#1 Have a Plan
The most important thing to do when it comes to cleaning your home is to have a plan of action. Before you start cleaning, you need to make a plan of what you clean first and how you will move throughout your home. The best way to tackle cleaning your entire home is to work room-by-room. By focusing all of your attention on one room, you will be able to clean every aspect and be sure that you don’t miss anything or get distracted by things in other rooms. While working, you’ll want to clean from top to bottom. This will ensure that you don’t have to re-clean floors after dusting. Even if you don’t take this approach, having a plan of how you will clean your home will ensure that you get everything done in a timely manner.
Before you begin to clean your surfaces, you’ll want to go through all of your things and declutter your spaces. Go through the things that you have and start making piles of things to donate and things to throw away. This will free up space wherever you need it and it will allow you to organize your spaces easily. A good rule of thumb to use when deciding whether to keep something or get rid of it is that if you haven’t used it in 6 months, then it is time to get rid of it. By decluttering your space, you will be able to clean surfaces and interior spaces easier and quicker.
While you may not think to sanitize everything once you’ve cleaned, it is probably the most important step to take, especially during this time. Just cleaning surfaces with a multi-purpose cleaner won’t get rid of the germs that are lingering. Once you clean the surface, go back with a disinfectant like Clorox or Lysol wipes to ensure that your surfaces are not only clean but sanitized.
