Strategy: The Base Tool

The first and foremost secret of house cleaning: have a strategy. Professional cleaners follow a set plan, cleaning in a particular way as they are under time constraints and have to clean a number of houses in a day. If there is no plan, chaos will reign and you will certainly not be able to complete your cleaning tasks on time.

Know Your Surfaces and Cleaning Solutions

Different types of solutions are needed for different types of stains, from moderate to extreme. Knowing which cleaning solution will work best on which surface stain can really speed up your work and efficiency.

Bear in mind that many popular house cleaning solutions may damage the surface if applied incorrectly. Don’t mix solutions that contain bleach and ammonia together as the combination produces a very deadly gas which is extremely dangerous. Alkaline or acidic cleaners, such as vinegar, used on marble, travertine and several other natural stones can etch or destroy the finish.
