How to Deep Clean Your Living Room (Free Checklist)

Are you ready to give your house a good cleaning? Here's how to deep clean your living room with a free printable checklist.

It’s no secret – the kitchen is the “hub” of the home and gets the most practical use. However, the one room in my house that is the most messy-looking is always the living room.

It’s where toys are dumped, and kinetic sand is strewn about. It has become a hotspot for homeschooling, and the recliner is my husband’s go-to after work.

It’s easily the room used most often by the most number of people in my family. And while it’s never truly dirty, it’s often messy, which is why it deserves a nice deep cleaning to get it back on track.

Maybe you’re in the same boat?

If so, here’s how to deep clean your living room.

Deep Clean Tasks

Remove Dust and Cobwebs from Ceiling and Walls

Using a vacuum attachment or a broom, walk around the living room and remove all cobwebs on the ceiling and wall.

Dust Light Fixture/Ceiling Fan

If you have a ceiling fan, use your vacuum attachment to suck the dust off. Next, use a microfiber cloth and a general-purpose cleaner to remove any remaining dust.

Clean Your TV

Use a dry, clean microfiber cloth to wipe all the dust off of your TV. Wipe in circular motions.

If there are problem spots of built-up dirt or grime, lightly mist the TV with a TV cleaner and wipe with your microfiber cloth.

Dust Your Lamps

Wipe Down Tables, TV Stands, and Hard Surfaces

Use your all-purpose cleaner or wood cleaner to wipe down tables, tv stands, and other hard surfaces. Make sure to get the tops, bottom, and sides of each surface.

Vacuum Furniture

Remove any cushions from your furniture and use an attachment to vacuum any crumbs thoroughly. Vacuum the cushions as well.

Vacuum Under Furniture

Move furniture piece by piece and pick up any trash you find underneath. Vacuum and mop if needed.

Finishing Touches

Clean Windows and Window Tracks

Pull out your vacuum or shop vac, open up the windows and vacuum the tracks. If you haven’t done this in a while, you’ll probably find a collection of bugs in there. After the tracks are swept, wipe them down with an all-purpose cleaner.

Last, use a glass cleaner to wipe down your windows.

Wipe Down Baseboards

Spray a microfiber cloth with your favorite all-purpose cleaner and wipe down all baseboards and trim work.

Sweep and Mop

Do a final sweep and mop of the living room.

Replace Throw Pillows and Blankets

Once throw blankets and pillow covers are finished washing and drying, put them back where they belong.
