Today we will cover step 2 of the process for cleaning a bathroom. To review in step 1 there are 2 actions. First, bring your supplies caddy, long duster, vacuum cleaner and apron, if not on, and place them just outside the door. Second, gather the trash can and rugs and place them just outside the door next to the supplies you put there.
Step 2 is long dusting. Again, simple enough but often poorly executed because no one has thought through the process to perform this task as fast as possible so it is rarely performed in a repeat home each visit. I am totally convinced that is why repeat clients do not remain repeat clients.
Whenever dusting is performed your starting point is at the door because that is where your long duster is. When you completed step 1 you were at the door so grab your long duster and start at the door.
Colored circles show you where to start and the route to follow. I have added colored lines and arrows to show you in show you in what direction to move your long duster. The round circle above number 1 shows you where to put the duster head, in the middle where the wall meets the ceiling by the door. You will always begin at this point, closest to the door. In a small bathroom you might not even need to take a step and still long dust the entire bath, just spin around, dust the full top first and then all the baseboards. If that is not possible, like this simulation bathroom you will dust everything on the top as far as you can reach to the left going around the corner. Before moving you will dust the bottom as far as you can reach moving to the right, again continuing around the corner. Now you can step to your next corner and you can go left or right. We are going to go right to circle 3. It is directly where you ended on the bottom so it is easy and quick to move. Follow the arrows and go to the corner and continue to the right to the middle of the wall and ceiling. Drop down to circle 4 and clean the baseboards, under the counter overhang and continue with baseboards until you reach the spot you completed when dusting circle 2. Go to the next corner and do the same thing until you have completed the bath room and are back at the door corner.
To review; Step 1-First, bring your supplies caddy, long duster, vacuum cleaner and apron, if not on, and place them just outside the door. Second, gather the trash can and rugs and place them just outside the door next to the supplies you put there.
Step 2 is long dusting.
See you tomorrow for step 3, vacuuming.
