There are cleaning challenges every homeowner faces from dusty TVs, pet odour to muddy footsteps and kids toys strewn everywhere. Do you need a maid service? Hiring an expert cleaner will give you insight on the secrets housekeepers won’t dare tell you.
Find the right tools
Do not have too many specialty tools, you may not know how to use any of them to start with. Stick to tools and equipment that are absolutely necessary for cleaning. A cabinet full of tools that you never use will only collect more dust. To keep your home spic and span you will need a detail scrub brush, a few sponges, a vacuum, a plastic scraper, micro fiber mop and a feather duster.
A toothbrush comes in handy
A toothbrush is a great addition to your tool kit. Even the toughest grime can be taken out with a toothbrush. The bristles are the secret to cleaning in the tightest corners.
You need an organized caddy
Assemble your supplies and organize them in a shower caddy. One of the biggest differences between yourself and the pros is that they have all the cleaning products and equipment at their fingertips, whilst you are looking for your things all over the house. If you are going to waste time looking for products and tools the cleaning process in itself is going to be time consuming and challenging. So have your essentials where you can just grab them and start cleaning.
Most of us have a lot of clutter at home. The first step to organizing your home is to remove the excess stuff. Find a place to store your books, magazines and old toys before you begin the cleaning process.
Have a system
Don’t pick rooms to clean out at random, instead have a proper cleaning system. With a system in place you can focus on one task at a time and avoid getting distracted before you complete the entire house. And each room needs to be scoured from top to bottom in order to catch the dust.
Vacuum efficiently by plugging it in the central room. This saves you time instead of going in circles vacuuming every room, pulling out the cord and plugging it back in.
A fresh scent
Cleaning products in general have harsh scents that don’t leave your home with a good smell. You can mix some essential oils with your cleaning products like lavender, lemon or grapefruit to give it a better smell that is pleasant.
