February’s Cleanliness Checklist

by Dave Logan


February is here! Before long, it will be springtime and there will be a whole new list of things to prepare for. In the interim, we’ve compiled a little “checklist” of things to stay on top of this month. Enjoy!

February Chores:


  • Examine your thermostat’s accuracy and replace it if necessary.
  • Clean your clothes dryer vent duct. It’s the number two cause of house fires!
  • Check fire extinguishers and refill or replace them as needed.
  • Clean the coils in the rear of your refrigerator unit.
  • Replace or clean your furnace filters.
  • Test your smoke detectors and replace if necessary.
  • Clean your stove burner grates. Those things get pretty funky, so give them a good scrubbing.
  • Wipe down and disinfect all doorknobs.
  • Wipe down and disinfect your kitchen cabinets.
  • Clean and dust all of your ceiling fan blades.

Each Week:


  • Dust all furniture and hard surfaces.
  • Vacuum and mop all floors.
  • Scrub and disinfect your kitchen sink.
  • Wipe down the surfaces of all appliances.
  • Clean and scrub down the shower.
  • Wipe down and disinfect your counters.
  • Scrub and disinfect all toilets (c’mon, it’s fun!).

We hope this is helpful for you and remember: cleanliness is next to godliness!
