Cleaning can be time-consuming and tedious at times, but it doesn’t have to be! By implementing some simple cleaning steps in your routine, you can save time and effort while still ensuring your office space or business is sparkling clean. The following are some top cleaning suggestions to help you clean efficiently and easily.
Use The Correct Tools
Having the right tool for the job is a basic criterion for most projects. It applies to cleaning too! For example, a broom will never get your floors as clean as a vacuum and if you have hard floors then a cordless stick vacuum is faster to use. If your cleaning tools are broken or ineffective then it is surely going to make your job miserable. It is also a good idea to stock up on microfiber cloths and sponges and a vacuum that works well. It is well worth the expense to upgrade your cleaning supplies so that you don’t have to struggle with each task.
Have All Your Cleaning Tools Handy
Cleaning will always take longer if you have to go back and forth between areas or rooms to get the proper supplies. It is a good idea to keep a well-stocked caddy or tote that you can carry everywhere with you so that you can have all the tools and supplies that you need to clean in one portable place. You should fill it with an all-purpose cleaner, microfiber cloths, rubber gloves, sponges, glass cleaner, and trash bags. By doing this, you won’t waste time looking for supplies while you’re cleaning.
Implement Structured Cleaning
Another way to improve efficiency is to use organized and structured cleaning processes. Ensure that you’re making the most of every movement so you can save time. This includes:
– Use both hands to clean whenever possible. For example, use one hand to apply an all-purpose cleaner onto a cloth and use the other hand to wipe.
– Work clockwise around a room as working in a circular pattern around a room makes it less likely for you to miss something on your checklist.
– Clean from top to bottom as gravity affects cleaning. Make sure that you clean higher areas first so that excess dust and debris fall onto lower surfaces and working this way will ensure you won’t have to re-clean the area.
Clean Even If it ‘Looks’ Clean
Don’t wait to clean until your space looks dirty. Clean proactively to make cleaning easier because when you do it regularly, there is less dirt to cut through and you can clean your area faster. It takes less time to wipe a lightly-soiled counter than it does to move objects aside, sweep the crumbs, then spray and scrub it.
Have A Cleaning Checklist
Having a checklist or plan in place means that everyone involved knows which cleaning tasks need to be completed and when they need to be completed. Whether it is cleaning the home or office space, create a list of the various areas that need to be covered. It is also a good idea to prioritize cleaning certain areas such as starting with the kitchen, and bathrooms, and then moving to other rooms and common areas.
