It’s dirty work but somebody has to do it and I am willing to bet your the designated individual (I know I am) but do not spend more time cleaning then you’ve got to! Follow these spring cleaning tips to get your errands done quickly.
Alright, so all of us know that we must do spring cleaning on the home if we want our home to be clean and less stressful. If you are like me then some of the cleaning gets put off a bit in the winter with the rationalization the we have to be able to open the house up some to really get our home clean.
No problems. It’s soon to be spring so we must do the dirty work now. No more procrastinating. We can get fresh air in our homes and get our home clean but don’t spend more time then you will need to.
So without further ado here are some spring cleaning tips to get your job done fast.
1. The first spring cleaning idea is to produce a record of what you want to accomplish. For me this makes my job go super quick.
Why you ask?
When you make a detailed list of what you want to accomplish you’ll spend far less time wondering around your house doing so or that is. You require focused effort when doing spring cleaning or it’ll take forever.
So how do you make your spring cleaning checklist?
Well the first thing you need to do is to walk around each room and take a look at what you have not cleaned in a while. This includes fans, under couches, walls, etc.. Do not forget the corners in the ceilings.
A great way to get cobwebs is simply with a broom. A broom will reach up to the top of the wall with no problem so no scaling for you.
Go through each room and make a checklist of what you will need to accomplish that way you can go through each room and do it.
When you attempt to do spring cleaning with no checklist you will end up going from thing to thing without ever really finishing your first job.
2. Another suggestion for spring cleaning is to be sure you use the right cleaners for the job.
A common mistake made when cleaning (and I used to be guilty of this too) is that we use a couple of multipurpose cleaners to clean everything in the house. So far as spring cleaning hints goes this is important because with a multi cleaner for everything means that you will be spending way to much time scrubbing when you do not need to.
So what sort of cleaners if you are using for your spring cleaning?
You want to make sure that the cleaners you are using are the proper ones for the job. For example, if you are cleaning the bathroom you should use a bathroom cleaner that is made for soap scum. If you are not then you are likely to be spending way to much time getting your shower clean.
If you are trying to receive your floor back to it’s original color make sure you use a floor cleaner and actually use a scrub brush instead of just a mop. You will spend less time spring cleaning your kitchen floor with a scrub brush then you’d trying to make it sparkling clean with a mop and it will come out nicer. From the list of spring cleaning tips is painting your walls.
Technically this isn’t cleaning but painting your walls is an easy, inexpensive way to actually make your home shine and it is perfect to do in the spring as you need in order to have your windows open to paint.
If you would like your home to have a light airy feel to it select a light color. In case you have found a darker color that you love then paint one of your four walls with the darker colour and the remainder a lighter color. The contrast will be stunning.
4. The best of the spring cleaning tips is to understand how to clean your house fast.
When you’ve mastered the way to speed clean your house then your spring cleaning chores will be done lickity split and you will have lots of time to enjoy the spring weather rather than getting your house back up to par.
