The Lazy Man’s Guide on How to Clean Your House Fast!

With a busy schedule and plenty of responsibilities, it can be difficult to make cleaning a priority when so many other things are waiting calling for your attention. Although it’s important to clean the home every week or two, there are ways to do it quickly and efficiently to ensure a tidy and spotless home that doesn’t take the whole day.

Group Different Tasks
Instead of cleaning one room at a time and having to get out different cleaning solutions and tools a number of times, do each task all at once. When vacuuming or dusting, do the whole house at once for a quicker process. Make a checklist to track your progress and even delegate tasks to different family members for a group effort that takes less time.

Clean During the Week
Instead of spending time picking up clothes on the floor before vacuuming or organizing paperwork in an office before dusting, do this during the week for a tidier home that is well-kept each day (also see 4 Tips To Clean And Reduce Household Dust). Make it a habit to wipe down the kitchen and bathroom counters at the end of each day, as well as put each belonging in its place to make the cleaning process a breeze when it needs to be done once a week.

Leave the Deep Cleaning For a Different Day
It may be tempting to start a new project that requires deep cleaning while cleaning the house each week, but leave that for another day when you can schedule and plan for it. Stick to the basics when cleaning so you can get on with your day with minimal distractions.

 

 

 

 

Play Music
Play upbeat music when cleaning, which will work to keep you entertained and even make cleaning the home a little fun. Listening to music that has a fast pace will naturally allow you to have more energy and clean faster, cutting the process by one-third of the time. Keep the television off, which can be a distraction and make it difficult to focus on the tasks at hand.

 

 

Use a Robotic Floor Cleaner
By using an iRobot Scooba 390 on the floors in the home, this robotic vacuum cleaner will work to pick up the dirt and grime on the floors as the battery-operated machine preps, washes, scrubs, and squeegees the floor. It will do all of the dirty work without supervision and works on floors that haven’t been swept, killing 98 percent of bacteria and saving time. iRobot Scooba 390 uses clean water, washing up to 425 square feet of floors without replacement of the water.

 

 

Use All-Purpose Cleaner on the Whole House
Instead of switching between different type of bathroom cleaners, kitchen solutions, and countertop cleaners, use an all-purpose solution that will work on different surfaces for a quicker cleaning process with less stress and more simplicity. Find a solution that is safe to use on appliances, sinks, and even mirrors to make cleaning less complicated.
