Whether your getting ready to sell your home, or just realize its time for some special attention, hiring a professional can help you get those deep clean neglect and hard to reach spaces.
Tidying up your home every day or every few days is a great way to keep your space clean — but scrubbing every nook and cranny on a daily basis is not always a simple task. That’s why a deep clean could be your answer to a spotless home.
Deep cleaning can create a healthier environment by getting rid of dirt, dust and other grime. And if you’re looking for an easy way to maintain a sparkling clean home, especially if you have it currently on the market, hiring a professional is the way to get it done.
What is the difference between cleaning and deep cleaning?
For most, cleaning is a part of everyday life. Daily and weekly tasks such as carpet cleaning, wiping countertops, taking out the trash, doing the laundry and washing dishes are all considered basic cleaning. However, your home needs a deeper cleaning every so often to ensure that all areas are tended to. When you deep clean all areas of the house are given full attention for the cleaning. This does not mean just moving our clutter and wiping the surface, instead it means separating the job areas and attacking them one by one. Such jobs are:
Cleaning inside all kitchen appliances (stove, fridge, etc.), including the range hood.
Cleaning cabinets and drawers.
Cleaning floors, carpets and baseboards.
Wiping down blinds.
Cleaning interior windows.
Cleaning all light fixtures and bulbs.
Dusting ceiling fans.
Cleaning AC/heat vents.
Cleaning the bathroom — all aspects.
Dusting in all areas (living room, bedrooms, common areas).
Necessary tasks and targeted areas may vary depending on the house, but the main goal of a deep clean is to rid your home of contaminants and keep your family healthy. If you’re planning to hire a professional company, sure to ask what their deep-cleaning checklist entails.
