Even if you’re somebody who enjoys cleaning and tidying your home, it’s good to have a deep clean every now and then. This means cleaning every corner and crevice of your home to keep everything in tip-top condition.

Giving your home a deep clean every now and then means even the hard-to-reach areas don’t go missed. It keeps every room clean, hygienic, and inviting, so you can enjoy every second that you spend at home.

Deep cleaning can be overwhelming, especially when you have a larger property. However, splitting up your deep clean into smaller parts can make the task seem less daunting.

It’s much easier to manage your full-house clean when you have a series of manageable tasks to complete.

If you’re not sure where to start with your deep clean, this article should help.

We’re broken down some top tips to ensure you can get every area of your home looking and smelling great.

Set aside a day or two to do some much-needed deep cleaning, grab your rubber gloves, and get started!

Get the Washing Done

When you’re busy working and going to social events, it’s easy to let the pile of dirty clothes get larger and larger. Before you even begin to start cleaning, vacuuming, and wiping around your home, get the washing pile out of the way.

Get the best smelling detergent that you can find and spend some time sorting through the washing. Arrange it into three piles—whites, blacks, and colors.

Once you have started a cycle of washing, you can begin your deep cleaning while you wait for it to finish.


When your home is messy and cluttered, it’s almost impossible to clean properly. Whether you’ve got kids’ toys lying around or excessive memorabilia cluttering up your property, spend some time going through every room and seeing what you don’t need.

If there are items that you think might sell in a charity shop, create a bag of items to donate. Create a second bag of items that you think your friends or family members might want.

If you have some items that won’t sell and are outdated, recycle them or throw them away.

Once you have successfully decluttered, you should have a clearer space to work with when you’re cleaning.

Banish the Dust

Now your home is clutter-free and there isn’t a washing pile in sight, you can start dusting. Grab a microfiber towel and begin wiping the surfaces in your home. Microfiber towels are soft and won’t scratch wood and glass surfaces.

Try to get every surface that you can find, including window ledges, doors, kitchen countertops, side boards, shelves, and even the photo frames and motorized blinds in your home. Dust can build up almost anywhere and you don’t want to miss anywhere.

After wiping down every surface, remove the dust from your floorboards, carpets, and rugs. Give them a quick wipe down but don’t worry too much about getting every corner and crevice, as we’re going to do a deep clean of the flooring later on!

Clean the Window Areas

Windows are easily forgotten when you’re cleaning around your property. However, they shouldn’t be left behind in your deep clean!

Windows are what enable natural light to flow into your home, making it look bright, spacious, and inviting. If dirt and dust are left to build up on your windows, it can reduce the amount of light entering your home, and can make it look dark and unkempt.

Cleaning your windows is fairly straightforward and shouldn’t take you too long. All you will need is a clean microfiber cloth and some glass cleaner.

Spray the cleaning product onto the window and give it a wipe from left to right, slowly working from top to bottom to avoid streaks. Repeat this on every internal window in your home. If you can’t reach the windows on the upper floors of your property, a professional cleaner will have a sturdy set of ladders to reach them.

Deep Clean the Floors

Although you will have already given your floors a wipe down with the duster, it’s time to give them a more intense clean. You are going to need to move your furniture out of the way to expose as much of the flooring as possible.

Now you need to grab your vacuum so that you can suck up any dust, crumbs, and hairs. You will need a powerful vacuum cleaner that has a narrow-headed attachment so that you can get into the corners of every room.

Run the nozzle of the hoover down the edges of the sideboards and work your way around each room in an ordered fashion so that you don’t miss any areas of your home.

If you’re struggling to reach certain areas or your vacuum isn’t quite powerful enough to get everything off the carpets and floorboards, consider calling a professional cleaner to help you out.

Professional cleaners have specialized equipment that will be able to suck up every last piece of dust or hair, leaving your flooring spotless.

After vacuuming, take some carpet freshener and sprinkle it around your home. This will leave your carpets and rugs smelling amazing.

Clean All of the Vents in Your Home

The final step in your deep clean is one that is easily forgotten when you’re in the middle of wiping and vacuuming.

All of the vents and ducts in your home are prone to getting dirty and dusty over time. The accumulation of dust in your vents can reduce the air quality in your home and can make symptoms worse in those with respiratory conditions, like asthma and emphysema.

Often, cleaning the vents in your home is pretty difficult unless you have specialized equipment.

For this step in your deep clean, it’s best to call a professional HVAC cleaning company to get rid of any build-up in your vents and ducts, keeping your home safe and fresh.
