Make it a habit to have floors swept everyday. Depending on the type of flooring, dirt, lint, snacks, dried food etc. tend to firmly stick to the surface or even settle deeply into the floor or grout, demanding more effort and time to clean. Sweep regularly and clean up floors with the help of a professional cleaner once every few months to keep your floors looking shiny as new! 
Mop as often as possible to add a sparkle to the flooring and rid persistent grime

Typical Indian homes still have a regular sweep and mop routine every morning, delegated to the domestic help. If you do your own cleaning, sweeping or vacuuming daily will sure minimize persistent dirt, and need for heavy mopping at the end of the week or month!

Cleaning Task 2 - Cook & Clean

Cleaning up the kitchen as and when you complete a specific task will clear up the space to work comfortably.  For instance, you could aim to keep the counter top clean. De-clutter by putting cereal boxes, spice bottles etc. back in place after use.

Doing the dishes can be a nightmare, especially if you’ve postponed the task. Clean used dishes (at least some of them, in case there are too many) promptly instead of simply leaving them in the sink.

Most of us have a tendency to leave books or clothing on the bed or sofa. This pile simply keeps growing until you find that there is not enough space left for you on these pieces of comfort furniture! Making your bed every day is a great way to ensure that you keep your bedroom clean and organized. With time a clean bed creates a feel-good factor that automatically deters you from messing up the place.

Cleaning Task 4 - Clean Up Immediately

Cleaning up immediately is a welcome habit that helps keep your home looking good, without any special efforts.  Mop up wet spills promptly, wipe mirrors in the bathroom, dressing table or those built into the doors of your wardrobe every day, put away clutter and design storage to use it optimally to stash all your belongings.

It is but natural for each home to have its very-own problem areas that demand more attention when it comes to keeping the place clean. If you have a pet at home, you may need to watch out for pet-dander pile up during seasonal shedding. If you have kids, you are bound to be challenged by toys and dirty laundry strewn around the home. Piles of laundry at the end of the week can prove daunting. Start by identifying cleaning tasks that takes up most of your weekend. Address them may be twice a week or daily if possible to ensure that you have more quality time during the weekends, or perhaps daily if things go fine!
