30 day clean house checklist 

I created this because I like the feeling of being able to check off “done” chores so it motivates me to keep going. I also need to be kept on track when I am doing a task that isn’t my favorite (who really LIKES cleaning anyway?).

This is great for staying on task for sure. You can see where I keep it here. If I am using it ongoing I will use laminating sheets so I don’t have to print out more than one.

30 Day Cleaning Challenge

When you clean your home in one big swoop a few times each year, you can minimize the time you spend daily and weekly on it. Cleaning tasks are never fun, let’s just admit that right now.

  • BUT when you have focused cleaning lists where you tackle one room at a time, deep cleaning each one as you go, you’ll be A LOT less overwhelmed.
  • Nobody wants to do Spring cleaning during the entire time your kids have off school. Y’all should go on a road trip and do something fun together instead!

Another great thing about thing about this house cleaning schedule is you can totally reuse it year after year.

This is what you do:

  1. Grab your free clean house checklist here from and print it right from home.
  2. There is a black and white cleaning printable version here too.
    1. You can opt to have it printed on card stock too so it will last a lot longer than paper (a great option if you don’t want to use the ink in your printer).
    2. You can also have this printed as a full sheet sticker which I love.

Then you can do one of 2 things:

30 Day Spring Cleaning

You can either:

  • Create a home organization binder where you slide this 30 day cleaning challenge inside a sheet protector.
    • Take your folder out every few months, use a wet erase marker right on top of your sheet protector to check off each task that is complete.
    • Then use a damp paper towel to erase marks and use it again throughout the year.
  • OR you can use a magnet to keep your house cleaning checklist on your fridge and use a marker to check off the tasks that you’ve completed
    • Once your printable is full of checks you know you’re done!

Either way works to keep you nice and organized that month. The more often you do it the quicker your list will get done for sure. Your thirty day challenge may take you just 20 days the next year.

Of course you can add additional items on the top too that may be specific to your home or garage.


One Month Cleaning Checklist

  1. Like…..dusting the top of all fans and hanging light fixtures in your home.

You may find this so helpful that you want to go even further. If so, create a more intensive deep cleaning house checklist room by room on your own.

  • Start slow though, the idea is to not get frustrated and want to quit halfway through.
  • Remember to break down tasks room by room. This will keep you organized and focused.
  • You can add other items to the list I created if you wanted, or omit others.

Every home is different but here are a few extra biannual chores you might want to add to the top of your list:

  1. Wipe down all crown molding with a damp cloth or all purpose cleaner.
  2. Clean front of all cabinets in kitchen and bathrooms well. Depending on the material you could use an all purpose cleaner or wood cleaner.
  3. Deep clean grout on floor and shower tiles. I love using an O Cedar mop to begin with and then coming in with a brush after that with a cleaner.
  4. Use glass cleaner on front of all wall pictures & wipe down frames
  5. Dry clean curtains

So what are you waiting for?? Get it printed and let us know how it’s going next month.

I'd love to be able to print these lists. Every time I click I just go in circles. When I pull up a list it is covered by pop ups that prevent me from printing. It's been pretty annoying to chase in circles.

I been on your website for about 30 min and I still can not figure out how to print your checklist. Is there an easier way?

You have a nice website. But I will not be back. There is Entirely too much advertising to be able to enjoy the content you are presenting. I am feeling frustrated just making it to the bottom of the first page.
