No matter how much or how little traffic comes in and out of your space, the time will come that everything will need a really thorough clean. Whether you perform deep-cleaning monthly or annually, here are five areas to give some special attention to.
To ensure the longevity of carpets, tile, stone or hardwood, it’s important to dedicate some time to giving them a little extra love. DIY work may do the trick in some cases, but sometimes it’s better to just call in a pro. Companies specializing in floor cleaning Manhattan NY are equipped with the equipment needed to remove built-up grime and make floors look their best.
While you may not spend hours staring at your ceiling, a closer inspection might reveal dust and cobwebs that can make a space feel dingy. A long-handled dusting wand or even a clean broom can quickly knock out any offending gunk. While you’re at it, be sure to give ceiling fans and vents a once-over, paying special attention to nooks and crannies which could be hiding nasty stuff (that will probably end up in your air if you leave it behind).
Cleaning windows may be a laborious task, but it can make your whole space feel brighter and cleaner. In addition to cleaning the glass inside and out with streak-free cleaner, don’t neglect window tracks and blinds as well. You should consider cleaning window treatments (curtains, sconces, etc.) as well, making certain to follow manufacturer recommendations for the fabrics.
Art is often an overlooked element when it comes to deep cleaning. A once-over with a soft lint-free cloth may do the trick for sculptures and decorative vessels, while glass-covered picture frames may need the same love as windows with a little streak-free cleaner. To avoid damaging framed art, dampen a cleaning cloth with the glass cleaning solution rather than spraying it directly on the surface.
To keep furniture looking like new, make time for regular cleaning and polishing during your deep clean. Wood furniture should get a sprucing up with an appropriate cleaner or polish. Upholstered furniture may benefit from being vacuumed and having removable covers washed. Heavily soiled surfaces might need to be cleaned with the help of a rug shampoo machine (if safe for the surface), or even professionally cleaned.
While deep-cleaning may be a long process, the investment is worth it. A clean house and well-kept surfaces will serve your family well for many years to come.
