Cleaning Products Checklist


Whether you’re looking for a deep clean, move in clean, emergency clean or you're just restocking cleaning products for your home, the team at Northern Commercial Cleaning have developed a cleaning supply checklist to make sure you’ve got everything you need.

Our experienced team understand which cleaning products can make the biggest difference. Please take a moment to view our list of essential cleaning supplies below to learn about the variety of cleaning supplies we recommend for each room in your home.

Essential Cleaning Supplies for Your Floors

  • Vacuum

  • Bucket

  • Steam mop solution

  • Rags or chamois mop

  • Warm water mixed with basic dish washing soap

If you have hardwood floors that have been sealed with polyurethane (as most have), you can clean them by adding 1 to 2 tablespoons of dish soap per 5-gallon bucket of warm water. Be sure to vacuum, sweep or dry-mop before starting the cleaning process to remove any small dirt or debris particles.

The same solution will also work on linoleum and tile. If you are cleaning tile, make sure to avoid soaking the grout lines with dirty water, as this can lead to discoloration.

Kitchen Cleaning Supplies

  • All-purpose cleaner

  • Oven cleaner

  • Stainless steel cleaner (if you have stainless steel appliances)

  • Scrubbing sponges (buy a five-pack!)

  • Microfiber cloths

  • Warm water mixed with a basic dishwashing soap (for stone countertops)

  • Baking soda

  • White vinegar

  • A few lemons

Countertop Cleaning Tips

To clean countertops and other hard surfaces, use an all-purpose cleaner (like 409 or Simple Green). If you have marble, quartz, or granite in your kitchen, only clean them with mild dish detergent and warm water to prevent breaking down the stone’s sealant.

Sink & Garbage Disposal Cleaning Tips

Clean your stainless-steel sink by rubbing in baking soda with a sponge, then spraying it with white vinegar. After the foam has dissipated, rinse your sink with cool water and let it air dry. Put two halves of a lemon down the garbage disposal and run the disposal to give your sink area a fresh, clean smell.

Pro Tip: You can also use lemons to clean your cutting boards—simply squeeze and rub half a lemon on stubborn food stains and let it sit for a while before rinsing.

Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s directions on any speciality kitchen cleaning products you buy, like oven cleaners and stainless steel cleaners.

Bathroom Cleaning Products List

  • Toilet brush

  • Grout and tile cleaner

  • Grout brush

  • All-purpose cleaner

A dedicated toilet brush is a must for controlling the spread of germs and keeping your toilet clean. When tackling the grout on your floor and in your shower, use a grout brush (or other small brush with firm bristles), and make sure you read the product specifications. All-purpose cleaners can be used on sinks and other hard surfaces (but see the kitchen tips above if you have granite or another stone).

Essential Cleaning Supplies for Living Areas and Bedrooms

  • Glass cleaner

  • Lint roller

  • Extendable duster

  • Vacuum

Pro Tip: Use newspaper instead of paper towel to clean windows. It will prevent streaking and fuzzy cloth residue.

A lint roller works great on delicate surfaces, like pillows, especially if you have pets. And don’t forget about an extendable duster for those hard-to-reach ceiling fans and other nooks and crannies.
