Daily Tasks

The dishes will need to be done on a daily basis to prevent pest infestations and foul odours in the kitchen. Make sure you have time for dishes every day on your schedule after dinner. If you’d like to sanitise your counters daily with Zoflora make a note of this on your schedule.

Other daily cleaning tasks include the following:

  • Cleaning the toilet
  • Taking out the trash
  • Washing your pet’s bowls
  • Keeping all surfaces clean with Zoflora

Weekly Tasks

Other tasks such as doing the washing can be done once or twice a week. The best time to do the washing is on a Saturday or Sunday so you can make sure you have clean clothes for the week. Use Zoflora Linen Fresh when doing your washing to give your clothing a pleasant fragrance.

Another weekly task to put on your schedule is vacuuming your carpets. This can be done two to three times per week depending on the severity of the dirt build-up. You may also want to dust your bookshelves and cabinets weekly too.

Mowing your lawn is another weekly task. It’s important to keep your grass cut to avoid overgrown lawns and to prevent pest infestations.

Monthly Tasks

Monthly cleaning tasks include strenuous jobs that aren’t quick. For example, window washing is a monthly task because it takes a long time to complete. You can use your favourite Zoflora fragrance to clean your windows. Simply dilute your Zoflora concentrate in a spray bottle filled with water. Then shake it thoroughly before spraying the solution onto your windows to wash them.

Another monthly task is deep cleaning your oven. Always keep your oven clean to avoid foul orders and premature wear inside the oven. Washing walls and curtains are other monthly tasks but you can also do these jobs every two months.

Attending to your garden can be a monthly task. Spend time pulling out weeds and ridding your garden of pests every month to keep it looking neat and to prevent your plants from dying.

Do You Want to Assign Chores on Your Cleaning Schedule?

To relieve some of the pressure off of you, everyone in your household should be assigned a task on your cleaning schedule. Everyone should have a turn to do the dishes every week. Assign smaller tasks to your younger household members such as mopping the floors or wiping down counters.

You can also assign weekly and monthly chores to your household residents so that everyone has a chance to complete a job. If everyone works together your household will be well maintained.  

Why You Should Have a Cleaning Schedule

Lowers the Risk of Burn Out

If you have a strenuous job the last thing you want to do is clean your house when you get home. Having a cleaning schedule will lower your risk of burn out. You won’t have to stress about maintaining your home because everyone will work together to keep it clean.

However, if you live alone you can schedule your tasks throughout the week so that you don’t overwork yourself.

Gives Children a Sense of Responsibility

If you have children, assigning them chores on your cleaning schedule will give them a sense of responsibility. Chores also teach children valuable lessons such as how to maintain a home. So when they have their own homes one day, they’ll know how to keep it clean and tidy.

Chores also keep your children busy and it relieves some of your stress. Your cleaning schedule will ensure that everyone knows their duties so that your house is always clean and you don’t have to do all the work.

A Cleaning Schedule Frees Up Your Time

If you spend most of your time cleaning, you won’t have the time to do anything you truly enjoy doing. Maybe you like to read, paint or make clothes. When you have a proper cleaning schedule you’ll know what needs to be done and when to do it so you can free up your time to do the things you enjoy.
