Looking for printable cleaning checklists for every room in your house? You’ve found them! Here you’ll find a daily tidying routine to help keep your home looking lovely 24/7, weekly routines for every room, and even Spring Cleaning routines to help break down that enormous task.
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? Give these a try. You’ll get more 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 cleaning checklists to get your whole family involved.
- Hand someone a checklist and 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.
- 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
- Consider putting printed checklists in plastic page covers, so you can cross items off with a dry-erase pen or crayon as you do them, then wipe the page to use again next time.
- Don’t forget to stash your pages where you can easily find them. Tape them inside a door or cupboard in the room they focus on or stash them in your household binder if you have one.

Daily Cleaning Tasks
The daily cleaning routine is about tidying your home to keep it looking nice, even when you haven’t had time to clean. It looks like a lot of work to start with, but after a few days, it’ll take under 20 minutes to get your entire house looking like you just cleaned it. I promise!
Follow the nightly kitchen routine to “close the kitchen” for the night and to help avoid household pests like cockroaches. Your mornings will go more smoothly when you don’t start them looking at a mess.
Weekly House Cleaning Checklists
Whether you prefer cleaning one room each day or getting it all done on the weekend, these will guide you through every step.
Spring Cleaning is an enormous task, so it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. The routines below break the task down into manageable steps.
Do an entire room one day, or divide it over several afternoons. With a checklist, you’ll know you’ve got it all done.
Use these checklists to knock out small chores during idle minutes, such as when you’re on hold during a phone call or an annoying commercial comes on the television.
You’ll be amazed at how much you can get done without feeling like you’re doing any work.
