What’s Included in Deep Cleaning?
Updated: Jun 5
Homes should be deep cleaned 3-4 times a year, but what exactly does deep cleaning mean? That is exactly what we as a San Diego deep home cleaning company discuss throughout the sections below. So if you want to know what “deep cleaning” at home means, read on!
Cleaning Hard-To-Reach Places
The reason why it’s called “deep” cleaning is that you’re cleaning hard-to-reach places as well as surfaces that don’t get cleaned regularly.
You see, hard-to-reach places are ideal homes for dirt, mold, mildew, dust, allergens, and other elements that make homes dirty and humans sick. So it’s nice if the noticeable parts of your home are clean, but if the hard-to-reach spots aren’t, it’s not truly sanitary.
A list of hard-to-reach places in homes would go on forever, so we’ll just say—if it doesn’t get cleaned often or has never been cleaned, clean it!
Cleaning Door Knobs, Railings, Switches, Etc.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the things we touch every day are often the dirtiest, so why do we forget to clean them regularly? Who knows!
The important thing is that you clean these surfaces, otherwise, you’ll just be spreading dirt and germs from surface to surface.
Here are some of the surfaces you should clean during a deep cleaning:
- Door knobs
- Light switches
- Window latches
- Furniture knobs & handles
- Faucet handles & levers
- Appliance knobs & buttons
Rug & Carpet Cleaning
Rugs and carpets experience foot traffic nearly every day, yet these floor coverings are rarely cleaned as much as they should be.
Carpets and rugs can be home to all kinds of harmful elements, including dirt, dust, mold, allergens, dust mites, carpet beetles, and moths.
The thing about rugs and carpets is it’s hard to tell when they’re overly dirty. Unless you spill something or wipe mud on them, you probably won’t notice when they become dirty, as this happens slowly over time.
A lot of people have their rugs and carpets cleaned by professionals since they possess the tools, know-how, and cleaning products necessary to make rugs and carpets spotless and sanitary.
If you use your range all the time, it’s good to give it a thorough cleaning 3-4 times a year.
You’ll need a cleaner that’s meant for ranges and both soft- and coarse-bristle brushes to clean a range efficiently. And to ensure you’re not in danger while cleaning, cut off the supply of gas to the range.
Deep cleaning a range not only makes it safer and sanitary but also elongates its lifespan.
Basement & Attic Cleaning
In many homes, both the basement and attic are full of junk. That doesn’t make a lot of sense since both rooms provide access to the home’s structure and other essential fixtures, like the water shut-off valve, the vent pipe, and the chimney.
So if your basement and attic are full of junk, the first thing you should do—before you deep clean it—is to declutter. Get rid of everything you don’t need to free up much-needed space. Then you can clean the basement and attic from top to bottom.
