Turning Challenges into Triumphs

Yes, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), now more commonly known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), can have effects on a person’s housekeeping capabilities.

Explore these housekeeping hacks for ADHD warriors, designed to streamline tasks, boost productivity, and create a more manageable living space, easing the daily challenges faced by individuals with ADHD.

While the symptoms of ADHD can vary from person to person, some common challenges related to housekeeping include:

Difficulty with Organization:

Individuals with ADHD may struggle with organizing their belongings and keeping their living space tidy. They might find it hard to create and maintain a system for arranging items, leading to clutter and disorganization.


People with ADHD often have difficulty starting and completing tasks. This can make it challenging to begin housekeeping chores and follow through to completion.

Time Management:

Individuals with ADHD may have difficulties with time management, underestimating how long tasks take or becoming easily distracted. This can impact their ability to allocate time for cleaning and housekeeping responsibilities.


Forgetfulness is a common symptom of ADHD. People with ADHD may forget to perform daily housekeeping tasks or struggle to remember where they placed items.


Individuals with ADHD are easily distracted by their environment, which can interfere with their ability to focus on housekeeping chores.

Lack of Attention to Detail:

Due to difficulties with sustained attention, individuals with ADHD may overlook small details in housekeeping tasks, leading to incomplete or less effective cleaning.

Executive Functioning Challenges:

ADHD can affect executive functioning skills, which include planning, prioritizing, and problem-solving. These skills are essential for effective housekeeping.

  • Using visual cues and reminders, such as checklists or sticky notes.
  • Setting timers or alarms to help with time management.
  • Creating a structured cleaning schedule and sticking to it.
  • Seeking support from family members or professional organizers.
