There is a method or an easy way for everything. Even for easy cleaning and organizing. It is not merely a job of those who have neat streaks but should be everybody’s responsibility!
There is a difference between a place where you just sleep and a place you consider a home.
According to Mrs. Clean (The House of Cleaning Specialists!), for every housekeeper that carries cleaning to the extreme there are 99 percent who are clueless when it comes to cleaning and organizing.
If you don’t have the time and energy to bring your home up to a level of cleanliness that would be easier for you to maintain, then don’t hesitate to call house cleaning service providers that can give your home a one-time cleaning or regular cleaning service.
Whenever you chose not have house cleaning services and do it on your own, then the first thing to do is fight procrastination. Procrastination is the biggest obstacle in beginning any labor intensive chore.
We’d rather have a good time reading, playing, or doing nothing just visualizing the cleanest house in the country.
Even if you’ve decided to hire a professional house cleaner, you may wish to spend a little time de-cluttering and organizing before they arrive. Don’t leave valuables around, make sure to put away jewelry and money in a safe place.
For organizing, this is the key tip: sort the items that you need and you no longer need. Throw away broken or worn out items. It is either you recycle them or you thrash them.
De-clutter. When you walk into a room, try to survey the room. Surveythe items that are out of place and contributing to a messy and disorganized look. Take a moment to straighten books on the shelves, pick up kids toys, straighten the magazines.
After de-cluttering and organizing the loose stuff, it is time to attend to actual cleaning. Make a list of the cleaning chores that you intend to do, whether you’ve planned a deep cleaning or lighter surface cleaning.
Give time to dust and polish furniture, use cleaners around door knobs and light switches, clean whatever needs it, and leave the floors (vacuuming or damp mopping) to the last.
Everything, even house cleaning and organizing, can be done efficiently. As long as procrastination is avoided and we start doing what needs to be done, today! Enough of being the thinker, be the doer!
