Most people don’t know when they want to have there cleaning done. It’s easy to start off with a calendar and decide which tasks are going to be done yearly, monthly, bi-monthly, and quarterly and then mark those on the calendar. Also, make a list of things that you want to be done daily and weekly, and that way you can easily follow which ones you want to have done and get them done. Because you have them written down, it makes it easier to have it done.
A tip that I have here is if children are included in cleaning the houses, make a list of what needs to be done in each room and maybe tape it inside the closet door so that children know exactly what they have to do. If they’re younger, pictures of toys so that they know they have to pick up their toys. Pictures of clothes so they know that they have to pick up their clothes; so that way they know exactly that they get everything done on their list.
