It can be difficult to find time to clean your home each day between work and family. Although you may not be able keep up with everyone else, there are ways that you can make cleaning a little easier.
These are some helpful tips for busy homeowners who want to clean up their home quickly and efficiently.
Is it not dirty? Don’t clean.
Busy people often make the greatest mistake of trying to clean everything at once. If it doesn’t look dirty or messy, it probably doesn’t have to be cleaned now. You can save time if you don’t have a reason to clean it (like a holiday or party).
Invest into a robotic vacuum.
A robotic vacuum is a great time-saver for carpeting or hardwood floors. Robotic vacuums are becoming more affordable and can be programmed so that they clean your floors at a time that suits you. This means that you will spend less time vacuuming, and more time doing what you love.
Delegate, delegate, delegate.
It is important to share tasks with others if you live together. This will speed up the cleaning process and prevent any arguments over who should do what. You can create a list of the tasks you need to do and assign them to everyone in your household.
Schedule some downtime.
Even if you are busy, it is important to make time for yourself. You don’t want to get burned out cleaning so make sure you schedule some relaxation time. You can do anything, from taking a hot bath to reading your favorite novel.
Store your cleaning supplies close to where you use them.
You’ll be less likely to use your cleaning supplies if you have to go all over the house looking for them. All of your cleaning supplies should be kept in one central place near where you will be working. It will increase your likelihood of using them when you need them.
Get fixed broken appliances at first shot
You will feel less productive if the appliances aren’t in the right place. You will be able to focus your attention on the important things and get them fixed quickly.
How about domestic assistance?
This is my advice for older workers who feel overwhelmed by house chores and are worried about their physical and mental health.
It’s great to have an extra pair with domestic help. This will allow you to concentrate on the important things and not waste time on stuff that doesn’t matter to you.
Don’t keep things you don’t use
You can keep the things you don’t use every day in a less accessible location so it doesn’t clutter your house. Or, it’s best to get rid.
Have fun doing
The journey is more important than the destination, as it’s often said. Doing house chores should be a joy. We should enjoy the process and not just focus on completing it quickly.
Listen to music
Enjoy your favorite music, watch your favorite TV show, or just have a chat with someone while you clean. This will not only make cleaning easier but will also make it more enjoyable.
Reward yourself with promises. This is a great way to quickly complete tasks.
Example: If I’m done with the dishes, I will let myself lay down for five minutes. Or, if I clean my entire house, I can order my favorite meal.
