A little bit of cleaning every day goes a long way to having your home well-maintained, comfortable, and cosy. Now here is some good news for the enthusiastic haters of daily cleaning and for everyone who does not enjoy cleaning in general – there are some tasks and chores around the house that need to be tackled down just once a week! Hurray to weekly cleaning tasks! As an example, dishwashing is a daily task despite the fact that you hate it (well, most of us do hate it). However, washing the towels is completely ok and common to happen just once a week. The way you are going to spread tackling down these tasks along the week is entirely up to you-you may choose to accomplish them all in just one day, during the weekend, or do a task a day. No matter what you are going to choose, here is a list of the top 10 most common weekly tasks:
Having a laundry day, just one day of the week dedicated to doing laundry, is a common routine for the majority of the people. Of course, some big families and people with a more active way of living probably need one more laundry day in the week but, in general, once weekly is the golden rule.
Sheets, towels, blankets, etc
The task of washing (or cleaning) your bedding, sheets, towels, blankets, etc. goes along with number one. Keep in mind that towels, sheets, and other linens should be washed separately from your clothes.
Cleaning the kitchen appliances is one more task that falls into the weekly category. Simply do not forget to wipe clean of food particles, dust, and grime your microwave, dishwasher, stove, and refrigerator, and you are good to go. If you are using some small kitchen appliances such as a toaster do not forget to take care of them too.
Furniture is top one thing in the house attracting dust and wiping the dust once weekly is just about enough to make sure your house looks and feels fresh and comfortable.
Mirrors attract fingerprints and dust like a magnet. Just a quick wipe up once a week is more than enough to leave them sparkling clean.
Carpets and rugs
Vacuuming your carpet and rugs once a week is just about enough to get rid of all the dust, grime, and allergens accumulated throughout the week. However, some high traffic areas of the house need a more common vacuuming so keep that in mind.
Hardwood, tiles, and vinyl floors
Hard floors should be vacuumed and washed once a week too except high traffic areas which may require more cleaning throughout the week. When cleaning a hardwood floor, keep in mind to use as less water and liquids as possible to prevent swelling of the floorboards.
Shower and tub
Cleaning and disinfecting the bathroom once a week is a must so you can get rid of all germs, bacteria, and prevent mould and mildew.
Just like the weekly cleaning and disinfecting of the shower and bathtub prevent the spreading of germs and leaves the space extra clean, fresh, and enjoyable, the same applies for all bathroom surfaces, cabinets, and drawers.
Cleaning the toilet is one of the most hated chores around the house for many people and it is easy to see why. However, weekly cleaning of the toilet is a necessity.
