Quick Easy Tips For Cleaning Any Room

Room CleaningStart at the back end of the house. Work your way to the front. Catching one room at the time. Work around the room once. Don't backtrack. Carry your equipment and supplies with you so you don't make dozens of trips back and forth across the room. Walk around the room once and you're done. Work from top to bottom. When you start at the top and work to the bottom, you won't be constantly re-cleaning surfaces with dirt from above.

Don't rinse a surface before it's clean. It is always better to dry wipe than wet wipe first.

All tools must be kept in good shape. This includes clean wiping clothes, razors, spray bottles, and clean vacuum bags.

Janitorial Supplies Organize your caddy. Always keep a neat clean caddy to hold your supplies. Put your supplies in the same place each time. Items are so much easier to find the next time.

Concentrate on what you are doing, It will make the job go faster and easier.
