How to Clean Your House Like a Pro in Just 4 Hours

Cleaning tips from a professional cleaner

In about four hours per week, you can clean any house. I learned this when I owned my own residential house cleaning in north shore. Cleaning other people’s homes is much easier than cleaning yours. This is because you aren’t involved in the mess. You don’t have to worry about anyone, and everything is private.

If you aren’t distracted, you can clean your house as efficiently as a professional. It’s cheaper to hire a professional house cleaner than it is to clean your own home.

My 7-Step Method

  1. Establish a cleaning schedule
  2. Get started cleaning your bathrooms
  3. Change your bedding
  4. Clean ceilings and walls
  5. Finalize cleaning the bathrooms
  6. Dust
  7. Mop and vacuum

How to Prioritize Cleaning Needs

Doing chores around the house like laundry and intensive kitchen cleaning should be left to another time. They can distract from your main mission. I assume the dishes are washed daily, and the counters are swept.

You can make the washing machine or dishwasher run efficiently if you’re efficient and can focus on other tasks. These chores can be tackled with some strategies. When dusting, cleaning and clearing cobwebs on floors, I recommend that you include the kitchen.

Cleaning Supplies You Will Want

You will find it easier to have everything you need at your fingertips. You can easily carry your supplies from one room to the next with a storage container or a bucket equipped with handles.

You should include the following items in your cleaning bag:

  • Sponge with a scrubby side
  • Cotton rags: I like cotton diapers and old terrycloth washcloths. You can also wear old t-shirts as rags. You can also use old towels and clothing.
  • Microfiber cloths
  • Use paper towels
  • Bathroom cleaner
  • Glass cleaner
  • Furniture polish
  • Rubber gloves
  • Polish and floor cleaner

A little advice about rags and cloths

  • The microfiber cloth is very popular and great for certain jobs. These cloths are great for final polishing, dry dusting and cleaning woodwork. They are not very absorbent. They can be used either slightly damp or dry most of the time. These cloths are not suitable for drying dishes but are great for rubbing off any water spots. Spray cleaner with a microfiber cloth will not dry the surface. In this case, you will be better off using a paper towel, a cotton cloth, or a rag.
  • Use paper towels to clean up greasy or very dirty messes. You can first clean up the stove top with a paper towel. Next, use a sponge or rag to clean the rest of the area.

Other Tools

  • Duster made from long-handled materials
  • Vacuum cleaner
  • Broom
  • Dust mop
  • Wet mop

Purchase a Decent Vacuum cleaner

Vacuum cleaners have been a problem for me for years. I bought a cheap vacuum cleaner after another. It felt like I was spending more time cleaning them than vacuuming.

I finally purchased a Kenmore vacuum cleaner. It has been with me for ten years and has solved all my problems. It still requires maintenance. It will hold suction if you empty the bags and clean the filters. I found a replacement on eBay after the hose cracked several years ago.

I’d warn you against bagless vacuums. I have never had success with them, and emptying the dirt cup can be messy. Although uprights are attractive and simple, it can be difficult to clear a clog.
