3 Secrets to Cleaning Your Home in Half the Time


The fact is that cleaning up can be a hassle. Using the right supplies and planning, however, you can minimize the amount of time you would normally spend scrubbing the tile and removing mold and scale.

Here are some tips from the experts on how a professional cleaner can thoroughly clean your home from top to bottom quickly. Take advantage of these tips and tricks, and your home will be clean in no time.

Keep System

Debbie Sardone, a speed cleaning Services expert (and maid service owner), says cutting your cleaning time in half starts with a system. Cleaning the house in this order every time will help you save time: work one room at a time, and start and finish at the same spot in an area so you won’t have to run back and forth.

You have to be consistent if you want to reduce the time, Sardone says. There is a routine every time you clean, and the routine is the method. The method inherently speeds up the cleaning process rather than hurrying it up. You can clean your house in half the time. It’s not a gimmick.”

Clean Top to Bottom

By cleaning the blinds first, the dust from the blinds can coat your freshly cleaned coffee table. Instead of wiping the coffee table, then cleaning the blinds, clean the blinds first. Sardone suggests starting at the top of the room, like dusting a ceiling fan, and working your way down.

Furthermore, cleaning from left to right allows you to cover the entire room as opposed to darting around.

Sardone claims that most people clean an object, then look up and clean something else, and the dirt falls on the object you just cleaned. When you work from top to bottom and from left to right, you only have to clean the areas you’ve already cleaned once instead of twice.”

Keep Tools Ready

With all the tools and cleaning products you need at your fingertips, you won’t have to spend time walking back and forth to the under-the-sink cabinet. Besides an apron and a tool belt, Sardone recommends wearing an apron or a carpenter’s apron with pockets. Putting the cleaners into small, reusable spray bottles may be difficult if you have several large bottles of cleaner. Organizing your supplies with a caddy or bucket can also save you time.
