Ready for some home cleaning and maintenance schedule tips? From Monday to Sunday, check out these cleaning ideas you can do within the week. You will find some that are too obvious but almost always neglected when cleaning.
Checklists for Weekly Home Cleaning and Maintenance Schedule
Here is a checklist that you can apply in making your own schedule. According to our professional cleaning experts, the best way to go about planning your schedule is to know whether you really have time for it or not. Take note, leave the cleaning to experts if there are other important things you can do. Consider the amount you will pay for a cleaner compared to what you can earn when you are not cleaning.
Monday General Cleaning Checklist
The weekend has gone by, which means your floors experienced all sorts of stains. Regardless of whether it’s due to your pet’s muddy paws or your children’s mess, there’s no better cleaning equipment to clean your home than with your vacuum and mop.
We know how life can be very busy, especially if you are working a 9 to 5 job. If you don’t have the leisure time to vacuum or mop the entire house, go through these high-traffic areas in between full regular cleanings:
- Living room
- Dining room
Make sure to vacuum before you mop so that you won’t be dragging the dirt around your house. You can also replace some of your rugs and deodorize your carpets for a cleaner home at the start of the week.
Tuesday Regular Bathroom Cleaning Checklist
Wear your plastic gloves and go scrubbing with a brush. Tuesdays can be your bathroom days. You can focus on your toilet, showerhead, faucets, and bidets. It may not be your favorite day of the week now, but you’ll surely have the rest of the week’s newly cleaned bathrooms. Here are some of the particular things-to-do when you finally decide to clean your bathrooms:
- Spray your favorite stain remover inside the crevices of the toilet
- Soak your showerhead in vinegar using a shower cap
- Scrub your bathtub or shower area walls to remove soap suds and slime
- Spray plastic shower curtains with disinfectant and soak the bottom in detergent
- Disinfect the bathroom sinks and counters
- Replace rugs
- Take bathmats outside and give them a good shake
- Replenish toiletries
Wednesday Surface Cleaning Checklist
Floor check, bathrooms check, what’s next is quite easy. You will need a duster or a microfiber towel, mask, and vacuum. It is time to remove the dust on surfaces and vacuum whatever falls on the floor. Look around your bedroom, living room, kitchen, and even study room. What are the surfaces you can find?
To save time, go around and do the wipe test. Simply run your fingers across one surface. If you discover dust, chances are the neighboring surfaces also accumulated dust already. It is best to start with those dust-prone areas. Finally, don’t forget about the windowsills! Here are some of the forgotten surfaces that you must include in your checklist:
- Refrigerator top
- Microwave oven top
- Tall cabinets
- Table under compartments
Thursday Window Cleaning Checklist
Thursdays are for window cleaning. Does not have to be an intensive one, a simple wipe to remove the grime should be enough. Make sure to list down all of the windows you have at home so you never miss one. Our professional window cleaners suggest that you begin in bedrooms down to the living room. Areas that must be regularly wiped down:
- Windows in the kitchen near the stove
- Bathroom windows
- Windows near the door
Friday Disinfection Cleaning Checklist
Similar to our suggested Wednesday surface wipe down routine, you can add a little more cleaning effort when Friday comes. Use disinfection sprays on surfaces to remove any germs that may have built up. Here are some of the areas prone to germs:
- Kitchen countertop
- Dining table
- Decorative cabinet
- Coffee table
Weekend Special Checklist
Last home cleaning and maintenance schedule but definitely not least, the weekend special checklist! Drop the broom, mop, and unplug the vacuum. Let a professional do a more intensive cleaning of your home. You have already done your part in keeping your home tidy during the weekday and that is more than enough considering your other role as a mother, wife, or daughter. Take a look at the finer things in life.
- Bring children to the park
