For many people, one of the most important 2022 resolutions, besides health, wellbeing, and happiness, is to have a cleaner life, both literally and figuratively. And since having a neat place to stay, where you can feel comfortable, has a crucial impact on your life, you have to make sure that your home is always in the best condition. After all, this is where you spend most of the time, including sleeping and even working, more recently, and where the most important beings in your life are: your partner, your children, maybe even your pets. Therefore, you most certainly want your home or apartment to be clean, welcoming, and tidy all the time.
This is why, in this article, we asked a team of experts in professional cleaning services to provide a universal cleaning schedule, to help you understand how often you should perform different chores around the house.

The ultimate 2022 cleaning chart – developed by highly-trained experts in professional cleaning services
Daily cleaning: kitchen, surface areas, coffee maker, dirty dishes;
Every few days: bathroom sink, general clutter, mirrors, furniture;
Weekly cleaning: frequently touched areas, bathrooms, microwave, kitchen appliances;
Every few weeks: fridge, floors, showers, tubs, plants, dishwasher, laundry machines, vacuuming vents & woodwork, dusting the blinds;
A few times a year: baseboards, ceiling fans, range hood, windows, oven, freezer, pantries, closets, shower curtain liner, cleaning behind & under furniture, washing pillows & comforters, vacuuming mattresses;
Annual cleaning: drapes, curtains, light fixtures, chimney & fireplace, gutters, around the dryer & vents, deep cleaning (carpet, upholstery, and windows).
Some of the items mentioned above by the experts in professional cleaning services we consulted might seem surprising, such as the necessity of cleaning surface areas or the coffee maker daily, mirrors every few days, and the microwave & kitchen appliances weekly. However, as doctors say, prevention is better than cure, and taking care of everything around the house on a regular basis is much easier than resorting to a general cleaning once or twice a year.
“If you notice something is dirtier than it should be, or if something doesn’t work as it should – this is a clear sign something is wrong. If you decide to DIY and clean everything for yourself, you should consider the fact that it will take you a long time, especially if you are not used or inclined to this activity, and you also have to buy all the cleaning products you need”, our friends at Home & Business Services write on their blog. Of course, the alternative is to contact them and request their professional cleaning services – this way, you will obtain not only a perfectly clean home, but also peace of mind, spare time, and you could even save money (since they will bring everything they need with them).
