Deep Cleaning for the New Year
Throughout the year, many of us have developed some not-so-thorough cleaning habits. With the new year here, now is the perfect time to revamp our deep cleaning regimen and make sure that we’re setting ourselves up for a clean and organized 2023.
If you’re ready to practice a New Year’s resolution that is sure to make a difference in your cleaning efforts, here are some tips on how you can deep clean your home in preparation for the upcoming year.
Deep Clean from Top to Bottom
If you’re like most people, you have enough on your plate each day that could easily spill over into the next day—or even next week! So you probably don’t get very excited over the thought of spending an entire weekend deep cleaning.
But this is where a thorough, top-to-bottom cleaning can really make all the difference. Decluttering is an essential component of maintaining a clean space.
Start with the highest spaces, like ceiling corners and out-of-reach cabinets. As you move through each room, pay extra attention to areas that you rarely clean, such as the baseboards or window frames.
Focus on Problem Areas
With deep cleaning, it’s important to focus on the spaces that need a bit more love. This might include hard-to-reach areas like baseboards, under appliances, and inside closets. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by how much there is to clean, break up the job into smaller tasks and tackle one room at a time.
Some rooms may need more attention than others, such as the bathroom or kitchen. The former will require you to scrub away soap scum and mold from the bathtub, tile grout, and other surfaces. The latter might call for degreasing stovetops and ovens.
Invest in Quality Cleaning Supplies
Having the right cleaning supplies on hand is essential for deep cleaning. You’ll want to invest in quality products that can tackle dirt and grime, as well as specialized tools for those hard-to-reach areas.
For example, a toothbrush is perfect for scrubbing away mildew from shower doors or tile grout. And a vacuum with attachments allows you to get into tight corners and crevices that a regular vacuum can’t reach.
Create a Cleaning Schedule
Once you’ve gotten through the initial deep cleaning, it’s important to create an ongoing cleaning schedule that covers all the necessary areas in your home. This will help ensure everything remains clean and organized throughout the year.
Set aside time each week to dust, vacuum, and wipe down surfaces. You may also want to designate certain days for scrubbing bathrooms or doing laundry.
The best part? If you break the job into smaller tasks, deep cleaning your home won’t feel nearly as overwhelming.
