How to Save Time When Cleaning Your House

Letís not kid ourselves, most of us avoid cleaning duty like the plague, and we seek out shortcuts at any given opportunity. This is why we made a handy little guide for exactly these people so we know how to get more work done in less time. So, letís get right into it.


Always Go From the Top Downwards

This is the most straightforward tip on this list. Gravity forces everything to go down towards the earth. Obviously, this affects dust, bacteria, and all kinds of messes. That is why you shouldnít approach cleaning from the most convenient part to the least convenient but instead go from the highest level to the lowest one. This way, all of the dust that is falling as a result of cleaning will fall to the places that you are going to clean up later! This way you donít have to clean up some places twice (or even thrice).

???????Always Empty the Debris Bag Before Vacuuming

Before you start vacuuming, it is recommendable to empty the debris bag. This is because the suction power of the vacuum is much stronger when using an empty bag. If you are planning a full-house cleaning session, then this is even more important since you wonít have to stop mid-way to empty the bag out.???????

Separate One Day for Clearing Out the Bigger Tasks

Have an entire attic to clean? 3 drawers to empty out and clean everything inside? When you think about these big cleaning tasks you will immediately feel destimulated and avoid doing them for as long as possible. This can lead to situations where you ignore a certain chore that you have been meaning to do for months (the garage has seen better days). The easiest way of avoiding this from happening is by designating a specific day for hard cleaning tasks. This will help you organize your time better. Instead of doing a barely passable job at cleaning the bathroom every day and being constantly reminded that you need to continue cleaning it, doing it all in 1 day will put your mind at ease and you wonít have to worry about finishing the work over the coming days.???????

Dust Before Vacuuming

 As our first tip has mentioned, you should always go from the top down. However, you can easily forget the right order and start vacuuming first and then dusting after it only to realize the mistake youíve made (God knows Iíve made plenty of these mistakes). This is why itís worth reminding you to always dust before vacuuming so you donít have to vacuum twice!

???????Brush Your Couch Clean

 A lot of people find it easier to just vacuum the sofa or couch because itís easier. But, is it better? You will never be able to fully clean the couch with a vacuum, as a lot of dust and animal hair will get stuck in harder-to-reach places. This is why you should opt for a brush because it will take less time to fully clean the couch (if you take into consideration the extra time you spend going over a single place with a vacuum over and over again, and trying to reach those harder places).

It can take some time to master cleaning your couch perfectly and getting in all of the good angles. Thankfully, house cleaning Melbourne services offer the most trained personnel that can do the job perfectly for you.

???????Utilize a Clutter Box

 If you are dealing with a place filled with a lot of dirty items that leave a lot of dust and dirt when cleaned, it can be extremely annoying cleaning the aftermath of cleaning. This is why you can just say ďto hell with this!Ē and put it in the clutter box. The clutter box saves you countless minutes (and possibly hours) doing extra clean-up duty. All you need to do is put the dirty things in the box and at the end of the day, make a single trip to clean up and put away all of the items you have gathered in the clutter box.

    1. Plan Ahead of Time

            It can be really helpful to know all of the things you want to do in advance. If you go into a cleaning session knowing exactly what you need to clean for the given day, you donít have to waste extra time thinking whether you could/should clean another room as well while you are at it. With a clear schedule, you know what needs to be done on every given day.

???????Become a Multitasking Expert

 The best way of cutting down on time is by multitasking. The task doesnít matter. Whether itís making lunch while cleaning the dishes or getting ready for work while putting away dirty clothes, you have an endless amount of combinations that you can do. By doing these combinations you can save a lot of time by doing tasks 2 in 1. The only question is how innovative you are at multitasking and combining tasks throughout the day.???????

Invest in a Small Handheld Vacuum Cleaner

 This one is pretty straightforward. If you have small cleaning duties and donít want to bring out the big guns with the large vacuum cleaner, you can just use the handheld vacuum cleaner in order to clean up the dirt fast and easily. It will, inevitably, save you minutes every time you want to use it since you donít have to go to another room and assemble the large vacuum cleaner. Instead, the portable handheld vacuum cleaner is always ready for use.

???????Invest in the Right Equipment

Convinced with the handheld vacuum? Now, imagine how much efficiency you can get out of using the best cleaning equipment technology has to offer! Using cheap tools will not only cost you more money in the long run, but they will also lower the efficiency you can get out of cleaning sessions. Meanwhile, buying high-quality, sturdy cleaning equipment will assure that you get your moneyís worth out of them with every cleaning session.


 Turns out that there are a lot of ways of cutting out precious minutes of our cleaning sessions throughout the week. Trust me, if you use these methods, you will start noticing the difference on a daily basis and how much you have improved. Till next time!
