If you feel like it’s time to for deep cleaning your home but don’t know where to begin, we are here to help. Deep-cleaning is a daunting task for even the most experienced homeowner, however, keep reading for a checklist that will get you on your way to thoroughly clean home in no time.
Deep-Cleaning for Your Home • 5 Points
1 • Pick a Dry Weekend
As far as possible, try to choose a weekend with no rain, because you will need to be in and out of the house as you progress with your deep-cleaning. A weekend is more than enough time to finish the clean, and with all family members working together, it makes the job easier.
2 • Junk Removal
The best way to remove all junk and rubbish is to call a local company that specializes in junk removal in Sydney. Simply designate an area outside your home to pile all rubbish or rent extra trash bins if you have a particularly large job.
Then, when you are ready, call the waste removal company. They take care of both the loading and removal which makes it easy for you. Best of all, they operate in an eco-friendly manner, ensuring that most of your waste is recycled.
3 • Cleaning Equipment
Before you begin the deep-cleaning, be sure to get your tools and cleaning equipment in order. The list is long and includes brooms, brushes, rubbish bags, and, of course, mops and buckets. Old sheets can be used to cover the carpets and any immovable furniture. In addition, you also need some bathroom cleaning products and some glass cleaner.
4 • Work One Room at a Time
Take a tip from the professionals and work one room at a time. To do this, start with a complete vacuuming and dusting from the ceiling down. Then close the door and leave it for 15 minutes for all the dust to settle. Then clean the windows, brush off the walls and polish the furniture. Finally, spray some air freshener and leave the windows open for a few hours.
Additionally, you might ask each of your children to be responsible for the cleaning of their own room, which helps get the job done sooner. A family team effort is always the best solution when deep-cleaning your home!
5 • Deep Cleaning the Carpets
Search online for a local carpet cleaner and have him arrive after you complete cleaning. Deep-cleaning the carpets makes the interior smell fresh and that complements the hard work you have done, and if you have solid timber floors, the carpet specialist would likely have a floor polishing machine that can restore the floors to their former glory.
With adequate cleaning materials and well laid out plan, before you know it, your cleaning is done and is ready for the carpet cleaner. At project end, rubbish removal is performed by a local clearance company and signifies the completion and success of your deep-cleaning project.
