Perhaps you haven’t got around to cleaning your house for a while and need to blitz it. Or, maybe you clean your home once a week but sometimes you’re in a rush and don’t do as thorough a job as you’d like. Alternatively, you may have just moved into a new property and want to make sure it’s really clean before you start living there. Whatever your reasons, follow our instructions for how to deep clean your home. It’ll be sparkling clean in no time.
Start with the Kitchen
Kitchens generally need small daily cleans, particularly after preparing and clearing away after a meal. To deep clean your kitchen, you’ll need to concentrate on both the surfaces and the large appliances. Fridge, oven, microwave, kettle, and toaster will all need attention. With larger appliances, be sure to take out everything before starting. For example, fully empty the fridge and remove the shelves. Wipe everything, inside and out, including the often-overlooked handles. Treat your shelves, drawers, and cabinets to a similar empty and wipe-around, using the cleaning products of your choice. Do the same with all the surfaces in the kitchen.
Move on to the bathrooms
The areas that get most dirty in the bathroom are, perhaps surprisingly, the bath and shower. Treat the showerhead to a good clean with an old toothbrush. Remove and clean or replace the shower caddy. Do the same with your shower curtain. Next, scrub the shower cubicle, bath and the sink with your favorite cleaning products. Keep the old toothbrush handy for drains, faucets and hard-to-reach places. Clean your toilet as you would usually but leave your environmentally friendly cleaning product in the water for half an hour before flushing it away.
Bedrooms and living rooms
Providing your bedrooms and living rooms are not too cluttered; this task should be one of the quickest. Pull all your furniture out from the walls – it’s amazing how much dust builds up behind – and give the furniture and the floor a thorough vacuum. Wipe down all the wood and other surfaces such as headboards and bedposts. Treat your mirrors to a wipe with some specialist glass cleaner.
When vacuuming and mopping all the floors in the house, you may notice that the corners, for instance, still might not look very clean. The best way to deal with this is to get down on your knees and use a damp cloth in the corners and around the edges. You can also use vacuum attachments to get to the hard-to-reach places. Also, remember to wipe down all the skirting boards while you’re treating the floors.
Alternatively if you find that this is particularly hard to do then you could hire a professional company to do this for you. These could be domestic cleaners or an end of tenancy cleaners Clapham based company that will ensure that you get all of your deposit back.
Consider deep cleaning your house once or twice a year as routine, and then whenever you feel it needs a bit of extra sparkle.
