Top Tips in Cleaning Your House Like a Pro

Jul 11th 2015 at 11:28 AM

Most homeowners do household chores for later. Like everyone else, the mere thought of totting a caddy for cleaning supplies can prove to be exhausting. Don’t you wish you can just wave a magic wand to eliminate the dust, dirt and grime in your homes? But when an important family event coming up or when an illness strikes, keeping one’s home spic and span must be done. From general tidying up, vacuuming, bathroom cleaning, garage cleaning, and even car washing, the chores ahead can be overwhelming. However, something must be done to alleviate the situation. To jumpstart your Maid-in-Manhattan-meets-Tazmian-Devil chores, here are some important tips to make the process a little less arduous:

Living Area and Dining Room

The problem with cleaning chores is that you need to start somewhere. Friends and family come and go by your living or dining room making it the best place to kickstart the job at hand. Your cleaning checklist should include removing cobwebs, cleaning windows and mirrors, dusting the furniture, polishing furnishings, washing of ceiling and stand fans, and vacuuming of the upholstered carpet. Tuck yourself with a convenient cleaning supplies caddy when moping hard floors. To give your furniture a brand-new feel, remove and wash furniture covers. Curtains and cushions have to be laundered. Those blinds have to be washed, too. If you got the guts and the know-how, do steam-clean carpets on your own to save up on cost.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Most bedrooms nowadays have built-in bathrooms making this chore fall into the 2-n-1 category. As a rule, the bedroom should come first but, to make cleaning of tiles, toilets, and tubs easier, bring your cleaning supplies caddy to these areas and whisk a good amount of cleansers to allow deep penetrating action against grime and dirt. Once applied, begin dusting and polishing of bedroom surfaces like bed stands, bureaus, dressers, side tables, lamps, nightstands, divans and other room furniture. Vacuum clean hardwood floors or carpets, ceiling fans and windows or blinds. Remove bed linen for washing and replace it with crisp new ones.

Cleaning of bathroom will commence thereafter. By now, those chemicals have already loosened hard-to-remove dirt and grime often found on tiles, toilet bowl, sink, grout and bath tub. Clean windows and mirrors. Polish vanities and faucets. Remove shower curtains for washing.  Brush tiles, inside of toilet bowl, and bath tub. Make sure to empty the trash as you wrap up.


Some household usually begins in the kitchen while others do it for last. Whichever you prefer, your checklist should include cleaning of sinks and faucets, appliances, countertops, cupboards, and cabinets. Make sure to defrost your fridge and thoroughly clean from the inside to the outside all appliances. Deconstruct your oven and stove top. If you have curtains, put them on the laundry, too.

For easy-breezy cleaning, find a good source of cleaning caddies that will hold all your cleaning necessities in place. When deep cleaning a home, you’ll be making good use of both hands. Choose one that can be tucked to yourself for easy access.
