For busy New Yorkers, cleaning is often the last thing on the do-to list. Whether you’re a young professional working long hours at the office, or a busy parent struggling with schedules, we often just don’t have time to keep things clean.
However, we also know the benefits of a clean space. Cleanliness help us think clearly and enjoy our lives. Living in an organized space is good for both mental and physical health, and makes hosting guests at home or clients in the office much more pleasant.
At NY Brite, our professional cleaners help people all across New York keep their homes and offices clean and organized. Our cleaning team has years of experience cleaning effectively and efficiently. In this post, we’re sharing 4 easy tips to get your space clean quickly, so you can enjoy life without worrying about the mess.
Make a Plan
If cleaning seems to be taking too long, you’re probably not making an effective cleaning plan. It’s easy to waste time doing small and inefficient cleaning tasks, rather than tackling the major cleaning projects that make a real difference. If you need to really clean up, spend the first few minutes thinking of what needs to get done first, and how to do it best.
For those facing major cleaning projects, the good news is that there’s an enormous industry of cleaning products available to make things easier. Don’t waste your time trying to clean every room and surface with the same basic products - find specialized and effective cleaning products and you’ll save time and improve your results.
Dress for Success
Cleaning can be a workout! Don’t try to clean in your work clothes or your PJs. Put on clothing that’s durable, comfortable, and that you’re not worried about staining. Having good cleaning clothes will allow you to get into those nooks and crannies and scrub vigorously without worrying about fashion or flexibility.
Throw Things Out
Does your apartment always look messy, even though you’ve just cleaned it? Most likely you’ve just got too much stuff crammed into a small space. We all know that rents are high and units small here in NYC - too much clutter can really make you feel cramped. Books you’ll never read? Clothes you’ll never wear? Consider making a donation to Goodwill and freeing up some space.
Play Some Music
Most people think of cleaning as a dull chore. However it can be a lot more fun, and go faster, by putting on some music and getting into the flow. Focus on fast and energetic music and you’ll find yourself more enthusiastic about getting the job done. Harness that energy, and in combination with the right gear, the right cleaning clothes, and a clear plan, your space will be spick and span in no time.
We hope that these simple tips will help you get your home or office clean quickly and easily. If you're looking for more help with your cleaning tasks, consider hiring a professional.
