The Importance of Deep Cleaning Your Home: Why, When, and What to Do

Cleaning is a habit that requires daily, weekly, and monthly routines. Most of the time, our housekeeping chores revolve around the obvious tasks: dishes, laundry, and tidying up. But let’s face it- month after month, this type of cleaning just doesn’t cut it. There are a couple of times a year when every home needs a really good deep cleaning. This means wiping, vacuuming, and scrubbing every nook and cranny; it’s attending to those easily-forgotten, deep cleaning checklist items that are often a little tedious.

What is Deep Cleaning?

Deep cleaning encompasses the bi-annual duties that don’t get accomplished with the weekly chores. The tasks include things like cleaning behind the refrigerator, cleaning the oven, inside window frames and patio doors, washing blinds and window treatments, and deep dusting of all rooms. They take some planning (and a little extra elbow grease), but they’re important.

Why Is Deep Cleaning Necessary? 

Daily and weekly cleaning take care of the visible grime in our homes, but deep cleaning attends to what is unseen. In the case of dirt and dust, what’s out of sight is not out of mind. Now, more than ever, keeping your living space hygienic and sanitary is of paramount importance. 

In addition to disinfecting, a deep house cleaning will also drastically improve your air quality. Poor air quality can contribute to worsening asthma and allergy symptoms. Additionally, creating clean, ventilated spaces helps prevent growth of mold and mildew. Once it’s developed, mold is difficult and expensive to eradicate, so identifying (and preventing) it early can make all the difference.

When Does My Home Need A Deep Cleaning? 

Generally speaking, twice a year is a good place to begin when devising a deep cleaning house checklist. If you’re new to the cleaning game, spring and fall seasonal cleaning is a reasonable starting point. If you’re more into spacing tasks over time, we recommend following this monthly deep cleaning schedule.
