Looking for printable cleaning checklists for every room in your house? You’ve found them! Here you’ll find daily, weekly, monthly, and even Spring Cleaning routines to incorporate into your house cleaning schedule.
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 clean more in less time, and you’ll know nothing got overlooked.
The great thing about using a checklist is that you don’t forget 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.
How to Use House Cleaning Checklists
Make them reusable. Print the checklists you want to use in your house cleaning schedule, then slip them into 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. Stash your cleaning checklists in a household binder if you use one or in the room where you’ll use them. I keep a copy of the nightly kitchen cleaning checklist taped inside a cabinet door to make it easy for family members to help tidy up at the end of the night.
Get your family involved! Using cleaning checklists makes it easy for everyone in the family to help. For example, with older kids, give them a specific room’s checklist, and they’ll know what and how to clean it. Or, to make cleaning day a family project, work together on a checklist. Each one contains multiple boxes, so you can go step by step or assign each family member a box.

Daily Cleaning Checklists
The daily cleaning routine is about tidying your home to keep it looking nice, even when you haven’t had time to clean. Then use the nightly kitchen routine to “close the kitchen” for the night and help avoid household pests. Your mornings will go more smoothly when you don’t start them looking at a mess.
Weekly House Cleaning Checklists
It’s important to clean your home’s main rooms every week, even if they don’t look filthy. When you clean before things look messy, it goes much faster. Weekly cleaning also allows you to notice problems like pests, mold, or mildew before they become serious issues.
So, use these weekly house cleaning checklists as part of your routine, whether you prefer doing one room a day or doing them all on the weekend. You’ll work faster, clean more thoroughly, and know you didn’t overlook a thing.
Spring Cleaning Checklists
Spring Cleaning is an enormous task, and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. But you know what they say about tackling any big task: you do it one small bit at a time. That’s also true when it comes to Spring Cleaning — or Deep Cleaning — your home.
The printable Spring Cleaning Checklists below help you break it down into manageable steps. But don’t feel like you need to wait until Spring — there’s no reason you can’t use these for Fall Cleaning, too!
