Let’s face it, life is busy and cleaning is just one more thing that seems to quickly swallow up your free time. Fortunately, it is also one of the easiest routines to adjust in order to save time and become more efficient. That’s why our team at Christina’s Complete Clean has used our experience to put together a list of ways you can save time and still enjoy a clean home.

Time Saving Tips

Clean with Efficiency

One of the easiest ways to save time while cleaning is to do a little decluttering every day. Spending just 10 to 15 minutes a day to tidy up can really save you a lot of time and grief on big cleaning days. Also, clean as you go. While cooking, be sure to wipe surfaces as you go and place prep utensils and bowls in the sink. Clean spills on your stovetop as they happen so you can prevent crusted-on stains. Similarly, be sure to wipe away any soap scum or toothpaste on your bathroom sink daily.

Vacuum with Efficiency

One of the easiest ways to save time when vacuuming is having the room ready. Pick up loose items on the floor and pull furniture away from the walls, to run the vacuum with less starts and stops. Also, consider investing in a couple of different vacuums. Having a small hand vacuum can be extremely helpful when vacuuming upholstery and carpeted stairs. Their handheld, maneuverable nature can save you time and help you avoid the hassle of using a larger vacuum. Finally, always start vacuuming with a clean bag. This helps create more suction and prevents you from having to stop and dump out the dirt in the middle of vacuuming.

Dust with Efficiency

Dust before you vacuum. As you dust, bits of dirt and dust will naturally fall to the floor. Move top down. Similarly, when dusting wall units or shelves, start at the top. Begin by first lifting and dusting each object, and then dust the entire shelf. Be sure to use microfiber for the best results.
