With schools, gyms, restaurants and pretty much every nonessential business closing down for at least the next two weeks most of us suddenly find ourselves at home with a lot of extra time on our hands. While this can be super frustrating and inconvenient, it is a great opportunity to finally get around to giving your house a good deep cleaning!

I’ve taken my deep cleaning checklist and broken it down into a convenient two-week schedule and made a free printable! (just scroll all the way to the bottom to get your copy). Taking some time each day to turn off the TV turn on some music or a podcast and just tuning out the world while focusing on cleaning can be great for your mental health during this stressful time.
If your kids are home from school get them involved and assign them age-appropriate tasks. If you can get them into the habit of helping you clean they become more mindful of the messes they’re making during the day. And if you can get your kids on board with helping you keep the house clean during the next few weeks it will go along way in helping to keep your stress level down.
The two-week deep cleaning schedule
Monday – Tuesday: Bathrooms
Wednesday: Take a day off cleaning or finish up any bathroom tasks
Thursday – Friday: Living room and playroom/Toy area
Saturday: Take a day off cleaning or finish up any living room/ playroom tasks
Sunday – Monday: Kitchen
Tuesday: Take a day off cleaning or finish up any kitchen tasks
Wednesday – Thursday: Bedrooms
Friday: Take a day off cleaning or finish up any bedroom tasks
Sunday – Laundry room and entryway
Dedicating two days to one particular area such as bedrooms or bathrooms will give you plenty of time to tackle multiple rooms. And if you’re truly going to deep clean a kitchen you’ll probably need more then one day to do so.
Although you can certainly power through this deep cleaning schedule and get your cleaning down in less time, I think its important to add in some rest days to make sure that you’re not burning yourself out.
