Help me construct the ultimate home cleaning/maintenance schedule. I want to know how often things need to be cleaned, changed, or updated in your home?
I am a fairly new homeowner. I was inspired recently by the definitive cleaning schedule found here
. What I want to do is go one step further and put together a spreadsheet that lists different items or tasks that I can update when I have replaced/cleaned something, and then will give me the date for the next time that item will need to be replaced or cleaned.
The link I have above is about cleaning. However, I know there are lots of other maintenance issues that could be added to a spreadsheet like this. For instance, how often do I need to replace my air filter? How often should I switch out my toothbrush? I have heard that you should replace your pillows after a certain length of time. I found this
prior question about recurring calendar events. It has some really good stuff in it, however for most of the ideas people provide, they don't specify how often these things need to be done. I would really like to know how often I need to replace my smoke detector batteries for instance.
Also, if you have ideas for the best way to set up a spreadsheet like this, I would also be interested in that.
