House Cleaning Tips Made Easy

Cleaning the house is not an appealing job to most people. But you can remove the hassle and stress of cleaning your house so it’s not such a mammoth task! Here are three ways you can make cleaning your house a smaller, easier job.

Prioritise – make a plan

It’s far easier to tackle a big job like cleaning the house when you have a clear list of things to do, and a clear order in which to do them. Start with the outside: if you have gravel, stone, or concrete pathways leading to your house, chances are some of their debris has made its way into your house. Clear your doorways first and sweep away any excess dirt that might undo all the hard work you’re about to do. Hitting your doormat against a pole or a corner is also a good idea to rid it of any dirt.

When you clean inside, vacuuming is the best place to start. You can vacuum all the rooms in your house and that alone leaves a sense of accomplishment. With a big job out of the way, you can concentrate on the smaller tasks. Next, take it room by room. Don’t mix it up and try to clean your living room and kitchen at the same time; it just doesn’t work. Scrub away, wipe your surfaces, dust between the blinds, but take it step by step and take a break if you need to. You’re not a superhero, and cleaning a whole house is a huge chore.

Use items you already have around the house

You can make use of cooking agents, natural cleaning agents, and tools you already having lying around the house. In many cleaning situations, white vinegar is your best friend. You can use it by itself for deodorising and cleansing, or you can use it with water and other things like baking soda to create a mixture that lifts stubborn marks and stains. Mix it with water to make your windows sparkle or spray your shower walls with it to reduce mildew build up. Vinegar is an excellent cleaner for most surfaces and it will save you a lot of money.

Just a few quick tips:

Use paper towels rather than sponges because a sponge allows germs to spread more easily. Add a slice of lemon to your bin to take away any odour, and use baby oil to wipe away fingerprints on stainless steel. Put some dried flowers in a bowl for your own homemade potpourri, clean out your fridge once a week; it’s the small things that really count and add up to give you a cleaner home. There are many items you have around your house that will help you clean in less time without spending a lot of money.

Get someone else to do it

You shouldn’t have to feel guilty about having someone else do your dirty work, literally. Hiring a professional house cleaner ensures that your home is in its best condition. Professional house cleaners know the best cleaning agents to use on every surface and they know how to maximise the life of your clean. Many house cleaners also use environmentally friendly chemicals and cleaning agents so there are no toxic fumes around your house and you can rest easy that you are keeping the environment in mind. You should ideally get your house professionally cleaned now and then anyway to eliminate any dirt, germs, and potentially harmful bacteria that may be lurking around your home. Regular cleaning gives your home a fresh feel and a positive atmosphere and removes any harmful germs that may be spreading.
