A housekeeping checklist is a list used to track or aid in housekeeping activities or chores. The checklist is essential to ensuring effective housekeeping, as it helps cleaners make sure everything has been cleaned well.

A housekeeping checklist is useful for organizing the work of both individual housekeepers and commercial cleaning companies. It's an essential tool that helps in keeping track of cleaning supplies, cleaning errands any other special requests from clients. Cleaning companies use the checklist to identify areas and items that need cleaning, time used for each area and the effort required. By tracking how much time and effort goes into a job, the housekeeping checklist can also be used to make cleaning cost estimates.
