Personal House Cleaning Checklist

Keeping a clean and tidy home helps the house to feel more inviting. While it might not always be easy to include daily cleaning into your life, it’s always worth it in the grand scheme of things.


Dusting should be done both wet and dry. Take a dry cloth and run it over appliances and electronics. Use your wet rag with furniture polish to clean tables, entertainment centers and chairs. Don’t forget to use your extendable duster to get in those hard-to-reach areas up high, like your ceiling fan blades.


You should get in the habit of sweeping your home everyday, as you’ll be amazed at how much dirt and debris your house accumulates. If sweeping has become a real chore, consider buying a robotic floor sweeper and duster that does the work for you.

Mopping and/or Vacuuming

Depending on the type of flooring in your home, it’s essential to give it a thorough clean at least once each week. Empty vacuum bags and canisters to improve suction power and always use a lightly damp mop with clean water on your hardwood or tile flooring.

Kitchen and Bathroom Wipe Down

Once or twice a week, go through your kitchen and bathrooms to give them a good wipe down. If it helps, keep a bucket with cleaning supplies in the room it’ll be used to prevent excuses of it not being convenient. Don’t forget to wipe those unseen places like underneath the toilet, behind the shower curtain or underneath your kitchen microwave.
