Deep Cleaning Your Home

We all know the importance of keeping up with a general cleaning of your home on a regular basis for maintenance purposes; but is it also highly recommended to hire a maid or cleaning service quarterly and prior to any special occasions for a deep cleaning.

A deep clean will leave your home looking and smelling like new; I equate it to that “new car smell”.

It is essentially a floor to ceiling cleaning and also includes cleaning of the following: the inside of your appliances (refrigerator, oven, and of course microwave), the inside of your windows and wiping down all of the baseboards in the home – all of those lingering jobs that you hate!

While not needed for every cleaning, many clients choose to receive an initial deep clean and then proceed with a regular general cleaning schedule, be it weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly (other options are available).  This is a great way to “start from square one” and be able to come home from a hard day’s work to a lovely clean home!

So… what are you waiting for??

  1. This is some really good information about how to deep clean your home. I like that you pointed out that deep cleaning means coming ceiling to floor. It does seem like it would be a good idea for us to have a professional service come do it.

  2. I completely agree that a deep clean will leave your home looking and smelling like new. That is a great way to help your home feel happier and more put together. In my opinion, when you have a clean home you like being there more.

  3. thanks Amanda,
    I like the smelling like new after the deep cleaning.

  4. Hi amanda
    Thanks for sharing such a nice post with us.
    I prefer to take help from professional cleaning company for deep cleaning, coz they knew their job and they do it perfectly.
    Thanks again

  5. I liked how you associated a clean house to having that “new car smell” in your home. That seems like a good way to express how it feels to come home to a clean house that smells nice. I suppose that’s one reason why hiring a cleaning service is a good idea. It would be really nice to know that my home will be squeaky clean when I return from work, so I should look into hiring a maid to clean my house every week. Thanks for posting this!

  6. professionals are always good than us then do know there work very well.

  7. I love that you included cleaning all of the appliances during a deep cleaning. I often overlook the appliances because they are not built into the home. I think a great time to do this would be in the spring when the house needs to be freshened up after the winter season.

  8. I realize that cleaning, decluttering, and organizing may possibly not be anything your appreciate, but make it as enjoyment as you are able to! Get the whole family involved, produce a game of it, strategy a time every day that you walk around the house and get clutter and clean up!

  9. I do think it is important to keep a clean home. I don’t think you have to do a deep clean daily or weekly, but it is an important thing to do. Sometimes you don’t have time to take care of everything, or maybe you don’t like to do certain tasks, or maybe you aren’t good at getting certain things clean enough or there are bigger jobs like carpet cleaning and air duct cleaning – then I would recommend having a professional service come in. Great information, thanks for sharing!

  10. Hey Amanda, I appreciate you writing this. I own a home cleaning and house keeping business in the Rock Hill south Carolina area, and am always looking to help my clients and add value to my house cleaning services. This is a great little life hack. I tried this the other day because I read your article awhile back, and it worked great. I just wanted to say thanks!

  11. Clean your office yourself and get it cleaned by the maid then you will not be able to get the desired cleanliness. You must rely on the professionals for deep cleaning services as it will not only make the place spic and span, but will also make it germs-free.
