5 House Cleaning Tips
House Cleaning Tips
Cleaning up the house is a great way to make your home feel cozier this winter. While it can be a daunting task, there's no need to fret. Here are five house cleaning tips from Agent Clean.
1. Organize the Clutter
The best first step is to go through the house and pick up any clutter. This could include trash, random items, or out-of-place belongings. By clearing the clutter first, you leave yourself a good workspace to clean. Consider dusting or vacuuming off small items before putting them away if they are dirty or dusty.
2. Focus on the House, not the Room
An easy way to prevent feeling like your in a never ending cycle of cleaning tasks is to focus on the house as a whole, not on each individual room. Choose a single task, like vacuuming, and vacuum the whole house. Then move on to dusting or glass cleaning, and again do the entire house. This will be more efficient that doing each task for each room.
3. Organize your Supplies
A sure way to make cleaning more stressful is not knowing where your supplies are when you need them. We recommend keeping all of your cleaning supplies in a small caddy or bucket. Soaps, cleaners, paper towels, disinfectant, gloves, etc. can all fit in a container that is easily carried from room to room instead of searching for individual supplies as you need them.
4. Cleaning Team
If you don't live alone, try getting the whole household involved. Cleaning as a team is faster, more efficient, and can be much more fun than tackling the task alone. Grab your family or roommates and make it an afternoon. Delegate tasks and operate as a team and you'll have your home looking great in no time. Maybe celebrate with pizza and soda after?
5. Exterior House Cleaning
Don't forget about the outside of your home! If you own a small pressure washer, it will work great for spraying off the deck or the concrete. Be sure to use the right tip so that you don't damage the surface you're cleaning. If you're unsure about how to use your pressure washer properly, or you don't have one, consider finding an exterior cleaning company like Agent Clean.
