How to make your own house cleaning checklist

October 20, 2019

Whether you enjoy cleaning or not, there’s one thing that always remains true … someone has to do it. If the person cleaning in your house happens to be you, then you should definitely create a checklist that is simple to follow. More importantly, this checklist should take into consideration the different rooms in your home and how to best clean them without running back and forth across your entire house. After all, the quicker you get your cleaning finished, the sooner you can enjoy activities that actually excite you. 

Here’s a quick look at a few tips for making a house cleaning checklist, and don’t forget that when cleaning your home, you’ll want to use eco-friendly products. Here at Mopfrog of Brooklyn, we center all of your cleaning practices around green cleaning methods. 

1) Choose Which Days are Best for Cleaning

The first step in creating a realistic home cleaning checklist is choosing the days that you can clean. For instance, do you have time to clean 30 minutes a day, seven days a week? Or does a routine of cleaning one hour a day, three days a week work better for your schedule? Once you have decided on the days you can clean, you can then add cleaning tasks to each day. 

2) Clean All Bedrooms on the Same Day

You should be cleaning at least three days a week, if possible. On one of these days, you should plan on washing bed linens and cleaning each bedroom in your home. Even if no one sleeps in some of the beds, the linens need to be changed regularly to prevent a musty smell from developing. 

3) Clean All Bathrooms on the Same Day 

The next day that you tackle cleaning, make sure to clean all bathrooms. Deep cleaning your bathrooms will consist of washing out the showers, cleaning the toilets, and wiping down the vanities. Also, don’t forget the floors. 

4) Clean the Kitchen and Utility Room

Lastly, you’ll need to spend a day cleaning your kitchen and utility room. Wipe down all appliances as well as run a cleaning mode through your dishwasher and washer. And don’t forget, the more you keep these rooms clean during the week, the less you’ll have to clean on your cleaning days.
