8 Efficient House Cleaning Tips

Updated: Apr 18, 2023

Every home — big, small, apartment or landed property — gets dirty. While there isn't just one way to clean your living space, there are smarter ways to get the job done. Agape Cleaning has help to gather 8 efficient tips to help in your house cleaning.

Tip #1 - Gather all your cleaning tools in bucket

Having all your cleaning tools in one portable arrangement makes it much easier to get the job done. As you won’t waste time looking for tools while you clean, and don’t have to worry about gathering them before your next house cleaning.

Tip #2 - Decluttering

Before you even start to clean, pick up and clear the clutter around your place. As you pick up each item, consider whether you should put it away, toss it or donate it. Do some tidying work along the way by placing things back to the original place.

Tip #3 - Dust and vacuum

A good rule of thumb for house cleaning is to always clean from top down! That means to start with high places (like corners, ceiling fans, and cabinets), then turn your attention to your floors, so you can capture any debris that may be dislodged.

Use a long-handled duster, dry mop, or broom to reach up into those hard-to-reach areas and brush off the dirt and debris. Then vacuum the floors and get rid of anything you knocked down from the high corners.

Tip #4 - Wiping of glass surfaces

Use a damp microfiber cloth, followed by a dry cloth in wiping clean all the windows, mirrors and glass surfaces.

Tip #5 - Focus on tubs, sinks and toilets

Spray some cleaning solutions on the kitchen sink, bathroom sinks, tubs and toilets. Let it sit for a few minutes so the solution has time to dissolve dirt and stains. Then return to the kitchen and start scrubbing. Clean toilets last.

Tip #6 - Disinfect countertops and surface areas

Go through your house and wipe down the hard surfaces – from countertops, appliances and cabinets to doorknobs, light switches, TV remotes and telephones.

Tip #7 – Vacuum and mop

Vacuum the whole area and start mopping from the farthest corner of the room and move backwards towards the doorway. Rinse the mop every time you complete a 4-by-4 foot area.

Tip #8 – Clean and replace your cleaning tools

An often-overlooked part of home cleaning is maintaining your cleaning tools. Using a dirty mop or duster is much less effective, and you’ll end up spending more time trying to clean.
