This is a really great book on cleaning and how to do it quickly. It lays out a system for cleaning and all the tools you will need. Unfortunatly I don't know if the system works because I never got around to putting it into action. There are a lot of common sense type suggestions in the book like cleaning top to bottom, things I think we over look sometimes. These people mean business when it comes to cleaning.
This book is not about cleaning faster. Its about cleaning smarter. It teaches you to conserve your motions to get more done with less effort. Mr Campbell teaches you not to retrace your steps and motions. Do it once. Do it right. This use of ergonomics results in a quicker job. Of course, there is nothing stopping one from making a game of it to see how much time you can cut off your cleaning chores each time you do them. I think that with repetition of prescribed motions one can do things more efficiently. I will never part with my copy of this book. Its too much of a treasure.
I think this book may also save us money. Some of us who think they need to pay someone to clean for them, may find they can do it themselves. Also, Mr Campbell suggests using only one or two cleaners to do practically all cleaning jobs. Less definitely is more.
If, like me, you feel like you're always cleaning and your house never looks clean, and hiring someone to clean it isn't an option, maybe it's time for a new idea: hire yourself. This book is written by a team of professional housecleaners who have a system down-pat. Instead of running from room to room, you methodically clean the same way, every time, as though you were cleaning your own house the way a professional would. Why didn't I think of that! FANTASTIC ideas. Stop at the store and buy a couple of things to organize your cleaning supplies, and go to it!
20 years ago, I learned a few cleaning techniques from this book that I use to this day. Also, this book transformed my self-concept from a toiling drudge to a "cleaning professional." Any book that builds my self-respect is terrific, IMHO.
