Home Cleaning Tips

Home cleaning is a must for every home. We either do it ourselves or we hire someone to do the cleaning. It would be more simple if we hire someone to do the cleaning job. In such situation, the first thing to do is to determine what are the areas you want to clean and estimate how much time you will need. Then work out the cleaning budget. You can check out the average cleaning rate with reference to the local newspapers. You can also search the internet for relevant information. Interview the cleaning experts to find out in details pertaining to their cleaning services then get quotes regarding cost and what items are covered by the service contract and what are not covered. It is important to know how they do the cleaning job. What detergents are used? Are they safe for home use? How long the cleaning experts have be in business? It is always advisable to get reference for their services.

If you are going to do the cleaning yourself, it needs some planning before you start. Time is the most important factor. How much time is required for the job? How many persons will be involved? What we need to clean? With what detergents. These questions need to be answered. If we have very limited time, very little man-power, then the only way is to divide the job into smaller tasks and do one at a time. If we have limited time, but have plenty of man-power, may be we can have the job done pretty fast. It would be ideal if we have lot of time and plenty of man-power.

In most cases, there is little time and few man-power. Then, do one task at a time and work out the schedule that fit your own timetable.

Let us start cleaning one bedroom first.

First thing first. It is tidying up. Put all smaller items into cabinets and storage. Protect the bed with its cover from dust. Move out some big items from the bedroom if necessary. Your cleaning time is better structured by tidying the room first. In this way you are using your energy to complete the hardest part first rather then running out of steam halfway through the cleaning job.

The next thing that will make your cleaning more organized is to gather you cleaning detergents. You may want to get a bin that you can place the cleaning products in so it is easier to carry them around with you. A few cleaning products that you may use are glass cleaner, furniture polish, rags, antibacterial spray, and carpet cleaner and re-freshener. You can also carry around a small garbage bag around with you instead of running back and forth. Use the right cleaning supplies that will get the job done. It is a waste of time trying to clean a dirty spot with an inferior product. You will spend too much for your time re-cleaning the thing that did not get properly clean the first time.
