More Deep Cleaning Tasks

I rotate some other deep-cleaning tasks throughout the year.  I have some jobs that I complete every three months; others that I do every six months or less.  I basically divide the list up and assign the duties to specific months on my master to-do list.  Here’s a list of the extra tasks:


Every three months:

Clean oven

Scrub grout

Vacuum behind fridge

Vacuum upholstery

Wash curtains

Polish baseboards and trim

Descale coffee maker

Vacuum mattress

Launder throw rugs

Wash light fixtures (run through dishwasher, if possible)


Every six months:

Launder pillows

Clean lampshades

Sponge-clean upholstery

Wash slip-covers

Scrub grout

Vacuum condenser coil (fridge)

Wash comforter, bed skirt

Wash kitchen cabinets, inside and out

Deep clean stove hood (includes cleaning fan filter)



Every Year

Clean carpets

Wash Walls

Professionally clean drapes


About Amy Caldwell

Home Work. It is probably the most important work we do. The time and energy investing in our homes can make a world of difference and a difference in our world. Juggling work, kids, groceries, church, husband, dinner, and cleaning may be a feat worthy of head-lining the circus, but as long as I have coffee, it's all good.
