This is a question we all ask ourselves, because, yes, we want to maintain our homes in a perfect condition and to keep them clear and shining, but we are not so keen on the idea of cleaning every day. With the busy schedules we have these days and our tense lifestyles, we too often don’t have enough free time and decide to spend it walking in the park, instead of cleaning in the bathroom. And then unsurprisingly we are totally unsatisfied by what we see when we come back home. Yes, the spring cleaning and the fall one is something we take care of, we even hired one of the professional London cleaners then, but it is obviously not enough. In fact, it’s all about the organization and the way we plan our cleaning. No one can answer you precisely how often you should be cleaning, because it depends on your time and skills and home and last but not least on your understanding of the concept “clean”. Once a month is, however, in my opinion, not enough, especially for some things that should be done on a daily basis. Here is a cleaning model that proved to fit my needs and requirements. Take a look.
The everyday cleaning
No, I don’t mean that you should clean your home that often, but there are some little things that if you skip now, will create a lot of trouble later. The main thing is the clutter. If you somehow don’t prevent your home from getting messy, you will end up needing ages only to declutter and only after that you will be able to start with the clean-up. And I want to assure you that this is not something you would be happy about in the end.
The every week cleaning
There are a lot more tasks here. Some of them are too obvious and expected like the vacuum-cleaning, the dust removal and the windows washing. The laundry is something you should do on a weekly basis as well, because otherwise you won’t have some fresh and clean clothes for the new week, or you will have to spend too much time doing the laundry at the end of the month. Last but not least comes the bathroom. And I know that this is one of the most unpleasant cleaning tasks, but it is something you should do often enough. If you skip it now, it will become a nightmare with the time and when it’s time for an end of tenancy cleaning, you will be so sorry that you will be miserably crying over your stupidity.
The every month cleaning
The tasks here are not that mandatory, but are necessary for a nice-looking and well-maintained home. So once per month start with the carpet and deeply clean it, removing all the stains. Take care of the couches then and the chairs’ fabrics. And finally pay some attention to the walls and keep them perfectly clean as well.
