Ensuring that your cleaning is done in the most efficient way possible

When it comes to cleaning the house, everyone is different. There will be things that you do, and always have done, that others will not even think about, and vice versa. What is a common thing is that no one really enjoys cleaning, and would like it to be less of a part of their lives, no matter what circumstances they are in. The fact of the matter however, is that the cleaning is not a difficult thing to do. If you think about it, none of the jobs really require a huge amount of effort, nor brain power, it’s not exactly rocket science, nor is it manual labor, so why are people so averse to it? The main reason is that it takes up a lot of your time, and is extremely boring. One easy way to battle this is to ensure that your cleaning process is as efficient as possible, as this will ensure that you spend less and less time cleaning, which means that you have more time to do exactly what you want!

efficient cleaningFor a start, you need to give some thought to the equipment that you use. If you are using cleaning tools that are not performing to their highest standard, or are not suited to their jobs, or your house, then you are not going to be cleaning efficiently as you could be. The fact is, if you have a large house, then you won’t want a silly little vacuum cleaner that needs emptying every time you use it. Similarly, if you have a smaller house with a lot of stairs, you don’t want a bulky big vacuum cleaner that will take ages to move around, and is difficult to maneuver between bits of furniture. You need to look over the things that you use to clean, to ensure that they will be serving you well in terms of getting the job done quickly and efficiently.

If you had previously thought that getting the cleaning done in one sitting meant that you got the job out of the way, then you may be interested to try thinking about the process in a different way.  If you were to divide up the cleaning into individual tasks, and to then get them done in a way that spread them across the week, other than in one chunk, then you may well realize that you can get things done a lot more easily without them getting in the way of everything. Efficiency comes with a clear mind and a desire to get things done quickly and effectively. If you spend a whole Saturday cleaning, then by about one hour in you will be sick of it, and want to give up, which will naturally lead to distraction, procrastination, and giving up in some cases! This is the opposite of efficient, so why not try fitting things in where you can, and doing them one at a time across the week, rather than all at once when you should be doing what you want instead?

Hopefully this quick set of ideas will inspire you to reevaluate the cleaning processes that you use, and give you some thoughts on how you could make your cleaning process make more sense for your individual situation. Whether it means a new dustpan and brush, or a whole new outlook on domestic life, it doesn’t matter, just put that fear of cleaning to bed!
