Does the thought of cleaning your house daily seem totally overwhelming? If so, you’re not alone. There aren’t many people out there that actually enjoy cleaning their house, but it’s an important part of getting rid of the germs and keeping you healthy. This Daily Cleaning Schedule breaks down daily tasks and makes it more manageable.
If you work on cleaning your house little by little, before you know it, the whole thing is going to be clean. And one day, you will wake up and realize that now all you have to do is maintenance cleaning and spot check cleaning. It’s a beautiful feeling to have!
What Cleaning Should Be Completed Daily?
People tend to think that to clean an area, it has to be all-or-nothing, but that just isn’t the truth. There are certain areas of your home that you’ll have to pick up or clean daily but they usually don’t take a ton of time or effort.
Sweeping your floors, cleaning the kitchen and spot-checking the other rooms of your home for laundry, etc. can all be things that are done each and every day.
Don’t forget to enlist the help of the kids when they’re home as well. I add their responsibilities to my free printable chore chart.
How To Establish A Cleaning Routine?
Getting into a cleaning routine takes a little bit of motivation and a schedule, just like the one we’re providing below! As long as you can write out what needs to be cleaned, you can hold your family accountable to make it happen. It’s amazing that writing down your tasks is such a powerful tool.
You’ll find that once you start cleaning areas of your home on a consistent basis, it becomes easier and turns into a routine, almost overnight. And you just might find that cleaning is a great way to de-stress, too! I love the feeling of walking into my kitchen and actually SEEING the countertops. 😁
How Can I Clean My House In 20 Minutes?
This is one of the best things about making out a daily cleaning checklist. You can easily clean your house in 20 minutes by just following the checklist. The reason that so many people don’t clean their house as frequently as they should is because they think of it like it’s an all-day event. And who has time for that, right?
But, if you do just a little bit daily, it makes all the difference in the world.
