You are super busy, don’t have much time, your house is a mess, and you have unexpected guests. Or you simply can’t look at all that chaos around you and want to get rid of it as soon as possible. It often happens because we keep ignoring it as it simply seems too much work to clean your house. Instead, we often choose to turn a blind eye until it really becomes an emergency.
If you are too busy and prefer not to clean your house yourself, there is always the option to outsource through house cleaning services like Deluxe Maid. But if you want to handle things yourself and are short on time, here are some useful tips on how to clean your house fast.
Saved by the Basket
Small things out of their usual places can create a clutter appearance. Papers, books, gadgets, accessories, and what not. Organize them using one or more baskets. The number of baskets you need will depend on the number of rooms you have and the amount of clutter to clear. Simply put all the items in baskets which should create an immediate de-cluttering effect and make your home look tidier.
Every now and then when you catch a moment, return those things that you’ve used to their designated places. If it’s something you don’t need anymore, then throw them away. It’s simple, it requires minimal time and effort, and it will do wonders for the overall tidiness of your home.
Wipe the Surfaces
Now that your house is de-cluttered, you have an open road to actually clean those surfaces. Maybe those piled items helped to prevent the dust from accumulating in certain places, but for a truly clean home, it’s best to clean the entire surface.
It’s always better to wipe the surfaces once they are completely empty. It doesn’t take more than 5 to 10 minutes and perhaps even less. It will create a sparkling clean effect, preventing the accumulation of dust, hair, food crumbs and the likes.
Empty the Trash Cans
This really doesn’t require a lot of time or effort to empty the trash cans. Doing so can really help make your house appear tidier. Overfull trash cans make the place look even messier and dingier, plus no one wants to see dirty trash. So make sure you empty all the garbage bins, especially from high usage places such as the bathroom. Trash cans without lids expose unsightly trash, so consider purchasing garbage bins with covers.
Once they’re all emptied, you’ll have a cleaner, less cluttered house. Make sure that you pick up any random trash, such as unnecessary receipts, empty bottles, and other things you may have just put down and forgotten about. When combined with all the previous steps, you’ll get an overall result of a clean and organized place.
Make Your Bed
Making your bed is something you should do regularly. It’s tempting to leave your bed unmade, knowing you’re just going to get back into the same bed in the evening. But this is about implementing a good habit which really takes a few minutes and minimal effort, and the result is an overall organized and clean look in your house.
Of course, guests probably won’t peep into your bedroom, but making your bed may create a positive psychological effect and perhaps help set the mood for your day. If you start by making your bed, chances are you’ll be more inclined to clean the rest of the house as well.
Try using these tips on how to clean your house fast for a more organized and tidy home.
