If you are running out of things to do during this time of lockdown and self-isolation, why not tackle the task of cleaning your apartment or house? Before starting your cleaning campaign, you’ll need to have your cleaning supplies. You’re going to clean different surface types so you need to have on hand the right cleaning products for the different surfaces like glass, wood, tile, etc. Some supplies you might need include:
- All-purpose cleaning spray
- Glass cleaner
- Paper towels
- Mop or broom
- Garbage bag
Consider using eco-friendly cleaning supplies as they are safer to use in homes with pets and children.
CLEAN FROM ROOM TO ROOM
The fastest way you can clean your apartment would be to go from one room to the next. If you focus on cleaning one room at a time, you can get the rhythm of the cleaning process and you will become more efficient after a while. Your progress will also become more evident which will only encourage you to keep going. If you find items in one room that belong to another, put them in one container so you save time from running from room to room just to place items in their proper spot. If you have one installed, wipe the lens on the spy camera with audio and ensure it’s still working.
DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE COUCH
If your home is like most homes, then the living room is the first thing people see when they enter. The couch is pretty obvious furniture in the living room and one that draws most of the attention. By making it presentable at all times, guests and yourself from the impression that the rest of the house is as tidy as the couch. Make sure you brush away pet hair, crumbs, and dust off of the couch. And check behind and underneath the cushions to ensure no random items are stuck there.
CLEAN THE COFFEE TABLE
Right after the couch, next, you’ll have to pay close attention to the coffee table. Making it clean and presentable, just like the couch, will make the room a lot livelier and more welcoming. Dust the table off and stack all the items you have on it for display. Remove old magazines and stack up-to-date ones neatly.
ORGANIZE YOUR CLOTHES
Just because they live in your room and out of sight from the rest of the house doesn’t mean they should be piled up in a chair awaiting your attention. An organized room helps people sleep a lot better and could also help productivity. Don’t wait to put them away after you’ve taken them off the drier. Folding them and storing them neatly will mean more room for you in your room to do other stuff. Plus, it will make the room fresher and brighter.
DON’T HOARD TRASH
And speaking of the bedroom, make sure you clear out your trash can regularly. Don’t wait for it to fill up as most bedrooms take a couple of days or weeks before bins fill up. The last thing you want is for your room to smell because of rotting spoiled food in the trash can. Clear it out every couple of days and before you put a new garbage bag on it, spray it with some disinfectant spray.
