A Monthly Housekeeping Routine for Thorough
Year-Round Cleaning


Some tasks only need to be done once or twice a year. The problem is that we forget to do them once or twice a year.

Or else, we tend to save it all for spring cleaning, which makes spring cleaning such a daunting chore that it doesn’t occur, either.

I’ve found the best plan is to break down annual and seasonal tasks by month and tackle them on a daily or weekly basis. 

Nothing gets too backed up, and things eventually get done. I’ve also found that concentrating on one room or area each month is more rewarding because you can see the results.

Here’s the March house cleaning checklist schedule that works best for me:




1.  A clean, well-lighted place...

A clean, well-lighted place begins with clean light fixtures. 

Clean ceiling fixtures, lamps, sconces; anything that has a bulb.

2.  And while you're up there...

And while you're up there, make sure your March house cleaning checklist includes cleaning the fan blades of built-up dust, too.

3.  Floor show:

Clean hardwood floors, tile floors, linoleum, and other floor surfaces and seal.

4.  And while you're at it...

And while you're at it, call the pros to schedule a carpet cleaning service, too.

5.  Think small:

Think small. Think small appliances. Think "clean small appliances."  Tackle the toaster, the toaster oven, the microwave - and show them who’s boss.

6.  Home office help:

Get a jump on the tax man. Use this month to clean out your office drawers and files and surprise your accountant with all your receipts for a change.

Consider organizing your paperwork more efficiently so this task will be easier next year.

7.  Does not compute?

Does not compute? Maybe it needs cleaning. Clean your computer, keyboard, and mouse.  And while you’re at it, tackle your all-in-one printer, too.

8.  Paper chase:

Clean out all those extra books, magazines, papers, etc.  Recycle, resell, or donate them. Here's how to get your home paperwork organized.

9.  Goodbye till next year:

Put winter clothes, ski clothes, sweaters, etc. into storage. This is also an excellent opportunity to reorganize your clothes. 

10.   Presto change-o: The final March house cleaning checklist task:

Presto change-o: And the “coat closet” becomes the “sweater closet.” Clean out the entry closet to make room for the new season’s outerwear.
