What Is Deep Cleaning?

The term deep clean is often thrown around, especially for move out cleaning, but what does deep cleaning actually entail? Essentially, it means getting your property in perfect condition for whoever will be moving out. The key to deep cleaning is to plan early, break down your cleaning tasks room by room, and set aside enough time to get the job done right. 

Cleaning The Kitchen

The kitchen is one of the most challenging parts of the home to clean, so we’ll start here first! Before you begin, make sure that you’ve packed all of your things and emptied the kitchen and refrigerator of food. If you’re bringing your kitchen appliances with you, be sure to move them prior to cleaning — there’s going to be a lot of gunk to clean out behind them. Here are our step-by-step tips for cleaning your kitchen:

  • Start with the fridge. Use hot, soapy water and a cloth to get into all those hard-to-reach places and be sure to scrub any spilled liquids/stains — like that hot sauce that tipped over a year ago.
  • Clean all countertops and cupboards — don’t forget to wipe all the way to the back of the shelves. 
  • Clean your faucets and sink. A great way to go the extra mile is to buff with a dry cloth afterward to leave a sparkling finish.
  • Clean out the oven and stove top. If your oven has a self-cleaning cycle, try to do it when you’re out of the house or open up the windows to ensure it doesn’t get too hot and smelly in your home. If you have to clean the oven yourself, be sure to use a cleaning product made specifically for ovens.

Cleaning The Bathroom

After the kitchen, the bathroom is the trickiest room to clean, and often what people put off to the end. Dive right in there and start scrubbing to get it over with. Here are some tips for deep cleaning your bathroom, and if you’d like to avoid it all together, contact Best Clean Ever for house cleaning services.

  • Clean the plugs in your sink and tub of debris
  • Use a limescale remover on your showhead, taps, and sink. Let it soak in and then wash away, finally buffing with a dry cloth to make it shine
  • Clean your toilet, including the base and the tiles around it 
  • Clean mirror with glass cleaner and then buff with a dry cloth
  • Clean out any drawers using a vacuum with a soft brush attachment
