From time to time, it is a wise move to give your entire home a thorough deep clean. There is something about deep cleaning that just makes the home so much nicer to live in, and it is a good idea to do this at least once a month or so. Of course, it is also a way of making the home more salubrious, and that’s something that you are going to want to think about as well. But when you do carry out a deep clean, you need to make sure you don’t overlook anything, and in particular the following parts of the home.
Closets & Cupboards
One of the marks of a deep clean is that you are not merely cleaning what is on display all the time. When you clean your home normally, you might well do what most of us do – put a lot of stuff away in the cupboards and closets and in doing so think it is dealt with. But a proper deep clean should include even the inside of the cupboards and closets – which means taking the stuff out of there, cleaning it all and cleaning the inside, and restacking everything. It’s a lot of work, but it’s worth doing, and you won’t then need to do it again for a long time.
Carpet & Upholstery
It’s useful to imagine what you might see around the home if you had a microscope with you. That can help to make it clear what parts of the home are more likely to be dirty and therefore need a lot of work and attention. For instance, you will probably find that your home doesn’t really feel clean until you have properly cleaned your carpet and upholstery, which you can achieve through hiring carpet and upholstery cleaning services or simply by doing it yourself with the right equipment. In any case, it’s a vital part of any deep cleaning process.
Under & Behind Appliances
Few people revel in the experience of really getting behind the appliances and clearing that area out. After all, it is often full of old food and many odds and ends that you would rather not come into contact with – as well as the occasional insect or pest. Of course, that is also exactly why you should make a point of cleaning it out as often as you can, as that way you are going to stop it getting too much worse. Pull out the fridge in particular and clean back there, if you can.
It’s amazing how often people clean their whole home and then completely forget about the windows in the process. But if you are not cleaning your windows, it is going to make a huge difference to how your home looks overall, and how it feels to be inside it too. Make sure you remember to clean both sides of all windows next time you carry out a deep clean. It will make so much difference to the finished result of your deep cleaning process.
