1. Focus on areas that appear messy and cluttered
It is not humanly possible to touch up each and every nook and cranny in the rooms of your home. Attempting to do so may wear you out even before you’ve completed the task of home cleaning. Start with cleaning and de-cluttering the areas that can easily catch the attention of guests and visitors, not to mention yours.
These sections include the main entrance, cabinets, and cupboards, and bathroom to name a few. Dusting the books, crockery, cutlery, shoe rack, sofa sets will make your home appear tidier.
2. Clean carpets and rugs once in a while
Carpets and rugs in your home will look spotless if you cleanse these deeply once every six months. If you clean the mats just a couple times in a year, doing up the areas lightly every two months will go a long way in making them look squeaky clean.
3. Make your own all-purpose cleaner
There are many items in your house that you’ve already discarded which is gathering dust in the cellar or storeroom.

Clean the floors in these areas first with a broom and then use a mop soaked in water for wiping. You can make a weekly home cleaning schedule and try to complete at least a task or two in a day.
5. Take advantage of technology for cleaning
The latest models of washing machines are equipped with advanced technology that enables to meticulously clean, rinse, and dry upholsteries including curtains and sofa covers almost effortlessly. Rinsing the fabrics and upholsteries not only make them look neat but also helps clear accumulated dust mites and microbes.

6. Be innovative while getting rid of deep seating dust
