Cleaning Tips for the Tidy Home

So many of us today are running around short on time. Whether you’re a parent, a student, single or married we all could use a little more time to spend it on the things that we love to do, like spend it with loved ones, go on holidays or simple relax in front of the TV.

Well, one of the best ways to get a little more time is to spend less of it on things that we don’t like, such as cleaning the house, disinfecting the bathroom, doing house chores, ironing and laundry.

If you want complete freedom from doing the dirty work then the best ways is to usually hire a maid or cleaning service. However, it is still a good idea to make sure that your house is in tip top shape all the time, even between professional cleanings.

To do that, here are some tips that will help you keep your house clean:

Make sure you have enough cleaning supplies

There is nothing more annoying than reaching out for the cleaning pad only to realize that you’ve run out of detergent. Checking your supplies regularly and keeping stock in a pantry or cupboard can go a long way in making sure that you’ll have what you need when you need it.

Make a checklist

A lot of time we start cleaning the house and when we’re done we realize that a major piece of furniture or a mirror was missed. It is always good to be organized and goal-oriented. Make a list of the things that you like to have clean all the time then write them down. Use the list next time you clean and be sure to go through every item and double check that it has been cleaned and passes the quality test.

Dust before mopping

Many people make that mistake. They mop first not realizing that the dust on the surface will cause streaking, not to mention the mop water will get dirty very quickly.

Use the dishwasher

If you have a dishwasher, one of the best things you could do to make your kitchen clutter free is to simply put the dirty dishes in it. Don’t put the dirty dishes in the sink, as that adds an extra step that you must take when it comes time to clean the kitchen. If you put them in the dishwasher you’ll have clear kitchen surfaces for work and the cleanup will be a lot faster.

Regardless of how often you clean your house, taking note of these tips will help you live a healthy and clean life. Of course hiring professional cleaners will go a long way in making sure that your house is deep cleaned on a regular basis.
