Once a year or so comes the dreaded day of the mammoth clean up. We’re talking deep cleaning, getting rid of anything old and unused, and transforming your home into a new world of freshness. To some people, this day is an absolute nightmare. It’s effort, it’s messy, but it’s something we all have to do if we want to keep our homes in the best condition possible. If you feel as though your home is coming up to its mammoth clean update, then here are a few things you can do to make sure everything is spic and span.
Deep cleaning is a pain in the bum, but the satisfaction you get from it is amazing. All of the sudden your home will smell fresher than it has ever done before, and you’ll notice that it looks cleaner all around. Now, the main rooms you want to focus on are your children’s bedrooms, and rooms such as the bathroom and the kitchen. For your children’s bedrooms, you can rope them in to help you out. Move the bed out of the way to get a good hoover all round, then get your polish out and polish from top to bottom. Even the skirting board on the floor needs to be cleaned. You can use a vinegar cleaning solution to get those nasty finger marks off the windows and don’t forget to give the draws a good clean out to check for things that don’t fit anymore. As for a room like the kitchen, you’re going to need to use a bit more elbow grease. Start by cleaning out the cupboards, being sure to throw anything out of date. Then use a normal store brand cleaning solution to give them a good clean. Then, if you use baking soda and vinegar together, it creates a high powered cleaning solution that will get rid of any tough stains or hidden grime. Do the kitchen top to bottom in this, then go over it was a store brand, nicely fragranced kitchen cleaner to get rid of the vinegar smell.
Getting rid of all the things you might not want in your home is essential for a mammoth clean up. If you are thinking of getting some new furniture, the best thing you can do to get rid of your old is skip bin hire to have a place to put it. Hiring a skip bin will also allow you to clear absolutely everything out of your house that you’ve been meaning to for years, plus it’ll all get taken away for you so you don’t have to worry about it! Just make sure you’re going through every drawer to find absolutely everything you might not want or the skip bin will go to waste.
