Daily, Weekly & Monthly Cleaning Checklists + Free Printable PDFs

The less you have to think about what to clean and when, the better.

But there’s a lot to remember.

Are you hitting all the tasks you need to, or is something falling through the cracks?

And what about the tasks that don’t need to be done every week,  or even every month. How do you remember those?

House cleaning checklists of course!

Keeping your home consistently clean means that some tasks end up being done every day.  Many of these center around the kitchen and bathroom, where it’s important to keep things sanitary (see our kitchen cleaning checklist and bathroom cleaning checklist).  Others are important to keep a sense of order instead of chaos as we go about our daily activities.

  • Wash & put away dishes
  • Clean countertops
  • Wipe down & clean kitchen sink and faucet
  • Wipe down stovetop
  • Sweep & spot clean kitchen floor
  • Empty trash & recycling
  • Wipe down bathroom counters, sinks, faucets
  • Make the beds
  • Tidy clutter hotspots

Weekly Cleaning Checklist

Not everything needs to be cleaned every day (thankfully!).  Some cleaning tasks can be done on roughly a weekly basis.  Remember this is personal, so your schedule may vary.  But this list is a good place to start until you find what can be done more or less often.

  • General dusting
  • Clean kitchen appliance exteriors
  • Wipe down kitchen cabinets fronts
  • Sanitize kitchen drain
  • Empty expired items from refrigerator and freezer
  • Clean microwave interior
  • Vacuum and clean floors
  • Clean trash area & wipe out bins
  • Declutter & tidy visible areas
  • Clean showers, tubs, toilets, counters, sinks, faucets, mirrors 
  • Shake or wash rugs
  • Empty trash & recycling

Monthly Cleaning Checklist

Monthly cleaning tasks can be tricky to remember because they’re less frequent.  Deep cleaning your house is much easier to do if you keep up with it consistently. So having a list of tasks and adding them to your regular cleaning schedule is an easy way to stay on track.  

  • Extended dusting
  • Wash blankets, mattress covers, comforters and duvets
  • Launder washable rugs
  • Wash shower curtain and liner
  • Clean dishwasher interior
  • Clean washing machine and dryer interiors
  • Clean mirrors
