(Organize to manage time and effort)
Where is the starting point that leads to a clean and organized home?
Sticking to a customized plan of action!
Action step #1
Create and prioritize a list of cleaning tasks for the home’s living spaces. Every room in the domain is on this list. Establishing a clear method with associated cleaning product(s) for each house cleaning task is important. This will also jump-start an education related to the whys and hows of cleaning. Also, the required knowledge for each how-to cleaning task will inspire best practices for house cleaning success. Deciding on specific tasks, with associated timelines, are required for successful cleaning outcomes, for example:
- Wet mopping
- Dust mopping
- Kitchen appliance and bathroom cleaning
- Furniture polishing
- High dusting of walls
These are some of the specific decisions to be made. Also, analyzing the frequency of usage of each room is a necessary component for establishing cleaning task timelines.
Action step #2
A detailed examination: How many days with associated timelines are available for routine cleaning tasks? Be honest, 30 minutes or 60 minutes a day or every other day per room, or will it be a weekend marathon of cleaning tasks for all rooms? Without a doubt, dirty rooms are markers of living in our homes. Our lives are ongoing 7 days a week, week in and week out. We need to allocate time to clean; house cleaning is a great exercise partner, or tasks can be delegated to someone else. Routine cleaning of a home, regardless of who does it, will make a home more enjoyable, more comfortable, and healthier.
Action step #3
Getting started: Once you establish cleaning day(s) with tasks and the associated timelines, you are now instituting structure for your success. Daily, weekly, and rotating cleaning tasks will maintain a clean home and your sanity, as well. Trust me, I am someone that loves to clean, but house cleaning is a worthy adversary and it demands an attentive approach, whether you like to clean or not.
Action step #4
Let’s get moving: Once you are in possession of a reasonable plan of action steps. Your customized and knowledgable how-to cleaning plan needs to be comprehensive, as well as easily transferable. This personalized blue-print for your home’s cleaning tasks can be passed on to another. Also, it can be modified as you see fit. Possessing a house cleaning plan that is effective and organized, will achieve cleaning success.
