To some, cleaning occurs when the dust bunnies are overly visible or the clutter has become very noticeable. But to many, setting up a schedule and being proactive in your cleaning regimen is more to their liking. This method allows the home to be cleaned throughout without waiting until it is too late.
The simplest way to keep your home reliably clean? Stick to a schedule. It’s not as daunting as it sounds.
The trick lies in creating a realistic schedule that truly works for you and your home.
Stay on track with my 4 week cleaning schedule Here.
step1: Get Ready
First things first. You’ll need to get a concrete idea of exactly what must happen for you to have a nice, clean home. Grab a writing instrument and a clipboard. Get ready to walk through your space, room by room, taking realistic inventory of the areas and tasks that will make up your schedule.
Clean with What You Have
Having the cleaning supplies and tools you need on hand will help cleaning go faster. And you may have some of the necessities already in your house. Watch and see!
Step 2: Choose Your Rooms
List all the rooms and areas in your home that need regular cleanings, including hallways, stairways, and entryways. Leave areas that you don’t often use, such as the storage room or guest room, off your regular cleaning schedule. Work them in seasonally, or as needed.
Step 3: Identify Tasks
Visit each room on your schedule, one by one. Look around. List all the cleaning tasks you need to perform regularly. Order items from top to bottom—ceiling to floors—the same order in which you’ll clean.
Step 4: Select Frequency
Decide how often you want to clean each room. Most spaces probably need a weekly or biweekly cleaning, but do consider your lifestyle. If your family is away from home most weekdays, for example, you might not need to clean as often as someone who stays home with small children. You might also find that public spaces, such as the Kitchen and guest bathroom, need cleaning more often than private spaces, such as bedrooms.
Step 5: Identify Your Cleaning Style
Now that you’ve identified both cleaning tasks and frequency, it’s time to decide how to clean.
Try one of the following three options:
1. One (or Two) and Done
Clean everything in one day. Or, if one very long block of cleaning feels like too much, split your list in half and tackle it over two days.
2. Timed Sessions
Decide which days you’ll clean and for how long, such as 30 minutes. Then, set a timer, and start at the top of your list. Clean until the timer dings. On your next scheduled cleaning day, pick up where you left off. Repeat.
3. A Room (or Two) a Day
Decide how many days you’ll clean. Then, assign specific areas to specific days. For example: Monday: Kitchen, entry, and laundry room; Tuesday: Living roomand Dining room; Wednesday: bathrooms; and Thursday: hallway and bedrooms.
Step 6: Practice Your Schedule
Schedule and start your first month’s cleanings. Consider it a trial run. To avoid overwhelming yourself, limit time spent in each room, simply picking up where you left off next time. Keep in mind that it will get easier. Like anything, it takes practice before a new home-cleaning schedule functions smoothly.
Make It a Habit
Setting these cleaning habits actually enhance your whole-home cleaning schedule.
