Although cleaning the house is not something most people look forward to, it is an essential task to be done. However, it doesn't have to be as dreaded a chore if you knew the quicker and easier way to get the house cleaned. Today we're here to guide you on how to clean the 4 main rooms of the house—the bathroombedroom, kitchen and living room in less than 30 minutes. Once you've used these techniques a few times, it will come naturally to you and there won't be any cause for panic or alarm when you know you have guests arriving in an hour and the house is in a mess as you know you'll have plenty of time to clean the house and be prepared for your guests. 

Basically you need to focus on the main rooms of the house and stick to a few essential chores like vacuuming and organizing things. Another thing is to make sure you have all the things you need for cleaning the house in one place so that you don't have to waste time looking for things when you want to clean the house. This just adds to the frustration and doesn't make cleaning tasks very smooth and convenient. We hope the tips here will help you have a cleaner home with less stress involved in cleaning it. 

1. Start with the bathroom

The bathroom should always be the first room to get started with when cleaning the house. You wouldn't want guests to use a dirty toilet, it would just be embarrassing. The first thing do is to quickly vacuum the bathroom in order to remove hair and dust from the floor. Then give it a quick scrubbing and spray all surfaces with soap and stain removers or bleach and leave it while you work on other rooms of the house. When you're back to cleaning the bathroom after you're done with the other parts of the house, the stains in your bathroom will come off much easier and it will require less scrubbing, so this way the bathroom is quicker and easier to clean. 

2. Finish with the bathroom

Once you've cleaned the rest of the house, wipe down the bathroom mirror and then scrub the sink, toilet and bathtub. Lastly, organize all the toiletries and bathroom accessories so that everything looks neat and tidy. For more ideas, take a look at our article titled 7 easy ideas to clean your bathroom.

3. The bedroom

An easy way to maintain a tidy bedroom is to practice the habit of making your bed everyday. This small step can make a world of difference in the appeal of your bedroom. Another thing you can do is to make sure that there are no clothes lying around, by either putting them back in the closet or in a laundry basket immediately. When guests are coming over, they are probably not going to spend much time in your bedroom, but just have it looking neat so the whole house looks and feels clean. Dirty coffee cups and the bin should also be cleared regularly. For more deep cleaning ideas for the bathroom, check out how to clean your mattress yourself.

The first thing you need to do in order for your kitchen to look clean is to wash all the dishes and put them away neatly. Spraying the kitchen with an air freshener also helps to give an impression of a clean kitchen. Also make sure to wipe all the kitchen work areas, countertops and tables clean so that they are not stained with food or greasy. 

5. Mop the kitchen floor

The kitchen floor tends to get the dirtiest and the greasiest so it's best to just do a quick mopping of the kitchen floor to have it looking clean and sparkly. Finally, put lemon peel or coffee grounds into the rubbish bin in the kitchen so it doesn't stink. For more kitchen cleaning tips, have a look at how do I clean and maintain my kitchen equipment
