It’s time to clean the dining room! Depending on whether or not you have an eat-in kitchen, a formal dining room, or both, this is the room where people make memories. Delicious meals are served and eaten, families gather to talk about their day, and yes, messes are made. When doing your housekeeping routine and weekly zone cleaning, you’ll find that you need to deep clean your dining room about once every two months or so. Let’s see what we need to do some dining room zone cleaning, shall we?
Dining Room Zone Cleaning
Let’s grab our cleaning supplies.
- Glass cleaner
- Multisurface cleaner
- Wood cleaner
- Paper towels/rags
Now that we have all of our supplies, it’s time to get to work.
Begin by removing any cobwebs in the corners of the ceiling.
Clean doors – tracks, door handles. I like to use a magic eraser for scuff marks.
Windows – don’t forget the tracks! Those can get dirty fast!
Dust all ceiling fans and light fixtures.
Walls – Don’t forget switch plates and plugs. Remove any scuff marks with a magic eraser.
If you have any cabinets in your dining room, remove the contents, make sure those are clean, and dust the shelves of your cabinets.
Polish table – I absolutely love Method’s wood polish. It smells so good!
Clean chairs – Check the bottom of chair legs, mine get gooped up.
Baseboards – Wipe down baseboards
Mirrors – Use a glass cleaner on your mirrors to make them shine.
Vents – Clean inside any vents in the room.
Shelves – Wipe down shelves.
Rugs – Wash rugs.
Mop or vacuum the floor – If carpeted you can also use a carpet cleaner – This is the one we use and love.
