Back to School, Back to “Normal” Household Routines
When kids are home from school for the summer, everything changes. You know what we mean …
Daily schedules have to be adjusted, and mealtimes and bedtimes are moved to accommodate new summer activities. You probably did more laundry, and either mopped or vacuumed the floor more, too.
Summer vacation also can mean out-of-town travel, and that throws your entire routine – house cleaning, too – off track. Isn’t it amazing that your house can get dirty when you weren’t even home?!
If you travelled or were away from home for a significant amount of time this summer, you probably have extra cleaning to do (dust and cobwebs are usually the biggest offenders). If the kids have been home all day throughout the summer, you probably have extra cleaning due to them as well (doorframes, window sills, glass doors and mirrors).
So when the kids go back to school, you can get back to your “normal” household routine … including a regular house cleaning schedule. You can simply settle into your regular house cleaning routine and do a little at a time, or you can schedule some extra time to get it all done at once.
Of course, if you’ve hired a professional house cleaning company to help keep your house clean, you should be able to schedule extra time with them to get those extra cleaning chores done while you do something else that you enjoy.
