Apartment Cleaning Checklist

A process for apartment cleaning will help you stay organized so you don’t miss out on anything. If you’re not a seasoned cleaner, you may not know precisely what keeping a home well-maintained and clean entails. If this seems overwhelming, you might choose apartment cleaning services. There are a lot of products to buy to clean your home, and the investment might be the same as just hiring someone to do it for you. You can also give this extensive list of tasks to the cleaner you hire.

Cleaning supplies needed:

Having the proper tools to help you clean your home is essential. There are different products for different rooms based on what kind of dirt and grime build-up they get. You don’t have to go with products containing many chemicals. There are natural solutions, and in fact, some apartment cleaning services only use these. Here are the cleaners you’d want to consider purchasing if you’re going to clean your home thoroughly:

  • All-purpose cleaner

  • Bleach

  • Heavy-duty oven cleaner

  • Window and glass cleaner

  • White Vinegar

  • Microfiber cloths

  • Scrubbies

  • Sponges

  • Vacuum Cleaner with attachments

  • Carpet Cleaner (optional)

  • Stainless steel cleaner (optional)

  • Broom

  • Mop

  • Toilet Brush

Bedroom Cleaning

For your bedroom, you’ll want to dust the furniture and any surfaces like your decor, ceiling fan, pictures, around your windows, and lamps. Pick up clothes off the floor and put them away or in a laundry hamper. Collect any garbage that might be lying around. Vacuum the floors, including under the bed and your closet.

Living Room Cleaning

Start by dusting any surfaces. Electronics tend to attract a lot of dust, so the shelving and electronics will need to be dusted. Clear your coffee table and clean/dust it and any side tables—vacuum furniture with your upholstery attachment. Sweep, Swiffer, or vacuum your floors, depending on whether they’re wood, tiles, or carpet. Clean windows, window sills, and window treatments. Suppose you have blinds, clean every slat.

Kitchen Cleaning

Clean all surfaces with a cleaner that kills germs. Wipe kitchen cabinets inside and outside with a cloth soaked in vinegar and water or an all-purpose cleaner. Wash any dishes or use the dishwasher. Clean the stovetop depending on what kind of material it’s made from. If it’s stainless steel, there are special cleaners for that. If it’s a glass top, you should use the right cleaner to avoid leaving scratches. Cleaning the oven will depend on whether you have a self-cleaning oven. If you have to clean it yourself, you’ll need to spray a toxic cleaner in the oven and take some time away from being in the kitchen.

You may need to use a wire brush to get the build-up off. When cleaning your fridge, first go through and throw out any expired foods. Then you’ll take any removable items out and put them in the sink with water and mild, scent-free dishwasher detergent. Using a microfibre cloth, you can clean the other parts of the fridge’s inside with the same dishwasher detergent. Sweep and mop the floors, ensuring you get under the tight spots in the refrigerator and oven.

Bathroom Cleaning

Wipe down the sink, faucet, and countertops. Clean the vanity mirror with glass cleaner. Scrub the toilet inside and out, and clean the shower and tub. Depending on the materials that make up your bathroom floor, walls, and shower stall, you may need to eliminate grime, dirt, and mould. Certain surfaces are going to require certain cleaners. When you opt for apartment cleaning services, they will know what your bathroom needs are. We recommend finishing any stainless steel fixtures with a window cleaner spray and a wipe-down. This makes them shine. Swiffer, sweep, or vacuum your floors and then mop them.

Hopefully, you find these steps helpful for cleaning all rooms in your home. If this seems overly daunting and you don’t have the time or the scope, we suggest apartment cleaning services, and they will regularly do all these tasks professionally.
