Make habits. Once a day during workweek, have everyone in the household spend only 5 or 10 in different rooms do some kind of general cleaning. 10 minutes is nothing out of a 24 hr day, sure everyone has things to do, but once you get in the habit, you will think nothing of it and you know everyone could take a few after work/school to do a simple chore like one person wipe the bathroom sink, another wipe down the countertop...etc. That few minutes per person, each day makes a HUUUGGGEEE difference in the long run as it is much easier to clean later.
