Start at the top
It doesn’t matter which room you are cleaning, you should always start from the top of the room and work your way down. This is because of the fact that the dust particles in the higher surfaces would fall on the ground while cleaning and would eventually be cleaned up when the floors are cleaned at last. So dust your ceiling fans first and then wipe off the dirt from your furniture. Lastly, clean off all the dirt accumulated on the floors.
- Bedroom– allot 6 minutes for each bedroom. Strip all your linens and remake your beds. Put fresh sheets and tuck them properly under the mattress. Clear up all the clutter that has been lying around. If you are in a hurry, then you can gather them up in a basket or bin and keep aside inside a closet for later organization. Then wipe your furniture using a dusting spray and clean them with a microfiber cloth to make them cleaner.
- Bathroom– bathrooms should be given 7 minutes of time for each. Try to clean all your bathrooms together and then keep making round trips to clear and then spray the tubs and counters with a strong cleaner. While you let the cleaner soak up the dirt, clean the toilets. Come back to wipe the counters and also clean mirrors.
- Living and Dining rooms– 7 minutes for them these too. The first thing to do is clear up the clutter. Then go to dusting all the surfaces from top to bottom. Vacuuming should be the last step of cleaning.
- Kitchen– lots to do, so 12 minutes for your kitchen. Put all the dirty dishes in the dishwasher and then fill the sink with soapy hot water. Removable burner pieces from your stovetop should also be placed in the water and cleaned. Did you sponge in the soapy water and wipe counters, cabinets, appliances and other surfaces. Clean the floors at last.
This is one of the simplest ways to clean your whole house in a short time. But if this also seems too much for you, then you can always opt for affordable cleaning services to help you out.
