Fast House Cleaning Checklist

Clean each part of your home in sections

When we come into a home we usually section of the house and do it in bits. For example, if your home has wooden floors, we aim to get the floors done in one go. We do the entire house covering all areas where there are wooden floors. Generally, if there are wooden floors, we would leave this until last.

The tasks that take the longest time or the most extensive work we generally try and knock that out first. We do this so that any anxiety or stress in regards to the double work is reduced.

Put Your Equipment Close By

When all your equipment is together you can easily access everything and work with the tools needed to get the job done. Generally, if you have a backpack, trolley, basket, or any other means to hold your tools, this is ideal. If you have a larger house or you need extra tools to clean, we suggest hiring the cleaners and getting a house cleaning service.

Sweep Daily

When sweeping areas of high use, you end up reducing any build-up on the carpets or other floor areas. We recommend sweeping daily to
ensure cleaner your house is easier and faster. Make sure you are well equipped can have a decent broom so that sweeping any dirt or dust is more efficient. If you have a less than a quality broom, you may just spread the dirt around causing more mess.

Vacuum Often

Pulling out the vacuum cleaner and giving the high-use areas a once-over is a great way to minimize dust and any sort of build-up in living areas. When you vacuum makes sure to start on the outsides of the room and move your way into the center. Vacuuming often ensures that the process to clean your house is faster and much more carefree. Put some music on and do around of vacuuming.

Disinfect Shower and Bathroom Areas After Use

If you have an all-purpose cleaner, make sure you give your bathroom areas a quick once-over when you’re done using them. We also recommend using a squeegee and giving the shower a wipe down with that as well. When you do this you cut down the time it takes to clean a bathroom, but also reduce the build-up of grime and mildew when cleaning this way.

Wiping Down Surfaces

We also recommend using a different cloth and spray for other surfaces. These may include tops of tables, mirrors, door handles and other surfaces around your home. You would be surprised whats lurking on a bathroom door handle or other surfaces around your home.

Putting Clothes Away After Doing The Laundry

We recommend neatly folding and putting away your laundry once its done. If you have used a drier in the process this may or may not increase the amount of dust and build upon the clothes. If you leave the clothing out it may gather and contribute to dust build-up in your home. If you use a clothing line or clothes horse, make sure you hang it out straight away.

Regularly Emptying Bins

When you reduce the waste build-up in your home this can save you time doing a full clean, or reduce the time it takes for professional residential cleaners to work on your home. Usually emptying bins are included in service however if it is empty already, this is one less task for us.
