It doesn’t matter whether you live in a three bedroom semi detached dwelling or whether you own a small cottage, the chances are the chores are tedious, and you do anything to get out of doing them. However, miss a day cleaning and your home can soon look like a bomb has gone off in it. To keep your home looking tidy, you need to ensure that you have a plan of action every time that you tackle the mess. You should have some sort of regimen that you stick to every time you whip out the hoover, put on your marigolds and polish your mantelpiece. Take a look at how you can revolutionize your approach to tidying by taking on some speed cleaning techniques.


Before you do anything, it’s vital that your pad is actually fit to clean. If you have an abundance of clutter strewn across the floor, knick-knacks, and ornaments adorning your bookshelves and an obscene amount of ‘stuff’ outside of storage furniture, then your cleaning is going to take much longer. Instead, declutter by looking at each room of the house and working out what you need in each place. Would you even notice if the African masks were removed from your bookcase? Whip up some cool artwork or photography, add a splash of greenery and keep the clutter to a bare minimum. You don’t have to take it to the charity shop and can store it in your loft space instead.


They say a bad workman blames his tools, but in cleaning, your pieces of equipment are vital to the success of your speed cleaning venture. Yes, you might have a fantastic vacuum that picks up even the toughest embedded dog hair from Fido, but if it’s a hunk of a machine that takes you twenty minutes to remove from the utility room because it’s so heavy, you aren’t being efficient with your cleaning time. Cordless vacuums like the ones at have now made hoovering so much easier. They are ergonomically exceptional so you can whizz around your home, hoover multiple surfaces and get into the toughest of nooks and crannies.

If you head over to a site like, you will see a review of the latest Twist and Shout Spin Mop. This bit of kit allows you to get rid of the toughest grease stains and caked on food particles on your kitchen floor without having to get down on your hands and knees to scrub. Being able to cut down on your cleaning time will help you get quicker at your household chores and even enjoy them.

Room By Room

Don’t ever head into a room to start cleaning, to then get waylaid with other tasks. The only thing worse than an unclean room is multiple half cleaned rooms. Set yourself a task of cleaning one room at a time. Only when you have completed a room should you make yourself a cup of tea. This way, you won’t lose momentum, and you can see the progress you are making.

Cleaning isn’t the most exciting job in the world, yet everyone has to do it. Unless you have bottomless pockets, it will be down to you to ensure that your home is clean, tidy and fit for purpose so try your hand at a spot of speed cleaning.
