Most people prefer to hire a professional cleaning service as a help for all those annoying little jobs around the house which, honestly, consume a huge amount of time and which everyone tries to dodge during the week. Additionally, the cleaning experts can make our house shine in much less time than it would take us to complete it. Hence the question, how do they get it done? Do they have any secret tricks that we are unaware of? What is their special cleaning magic?
To get to the bottom of this, we asked our cleaning specialists and here are a few of the best home cleaning tips they shared with us.
Clear the clutter
Hands up if you’re someone who tends to clean around things left on surfaces. Admittedly, this is something we might do to make haste during cleaning. The dilemma is that after this you will be left with some nasty ring marks. Even when you pick up and clean under the objects with a wet cloth, the same thing is likely to happen if you put them down immediately while the surface is still wet.
And here’s the solution.
Try decluttering for a change, try to eliminate any urge of putting things back by removing useless stuff from your rooms. The point is that you don’t need to hide things in a cabinet or donate everything, just to remove the things that are not in the day-to-day use. By doing this, the cleaning process picks up the pace, and a decluttered home gives off a fresher vibe from the start.
Arrange your appliances
When a professional cleaning team arrives to do a cleaning job they come equipped with all the necessary tools required for the task, or when a cleaning lady comes to your home she gathers all the needed products for the cleaning session before beginning. This saves precious time during a fast and thorough cleaning.
And here’s the solution.
Rather than keeping your cleaning appliances spread around and stored in different cupboards and on multiple different shelves just put them all together in a bucket, tray or in a caddy. That way, you can bring everything along with you while moving from one room to another without wasting time. If you have a big house, then make more than one of these organisers so that you can keep using one on every floor.
Create a cleaning routine
All cleaning professionals know exactly when and where they are needed and what time they are supposed to be done with the job. They are extremely organised to finish their jobs in a limited time. Sadly, most people don’t seem to keep this attitude.
The obvious solution is this:
To achieve your dreams of the best home cleaning possible, fix a weekly/monthly cleaning schedule, and when you get used to doing your chores, you’ll automatically gain speed in doing them. You can also set timers for yourself and try to beat them, turning cleaning into a game with which you will be excited to do everything faster and better all the time. The importance of making a schedule is only applicable if you stick to it!
