The Ultimate Bathroom Cleaning Checklist – Your Guide

The Ultimate Bathroom Cleaning Checklist

There aren’t many people in the world who enjoy cleaning their bathrooms. It’s usually a small room filled with obstacles like a toilet, sink, shower, and or tub enclosure. One has to be pretty nimble to navigate so many things in such a small space with a scrub brush in hand.

Given the challenges you will face when it’s time to tackle your bathroom(s), you would do well to have a plan of attack. We would recommend that your plan of attack include the ultimate checklist that targets cleaning a bathroom. That checklist will end up being your salvation because it will keep you organized and help you to not miss cleaning something that needs to be cleaned.

Daily Cleaning Checklist

If your bathroom has plenty of traffic, it can get pretty filthy in a single day. It’s for that reason that you should pay some cleaning attention to your bathroom daily. It won’t require a full daily cleaning, but there are cleaning chores you can do to make regular (weekly/monthly) bathroom cleanings easier. Here are a few chores our cleaners would recommend you do daily:

  • Rinse the soap scum from the shower and or tub enclosure
  • Wipe the countertops
  • Wipe the sink and facet
  • Rinse out the toilet bowl
  • Clean soap and toothpaste off the mirror
  • Sweep the floor
  • Hang towels and empty trash

Weekly Cleaning Checklist

When it comes to your bathroom cleaning schedule, weekly cleanings will be when a lot of the cleaning work will get done. Weekly cleanings should be part of your weekly housekeeping regimen. With that in mind, here are the chores that belong on your weekly checklist for the bathroom:

  • Scrub and disinfect the toilet – bowl and tank
  • Scrub and disinfect the sink and polish the facets
  • Wipe down the shower enclosure
  • Clean and disinfect the tub and facets
  • Clean the mirror
  • Wipe down cabinets and countertops
  • Sweep and mop the floor
  • Empty the trash

Monthly Cleaning Checklist

At least once a month, you should convert your bathroom cleaning checklist to a bathroom deep cleaning checklist. Deep cleanings are going to require a little more time and elbow grease to get at the hidden dirt and grime that gets missed each week. Your bathroom deep cleaning checklist should include these chores:

  • All of the weekly chores plus –
  • Clean the shower mats and glass enclosure + frame
  • Clean any throw rugs or bathroom mats
  • Clean the walls and baseboards
  • Wipe down and polish light fixtures and ceiling fans when applicable

Seasonal Cleaning Checklist

We call it seasonal cleaning while you probably call it “spring” cleaning. Either way, this is the time of year when you want to scrub, polish, and sterilize every square inch of your bathroom(s). Again, it’s going to require even more time and elbow grease. However, the end result should be a sparkling clean bathroom(s) that’s completely free of dirt, grime, soap scum, and harmful bacteria. You seasonal checklist should include:

  • All of the weekly and monthly chores plus –
  • Cleaning out all drains
  • Window washing if applicable
  • Cleaning out and organizing of drawers and cabinets
  • Wipe cobwebs from the ceiling
  • Clean countertop grout

How often should I clean my bathroom to prevent mold and mildew?

At a minimum, you should give your bathroom or bathrooms a good mildew/mold prevention cleaning at least once a week. Keep and eye underneath things and around the shower curtain base.
