Free Printable Deep Cleaning House Checklist! (And Tips!)  - Proline Range Hoods

We’ve all been there. The laundry starts piling up, the dishes are towering by the sink, and the dust has started to gather on surfaces throughout your home. And, this can all happen in a short amount of time!

With so many of us working all day, the last thing we want to do is come home and clean the whole house out.

But, if you don’t keep on top of your cleaning tasks, your house will soon start to show the effects.

Even if you have fallen behind with cleaning duties, there’s no need to panic.

Yes, it can be frightening to look at how much cleaning is in front of you, but with a cleaning checklist, you can work your way through to transform your home into a sparking clean sanctuary.

Today, we are going to guide you through how to make a deep cleaning checklist for your house so you can finally say goodbye to that mess and hello to a new, fresh abode.

Let’s get started!

Deep Cleaning House Checklist

Once you have all your supplies ready, it’s time to check that checklist.

Below, we have compiled a deep cleaning checklist for your entire home.

To start, we recommend cleaning your kitchen, then the bathroom, or your living room.

This is because these rooms tend to become dirtier than others, and where your family spends most of their time.

Some Deep Cleaning Top Tips

It can be easy to become overwhelmed when facing the mountain of cleaning ahead of you.

But, by focusing on one task at a time, you can tick off your checklist, step by step. See it as one thing at a time, rather than a whole list.

Also, go to one room at a time. Do not tackle your whole house at once.

As you will see with our checklist, we will be focusing on rooms, one by one. Therefore, it will be easier and less stressful for you.

You should not confuse decluttering with deep cleaning. Do not attempt both at the same time.

Instead, do one first and then the other afterward.

If your home is very dirty, don’t rush things. Take your cleaning tasks slowly.

If you do too much in one go, you will soon become overwhelmed.

We suggest starting with your kitchen, as this is the space where you will typically see the biggest difference after a deep clean.

This will also give you the motivation to carry on and make a change to each room you tackle.

Finally, it’s your home, so go about it as you wish. But, we recommend working in a cozy environment.

So, put on some motivational, or calming music (whatever you love most). Wear some comfortable clothes and start cleaning!

Having the right mindset before you start cleaning can significantly help.

The more relaxed you are, the easier and more fun it will be (Yes, cleaning can be fun!)

In Summary

Deep cleaning your home is something most of us put off due to lack of time or simply because we don't want to do it!

By making a checklist and following it, though, you can go from one room to another and gradually clean your entire house.
