Keeping your home clean isn’t easy with our tight daily routine. Apart from daily laundry and dishwashing, we can barely manage enough time to clean other stuff at home. That’s why deep cleaning home once every weekend is a famous routine many people follow instead of cleaning daily.
Now deep cleaning might sound easier than cleaning daily, but still, it’s challenging enough for many people. Since deep cleaning at the weekend involves lots of cleaning activities all around the house at once, you can’t accomplish it without proper planning.
That’s why I have brought you the perfect guide to deep clean your house this weekend. This is sort of a checklist that’ll help you cover every aspect of deep cleaning. Let’s see how you can do it without investing all your time and energy.
Create a checklist
The first thing you need to do to clean your home is making proper plans according to the time in hand. As there are many things you’ll have to cover in a single day, creating a checklist is the best way to do this. This way, you won’t miss out on anything in a hurry.
The checklist should have a primary and secondary list of places and things you are going to clean. With the checklist, you’ll feel more like getting close to your goal.
Deep cleaning the living room
Your living room can be an excellent place to start since it’s the shared space for every family member to use. That’s why it tends to get dirty quickly too. Start by the couch because it’s most likely to be messy duty TV sessions over the week. Just below the sofa, you might even find food lying around.
After the couch, dust the ceiling walls and vacuum the floor. The TV is an integral part of your living room. So, you can also give it a good wipe alongside other art and showpieces around the living room.
Deep cleaning the kitchen area
Every kitchen needs a quick daily cleaning to keep things tidy. However, if you don’t have time for that, a deep clean on the weekend will also suffice. First, start with the kitchen appliances. Please give them a good wipe with liquid cleaners to remove the stain’s fingerprints and get the shine back on the outside.
For cleaning the inside of these appliances, you can use vinegar and baking soda mixtures. Next, wipe the shelves, kitchen top, and countertop with a wet towel and liquid cleaner.
Deep cleaning the bathroom
Now the last place I have on the checklist is the bathroom. Since a dirty bathroom can crawl with germs and we all spend our time there, it’s essential to clean it properly. The quickest of doing that is by cleaners from the store, but you can also utilize home ingredients like vinegar and baking soda.
Give the cabinets and countertops a good wipe with an all-purpose cleaner. As for the tub and toilet, you will have to use a heavy-duty cleaner, scrub the inside with a brush and then finish by running water.
Vacuum and dusting
Consider this the finishing touch of your deep cleaning. Apart from these critical areas I talked about above, there will be other areas in your house that’ll require dusting or vacuuming. Vacuuming is a must, especially for windows, curtains, and other hard-to-reach places. Finally, get a mop and wipe the floor to finish the deep cleaning.
