Our bedroom is a space where we spend the most number of hours, so it’s important to have a Bedroom Cleaning Checklist to keep it tidy and welcoming. From changing sheets to regular dusting, here’s what you need for spotless bedrooms in your household, whether you’re quickly tidying up or doing a deep clean.

This list features general cleaning tasks that will keep your bedroom tidy, as well as organized and well stocked if it’s a guest bedroom.

  • Change sheets
  • Dust furniture and appliances
  • Vacuum
  • Wash windows and blinds or curtains
  • Tidy up and clear away clutter
  • Organize dresser and nightstand
  • Put away dirty/clean clothes
  • Empty trash
  • Spot clean walls
  • Make the bed
  • Deodorize room

Change Sheets

Dead skin, bacteria, and germs accumulate quickly on bedsheets, particularly pillow cases. Be sure to change your bedsheets at least once a week and even more frequently during cold and flu season.

Dust and Vacuum

Regularly dusting and vacuuming is especially important if you have allergies or other skin sensitivities. Be sure to also dispose of the dirt safely to ensure it doesn't remain in the bedroom.

Wash Window and Window Treatments

Dusty blinds and window treatments can be a safety hazard, so be sure they are regularly dusted and maintained to ensure everyone’s health.

Tidy Up Clutter and Organize Desks and Counters

An easy tip for making sure clutter doesn’t pile up is to have a designated basket or bin to place mislaid items. At the end of each day, take the basket and restore items to their correct places.

Spot Clean Walls

A versatile all purpose surface cleaner can handle everything from fingerprints and stains to walls, whether it’s wallpaper or paint.

Make the Bed

This simple task may not seem important to do, but coming home to a neat and tidy bed can work wonders in improving your mood and mental health.

Deodorize Room

Once cleaned, be sure to deodorize the room using a candle or simply opening windows to let in fresh air.

Pro tip: If you live in a house built before 1978, pay extra attention to window sills and corners where lead-based paint chips may have accumulated.
