Three ways to set the scene for an effective cleaning session

Let’s say you’re suddenly struck with the motivation to clean your house from top to bottom – just where do you start? While you might think that it’s best to first arm yourself with all the supplies you need, in actual fact it can be more beneficial to work on setting the scene. This should ensure that you’re ready and raring to go, with nothing to stand in your way of doing a great job! With this in mind, let’s look at three ways you can set the scene for an effective cleaning session.


Music has been found to increase productivity. A 1994 study outlined that surgeons worked faster and with more precision when working with music in the background – and the same can happen when you’re cleaning. The right soundtrack can improve your performance and help you to get into a good rhythm as you tackle a whole manner of unclean areas in your home. For best results, try songs that are positive and fast paced!

TV off

It can feel like you’re killing two birds with one stone if you clean while watching television. Unfortunately, you’re less likely to do a decent job if you’ve got one eye on your favourite show at the same time. Cleaning does, indeed, require a great deal of time and attention to do properly. If you can’t give it your all then you will probably find that the end result is less than satisfactory.


Does it really matter what clothing you clean in? Well, yes actually. Loose fitting attire will make you more nimble, in the process allowing greater agility as you do things like hoover the stairs and tidy under the bed. In addition, your attire should be old and of no real value to you. This way you won’t have to change when it comes to using the likes of bleach in the bathroom.

Good luck!

These cleaning tips should ensure that it won’t be long until your home is looking pristine. If for any reason you’d rather just leave the job to the professionals, then you can always do this by getting in touch with the team at VA Cleaning.
