Clean and tidy houses are generally home to people with strong organizational habits. One of those habits is cleaning your home in the right order. If you are prepared with a game plan before starting, then you are more likely to thoroughly work your way through all of your home’s nooks and crannies. Cleaning your home in the right order will also help you prioritize what rooms needs cleaning the most. Follow these five steps to clean your home in the right order.
1.) Make a Game Plan, Starting with the Hardest Room
Deciding on which room may be the most difficult and time consuming will help you in the long run by organizing your cleaning time more efficiently. Sometimes we approach the biggest room first because it has the most space that needs cleaning. However, it’s often the smaller spaces, such as bathrooms and closets, that should be prioritized because of the amount of fixtures and items that need attention. Organize your schedule by starting with the most labor-intensive rooms, which will then make the other rooms seem more manageable.
2.) Start with Cleaners that Require Soaking
Go through a checklist of what cleaners and tasks will take the most time. Maximize your cleaning time by firstly loading up a dishwasher or laundry machine and applying bleach solutions to surfaces or fixtures that need time to sit.
3.) Organize Before Breaking Out the Cleaning Supplies
Organize any miscellaneous clothes, magazines, toys or whatever may be taking up space before dusting or using any cleaning tools. Once your belongings are in order, then you can start the real cleaning process without having any junk in your path. This will allow you to be more efficient with tasks, such as vacuuming, because the floors will be clear and prepped for cleaning.
4.) Dust and Sweep
Since dust spreads easily, be sure to thoroughly dust before vacuuming or mopping because some particles will most likely land on the floor. If this step is out of order, you could be creating more dirt later on with wet mopped floors or relocated dust in the carpeting.
5.) Mop and Vacuum
Vacuum hard floors and carpeting before sweeping to gather as much dirt with as little effort as possible. Then break out the mop on floors and tile that need it.
