Get your house clean and organized in less time with our simple living room cleaning checklist.

The living room is one of the busiest rooms of your home. It’s the activity area of your house where everyone gathers to watch a football game, bring out their books to study, it’s where kids and pets play, and sometimes, it’s where everyone eats while glued to their favorite show. So it’s no surprise that there’s so much clutter left behind at every end of the day. From toys to food crumbs, your living room can turn into a big pile of mess in just 24 hours.

To control this mess, and to keep the living space looking presentable (in case of surprise visitors), here’s a simple living room cleaning checklist to guide and help you every week.

Living Room Cleaning Checklist

Clean the Upholstery: Wipe down your coffee table, console, and shelf with a damp microfiber cloth, and clean the sofa using a vacuum with a brush attachment.

Clean the Windows: Clean your living 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 living room cleaning checklist is to dust the insides of your drawers with a cloth and cleaner, then organize all items. Return items that don’t belong in the room or place a box for toys. 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 coffee table and console 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 coffee table, sofa, console, and shelf. You can also mop uncarpeted areas to make the floor look sparkling clean.
