Tips on How to Clean a House

Many people start cleaning their homes but end up spending twice as much time as they would have preferred while they only accomplish half of what they had originally planned.

House cleaning is a tough job which requires organization and sequence. Not every person is able to handle such amount of tasks for less time. So, here are some strategies for making the biggest impression in less time, shared by cleaners Twickenham.

Know where you are going to start from and where you are going to finish i.e. make a plan. This focuses your efforts preventing you to get off task therefore reducing time wastage and accomplishing more. Usually, it is very difficult and rare to clean the whole house from top to bottom. Whether your cleaning job is quick or complete, certain details make your house look cleaner. First and foremost you should target those places where germs and pathogens love to hang out – the kitchen and the bathrooms as well as along the folds. Put triangle folds in your toilet paper and hang your towels with military precisions. Especially on stairwell leave vacuum cuts in the carpet since this is the first thing you see when you enter the house. To make your house scented, find a clean smelling product, dab some on your cloth and wave it around the house. As a final touch, wipe some on your front door so as it’s the first thing you smell when you enter the house.

Cleaning Do’s and Don’t’s

  • Dilute your cleaning products
  • Wipe mirrors and doors using vertical then horizontal strokes to avoid swirling patterns
  • They say a little goes a long way so don’t apply products directly to furniture. Just spray or dampen your cloth while washing instead.
  • Don’t worry if you don’t have a big chunk of time to clean, just concentrate on one or two rooms.
  • Finally and most importantly, don’t make cleaning a chore. You may try and concentrate on those things you like doing the most.

One more tip is hiring professional cleaning services. There are many cleaning companies that will provide you professional house cleaning maids who will clean your home instead of you. This will save you much time and efforts but will cost you some money. The decision is yours.
