Cleanliness is…Try This at Home!

More Savvy Tips

Most of us don't want to spend all day cleaning house. The idea is to get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible, right? Professionals like the owner of a Diamond Certified house cleaning company, know how to minimize cleaning time with maximum results. Mr. Sunnen says the best way is to start in a corner of a room, usually by a door, and work from top to bottom. Take out the cobwebs, dust, vacuum and then mop.

It's also a good idea to start at the back end of the house and work forward. Wearing an apron with pockets stocked with cleaning tool and products saves time and extra steps too. The "must-haves" include a poly-wool duster for lampshades, a sponge with an abrasive side, 4 to 5 cloth towels, a grout brush and your favorite furniture polish. And, don't forget the elbow grease!
