      While maintaining a weekly house cleaning regimen results in a more livable home, did you realize it also benefits your mental health?

      According to surveys, persons who clean consistently are happier, calmer, and more productive. Clutter might encourage procrastination and even poor eating habits.

      Therefore, if you accomplish one thing this month, establish a weekly cleaning program. Your future self will appreciate it. Here’s how to construct one, as well as a sample cleaning plan we created—feel free to modify it to suit your needs.

      To Begin With, What Are You Working With?

      To develop a weekly house cleaning regimen that works for you, you must first understand what you’re up against. The same timetable will not apply to everyone, as we all have unique work, school, and home responsibilities.

      Additionally, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms significantly increases the amount of time spent cleaning—additionally, pets. A household with two dogs may require more vacuuming than a household with one goldfish.

      Second, Keep Your Supplies Organized

      To be honest, the most critical factor in maintaining a consistent weekly house cleaning regimen has the necessary products in a well-organized location.

      If you spend a lot of time looking for necessary equipment, it will cause aggravation and may likely deter you from cleaning in the future. Additionally, ensure that you buy high-quality things.

      There is no point in purchasing a vacuum that is incapable of cleaning your rugs or that will break down after a few months.

      Thirdly, Do Your Daily Chores

      Some duties should be completed daily if you want to keep your home clean. We like to refer to them as “As You Go” chores because they can be accomplished relatively quickly as you go about your daily routine.

      For instance, dump filthy items into a hamper and make your bed in the mornings. Wipe off the bathroom sink and place wet towels on the towel rack.

      Disinfect any unclean breakfast dishes. Take out the trash as you exit. While cooking dinner, wipe down the counters and load the dishwasher (this is a huge one!).

      Spending ten minutes clearing clutter when you return home from work (or any other outing) can significantly improve the cleanliness of your home (and your mood).

      As with cleaning materials, designate specific areas for toys, shoes, gloves, keys, and blankets that are frequently put on a chair and forgotten about. When you know where everything goes, decluttering becomes infinitely more manageable and time-efficient.
