Keeping your house clean can seem like an impossible task, especially if you have pets, young children, or you just don’t have enough time on your hands. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to make house maintenance much easier, whether that’s through our home and office cleaning services or by utilising some of our effective tips and tricks. We encourage you to use our FAQs below as something of a house cleaning guide to aid you in cleaning your house quickly and efficiently.

Your regular home cleaning guide — how to clean your house properly

To clean your house properly, you’ll need to use the right products and equipment. This means using cleaning products, whether store-bought or homemade, that will actually do their job. Cheap cleaning products won’t effectively dissolve dirt or stains, which will make cleaning your house much more labour-intensive.

Using poor-quality vacuum cleaners, mops, and other cleaning equipment and products could also lead to you accidentally leaving dirty spots in your home. We recommend either hiring a cleaning service that already owns all the best cleaning gear or investing in a few quality pieces for yourself.

FAQs

How do you clean my house efficiently?

Here at Jim’s Cleaning, we can offer you plenty of tips on how to clean your house as efficiently as possible. The first tip is to keep all of your cleaning tools in a caddy of some sort. Otherwise, you’ll end up wasting time and energy by constantly having to run back to grab more paper towels, cleaning products or whatever else you don’t have at hand.

If you have limited time, we recommend taking on simpler tasks that can make the entire house look cleaner, such as dusting, sweeping, and wiping down mirrors and glass with a microfibre cloth. You should also disinfect countertops and other surfaces around your house with some sort of nontoxic disinfection solution. This is particularly important for objects that people touch all the time, such as light switches, doorknobs, fridge handles and television remotes.

Another way to speed up your clean is to spray cleaner on all of your sinks, tubs, and toilets. By giving it some time to sit, the cleaner can begin dissolving dirt and stains, making your job much easier. If you try to clean these surfaces without letting a product sit, you could end up wasting a major portion of your day needlessly scrubbing.

How do you clean your house like a professional?

If you want to clean your house like a professional, you may need to adapt your usual approach and the products you use. Professional cleaners only use high-quality products and equipment that thoroughly dissolve stains and sanitise your belongings. Investing in some good products and a powerful vacuum cleaner, for example, can completely transform your cleaning experience.

Professional cleaners also approach home cleanings with a plan of some sort. Experts also tend to work in teams, particularly for full house cleanings. So, we recommend making cleaning a household activity that everyone living under your roof helps out with in some way. This could be as simple as unloading the dishwasher, sweeping, or everyone picking up the clutter that belongs in their individual rooms.

That all being said, there’s also nothing wrong with hiring a professional cleaning team or home cleaning service to take on the task for you!

In what order do you clean your house?

The order in which you clean rooms and do certain tasks can influence your entire cleaning experience. Conventional wisdom says to start by cleaning the most difficult room, which in most homes is the bathroom. Bathrooms tend to be small, but there’s so much to clean in there, including a sink, toilet, and shower/bathtub. Given how labour-intensive cleaning can be, it’s wise to get this room out of the way first. All of the work you do afterwards will feel easier by comparison.

Another tip — if you plan on dusting, make sure you do so before vacuuming. Otherwise, all the dust you’ve removed from your belongings will just dirty the floor again. The best way of doing things is to dust, organising your things along the way, and then vacuum. You can end your cleaning by mopping. You may be tempted to mop directly after vacuuming, but if you do so, you will have to wait for your floors to dry to get back to cleaning.

How do you deep clean a house in one day?

If you want to accomplish a deep clean of your house in one day, it’s essential to have a plan ahead of time. What rooms are you cleaning? How long do you plan on spending cleaning each room? Once you have a checklist written out, you’re much more likely to stay on track. You’ll also have a better understanding of your progress and will be less likely to forget any chores.

You can save yourself some time on the day of the deep cleaning by doing a few things the night before. You could collect all of your cleaning supplies and put them in the rooms they’ll be used in, have garbage bags on standby, and do anything else to make your day easier. Also, make sure to get a good night’s sleep, so you have the energy to take on this deep clean by yourself.

If you’re not particularly interested in taking on this major task alone, especially all in one day, you can always ask your housemates for assistance. Of course, you can also arrange for professional home cleaning services. There are experienced home cleaners that can effectively deep clean your residence in just a few hours, and all for a very fair price.

Are professional home cleaning services expensive?

Is the potential cost of professional cleaning services one of the only things holding you back? Many subject themselves to doing deep cleanings on their own because they assume they can’t afford a cleaning service. There are some high-end cleaning services out there that charge way too much. However, most people can easily afford a fast clean from a cleaning service that offers fair prices.

Jim’s Cleaning is one of these services. We’re committed to offering fantastic deals for all of our clients, which include just $99 for fast cleans. We view our services as a small yet practical luxury that makes your life easier and helps keep your home sparkling lean. For a more specific price, you’re welcome to request a quote from us.

What are the benefits of regular home cleaning?

There are so many benefits to having a clean house. A clean home is notably less likely to develop mould or pests. Regular cleaning will also reduce allergies and lower the risk of injury from tripping over clutter. Another major benefit of a sanitised and visually appealing home is that you’ll feel much better about inviting people over and hosting guests.

A clean home is also good for both your mental and physical health. You may find yourself feeling less stressed out throughout the day. As for the physical effects, studies have linked a clean home to a higher drive for physical activity and as a predictor of cardiovascular health.

What is the smart way to clean a house?

The smart way of cleaning your house is to employ all of the tips and tricks mentioned above, such as preparing the night before, doing things in a particular order, and using quality products! That being said, it’s also smart to identify when a task is too large for you to take on by yourself. That’s why it’s important to ask for help when you need it, whether that’s from friends, family, or a business offering expert home and office cleaning services.

What could be smarter than passing on the task to a fully insured, fully trained, and police-checked staff that knows what they’re doing? Not only do they have the experience to thoroughly clean your house, but they also have all the best products and equipment on hand. When selecting a business to clean your home, we recommend only choosing teams that offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. For small businesses like ours, knowing that you’re completely happy and satisfied with the results is our top priority.
