Home Cleaning Schedule: What To Clean and When To Do It

I’m fortunate that I’m one of those weird people that enjoy cleaning. It’s not so much the actual cleaning that I enjoy, but more so the finished product. I like looking at a room and knowing what it looked like before, and admiring the after- and just knowing that my home is clean and presentable.

Fortunately, if you’re not one of these people, there are ways to reduce the workload so that it doesn’t all fall on Sunday afternoon. A cleaning schedule might seem like the last thing you want to spend the time making, but it will help spread the tasks out and ensure that your home is keeping you healthy- not making you sick.
