Your living room is probably one of the most challenging rooms you can clean in your home. There are a lot of surfaces to dust, decoration, electronics, books, and all sorts of furniture you need to cover. This also makes living room cleaning time-consuming – but what if I told you that there is a way to speed up the cleaning?
How To Speed Up Cleaning Your Living Room?
– Start off with decluttering
Before you start cleaning, you need to declutter – this is a rule you need to use for cleaning any room in our home, not just the living room. By doing this you will have a space that is prepared and free of any clutter.
For example, pick up any trash sitting on the coffee table, remove any toys that are probably sitting on the floor, place all items where they are supposed to be.
– Fix the couch
The sofa is one of the most important pieces of furniture in your living room. Make sure it looks good by folding any blankets that are on top of it. Fluff the pillows and the cushions.
If you have a leather sofa then wipe it with a damp cloth in order to remove the dust.
– Quickly dust all surfaces
Cover all chairs, the coffee table, the TV, any drawers, etc. Basically, make sure that all dust is completely removed.
Use a microfiber cloth because they pick up the dust easily and they do not spread it in the air. You can also dampen the cloth for even better results.
– Focus on the floors
If you have carpeted floors then make sure you vacuum them. Once you do that, sprinkle some baking soda all over the carpet and let it sit for a few hours (or overnight, if possible). The powder will soak up any bad odours and will freshen up the fabric. Then, vacuum up the baking soda.
If you have hardwood floors, then start with vacuuming them and continue with mopping.
And just like that, your living room is spotless. Of course, this is not deep cleaning, therefore, you can easily speed it up. If it’s time for deep cleaning then I do not recommend you try to speed up the process – take your time and focus on even the smallest details.
