  • Other Rooms Checklist

Many homes have one or more special rooms that cater to the family’s specific needs. These rooms may include a children’s playroom, a home office, a fitness room, an enclosed porch or sunroom and more. The specific chores that these rooms require vary, and these are some of the special steps that may need to be followed:

  • Clean electronics
  • Wipe down fitness equipment
  • Clean drawer and cabinet faces
  • Sanitize children’s playthings
  • Remove smudges on glass surfaces
  • Wipe down shelves

  • Before You Start Cleaning

At Cleanzen, we know how labor-intensive and exhausting it can be to thoroughly and properly clean every room in a home. You understandably do not want to gloss over any important areas. If you are ready to tackle your housecleaning needs yourself, ensure that you have all of the cleaning supplies and equipment that you may need for comprehensive sanitation across the entire space. These items may include:

  • A vacuum
  • A mop or wet vac
  • Dust cloths
  • Safe cleaning products, such as window cleaner, dusting products, toilet cleaners, countertop and bath disinfectant products and more
  • Paper towels
  • A sponge or scrub brush
  • A toilet brush

You also should make yourself as comfortable as possible. Many people could easily spend a few hours or longer giving their home the full attention that it needs. This is a time when you may be on your hands and knees, reaching high over your head, bending over and more. Dress comfortably. Some cleaning products can stain clothes, so avoid wearing anything that you do not want to potentially ruin. Turn on music that you enjoy that may help you to pass the time while you work. You also should allocate enough time to address all of your household chores at once, if possible.
