Every household has to maintain some type of routine to stay organized from what’s for dinner, where each family member is going and of course keeping the house clean.
There are cleaning chores that need to be done daily, weekly, monthly and seasonally to best promote a clean and healthy lifestyle. Over the next few weeks we will unveil our house cleaning checklists for each of these categories starting off with monthly as we find those are the hardest to stay on top of.
