How to Create a Cleaning Routine that Works for You

There is something about a Spring clean that can really make you feel refreshed. We all want a neat and orderly home, but not all of us know exactly how to get there. Below we’ll discuss some tips on creating a cleaning routine that works for you and will keep your home tidy all year long!

Find the Time

Let’s face it, life can get chaotic and busy with too much to do and not enough time. But in order to have a clean home, it’s important to not use time as an excuse to escape your cleaning tasks. Evaluate your available time and create a schedule that works for you. Try creating a weekly checklist in order to break up the tasks in a timely manner, even if it is just one or two tasks each week.

Decide Which Rooms Matter Most

Most of us have a room or two that we need to have cleaned in order to truly relax. Pick your top two and focus a little effort every day in order to keep them in tip-top shape, while the rest of your home just gets weekly attention.

Get the Family Involved

Cleaning your whole home can seem like a daunting task for just one person. If you need a little help, try getting the family involved! It can make a big difference and even the most unwilling helper can impact the workload. Having a hard time keeping others motivated? Try throwing on some music or establishing a reward for when the work is done.
