The ultimate guide to the best house cleaning checklist - 5 simple steps for a perfect home:

What’s a professional house cleaning checklist?

A professional house cleaning checklist is a document with a detailed list of the things that need to be cleaned throughout the house. A professional house cleaning checklist allows you to clean in a clear, methodical manner. And it also saves you a lot of time when cleaning your home.

How to use our step-by-step house cleaning checklist to professionally clean your home: In 5 easy steps

Having a clean home is one of the most satisfying things that you can do for yourself. Because a clean home not only feels more comfortable to be in, but it also offers protection from allergens, dust mites, mould, and other pathogens. Take a look at these 5 easy steps to learn how to professionally your home in as little time as possible.

STEP 1: Tidying and organising.

User-uploaded Image

Before you start the cleaning, the first thing that you’ll need to do is to tidy up the place and to organise anything that is out of place. We recommend you carry a rubbish bin or a basket with you as you do this. Scan the room from top to bottom, and from left to right. If you notice anything that’s out of place, dispose of it in the rubbish bin or inside the basket to be relocated elsewhere. By first tidying and organising the place, you’ll save yourself a tone time later on and you’ll make it easier for yourself also when you start to clean.

STEP 2: Clean from top to bottom.

Now, when you start to clean, there are several techniques that you need to follow for the best cleaning results. These cleaning techniques are great because they need minimal effort from you. But at the same time, they give you the best cleaning results for your effort. One of these first techniques that we’ll teach you is to clean from top to bottom.

Why we recommend you clean using the top to bottom technique is because dust and dirt fall from top to bottom. And by using the top-to-bottom approach, you’ll not only be effective in your cleaning but you also won’t have to worry about cleaning the same area twice.

In the kitchen, for example, using the top-to-bottom approach, you’ll start by cleaning the kitchen cabinets first. And then you make your way down to the countertop tops and to the rest of the kitchen appliances afterwards (see photo above).

STEP 3: Clean from left to right

The third-speed cleaning technique that we’ll teach you is to clean from left to right. Start by cleaning the furthest left corner of the room or area that you’re working on, and then move to the furthest right corner. This approach is effective because it makes sure that you don’t miss any spots or sections of the house. And every corner of your house is going to look professionally. Because you’re working in a clear, consistent manner.

STEP 4: Clean from front to back.

Next, when you’ve finished cleaning your kitchen, bathroom and all the high reach areas of the house and you’re now ready to move on to the floors, we recommend you start cleaning from the front of the room and then make your way to the back, or out of the door.

By implementing the front to back cleaning technique, you ensure that the areas you’ve already cleaned, stay clean. And that they also get plenty of time to dry and ready to be used shortly after.

STEP 5: Sit back, relax and enjoy your sparkling clean home. You’ve earned it!

Cleaning is hard work, and after you’ve finished cleaning, it is now time for you to sit back, relax and enjoy your sparkling clean home.

Cleaning is hard work!

Of course, cleaning is therapeutic, and it also has many added benefits. Such as reducing stress and keeping you relaxed.

But nonetheless, cleaning is hard work. And if you’re someone who’s busy with work, family and extracurricular activities, then you probably don’t have the time of day to do the cleaning yourself. And you’d much rather spend your free time out and about exploring Sydney with your family and friends. Then we recommend you let us take care of the cleaning for you. So that you can spend your free time doing what you love. And with those you love the most.

With our professional house cleaning checklist, we’ll give your home the same excellent cleaning results with a personal touch.
