The fastest and easiest way to clean your house in just a few hours.

Housekeeping can be a daunting task. It seems like there are always new things to clean and not enough time in the day to do it all. But what if there was a way to clean your house fast, quickly, and easily, without sacrificing quality? Just follow these simple tips and you’ll be on your way to get your cleaning done in a blink of an eye!

So read on and save yourself some time!

Don’t clean your rooms one by one!

It is not advisable to clean room by room at a time if you want to save time and do the task efficiently. Instead, the correct way to do it is by picking one task (such as vacuuming, dusting, or mopping) and doing that activity in each room of the house. For example, you start the cleaning process by dusting so you do it in the kitchen, in the living room, in your room, and when you change the activity you start the round again.

Keep your cleaning products altogether

It’s easier for you to get the cleaning done if every cleaning supply you need is stored in one place, especially if it’s portable and you can carry it around the house. Use a caddy, bucket or tote and stop wasting time searching for cleaning products elsewhere. You will surely see the difference!

Put the mess in order

Before starting to clean, Fresh Home Cleaning recommends you -as a first step- to collect all the clutter of your house, room by room. That’ll make whipping and mopping easier! While doing that task, select the items you want to keep and the ones you don’t need anymore so you can donate them or throw them away. That way you will clean your house fast while you get rid of everything that’s making your home look untidy.

Goodbye Dust!

What about your bathroom?

This is probably one of the most tricky parts of the process of learning how to clean your house fast. No part of the bathroom should be left uncleaned. Pay special attention to tubs, sinks, and toilets. Spray cleaner everywhere, let it rest for a few minutes while you polish something else, and then wipe all the product. Bathrooms get dirty easily and no one wants to clean them by themselves.
