House Cleaning- Major Points Revealed

Who doesn’t want to come home to a house that’s clean and where things are neatly in place and organized? However, while we all want our homes to be clean all the time, it can be a real challenge to maintain a clean home. After all, where do you start cleaning? Cleaning can be overwhelming, especially when you’re literally facing a mountain of a job – things littered on the floor, desks and counters, cobwebs on the ceiling and fans, filmy windows, old newspapers and magazines piled up high everywhere, a sink full of dirty dishes, grimy stove tops, oven and microwave, stained carpet… the list goes on. It’s enough to stop any cleaning enthusiast dead in her tracks, her hopes of transforming the house into one that’s clean and tidy dashed.

But before you take out the rags and other cleaning supplies, do a little pre-cleaning first. Make sure everything’s in its proper place. Tidy up the place first. Pick up items littered on the floor and counters and put them away. This way, you won’t have to constantly start and stop vacuuming just to pick up things off the floor, or put the furniture polish down to remove old newspapers and magazines from the coffee table. Make no mistake about it – tidying is a strenuous activity, and you may run out of energy to get right down to the actual cleaning by the time you’re through tidying up.

The key, though, is to be organized. Before you start cleaning, get together the cleaning products you’ll need to clean an area or a room. A small bin that will hold your cleaning supplies together would be useful. You can easily carry the cleaning supplies you need, and quickly too. Make sure you have these essential supplies in your bin: rags, furniture polish, window cleaner, anti-bacterial spray, and carpet cleaner and re-freshener. Have the right cleaning supplies too, otherwise you’ll be wasting your time cleaning dirty spots with the wrong cleaning supplies. It’s best to clean something properly the first time than clean it wrong the first time and then re-do cleaning. And it’s also a good idea to include in your bin a few garbage bag. This way, you won’t need to run back and forth to the garbage can every time you pick up trash. Simply put the trash in the garbage bag with you.

When you’re done tidying up a room or an area, remember to start cleaning from the top (ceiling) and work your way down to the bottom (floor). Dust away the cobwebs on the corners of the ceilings and on the top shelves. Then do the windows and then finally the floor. If you need a cleaning checklist to help you get started, visit
