Some of the furniture in here is just too big and bulky to move out of the room. This means you’re going to need to tackle it twice. Tackle the windows and high corners first. Clearing dust and cobwebs help to give the room a fresh look. You may want to take down the drapes so they can be washed in the machine too.
Move everything you can to the center of the room. You may need to remove ornaments and other tabletop items from the room first. Now you can clean the carpet or floors where the furniture once stood. You should also wipe down the skirting boards to freshen them and remove the dust. Once all this is dry, you can pop the furniture back and take on the center of the room.
If your bedroom is upstairs, you may only be able to tackle the inside of the windows safely. Leave the outside window cleaning to the professionals. Moving the bed could be hard work on your own so see if a member of your family can help give it a push. Sometimes dust and hair can accumulate under there. Get the vacuum to work on each of those little corners.
It is thought that steam cleaning can kill all bugs and mites. A hand-held steamer on your divan and mattress could be just the thing you need. You might even be able to tackle the pillows and headboard.
The kitchen is where the toughest jobs can be found. You’ll be amazed at how many stains and marks you can find when you start your deep clean. Kickboards can get quite scuffed over time. You may need to get down onto the floor to give them a buff. If any lights are out, now may be the perfect time to replace the bulbs.
Grouting and tiles can be tough to clean sometimes, especially in the kitchen. Steam cleaning is the most environmentally friendly way to tackle kitchen grime. Be careful to avoid any electrical items and sockets, though. If you’re feeling confident, you might even choose to freshly grout the tiles to bring them back to life.
It’s not the nicest of jobs to have to do, but at least we only need to do it once a year. However, if you keep on top of some of these pesky jobs, you can avoid having to get it all done in one go. Why not start a cleaning schedule so you can spread the jobs throughout the year?
