Cleaning the house can be a daunting task, especially if you have kids, but it needs to be done.  Figuring out the best way to tackle this chore without getting too stressed out is not always easy, but there are a few methods to clean up your home efficiently and quickly.

Firstly, you should consider your lifestyle. You may be a busy professional or a parent with a growing family, yet no matter your circumstances, if you want to keep your sanity, it’s important to know how to manage your time. While you can hire an outside contractor for general cleaning, it’s more likely that you’ll be able to do it yourself.

Having a list of tasks to complete will help you stick to a routine. For instance, if you plan to do a thorough clean, you’ll want to make sure that you take advantage of the weekend to get some of the more mundane jobs done.

You should also create a schedule that suits your lifestyle, which can be anything from a set daily timeslot to a standardised week-long time frame. If you have kids, and they are old enough, you’ll need to give them the chance to enlist in the cleaning process.

It’s not a secret that dust and grime can get out of hand, but with this the solution is simple – little and often.  A good rule of thumb is to do at least one big clean per week as doing this will allow you to tackle the more difficult areas in a timely fashion. But in terms of getting rid of cobwebs, stains, smudges, dust and dirt, just tackle them when you see them.

If you have a young family, you might not want to leave the kid’s bedroom uncleaned. Taking care of this small but important detail will ensure that your home is a place that your kids will be happy to return to. Taking a couple of extra minutes to tidy up a room or two will do wonders for your sanity and your home’s value.

The most effective cleaning solutions involve the proper use of cleaning products, but for a more cost-effective option, you can look toward items such as white vinegar and baking soda.  These can be used throughout the house from kitchen to bathroom, and even for treating stains on carpets.

A tidy home makes you feel more comfortable and happy, and if you really don’t have the time or the inclination to do it yourself, there are a range of professional cleaning companies out there.

If for example you’re looking for carpet cleaning in Brighton you can expect to pay roughly £130 – £180 for an average two bedroom house.  With this you will have professionally trained technicians using specialist machines and chemicals to sanitise and clean your carpets.  Not only will this save you time, but the specialised training and equipment will inevitably lead to better results than if you were to do it yourself.

Another example of when it’s best to get the professionals in would be with oven cleaning.  Starting from only £50, a company such as Grease Lightning Oven Cleaning in Guildford have specialised ‘dip tanks’ in their vans in which the components of your oven can be soaked in chemicals to produce a sparkling finish.

Hopefully these tips will help you get your house back into order in no time. Remember that you’re only human, so be prepared to make mistakes.
