Kehrwoche

In build­ings with mul­ti­ple fam­i­lies, a sys­tem has been put in place to avoid hav­ing to hire a cleaner. A sign that says “kehrwoche” will be hung on the door of the fam­ily as­signed for a week to keep com­mu­nal spa­ces free of trash or snow. This word, lit­er­ally trans­lated as sweep week, refers to the ro­ta­tion of sweep­ing and clean­ing du­ties in the south­ern part of Ger­many.
