I believe, and I think Jeff Campbell and the Clean Team would agree, that most people have no conception of how long individual cleaning tasks actually take them. Our last thorough cleaning of the bathroom, for example, may only have taken an hour, yet we may recall this one hour as two or even three. Cleaning already feels like an endless cycle, so why do we waste additional time cleaning things inefficiently? In Speed Cleaning, the Clean Team arms the reader with the necessary equipment and methods to complete a weekly cleaning of the entire house with a minimum of time and effort. Following the book's instruction, you have all the tools and solutions you need at your fingertips and work methodically around a room, never cleaning the same place twice. There's no wiping down the whole mirror for one set of fingerprints, no spraying and wiping repeatedly when your cleaning solution isn't powerful enough and no vacuuming or mopping before you're done stirring up dirt and dust from above. We learn many of these things on our own over time, but this team has their routine down to a science and they're here to share! Even the very efficient housekeeper can shave a few minutes off here and there by keeping in mind their set of rules ('trade secrets'), lists of materials to have ready for each type of room, and schedule of tasks to complete (in order) for the most efficient cleaning of each room. Near the end of the book, they've compiled a set of alternatives to the cleansers and materials used, as well as some insight into how to choose and what to expect from an outside cleaning service.

What an exceptional little book. I have bought many copies and given them as gifts. It works, it absolutely works.

This book has lots of good advice and how to be much more efficient when cleaning. It suggests good tools and what tools you would need. I was a little disappointed because half of the book is in Spanish. I did not understand before I purchased it that it was written more for team cleaning and running a cleaning business. I was just looking for some ideas of how to do regular cleaning quicker. I did get quite a few helpful hints.
