Grab a timer because the secret to fast cleaning is to limit yourself to five minutes per room. The first time you do this, it will not be up to your usual standards but as each day passes you will find that you can completely clean a whole room in 5 minutes. Each day you do it, more and more clutter is being put away until eventually there is none left and the whole room can be done in a fraction of the time it would normally take.
We’ve all had the situation where we would rather ignore the door than risk someone seeing how untidy the house is. Tidying the house is boring, nobody likes to do it, but it is something that needs to be done so why not get through it as quickly and efficiently as possible?
Obviously, you won’t clean the kitchen and do the dishes in 5 minutes but get in the habit of cleaning and putting away dishes as you use them so they don’t build up in the first place.
Get rid of anything that does not belong on the counter tops and put them away in their proper place, wipe them down and sweep the floor. This could take a little longer than 5 minutes, but after a few days you will be amazed at fast it can get done.
Spray the bath / shower with a cleaning solution, give the toilet a quick once over, wipe and rinse the sink and taps disinfect the top of the toilet. Turn on the bath taps / shower to sluice away the cleaning product, sweep the bathroom floor and could even have the carpets cleaned professionally by carpet cleaning Cardiff and then get rid of any laundry that may be laying around.
You will have days that you won’t have to do all of the above, because it has already been taken care of in the days before. The more you do these 5 minute cleans, the easier the task will become.
Depending on how many of these you have in your home, this could be worth several 5 minutes. For the kid’s rooms, you may have to use your 5 minutes just picking up laundry and taking out cups and dirty clothes, and then making the little angels clean the room properly when they get home.
The living room
The living is usually the room that gets the most untidy, because everybody uses it. Over the course of a few days, you should be able to fit a lot into that 5 minute window. You should, for example, be able to pick things up, vacuum / sweep the floor and generally put the room back to the way it used to be – nice and tidy. You can even consider using carpet cleaning Caerphilly team for this if you want cleaner carpets.
Just 5 minutes a day and in a few days you will not flinch or hide when somebody knocks on your door, afraid that they will see an untidy home.
