As you live through days of lockdown and social distancing, you are likely to be spending more time at home. Many people are not only working from home but also schooling their children from home. The near-impossible task of keeping up with work duties and child-rearing means that keeping on top of housekeeping has become more difficult than ever.
Arguably, however, not only keeping your home clean but also deep cleaning regularly is essential to good health. If you’re feeling like adding another task to your ever-growing to do list may cause you to collapse, then don’t worry: help is at hand. Professional cleaning services can take care of your house cleaning so that you’re free to concentrate and focus on other tasks. Whether you’ve delegated the duty or plan to do it yourself, it can help to have an idea of how to deep clean your home. Read on to learn more.
How can I make sure my home is cleaned thoroughly?
There are areas of the house that often get a good tidy up and clean. Vacuuming your dining room after meals, for example, might be second nature to you. But a thorough and deep clean is a different idea altogether. There are areas of the house that you must ensure are cleaned from time to time.
1. Door handles and switches
These aren’t automatically areas you might think to clean, however, they are often used and touched by multiple fingers at a time. Ensuring they are cleaned may help keep germs at bay.
2. Kitchen countertops
Kitchen countertops can easily become grimy and full of crumbs. It is easy to get into the habit of a quick wipe with a paper towel. But if you spend a bit of time scrubbing with some high-quality detergent, you will be surprised at how much murky water falls off the surface. Your countertops is somewhere you prepare or store food. Keeping your countertops pristine and clean can help keep you healthy.
You can descale any metal items in your home with a vinegar and water solution. It will bring the shine back to your bathroom and kitchen and give a thoroughly cleaned feel to your home.
4. Behind and in furniture
When you vacuum quickly in the morning or after a meal, you will probably not move furniture or cushions to clean hard to reach areas. You should, however, try to do this every few days or at least once a week. Move any furniture, chairs or tables and sofa cushions to clean up any crumbs. This can help prevent rodents and insects that can bring disease into your home.
