Whether you are a homeowner or a commercial building manager, every building has its cleaning challenges. One of the first steps is to have a strategy on how to clean your building. By implementing a strong cleaning strategy, you can overcome some of these cleaning challenges. Today we are going to focus on cleaning for residential buildings. After years of working in the professional cleaning industry and countless hours of training from experts across the world, here are some of the top commercial cleaning strategies that can be used in your residential home.
Secret #1: Multi-Tasking
Companies today love to sell homeowners lots of specialty tools for cleaning. Don’t fall prey to all of the great new cleaners and gadgets that are out there. It is easy to buy these new gadgets, but often they only clean one type of surface. Stick to the all-purpose tools and cleaners, they can be used across multiple types of surfaces.
Secret #2: Get the right tools
More often than not, we get suckered into having too many tools. In some cases, it is good to have a single tool that is great for that hard to reach the spot. However, when you have too many tools, you get overwhelmed. Some of the best tools are simple tools like microfiber cleaning cloths, sponges, a handled scrub brush and a good quality vacuum. Keep it simple.
Secret #3: Tooth cleaners
When you have to tackle those hard to reach spots in the kitchen or bathroom, grab a toothbrush. It is hard to find anything out there that will beat this nifty little brush when cleaning tight spots.
Secret #4: Don’t carry it around
Have you ever had to carry a bag of golf clubs around? Of course, you would prefer to drive across the green with a buggy. Once you have all of your supplies assembled, get a cleaning caddy for all of your cleaning supplies. The goal here is to keep all of your cleaning supplies right at your fingertips at all times.
Secret #5: Clean the showerhead
When you look up at the showerhead, is there a yucky residue there? If so, it is easy to remove this by putting some vinegar in a baggie and tie it up around the showerhead with the head in the vinegar. The vinegar will dissolve the build-up in the showerhead overnight.
Secret #6: Clean the low spots
Just when you are done cleaning the whole house. Don’t stop there! Get down at eye level on your floors and check to see if there is anything that you missed. A little trick to see those things that you missed would be to shine a flashlight at eye level across the floor.
