Center, Vacuum and Out

After circling the room and working top-to-bottom, dust or clean any freestanding furniture in the center. Vacuum the floor from the room’s furthest corner to the door and then take the cleaner out of the room. Empty and replace the wastebasket. As a finishing touch, spray room freshener as you exit to leave the room smelling sweet.
