We can all agree that a clean living environment promotes a
calmer, happier, and less stressful living situation. When you are able to
relax in the comfort of your own home without clutter and mess, your focus can
be on relaxation, rejuvenation, and spending quality time with loved ones. But,
how does one achieve such a lofty goal? To boast a perpetually clean house, one
must take frequent and planned actions; a cleaning plan to follow!


Creating a schedule of cleaning tasks can be confusing; the
frequency and duration of each task is not the same and rarely aligns to create
one stream-lines cleaning plan. The truth is that no one schedule will work
perfectly; many factors must be considered. The size of your home, pets,
children, budget, and time schedule will influence your personal cleaning
schedule. Consider using this framework for creating your cleaning plan: divide
and compartmentalize the tasks into seasons, months, weeks, and those tasks
that need to be completed daily. 



Seasonal chores can be some of the most important, but also the
most forgotten parts of your cleaning schedule. These are the tasks that only
need your attention two to three times per year, but are considered vital to
maintain the cleanliness of your home. They generally coincide with removing or
changing of decorations (holidays, etc.) and they also are sparked by
entertainment/hosting opportunities (annual birthday parties, family reunions,
etc.) Spring is a perfect time to start season chore habits; a time to purge, collect,
and host a yard sale! 

  • Clean out closets
  • Wash pillows and stuffed toys
  • Clean out toy bins
  • Vacuum Mattresses
  • Vacuum Window Screens
  • Run a carpet cleaner on all rugs
    and carpets
  • Gutters, FIreplaces, Chimneys
  • Apply tile and grout cleaner in


These chores are important to maintain a clean house, but are
tasks that are acceptable to ignore during a busy work week. Often, these
chores require more in-depth time commitment and, depending on your work
schedule, require a ‘weekend’ time slot to complete.

  • Dust blinds and vacuum curtains
  • Wash windows
  • Wipe Cupboards (inside and out)
  • Wash trash cans
  • Straighten shoes and dresser
  • Clean mirrors & dust pictures
  • Change filters on heating/AC units
  • Wash handrails and doors 



Although most of these chores don’t require daily work, they are
still some of the most important tasks that need to be completed on a weekly
cycle. Many choose to divide weekly chores into designated days so that the
work doesn’t build up and consume an entire chunk of one day to complete.
Others like to schedule one night a week that is dedicated to completing all
weekly chores.

  • Clean out fridge; wipe up spills,
    throw out old food
  • Scrub and shine sink and other
  • Vacuum rugs and carpets
  • Mop all hard surfaces
  • Change sheets on beds
  • Scrub toilet and bathtub



The absolute minimum that must be accomplished in order to keep
your house in working order. Depending on your household, these duties might
even need to be done more than once a day.

  • Wash Dishes
  • Clear and Wipe Table
  • Wipe Countertops, Stove, and Sink
  • Take out Trash
  • Spray Shower with Daily Shower
  • Make Beds
  • Sort Mail
  • Straighten End Tables and other
    flat surfaces
  • Take Care of Clutter
