House Cleaning Schedule Ideas

House cleaning... Nobody wants to do it, but it has to be done! Many people find house cleaning rather overwhelming, but there are certain tricks you can use to make cleaning your Lake of the Ozarks home easier and more manageable. Fran Campbell Team is here to suggest a simple house cleaning schedule that will keep you on-track (and stress-free)!




Every Day -

  • Wipe down kitchen counters and bathroom sinks.
  • Put away prominent objects that are out of place, such as toys, blankets, and books.
  • Scrub visible spots on floor
  • Sweep up noticeable crumbs with a broom or handheld vacuum cleaner.

Every Two Weeks - 

  • Dust all surfaces (bookshelves, desks, windowsills, etc).
  • Vacuum/sweep/mop all floors.
  • Clean all of the bathrooms (mirrors, sinks, counters, toilets, tubs/showers).


Every Month -

  • Wash all the windows and mirrors.
  • Wipe out all of your trash cans.
  • Clean out your refrigerator (throw out any old/expired food and wipe down all drawers and shelves).

Tips to Make it Easier - 


Stay on top of things. This is certainly easier said than done, but it will make a world of difference. No single cleaning task is a huge undertaking, but having to do several tasks at one time can seem daunting. If you can keep up with your house cleaning schedule and not fall behind, you're less likely to feel overwhelmed.

Try not to do too many things at once. No one said that the floors needed to be swept and the bookshelves needed to be dusted at the same time. We suggested that you do each of those things every two weeks, but you don't have to do them on the same day. Feel free to space your cleaning tasks out however you need to.

Stay organized. Again, this is easier said than done, but it's well worth the effort. Try not to get overwhelmed by the clutter that tends to pile up in homes - make sure that all the toys, clothes, books, blankets, gadgets, and all other miscellaneous items find their way back to their homes at the end of the day. If you can stay on top of the daily clutter, cleaning your home will not be as intimidating.

Find a schedule that works for you. The cleaning schedule we described here is just one suggestion. Everybody's different, and everybody has different cleaning preferences. Some people prefer to do all of their weekly tasks in one day so they can take the rest of the days off from cleaning, whereas others choose to designate one task per day so cleaning won't take as long at any given time. 

We hope you find these suggestions helpful!
