Keeping a house clean can be a pretty daunting task. Homeowners often lead busy lives and household chores can sometimes take a back seat to more pressing matters – both inside and outside the home. However, as we’ve discussed in previous posts, there are numerous benefits to keeping a neat and tiny home. That’s why today, our team at Christina’s Complete Clean is discussing how often certain cleaning tasks should be done.

How Often Should You Clean


Dusting is an important task to stay on top of, in order to reduce allergens and keep your house looking clean. However, how often you should do it greatly depends on your lifestyle and who lives in your home. For the general public, dusting every other week in the areas that are easiest to get to should be enough to keep those allergens down. Then, every month or so, do a deep dusting where you move furniture and get into all the nooks and crannies. However, if you have multiple pets, are extra sensitive to dust, or have asthma, you will likely need to dust more often than that.


If you want your home to feel and smell clean, floors are really not something you should ignore. In fact, even if you don’t have frequent activity in your home, you should still sweep and mop once a week. Dust and dirt can accumulate even if rooms in your house remain unused, and can actually lead to damage to your floors if left unchecked. For homes with pets or young kids, you may find you need to sweep twice a week and mop once, so find what works best for you.

Clean Bathrooms

For hygiene purposes, it’s really not a good idea to neglect your bathrooms. However, as most of the job involves cleaning by hand (instead of just pushing around a vacuum), it can feel like a lot of work. However, if you can stay on top of maintaining the area, you can make the job feel a little easier. We recommend wiping down your countertop daily, cleaning your toilet weekly, and cleaning your shower every 10 days or so. By breaking the job into parts, you’ll be able to have a clean bathroom all the time!
