How to Deep Clean Every Room of Your House or Office

Deep cleaning your home doesn’t have to be a daunting, unattainable process. Utilize these suggestions to finish each area fast and successfully.

It’s important to give your home a full cleaning every so often, even if you keep it quite neat and tidy. In order to keep from feeling overwhelmed, it’s best to divide the major cleaning of a house into smaller, more doable activities. Our comprehensive cleaning checklist will get you started with just six simple steps. After you’ve finished those, you can continue on to the tasks that are unique to each individual room. This house cleaning checklist will come in handy when every day’s stuff has started to pile up. You may also incorporate these methods into your regular spring and fall cleaning routines. It won’t be long before your house is spotless and ready for a white-glove inspection.

How to Deep Clean Your House

Start with these thorough cleaning suggestions as you walk through each area in your house to speed up the process.

1. Declutter Before Deep Cleaning

Any noticeable clutter that is out of place in the space should be either relocated or, even better, taken out entirely. Put things that are hidden behind closed doors on a different day on your cleaning checklist to make it easier to keep track of everything. Getting rid of clutter makes it easier to deep clean and looking at your clean surfaces may encourage you to keep cleaning.

2. Start High, Go Low

Take on the following major, difficult-to-reach surfaces in that order: baseboards, walls, rest of the trim, ceiling, ceiling trim, light fixtures (including bulbs), and walls. A clean microfiber mop ($12, The Home Depot) or a duster with a telescoping handle ($18, Bed Bath & Beyond) are the finest tools for these surfaces. Bonus: Since these tools are usually tiny, you can access the space below the sofa without moving it. You only need to sprinkle the mop with water above eye level. Use warm water with a drop of dish soap on surfaces that are closer to the floor because they are prone to collecting dirt and dust. To prevent mould and mildew in bathrooms, add a few drops of white vinegar to the mixture. Use a microfiber towel ($3, Target) for areas where using a mop would be uncomfortable or inconvenient. Rinse frequently, then completely wrings.

3. Deep Clean Windows

The payoff from cleaning windows is substantial despite how easy it is. Vacuum the tracks and sills first. Then spray glass cleaner ($4, Target) all the way down the window. After giving the cleaner a moment to work, squeegee it off. It will be simpler to see and remove streaks if you wipe in one way on interior windows and another on exterior ones.

4. Spruce Up Window Treatments

Avoid the hassle of removing the blinds or drapes. Use the brush attachment on your vacuum to just suction them. As you clean the rod and rings, fluff the curtains in the dryer for a few minutes rather than washing and ironing them. Then hang them back up immediately.

5. Remove Dust from Surfaces

Use furniture cleaning and polish ($8, The Home Depot) and a soft cloth to clean any remaining hard surfaces, such as wood furniture, shelves, built-ins, etc. Put a clean cotton tube sock on your dominant hand and use it to quickly dust surfaces while using your other hand to push things out of the way. The lampshades should then be rubbed using a lint roller.

6. Deep Clean the Floors

You’ll need to relocate the furniture, including larger items like mattresses and sofas, to do this properly. Place furniture slides ($7, Target) under the legs of large pieces to make shifting them easier. Then use the crevice tool on your vacuum to remove the debris from baseboards and corners. Use a microfiber mop and the proper cleaner for the surface to clean a hard floor. Now is an excellent time to hire a cleaner of expert calibre if you have carpet. And if you have children or pets, consider making an investment in your own.

How to Deep Clean Your Bedroom

  1. Launder Bedding: Even down-filled items like the bed skirt, duvet cover, shams, and pillows should be washed. To speed up drying, give them an additional spin cycle. To minimise clumping, dry down pillows on low with clean tennis balls. Outdoor air drying is the best method for air-drying synthetic cushions. Visit the laundromat and use one of the extra-large front-loaders for hefty comforters.
  2. Freshen Mattress: Clean your mattress while your bed is apart. After covering the mattress with baking soda, vacuum it up with the hose attachment after letting it sit for an hour. Repeat the process after flipping or rotating the mattress as directed by the manufacturer.
  3. Declutter Closet: Take out your unworn clothing from the previous season and place it in a bag for donation or consignment. then get matching hangers for your clothing. You’ll work harder to maintain order if your closet looks great.

How to Deep Clean the Kitchen

  1. Polish Cabinets: Before cutting newspaper or shelf liners ($5, Bed Bath & Beyond) to fit within, wipe the exposed tops. The liner traps the dust, so the only thing you’ll need to do the next time is change the paper. Next, use wood cleaner to clean the cabinet doors on the front and rear (for painted or laminate surfaces, use warm water with a squirt of dish soap). The tube-sock trick is also available here: Spray the cleanser on one and each hand, then wipe in a circular manner.
  2. Deep Clean In and Around Appliances: Wait until the refrigerator is almost empty before cleaning both the inside and outside. For the stove and dishwasher, repeat the process. To access the surrounding walls and the floor, if at all possible, remove appliances out from the wall.
  3. Tidy Countertops: Clear the counters of everything, thoroughly clean and dry them, and then do the same for the backsplash. Return only what you use every day after the surfaces have dried. For anything else, look for hiding places.
  4. Bonus Deep Cleaning TaskClear the shelves in your pantry, then clean them. As you clean, think about using a sizable roasting pan to capture crumbs. If you want to increase the efficiency of your refrigerator, you may also rent an air compressor and blast the dust off its coils.

How to Deep Clean the Bathroom

  1. Wash Shower Curtain: Most shower curtains can be washed on the gentle cycle with cold water if you first check the label. Curtain should be taken down and rehung before the dryer is turned to the lowest setting. The plastic shower curtain may be either replaced ($3, Target) or washed on cold and hung to dry.
  2. Make Shower Doors Sparkle: Most shower curtains can be washed on the gentle cycle with cold water if you first check the label. Curtain should be taken down and rehung before the dryer is turned to the lowest setting. The plastic shower curtain may be either replaced ($3, Target) or washed on cold and hung to dry.
  3. Declutter Vanity and Cabinets: Put some order in the disarray under the sink. Take everything out, throw away the unnecessary items, clean up the necessary items, and then reload it by category. Repetition is required for your medicine cabinet and any other cabinetry.

How to Deep Clean the Living Room and Family Room

  1. Freshen Furniture: With the brush attachment, vacuum all upholstered surfaces, including the backs, after removing the cushions.
  2. Dust Frames: Remove all framed artwork and photographs, then use a moist microfiber towel to dust the front and back of each piece. Avoid immediately spraying anything against the glass. It can harm the photograph and mat if it seeps into the frame’s corners.
  3. Dust Under Electronics: To clean the area around your devices, you don’t need to unplug and move everything. Simply sweep a $14 ultra-thin dusting wand from Bed Bath & Beyond underneath the parts.
  4. Bonus Deep Cleaning Task: All the throw pillows and their covers should be washed. Examine the CDs, DVDs, video games, and other items stowed away behind closed doors as well. Do you have anything you could get rid of or perhaps even sell for some money?
