Introduction…Where Do You Start?

iStock_000009150880XSmallDoes this sound familiar?

After working all week you’ve finally put aside some time and mustered up the energy to clean your house.

Maybe the dirt has been piling up for weeks, things are just getting too cluttered and you can’t ignore the mess any longer.

Or maybe you’ve got company coming over and you’re frantically trying to make things look decent in time for dinner.

Either way, you’ve decided to roll up your sleeves and get cleaning.

But where do you start?

The approach most people take (and the one I used to take before I ran my own home cleaning business), was to just pick a random room and start some kind of cleaning task.

Maybe you would start by collecting items that need to be thrown out, or vacuuming the carpet or maybe wiping down counter tops.

While all of these tasks are important, this method usually leads to distraction and “multi-tasking paralysis” as you continually discover new things that pull you away from the task at hand.

Cleaning and editing, or organizing, are two different tasks and it’s helpful to keep them separate.

Sometimes just thinking about cleaning a few rooms in your house, let alone the whole house, can seem like major undertaking.

But it doesn’t have to be.

Yes cleaning your home will take some effort.

But if you’re organized about it and have a few simple strategies in place, you can drastically reduce the time and effort required to make your house look truly remarkable.

Having a clean home is one of the easiest ways to immediately improve your day-to-day quality of life.

Not only does everything look great and smell great, but you also become more organized, productive and stress free.

Your home, condo, or chalet is probably the biggest financial investment you’ll ever make so why not maximize the enjoyment you get out of it?

But most importantly, a clean home is a cozier and healthier environment for your family members and pets.

So how do you achieve this level of enjoyment?
