Keeping a clean house that’s spick and span 24/7 can be a daunting task. In this modern age we are busier than ever and finding the time to de-clutter, vacuum, sanitize, dust, and more just frankly isn’t easy. So this Cleaning Schedule might come in handy:
Perhaps the number one reason that the house cleaning tasks start to slip is simply due to getting a little behind on one day or a few days. It’s easy for your cleaning tasks to pile up and then what was just a few minutes of cleaning becomes a massive multi-day nightmare of a chore.
For this reason, it’s best to tackle cleaning a little bit at a time, so you never allow yourself to get overwhelmed.
To start, it can help to organize your cleaning tasks by how often you need to do them. The infographic guide above breaks tasks down by:
- Twice a Week
- Every Week
- Every 2 Weeks
You may find that some of these tasks don’t apply to you, or some of the cleaning areas may not need to be cleaned quite as often as the guide recommends. That’s perfectly fine! You must find a cleaning schedule and routine that works best for you.
You might also find it helpful to print the infographic and cross out tasks that don’t apply to you. Posting this chart around your kitchen or office can serve as a reminder so you stay on top of everything that needs to be cleaned.
If you still find your time strapped to the point you have a hard time getting most of these tasks completed, don’t worry. You’re not alone! If you do nothing else, just try to do the daily, twice a week, and weekly cleaning tasks. These are the areas most people are going to interact with in your home (including yourself) and the areas that people will really notice if they are dirty or not.
Let’s face it, if you don’t polish your hardwood floors, no one is probably going to notice or care. However, if you don’t clean your toilets and dust, people will notice!
So remember, stay organized, stay on top of your tasks, and stay clean!
