How to Clean Your House Properly


Make the chores described overleaf for each room part of a regular routine and forget about ever having to spend hours and hours cleaning.

Enlist the help of everyone in the house for the communal areas, where ground rules must apply, but don’t get frustrated at the condition of anyone else’s personal room, because it isn’t yours and you aren’t responsible for cleaning it. Communal living areas are the responsibility of everyone. Don’t ever forget this fact and don’t ever try to do everything, because you will always be frustrated.

Kids’ rooms

Kids are another rule altogether. Teach your children well. Remember that everything they are taught now will remain with them. Set them an example and give them achievable goals.

  • Teach them to make their bed every day.
  • Make sure they can reach the rail in their closet and teach them to hang up their clothes when they have finished with them.
  • Make a routine of putting toys away.

Larger tasks

There are certain cleaning chores that don’t need to be done very regularly but should never be forgotten about. These are the tasks that should be undertaken every six months or once a year.

Spring ahead, Fall behind -things to do every six months

There is nothing like a change in the seasons to prompt a massive tidy. It always seems to me to symbolise a new beginning, and what better way than to start with refreshing your home?

Set aside a few hours of the weekend and only do one area of the house at a time. I like to start with the bedroom, as this is where I need to relax at the end of the day. When you’ve finished, treat yourself to someĀ­thing wonderful: a cup of coffee, a luxurious bubble bath, an hour sitting in your favourite chair listening to your favourite piece of music.

Yearly check-up

  • Remove the limescale from everywhere that it appears.
  • Have the rugs shampooed.
  • Check the heating or air-conditioning systems.
  • Have the chimneys swept.
  • Clean all of your major appliances.
  • Don’t forget to clean the detergent dispensers in your washing and dishwashing machines.
  • Remove the crumbs from the toaster.
  • Go through all of your personal papers and throw away any that you no longer need.
  • Spend a day putting photographs in albums.
  • Call a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while.
