Deep Cleaning Kitchen Guide

The prospect of deep cleaning your kitchen may seem a little daunting, however, once you know where to start and what to tackle, you’ll soon be on your way. 

Before You Get Started 

You firstly need ot make sure you have all of the basic supplies such cleaning products, rubber gloves, sponge scourers, a number for ductwork cleaning services, paper towels, etc. 

Some of the cleaning products you may want to think about include: 

  • Disinfectant spray 
  • Surface cleaner
  • Floor cleaner
  • Over cleaner
  • Wood or metal polish
  • Anit-bac cleaner 
  • Floor cleaner 

Make sure any washing up is done and put away and you are ready to start your deep clean.

Kitchen Cupboards and Surfaces

Surfaces and cupboards should always be your first port of call when you are doing a deep clean: 

  • Clean the insides of the cupboards. Take out everything from inside and use a disinfectant spray to wipe them down. 
  • Scrub down any outer surfaces, including any shelves and the extractor fan. 
  • Use a friendly cleaner on the cupboard doors, or even a bowl of warm water and soap. Bear in mind any solid wood may require a specialist cleaner. 
  • Shine any handles, especially id they are looking greasy. If you need to, remove them and soak them. 
  • Once you put your belongings in, do one final sweep. 
  • Spray down the worksurfaces and tiles with a warm cloth and disinfectant spray. 

Kitchen Appliances

The largest cleaning jobs in the kitchen are usually the refrigerator and the cooker, however, if you deep clean these together you can save a lot of energy and time. Start by cleaning your oven, the oven cleaning kits are brilliant for this, but make sur you keep the kitchen well ventilated. Then move onto the fridge; remove any food and chuck out anything that should have gone a while ago and wipe the inside down thoroughly but quickly. Anything that you plan to put back inside the fridge shouldn’t be left out for more than 20 minutes. 

When you want to deep clean smaller appliance such as the microwave, you should wash any detachable items in the sink and then scrub the insides when they are switched off. You may want to consider using a descaling product on the kettle. 

The Final Touches 

Thoroughly scrub your sink as the last job, after all, you are using it to clean almost everything else so it’s bound to get a little grubby. Leave some warm water with either limescale remover or bleach for a few minutes before you drain and wipe the surroundings. Remember to always use non-scratch scourers if you have any tough stains. 

Then clean your floor. Vacuum or sweep the floors and use a diluted solution to mop your floor thoroughly, leaving it to dry. This means your deep cleaning session is complete! 

Most kitchens need to be deep cleaned every 1 to 2 months, as long as you keep it clean day-to-day. Following the tips above every few months, your deep clean shouldn’t take more than a few hours each time.

Don’t Let Life Grimed You Down

Preparing For Spring

If only cleaning fairies were real

One of the secrets of helping to keep your home clean is to stop the dirt, dust and grime from entering it in the first place.  Of course, how you deal with the dirt and dust matters as well. If you dust your living room, for example, with a dry cloth, all you will do is put the dust into the air and it will settle somewhere else. You need some dampness for the dust to cling to, which could be created by a spray furniture polish or by wiping the dust-up with baby wipes.

Let’s take a look at ways to help to keep the amount of grime and dust lower, and easier to cope with once it appears so that you can have a more fulfilling life…

Doormats

Doormats are a very simple solution to keeping some of the grime out of your home. People tend to automatically wipe their shoes before they enter, if a doormat is provided, and especially when the weather is wet, that can be a real plus to keeping your housework down. The secret for doormats to do their job effectively is to clean them on a regular basis. Do not forget to clean underneath them as well, as dirt and dust will fall through them and form a layer underneath.

Easy Clean Flooring

Don’t Let Life Grimed You Down

Nothing is more annoying than when you have just finished cleaning a floor and the dog or the kids run across with mud on their feet. If you have carpet on the floor that can be disastrous as it is not unusual for mud and dirt to create a stain mark.

However, if you have laminate flooring, which you can find at Factory Direct Flooring, it is very simple to deal with and will be clean and sparkling in no time at all. It’s also very affordable, which is another reason to consider it.

Pets

Dogs and cats will leave pet hairs around your home and dust seems to cling to them. In no time at all, it builds up along skirting boards and starts to make your home look very unclean. It is usually a simple job to sweep or vacuum it up, but you can reduce the amount of fur they leave everywhere. Regular brushing will help to get rid of any excess hairs and then hopefully there will be fewer of them on your floors and furniture.

Check Your Vents

If your vents get dusty every time air blows through them it will bring dust with it. It is not just the vents from outside you should clean, the ones from air conditioning or heating units like the ones at Debenhams, will behave in just the same way. Then air can flow freely around your home without creating another layer of dust.

Empty Your Vacuum Outside

Don’t Let Life Grimed You Down

Once you have vacuumed your home do not make the mistake of emptying the machine inside the house. Even sealed bags will let some dust out, and f you use a bag fee cleaner, this can be even worse.

It is little tricks like these that will help toward keeping your homes a bit less dusty and dirtier, and you might be surprised by how much they actually work.
