So your home is in disarray and you have guests arriving in an hour? Or perhaps you’ve been putting off doing those chores and just want to finish them as soon as possible. So, how do you quickly clean your home?
A FORMER HOTEL MAID AND HOUSEKEEPER’S TRICKS
I spent a few summers working as a hotel maid and private house cleaner while I was in college. You CAN clean an ENTIRE average-sized house in an hour if you follow a few tactics I’ve learned, but it takes hustle and concentration!
Do not get sidetracked by collecting those outdated magazines or checking Facebook on your phone. Keep going and implement this advice, and you’ll soon have that house spotless!
This is a surface cleaning that will get the most done in the least amount of time; we are not currently deep cleaning the house.
Tips for Quick House Cleaning!
Cleaning should always begin at the top of a room so that dirt and dust from upper surfaces fall on lower surfaces that haven’t been cleaned. Dust the ceiling fans, then the furniture, and then sweep debris onto the floor. Your final step should be to clean all of the floors to get rid of the dust and filth.
Clean all the bathrooms in a batch. Save washing the floors of the entire house for the last stage.

6 minutes per bedroom, each
- Remake beds and strip the sheets. Instead of stooping over to tuck the bottom sheets beneath the mattress when making beds, use one hand to lift the corner and the other to tuck the sheet.
- Eliminate any messes. If you’re pressed for time, collect debris in an extra container or basket for later organisation and stash it away in a closet.
- Working from top to bottom, dust furniture using a dusting spray and a microfiber cloth.
EACH BATHROOM USES 7 MINUTES.
- I like to clean all of my bathrooms at once, so I quickly go through the home clearing the counters and spraying cleaner on the tubs and counters, letting them sit while I clean the toilets and wipe down the outer toilet surface.
- Clean the mirrors after wiping down the surfaces and rinsing the tub.
- When cleaning the kitchen floor, return to clean the floors.
7 minutes LIVING/DINING ROOM
- Eliminate any messes.
- Dust every surface in the space beginning at one corner and moving outward. (Dust any blinds or ceiling fans, if you have any.)
- Vacuum upholstered furniture with an upholstery attachment.
KITCHENERY: 12 minutes
- Put all of the dirty dishes in the dishwasher and run hot, soapy water through the sink. Put the removable burner pieces from your stove top in water as well if you need to clean them.
- bare countertops.
- Before cleaning cabinets, counters, and other surfaces from top to bottom, squeeze extra water from the sponge.
- As you clean, rinse the sponge in hot water.
- Clean the appliances.
- Replace any stove parts that still need to be cleaned.
15 minutes for each floor of the house.
- Clean carpeted areas. Move swiftly and without too much overlap to exit the room working your way backwards to conserve time.
- Instead of sweeping hard floors, use an attachment to reach nooks and crannies where dust and pet hair may collect.
- I highly suggest investing in one of those to keep your cleaning quick! Steam mops and hardwood floor cleaners are also considerably faster than standard mops in cleaning hard surfaces.
- Always clean top to bottom to prevent dirt and dust from collecting on uncleaned surfaces.
- After all other cleaning has been completed, clean the floors last.
- After vacuuming all carpeted areas, vacuum all hard surfaces. Finish by thoroughly cleaning each hard surface floor in a single session.
- Cleaning can be hastened with the aid of tools like a steam mop or hardwood floor cleaner.
