Trying to manage a household is difficult. There are so many unexpected tasks to keep up with when you’re trying to keep your home clean! When you add that to your already large list of daily to-dos, it can feel unmanageable.
That’s why creating a daily house cleaning schedule is the best way to make sure your household chores get done each day. Keep reading to learn how!
Create a Master List
The first thing you need to do is write down all of the cleaning tasks your home requires. Don’t leave anything out here. Include everything from washing the dishes to changing and cleaning your air filters.
Once you have all of your individual tasks written down, divide them up into time-based tasks. Washing the dishes should get done daily, deep cleaning the bathroom should be done weekly, and scrubbing the floorboards may be a monthly task for your home.
You should have a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly breakdown of the tasks that need to be done around your home.
Write Down Your Daily Schedule
Once you have your list, get your daily schedule ready. What things already occupy most of your time during the day? Fill in your work schedule plus any other daily tasks you get done, like taking your kids to soccer games and your weekly hair appointment.
To know how much time you have each day to devote to keeping your home tidy, you should keep a daily routine. Making a cleaning schedule won’t work if you don’t know your schedule for everything else!
Pick a Cleaning Plan
Every home and every housekeeper are different. The way that you work and clean best is not the same way someone else does. But that’s okay because every cleaning style can be incorporated into a daily cleaning schedule.
Whether you’re a daily speed cleaner or someone who needs to get all their cleaning out of the way at once, there are systems you can put in place to make your time spent cleaning more efficient.
If you like to pick up a little each day, add 30 minutes to your schedule to speed around your house and put things in order. Then, write down the time for your daily housekeeping tasks. After that, add one or two weekly tasks to your list.
If you’d rather clean one room each day, pick a day of the week to work with each room. Then, build your schedule around that! Don’t forget to add your yearly clean-up tasks as well.
