As a cleaning business in Amarillo, we have picked up a few things over the years that can help when you are trying to maintain cleaning sanity until the next time you hire a service.

Create a System – According to an article in Popular Mechanics, Debbie Sardone, speed cleaning expert and maid service owner says that “cutting your [cleaning] time in half starts with a system. That means cleaning your house in the same order every time: Working one room at a time, starting and finishing at the same spot in a room so that you don't waste time running back and forth.” You can always creating a checklist that will help with this!

Start with the hardest job first – Typically, you have the most energy when you begin cleaning so start with the hardest job first. When you use your energy on a space that needs elbow grease, you will do a better job than if you were to save it for later!

Watch the Order – When cleaning, it is always best to clean top to bottom in order to save time and effort. If you dust the bottom blind first and move up, the dust will fall onto your newly cleaned blinds and you will have to redundantly tidy up a space.

Clean a little bit daily – A good rule of thumb is to clean a little bit daily – this way you won’t be as overwhelmed and let things pile up.
