Cleaning efficiently starts by decluttering before cleaning. When things are neat, lesser time is spent on organising and is used more on cleaning. I would recommend decluttering a day before you start spring cleaning your home! As the saying goes, a cluttered room is a cluttered mind. Put away unnecessary things that you do not use anymore. You may read on the effective Marie Kondo decluttering method here.
Another method to clean like a pro is vacuuming your furniture. Although commonly seen, it is a method that is often neglected by many. Dust and dirt can easily be collected underneath your furniture where it will potentially irritate allergy or eczema. Many forgo this step as people cannot see the dust particles floating around, but that does not mean it is not there. It is easy to remember to vacuum your carpets and floor. However, don't neglect your furniture (sofa, table, etc.)! It is also recommended to clean them once every week. You never know when pet hair, dust, germs can be built on the surfaces, so using different attachments can be helpful!
Before cleaning your entire house, always start by preparing your cleaning supplies. By doing so, a lot of time is saved, and you do not need to pause your cleaning momentum to find a piece of cloth. A checklist of products is also an alternative you might approach in cases where you cannot remember. Also, when hiring a part-time cleaner, you can pass the checklist to her, and she will get the job done in no time!
Last but not least, the key to having a clean house is setting a cleaning schedule or routine. The cleaning schedule ensures that a premise is maintained to a certain level of cleanliness at all times and that no item is forgotten. Consistency is crucial in maintaining a hygienic and clean house! General checklists can be found online for basic household chores like sweeping and mopping the floor, and you can check them out!
