Freshen Up Your Home With These 10 Deep Cleaning Tips

A thorough cleanse can do wonders for your mental and physical health. Not to mention, it’ll make your house look and feel fresh and new. In this blog post, we will discuss 10 deep cleaning tips that will help you get your home ready for spring!

Get organized and make a plan

Start by organizing the items in your home, so you know what can be thrown out or donated. This will help you create a cleaning plan that is tailored to your specific needs and goals.

Empty all cupboards and drawers

All cupboards and drawers should be emptied before deep cleaning begins. Doing this will allow for easier access and more thorough cleaning of the hard-to-reach nooks and crannies.

Vacuum everywhere

Vacuum whilst making sure to move furniture when necessary – carpets, rugs, curtains, furniture cushions etc.. Vacuuming should also include dusting away cobwebs from corners of ceilings and walls where spiders or other insects have taken refuge.

Clean windows and window tracks

The window’s glass should be wiped down with a soapy solution, and the tracks should be scrubbed using an old toothbrush to remove any stubborn dirt.

Wash walls and baseboards

Use a sponge mop and warm water with a mild detergent to clean off wall scuffs, fingerprints, dust, and dirt from your walls and baseboards. If there are any marks that won’t come off easily, consider using an all-purpose cleaner for spot cleaning.

Wipe down all surfaces

This includes countertops, shelves, furniture tops etc.. Make sure you use a microfiber cloth or paper towel to avoid scratches.

Clean and disinfect bathrooms

Using an antibacterial cleaner, scrub the bathtub, shower, sink, toilet and tile grout. Be sure to pay extra attention to the showerhead as it can accumulate a lot of dirt and bacteria over time.

Wash bedding, curtains and upholstery

Throw your sheets in the washing machine with some laundry detergent. Curtains should be washed or dry-cleaned depending on the material they are made from, while upholstered furniture should receive either a steam clean or an affordable cleaning service as spot treatment from a professional cleaning service if necessary.

Mop all hard floors

Start by sweeping away dust and debris before mopping with warm water and a mild detergent. For tougher stains, you may need to use an all-purpose cleaner or carpet spot remover.

Clean air ducts

Dirty air ducts can circulate allergens in the home, making it difficult for those with allergies to breathe easily. As such, it’s important to have your air ducts professionally cleaned once a year to ensure that your indoor air quality is healthy and safe.

Bonus Tip: Hire a professional cleaner to help with your deep clean. Professional cleaners know the ins and outs of how to properly clean and disinfect various materials such as upholstery, carpets, tile grout, etc. They can save you time and hassle while ensuring that your home is thoroughly cleaned.

There’s nothing quite like coming home to an immaculate space after a thorough deep clean. Hopefully these 10 tips will provide you with the inspiration needed to give your home some much needed TLC! Happy cleaning!
