Follow a Cleaning Schedule

This week, we’re focusing on helping you keep your apartment in Phoenix, Arizona clean. We’ve put together a cleaning schedule of tasks to do daily, weekly, monthly, and periodically. If you tend to put cleaning off to the side, then a cleaning schedule is what can make all the difference. Of course, this guide is brief, and ultimately it’s up to you to determine what needs to be cleaned and how frequently it needs to be done. We hope, however, that this helps you keep things under control and that your apartment at Liv Ahwatukee is kept just the way that you want it.


Daily Cleaning

— Make bed

— Do dishes

— Do laundry, as needed (or simply sort and treat stains and odors)

— Sweep kitchen floor

— Sanitize and wipe down sinks and surfaces


Weekly Cleaning

— Mop floors

— Vacuum carpet

— Scrub bathroom and kitchen surfaces and appliances

— Clean mirrors

— Dust

— Wash bedding


Monthly Cleaning

— Dust blinds

— Clean light fixtures

— Clean large appliances (dishwasher, washing machines, etc.)

— Wash vents


Periodic Cleaning

— Garbage disposal: These can be cleaned by putting ice (frozen water, frozen lemon juice, or frozen vinegar) down the disposal. This will help get rid of bacteria under the plastic ring.

— Exterior kitchen cabinets: These can be cleaned using Dawn dish soap to remove greasy stains.

— Curtains and furniture: Use your vacuum to clean off dust and dirt from these fabrics.

— Light switches, doorknobs, and baseboards: These areas can get dirty and dusty. Use a wet washcloth or a dryer sheet to clean and sanitize them.

— Window screens: Take out the screens and wash in warm soapy water. You’ll be surprised at the difference it will make.


Cleaning your apartment is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. However, cleaning that is postponed can start to affect more than just the ambiance of the place — it can affect your schedule heavily. Stay on top of the cleaning by following a cleaning schedule. Doing so will make sure that things never pile up too much.
