What A Cleaner Could Do For Your Home In Just Two Hours

While two hours might not sound like a lot of time to clean a home, you’d be surprised at just how much a professional cleaner can accomplish in that timeframe, and having a regular cleaner for just two hours a day, could help you keep a cleaner, tidier, more welcoming home.

That said, there are a couple of factors that can impact how much a cleaner can get done in such short space of time, such as the following:

The size of your home

If your home is big and has a large number of rooms, even the most hardworking, expert cleaner can’t be expected to get the whole place clean in just two hours.

How experienced the cleaner is

A cleaner who has been working in the industry for some time, will almost certainly be able to do the job more efficiently than an inexperienced cleaner.

The number of obstacles

Naturally, the less things that get in the cleaner’s way (from pets and children to furniture and clutter), the quicker they will be able to work their magic on your home.

Whether the cleaner understands their instructions

Only when you clearly communicate to your cleaner what tasks you wish them to undertake during that two hours, will they ever be able to accomplish them effectively.

The state of your home

A home that’s dirty and in need of a deep clean, will not be spotless in just two hours.

What cleaning tasks can be successfully accomplished in two hours?

All of the following tasks are absolutely possible to achieve during two hours, in a regular sized home with regular house cleaning needs:

  • Vacuuming – even when done thoroughly i.e. from corner to corner of every room, this task shouldn’t take much longer than 15-20 minutes
  • Mopping – for a standard home, mopping after vacuuming should take around 20 minutes, depending on how many floors aren’t carpeted
  • Dusting – while dusting is a simple task, a good cleaner will pay attention to all areas where dust may be lurking, such as under and behind furniture, on ceiling fans, headboards and wall hangings.
  • Bathroom cleaning – depending on the size and state of your bathroom, getting the space hygienically clean shouldn’t take too much longer than 20 minutes. Focus areas in a regular clean should be the tub, shower, sink, toilet and vanity.
  • Kitchen cleaning – for a deep clean, a kitchen can be cleaned in around an hour, but for regular cleaning of surfaces and countertops, stove and sink, this can be carried out in less than 30 minutes.

Each cleaner will work to their own speed and factors such as those mentioned at the top of the article, will impact how much cleaning a professional service can accomplish within two hours. In general, though, a great deal can be cleaned in just two hours, and many of us can afford to pay a cleaning service for that short amount of time.
