Due to the many sitting at home - with children - the household can sometimes disappear in the background. But if you want to sit on the couch in a relaxed way, it is beneficial to create peace around you. With the tips of these cleaning coaches, you will have a tidier house within thirty minutes.
This is called speed cleaning. According to professional organizer Irma Spaans of the company Mijn Huis Op Orde, we often do this when visitors suddenly announce themselves.
"Suddenly you notice the things that have been lying around for weeks: the toys, the magazines. The dirty fingers on the table, crumbs on the floor, but cleaning up doesn't have to be a panic round. "
How long does it take for a round of speed cleaning?
Spanish teaches its customers 'routine laps' from five minutes to half an hour. She therefore asks for help from her housemates. "Give them clear and clear assignments, because everyone has different thoughts about what has been cleaned up." For example, the parents collect dirty dishes and put them in the dishwasher, the children clean up the toys.
What is the best thing to do during the quick cleaning?
According to cleaning expert at Ik OrganIZ Ingeborg Koot it is best to start on the floor where you sit or where the visit comes. She starts at the counter and the sink. "They always catch the eye. I think people associate this with hygiene. You just want to be able to put a cookie on the counter."
Then comes the dining table. "Fold newspapers, magazines stacked, loose shoes leave the room and in the hall closet."
Then she puts the dishes in the dishwasher, picks up fallen leaves from her plants and shakes the pillows just right. Then the windows open. "For some fresh air."
And if you have time left?
Anyone who has time left can take a duster over the tables, says Spaans. All crumbs are allowed on the floor, because after that the vacuum cleaner is used. "Do this with the French stroke, later you will do it again thoroughly. Also take the vacuum cleaner over the bank."
For Koot, cleaning up is more important than streak-free cleaning during speed cleaning. "It's all about the visual aspect here."
