When cleaning house, it's important to be organized - to have a plan that helps you save time and energy. Generally, after having washed, dusted, made beds, and cleaned the windows, and the more there are the more time it takes, we finish by cleaning the floor.
Not removing dust and dirt before washing is one of the most common mistakes. First of all, before steam cleaning, it's important to vacuum up the dirt deposited when you dusted: eliminating dirt and dust on the floor by vacuuming might seem like a simple task, but actually, we can offer you some tips to optimize the results and you will discover how to clean house quickly.
Start by eliminating obstacles from the room, placing chairs on tables, and removing rugs and objects from the floor. Once ready, here are the steps to follow for easy and thorough cleaning:
#1 SLOW-MOTION VACUUMING
By vacuuming slowly, especially on carpets, you collect more dust. Focus especially on corners and remember to get under furniture, moving lighter pieces. If your furniture is heavy, don’t worry. There are vacuum cleaners with folding handle useful for cleaning everywhere easily and without causing backaches.
This cleaning method is much less tiring!
#2 DON'T WASTE TIME
Attach a bag to the hook on your vacuum cleaner to collect anything too large to be vacuumed up. In this way you won't have to continuously stop what you are doing.
#3 CLEAN SMALL OBJECTS
Take an old pair of tights and slip them over the nozzle of your vacuum cleaner, fastening them with an elastic band. This is a practical way to avoid vacuuming up small objects that you merely want to dust, or to protect delicate items like fabric flowers.
#4 START FROM THE CORNERS
This might seem obvious, but it is the perfect way to ensure you don't keep passing over the same areas. Start from the farthest corner from the door and always choose the closest outlet to the exit. You won't have to go back over areas you have already cleaned. Even the darkest corners are not a problem. Choose a vacuum cleaner with a led light on the brush which allows you to see hidden dirt.
Now, it’s time to sanitize your surfaces with a steam cleaner.
