Mastering the Art of Cleaning: How To Deep Clean Every Room In Your Home

13

Deep cleaning your home can be very satisfying however it takes some time. Additionally, you can’t clean these rooms with the same products and cleaning items. It just doesn’t work. Nevertheless, if you have all the equipment, it can make the end product very satisfying.

Breaking each room down step by step is very important when cleaning your home. If you don’t break down the process, cleaning your home can be overwhelming, even if you only live in a flat/apartment. All you have to do is create a checklist you can work through as you clean each room. Let’s see how you can make cleaning your home easier and far more enjoyable.

Declutter Before You Start Scrubbing

One of the first things you should do is declutter your rooms. This shouldn’t take too long and will make cleaning your home much easier. First, start with the living room. If any kid’s toys are lying around then put them away. If you have a pouffe for storage, put away your cushion covers to create more space and, make it easier to clean your sofa.

Once you have cleaned your living room, you can declutter your kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Then you can make a start on the deep clean.

Start From Top to Bottom

Starting with the more difficult parts of the rooms will be much better than starting with the easier sections. Plus, when cleaning shelves, mirrors, curtains or anything high up, dirt can fall onto the floor so you can clean it. Even your lamp shades will need cleaning if you haven’t cleaned them.

The next thing you need to do is ensure you have the right tools for the job. This will usually consist of microfibre cloths, dusters with long handles, and a long handle mop. The mop isn’t like your traditional cleaning mop. It should be a sponge that can be replaced once used.

Deep Clean Your Windows

Your windows are one of the most rewarding parts of cleaning and it’s one of those where you don’t think they are that dirty but are. First, you must clean the windowsills and the tracks of your window. Then use your long handle mop to wipe your windows. Dry them off properly to ensure you don’t leave any streaky marks.

Don’t Forget To Clean Your Blinds or Curtains

Cleaning these is very simple. Vacuuming the drapes of your blinds will do the trick and then with your curtains, put them in the dryer to fluff them up. You can have them in the dryer as you clean the curtain pole and curtain rings. Depending on how dirty your curtains are, you may need to put them in a hot wash alone or take them to the dry cleaners if you are worried about ruining them.

Dust Down Your Cabinet Units and Tables

Once you have cleaned all of the above, it is time to move on to the dusty parts of the rooms. This includes cabinets, bookshelves, tables and anything else that collects dust. When cleaning these, you will want to apply polish to give them a nice shine. You will also need to open your windows so you dont breathe in too much dust.

How To Clean Your Bedroom

When cleaning your bedroom, you need to make a start on the bedding. Take all of this off and then put it in the washing machine. If your pillow or mattress protectors need washing then wash them too.

While your bedding is being washed, sprinkle baking soda on the mattress and allow it to soak in for an hour. Once the time is up, go over your mattress with your hoover.

Finally, declutter your wardrobe, throw away clothes you no longer need or just organise them so they look much neater.

How To Clean Your Kitchen

Start with polishing and wiping down your kitchen cabinets. This is a good place to start before you deep clean everything else. Once you have done that, you can begin to clean kitchen appliances such as your toaster, microwave, dishwashers and stoves. Even your oven/grill will need to be cleaned if you have one.

If you are feeling super motivated, clean out your fridge and freezer. You can also clean inside your cupboards if required.

How To Clean Your Bathroom

The hardest room to clean is always the bathroom. Somehow, this room gets the dirtiest despite it being the room that you go in the fewest times. We recommend cleaning your shower curtain while cleaning the rest of the bathroom. All that is required is to put the curtain in the washing machine. Remember to clean your shower screen and doors if you have this instead of a shower curtain.

Use bathroom spray to clean inside your shower, bathtub and sink. You will also want to clean the inside of your toilet by using your toilet brush and bleach however, leave the bleach inside your toilet for at least 15 minutes to make it easier to clean.

Summary

As mentioned before, deep cleaning your home is very satisfying. We advise you to do it step by step and one room at a time. It makes it far more motivating and you look forward to the end product. So, go get your cleaning products and deep clean your property.
