Tricks to Reduce your Cleaning Time

Cleaning is not always enjoyable. It takes time and energy and may take a great of deal effort to give you the result you desire. This is especially true if you have other tasks that call for your attention. Sometimes you are forced to create time between schedules to do cleaning because staying in a dirty environment is not only unpleasant but also unhealthy. Some people go to the extent of outsourcing for cleaning work from cleaning companies to keep their surrounding clean and be able to attend to other duties.

However, cleaning doesn’t always have to be this way. You can handle your own cleaning and still get enough time to relax or attend to other activities. Some of the best tricks you can use are listed below.

Don’t let things pile up in your house.

You can exercise this and you will find it easy to manage cleaning. For example, ensure that once the dishes have been used, they are not kept on the kitchen counters or dining table awaiting cleaning afterward. Face the elephant in the room immediately. Once the dishes have been used, be on the move. Ensure that they land into the dishwasher and start it up once the racks are full. This will save you time that could have been used loading the dishwasher.

What we are looking at here simply is routine. Routine to do your dishes, general cleanups and even a routine of keeping things in place at all times.

Avoid distractions

If you want to minimize the time you use on cleaning, avoid distractions at all cost. Sometimes you are tempted to take a break and call a friend. Sometimes you will assure yourself that you will only take a few minutes on social media or read a few emails and resume with the cleaning. These are some of the things to keep away from until you are through with cleaning. You will be surprised at how much time you can save out of this. If you have to make or receive calls that can take long, how about folding clothes while on a hands-free-phone or stash out emails that you had not done away with yet.

Designate areas for everything else.

It can be overwhelming when you are trying to remember where you kept your umbrella on a rainy day. But this can be made easier when if you have not designated a place to keep certain items. To avoid wasting time on this, everything you use around the house should have a specific place where it can be easily found when it is needed. Once you have done this, remember to return them where they were once you have used them.

Honestly, not all of us are talented in keeping our spaces tidy. Actually, some of us seem to thrive in the most untidy spaces on earth!

Get a robotic vacuum cleaner.

This is for the carpet lover. Get yourself a vacuum cleaner. It will save your back.

Since you have to maintain cleanliness, consider getting a robotic vacuum cleaner. It saves you time since a push of a button can clean your Roomba hardwood floors within a short time. The best thing about it is that they are quite affordable. You can even get a robot mop that you can control using your phone.

Be orderly in your cleaning.

If you decide to rush from one corner of the house to the other trying to arrange shoes when you have not finished with the dishes and even before you are done with that you get down to cleaning the kitchen you will get exhausted fast and achieve very little by the end of it all. How about finishing on one task and handling the next? An Order is a key to effective, result-oriented cleaning. It saves time. You will easily know the areas that you have not touched on and schedule when to handle them, even if you postpone for another day.

Break it down

You can break down large tasks like cleaning the fridge and add them to the tasks you handle on a regular basis instead of choosing one day to do all that. This week’s rotation helps since your house will not have dirt piled up awaiting the general cleaning day. If you vacuum the carpet today, you can clean the window panes the next day, along with other daily tasks.


Though cleaning is exhausting and not many people enjoy doing it, with the tips provided above, you will not find it difficult to keep your house clean using less time.
