Deep cleaning your house is a daunting task, but it needs to be done regularly if you want to keep your home in good condition. Luckily, deep cleaning your house is not as difficult as it may seem. With a little elbow grease and the right tools, you can have your home looking new in no time. Here are some tips on how to properly deep clean your house – from top to bottom!
Using The Right Tools
The first step in deep cleaning your house is to gather the right tools. You’ll need a broom, dustpan, mop, bucket, rags, and cleaning supplies. It’s also a good idea to have some spare trash bags on hand, as you’ll likely be generating a lot of waste during your deep clean. An ideal tool to use would be a pressure washer that can simplify the cleaning process. If you don’t have one available, a regular hose will do, however, it will not deep clean as well as when using high-pressure tools.
Cleaning Your Ceilings, Walls, and Floors
Start your deep clean by dusting your ceilings and walls. Use a broom or duster to reach any cobwebs or dust that has accumulated in hard-to-reach places. Once you’ve removed the bulk of the dust, use a cloth or rag to get into any nooks and crannies. Be sure to pay special attention to areas around light fixtures and in corners. If you have any particularly dirty spots, you can use a little bit of vinegar or water to help break down the dirt. Now it’s time to tackle those floors! Start by sweeping or vacuuming any loose dirt and debris. Then, mop or vacuum (depending on the type of flooring you have) using a cleaning solution appropriate for your floors. Be sure to get into all the corners and edges, and let the solution sit for a few minutes to break down any built-up dirt or stains.
Cleaning Your Windows
Next, move on to cleaning your windows. Start by dusting the frames and ledges, then move on to washing the glass. You can use a commercial window cleaner or make your own by mixing equal parts of water and vinegar. Wash the inside and outside of your windows, being sure to dry them afterward, so they don’t streak. Once the glass is clean, put the screens back in place and open up the windows to let some fresh air in!
Cleaning Your Furniture
The last step in your deep clean is to clean your furniture. Start by dusting all of your surfaces using a cloth or duster. If you have any particularly dirty spots, you can use a little bit of vinegar or water to help break down the dirt. For tougher stains, you may need a commercial cleaner. Be sure to test any cleaners in an inconspicuous area before using them on your furniture to avoid any damage. Once everything is clean, give everything a good polish with a cloth to make it shine!
Congratulations, you’ve now successfully deep cleaned your house! Many people put off deep cleaning because they don’t know where to start, or they’re worried about doing it wrong. But if you follow these tips, you’ll be able to keep your home in good condition all year round.
