Printable House Cleaning Schedule and Checklist
A house cleaning checklist can be a very useful tool when you need to get your home ready for a guest, or when you're doing your spring cleaning. But, for the day-to-day stuff, we've found that the best way to stay on top of our household chores is to schedule different tasks on different days of the week. So, instead of using a really long and daunting list for cleaning house, our weekly cleaning schedule breaks things down into nice manageable chunks. The House Cleaning Schedule Template below is pretty much what we use, but generalized and modified a bit so that you don't actually see how infrequently we do some of the chores. :-)
You can print a blank version of the house cleaning schedule using the PDF below to fill in by hand, or use the cleaning schedule template for Excel which contains the sample schedule that you see in the screenshot. To round things out, we've also prepared a general house cleaning checklist and spring cleaning checklist that you can either print as-is, or customize using the cleaning checklist templates.

House Cleaning Schedule Templatefor Excel, Word, PDF, and Google Sheets
This cleaning schedule template gives you a lot of flexibility to say exactly what you plan to do each day of the week, for 4 weeks (a month). You can also list daily and monthly reminders. We really like this cleaning schedule because it's a great way to break up the deep-cleaning tasks into manageable chunks. For example, Wednesday is our Kitchen cleaning day, but some things only need to be cleaned once a month, and this schedule makes it easy to keep track of what needs to be done and when. Just hang this on the fridge or inside of a cupboard door.

As you are creating your weekly cleaning schedule, this checklist can come in handy to make sure you are including everything you need to. Also, if you are playing catch-up and need to get ready for a visit from the in-laws, you can run through this checklist. This is a room-by-room cleaning checklist, so you can walk through your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and office, underlining the things that need to be done.

This version is very similar to the original cleaning checklist above except that it includes checkboxes for each day of the week in the DAILY list. It also prints in landscape orientation onto multiple pages.
