Tidiness and cleanliness in the home are important to develop a good harmony in any home environment. It helps you to improve your quality of life, leaving behind those feelings of fatigue, stress or depression that clutter usually causes, thus helping to avoid problems caused by dust, humidity and dust mites.
Fortunately, nowadays the advance of technology has allowed Apps to come into our lives to simplify even the cleaning of the home. For this reason, we have prepared an article, where you will learn about the best house cleaning apps that will help you keep your home clean and tidy.
1. Clean House
This application is one of the ones I like the most because it reminds you of the daily cleaning tasks that you set yourself in a very simple list. You can set small goals such as cleaning the floor, cleaning the windows or picking up the laundry, so that it is not difficult for you to achieve them. You can repeat them as often as you want, for example once a week, and set the date when you want to start repeating the task. You can even visualise the history of the task.
And it’s completely free. Currently you can only find it on Android devices. The only drawback I see is that it is not in multiple languages, but it is very intuitive and not difficult to use.
2. Cozi Family Organizer
If you want an app a bit more elaborate than the previous one, this one is perfect, because not only can you create your to-do list, but you can also share the calendar, see the times in more detail and set a traffic light of colours depending on the person who has to do it. An advantage for sharing cleaning tasks with the whole family or your flatmates in a very convenient way. You can even use the synchronisation with the Google calendar, from your mobile or computer.
It also incorporates many more options such as writing the shopping list, keeping track of your expenses and including or selecting recipes, among other things. So it is a very complete application for the home.
You can use the free version, which is more than enough in most cases. However, if you want a more complete functionality and all the possibilities offered, you must access the paid version.
This application is designed to encourage the youngest members of the household to do some cleaning tasks in a fun way. It allows you to include all the members of the family and assign them tasks that you can then rate to motivate them. It is very interesting, because if they reach a certain number of points, they can get prizes according to what you set, such as going to the beach or inviting their friends to watch a movie at home with popcorn.
It shows you a colour chart for the whole month so that you can compare the work done by everyone at a glance. It also allows you to make shopping lists, see a calendar of chores, set alarms, etc. Although it is not completely in various languages, it is a step up from the previous ones that most of it is translated, as they are still trying to establish the language completely in the app. And you can download it for free on both iOS and Android.
If you have a big house, this app is really interesting, because it divides it by rooms: living room, kitchen, bedrooms, bathroom, etc. and marks the progress of each area with colours. So you won’t easily forget which tasks to write down in your weekly calendar. Moreover, there are no schedules to assign, so you can do it when it suits you best, without getting too stressed, which is a common reason to stop using it.
A great advantage of this app is that it is completely in English! In general, the free version is fine, but you can extend it with a small fee to, for example, share it with another person, although you can include different people on the same mobile. However, you can only download it for free on Android, on iOS you have to pay to get it (apart from the Premium subscription, if you want it).
5. Cleaning Checklist
If you don’t want to get complicated with difficult to manage apps and you’re just looking to create simple checklists, I highly recommend this version. It’s easy to use: you create a task and when it’s finished you hit the check and go on to the next one. Quick and uncomplicated. You can organise it by room or share the list with someone else, although you need to log in with an email address.
It’s free, but only available for download on Android at the moment.
