Cleaning your house sometimes feels like it never ends, if you do a bit one evening and then a bit the next, by the time you’ve got around the whole house it’s time to start again, so sometimes it’s a good idea to not only do it all in one go but to do a thorough deep clean all in one go. Set aside some time, it doesn’t have to take all day even but give it more time so that you can get stuck into the areas you usually skim over.
How To Deep Clean The Kitchen
If you wash floors and wipe surfaces every week, concentrate on kitchen appliances and cupboards for a thorough clean. Open the windows, get any pets out of the way and go through this list:
Clear out the fridge, remove any old food and wipe out drawers and compartments with a damp cloth
Empty wipe down cupboards and throw away anything that is out-of-date.
Sweep and mop the floors, pull out any removable appliances such as the cooker or the fridge and clean underneath and behind
Scrub your hob using a cleaning product that is suitable for the type of hob you have; it’s likely to be ceramic, glass or hot plate
You can either find a video on how to clean your oven if you’re not sure or, get a professional in to save you the job.
