Get It Done Faster: A Room Cleaning Checklist

160

There are many psychological benefits behind cleaning and having a clean home. Whether you’re just trying to keep your home tidy, staging a home to be shown or even planning to move there are certain steps you can take to make sure each room is cleaned properly.

Following a checklist for cleaning is a great way to keep you focused, stay on schedule, and make sure each room is cleaned thoroughly. You can use the same checklist for every room in your house to help get the job done quicker and more efficiently.

Keep reading for our room cleaning checklist which can help you get the job done quickly and easily.

Don’t Stay in One Room

The easiest mistake that people make when it comes to cleaning their home is actually cleaning room by room. You can spend hours just on cleaning one room or you can spend the same amount of time cleaning your entire house. It probably sounds better to clean your entire house thoroughly in a short amount of time and it will definitely make you feel happier and more relaxed to get the job done.

The best way to get your house cleaned is to do all of the same tasks at once for every single room. For example, if you’re going to be vacuuming, then it will be better to vacuum in every single room instead of doing it at separate times.

Remove What Doesn’t Belong

Another important step when it comes to cleaning a room in your house is to remove any items that do not belong in each room. When you remove the items you should put them away in their correct places. This will help you stay organized so you won’t have to deal with those items later.

Getting rid of anything that doesn’t belong in the room will help you see what all you have to do. It will also help you to not get overwhelmed if the room is truly very messy.

Do Tasks That Require You to Wait

One thing about cleaning is that there are many tasks that will require you to wait a period of time before they get done. This means that you should put the dishes in the dishwasher, put in a load of clothes, spray any tough spots on counters or tables with an all-purpose cleaner, or even add cleaner to the toilet bowl first.

If you do these tasks early in your cleaning process, then you will have time to get everything around the same time. There’s nothing worse than thinking you’re finished cleaning just to realize you still need to put all of the clean dishes away.

Clear All the Clutter

Now that you’ve removed the items that don’t belong in the room it is time to put away all of the clutter. When you clean you should try to create an organizational system this way it will be easier to tidy up next time.

Take the time to put everything back into its correct place. You can go through each room in your house putting everything away.

Dust Everything

We all know that dust can form anywhere and everywhere over time so now is the time to make sure that everything is dusted properly. You will also want to make sure that you dust everything in your home before cleaning your floors because dust is known to get everywhere.

When it comes to dusting you should be making sure to get every corner, behind televisions, above pictures or cabinets, behind beds, and all around the doors in your home. You also may want to consider getting a front door replacement if your front door is older or looks a bit out of place. This is a great change to your home that can make it feel cleaner and look tidier.

Wipe Down Surfaces

After you dust everything, now is the time to wipe down all of the surfaces. Dust particles will probably have made their way over to the surfaces of your counters or tabletops so you will want to make sure you’re cleaning them well. You should also be going back and cleaning the tough spots on counters or tables as well as cleaning out your toilet.

Make sure you take the time to thoroughly wipe down each surface with an all-purpose cleaner. You may even want to get down and clean each table leg as spills or germs can end up down there as well. At this point, you should also be cleaning faucets, sinks, and showers.

Time for the Floors

Now it is time for the fun part which is cleaning all of your floors. To make sure that your home smells good and fresh you can also apply a carpet powder before vacuuming but make sure to let it sit for a little bit. When it comes to vacuuming you should move your furniture around and make sure that you’re getting into every single nook and cranny.

In the rooms that you have hardwood or tile floors, you should make sure you have a mop and a bucket. Fill the bucket with a bit of cleaner and the rest of the way with water. When disposing of the dirty mop bucket water you should do it outside as you will containment the sinks that you’ve already cleaned.

Complete the Finishing Touches

At this point, your entire home should be looking pretty spotless so now you should just focus on the finishing touches. This could mean folding and putting away laundry, emptying the dishwasher, or other tasks that you’ve put off until now.

Your final step should be taking out the garbage. During the cleaning process, you have probably loaded your trash full of different things that you’ve thrown away so you should definitely save this step for last.

Room Cleaning Checklist

When it comes to keeping the rooms in your home clean there are tons of different ways you can go about it. Use our room cleaning checklist to help you stay focused, organized, and make sure that each room gets cleaned thoroughly.
