Creating a routine for cleaning your home throughout the week is an excellent way to keep the home from becoming excessively dirty. But, these cleaning steps may not include certain areas of the house because they do not see much use and only get dirty after a long time.
When you need to deep clean your home after dust has built up in hard-to-reach areas and dirt and grime has become challenging to remove, you should know how to prepare beforehand.
Refrigerator and Freezer
A standard house cleaning will not include the cleaning of a refrigerator or freezer's inside. But, you may want these appliances to be thoroughly cleaned once or twice per year. You may want to adjust your shopping leading up to the deep cleaning to avoid a situation in which there is not enough room on the kitchen countertop to put all the items temporarily to reach the inside.
Another task that you may be asked to handle is unplugging the refrigerator and freezer. As long as you keep the doors closed, the items should stay cold long enough until the cleaning is finished.
If you want the medicine cabinets in the bathrooms to be cleaned, you will want to remove everything inside. You can do this by using cardboard boxes that you put in the garage or somewhere else that does not obstruct the area where professionals will be cleaning. Using one box for every medicine cabinet will make it easy to bring items back to their original spots.
Another option is using plastic or reusable bags to store medicine cabinet items. But, this does have an extra risk because dispenser liquids could spill when pressure is put on the pump.
Move Pets Away
Performing a deep clean means that the entire home will be looked through. While you could keep your pets outside, the cleaners may be handling some tasks in these areas. Also, you may have a dog that will constantly bark or jump at the sliding glass door until the service is finished.
The best option is to leave your pets with family or friends or take them to a boarding facility. This will eliminate possible complications that might happen with the cleaners and your pets.
When you take the time to follow these steps and provide the cleaners with the perfect environment to work in, you will end up having a great experience with deep house cleaning.
