Weekly Cleaning Schedule To Keep Your Home Clean

Cleaning is one of those chores that you put off every day, telling yourself that you'll get to it later. Then before you know it, you're left with a giant pile of laundry and no clothes to wear, a pile of dishes and no clean silverware, or so much dust on your furniture you can write your name in it. To help you keep up with the cleaning, you can make yourself a schedule or you can hire a professional cleaning company instead and save you a lot of time. If you're up to trying a schedule, read on for a helpful list.


Start with a load of laundry. While it's in the washing machine, start dusting. Move from one room at a time. If you have a larger home, dust only the rooms on your main floor and leave the rest for another day. Dust everything on the main floor including all knick-knacks and furniture. Once you're finished dusting—or while in the middle of dusting—move your clothes to the dryer and fold them when finished and put them away.


Put in a load of laundry. Clean your entire kitchen while the clothes are getting clean. Wash all of your dishes, dry them, and put them away. If you have a dishwasher, load the dishwasher and put them away when the cycle finishes. Wipe down your kitchen including all of the counters and cabinets. Wipe down chairs and table legs, which can get dirty, as well. Clean out the refrigerator and go through all of your food to toss out anything that is expired. Finish the load of laundry, fold the clothes, and put them away.


If you have any laundry left, put in another load. Vacuum your entire home and dust the upper floor of your house if you haven't done so already. Use the vacuum attachment to vacuum furniture and to get into the corners of your home. Finish the laundry load.


Wash a load of laundry completely. Move to the bathrooms and clean them entirely. Wipe down sinks and counters, wipe down mirrors, and clean toilets. Then clean the tub/shower thoroughly. If you have more than one bathroom, repeat in the other bathroom.


Put in another load of laundry and complete the load. If you have hardwood floors in your home, today is the day to wash those floors. Use floor cleaner to clean the floors either with a mop or by hand. Allow the floors to dry before you walk on them.

Having a weekly cleaning schedule helps you break down the tasks, making them seem a little easier to complete. If you still don't have the time to complete these cleaning tasks, hire a professional cleaning company to help you get this work done.
