FlyLady Emergency Cleaning
If you need your house to be company-ready soon, FlyLady’s Crisis Cleaning plan can help.
Emergency Cleaning can help you get your home more presentable for guests, but it’s going to take a lot of effort.
If you’re looking for a more sustainable way to get your house clean and keep it that way, you should start with FlyLady’s regular system.
Focus on What Company Will See
If you’re going to emergency clean for guests, think about where they’ll be in your house.
Likely they won’t be in your laundry room, or rummaging through your kitchen cabinets.
They’ll be in the common spaces.
So, as you emergency clean, focus on these areas:
- Bathroom (the one guests will use)
- Living area (where you’ll sit)
- Entry to your home
Plan it Out
In FlyLady’s Crisis Cleaning, she recommends working on your guest areas in 15-minute increments.
So, you might spend 15 minutes cleaning in the kitchen, 15 minutes in your living room, and then 15 minutes in the bathroom.
Then take a 15 minute break.
After 45 minutes, assess the situation. You can probably stop at this point!
But if you have the time, and want to work more, continue.
After you break, get back at it.
Spend another 15 minutes in the kitchen, then 15 minutes in the living room, and so on.
You can change the order of the rooms up so you spend more time in the areas that need the most work.
