School is back in session! Even though many students are attending virtual school at home because of the pandemic, the schedule tends to get busier for many families during this time of year.

Are you finding it a challenge to help your kids navigate online learning, while also keeping up with your work and home responsibilities? Parents feel like they are stretching themselves thin – which is why it is more important than ever to implement good systems at home.

Back to School Cleaning Schedule

Now that you are spending more time at home, it’s essential that you have a good cleaning routine to keep up with the messes. Having kids in the house all day long means that there are more dishes, more clutter, and more deep cleaning required.

As you are designing a cleaning schedule for the school year, look for ways that you can break down common tasks for daily, weekly, and monthly routines:

  • Daily: Even 15 minutes here and there can go a long way to help you stay ahead of things through the week. Dedicate a block of time to clean up the dishes after dinner, sweep the floors if necessary, and wipe down countertops.
  • Weekly: You can plan a cleaning day once a week, or pick small bite-size cleaning tasks once a day (rotating through the week). Tasks that need to be done weekly include cleaning out the fridge, mopping the floors, dusting, and scrubbing the bathrooms.
  • Monthly: Once a month, it feels good to get a thorough deep clean in your home. Once a month, set time aside for wiping down baseboards, cleaning out the garage, and organizing the closets.

Don’t forget to have your children help with the cleaning. It’s a great opportunity for kids to learn responsibility through chores and contributions to the household. When everyone is working together, you can finish the work quickly and enjoy the rest of the day doing something fun together.
