House Cleaning Tips and Ideas

While making a house cleaning schedule, you can divide the work into two sections, namely the rooms in which the cleaning has to be done, and the frequency with which it has to be done, i.e. daily, weekly or monthly. You can also classify the tasks that have to be completed on the basis of the rooms of your house. Keeping these points in mind we have prepared the above template that hopes to cover almost all the cleaning that there is. Now, let us see some pointers that will help you get through the seemingly arduous task of cleaning your house.
  • First things first, make sure you stick to the schedule. There's no point in making a fancy schedule if it's just going to be stuck on your refrigerator.
  • The point of the schedule is to ease your way into the cleaning process to make sure that bits get done everyday. This will avoid the need for a major 'cleanstorm' when you suddenly have guests or during the festive season.
  • Get the whole family involved in the cleaning process. Divide the chores according to the age and time spent by each member at home. Be fair in the division of chores, or you'll have a rebellion at hand.
  • Once the work is divided, it is each person's responsibility to make sure that the work gets done within the mentioned time frame. Defaulters can be given extra chores to make up.
  • When everyone does their work as it needs to be done, you'll see that all the cleaning will no longer be a tedious job that takes days to complete, it will be done in a jiffy, well almost.
