My Weekly Cleaning Routine
I am going to share my weekly cleaning routine with you. The house cleaning tips and tricks that I do to make sure that I have a clean home. Be sure to read though to the end, where I share a cleaning checklist that you can download and use.
Before my current cleaning routine. I use to spend every Saturday morning cleaning my home. Right after my morning workout. I would go from room to room cleaning my home. I would also do a deep clean every other week in certain areas. After a while I started to get burnt out from this routine. I realized that by mid afternoon on Saturdays I was exhausted from cleaning all morning. That I didn’t want to do anything else. I would just stay home, relax, and not do much else.
With that said, I recently changed to a weekly cleaning routine. Cleaning my home Monday thru Friday and taking the weekends off. What I do, is after my morning workout. I will take an hour to clean two rooms. I will split my time between 30 minutes in one room and 30 minutes in another room. That’s it. Between Monday thru Friday I am able to clean my entire home with this routine.
Monday: Garage + Courtyard
Tuesday: Living Room + Office
Friday: Kitchen + Patio
This routine has been working really well for me. Since I am already sweaty and gross from my workout. Not to mention still have somewhat of an adrenaline rush. I can knock out cleaning two rooms easily and then take a shower afterwards. I hope that by sharing my weekly cleaning routine. You might pick up a couple of tips and tricks to add to your cleaning routine.

Saturday & Sunday’s House Cleaning Schedule
On Saturday and Sunday, I make it a point to not do any house cleaning or chores for that matter. I try and enjoy the weekend as much as possible and save any house chores for during the week. If I do happen to do anything house related. It’s most likely taking the trash out because it’s full and or putting the dishwasher to run because it is also full.
Deep Cleaning Schedule
As I mentioned earlier, every other week I like to do a deep clean in certain areas. A deep clean covers areas that I don’t get to by doing regular cleaning. For example, cleaning under furniture, dusting ceiling fans, wiping down light fixtures, cleaning blinds, baseboards, window frames, and door frames. The list could go on and on.
