Deep Cleaning Your Home? Consider These First

When you first buy a home, it’ll be quite clean. That’s only natural; the seller and estate agent will want the house to look as nice as possible. After living there a while, you’ll find that it has a more ‘lived-in’ appearance. Deep cleaning your home will be the answer to this.


If it’s your first time giving your home a deep clean, you mightn’t know where to start or what to focus on. You can take advantage of multiple tips and tricks to pull off a deep clean quickly and easily.

Before you start, however, you’ll need to know a few things in particular.

1. What To Know Before Deep-Cleaning Your Home

The Importance Of Declutter

Clutter isn’t going to be your friend if you want a clean-looking home. Getting rid of as much of it as you can is recommended. Investing in high-quality storage solutions can help with this. Making sure these fit in a room without being bulky is vital. That’ll cut down on the clutter without you needing to throw too much out.

The Difference Between Soft Washing & Pressure Washing

Soft washing vs pressure washing isn’t something that many people know about in too much detail. Some mightn’t even know there’s a difference. Both can have their pros and cons, although they’re both typically only recommended for certain areas.


Pressure washing, for instance, can be much better at cleaning your gutters, patio, outdoor walls, and much more. Soft washing, on the other hand, uses various chemicals to get rid of any dirt. It’ll also get rid of any algae, among other dirt.

Where pressure washing primarily uses the force of the water – possibly alongside some chemicals and other supplies – soft washing focuses on these chemicals. Knowing which one is right for you is something you’ll need to spend time thinking about.

Once you know your needs, determining which is better for you should be relatively easy.

Where To Start

Knowing where to start when you’re deep cleaning your home can be difficult. It could be worth starting in the kitchen or living room, as these can take the most effort. Regardless of which room you choose, you should start with its ceiling and make your way down.

Dust and other dirt could fall to the floor when you’re cleaning. It would help if you didn’t have to worry about this. If you’ve already cleaned the floor, however, then you’ll end up needing to do it again. Making your way from the ceiling down, however, negates that issue.

2. Wrapping Up

Deep cleaning your home for the first time can be daunting. Knowing all of the above, however, can simplify the process. It’ll also make sure that you’ve got everything covered. Though it could take time and effort to get your house as clean as you’d like, it’ll be worth the effort.

Once you have a deep clean done, you should start cleaning as you go. That’ll cut down on the need for more regular cleans in the long term. Consider it a time investment so that you don’t need to put in as much effort relatively soon.
