Using a Cleaning Chart at Our Apartments in Gainesville, FL
Cleaning charts aren’t just for children; they can actually be useful for adults, too. They give us a guideline for what we should clean and when, so our apartments can remain tidy and clean places to live.
If you’ve been thinking a cleaning chart could help keep you on task with your housework, we’ve compiled a few tips to help you get started. First, your cleaning chart should be organized into three sections: daily chores, weekly chores, and monthly chores. Daily chores should be simple and take less than 20 to 30 minutes to complete. They include washing dishes, making the bed, and wiping down kitchen countertops.
Weekly chores are a bit more involved and could take one to two hours to finish. Some weekly chores to include on a cleaning chart are:
- Sweeping and mopping the kitchen and bathroom(s)
- Scouring the bathroom counter(s), tub(s), and toilet(s)
- Cleaning mirrors and windows
- Doing laundry
- Wiping down all kitchen appliances
- Changing linens
Lastly, you should include a few monthly tasks on your cleaning chart, such as cleaning out the fridge and freezer, wiping down baseboards, laundering linens, spot cleaning rugs, and de-cluttering one area of the apartment. Once you have established the types of chores you want to include on your chart, write them down and display your chart somewhere in your apartment, so you always know what you need to do and when to do it.
