Comprehensive Cleaning Check-List

How often certain areas of your home need cleaning depends on each home and their individual needs; however, this can give you a good overall check-list to ensure nothing in your home gets missed. The more you regularly clean each part of your home the less stressful it will be, the less time it will take, the simpler maintaining cleanliness in your home will be, and the easier your life will become! The list may seem daunting at first but the more you keep up with regular cleanings, the less time it will take. You may even notice that some areas need cleaning less often.
