Domestic cleaning is a common issue. And with our busy everyday lifestyle very often it turns to be a problem. When we are time-pressured, on a tight schedule or simply exhausted from work, sometimes domestic cleaning is the last thing we want to hear about. Then hiring a cleaning company like Pro Cleaning London is a great solution to the problem. But the truth is that not everyone can afford to pay for a cleaner. In such cases a few tips to make your cleaning easier and less time consuming are better than welcome.
Below we have several advices on domestic cleaning, which we hope you will find interesting and useful.
Clean on a Schedule
Be methodical and set a particular day of the week for cleaning a given part of your house. For example, you can clean the bathroom every Monday, kitchen – every Tuesday, laundry – every Wednesday and Saturday, and so on.You don’t have to deep clean each room every time of course. In the kitchen, for example, you can do a general cupboard clean, shelf tidying up and sanitizing on the first week, and the next week – thorough deep cleaning, including sink, oven, hob, extractor, microwave oven, kettle, coffee machine etc. There are, of course, some routine tasks that need to be taken care of daily like dish-washing, general wiping of some surfaces and sometimes laundry. They are not that time consuming, though, and rarely will be much of a burden.With time you will find out that cleaning on a schedule makes the job easier and less time consuming. On top of that you will have your home cleaner, tidier and more welcoming.
Keep all your cleaning materials and products in one place
At first it might sound strange to you, but it is a fact: If you keep all your cleaning materials and products tidied up in one place, you will always know where to find your window cleaner or floor cleaner or degreaser, if you will, when you need it. You can store them all in a plastic container, a box or a bag, so you can easily carry them around when you need them and as easily put them away in a safe place, away from children, when you are done with cleaning.
Don’t leave today’s work for tomorrow
Once you have scheduled a cleaning you should get on with it as soon as possible. Do not delay! The truth is the longer you delay, the worse it gets. Then you have it all piled up for the weekend and instead of resting, you spend it cleaning around the house.
-Start from making your bed in the morning as soon as you get out of it.
-When you see something that needs cleaning and you’re not pressured by time, don’t leave it for later. The sooner you get on with it, the sooner it will be out your way.
-Clear off the table once you are done with breakfast/lunch/dinner. Take all dishes away, wipe the table and sweep the floor from breadcrumbs.
-If for any reason you can’t wash the dishes, pots and pans straight away, fill the sink or a container with hot water and dish-washing liquid solution and soak them in, rather than leaving the food to dry on them. With this method it will be easier washing them later.
-If any oil or grease is spilled on any of the surfaces, wipe straight away with a dry cloth or paper towel. Don’t leave it dry, or you might have to scrape it at a later stage.
-Once the washing machine or dryer have finished washing or drying, take the clothes out and sort them out or fold them and put them away. If you have to do ironing, once again – do not leave it for later and let clothes pile for days. The sooner you get on with it the sooner you will have it out of your way.
-When you see the bin full, dispose of the rubbish right away and replace the bin bag. Do not let it start smelling bad as it is unpleasant and repelling.
At first you might find it a bit hard and boring doing the small cleaning tasks straight away, instead of leaving them for later. With time, though, you will realize that maintaining your home clean and tidy is much easier and less time consuming this way.
