Our tips to help you

To have a clean environment, it is essential to engage in an activity that is often unpleasant: house cleaning. Whether it’s daily chores or a major seasonal cleaning, we sometimes make numerous mistakes that can be avoided and that would optimize our results. Discover our tips to help you be more productive and efficient in your cleaning!

How to organize?

First, start by removing dust from surfaces. Work from top to bottom to avoid moving dust onto an already clean surface. This procedure will allow for more effective cleaning. Then, when all surfaces are cleaned, they need to be disinfected. After that, you just need to tackle the floors, from carpets to hardwood. Good organization is the key to success. Therefore, plan your cleaning by dividing tasks by room and establishing a logical order. For example, start with the most frequented rooms, like the living room and kitchen, and then finish with the bedrooms and bathrooms. You can also use checklists to ensure that each task is properly completed.

Cleaning and disinfecting

There is indeed a difference between cleaning and disinfecting! In fact, they are two complementary steps. It is very important to perform both of these steps.

  • Cleaning:

First of all, cleaning involves removing all dirt residues, such as dust, from surfaces. Moreover, this first step should be performed more frequently than disinfecting to keep our living environment clean.

  • Disinfecting:

Next, disinfecting involves neutralizing bacteria present in our environment. As a result, this step should be performed from time to time since it eliminates both good and bad bacteria. Therefore, it is important not to overdo it!

  • Products

Moreover, we remind you that each product has its own function. Indeed, some products clean but do not disinfect, and vice versa. This is why you must pay attention to the labels of the products you buy to be effective during this step. In fact, using appropriate products for each surface is crucial to avoid damaging your furniture and appliances. For example, an abrasive cleaner might be effective on hard surfaces like stone countertops, but it can scratch wood or delicate surfaces.

Using cleaning products

Most of the time, we spray our cleaning product directly onto the surface to be cleaned. This is actually the most common mistake! Indeed, when we spray the product onto a surface, it disperses the dirt present on the surface into the air. Thus, the dirt will then fall onto other surfaces. This is why we recommend spraying your products directly onto your cloth. This procedure will allow for more effective and productive cleaning. Also, be careful not to use too much product to avoid leaving residues on cleaned surfaces. Additionally, use microfiber cloths as they capture dirt and bacteria better without needing much product. Moreover, these cloths are reusable and eco-friendly, making them a sustainable option for cleaning.

Cleaning floors

Once all surfaces are clean, we now move on to the floors. Start by vacuuming your carpets, rugs, and floors. This will allow you to remove all the dust and dirt accumulated on your floor and in your carpets. For your carpets, rugs, or mats, take the time to treat stains using appropriate products like the product of PRO-SEC and/or consult our various tips. Additionally, if your carpets, rugs, or mats require deep cleaning, feel free to contact us to obtain our services. Once your carpets, rugs, or mats are clean, you will just need to mop your floors to clean and disinfect them thoroughly. Don’t forget to use hot water and an appropriate disinfectant to effectively eliminate germs and bacteria.

Cleaning and disinfecting your cleaning tools

Once the cleaning is finished, it is essential to clean your tools. Indeed, cloths, vacuum cleaner, mop, and sponge all need to be cleaned. For cloths and sponges, a machine wash or soaking in a disinfectant solution is necessary. The vacuum cleaner should be emptied and cleaned regularly to prevent it from redistributing dust. Mops should also be washed after each use to remain effective and hygienic.

Additional tips for productive cleaning

  • Decluttering regularly:

Indeed, a cluttered space is harder to clean. So, get into the habit of regularly sorting through your belongings and getting rid of what you no longer need. This will greatly facilitate cleaning, make it more productive, and make your home more pleasant to live in.

  • Using the right tools:

Moreover, investing in quality tools can make all the difference. For example, a good vacuum cleaner, microfiber cloths, and effective cleaning products can save you time and energy.

  • Listening to music or podcasts:

Also, turning cleaning into an enjoyable activity by listening to music or podcasts can make this task less tedious. Thus, you can even use the time to learn something new or relax.

  • Establishing a cleaning routine:

Next, adopting a cleaning routine can help you keep your home clean without excessive effort. For example, spend a few minutes each day on specific tasks rather than doing everything at once.

  • Involving the whole family:

Indeed, involving the whole family in cleaning can make the task lighter. Moreover, each person can have their own responsibilities, which helps to divide the work, be productive, and spend more time together.

In conclusion

By following these tips and adopting an organized and methodical approach, you can be productive in your cleaning. Additionally, cleaning will be less tedious and more effective. Also, a clean and well-maintained environment contributes not only to your well-being but also to your health. So, don’t hesitate to put these tips into practice for an impeccable home!
