Your Simple But Comprehensive Home Deep Cleaning Checklist


Your daily vacuuming, countertop wiping, and coffee table dusting are great ways to keep your home spic and span. But if you want to see your kitchen surfaces gleam under the light, your metal sink reflects your image, and your carpet returns to its original color, you would need to perform a deep clean.

Most people would hire a professional deep cleaning company to maintain their homes. But if you find cleaning therapeutic and are up for the challenge, here is a checklist of things you need to clean and conquer during your quest to a spotless household.

 

Room-By-Room Cleaning Checklist

Here is the list of things you need to clean from room to room. Remember to add extra elbow grease to make them truly shine.

Bathroom

Bathrooms can be tricky to clean. Get your gloves, bucket, old toothbrush, microfiber cloth, baking soda, and vinegar—this is going to be a challenge.

Areas to clean:

  • Bathtub and bathtub fixtures
  • Bath mats
  • Doors, door frames, doorknobs
  • Floor and wall grout
  • Light fixtures
  • Showerhead
  • Shower curtains and curtain liners
  • Sink and sink fixtures
  • Toilet
  • Windows and window treatments
  • Walls, floors, and ceilings

 

Kitchen

Deep cleaning kitchens have the same difficulty as cleaning bathrooms. But instead of battling hard water stains and scum, you need to face food and grease stains. Take extra care in cleaning the kitchen because it is where you prepare your food after all.

Areas to clean:

  • Baseboards
  • Cabinet shelves and doors
  • Countertops
  • Dishwasher
  • Doors, door frames, doorknobs
  • Kitchen island, table, and chairs 
  • Kitchen sink
  • Light fixtures
  • Trash and recycling bins
  • Oven, microwave, and stovetops
  • Other kitchen appliances and gadgets
  • Rugs
  • Walls, floors, and ceilings
  • Windows and window treatments

 

Bedroom

Before you deep clean your room, you need to declutter first. Donate or sell things that you no longer use but are still valuable. Throw away the things that have fallen into severe disrepair or are plain rubbish, like product boxes, food wrappers, etc.

Areas to clean:

  • Appliances and gadgets
  • Baseboards
  • Carpets
  • Closets and dressers
  • Comforters
  • Doors, door frames, doorknobs
  • Duvets
  • Dust ruffles
  • Headboard
  • Light fixtures
  • Mattress and mattress frame
  • Pillows
  • Walls, floors, and ceilings
  • Windows and window treatments

 

Living Room

Tackling the living room will be easier for you. You’re used to vacuuming the carpet and furniture in your living room, so deep cleaning living rooms will feel familiar. You just need to be extra thorough in cleaning.

Areas to clean:

  • Appliances and gadgets
  • Baseboards
  • Carpets
  • Coffee table and side table
  • Cushions and throw pillows
  • Entertainment system cabinet
  • Furniture upholstery and legs
  • Light fixtures
  • Walls, floors, and ceilings
  • Windows and window treatments

 

Planning a House Deep Cleaning

Unless you employ the help of family and friends, you cannot do deep cleaning an entire house in a single day. If you are adamant about doing it alone, you can divide your checklist into more manageable weekly and monthly tasks. It means focusing on one room a week or two rooms a month.

But remember to be systematic with your cleaning. Gather all your supplies before you start, always wear protective gear when necessary, and be methodical in your cleaning technique.

 

Conclusion

Cleaning a home is a chore, but deep cleaning is a battle. Thoroughly cleaning from top to bottom may be a challenge. However, it is possible to accomplish. You only have to plan early, declutter before you deep clean, prepare all your cleaning supplies, and be organized with the cleaning.

If you feel overwhelmed with this checklist, don’t worry. You can hire a deep cleaning company to clean your home for you professionally. Forget about going on your knees to clean the bathroom floor grout. Go have a nice day out and return to a house that looks new!
