What is Deep Cleaning?
Cleaning our house is common but when was the last time you actually went through everything and cleaned your home thoroughly? Deep cleaning is all about going through every nook and crannies. It is about getting rid of grimes and going behind kitchen appliances. Imagine going turning your house upside down and cleaning them! Deep cleaning takes a few hours and may even need a few hands but it is totally worth it as it will freshen your home like new! Aside from that, deep cleaning your house will also potentially keep you from getting sick.
7 Easy Deep Cleaning Tips
Home cleaning tips not enough for you? We’ve got you covered, here’s how you can deep clean your home:
Clean Your Bed
Assuming you’ve already washed your sheets and pillow covers, make sure to clean your bed. If you have a steamer, steam your bed. You can also lightly brush it with a detergent powder to clean them.
Usually, when we’re cleaning we just wipe or dust off our furniture. When you’re deep cleaning, you can scrub your furniture with minimal soap or liquid detergent. You can scrub your cupboards, sinks and a lot more. You’ll be surprised at how a thorough scrubbing can make your cupboards, sinks, floorings look new.
Blinds are one of the most common pieces that we overlook. Usually, we’d just dust them off and let it be. What we don’t notice is that dust builds up in between them so make sure to clean the dust in between your blinds.
Dust and Vacuum
Dust and vacuum hard to reach areas – ledges, light fixtures, top/bottom of cabinets, behind the fridge, under the bed. These areas need to be cleaned as well. Over time, these areas tend to accumulate dirt and dust.
Vent Covers/Air Conditioning Unit
Take out HVAC covers and wash them with soapy water (make sure they’re turned off before doing so). If you have an air conditioning unit, check out and clean the filters. If you’re unsure about it, you can call a professional to do it. It may cost you a bit but it will help you maintain the integrity of your cooling system and actually save you money in the long run.
