Most people have a list of house chores that they complete each week and this is great to keep you home in tip-top shape. But it’s also important to give your house a deep clean every so often.
Doing a deep clean once or twice a year enables you to get to the neglected, hard to reach areas around your home. These are the areas that are usually missed during your usual weekly cleaning regime.
Cleaning every corner of your home is key to achieving a fresh and modern look. It also keeps your living space safe, hygienic, and hypoallergenic.
Here are some top tips that will make things much easier when you’re giving your home a deep clean.
Clean Your Air Vents and Ducts
One of the most forgettable areas of your home is the ventilation system. However, leaving your vents to accumulate dust can reduce the air quality in your home. This isn’t healthy for anybody but it’s especially dangerous if have allergies or a respiratory condition, like asthma.
Cleaning your heating and air conditioning system is much easier said than done. It’s likely that you’ll need to call a Certified HVAC and Air Duct Cleaning company to properly clean your system.
Once your ventilation system has been cleaned, you can breathe in the fresh air and continue with your deep clean!
Remove the Dust
Part of your deep cleaning will require you to remove as much dust as possible from every surface.
Grab a microfiber cloth that won’t damage your wooden or glass surfaces and get wiping! Don’t forget the window ledges, lampshades, photo frames, and shelves.
To collect the dust from your floorboards, carpets, and rugs, get your vacuum cleaner and use the narrow nozzle head. This will help you to reach every corner and crevice.
Wash the Bed Sheets
Part of your deep cleaning process involves washing your bedsheets. Remove your pillowcases, duvet cover, fitted sheets, and blankets from the bed and run them through a cycle in your washing machine.
Remember to separate colors from whites, and be careful with soft materials, such as silk and wool. You might need to hand wash some of your bedding.
While your bedding is in the washing machine, flip and rotate the mattress. Pull the bottom of the bed away from the wall so that you can vacuum the hidden dust in the corners of the room.
Don’t Forget the Windows
Get yourself some glass cleaner and use soft microfiber cloths to wipe down all of your windows. When your windows are clean and sparkling, more natural light can enter your home too.
Do the same with your glass cabinets and tables to leave them shining, and don’t forget about your shower doors. Dirt and grime can easily build up on glass surfaces, so you might need to give them a good scrub.
