What Are Home Deep Cleaning Services?

Home cleaning services offer their customers an immense amount of satisfaction and peace of mind – one less thing to worry about, as the cleaners have it covered. Most cleaning services offer a variety of levels of service to suit the needs of their customers, and they are usually fairly flexible, so as to work around their customers’ busy lives.

Deep cleaning is usually one of those services. This is an intense, multi-hour blitz of the customers’ space. It’s usually one of the pricier elements of any cleaning company, but it accomplishes so much cleaning and isn’t usually done so often as to break the bank, that it’s worth the expense. Deep cleaning services usually tackle every single room in the house in a variety of ways, cleaning appliances and bedding and washing the floors, etc. Here are some of the areas that a deep cleaning, in particular, will focus on:

The Fridge & Freezer

These are often overlooked but can be some of the filthiest places in your home.

Food build-up, old food that needed to be disposed of months ago and is molding, the fridge door shelves that never get a second look… This is one of the overlooked spaces that gets hit hard by a deep clean. Everything is usually removed from both the fridge and freezer, which are then scrubbed, disinfected and then everything that was inside is reorganized and anything that needs to be disposed of goes out with the trash.

The Oven

Most people attempt to keep their oven fairly clean, if not for the annoyance of the smoke alarm going off every time they cook. But grime and burnt-on food contents can still build up over time. This is where a deep clean of the oven is warranted. Deep cleans almost always include the oven. Depending on the severity of the build-up of soot and hardened food, soap, water and elbow grease may be all that is required. But, if the build-up requires a bit of encouragement, cleaners will often use acidic chemicals that eat away at the contents of the oven, making it much easier to clean after a few hours of being left on the muck.

The Bathroom

The bathroom is another area that almost always gets a deep clean, for obvious reasons. This will involve a heavy cleaning of the shower and bathtub, scrubbing off the limescale from the taps and walls. Cleaning the toilet bowl and wiping down all of the toilet surfaces. A deep clean will usually also entail emptying, cleaning and reorganizing the bathroom cupboards and drawers, as well as a wipe down of the sink.

The Floors

Not only will a deep cleaning involve vacuuming, but the floors must be washed and left to dry afterward. This will likely include the old bucket-and-mop routine with soap and water, and if there’s hardwood around, then Pine-Sol and a wet Swiffer will do wonders.

The Rest Of The House

You don’t have to have a specific spot for a deep clean – if you want to get stuck into a spring clean, you can deep clean the entire home. Here are some of the best tips for doing this:

In the bedroom: start by washing your bedding, including the bed skirt, duvet cover, shams, and pillows. To speed up the drying process, run them through an extra spin cycle, and dry your down pillows or duvet on low – put some clean tennis balls in there as well to avoid clumping. While these are washing, clean your mattress. Sprinkle baking soda on it, wait an hour, then vacuum it up with a hose attachment. Flip and repeat. Clear out your cupboards as well and get rid of any clothes you haven’t worn in a while.

The kitchen: Remove everything off the counters, then thoroughly clean and dry them, as well as the backsplash. Wipe your cabinets as well, then cut newspaper or shelf liners to fit inside as this will catch dust in the future so the cleaning won’t be as hectic.

Living room: Use a moist microfiber cloth to dust the front and back of all frames, remove cushions and vacuum every upholstered surface, and make sure you clean around your electronics. Put your rugs and pillows in the wash, wipe down your DVDs, CDs, video games, and other items – and get rid of anything you no longer use or need.

No matter what your cleaning needs, a deep clean is something every homeowner should do every once in a while. It will leave your home feeling fresh as a daisy and leave you satisfied that you don’t need to do much cleaning for a little while.
