Set a Schedule
The key to a clean house is being organized. Take an inventory of everything that needs to be cleaned, figure out when they need to be cleaned by and set a schedule. Group like things together: Clean all your windows on the same week of each month, focus on furniture dusting on a different day and so on. By maintaining an organized cleaning schedule, you’re less likely to miss something. It’s so easy to be overwhelmed with keeping your house in order that you could end up neglecting something for months and months.
Month by Month, Section by Section
Don’t overwhelm yourself by doing too much too soon. If you want a clean house, remember the lesson of the Tortoise: Slow and steady wins the race! For maximum cleanliness and efficiency, pick one important room to focus on organizing each month. Maybe in January you’ll reorganize and rearrange your home office; On February you’ll work on your bedroom and so on. By focusing on one small section of your home at a time, you can give each area the exacting focus and attention that they’ll need to turn out just right.
Make it a Team Effort
If you don’t live by yourself, you have no excuse to be cleaning all by yourself! Get your roommate, your kids, your spouses and the rest of your family involved in keeping your home nice and tidy! Make a game of it, rewarding the people who get the most accomplished with a nice meal or a sweet prize.
Budget for Professional Cleaning
Treat yourself and your home to a professional cleaning. No matter how clean and organized you are, there are some messes that are best left to a professional. Include professional cleaning in your budget so that on busy and stressful months you can have one less big thing to worry about. Bring in some pros to ease your burden.
