How Efficient is Your Cleaning Routine? (Plus 3 Ways to Maximize Your Time)

Jun 12, 2021

Multi-tasking is no longer as trendy as it once was. After all, you really can only do one thing at a time if you’re wanting to do it right (and not drive yourself crazy). What is the topic of discussions right now, however, is becoming more efficient.

How can you get more done in less time and with less effort?

When it comes to cleaning your home, being efficient, especially when you’re as busy as most of us are, is the name of the game. By maximizing the little time you do have to clean and tidy, you can achieve better results and in record time. (Which means even more time to #claimyourweekend — and the rest of your life!)

If you’re wanting to refresh your cleaning habits, here are our 3 top tips for making yourself even more efficient…

1. Limit messes in the first place. There are a lot of preemptive things you can do in your home to help reduce the amount of cleaning you have to do. For example, having shoes removed at the front door, requiring food to be eaten only in the kitchen or dining room, and organizing closets, toys, office supplies, etc. so that everyone knows where everything goes are great ways to make cleaning your home less of a hassle. This way when you do have a moment to clean up, you’re able to get to the tasks you actually want (or should we say need) to do rather than those that are always demanding your attention.

2. Ask for help. If you’re the only person in your home who cleans, then it’s time to enlist the help of everyone, even young kids. It might seem obvious, but the absolute best way to maximize your cleaning efficiency is to have more people help you! Just remember to be specific with what you want done and be sure to assign tasks appropriately. The more fun you make it (turn on music or set a timer like a game show), the more people will be willing to help you next time.

3. Focus on one room at a time. One of the best ways to be efficient when cleaning your home is to tackle one complete room at a time. Rather than moving from one room to the next, picking up anything and everything you see or notice, focus on finishing one room first. This also helps to minimize the difficulties that come with sharing a home with your family — just as you clean up one thing in one room, another mess is made in another, and then another…
