6 Tips to Make Your House Look Like it Was Cleaned By a Professional
We all wish that we had the money to have our houses cleaned professionally. It would save us tons of time and stress, but it’s not a reality for most of us. Instead, we have to clean our houses ourselves. Chances are, you are one of the people that have to clean their own house, but it doesn’t have to look like you cleaned it yourself. Use these professional house cleaning tips to get your home looking spick and span!
Clear All Your Surfaces
The first professional house cleaning tip I’ve got for is to clear your surfaces – tables, counter tops, nightstands, even your bookshelf shelves. This is the first thing that a professional house cleaner would do because they don’t want to deal with your knick knacks. Anything that doesn’t belong on that surface needs to go back to where it belongs before you start cleaning. This will allow you to de-clutter before you start cleaning, and making both parts easier in the process. If you wanted to just clear off your services and dust them with a microfiber cloth before you put anything back, that will make your life easier, too.
Clean in the right order!
When you’re cleaning, the first step you should take is to dust. Knock all of your dust bunnies onto the floor before you do anything else so that you can vacuum them all up at the end.
Vacuuming should always be your last step because it can pick up everything that you’ve knocked off of your other surfaces.
Spray and walk away
Save yourself a little bit of elbow grease by spraying your products on the surfaces that you need to clean and letting them soak in before you start scrubbing. This will make your life a lot easier.
Vacuum your Furniture & Drawers
Something that you might not think of when you are cleaning is bottoms of your drawers and the state of your couch cushions. Professional house cleaners will vacuum both of these to make sure there are no stray crumbs where your guests need to sit.
Clean with the grain of your floor
When it comes to your floors, go with the grain. On hardwood floors when you’re mopping, you want to keep the mop head going in the same direction as the wood grain to prevent streaks. You can use a cloth afterwards to mop up any remaining liquid and avoid floor damage from the pooling. With your carpets, it is going to look best if you make sure that all of the strands of your carpet are going the same direction. You can do this with the vacuum itself or with your foot. Either way, it going to make your house look spiffy.
Sit on the toilet
The toilet is the one place that your guests are pretty much guaranteed to visit. So, put yourself in their place. Sit on the toilet and see if there is anything you can see that needs to be cleaned after you’ve cleaned the bathroom. This will make sure that you won’t miss any spots that desperately need cleaning.
