How to Create the Ultimate Cleaning Checklist

Cleaning your home can seem like a mammoth task and often, it’s hard to know where to start

This blog can tell you how to create a cleaning check list tailored for your home and to keep you on the right track each week!

For example, say you live in a 4 bedroom house in Chichester. Cleaning a property this big may be a bit daunting, especially as there will probably be a good sized kitchen, bathroom, dining room and lounge plus the 4 bedrooms. However, if you create a list and decide where to start then you will find it a lot easier. Create your list by prioritising what you definitely want to get done each time you clean your home and split it into rooms, like this:


Open windows
Dust and polish all surfaces, including skirting boards and behind furniture
Roll up any rugs before hoovering
Hoover all carpets and rugs
Hoover any fabric upholstery or use leather wipes to wipe down leather furniture

Wipe work surfaces and cupboards, start clockwise from the cooker/stove
Clean surfaces of all appliances
Clean the hob
Clean the inside and outside of microwave
Soak any removable grill plates or burners in the sink
Clean inside and around sink and buff taps
Sweep, hoover and mop the floor

Take out all bath mats, bins and laundry baskets
Take all products out from the bath and shower
Clean the bath and shower
Clean the toilet
