coats in cluttered mudroomA clean and organized mudroom is worth its weight in gold, especially when you’re leading a busy life (there’s a lot of gear that comes with school, work, and hobbies!). That’s why we’ve put together a list of cleaning and organization tips that’ll give you a functional space that makes life easier (to make life even easier, hire a professional cleaner to keep it clean and organized).

Mudroom Organization Tips

  • Clear out everything so you can efficiently deep clean and organize.
  • When you clear all the gear out of a mudroom, divide the items into piles (i.e. shoes, winter gear, winter jackets, hobby gear, sports gear, pet items, etc.)
  • Get storage solutions for each pile, such as containers for winter gear and a shoe rack for footwear. (For other ideas, check out this list of mudroom storage ideas.)
  • Add hooks and cabinets at “kid level” so kids can easily put their items away and hang up coats.
  • Maximize the space you have; hang cabinets, hooks, and shelves so they efficiently use space.

Mudroom Cleaning Checklist

  • Clean the ceiling and remove spider webs.
  • Wash the walls. (Walls in a mudroom can get dirty easily from gear and foot traffic.)
  • Clean duct covers.
  • Deep clean flooring.
  • Vacuum mudroom rugs.
  • Clean trim work.
  • Dust and sweep benches and shelves.
  • Wipe down hooks.
  • Clean containers (i.e. baskets, fabric drawers, etc.)
  • If you have asthma and can’t handle the dust, a bad back, or don’t have the time, hire a cleaning service to take on your mudroom organization so you can enjoy an organized and functional space.
