How to make your home visitor-ready in half an hour- Black & Decker

It is great to hear news like this, where locals and tourists work together to keep the area clean. When it comes to our homes however, you mostly need to do most of the house cleaning by yourself. It may have happened even to the best housekeepers, that you hear about a friend or a business associate dropping in at short notice, and you need to get things looking squeaky clean in a short period of time. Here are some cleaning tips by which you can achieve a lot in just half an hour:

Identify the zones: The first task is to look around and figure out which areas are the ones causing the space to look cluttered or messy. One of the biggest culprits may be that coffee or center table which gathers magazines and newspapers that can turn into piles very soon.

Take 5 minutes at a time: Attack each problem area, taking not more than 5 minutes for each of them. You will be surprised once clutter like magazines is put away how much easier it is to identify what really needs to be done. The center table can look as good as new with just a good wipe once the paper clutter has been cleared up.
Quick dusting and vacuuming:For surfaces with a lot of dust, make sure to do a final wipe. Then, use a handheld vacuum cleaner and clean all the areas like sofas and blinds where dust may have got accumulated and cannot be cleaned by wiping. Try to fit in a quick carpet cleaning too if possible.

Final step – mop floors: This needs to be done at the very end so that any dust that might have fallen onto the floor while cleaning the other surfaces can now be taken care of. Using an apparatus such as steam mop can make this task a lot faster, as the entire floor can be cleaned in just a few effective swipes.

At Black and Decker, we can help you clean your home effectively using our tools such as the Orbit handheld vacuum cleaner and the Steam Mop. For more details, please visit our website:

  3. I am so glad to come by your post, it is very interesting topic. Doing regular maintenance on your carpets can keep them cleaner longer, and make steam cleaning necessary less often.
