We all know that cleaning your home is a necessary measure that cannot be avoided and is the best method to keep it spotless, but how often do you really need to deep clean your home? Cleaning various areas of the house on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis is recommended to keep your home looking great.
What should you clean daily?
Anywhere you store or prepare food should be kept as clean and sanitary as possible. Using antibacterial spray/wipes to wipe down your worktops, splashbacks, and any table surfaces is a great way to keep germs away while keeping your kitchen looking shiny and clean.
To avoid a build-up of germs and maintain a sanitary bathroom, clean your bath/shower and toilet on a daily basis. Wiping down surfaces/tiles and cleaning your sink is a simple way to keep your bathroom looking new while also preventing the growth of damp, limescale, and mould.
What should you clean weekly?
We spend a lot of time resting in our beds, and as a result, dirt, sweat, and body oils can accumulate in the sheets. Cotton bedsheets should be washed in hot water to destroy bacteria, whereas polyester bed sheets should be washed in warm water and then hung or tumble dry.
Once or twice a week, vacuuming, polishing glass surfaces, and fluffing up any pillows is an excellent method to keep your living room clean and presentable to guests.
Giving your kitchen appliances a thorough deep clean is essential for maintaining them in good working order and creating a sanitary environment in which to prepare food. Cleaning the interior of your microwave, oven, and hobs at least once a week will help to reduce the amount of dirt and grease that accumulates over time.
What should you clean monthly?
Even if dust isn’t always visible, especially on high-up items, it’s still necessary to dust your home to avoid dust accumulation. To improve the appearance of your home, dust your curtains/blinds, light fixtures, and any other hard surfaces. Dust collection is a real problem that, if inhaled, can cause respiratory issues in some people.
Vacuums, washing machines, dishwashers etc.
Make sure that the filters in your household cleaning appliances, such as vacuums, washing machines, and tumble dryers, are cleaned or replaced on a regular basis.
What should you clean yearly?
Cleaning things like your windows, gutters, and carpets should be done at least once or twice a year to keep your house looking nice and to save your household furniture from wearing out.
