Limit the amount of time to around 15 minutes per room, and stick to the cleaning schedule. Work on the most-important tasks in the room first, and then take care of the details if time permits. Clean around the room by picking up and dusting first, and then vacuum, sweep or mop the room beginning at the farthest point from the door.

Place decorative bowls or baskets in each shared living space, such as living rooms and family rooms, to store small items. If children live in the home, add a large decorative basket in each living space to hold baby supplies and toys. Baskets provide additional storage and significantly reduce the amount of time spent carrying the items from room to room.

To clean the home quickly, enlist the help of others living in the home by creating a chore list. Post the list in a shared space in the home to ensure everyone knows which task to complete for the day. After cleaning, check the cleaning supplies and add any necessary cleaners to the shopping list. Wash any dirty microfiber cloths, and return them to the cleaning caddy for later use.
