Your House Cleaning Organisation to help you create a bright and sparkling home!
1. Where do I begin?
Well how about house cleaning organisation for starters? Ok! I know you do not want to perform this task, but perform it you must. So first of all you must plan and organise. So you have a look around the house. 'Where do I begin?' you ask.
There is no fixed rule contrary to what some people say. E.g. you must do the bedroom first, then the living room etc. It all depends on your situation at the moment and your lifestyle.
Let's say you have guests coming for the weekend and it's Friday.
Then you can concentrate on the living room and the kitchen, then do the other rooms on another day. Or you are having a dinner party. Concentrate on the kitchen first, then the living room etc. etc. It all depends.
Anyway whatever the situation you're in you have to make a plan of what you are going to do. This is where house cleaning organisation comes in.
2. Make a Checklist.
Schedule your cleaning.
Depending on your situation at the moment you schedule which rooms and areas of the house to clean. Then if you will be cleaning on a regular basis make a schedule and stick to it.
Once this is done then check room by room and area by area to determine which parts of it needs attention.
Which parts do you have to concentrate on? What cleaning products do you need to obtain? Select the tools and utensils needed for the parts of the house that needs cleaning.
A good idea is to prepare a Task Sheet on which you can tick the areas that need to be cleaned in that particular cleaning session.
Keep all cleaning products in one place and carry it around with you while you are cleaning. Saves you time running around to get the right tools and products.
Use the right product.
In that particular room or house make sure you obtain and use the correct product. This should have been identified at stage 2.
Use good quality, heavy duty products that do a good job.
Get rid of clutter.
If you have junk get rid of it. I myself like to keep things that I like for sentimental reasons. However if this is kept around the house then it only makes the cleaning harder having to clean around unnecessary items.
If you must keep such 'junk', then put them in some out of the way part of the house like your loft or outside of the house like a shed or best of all a large rented space like a garage.
If you are a family then identify certain parts of the house where your kids can (or even husband if you can persuade him) clean on a regular basis. This only has to be a small chore but it will lighten the load.
However if you do not want to do any of the above, the best help is hired help, more of which later. This will cost you but think about the time saved which you can use to spend quality time with loved ones or even to earn more money than you would spend to get someone else to do it.
3. Other planning tips.
Clean from top to bottom generally.
Clean from back to front. Right to left.
When you enter a room, divide it into 3 levels: Eye level, ceiling level and floor level. Start at the left hand corner (from top to bottom) and work towards the door. Then do the same for the right hand corner, working towards the door.
Focus on one area at a time.
You can do a little each day.
Try to put things where they belong right away.
This saves you handling it twice, thus having to clean it again.
More to follow.
Doing all the above will help you realise that house cleaning organisation is worth it.
