Given many of us are going to be spending a lot of time indoors at the moment, there is a lot to be said for creating a clean environment. Most of us are paying more considerable attention to maintaining a clean home, and this is why a lot of people will be looking to carry out a deep clean.
As letting agents who assist local landlords on a wide range of topics, we have covered the process of a deep clean with many property owners in the area. A deep clean is essential in making rental accommodation look great, and is critical in attracting prospective tenants.
At Andrew Lees Lettings, we are pleased to say we have experienced many deep cleans, and if this is something you are keen to take advantage of in the current climate, we can assist you.
Prepare yourself for the deep clean process
It makes sense to prepare yourself for the deep clean, as this will help you achieve better results. Please follow these tips:
- Declutter your home and attempt to create as much space as you can
- Have a plan of actions which details your cleaning order and include any deadlines you wish to meet
- Make sure you have the right cleaning equipment and materials for the deep cleaning process
With these points taken care of, you can begin the cleaning process. We believe the bathroom and kitchen are the most important rooms when it comes to a deep clean, so we will cover these rooms.
There is a lot of cleaning to do in the bathroom
There is a need for hygiene in the bathroom, so this is a great room to start the deep cleaning process. It is vital to scrub the toilets, sinks, bath-tubs and showers in your home. A quick tip to make the scrubbing process easier is to start with a multi-purpose cleaner, which should remove soap and oil, making the scrubbing process a more straightforward task.
Take the time to remove dirt and scum from around mirrors and glass doors. You should also devote time to tackling grout, and you can use a homemade mix of vinegar, baking soda and water to remove this unsightly feature.
You should use a brush with bristles, with a toothbrush being a great tool. You’ll find the bubbles from the mixture, the brush and some hard work will remove grout, making sure your bathroom looks more appealing.
Attack the kitchen with vigour
The first task in cleaning the kitchen comes with wiping down all surfaces. This is an ideal opportunity to review the food in your cupboards, pantry, shelves, fridge and freezer. Removing these gives you the chance to clean these areas, and you can also check the expiry dates of your food.
For many people, cleaning the oven is a big task. Whether you use store-bought cleaning materials or a homemade concoction, allow plenty of time for this task, and make sure you work hard.
You’ll find cleaning the microwave is a lot simpler. Mix a tablespoon of vinegar with a cup of water, and then microwave this mixture for five minutes. This should allow you to wipe down the inside of the microwave and enjoy an exceptional finish.
With the bathroom and kitchen taken care of, you can focus on the rest of the home.
