Care.com's Ultimate House Cleaning Checklist

Tiffany Smith
June 5, 2017

Show your clients how much you care about this job by keeping track of all of the things you did that day, along with any supply requests.

Want to let you clients know what you did while they were out? Need new supplies or have you finished a project? We created our House Cleaning Checklist to help you keep them updated on everything they need to know. With this checklist, you can tell them, in detail, about what you did and make requests and recommendations for future tasks and supplies. It'll show them that you did a great job (and give them a little incentive to write a glowing review of your services on Care.com).


Thanks for Tiffany. I recommend to see the Cleaners Academy for more interesting articles http://hubs.ly/H07_L__0

I always do my best, I follow my clients request all the time, and I always make sure to do little details because make all the difference. I clean their homes like was my own And always have a good friendship with my clients, always honest and friendly.

I always wonder how much or how little a housekeeper will do. I never know what questons to ask.

I have 2 different check list's (1) is for move outs and deep cleanings that my client and I will fill out together and the (2nd) one is for my weekly/bi-weekly's that I leave with them every time I come and clean; that way they can fill it out accordingly before my next visit. I also leave comment cards and encourage them to fill them out because feedback helps you learn and grow whether it is positive or negative... there is always room for improvement. I do all this because it is extremely important to me that I clearly understand what my clients want/need and work diligently to exceed their expectations.

I have a checklist made up for everything that I have done in my clients home so that way I know what I have done and they know what I have sone or if other things need to be added.
