Making A Cleaning Schedule For Your Sanity

There is no question that many of us feel that it is difficult to find the time to keep our homes as clean as we want them. The work can easily stack up and soon it seems you will never be able to catch up on all that cleaning. Maintaining a regular cleaning schedule can be very simple and make your life much less stressful and much, well, cleaner!

If you decided one day to clean the house, there is little question that you will feel overwhelmed as you go from room to room realizing all that needs to be done. Dividing up the work throughout the week is the best way I have found to keep it from becoming a stressful job that is too much to handle.

First of all, get into the mindset that the entire house will not be completely spotless all at the same time, but everything will be cleaned every week. This means it will all be maintained regularly and will not get over dirty, but you may have to give up your visions of having a sparkling home every Saturday. It is well worth the sanity, though!

The first step in creating a cleaning schedule is to make a list of jobs to be done. This should include daily and weekly as well as monthly chores. Now take a look at your week. Determine which days you can handle a little extra cleaning and which need to be light days.

If Tuesdays and Thursdays are your light days, those might be good days to schedule things like extra tidying. On each of these days have a room or two of the house to focus on. Besides your regular daily tidying, on Tuesday also go through papers and take care of any piles or clutter that may be accumulating in the living areas. On Thursday do a little extra or take care of projects in the office or playroom.

On your heavier cleaning days you might make one day, let’s say Monday, for Kitchen cleaning. This can include scrubbing of the sink and a quick wipe down of cupboards, walls and appliances. Maybe the first Monday of each month you can choose a project such as cleaning out a cupboard or scrubbing down the inside of the refrigerator and discarding unneeded food.

You might make Wednesday the day for bathrooms. You will scrub down sink, counters, toilet and bath or shower. Also every other week you might wash the floor mats. This is a good day for changing towels, too.

Of course there are other jobs such as vacuuming and laundry to think about. Determine how often you need to do these and assign them each to a day.

If you thoughtfully prepare and stick to a cleaning schedule (making necessary adjustments as you go) you will have a clean house all week long with only an hour or so of cleaning each day. What a relief!
