Cleaning Hacks: Get Tidy in 20 Minutes a Day

Father and Son Cleaning Kitchen TogetherKeeping your Norwalk house clean can seem to be such a tiresome activity. However, cleaning doesn’t have to take a huge chunk of your time. Surprisingly, even if some tasks take time, you can do most everyday cleaning in a short period. The following simple cleaning hacks will help you keep your rental home clean and orderly. If you put a system in place, you could be spending just 20 minutes each day!

Dividing up your cleaning tasks lets you cut down cleaning time to 20 minutes. Cleaning experts suggest focusing on just one room each day. Using this approach, you simply designate a day of the week to clean a particular room. Then you spend 20 minutes in that room– removing clutter, dusting, and cleaning the floors. With this, you can clean each room once a week and manage the clutter in your house.

You can also assign a particular task to each day instead. This approach is different, such that you are cleaning all of the same surfaces in the home instead of everything in one specific room. You might want to focus on dusting one day, vacuuming the next, and sweeping on the third day. This approach may make it easier to get more cleaning done in a shorter time.

It is important to develop good tidying habits so that you can keep clutter to a minimum. Clutter can build up quickly when things are not put away after use. Return things to their proper places before doing another task. This is a lot easier than setting things down for picking up later. If other people are living in the home, you may want to create bins or baskets for each one. Each person could then be responsible for putting the items in their bin away each day. One item takes much less time to put away than a big pile of misplaced things. When your home is organized, it will also be a lot easier to find things you need when you need them.

One of the benefits of cleaning hacks like these is that you can set aside time to clean anywhere in your day. Some people like to clean up before they leave in the morning, while others prefer tidying up after dinner. In the event you miss your assigned task for the day, a quick spot clean of the main areas can keep your place looking tidy. Even five minutes of cleaning can go a long way toward keeping your home in great shape.
