How To Develop A Family Cleaning Schedule

Jan 3, 2023 | Healthy Home

Everyone’s living situation is different. One might live with their significant other, family of 5, their parents. Some have lots of pets others just one. Either way, it’s important to keep a clean home to prevent allergens, allergen build up, and to improve overall happiness! At times, it can feel like an impossible feat with beds that need to be made, floors that need to be mopped and dishes that need to be done! So why are you doing all the work yourself? Here’s how to make get everything organize in a few easy and simple steps.


Get Your Toddlers Involved (It’s Never Too Early!)

No matter how quiet or loud your home may be, the same rule applies: when you have a healthy home, you have a happy home. Toddlers are really good at making a mess and then leaving it for the parents to clean up. Do you have a toddler who impersonates the Tasmanian devil? Great! Use it to your advantage! Teach them to be responsible for one small chore, such as tidying up the living room and putting some toys away. Just implementing a ‘one small chore’ rule on a daily basis, and you’ll notice the time it saves you.

Implement a Reward System

Everyone could use a reason ‘why’ to stay on track. Gather all the markers, stickers, crayons and other craft tools you can find, then find a whiteboard. Make a list of all the family members names with the week’s chores that need to be completed. Be sure to make the chore age appropriate. You want each child to feel good about themselves, not frustrated because the task at hand is too difficult to complete. Decorate the chart so the charts seems like it’s the toddlers ‘own’.

Together as a family, come up with a reward for a week’s worth of chores accomplished. Would your kids like to head out to their favorite ice cream shop? Or, would everyone enjoy a round of bowling? Implement a reward that will motivate your family to do an excellent job taking care of their personal belongings. You’ll be making memories after the hard work is done!
