How to make your own house cleaning checklist

Whether you enjoy cleaning or not, there’s one thing that always remains true … someone has to do it. If the person cleaning in your house happens to be you, then you should definitely create a checklist that is simple to follow. More importantly, this checklist should take into consideration the different rooms in your home and how to best clean them without running back and forth across your entire house. After all, the quicker you get your cleaning finished, the sooner you can enjoy activities that actually excite you. 

Here’s a quick look at a few tips for making a house cleaning checklist, and don’t forget that when cleaning your home, you’ll want to use eco-friendly products. Here at Mopfrog of Brooklyn, we center all of your cleaning practices around green cleaning methods. 

1) Choose Which Days are Best for Cleaning

The first step in creating a realistic home cleaning checklist is choosing the days that you can clean. For instance, do you have time to clean 30 minutes a day, seven days a week? Or does a routine of cleaning one hour a day, three days a week work better for your schedule? Once you have decided on the days you can clean, you can then add cleaning tasks to each day. 

2) Clean All Bedrooms on the Same Day

You should be cleaning at least three days a week, if possible. On one of these days, you should plan on washing bed linens and cleaning each bedroom in your home. Even if no one sleeps in some of the beds, the linens need to be changed regularly to prevent a musty smell from developing. 

3) Clean All Bathrooms on the Same Day 

The next day that you tackle cleaning, make sure to clean all bathrooms. Deep cleaning your bathrooms will consist of washing out the showers, cleaning the toilets, and wiping down the vanities. Also, don’t forget the floors. 

4) Clean the Kitchen and Utility Room

Lastly, you’ll need to spend a day cleaning your kitchen and utility room. Wipe down all appliances as well as run a cleaning mode through your dishwasher and washer. And don’t forget, the more you keep these rooms clean during the week, the less you’ll have to clean on your cleaning days. 

And don’t forget, if you don’t have to clean your home, we do. Here at Mopfrog, we specialize in eco-friendly cleaning, and we’re ready to get your home sparkling like the top of the Chrysler Building.

cleaning tips to keep your house clean between visits

You’ve decided to invest in professional cleaning services, and so far, you’ve been amazed with the services provided. However, even though the cleaning company comes once every one to weeks, there’s still seems to be some cleaning that needs to be performed in between these visits. Fortunately, there are several tips you can follow to make sure your home stays spick and span all week long. 

Be sensible and realistic

If you have cleaners visit your home once a month, then you are obviously going to need to clean more frequently than you would if the cleaners came once a week. You’ll also need to determine for yourself what you consider a clean home. Do clean clothes laying on your bed waiting to be put away count as a mess? For some, it will. For others, they’re just tickled to death that the clothes are clean. Also, if your glass shower door has a smudge on it, does it cause you to miss sleep at night? Your idea of clean determines how much you need to clean. 

Once a week is the minimum

It doesn’t matter who you are or how much time you spend in your home, the floors and toilets need to be cleaned at least once a week. If you don’t have cleaners coming in every week to clean for you, you may as well invest in green cleaning supplies, a broom, mop, and other basic cleaning supplies. 

Everything needs to be picked up off the floors

Having clean clothes laying on your bed isn’t a big deal. Having clothes strung out across your bedroom floor is. After all, how are the cleaners supposed to clean your bedroom if they can’t even walk through it? Keeping this in mind, you should make it a goal to keep everything picked up. Not only is this a sign of maturity, but it allows you cleaners to provide more in-depth cleaning services. 

Keep your house cleaning checklist basic

Just because you have to clean in between visits from your cleaners doesn’t mean you have to get down on your hands and knees and scrub the floors — you can if you want, though. What it does mean, however, is that you need to perform basic cleaning tasks, including:

  • Wiping down kitchen counters each day
  • Sweeping and mopping at least once a week
  • Wiping off back of toilets after each use
  • Dusting, if needed, once every two weeks
  • Clean mirrors and doors when you see smudges on them

 

Keeping your home clean doesn’t have to be a hassle, especially when you have professional cleaners coming into clean it every few weeks. As long as you keep things picked up, your cleaners should be able to come in and perform their services in less than eight hours. In fact, many cleaning companies are able to clean the average-size home in less than two hours each week. Of course it will depend on the exact services that you prefer as to the exact length of time that it takes your cleaners to perform them. For instance, if you want your carpets steamed cleaned each week, then this will add onto the time it takes to clean your home.
