Keeping the House Clean by Creating a Rotation

House cleaning can be difficult to fit into a busy schedule. Even regular maintenance is difficult when your time is stretched to the limit! How can you get the cleaning done without becoming overwhelmed?

Cleaning services help tremendously by periodically getting the house back to a point where all it needs is maintenance. Once you’re at that point, setting up a cleaning rotation for yourself can make keeping it straight a lot easier. Here’s the plan:

Step #1: Write down everything that needs to be done. Include every detail—vacuuming, sweeping, tidying—and write down which rooms you need to clean. The list will be long, but don’t let it discourage you. It will get easier!

Step #2: Prioritize. Go through your list and decide which things are the most important and the most pressing. For instance, cleaning the kitchen counters will end up being high on the list, because you never want to have a dirty kitchen! Laundry might be a little lower because you only do it once or twice a week.

Step #3: Build a rotation based on the time frame you’ve given for your tasks. Look at your list—which things need to be done daily? Which things only weekly? Mix those into a rotation. When you’re done, one day might look like this: 

  • Wash dishes
  • Wipe down counters
  • Sweep kitchen floor
  • Sweep bathroom floor
  • Clean bathroom sink, counters, toilets, and tub.

The following day might include washing the dishes, wiping down counters, and another set, like cleaning the living room or doing all of the laundry.

Setting up any kind of schedule is going to be better than winging it—you’re much less likely to get overwhelmed if you focus on just a few things that have to be done today!
