3 Ways To Prep Your Home For A Deep Clean

While doing surface-level cleaning of your house is likely something that takes place on almost a daily basis, really deep cleaning your home might be something that happens a little less often. So when you finally get the time and energy to do a deep clean of your home, you’ll want to make sure that you have everything in place so that you can clean quickly and effectively.

To help you see how this can be done, here are three ways to prep your home for a deep clean. 

Make Sure You Have The Right Cleaning Supplies

Before you can start with a deep clean, or with any kind of cleaning, you first need to make sure that you have the right cleaning supplies for the type of cleaning you’ll be doing.

Depending on what parts of your home you’ll be doing a deep clean on, the supplies you’ll need will vary. Generally, you’ll want to have enough microfiber cleaning cloths, rubber gloves, scrubbers, brushes, and cleansers. Additionally, if you’re needing to do a deep clean of more specialized parts of your home, like chemically washing your air conditioning unit, you’ll want to either call in a professional to help or do some preliminary research before you get started. This might require a few phone calls or a few trips to the store, so make sure you get these things done before you’re ready to start on your deep cleaning. 

Work From A List Or Game Plan

If there’s just one part of your home that you’re wanting to give a deep clean, you likely won’t need a list to help you keep track. But if you’re going to be deep cleaning your whole house, or even just multiple rooms, it can be beneficial to work from a list or a game plan.

As you prepare this list or game plan, think about which rooms you’ll want to clean first or which tasks you should take on while you still have all of your energy at the beginning of the day. If you have kids or other people living in your home, you may want to base your game plan on when they’ll be around so that you can focus on cleaning without having to worry about other people getting in your way. 

Declutter First

Before you get started on any part of your deep cleaning, the very first thing you’ll want to do is declutter the area that you’ll be cleaning

Generally, this can be done pretty quickly and broadly. The point is to give you easy access to the areas of the room that are needing to be deep cleaned. So as long as you’re able to make space for this, your decluttering will be successful. 

If you’re going to be deep cleaning your home soon, consider using the tips mentioned above to help you prep for this big job.
