How to Clean Your Home: A Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Start by decluttering. Clear surfaces, floors, and countertops of any items that don’t belong or that you no longer need.
  2. Make a cleaning plan. Decide which rooms or areas of your home you want to clean and in what order. This will help you stay organized and focused as you work.
  3. Gather your supplies. You’ll need basic cleaning supplies such as a broom and dustpan, a mop, cleaning cloths, and cleaning solutions.
  4. Begin with the bedrooms. Make the beds, put away clothes and shoes, and put any dirty laundry in the hamper. Dust surfaces, vacuum or sweep the floors, and clean the windows.
  5. Move on to the bathrooms. Clean the toilets, sinks, and shower or tub. Wipe down the counters, mirrors, and tile. Sweep or mop the floors.
  6. Clean the living areas. Dust surfaces, vacuum or sweep the floors, and clean the windows. If you have a fireplace, be sure to clean it out as well.
  7. Tackle the kitchen. Clean the sink and counters, wipe down the appliances and cabinets, and sweep or mop the floor.
  8. Finally, do a quick check of your home to make sure you didn’t miss anything. Once you’re satisfied that everything is clean, put away your supplies and enjoy your freshly cleaned home.
