If you are still not convinced you should create a cleaning schedule, check out the top 10 reasons to create a cleaning schedule for your home.

Everything in your home does not need to be cleaned with the same frequency.
Therefore, the best house cleaning schedules include schedules for the following:
In addition, when creating your household's cleaning schedule you should understand the order in which to tackle cleaning tasks, to make sure you use your time and energy efficiently.
Use the articles listed above for ideas on what needs to be included in each schedule, but make sure you tweak your schedule to fit your own family and lifesytle.
Once you have at least rough household cleaning schedules created you should put them in your household notebook. This allows everyone in your home to look at them, and participate in the process.
Do Not Become A Slave To Your Cleaning Schedule
On the other hand, do not become a slave to your cleaning schedule to the point that you do not have time to do other important things, like spending time with your family.
Cleaning schedules are meant to help you "get it done, and have more fun," not to become a means unto themselves.
So what if there is an emergency or your sweet little child wants to cuddle with his Mommy?
Focus on priorities for cleaning when you are in a hurry, and continue to enjoy your family and your home at the same time.
That means your schedules should emphasize the priorities, and then have everything else be extras that would be wonderful to get done, but can be cut out in a pinch.
It also means that if your cleaning schedule is 10 pages long you are not focusing on the priorities.
Make sure your housekeeping schedule is short enough to actually get done on a regular basis.
