Church cleaning checklist

Religious organizations are frequented by thousands of visitors every week. Apart from the visitors they also experience regular footfalls of the employees and the children who come there for education. To maintain the chastity and the sanctity of the church regular cleaning is essential. It is also needed to maintain the health standards of all those who reside in it. As churches generally comprise a huge area it is not possible to get it cleaned thoroughly every day. For a daily cleaning regime, dusting and mopping of floors is a must, so is the habit of kitchen and bathroom cleaning. It not only clears the indoor air but also reduces the weekly cleaning task.

For thorough cleaning segregate the tasks for weekly, monthly, bi-annual and annual cleaning. A checklist helps in getting the tasks well organized. It also helps in dividing the tasks among the people and make sure that every area is covered.

Here is a church cleaning checklist to help in reducing the volume of the task by dividing it over the year.
