Deep Into Your House: The Fundamentals of Deep House Cleaning

Cleaning is an essential part of our daily lives. However, despite the pandemic, it seems that we don’t have enough time for it because of our busy schedules. But by learning the fundamentals of deep cleaning, you should be able to keep your home clean in no time.

Studies have shown that Americans spend about six hours cleaning every week. That’s a lot of hours spent on cleaning if you think about it. However, cleaning experts believe that quality is much better than quantity. This means that you can get a much cleaner home at the same time through deep cleaning. But what is deep cleaning anyways?

Regular Cleaning vs. Deep Cleaning

Regular cleaning is the process of simply cleaning the dirt we see in our homes. It is a less tedious process and one that can be done at any time. However, it can easily accumulate grime, a worse version of dirt, over time.

Grime takes a longer time to remove, and when left for many years, it can be impossible to remove without professional help. Deep cleaning is all about preventing this from happening. It’s all about vacuuming, organizing, and disinfecting while also making your home look much cleaner overall. But deep cleaning certainly takes more time, but by knowing the fundamentals, you can start doing it for a fraction of its estimated time.

Survey Your Home!

The very first thing you should do before deep cleaning is to get a good look at your home. This means exploring both the interior and exterior of your home and see where grime has started to grow. Sometimes grime can include mold, and mold usually means that your home requires some deep cleaning fast. If you can’t seem to find any grime in your home, it doesn’t mean that it’s there. If you don’t know where to start or can’t find any grime, consider your bathroom first.

Consider Your Bathroom First

Your bathroom tends to be moist most of the time. Unfortunately, it can also be one of the dirtiest parts of your home at any given time. If you don’t know where to start, then this should b your priority.

Deep-cleaning your bathroom means disinfecting and scrubbing. However, grime can form on spaces between tiles, leading to accidents once they have accumulated. Additionally, you should also consider drainage problems as the source of grime in your bathroom.

Grime and mold can accumulate through moisture and the lack of sunlight. Both of these are present in your bathroom. Slow drainage can increase the chances of these two accumulating because of moisture. Consider contacting a plumbing service if you are experiencing some drainage problems in your bathroom. Their services can certainly prevent grime and mold from growing in your tiles and bathroom walls.

When deep-cleaning your bathroom, make sure you clean out any soap scum from the showerhead and sink. These are the main areas where mold can grow. They can even block water escaping too! Also, disinfect all parts of your bathroom that are always in contact with human skin, such as the toilet and sink.


The next place you should consider on top of your list for some deep cleaning is your garage. It’s okay to admit that you don’t clean your garage as often as you should, and you shouldn’t because it usually only needs a couple of deep cleaning every year.

Deep-cleaning your garage means scrubbing its dark corners with some soap and high-pressured water. It’s normal for grime to accumulate in these areas, and if you have a high-pressure washer, it should go off easily. When cleaning your garage, you must take out any furniture that might be covering them. Then have a clean under those areas to make sure that no grime has accumulated in those spots.

Once you’ve taken care of these two areas, then each of the rooms of your house comes next. Again, follow the same principle: clean the corners when you can, remove furniture when deep cleaning, and clean under those spots when you can.

Deep Cleaning Is All About a Schedule

The next thing you should do is to set up a schedule and developing a routine out of it. You don’t have to clean every dirt you see spontaneously because once you’ve deep-cleaned, dirt will less likely accumulate in your home.

Once you’ve developed a schedule and routine out of it, you should be able to do it automatically. You’ll also spend less time cleaning your home knowing that you’ve taken preventive measures for dirt to accumulate.

Declutter as Much as You Can

Lastly, if you want to keep your deep cleaning on a tight schedule, consider decluttering your home as much as you can. Remove old pieces of furniture you don’t need so that you have more room to maneuver. Use fewer pieces of furniture that have a lot of space underneath them because it can cover all sorts of dirt. The more you can see and reach under your furniture, the more likely you can reach those parts for deep cleaning.

These are the essentials of deep cleaning and how you can save time when doing it. Deep cleaning is all about disinfection and organization so that dirt and grime won’t accumulate in your home. By having more space, you can do it much quicker in your home.
