Some people know exactly what to do when it comes to house cleaning. Others aren’t so lucky. Some of us would have much cleaner houses if we had a house-cleaning schedule. The tips below will help you create a customized house-cleaning schedule that will work for you.
Having a house-cleaning schedule can really make a difference. Instead of aimlessly cleaning, you have a plan. A plan that is organized. That is setup to get things done when they need to be. When you don’t have an organized plan, you miss things. Some things may end up being cleaned more than they need to be.
Having a schedule is also a good way to delegate chores to the “honey do” list or to your children.
Each person is different. Most people would not have the same goals or would setup the same schedule. People have different ideas of what is clean and how clean things need to be.
Creating a house-cleaning schedule is a process. You need to evaluate each room in your house. What needs to be done and how often. It will take some time and effort to put it together, but it will be well worth it when you are done.
When you create your schedule, I suggest you do it either in a word-processing software or in a spreadsheet. You will be able to move things around and edit them easier. You’ll be able to insert lines and delete them. It’s much more difficult to do this on paper.
You will need to evaluate every room in your house. You’ll need to prioritize them. When you have the rooms in your house prioritized, the most important room will be at the top of the list when you are finished. Make the most important room in the house number one. Make the second most important room number 2 and so on.
It may be difficult to put one room as more important than the other. Some will be easy to put at the bottom of the list. Like the basement and attic. Rooms like the bathroom and the kitchen will be closer to the top of the list. You may have multiple bathrooms where one bathroom is more important because it’s the bathroom that guests use.
Next, evaluate each room and what cleaning needs to be done in the room. List each of the things that needs to be done on separate lines in the spreadsheet or word processor.
You can make this specific or more general. Whatever works for you. In the bathroom, you might list out: toilet, bathtub, shower, floor, sink & countertop, medicine cabinet, vanity, walls, baseboards, empty garbage. You can get more detailed than this if you like.
To the right of each task, or in the next column, Castle Cleaners – House Cleaning Services in Manvel TX indicate how often the item needs to be cleaned. It can be daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, two times a year, two times a day, etc.
When you have a big area, like the attic, you should break it down into smaller areas or tasks. Maybe one corner at a time. If you split them out this way, it will be much easier for you in the long run. It will be more manageable and you will be more likely to get it done.
Now you can make your lists. Group all of the tasks that are daily, weekly, monthly, etc. If you order the list in order of room priority, then your list will have the most important items on top. The items at the bottom of the list will be the least important. That way you can start at the top of your list. If you don’t make it to the bottom, they weren’t as important anyhow.
You can schedule your monthly tasks by the week in the month. This will break them up so you aren’t doing them all at one time. There will be some balance. The weekly items you may want to assign different days. Like every Tuesday you take out the garbage.
As you work with your schedule, you will probably need to move things around. That’s OK. Do what you need to do to get the job done. You may find things are going great, then something changes in your life and you need to change your schedule. Go for it.
