To be a respectable homeowner, you must be able to take care of your own home. Be it the interior or exterior space of your house, keeping it sparkling clean will not only make your neighbors envious of your property, but also reflect your positive personality. For some homeowners, they create a timetable or list of chores to maintain the cleanliness of their home. However, do not think that because one home has an intricate cleaning schedule, home cleaning becomes an easy task.

Sometimes, your home can be the only thing standing between you and your tasks; considering the size, space, furniture rearrangement, and appliances that you have in your house, you must be able to utilize and strategize every corner in order to give your home a spotless finish. Here are a few tips you may follow in order to keep your cleaning job simple, fast, and effortless.

Home Cleaning Tips

Make Gravity work For You!

What does gravity have to do with cleaning? Well, gravity, as we all know, is the force that is keeping you from floating off from planet Earth. Now, you may have noticed that when you try to go against gravity, you end up using a lot of energy just to get from one place to another; however, if you do not fight it and go with its flow, you feel like not an ounce of energy was used; this can be experienced when you are going up and down a flight of stairs. 

To make gravity work for you, always remember that the upstairs will always be the best place to begin. Cleaning your home from top to bottom will help reserve your energy and enables you to clean the remaining rooms of your home.

Use the Right Equipment

Sometimes using the wrong cleaning equipment will slow you down. When you are about to clean the entire floor make sure to bring the correct tools so that your tasks can be accomplished quicker.

Cleaning tools for bedrooms, living rooms, and the General Area

  • Vacuums
  • Brooms, Dustpans, or Mops (Depending on the flooring of the room)
  • Towels
  • Steam Cleaners (For carpets, rugs, and curtains)
  • Microfiber Cloths

Cleaning Tools for Bathrooms

  • Scrubbing Brushes
  • Buckets
  • Mops
  • Sponges
  • Squeegees
  • Toilet Brush
  • Old Toothbrush
  • Gloves

Even more tips: If a room has similar elements with another room (e.g. the tiled floors and walls of the kitchen and bathroom), then some of the tools meant for one room will work for the other.

Cleaning Products

When using cleaning products, use the appropriate ones for the situation. Using the wrong cleaning product might scratch and even damage the surfaces of the room; it is also possible that the surface was not cleaned because of the reaction between the chemicals and room did not work well.

Using home remedies are also an option; just remember to use products that have cleaning properties like vinegar, products with citrus, and baking soda.

Create a Schedule

To maintain the cleanliness of your home, you must clean it routinely. It doesn’t have to be every day, but cleaning your home once a year does not do anything at all. Choose a routine that befits both you and your home, so that you do not have to exert too much effort to do simple chores.

If you are facing impossible cleaning situations however, calling in the professionals will save you from going through unnecessary and ineffective procedures.
