What do I need to do to ensure a deep clean of my home?
The following check-list should help ensure your home is thoroughly cleaned:
1. Dust and vacuum
This includes anywhere that is hard to reach such as ceiling fans, light fixtures, and above tall furniture. You should also ensure to remove cushions from chairs and couches and vacuum up all the crumbs and hair that might have found their down the sides and under the couch. 2.
Ensure to descale faucets, showerheads and any metal within the home with vinegar. This can make a huge difference to how clean your home looks. You can also use toothpaste for the extra shine.
Vacuum window sills and remove any cobwebs. Wipe down with vinegar solution and newspaper to avoid wipe stains.
Bins and garbage cans can sometimes become dirty and smelly. Make sure to sanitize and wipe these days to prevent any unwanted germs and smells from remaining in your home.
5. Cabinets and drawers
Cleaning out your cabinets and drawers may also call for a declutter at the same time. Make sure you empty them all and wipe them down before replacing belongings.
6. Oven and stovetop
The stovetop grates are likely to be greasy if you use them regularly. Remove these and soak them in hot and soapy water. You should then scrub down all surfaces and knobs with soap and water and then wipe down with a wet cloth. If you have a hood fan, then this will also need to be cleaned with the same process. Stubborn food and grease can be tackled with lemon and vinegar.
Your sinks, whether in the bathroom or the kitchen, are going to need a good clean. This is especially the case after a deep cleaning session. You should wash it out with hot soapy water. Be mindful of any crevices. A spray with bleach can help remove any stubborn stains or dull marks.
8. Toilet and bathroom
Spend time cleaning the bath and toilet and it can make a huge difference to how clean and hygienic your home feels. Pay attention to behind the toilet where dust and hair can accumulate. Using bath specific cleaner can also help remove stubborn grime and make your bath more inviting.
