It’s important to keep your house clean for a happier and healthier family environment. Having it deep cleaned once or twice a year can definitely make your house fresh and give it a nice clean smell. This is a good time to take care of those neglected areas you usually don’t think of and work on reducing dirt which causes allergies. You can also declutter and dispose of the things you don’t need anymore. Though deep cleaning may take time for an efficient and effective result, learning the basics can make it a lot easier.
To get started, remove your bed sheets, curtains, dirty clothes and put them in the laundry. Clear the surfaces to be cleaned and work your way around to declutter the house. You can start by going from room to room, picking up items that need to go and keeping the useful things in a designated container or box. As you do this task in the other areas of your house, you can spray bleach solution on germ-prone areas such as the toilet, shower and bathroom and let it rest for a while. Remember to check the manufacturer’s manual when using cleaning products.
- Cleaning from the top to the bottom
The areas that are often neglected are the top zones of your home such as high windows, the ceiling, light fixtures, air vents and more. Always work your way from the top of the house to the bottom. When you dust, make sure to start from the ceiling, and then move to the windows, lamps and hanging frames. Clean the baseboards last. This method will prevent the dust and cobwebs from contaminating the already cleaned surfaces of your home.
- Clean one room at a time
Each room of your house needs to be cleaned, decluttered and organized. If you focus on one room at a time, you will able to clean the often-forgotten areas inside the room. Besides, when you finish cleaning one room, you get a feeling of accomplishment which motivates you to go on to the next task.
