If you have never used a cleaning service, you might be surprised just how many different options they offer.

When you are cleaning your own home, you go into as much detail as you want and feel comfortable with.

However, as cleaning experts at Sunflower Maids suggest, when you are cleaning someone else’s home for a living, you need to follow some rules and go as deep as you are asked to.

The so-called ‘deep cleaning’ is a staple at almost every cleaning company around. However, do you know what it means and what it entails? Here’s a short insight.

What Is Deep Cleaning

It is nothing more than a more detailed and more thorough cleaning of your home.

In most cases, your home can get by with just a regular cleaning, but if something hasn’t been cleaned in a very long time, or has gotten really dirty, a deep cleaning might be required.

When you clean something, you expect it to be clean and look nice after that. If, however, it doesn’t and your home still looks like a hot mess, despite cleaning, it is time to dive a little deeper and hire professional cleaners to help you clean your home in depth.

Deep Cleaning Check List

Here’s what is usually covered by deep cleaning, according to the rooms that need to be cleaned. In most cases, you can pick which parts of your home require deep cleaning, and which ones you would like to skip.

The Kitchen

The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the house, so it is only natural that it will be the quickest to get dirty.

Combined with the food that is prepared and often eaten there, cleaning the kitchen is a lot of work from day to day.

However, if you see that your walls are no longer the vibrant and pure colour you painted them in and that your floor is sticky and your appliances dirty and spineless, it is time for detailed cleaning.

Starting with the cupboards and the appliances, you should particularly pay attention to your stove and oven, as well as the countertop, since those places come in contact with your food and you want them to be clean.

The Bathroom

Another part of the house which people really don’t like to clean is the bathroom. However, it needs to be done, so if you have neglected it for a while, it might be time for deep cleaning.

In most cases, deep cleaning will entail getting rid of limescale which accumulates over time.

Luckily, there are several things which can help you get rid of this nuisance. White vinegar is probably the simplest and the easiest to use. It can get rid of limescale on metal parts like your shower head, faucets and similar items in your bathroom, as well as the tiles on your floor and walls.

Living Room

The first and foremost thing you need to do when deep cleaning your home is dust everything, and I mean everything. That includes the blinds on your windows, all of your shelves, and even the blades of your ceiling fans.

One that is done, the second big thing is vacuuming everything. That includes your furniture and your floors since dust and debris collect in both those places.

If your furniture is stale and stained, some cleaning experts suggest that you should use baking soda to refresh it. Simply sprinkle some on your furniture, leave it to react for an hour or two, and then remove it by vacuuming it.
