How to Create a Cleaning and Organizing Schedule: Tips for a Stress-Free Routine

How to Create a Cleaning and Organizing Schedule: Tips for a Stress-Free Routine
By: Brittany Satterfield

While it is not always fun or enjoyable, cleaning is a must-do. Some tasks like washing dishes, cleaning the kitchen countertops, laundry, vacuuming and mopping floors need to be done daily or every other day. In addition to that, a home needs a deep cleaning at least every month.

Staying On Top Of It

Staying on top of house cleaning can be overwhelming. This is especially the case if there are other obligations like work or taking care of little ones. It is also that much harder if there are challenges like medical conditions or taking care of a person in the household who has them.

The key is to be organized. Different approaches can be taken to this. They include:

  • Dividing the house into zones. With this plan, daily chores are done in common areas like the kitchen, living and dining room and deeper cleaning is done in selected zones. For instance, deeper cleaning can be allocated over three or more days before moving on to the next zone. The goal is to cover every space in the house every month.
  • Allocating cleaning jobs on different days depending on availability. For instance, Monday could be for the living room with different parts of it being covered in addition to daily tasks like tidying up, vacuuming and mopping. One Monday could be spent cleaning out the TV/media unit and other storage spaces and surfaces. The next one could be spent cleaning the couch or removing the carpet to clean under it. The idea is to have gone through the whole room by the end of the month. Other days could be spent working on other rooms.
  • Completely daily tasks and doing a more thorough clean on weekends and a deep clean once a month. This works for smaller houses or one with just one person or a couple.

Creating A Cleaning And Organizing Schedule

The way you choose to go with your cleaning schedule will depend on a number of factors. Taking them into consideration will ensure that you create one that is realistic and stress-free. They are:

How much time you can dedicate to cleaning every day, week and month

If you work full-time, you may only have time for house chores after work. Aim to take care of dishes and cleaning kitchen counters daily along with vacuuming or mopping. Then, do some work on the room you have allocated for the day or the week. On weekends, do your weekly chores for the whole house or for a specific zone depending on how you have planned your schedule.

The size of your home

If you live in a one or two-bedroom house or studio apartment, you can keep up with daily chores and knock off more detailed cleaning on weekends. 

The number of people in your household

Whether you have kids with you in the house all day will make a big difference in how much time you can dedicate to cleaning. It can only be done in between feeds, changes, baths and other childcare tasks.

Whether you will handle everything yourself or you will have help

Another factor to consider is whether you will be doing everything or will have help. If you have older children, guide them through taking care of some chores such as bed making, putting their clean laundry away, loading and unloading the dishwasher and other tasks they can handle.
