Maintaining daily housekeeping can be a drag, but it doesn't have to take up all your time. Keeping a clean home is not about the time involved and more about creating good habits and just following intuitively. Filipino houses can be beautiful in their own way. Still, these homes are also prone to dirt, dust, and pollution from the environment. It can be a troublesome challenge to exert a full week of general cleaning for the upcoming gatherings and reunions.
Here are 7 efficient cleaning tips that will surely achieve a clean, tidy, and dust-free Filipino home!
1. Clean as you go, and don't let it pile up.
Live by this rule to make cleaning more straightforward: If you used or touch it, take care of it. Whenever you use a space or a thing, don't just leave it for another day. Go out of your way to ensure that anything you wear, use, or move ends up where it belongs. Also, we all have our versions of "the chair." It's that place where you just dump things when you get crazy busy. The bigger your junk pile becomes, the less motivated you become to clean it. So, deal with the quick and easy tasks appropriately, and you'll save time in the process.
2. Work from top to bottom
Everyone who cleans a home should know this universal cleaning rule. No matter what you are cleaning, always start from the top, going down so that the dust and dirt fall on the lower surfaces that are yet to be cleaned. Cleaning the floors should always be your last step.
When you schedule to clean the house on a particular day of the week or month, know that not all cleaning is created equal. Make a list of what should be done first, what you would like to get done, and what could be delayed until your next cleaning day. With the limited time you have in a day, jot your tasks down.
4. Do one room at a time.
The simplest way to keep your entire house clean is to tackle one room at a time. You can easily accomplish bit by bit instead of dealing with it all at once by dividing the cleaning by room and by day.
5. Declutter your home once in a while.
Taking the time to declutter and organize your home will remarkably reduce the amount of time needed to clean. Don't overcrowd your shelves, as this will be harder for you to meticulously clean in the next following weeks. Having a spot for everything (accessible and easy to put away) makes it so much easier to tidy up. Keep the things around your home organized, easy to clean and maintain. Throw away stuff that you don't need or haven't used in a while. If you don't know how to start decluttering, there are tons of methods online that you can follow.
With a little time and effort, you can easily create great cleaning habits to keep your Filipino home tidy all year round. Don't you just love it when you have an organized space and a lovely fresh smell all over your home? And who doesn't like to live in a tidy and hygienic place? Yet, cleaning the house is indeed a tiring thing to do, especially if you have a full-time job and several family members living within you. There is hardly enough time to do all the tidying up by yourself. However, hiring a professional cleaning service can easily take that burden away from your shoulders.
