1. They Clean Their Cleaning Tools
Believe it or not, your cleaning tools need to be cleaned regularly.
Your broom, vacuum, washing machine, mop, and everything else you use to clean your home with needs to be cleaned on a regular basis or you’ll be spreading more germs.
2. They Know the Difference Between Cleaning and Disinfecting
Cleaning is the removal of debris from surfaces using soap and water.
Disinfecting kills germs by using chemical cleaning agents.
Knowing the difference between these 2 terms will help you clean your home properly with the right cleaners.
3. They Declutter, Then Clean and Organize
You can’t clean a room or space if it’s crowded with clutter.
Completely empty the space you’re working on first and sort everything into 2 piles.
One pile will be for the things you want to keep, and the other pile will be for things you want to get rid of.
Then, clean the area while it’s still empty. Throw away the trash, dust shelves, and wipe down surfaces.
Finally, organize the items you’re keeping.
4. They Give Their Cleaning Products Time To Work
Most commercial cleaning products need to sit and remain wet on a surface for a matter of minutes.
Spraying a surface with cleaner and immediately wiping it away doesn’t give the product enough time to break down stains and kill germs.
5. They Clean From Top To Bottom
If you were to clean a desk before dusting a ceiling fan, the dust from the ceiling fan would fall on the clean desk surface, making it dirty again.
When you clean from top to bottom, you clean the tallest surfaces first and allow the dust from the tall surfaces to settle on the floor.
Once you clean the lower surfaces and the floor, you’re all done.
6. They Control Clutter Before It Gets Out of Hand
Clean people know that it’s easier to keep clutter under control than trying to clean a house that’s already overloaded with clutter.
Declutter your home on a regular basis to keep it clean and clutter-free.
