Cleaning Hacks: Get Tidy in 20 Minutes a Day

Father and Son Cleaning Kitchen TogetherKeeping your Burlington house clean can seem to be such a tiresome activity. But cleaning a house doesn’t have to be such an arduous activity. Some tasks may take time to do, but you can do most of the basic cleaning jobs in a very short period. With these simple cleaning hacks, you can clean up your rental home — and 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. Using this method, you assign a day of the week to each room in your house. On that assigned day, you spend 20 minutes removing clutter, dusting, and cleaning the floors of a particular room. Using this method, you can surface-clean each room in your house once a week. You also prevent clutter build-up.

Another method is to assign a particular task to each day. You would now be cleaning all of the same surfaces in the home if you use this method, instead of cleaning everything in a specific room. For example, you can dust the whole house one day, vacuum the next, then sweep and mop the floors the day after. Doing one type of cleaning at a time may make it easier for you to get more cleaning done in just a short 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 an effort to always put things away after using rather than leaving them lying around to pick 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. It’s easier to put one item away than to clean up a big pile of misplaced items. Your home will also look more organized and you will be able 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. Tidying up can be done before you leave for work in the morning of even for a few minutes 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.
