There’s almost nothing more satisfying than a clean home. However, getting it clean can be a bit of a challenge when you’re looking at cleaning your entire home. There are different methods for each surface and different focal points for each of the spaces in your home.
Types of Cleaning Methods
Do you want to upgrade your cleaning know-how without extra fuss? Take a look at the refresher below!
Many bedrooms have carpets or, at the least, area rugs. Remember that carpets need regular vacuuming, even more often than sweeping your other kinds of flooring. Every quarter or at least every six months, you’ll want to consider a deep conditioning/shampooing treatment to help really draw out the stubborn dirt, bacteria, allergens, and more.
You can also help out your health even more by regularly vacuuming and spot-treating your mattress. Since you spend 6-8 hours in your bed every night, it only makes sense to keep your bed clean and safe. Obviously you are washing your sheets, but taking care of your mattress is essential as well.
In the kitchen, you’ll want to equip your cleaning supplies with different cleaners for appliances, flooring, countertops, and more. You’ll also want to focus on cleaners that are designed for kitchens. In this way, you’ll know that they are food-safe. Even food-safe cleaners often require you to rinse the surface off with water afterward, though. So be sure to read the labels and fine print.
The other facet of thorough kitchen cleaning is keeping your surfaces safe from food-borne bacteria from meat and produce. Take a few extra minutes in the cleaning aisle at the store to help find the right products for killing common food pathogens!
The bathroom is a unique space that gets a lot of use, moisture, steam, and mildew. This is also a common area for bacteria, too. Try to get designated bathroom cleaners and also clean your bathroom frequently — every few days in busy households or once a week in “quieter” homes.
Take special care to get toilet cleaners, grout scrubbers for floors or bathtubs, and even drain cleaners for these high-use areas!
The main living areas
Did you know that soft furnishings, such as couches and pillows, need regular deep cleaning, too? These are comfortable areas of your home where the whole family hangs out. You can help keep them clean by regularly cleaning furniture, coffee tables, end tables, and other surfaces regularly.
Don’t forget those frequently touched surfaces, either, such as doorknobs, light switches, and lamp pulls!
Tech cleaning basics
Many of us are guilty of basically never cleaning smartphones, tablets, digital thermostats, and more. Since they are sensitive screens, you should use designated cleaners for all of your tech surfaces. You also should use a soft microfibre cloth. These tech devices should be cleaned at least once a day to keep bacteria at bay!
Every surface and room has unique needs
It’s pretty impressive when you see how much know-how goes into cleaning methods and zone-based attention to detail. Are you looking for professionals to help you manage all of that without you having to remember it all? Hiring professional regular cleaners for your home can be a great way to enjoy the full home cleaning experience without having to dedicate the time to it! After all, the only thing more satisfying than enjoying a clean home is having someone else clean it for you!
A clean home is a healthy home, and it’s reassuring to know that the right guidance like this can help you make cleaning better and easier all around. If that aligns with the goals that you’ve set for your home, then now all you have to do is put them to work however best suits you!
