Did you know cleaning your house is a good way to improve your anxiety and mood?
Of course, you want your home to be as clean as possible, but you may think you don’t have enough time to clean your entire house. Fortunately, deep cleaning is a great way to clean your house without taking forever.
Keep reading to learn some great tips for deep cleaning a house.
- Gather the Necessary Cleaning Supplies
Start with all-purpose cleaners, glass cleaners, sponges, rags, and paper towels. For deeper cleaning, you’ll also want a detergent cleaner, broom, mop, vacuum cleaner, and dusting cloths. It helps to stock up on more ‘nontraditional’ supplies like rubbing alcohol, baking soda, and toothbrushes.
Don’t forget the rubber gloves too! With all the right cleaning supplies, you’ll easily tackle even the toughest cleaning tasks. Once you have your supplies, you’ll be able to deep clean your neat and tidy house effectively and efficiently.
- Create a Cleaning Schedule to Stay on Track
This is a great tip for staying on track and ensuring your deep cleaning is effective. Start by mapping out a plan and setting a fixed day and time to dedicate to deep cleaning tasks.
Divide the spaces into rooms and assign tasks to complete each day. This can include dusting, vacuuming, mopping floors, deep cleaning carpets, kitchen tasks, and more. Designating a set time to clean each day can help keep you motivated and prevent you from falling behind.
- Deep Clean Every Room From Top to Bottom
Deep house cleaning should be done at least once a year, and it’s best to do it room by room. Start at the top of the room and work down; this includes dusting, vacuuming, and mopping.
Then move to the walls, fixtures, furniture, and floors. Pay special attention to difficult-to-reach spots such as the tops of door frames and ceilings. For the kitchen and bathroom, sanitize surfaces with a mild soap and bleach solution and scrub walls and floors with a heavy-duty cleaner.
- Focus on Problem Areas & Hard-to-Reach Places
When it comes deep cleaning a home, it is important to focus on problem areas and hard-to-reach places. These areas can become cluttered, dusty, and even home to pests and germs.
Begin assessing all problem areas, such as high-traffic areas, corners, window frames, bathrooms, kitchens, and other tricky spaces. After that, it is important to create a plan to clean the home and break the work down into small tasks.
- Maintain Your Deep-Cleaned Home with Regular Cleaning
It is also important to keep supplies like glass cleaner, bleach, and all-purpose cleaner on hand for quick spot cleaning. Vacuum and mop your floors weekly, and use a dust mop or vacuum regularly to prevent dust from building up.
Make sure to dust surfaces like ceiling corners, fans, and window sills. In addition to weekly or bi-weekly deep cleaning, add scent diffusion for medium spaces.
