Cleaning Checklists

Looking for printable cleaning checklists for every room in your house? You’ve found them! Here you’ll find a daily, weekly, monthly, and even Spring Cleaning routines to incorporate in your house cleaning schedule.

House Cleaning Checklists Work!

Have you ever spent a few hours or even an entire day cleaning the house, only to look around and feel like you didn’t get anything done? Try adding these to your house cleaning schedule. You’ll get more done in less time, and you’ll know nothing got overlooked.

They Keep Cleaning On Track

The great thing about using a checklist is knowing that you aren’t forgetting any steps. If you get interrupted while cleaning — and, if you’re a parent, you know interruptions are almost guaranteed — you can easily pick up right where you were without skipping a thing.

They Can Make Cleaning a Team Effort

There are two ways to use printable checklists to get your whole family involved.

  1. Hand one to someone point them at the room they need to clean. Since the list outlines the entire process, they’ll know what and how to do it.
  2. Or, assign each person a step. Each routine contains multiple boxes representing tasks, with individual steps needed to complete that task. Divide the steps between family members and work your way through as a group.

Tips to Reuse the Checklists

  • Make them reusable. Print the ones you want to use in your house cleaning schedule, then put them in plastic page covers. As you work, cross items off with a dry-erase pen or crayon, then wipe the page when you’re done.
  • Stash your pages where you can easily find them. Tape a checklist inside a door or cupboard in the room it’s for, so it’s ready to use. Or keep them together in your household binder if you prefer.
