dread. It’s repetitive, yet time consuming at the same time. Unfortunately, this is just something that has to be done. During the winter months, we enjoy muddy floors.
During the summer months, we enjoy dusty services. The key to house cleaning is to make it as fun as possible. Ensure that you have some music playing in the background which will ensure that you are not completely bored to tears throughout the process.
Here are a few tips to ensure your house is as clean as possible, as quickly as possible.
One of the things that can really slow you down is not working methodically. If you are not working in a methodical manner then you will find that you re-clean places multiple times; that is time that could be spent relaxing.
Ideally, you want to map out the cleaning process in your head. Always clean from left to right, simply so you know what you have and have not cleaned. Alongside this, always start from the top and work your way down. If you were to dust a desk after cleaning the floor, you’ll end up with dust on the floor and you will have to start again!
Employing Service Providers
Some jobs are just not worth the hassle. A typical example is window cleaning. If you time yourself including the time it takes to get out the ladders, equipment and clean the windows, you are probably talking a about a few hours.
The cost of a window cleaner is minimal and therefore, it makes sense to have them clean the exterior of the property, whilst you clean the interior. On an unrelated note, cleaning off a ladder is extremely dangerous, so you can avoid this danger.
Get Some Help
The chances are that you are not the only one that lives in the property. If you are not, get everyone to help. Trying and make your cleaning schedule fit into the weekends.
Even if you have a reluctant spouse or child, they will quick pitch in to help when you ruin their video gaming session or relaxing reading time. Just explain that if you work as a team, this is a job that can be completed in no time. Generally a deep clean of an average property will take less than an hour if the whole family helps.
Using The Correct Supplies
Using the correct supplies will help to save a lot of time. Forget multi-purpose cleaners. What you need is a specific cleaner for a specific job. For instance, a multi-purpose cleaner will enable you to clean an oven, as it does have a small amount of degreaser in it.
Of course, it will probably take you ten times as long to clean using multi-purpose cleaner as it would if you were using a specifically designed oven cleaner. Oven cleaners are degreasers and usually it’s a case of a 2 minute scrub to getting it as good as new!
