It’s a fact that not many people enjoy house cleaning! Sure, we may like the final result, but not the chore of it all. We all do it in one form or another because it has to be done, but the task of giving the home a good clean is a rather daunting one that is often put off.
Here are a few simple tips that will make the job of house cleaning easier, making the task far less cumbersome.
Reduce the Clutter
Dusting the surfaces of cabinets, bench tops, tables and the like is a task that can take quite a while if there are a lot of things sitting on top of these surfaces. For one, to effectively clean the space, each item on it will also need to be cleaned of dust, as well as the surface it sits upon.
In some homes, there are so many items adorning the mantelpiece that you can’t even see the tiniest space on top of it. When there is this much clutter to deal with when cleaning, it really is a turn-off.
Try drastically reducing the clutter on surfaces throughout the home. Put items away in cupboards or storage areas. Leave out just the essentials and a few decorative items.
Keep the Floors Clear of Debris
Being in the habit of just picking things up off the floor, or training everyone (if possible) to pick up after themselves and put things away not only makes the home look so much tidier, but it also makes giving the floors a vacuum or mop so much simpler. There is no running around collecting all the scattered items before the actual cleaning can take place. With the floors clear you can just dive right in.
Have a Cleaning Schedule
Perhaps a roster of some sort could be drawn up, with different tasks for each member of the household to accomplish on various days of the week. Having a planned schedule for cleaning will help make sure things get done regularly, will serve as a reminder to everyone, and ensure that mess and grime don’t get out of hand.
It’s much easier to keep a home looking good when cleaning is performed regularly. Plus, the actual cleaning tasks will be easier when there hasn’t been a build-up of dust, dirt and grime from months of neglect.
Develop a Cleaning System
While routines can be boring, having a routine in the way you clean will make the process faster and faster over time. Within a few months, once you have perfected your routine, you will find yourself getting the cleaning done in half the time it took before you developed a routine.
