Dining Room Cleaning Checklist

Clean the Upholstery: Wipe down your dining room chairs with a damp microfiber cloth, and clean the seats using a vacuum with a brush attachment.

Clean the Windows: Let there be light! Clean your dining room windows with a squeegee and a solution of dishwashing liquid & water. Make sure to wipe off dust and water stains properly.

Dust Any Photographs or Artwork: Wipe frames with a microfiber cloth and glass cleaner. Run a duster for your artwork display.

Dust Inside Drawers: Next on our dining room cleaning checklist is to dust the insides of your drawers with a cloth and cleaner, then organize all items. Throw away items you don’t need to lessen the clutter.

Dust the Fixtures: Turn off the fixture before you clean it with an extendable duster. Clean light fixtures, recessed lighting, and ceiling fans.

Dust the Furnishings: Wipe furniture pieces like your dining table and sideboard with a microfiber cloth.

Vacuum the Drapes and Blinds: Using a vacuum with a brush attachment, vacuum the room’s drapes. You can wipe the blinds with a damp microfiber cloth.

Vacuum the Floors: Get rid of dust by vacuuming the floor with a brush attachment. Make sure to vacuum corners and under the dining table & sideboard. You can also mop uncarpeted areas to make the floor look sparkling clean.
