Living in a dirty house is not enjoyable, but sometimes the thought of having to clean it is just too much. What to do? These house cleaning tips were developed to make your house cleaning quicker and more efficient.

Create a Schedule – Most of us have busy lives; run the kids around town, full time jobs, cooking meals, etc. We do not have the time to commit 5 or 6 hours a day to cleaning (nor do we want to) so we need to do it when we have time. You probably already manage your hectic life with some sort of planning or organization calendar, and to manage your cleaning at it to your schedule as well.

Break up the cleaning tasks and schedule one or two of them for different days of the week. For example, clean the bathrooms on Saturday, the kitchen on Monday, and so on. Get other family members involved as well, assign them tasks and add their individual cleaning assignments to the cleaning schedule as well. By posting the schedule in a visible place for all to see, everyone will know what has to be cleaned and on what day.

Inventory Supplies – These house cleaning tips were designed to ensure that our cleaning activities are more efficient. There is nothing worse than running out of a particular cleaning supply in the middle of the job and having to stop what we are doing, jump in the car, and spend the next 30 minutes in the cleaning supply store. To avoid this situation develop your own cleaning supply inventory list.

To develop your supply list, start by identifying the cleaning tasks at hand and determine what tool or supply this task requires. Write it down on your list. For example, if you have a tiled or wooden floor you may need a floor polish, write this on your list. After you have completed your list, check your current cleaning supplies to ensure you have everything on hand and purchase those items you need. Finally, as you use a product make a note on your list so that you can restock your cleaning supplies.

Motivation – Sure cleaning is not everyone’s favorite activity, but we don’t need to make ourselves miserable as we clean. Start by wearing comfortable clothing, this will begin to put you in a positive mind frame. Next, put on some of your favorite music…choosing something that will get your feet moving and your heart pumping, choose something fun! Lastly, plan to give yourself a reward after you finish the cleaning task. The reward can be big or small, it is your choice…but make it enticing enough to motivate you to accomplish the cleaning job.

Cleaning Plan – A lot of inefficiency starts when there is not a plan of attack. Instead we bounce from room to room or from task to task without clear purpose and direction. In order to stay focused, knock out the job at hand and get on with our lives, we need a cleaning plan.

The plan does not need to be elaborate. Write it down if you can, committing action to paper always helps. Write down what you want to accomplish, how you are going to accomplish it, and how long it will take. That is all there is to it, you have developed your cleaning plan. Don’t skip this step! While it might seem “too easy”, it is actually the glue that holds the rest of these house cleaning tips together.

These house cleaning tips do not take any additional time from your day. In fact, if you implement them they will actually save you a tremendous amount of time in the long run. A little planning and organization up front will save you time and make your cleaning chores easier and more efficient.
