We all know that cleaning is a hassle. 

Thankfully, if you have the right supplies and a little planning, you can minimize the amount of time you would normally spend scrubbing tile and chipping away at mold and scale.

What can professional cleaners do to leave your house clean and tidy from top to bottom in a short amount of time? If you take advantage of these tips and tricks, you can have a clean home in no time at all.

Have A System

You can make your cleaning time in half with the help of speed-cleaning, which starts with a system. In order to do this, you should always clean the house in the same order each time: starting and ending each room at the same spot in order to avoid wasting time running back and forth from room to room.

I believe the key to getting the time down is to be consistent. That's the entire premise. Every time you clean the house you do the same thing, so it becomes a routine. In essence, this is a routine for cleaning, and that is an inherently better way to do it since the speed comes from the method instead of being hurried. It will really take you half the time to clean your house. It is not just a gimmick.

Clean From Left To Right, Top To Bottom

Don't wipe the coffee table, then clean the blinds, only to have the blind dust coat your freshly cleaned coffee table. When dusting a ceiling fan, for example, start from the top and work your way down to the floor to eliminate redundant work.

By cleaning left to right, you ensure that you cover the entire room rather than darting from one place to another. The dirt that falls on what you just cleaned falls when people see something and clean it, then look up and clean something else. In the event that you work top to bottom and left to right, you will only have to work once rather than cleaning areas that you have already cleaned.

This includes tidying the outside of your home. It’s easy to forget to keep on top of this area, however, this time of the year it can quickly get in a state. You want to be able to easily clean wicker furniture rather than spend ages scrubbing it. And you need to ensure your drains are working correctly by clearing your gutters. 

Make Sure You Have The Right Tools On Hand

You won't waste time walking back and forth to the cabinet under the sink if you have all the tools and cleaning supplies you need within reach. Wearing an apron or even a carpenter's tool belt and filling the pockets is recommended. 

This may be difficult if you have multiple large bottles of cleaning, but you don't need large bottles; simply pour the cleaners into small, reusable spray bottles that are easy to transport. To stay organized and save time, place your materials in a caddy or a bucket.

You wouldn't tolerate a carpenter climbing a ladder every time he needed a nail. Make sure he has everything he needs with him. This also applies to cleaners.

Be Proactive

If you want to keep your home clean, the best thing to do is to stop some problems before they start before they can become a problem. To prevent a buildup of grime and scum in the bath, you might want to use a shower cleaner instead. It is a spray that you can use and walk away from. 

It is a good idea to spray this on every time you take a shower in order to prevent having a dirty shower. All you need to do is spray, rinse, and walk away. No wiping or anything else at all is necessary.

How To Keep Dust At Bay Without Spraying

Using feather dusters to clean your blinds, pictures, nooks, and other areas is quite handy. A popular option is ostrich feather dusters, which can be found starting at about $10, as the feathers make it easy to remove dust and the large quills do not fall out of the handle. 

If you want to dust your home regularly, you should invest in a quality feather duster that fits into your back pocket. For heavy buildup, however, you will have to vacuum or use a cloth for a few days, then try the duster every two weeks or so after that.

Cut Through Grease In The Kitchen

Cabinets above or near the range, especially those that are covered in grease, tend to get greasy. To get rid of grease, you can either use a grease-cutting dishwashing detergent or a cleaner containing orange oil. Just as it cuts through grease on dishes, the detergent will do the same for cabinets.

Add a tablespoon of liquid detergent to a gallon of warm water. Wipe the solution on an inconspicuous area to ensure it will not damage the finish or discolor it. Rinse with warm water after wiping it off.

Mix baking soda with a little water and lightly scrub the affected area with a cloth in order to remove stubborn stains or buildups that won't come off with detergent.

Cleansing With Lemons

Patios, porches, driveways, and garage floors with rust stains are unsightly, but they are easy to remove without using acid. The key is to use lemon juice instead. This will be able to dissolve the rust due to the acid present in lemon juice. Let the lemon juice soak in for about 10 minutes after cutting it in half, then squeeze the juice onto the stain. Y

ou should scrub the concrete with a hard bristle brush if the stain has been on it for several weeks, months, or years. Rinse the concrete with clean water after scrubbing it with the hard bristle brush.

Beat Bathroom Mold

Since bathroom walls remain wet after a bath, mould thrives in bathrooms with poor ventilation. Using a trigger spray bottle, spray hydrogen peroxide on mould and mildew. After spraying it on, letting it sit for 3 to 5 minutes, will kill the fungus.

Make sure you use a fan when showering to prevent mould from returning. As soon as you're finished, squeegee the water from the walls and door of the shower.

Mineral Deposits Must Be Defeated

Don't use bristle brushes or pads to clean your plumbing fixtures if mineral deposits from hard water have stained them. This could damage the faucet. Replace them with vinegar instead. Clean them with a cloth soaked in vinegar. The process is easy.

Maintain Stainless Steel's Shine

Surfaces and sinks made of stainless steel are prone to fingerprints, smudges, and watermarks. An oil made from minerals can help remove them. Wipe the floor down once a week with mineral oil. Water will be repelled by this. Additionally, mineral oil prevents toothpaste and other items from sticking to the sink, which makes it easier to clean.

Make Use Of Magic Erasers

A four-pack of Magic Erasers costs about $4 and is popular among cleaners. When you're cleaning, keep them in your caddy to take stains off. Including wood, laminate, and tile, the Eraser is perfect for cleaning walls and floors.

Microwave Cleaning Made Easy

Microwave interiors probably look like war zones. Food that has been baked on for a couple of days or longer can be difficult to remove.

Using the microwave as a tool is the trick. Put a cup of water filled with a few drops of sugar in the microwave and heat it until it boils. Creating moisture as a result of this procedure will loosen up anything stuck to the top, sides, or bottom of the microwave. Next, wipe the surfaces with a damp cloth to keep the surfaces clean.

Vacuuming In Rows

You can vacuum more efficiently and effectively by doing the length of the room in a straight line, then moving to the front of the room and starting over. Vacuum regularly in high-traffic areas. Leave the room by vacuuming in long cornrows.  Putting the cord over your shoulder makes it easier to handle, and it's faster. And it looks great when you're finished.

Regularly Speed-Clean

Cleaning more often will allow you to reduce the time you spend on cleaning. You should give your house a once-over every two weeks after you've deep-cleaned it. You'll keep the place looking nice and save yourself the long, agonizing task of spring cleaning all at once. Maintaining the place instead of cleaning it up as needed will save you a lot of time and energy. 

It can be easier than you think to stay on top of your cleaning and housework. Of course, it can take time to get into a good routine with it. 

However, if you follow the tips in this guide and add more and more to the mix you will soon get into a great routine and have a clean and tidy home all the time.
