Living in Colorado, you want to keep your home nice and clean. In Colorado Springs house cleaning can be a chore, especially due to the high elevation. Therefore, you don’t want to be wasting your precious time and energy by overdoing it. Here are some tips that will make cleaning your house less of a nuisance.
Our #1 Tip for Colorado Springs House Cleaning : Check Your Cleaning Supplies!
Before you start cleaning, make sure your cleaning supplies are clean. Duh! You will be surprised at how many people forget to clean or replace their cleaning supplies.
If you start cleaning with worn and dirty supplies, they won’t get the job done as efficiently. They might even make things worse. Have you ever tried to mop the floor with a dirty mop?
Start From The Top
So you swept and mopped the floor already. Good job! Now you still have to dust the shelves, the TV, the furniture, and the ceiling fan. Uh, oh!
If you clean the floor first and then you start dusting, you risk having dust fall on the floor. Then you have to clean the floor all over again (for those of you with rugs, this can be even worse). This is a big no-no. Start from the top and work your way to the bottom.
Clean Spills Before They Become Stains
Spilt some milk on the rug? You might think, ugh, I’ll clean it later. Wrong! This is how stains form. You need to get to work immediately.
One of the best ways to prevent stains is from preventing the spill in the first place. But if the spill is already done, clean it up as soon as possible. This will lessen the chance of getting a bad stain, whether it’s on cloth, floor tiles, or walls.
Regularly Clean Things You Often Touch
People touch many foods with their hands, like potato chips, cookies, and fruits. There are many things around the house that you touch with your hands frequently: the TV remote, door knobs, computer keyboards, your phone, et cetera. Keep these things clean by wiping them down regularly.
This is also a good way to prevent from catching a cold, especially if somebody in the house is sick.
Tie Up Electrical Wires
Electrical wires are dust sponges. Zip-tie them so they are easier to clean later. This one can be done when installing the wires.
At the end of the day, if you hate cleaning, you’ll never really get around to it. The best thing you could probably do is hire your own cleaning service. It’s the best time and energy saver of them all.
