Zone Clean Your Home

Cleaning Schedule TitleMy husband and I love entertaining friends and family in our new home so to keep our house warm and inviting we try to keep it as clean and as organized as possible.

However, we both work full-time so there is not much room to put aside about 3 hours to clean an entire house. Many have told us about cleaning services, but we figured if we found a routine that works around our schedule to do the cleaning ourselves we can save the money for more exciting things.

Also, there is a certain pride you take in on your home when you look back at your finished product knowing it was your own work that accomplished it.

I wanted to spend no more than 20-30 minutes cleaning the house on any given day and I definitely wanted to keep the weekends free for the fun stuff. Dividing the cleaning in sections or zones was the best way to make it happen.

The following are the specs of our house:

Two story

4 bedrooms

2.5 bathrooms

About 2,300 square feet

Concrete backyard patio with grass on the outer edges by the fence

Landscaping in the front of the house is done by the homeowner’s association (HOA)

The following is our Cleaning Schedule:

I timed myself to see how long it will take to do all the tasks of each day alone and here are my results:

Monday – 53 minutes

Tuesday – 23 minutes

Wednesday – 32 minutes

Thursday – 30 minutes

Friday – 17 minutes

As you can see, Monday is the longest day because I am actually cleaning the whole downstairs portion of the house in one shot. What I love about the time results is that if you add some extra pair of hands to do the tasks you end up with a clean section of your house in no time!

Times, of course, will vary based on the size of the house, how many people are involved in the cleaning process, and any extra specs to take into consideration (for example, a pool, more landscaping, etc). But I do believe that cleaning in zones is much more feasible for hard working individuals to maintain a clean home with room to party hard!

Think zone cleaning might work for you? Share some ideas on how you maintain a clean home.

Much Love,

    • I used to do that as well, but it would take me most of my day so I would go a long time without cleaning. The zone method has been amazing!
