Spring cleaning is one of the many tasks that can take up a lot of your time. It is definitely a challenging chore that even the most hardworking person would not want to do alone. Fortunately, there are ways to do house cleaning faster and more efficiently.
Here are some ways to effectively clean your entire house without expending all your energy.
Establish a System
Plan a scheme on how you can clean your house faster and stick to it. If you think you are better off cleaning one room at a time then moving on to the next part of the house only when that room is thoroughly cleaned, then do it. The key is consistency. When you make it a routine, cleaning becomes easier, and you will be able to do it half of the time.
Keep Tools in One Place
Have all your cleaning tools ready. If you can, put them in one container and somewhere where you can easily reach them when you need them. You can do the job half of the time if you do not have to keep looking for tools when you need them. Better yet, put them all in a bucket or caddy and take them with you while scrubbing every part of the house.
Use House Cleaning Services
Professional house cleaners are your best options if you have no time to do the house chores yourself. House cleaning services are skilled at cleaning homes and removing unwanted dust and dirt in every nook and cranny of your house. They may be able to raise the quality of your home’s indoor air and boost the entire ambiance with their expertise. Window cleaners, for instance, can make your windows brighter. They can remove all contaminants that may have lodged in your glass panes. They can eliminate all signs of acid rain, oxidation, and hard water that may have made your windows look dull and unappealing.
This should be first on your list if you are to do the cleaning yourself. Clean all the mess on your table, chairs, furniture, and cabinets. Put away toys, magazines, books, and any other things scattered on your floors. If you are no longer going to use them, better put them in the trash or donate them to someone who needs them. These things can only accumulate dust in your home and make it look messy if they are not properly stored away.
Dust, Vacuum, and Wipe
Start with the ceiling and the fixtures on them. When you have cleaned all the dust from them, clean the furniture, top of cabinets, knickknacks, picture frames, and any other fittings on the floor. This way, you will ensure that no dust will be left when done with the cleaning process. Some people start with dusting their furniture or with vacuuming their floors before giving attention to their ceilings, which is wrong. No matter how you clean your floors or everything on the floor, it will still accumulate dust even before you are done if the ceilings are not cleaned and gotten rid of dust.
Scrub Sinks, Tubs, and Toilets
Include your floor as well. You may also use commercial cleaners to make sure that you can remove all stains, dirt, and any other blemish on the sink, tub, and toilet. Stains caused by minerals in the water can be stubborn and hard to remove, but they will likely come off with the help of commercial cleaners that you can easily buy in supermarkets. Just be sure to use only cleaners that have no harsh chemicals in them to ensure your health.
Never forget this when cleaning your home. Germs and viruses can circulate in the air without you or your family knowing it. Disinfecting regularly can help ensure that your home has not become a haven for bacteria and viruses. Disinfect your kitchen, dining area, countertops, furniture, light switches, remote controls, cabinets, and every part of the house. You can make a disinfectant solution by mixing apple cider vinegar and 1 cup water. You may also purchase a commercial disinfectant that contains safe ingredients if the vinegar and water solution does not seem to work.
Finally, clean the tools. All the cleaning implements you use in cleaning your house can get dirty themselves. They may also accumulate unwanted organisms, such as viruses and bacteria that may be harmful to your family’s health. Cleaning them can help ensure that your house is entirely cleaned and safe for your family to live in.
