Creating a Custom Cleaning Schedule for Busy Lifestyles

Written by Jimmy Rustling

Keeping your home clean and tidy is essential to provide a sanitary space for residents and visitors. It can also help make for a good first impression and improve your mental health. But if you have a busy schedule, finding the time to make things spick and span is difficult.

Keep reading to learn how to create a cleaning schedule you can fit into your jam-packed schedule.

Prioritise tasks

Some chores are more important than others – for example, doing dirty dishes or laundry versus dusting the skirting boards. Make a list of your must-do tasks as well as the other cleaning chores you would like to complete and rank them in order.

Even if you don’t have much time to clean, this should give you a basic schedule that will ensure you get the essential chores done first.

Focus on high traffic areas

Just as there are high priority chores, some parts of your home will need more frequent and more rigorous cleaning than others, such as the kitchen and living spaces.

Again, make a list of these spaces, and put them front and centre in your cleaning schedule. This will also save you time cleaning spaces you don’t use much, like guest bedrooms, too often.

Determine how frequently you need to clean

Cleaning your entire house from top to bottom every week might be a waste of time. Some areas will not need such regular, thorough cleaning, or your property might not get that dirty.

Make a list of all the chores you need to complete and put each one into the following categories: daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly.

This will ensure you can stay organised with your cleaning all your round, and always get your most important chores done.

Find your cleaning style

While some like to blitz their home in one day, others with less time need to stagger their cleaning to ensure they stay motivated and on top of their chores. Short, timed sessions can help you stay focused on specific tasks, as can assigning each room to a different day.

Try out your schedule

Once you have put your new routine into practice, reflect on whether you are happy with the cleanliness of your property and how much you are completing on your schedule. If not, make amendments where necessary, such as devoting more time to a specific chore.

For tougher cleaning tasks that require specialist help, such as mould removal, you should always bring in professional cleaners, like ICE Cleaning’s technicians.
