Maintenance Schedule

Hi, I'm a new Ultimaker 2 Extended owner.  I use my machine rather consistently and so I wanted to put together a more efficient way to maintain it than "oh look the print is messing up what do I need to adjust/replace? Let's go through every single possibility to figure it out."

So my question to you more experienced users is what kind of schedule should I keep in mind for maintaining different parts of the printer?  These would include:

Atomic Cleaning

PTFE coupler replacement

Reapplying glue (I do this every time to be safe but is it necessary?)

Scrubbing down build plate

Lubricating X and Y axes

Lubricating Z axes

Tightening Belts

And any other part of the machine that might need occasional attention.

I feel like having an hour range after which I know I need to check something would keep everything running a lot smoother.  I'd waste less filament and also spend less time troubleshooting.  So any tips?
