Cleaning Hacks: Get Tidy in 20 Minutes a Day

Father and Son Cleaning Kitchen TogetherKeeping your Roanoke house clean seems to be a very laborious and unappealing activity. But cleaning can be an enjoyable task as well. Though some tasks do take time, most of the cleaning can be done in a short amount of time. These simple cleaning hacks can get your rental home clean and help you keep it that way. If you put a system in place, you could be spending just 20 minutes each day!

One of the best ways to cut cleaning time down is to divide up your cleaning tasks. Cleaning experts suggest focusing on just one room each day. Simply assign each room to a specific day of the week. On that designated day, you spend 20 minutes tidying only that room, removing clutter, dusting, and cleaning the floors. This way, each room gets to be cleaned once a week, and clutter won’t pile up.

Another alternative is where you assign a particular task to each day. The difference from the earlier approach is that this time, you will be cleaning all of the same surfaces in the home instead of just focusing on one room. You could dust everything one day, vacuum the next, and then sweep the floors on the third day. This method may let you get more cleaning done in a shorter time because you are focusing on one type of cleaning at a time.

Keeping your home tidy means having good tidying habits so you can keep clutter to a minimum. Clutter can build up quickly when things are not put away after use. Make it a habit to put things away in their proper places instead of setting them down anywhere to pick up later. If multiple people are living in the home, individual baskets can help make tidying up easier. Each person could then be responsible for putting the items in their bin away each day. Putting away one item takes much less time than cleaning up a big pile of mess. Keeping your home organized also makes it easy for you to find things when you need them.

Cleaning hacks like these let you carve out cleaning time anywhere in your day. You maybe like some who prefer to quickly clean up every morning before they leave for work. Or you may be one who would rather be tidying up after dinner. If ever you miss your assigned task for that day, focusing on a quick spot clean in the main areas of the house can help keep your place tidy. Even five minutes of cleaning can go a long way toward keeping your home in great shape.
