The Fantastic Kitchen Cleaning Checklist


It is important to include your bathroom in your spring cleaning list. Unfortunately, we often overlook it, and this makes for the perfect opportunity for mould, limescale and bacteria to take over.

  • Unclog and clean your drains
  • Clean all cabinets, shelves, and other furniture
  • Organise your counters and cabinets
  • Scrub the grout
  • Vacuum and mop floor tiles
  • Clean the showerheads
  • Discard any old makeup, medicine, and other cosmetics


The corridors are another place that is often forgotten when you’re tidying your home. So, when you get around to your spring cleaning chores, make sure you take care of it as well.

  • Wipe and dust the treads, risers, balustrades, and handrails
  • Vacuum any doormats

Living room

The living room is one of the key areas of any home. It’s where the whole family gathers or where guests are entertained. That’s why it’s important to keep it in great shape. Add it to your spring cleaning checklist.

  • Dust and clean any mirrors, picture frames, and other decorative items
  • Vacuum and clean all upholstery
  • Dust and clean all drawers, shelves, cabinets and other furniture
  • Wash any cushions and blankets
  • Vacuum and clean your carpets

The next stop in our room by room cleaning checklist is the bedroom. Our place of rest is crucial not only to our health but our mind and general wellbeing, too. So, keeping it clean and tidy is vital.

  • Wash all beddings
  • Wash any pillows and cushions
  • Dust and clean all drawers, shelves, cabinets and other furniture
  • Dust and clean any mirrors, picture frames, and other decorative items
  • Vacuum and clean the carpets
  • Organise your wardrobe

And while you’re at it, why not declutter your storage closet, too?


Keeping the outside of your home presentable is just as important as keeping the inside clean and tidy. So, add it to your spring cleaning to-do list.

  • Sweep the front and back porch
  • Sweep, wash and stain your decking
  • Clean all outside windows you can reach
  • Clean any outdoor furniture
  • Rinse rubbish and recycling bins
  • Vacuum doormats
