How Often Should You Deep Clean Your Home?
Category : Tips
Be honest. How often do you clean your home? We know –the only task more daunting than cleaning is cleaning every nook and cranny of your home.
For those who dislike cleaning, rejoice! Not every area of your home needs to be cleaned every single week. You can get away with cleaning some parts of your home semi-annually or even annually. From ovens to carpets to bedsheets, we compiled a list of items and how often you should clean them.
Beds: Wipe down your headrest every week and clean your mattresses between every three to six months. As a DIY technique, rub some baking soda on the mattress with a dry brush. Remove the remaining baking soda after an hour.
Bedsheets and pillowcases: Wash them at least once a week. If you’ve just recovered from an illness, it’s also best to change them as soon as possible to get rid of germs.
Your bed sheets and pillowcases might look clean but they contain a ton of dirt, sweat, and body oils. Wash your sheets at the hottest temperature recommended on their care label.
Sofas: Wipe down your sofa with a disinfectant cloth every week. Small bits of food may get stuck between crevices so it’s best to vacuum those areas once in a while. To avoid damaging your upholstery, you might want to consider hiring professional home cleaning companies every six months to one year.
Carpets: Vacuuming doesn’t count as carpet cleaning. Opt for professional steam cleaning every 6 to 12 months. Perry Maintenance makes use of hot water extraction technology to clean and restore your carpet.
Bathtub: No, your bathtub doesn’t clean itself each time you take a bath. Remember to scrub it down every week. While it may seem like a hassle, this is one step that should not be skipped!
Oven: Clean once every six months. Use a deep-cleaning spray or cream. To protect the interior of the oven, do not scour away tough grime.
Microwave: Wipe it down after every use. Do a deep clean twice a month with a DIY concoction. Simply mix half a cup of water and half a cup of white vinegar in a heat-safe dish. Microwave it until the window steams up, then clean the interior with a sponge.
Refrigerator: The refrigerator is supposed to be a clean place to store your food, right? Wrong. According to research, salmonella, yeast, and mold are commonly found in the refrigerator so clean it once a month to get rid of nasty bacteria.
Washing machine: Make an effort to clean it at least once a month. Add a cup of white vinegar to the detergent drawer and run an empty hot cycle.
