You'll Want to Add These Tasks to Your Bedroom Cleaning Checklist

Your bedroom needs more cleaning than changing the bedsheets. You should change your bedding, but spring is around the corner. And you know what spring means: your room is going to need a good deep cleaning.

Spring cleaning can be overwhelming, so start with the bedrooms. From guest rooms to master bedrooms and everything in between, here are all the areas you need to add to your bedroom cleaning checklist.

Start By Straightening Up

When you look at a dirty room as a whole, cleaning can feel like an uphill battle. Start by taking a smaller chunk of the work by straightening up the bedroom.

Pick up dirty clothes from the floor and put them in the hamper. Next, fold or hang your clean clothes and put them away. Put away shoes and any accessories into their rightful space.

Clean off the tops of dressers and nightstands and put away any items that are out of place. Pick up any trash and empty trash cans.

This process should leave your floor clear and furniture tops organized. Your room will look clean, which will make the next steps easier.

Next Declutter Your Space

The next step on your cleaning your bedroom checklist is to declutter. Clutter can make clean rooms look messy, so this is an important step to a cleaner room.

Decluttering your space will also help to prevent your room from getting messy in the future. You can separate your decluttered items into categories like keep, storage, and sell.

Go through your chargers and remotes and get rid of any for devices you no longer own. Trash like papers and dead batteries can get thrown out. Clothes, jewelry, accessories, and shoes you no longer wear can be donated or sold.

Getting rid of these extra little items will do wonders in creating a cleaner space.

Tackle Your Bedding and Mattress

With the room cleared-out, you can now get to the actual cleaning. You can start with your bed. This way, if you don’t finish cleaning in a day, you can still go to sleep on clean sheets.

Wash all your linens, starting with your sheets and pillowcase. While these are in the wash, you can begin cleaning other parts of the room.

With the sheets off the bed, you can clean your mattress. Vacuum, deodorize, and remove stains during the cleaning process. You can also flip or rotate your mattress at this time.

Once your sheets have finished, wash your comforter or duvet cover. If it doesn’t fit in a washing machine, you can wash your comforter in the bathtub by hand. Spot clean any throw pillows with an upholstery cleaner.

When everything is done, you can make your bed and get ready for a good night’s sleep.

Furniture, Walls, and Fixtures

Now it’s time to get down to the nitty-gritty of cleaning. Start by dusting and polishing your furniture. Use a microfiber rag and some furniture polish to remove any dust or dirt that’s collected over the last few months.

Take picture frames off the wall and thoroughly clean them. You can use a glass cleaner to clean the front of the frames. Dust lamps and lampshades, and wipe down any decorative objects and knickknacks.

Dust your furniture on all sides, including the back. Clean handles and pulls on your furniture. Wipe down ceiling fan blades and any light fixtures. Don’t forget about cleaning the walls and trim around the doors, baseboards, and floor.

Many people forget about cleaning these areas. But paying a little more attention to these parts of your bedroom can make a big difference in the cleanliness of your space.

Deep Cleaning the Floors

Once you complete every other job, you can deep clean the floors. Save this for last, so you don’t get the dust and dirt from other parts of the room on the freshly clean floors.

Now you can sweep, vacuum, and/or mop the floors. Take your area rugs outside and shake them out, then vacuum and use carpet cleaner on rugs. Finish the process by spot cleaning any carpet stains.

The floors under the bed and behind the furniture collect a lot of dust because they’re untouched. Remember that vent covers need deep cleaning too.

Finishing Touches

You’re almost done with your bedroom deep cleaning checklist. Now it’s time to put on the finishing touches so you can enjoy your newly clean room.

Remake your bed with the freshly washed sheets. Put your pictures and decor back into place. Replace any burned-out light bulbs and air filters.

Once everything is back where it should be, spray your bedroom with a scented room spray or light a candle for a pleasant scent. Now lay back and enjoy a clean room.

Daily and Weekly Cleaning

Now that your room is clean, you want it to stay that way. Here are some tasks you should do daily and weekly to maintain the look and cleanliness of your bedroom.

Every day, you should make your bed with cozy pillows and blankets. Pick up dirty clothes and put them in the hamper. Declutter the nightstand, remove any trash and take glasses back to the kitchen.

Put back any out-of-place items, especially if they belong in another room. Doing these little tasks will prevent creating an overwhelming mess.

Every week, you should do a mini deep clean. Start by sweeping or vacuuming the floors. Wash your sheets and pillowcases. Do some dusting around the room like picture frames, decor, and furniture tops.

You should also clean glass surfaces like mirrors and even windows. Empty to your garbage can and sanitize door handles and light switches. These weekly tasks will make the next deep clean not as intense.
