While it’s important to clean daily to ensure clutter doesn’t build up, making these mistakes could cost you time and money. By following our cleaning dos and don’ts, you can make home cleaning a fast and efficient process!
Do take on smaller tasks and ensure everything is finished before you move on. Schedule out enough time (plus a little more) in your day to clean certain areas of the house. Stay focused on one area before moving onto another. Leaving a cleaning job half finished could create more clutter than you started with.
Do clean from top to bottom. By cleaning from the top of your space to the bottom, you will knock down dirt and dust as you go. This way, you won’t have to clean the same area twice!
Do avoid using too much furniture polish. While it can give your furniture that telltale gleam, too much furniture polish will make your surfaces sticky and attract dirt and dust. Use furniture polish sparingly and never apply directly to the surface.
Do hire help from Pyngle! We understand that family is a priority in a busy lifestyle. A helping hand from Pyngle can take care of the household chores so you can spend more time on what truly matters.
Don’t dust furniture with a dry rag. This will simply move dirt around and could possibly scratch surfaces. Instead, spray a cloth with a cleaning formula or use a microfibre cloth to protect your furniture and ensure a clean finish.
Don’t restrict a full home cleaning just to spring. A lot of junk will clutter the house in a year’s time. By scheduling routine deep cleanings, you can keep your home clean and organized all year round. You also won’t feel overwhelmed whenever you go through a full home cleaning. If you feel that the clutter is already getting out of hand, hire a professional from Pyngle to help you out!
Don’t clean windows on hot sunny days. The heat will dry your windows too quickly and risk leaving water spots and streaks. The window wash may also not have the ability to break up all the grime before it was evaporated, leaving your windows just as dirty as they were. Opt to clean your windows on cooler, cloudy days instead.
Don’t forget to clean what you clean with! Mopping your floors with a dirty mop will not make your floors any cleaner. Make sure to clean your mops, buckets, and rags after every use.
