How to Create a Maintenance Log You'll Stick To

Raise your hand if you enjoy cleaning! While some people truly do find joy in tidying up their space, the vast majority of people loath the chore of cleaning their apartments. To help make this task a bit more digestible—especially if you are a renter who lives with roommates—we’re sharing some ways to create a maintenance/chore log that is easy to follow and use:

Keep it Simple

You don’t need to reinvent the wheel when it comes to creating a maintenance log for your  apartment. Instead, focus on the basics. We suggest making one log that covers all rooms in your apartment, breaking things down by shared chores. For example, your log can include vacuuming, dusting, cleaning windows/mirrors, laundry, and other overarching tasks.

Organize by Weekday

We also suggest organizing your chore chart by weekday, saving Friday and your weekends for rest and relaxation. Here’s an example chart:

  1. Monday: Dust and empty the dishwasher
  2. Tuesday: Vacuum 
  3. Wednesday: Organize shared spaces (put things back where they belong) and take out the trash
  4. Thursday: Laundry day

This will help you create a routine that’s habit, which can minimize stress around certain tasks and prioritize your personal time. If you live with roommates, this section can also include roommate names; remember to cycle through responsibilities every few weeks to share the work.
