How Often Should You Deep Clean Your Home?

By Luke Armstrong

Are you hosting Thanksgiving in your home this year? Do you have guests coming from out of town or children returning home from college for the holiday break? Are you about to change up your décor and furniture in your residence? This is an opportune time to consider deep cleaning your home.

Cleaning help neededDeep cleaning is a comprehensive and thorough cleaning that can be maintained with light dusting, vacuuming and wiping down of surfaces. When you deep clean a home, everything is touched, from the ceiling, down to the baseboards and the floor. You can deep clean your home once a month, once a season or once a holiday season, depending on the amount of traffic your home receives. Deep cleaning a home can take hours, but here are some helpful hints to make this process go smoothly, courtesy of Mrs. Clean.

1.    Put all your cleaning supplies in a tote so you can carry it with you from room to room.
2.    Begin in the back of your home, and work your way to the front.
3.    Clean left to right, back to front, and top to bottom for maximum efficiency.
4.    If it’s dirty, clean it now. It takes less time to remove fresh dirt than caked-on dirt.
5.    Make your every move count. Get organized before you start with the cleaning tote.
6.    Focus on the job at hand. You are cleaning the house; distractions (such as the TV and the phone) will drag out the job.
7.    Try to clean regularly. It’s easier to do routine cleaning and maintain your home than deep clean every week.
