Portland Summer Cleaning Checklist

Summer is a wonderful time of year, particularly in the Pacific Northwest and more specifically, in Portland Oregon. Considering we get ridiculous amounts of rain and gloomy clouds almost 10 months a year means when the sun does finally stick around for a while the entire city pretty much goes into a UV filled frenzy of fun activities from river floats, camping, BBQing, parades, and outdoor concerts. Having all these awesome activities to do in such a short and sweet amount of time can make it tough to fit in your summer cleaning. Fortunately, we made this summer cleaning checklist to help you prioritize your next big clean. If you find yourself too busy, then you can always contact us to take care of the cleaning for you!

Summer is without a doubt the busiest time of year for the Portland metro area as it not only becomes peak tourist season where you will likely have friends or family coming to visit, but the kids are also out of school. This combination can quickly eat up your time and having guests and kids running amock can quickly make a mess of your home. One of the best things about Clean Arrival LLC, apart from our highly qualified and professional team, is our convenient online booking. If you find yourself constantly on the go this summer, then enjoy your time with your family and friends and leave the dreary work up to us.

Summer Cleaning Checklist

Below is our basic routine cleaning for a summer cleaning checklist which we created to help you organize and prioritize your cleaning schedule. This itemized list is intended to help you visualize your cleans to be the most effective and thorough as possible, much like our staff is trained to do so as to keep our quality and standards up. Some of these may not apply to your home or maybe some items aren’t very important to you like cleaning spots on the walls but these are just some of the things our team does on a daily basis.

Deep Cleaning is where you will typically go above and beyond keeping up with the outside appearances of your home and get more into the nitty-gritty.

  • Clean under appliances
  • Wipe ceiling fans and lights
  • Dust doortops
  • Wash doors
  • Clean carpets
