Apart from giving you a sense of ease and calmness, it protects you and your loved ones from all kinds of harmful viruses. So next time you think cleaning is not your cup of tea, you might want to consider these efficient and less time-consuming tricks that will make it much simpler.
How to deep-clean your home?
1. Start decluttering before cleaning:
Find a safe place where you can get rid of all the de-cluttered things. Clearing clutter makes deep cleaning easier and seeing those tidy surfaces can help boost your motivation to keep going the long way.
2. Deep clean windows first:
Cleaning the windows is easy. First, you need to vacuum the tracks and then spray the window with a glass cleaner. Let the cleaner stay for a minute, then squeeze it off. If you wipe in one direction on inside windows and another on outside ones, it will be easier to fix streaks.
3. Time for the surfaces:
Make sure you wipe all the hard surfaces with a cleaner and a soft cloth. You can also put a clean cotton tube sock on your dominant hand to dust surfaces, moving objects out of the way with the other hand. Usually a lint roller for the lampshades is a good idea.
4. Floors require good deep-cleaning:
First move the furniture including the beds and sofas. Then use the vacuum cleaner extensively to remove all the dust that has settled on the floor. If you have a hard floor, clean it with a microfiber mop and the appropriate cleaner for the surface.
That was a clear procedure from where to start and what to use in your home. Now we move into the most interesting part – the tips and tricks for good and spotless deep-cleaning. Without much ado, let’s get started with it.
