11 Best Cleaning Tips for Rapid House Cleaning

Everyone loves a clean and pleasant house but in today’s fast-moving world many people have limited time to invest in cleaning and maintenance of their properties. Then, there are novices that are not sure about whether they should vacuum or dust first. They wonder whether they should clean the bathroom before the kitchen or vice versa.

Therefore, today we will be providing you with tips that will help you in making the most of your time when cleaning your house:

1. Perform a Specific Cleaning Task for the Entire House at a Time

Cleaning becomes more effective and efficient if you pick a specific task such as vacuuming, dusting, or mopping and perform it for every room in your home at a time instead of cleaning the bedrooms, the kitchen, bathrooms, and other rooms in the house one by one. Doing cleaning of your house this way helps in preventing you from feeling that you’re stuck in a never-ending cleaning process.

2. Gather All Your Cleaning Equipment and Tools in a Caddy

Whether it’s a caddy, tote, or bucket, having every tool and equipment you need for cleaning in one place makes it much easier to perform your cleaning tasks on time. This way you won’t be wasting time looking for equipment and tools while you are cleaning.

3. Dust and Vacuum

Before you begin dusting, ensure that switches of fans on your ceilings are turned off. When dusting your focus should be on furniture tops and undersides of shelves, picture frames, handrails, TV screens, and knickknacks. For areas that are difficult to access or reach, like upper shelves and blinds, tie a piece of microfiber cloth to the bottom of a broom or mop. Don’t forget to change sheets in bedrooms prior to the time you start vacuuming.

4. Clear the Clutter

One thing you should do before you start the process of cleaning your household is to go to each room in the house and pick up the clutter. After you are done with picking up clutter such as magazines, old sneakers, paperbacks, etc. then decide what you want to do with these items. You can either put these items in a store or can donate them to people who need such items.

5. Disinfect Countertops and Surface Areas

Go through each room of your home and wipe all the hard surfaces such as electric appliances, cabinets, countertops, light switches, doorknobs, telephones, and TV remotes. Disinfect all of the above-mentioned surfaces, especially the ones that are frequently touched as those are the ones that are more likely to carry germs and bacteria. These days, coronavirus disinfection spray is the most important thing you should do.

6. Wipe Mirrors and Glasses

First, wipe all the mirrors and glass surfaces in your home by using a slightly wet microfiber cloth. After, you are done doing the above then wipe and clean your mirror and glass surfaces with a dry cloth.

7. Focus on Sinks, Tubs, and Toilets

Never forget to spray cleaner on your kitchen sink, bathroom sinks, bathtubs, and toilets. Let the cleaner sit for a few minutes so that it has time to dissolve stains and dirt.

8. Sweep and Mop

First sweep all the floors of all the rooms of your home. After sweeping start mopping the floors.  Rinse the mop each time you complete a 4-by-4-foot area.

9. Keep Moving When you Vacuum

Don’t worry about vacuuming each and every area of your household. Just keep moving through your home, vacuuming through every one of your carpeted rooms one by one.

Tasks such as vacuuming carpeted rooms and upholstery, cleaning windows, waxing furniture, and washing bath mats and room rugs don’t need to be done every week. Instead, inspect the aforementioned accessories on a routine basis but when it comes to cleaning them do it twice or thrice a month.

10. Routinely Wash your Cleaning Tools and Equipment

An overlooked part of the cleaning process is the maintenance of cleaning tools and equipment. Using a vacuum having a full bag or a dirty mop is much less useful and effective, and you will end up spending a lot more time performing your cleaning chores.

11. Make cleaning a Family Activity

Making cleaning of your household a team effort is one of the smartest and most effective ways of cleaning a house fast. Plan the time schedule as well as the cleaning tasks that are to be performed by every family member in advance. Discuss your plan with your family so that to get everybody in the household on board with regards to the plan related to cleaning your household.
