Although it’s always a good idea to inquire about the services that a cleaning service offers, most of them will have helpful timesaving tips that they will be happy to share with you including the following:

First and foremost, smart house cleaning really starts before you ever pick up a dust cloth, sponge, mop, or vacuum cleaner.  If you switch over from the traditional tallow-based soaps to those that are glycerin- or vegetable oil-based, you’ll find that you will have less scum to clean up.  Consequently, you’ll keep the bathroom floor, shower or tub, and walls shining longer. This will help you save more on a regular basis.


Clean seldom-used rooms every other time.  Those rooms that aren’t used that often don’t have to be cleaned every week.  So, it’s okay for you do them every other week or once every three weeks. It is important that you discuss your specific needs with the cleaners.


Get into the squeegee habit with showers or tubs, tile, and walls.  It doesn’t matter how many people you ask, you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who can honestly say that they don’t mind doing these bathroom areas.  Get everyone in the house to start using a squeegee on these areas.


Shake everything onto the carpeting and flooring.  The natural progression of house cleaning tasks is to clean from highest to lowest point.  In other words, clean your home from top to bottom.  Mopping and vacuuming should be the last tasks performed when in your house cleaning regimen.


Start with the easy tasks and work your way up to the more difficult ones.  The most common house cleaning mistake that people make is that they assume the job will get easier as they progress.  WRONG!  Work on the low-traffic areas in the home first.  They’ll get done quicker and easier while at the same time motivating you to attack the more detailed tasks.


Table your smartphone when cleaning.  The best way to get sidetracked from the job at hand is to carry your smartphone around with you while cleaning the house.  Leave the phone on your desk (or wherever) and turn it off.  Furthermore, shut down your PC and turn the TV off as well.  If you have any detailed projects planned, put them on the back burner for now so you can stay focused on what you need to do.

And if you don’t want to do it all yourself, call in the professional cleaners. If you would like more information about the cleaning services or to book an appointment with our company, visit (Bebe’s Cleaning Services website).  Or if you prefer, feel free to call us at (508) 383-3004.
