Daily Cleaning Schedule With a Printable Checklist

Your Daily Cleaning Schedule Checklist

Establishing a daily cleaning regimen will help keep you organized!

Prudent and clean living persons have one amazing trait in common. They don’t mind tidying up the house daily so their weekly major house cleanings are a little easier to handle. If you want to join the ranks of the prudent and clean living folks, we suggest you adopt a daily house cleaning schedule. Better yet, we recommend you adopt a cleaning schedule that is guided by a solid daily cleaning checklist.

Daily cleanings will never be a waste of your time. They will ensure your home is reasonably clean each day while waiting for a thorough house cleaning on “cleaning day.” A daily cleaning checklist will make it easier for you to stay organized and not miss key cleaning chores.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I manage a daily cleaning schedule if I need Airbnb cleanings?

It’s likely you don’t have the time to handle your rental cleaning responsibilities if you have a high-traffic unit. We have a great process for handling vacation rental cleaning. We have an automated Airbnb cleaning system that syncs with the Airbnb system. We get alerts when a vacation rental cleaning is needed, and we automatically schedule it.

If I am good about tidying up, how often will I need to do weekly standard cleanings and take care of deep cleaning of the house?

If you maintain a tight cleaning schedule every day, a weekly cleaning schedule should suffice. As for deep cleaning of the house, we would recommend that you do that at least once a month as long as you are tidy.

Does MaidThis offer daily cleaning services?

Yes we do. We have plenty of busy customers who love coming home to a clean house every day. We also specialize in Airbnb cleanings. If you want daily cleanings, we could offer you a reasonable hourly rate and send maids in each day at a predetermined time. Let professional cleaners handle your home or Airbnb while you visit some of the nicest attractions in St. Petersburg & Clearwater.

How long should it take me to handle my daily cleaning responsibilities?

To make a reasonable estimate, we would need to consider factors like the number of rooms in the house, family size, and the overall cleanliness of the household or a vacation rental. With that said, the habit of doing daily cleanings while using a good checklist should make it easy to accomplish everything in less than 30-45 minutes. The good news is the time needed will get shorter as you maintain cleaning discipline and it works both for Airbnb or a home cleaning.
