(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: 

  1. Vacuuming
  2. Sweeping
  3. Wet mopping
  4. Dust mopping
  5. Kitchen appliance and bathroom cleaning 
  6. Furniture polishing
  7. 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.
