Here is a question we addressed on this show:
I work 1 full-time & 1 part-time job, so I don’t have much time to spend cleaning. I normally clean all day on my day off – I’d like to be able to space things out a little better, so I don’t have to spend all day cleaning. I don’t really have a routine other than I do dishes every day and laundry & vacuum every other day. On my day off, I clean the house top to bottom until I’m exhausted & I usually miss some things and have to put them off until the following week. Can you tell me your daily/weekly/monthly cleaning routine? What is really important to get done right away, and what can be put off a little longer? Any websites or suggestions you may have are greatly appreciated.
Not everyone likes to clean, but everyone loves a clean home. The key is maintenance, so things don’t get out of control. By creating good cleaning habits, your home will be a neat and tidy nest where you can relax and enjoy the company.
Creating a cleaning schedule can be tough to do. How often do cleaning tasks need to be performed? How long does a particular job take? What chores are considered daily, weekly, monthly, or seasonal tasks?
The truth is that no one schedule will work perfectly for the same two people. If your home has small children, you may find that weekly tasks must be performed daily to prevent falling behind. If you live alone, some daily tasks may only be done weekly. Allergy sufferers and people with breathing issues may need to perform certain tasks more frequently. Use the following guidelines to develop your own daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal cleaning schedule.
Daily cleaning chores are the absolute minimum that must be done daily to keep a home clean. Depending on your household type, some of these chores may even need to be done more than once during the day. These are the basics. There may be days when other circumstances prevent me from getting much more done, but as long as I can accomplish these few things, clutter is kept at bay, and my home looks tidy.
