Time Tidbits: 5 Tips to Save You Time on Household Cleaning


As a parent, you know first-hand just how hectic life can be. When you have work, running after the kids, and countless other errands to think about, cleaning can end up taking a back seat. After all, it's hard to keep a house tidy - particularly when children have such a knack for making a variety of messes. 
The good news? If you want to spend more time bonding with your family, and less time with the vacuum cleaner, there are a few things you can do to speed up your cleaning strategies. 
One of the best strategies is hiring a house cleaning company to do it for you & completely offloading your work. Not convinced you should hire a house cleaning company? Check out our article on why you should hire a cleaning service, and it may just convince you to switch to the “dark side”.
Let's look at 5 top ways you can schedule time-saving solutions into your weekly routine, so you don't have to compromise on a happy, and tidy home. 
  • Start with Something Small Every Day
Often, it's the big cleaning days that really take the most time out of your schedule. When tidying is put on hold, small jobs can quickly build into huge tasks, which ensure you spend your entire weekend scrubbing floors and dealing with trash, rather than enjoying your time with your kids. 
A great way to fix this issue is to spend just a few minutes a day tidying before you go to bed. Ten or fifteen minutes wiping down messy surfaces and putting toys away can save you from spending hours on a deep-cleaning session later. 
If you do have a big cleaning day that is bound to happen since you let things get out of control, hire a cleaning company like Cleaning Tribe to do an initial deep clean of your home. After that you can opt in to either maintain it yourself or get on a recurring service with your local cleaning company provider. 
  • Clean as You Go 
Following up from the tip above, cleaning as you go is a great way to save yourself some much-needed time around the house - particularly in the kitchen and bathroom. When you're prepping meals for the family, transfer used bowls and utensils to the sink, so you don't have to worry about scrubbing the surfaces after dinner. In the bathroom, wipe away any soap scum or toothpaste as you go, so that stains don't have a chance to build up. 
When you're in a rush, it's easy to tell yourself you'll simply leave something until later, but cleaning as you go can save you a lot of time in the long-run. 
  • Work on One Room a Week 
Aside from the regular daily cleaning you'll be doing to save yourself some extra time, pick one room a week and give that space your extra attention. During the week, whenever you have a spare hour, focus on some deep-cleaning in that room. For instance, you could wash the drapes, or spend some time scrubbing the floors if they haven't had a good clean for a while. Rotate your rooms as you go, and the whole-house deep clean won't take you nearly as long as usual. 
  • Go from Top to Bottom 
When you are cleaning your house, remember how important gravity can be when it comes to controlling dust and dirt. To make sure that you don't have to go back and clean the floors all over again, or start dusting from scratch, work from the top down in each room, starting with the cobwebs that accumulate in the corners of walls. Work your way down through the drapes or blinds, then work on the furniture. 
By the time you've gotten to your floors, there's a good chance that they need a good sweep or vacuum, and you'll save yourself re-doing any jobs. 
  • Build Your Own Cleaning Kit
Finally, while you might not be able to handle all of the deep-cleaning tasks required within your home without a little extra help, you can make life simpler by ensuring you have the tools you need when it's time to tidy. We can all waste time searching for the right supplies for the job, so make sure you take an hour or so to assemble a fully-stocked cleaning kit, and you'll reduce the time you waste later. 
Stock all the cleaning items you most like to use under your sink, or somewhere out of the reach of your youngsters, and you'll always know where to turn when it's time to get the rubber gloves out.

  1. House cleaning is very important for all and mostly time of kids spend at house so it is mandatory to remove the dirt particles from every corner of the house and mostly flies originate in the dirt places so it is better to clean each and every part of the house.
