The purpose of this list is to help you adequately plan and schedule your housework.

It does this by giving you a big picture view of what is needed to clean your home, and at what frequency.

Throughout the checklist I have provided links to more detailed lists for various areas of the house, and time frames.

You can even scroll to the bottom of this page for a link to a free printable version of the whole house checklist!

Daily House Cleaning Tasks

There is not too much actual "cleaning" in the daily house cleaning tasks, except in the kitchen (or if there is a spilling emergency).

The main principle on a daily basis is to keep things neat and tidy, and just like your mother always told you, "pick up after yourself" and "put away your toys!"

  • Tidy and neaten each room in the house
  • Clean up kitchen after meals
  • Deal with spills immediately
  • Put away (in a designated place) everything that comes into the home (such as mail, groceries, etc.), and empty anything that has become too full (like overflowing trash, or throwing away an old broken spoon once you purchase the new one)

Weekly House Cleaning Tasks

A weekly cleaning schedule is the heart of keeping a clean home.

This portion of the house cleaning checklist is actually where most of the cleaning in your home takes place.

And when I say "cleaning" below in the checklist I mean the normal things, such as dusting, mopping, vacuuming, and scrubbing.

Of course, you don't have to do all the cleaning in one day, unless you want to. In fact, I suggest spacing it out throughout the week so it is not so overwhelming.

Quarterly House Cleaning Tasks

The tasks listed below as quarterly and biannually are important, or they wouldn't be listed, but they don't have the same impact on your daily life and comfort as the daily and weekly tasks listed above.

If you are in a time crunch, and need to prioritize, skip these tasks and focus on the daily and weekly parts of the house cleaning checklist.

However, let them slide for too long and things will begin to deteriorate, comfort wise.

  • Sweep garage, basement and attic
  • Wash or air pillows
  • Wash windows

Biannual House Cleaning Tasks

These tasks are typically things we do during spring cleaning and fall cleaning.

Listed below are only the most important.

  • Air and turn mattresses
  • Clean drapes and curtains
  • Wash rugs and clean carpets
  • Clean basement, garage and attic
