One unintended consequence of the global economy and the 24/7/365 business cycle is that many professionals no longer have time for day to day activities that were formerly consigned to evenings and weekends. That, unfortunately, includes house cleaning. At the same time, however, just letting the house fall into a state of dirty disrepair simply isn’t an option. So what to do? Enter professional cleaning services. As one of the capital’s pre-eminent cleaning services we at Cleaners of London have witnessed first-hand the shift in domestic priorities and the urgent need for qualified, trustworthy cleaners to fill the void, with a comprehensive house cleaning checklist to hand.

Many tenants and homeowners simply never consider the possibility of hiring a professional house cleaning company to pick up the slack created by their busy schedules. They simply assume the cost is prohibitive or else fear to let strangers into the house. But house cleaning by Cleaners of London is more affordable than you think and we go to great lengths to screen our staff members to ensure every one of our cleaners is diligent, hardworking and trustworthy. You can even book your cleaner online!

The Cleaners of London House Cleaning Checklist

Below is our typical house cleaning checklist. Please note the exact services may vary depending on the particulars of your home and your preferences.

Kitchen Checklist

The kitchen requires the most attention from a cleaning perspective. Because it is where food is stored, prepared and served it’s imperative that every aspect of the kitchen always be clean and hygienic. Failing to keep it so opens up the possibility of various types of food poisoning and also sends out a red-carpet invitation to roaches and other vermin. The typical Cleaners of London kitchen checklist includes the following.

  • Wiping and dusting all surfaces.
  • Cleaning inside the oven.
  • Wiping the inside of the microwave.
  • Cleaning and polishing of all appliances.
  • Washing the dishes.
  • Cleaning the aspirator.
  • Wiping any hot plates.
  • Cleaning inside the fridge.
  • Sweeping and/or vacuuming the floor.
  • Mopping the floor.
  • Emptying and re-bagging the bins.
