Most people would agree that they find the task of cleaning their house something of a chore. However, it is one of those things that does need to be done, so finding some tips on how to make the process that bit easier are a much welcome thing. If you are unsure on whether you should be vacuuming or dusting first and if you are cleaning your kitchen correctly, then keep on reading.
Clear Away The Clutter
Prior to even starting any cleaning, you should make your way around the house and clear everything away and put it into its place so that you are not obstructed by anything during the process. Also by doing this, you should always be able to find something that you are looking for and it also gives you the chance to declutter your home.
Clean The Entire House
Rather than just focusing on one room or area of your home at a time, it is much more efficient to do it all at once. As you do each of the individual tasks involved, such as mopping, vacuuming, and dusting, you will become much better at each of them and so will be able to do them in a quicker time and without as much effort.
Disinfect All Surfaces
As you are cleaning your home, make sure that you take special care to use multi surface cleaning pads to wipe down all of the countertops and surfaces in each and every room. It is also important to disinfect parts of your house that are used and touched regularly, including things like light switches, telephones, television remotes, appliances, and doorknobs.
Dust And Then Vacuum
Before you begin to start doing any dusting, ensure that if you have any ceiling fans in your property, then make sure that they are switched off. When dusting, focus your attention on the top of pieces of furniture, light fittings, shelving units, TV screens, ornaments, picture frames, and those areas that are generally hard to reach. This should be done prior to vacuuming. The same is also true for changing the sheets in your bedroom - this should be done before vacuuming the room.
Regularly Wash Your Cleaning Tools
Something that is often overlooked and easy to forget is the need to wash and clean the tools that you use to clean your house with. For instance, if you use a mop that is dirty or a vacuum cleaner that has a full bag, then they are not going to be as effective as they could be, thus meaning that you will end up spending more time doing the job than what you really have to. Also, by using unclean cloths, you could very well be spreading germs and bacteria around your home as you use them on various surfaces.
Follow these tips and your home will be spick and span in no time and will remain that way. Clearing t of dirt and grime will also keep you and your family in good health also.
