Who doesn’t want to clean a house in record time?

With the pile of house clutter and the very limited time we have in attending the maintenance needs of our home), it is wonderful to think that we could finish all necessary cleaning in a very efficient and quick way just like a professional cleaner.Click To Tweet

So here are 5 tips on how to speed clean that would help you become more effective in the overall maintenance of your home:

1. Be organized

The very first thing that baffles even some experienced housekeepers is the part of the house from where they should start with. Normally, it is best to begin from the top down. Clean the top part of your house first, starting from the back while working your way towards the center of the floor or the steps. This pattern of work will help keep you from dragging the same dirt towards the part of the house that was already cleaned.

2. Keep a schedule

Set a specific schedule for your house cleaning.Professional cleaners do not say to themselves we will attend to your house the next time we get a chance. Instead, they maintain a schedule that is well organized. So make it a point to set up a regular cleaning schedule at your most convenient time, usually during weekends.

But don’t settle with setting a schedule alone. Be sure that you stick to it and be very religious with the routines. Also, never leave a job undone or half-done. No one else suffers but you because of the pile of unfinished work!

3. Keep yourself motivated

Limit distractions while you are working and increase your motivators to keep you going. You should never let minor events restrain you from finishing your work, say attending to your email or a nice television show. Also, try to find the things that would boost your motivation.

We all know that weekends should be our rest days but you must also know that unless you want to pay for a professional cleaning job, you should learn to encourage yourself to move from your couch or bed and grab the canister vacuum cleaner.Use upbeat music that would help motivate you to move a lot faster. Or set an exact time to beat, say an hour or two, to make you move a lot faster than you would usually do when unmotivated.

4. Wear the proper attire

Say goodbye to bleach-stained shirts by using a cleaning uniform.

This will make the process more comfortable and convenient. You don’t need the glamor of nightgowns or a tight shirt on if you have to crouch on floors and reach the trapped soil beneath your carpets.

Wear something comfortable and washable during the entire cleaning process. Furthermore, use gloves, appropriate cleaning shoes, and eye protection if needed.

5. Finish everything before moving to the next inch

If you really want to know the secret of how to speed clean, it's this- you must not work in one place more than once. Be sure to attend to everything that needs cleaning before you move to the next part of the house.

You really don’t need professional intervention just to assure that your house is well maintained. All you need are these 5 tips on how to speed clean and a half hour each day and you'll be in tip-top shape!

  1. I def need to learn how to do this. I feel like it takes me forever having a little one, but a speed clean is what I need during nap time!

  2. I am terrible with the not getting distracted while I clean LOL I will start something else before I even finish what I started. Great suggestions!!

  3. I always clean to an episode of “Gilmore Girls”. I pretty much know the whole show by heart so it’s not a huge distraction…and they talk so dang fast that it makes me hustle. 😉 Definitely will be taking your advice on using a cleaning uniform—my clothes are always a wreck by the end.

  4. Great post once again! I have ruined so many clothes wearing them while cleaning. Now I am going to set aside a certain cleaning outfit!

  5. That’s my problem. I don’t stay in one spot and finish cleaning before moving on. I’m the queen at multi-tasking. haha. It gets problematic sometimes. 🙂 I need to do better on maintaining a schedule.

  6. Great tips… Staying organized and staying motivated are musts for my cleaning. I typically listen to Pandora, Periscope, or a Podcast when I clean. They keep me motivated…. (I never noticed all begin with the letter P.) LOL

  7. omg this is so useful! My husband is my VA and we work together full time. We didn’t realise we were living in mess until someone was coming to visit. I’m a big fan of a ‘hidey up’ as I call it 😉 but remembering to clean is key. I’m going to pass this on to him and share on Pinterest xo

  8. Thanks for the awesome tips! Cleaning is something that I can never find the time to do. You are so right about keeping to a schedule, imagine if a professional cleaner only showed up when they have time and then only did half the work because they wanted to watch TV, lol.
