Get Faster Cleaning Speeds with Our 6 Vital Hacks!

Cleaning up the house doesn’t have to be a daunting, time-consuming task when you have MEIDE’s 6 vital hacks to ensure a faster cleaning process.

Yes, with a few strategic moves and some preparation, you can streamline the process and achieve a sparkling clean house in no time. Who said you cannot clean deeply, thoroughly and clean fast at the same time?

Here are six vital hacks to help you clean faster and more efficiently.

1. Prepare Cleaning Tools for Faster Cleaning

Before you dive into cleaning, gather all your supplies. Having everything you need at arm’s reach can save you loads of time. Grab your mop, vacuum, dusters, cleaning solutions, and microfiber cloths, and keep them in a portable caddy. This preparation is key to faster cleaning processes and results!

In fact, if you are a homeowner engaging a part time helper or household service cleaner, be sure to show them where you keep all the cleaning tools at the outset. Rest assured that it is part of our standard cleaning training done amongst cleaners too for them to always ask about where all the tools are kept.

After all, getting cleaning done fast and furious but also thoroughly and in detail, is our primary objective!

2. Do a Preliminary Dust-Down and Sweep

Kick-off your cleaning spree with a quick dust-down and sweep. This helps eliminate loose dust and debris, making the actual cleaning process faster and more effective. Dust from top to bottom, so you don’t end up doubling your work. Fun fact: dust first because it’s scientifically proven that gravity is not on your side. What goes up must come down—especially dust!

On top of this, be sure to use an efficient broom to sweep from the dusty corners all the way to the door entrances. This way, you will prevent the further spread of dust, as we walk around the house to continue our cleaning processes.

Professional household cleaners like those from MEIDE are always trained to do this, so that they quicken the pace of cleaning and save you (the house owner) time and money!

3. Pack Up First for Faster Cleaning

Third, always tidy and pack up before cleaning!

Ever tried sweeping the floor and then get stuck because of toys strewn over the floor, or furniture blocking your path?

Worse, you find bags, books and cartons randomly placed over shelves and floors. These hinder your speed of cleaning severely!

Remember, tidying up before you start cleaning is a game-changer. Always put away any clutter like toys, books, or clothes first. This step clears the way for more efficient and faster cleaning and reduces distractions.

4. The Checklist / To-Do List

Next, create a checklist of tasks to keep the cleaning focused and organized. Break down the cleaning into manageable sections and tackle them one by one.

After completing the first 3 initial steps for faster cleaning, we can now start the official REQUIRED cleaning tasks.

Importantly, this checklist will help cleaners stay on track and ensure errands and targeted areas of the abode are not missed!

For post renovation, post tenancy and spring cleaning of the whole house, a thorough cleaning checklist can be easily found here at MEIDE Blog!

As a bonus, remember to put in a short few minutes of break for water and rest, especially for cleaning durations over 3-4 hours. A little motivation goes a long way toward achieving faster cleaning.

Do you know why the pillow needed a break? Because it was feeling a bit down…

5. Final Re-Organization

An oft-missed step, re-organization and repositioning of loose items is important for faster cleaning during the long run.

After cleaning, take a few minutes to re-organize the living space. Fluff pillows, tidy the bed sheets, straighten books, and arrange décor items. This final touch not only makes our homely abodes look pristine but also helps maintain order. Final re-organization contributes to faster cleaning by preventing clutter from returning quickly!

Moreover, home dwellers will find themselves less often hunting for missing items after cleaning sessions!

6. Familiarity Breeds Faster Cleaning

Last but not least, familiarity breeds faster cleaning!

The more you clean, the more familiar you become with your home’s quirks and crannies. This applies not just for new homeowners, but also to our regular housekeepers attending house cleaning daily!

The familiarity speeds up the cleaning process as cleaners develop a routine and discover the best techniques for each area. Besides, every homeowner might also have their unique way of arranging things and needing special attention to certain areas.

This is why at MEIDE Cleaning, we always encourage homeowners to keep to the same cleaner, and maintain an uninterrupted routine cleaning schedule. For example, a 4-hour cleaning session once a week works pretty well for most 4-room HDB units in Singapore!

Bonus Tip: Clear Out and Don’t Continually Dirty Cleaned Areas

Once a section of the house is cleaned, keep it clean by not using it until cleaning is completed for the entire space. This prevents cleaners from having to re-clean areas they’ve already worked on.

Think of your home as a dance floor. Once you’ve polished a section, move gracefully to the next without retracing your steps.

We hope these 6 vital tips have saved your energy and time for cleaning! Or, if you are a professional cleaner, we hope it has enhanced your skillset!

By incorporating these hacks into your routine, you’ll find that cleaning residences can be faster, more efficient, and even satisfying! So roll up your sleeves, put on your favorite tunes, and let’s get cleaning! Faster cleaning is within your reach with us MEIDE by your side.
