Household chores can take longer than expected. Homeowners usually clean to keep their house’s essential areas fit-to-be-seen and use just the right amount of effort. However, they leave the time-consuming tasks out of the regular schedule. If you don’t clean thoroughly every few months, dust and debris will accumulate in hidden spots. Most professional home cleaners offer routine cleaning and deep cleaning services to cover these needs.
The main difference between a regular house cleaning service and deep cleaning is attention to detail. Deep cleaning is a top-to-bottom and detailed job, while regular cleaning focuses on keeping your home clean by performing essential and quick cleaning chores. In this blog post, we tell you which cleaning tasks are included in deep cleaning.
The following tasks are commonly included in a professional deep cleaning. Consider that cleaning companies offer some tasks upon request and with an additional cost too. We use a detailed checklist that presents the tasks included, and you can check it on our website.
Dusting light fixtures and light bulbs
Light fixtures are hard-to-reach and easy-to-forget while cleaning. However, dust can turn the light bulbs dull, affecting your room’s illumination. Most cleaning companies will dust your light fixtures during a deep cleaning.
Cleaning the ceiling fans
Ceiling fans work as dust collectors. Dusting your ceiling fan’s blades is mandatory if you don’t want dust dispersed in the air. A cloth or a microfiber duster is enough to keep your ceiling fans clean.
Vacuuming over the furniture
It is incredible how much dirt and stuff your furniture can retain. Cleaning your couch can lead you to find a long-lost object! During a deep cleaning, vacuuming your furniture should not be avoided.
Dusting window sills and ledges
It’s normal to find more dirt around your windows—even dead bugs and cobwebs can start building up. Besides improving the view, cleaning your window sills and ledges is essential for maintaining your home’s air quality and is an important task any thorough service should include.
Cleaning appliances’ surfaces
Cleaning your appliances might require different methods to prevent damage. However, most cleaning companies will wipe down most visible appliances during a deep cleaning.
Cleaning inside microwave, oven, and fridge
You’ll have to clean inside major appliances sooner or later. Although most cleaning companies clean inside the fridge, freezer, and oven, they are likely done only upon request.
Dusting knickknacks and framed photos
During everyday chores, knickknacks are left aside—cleaning one by one might take all day long. Nonetheless, every item in your home collects dust and should be cleaned occasionally. Most deep cleaning services include dusting knickknacks, framed photographs, and other decorations.
Cleaning door frames and baseboards.
Homeowners regularly clean their floors, but baseboards and doors don’t receive the same attention. A common task during a deep-clean is wiping down these areas to take off any stain or dirt.
Cleaning the bathroom from top to bottom
Inside and outside the toilet is included in any deep cleaning checklist. Professionals should be able to clean and sanitize the sink, faucet, vanities, and bathtub.
Don’t forget the walls!
Walls get dirty too, but professionals often don’t include them in a standard cleaning service. Ensure that every deep cleaning in your home has at least wall spot cleaning.
