It’s no secret that living in a clean environment is essential; allergens and germs that thrive in unclean environments can negatively impact your health in various ways, from respiratory troubles to sleeping problems and everything in between.

Nevertheless, when it comes to keeping your home clean, it’s essential to prioritize more than routine surface cleaning; specific areas of your home need regular deep cleaning. Be sure to prioritize these home areas when spring cleaning or deep cleaning your home at any other time of the year.

Carpets And Rugs

Carpets and area rugs can truly liven up a space and add substantial warmth and comfort to a room. But even so, this type of flooring needs the most when it comes to cleaning.  Weekly vacuuming is fundamental if your home has carpets and rugs. Beyond this, it’s also crucial to deep clean carpets and rugs every few months.

To deep clean your carpets, you’ll need a wet and dry vacuum and a suitable detergent. Otherwise, you can also opt for fast-drying carpet cleaning services for professional results every time.


We often overlook the condition of the windows in our homes because they build up dirt and dust over more extended periods. Even so, it’s essential to clean your home’s windows every six months.  To clean the windows correctly without causing streaks and marks, you’ll need a window cleaning solution and a window cleaner tool. Using the right products is essential.

Curtains And Blinds

Just as windows gather dirt and dust over time, the same applies to curtains and blinds; these need to be washed thoroughly every few months. It’s best to clean curtains and blinds on the same day you wash windows.

Sofas And Beds

It’s important to wash bed linen every couple of weeks in hot water. Beyond this, you also need to deep clean mattresses. Upholstery cleaning requires a specific vacuum machine for suitable results, so it’s also typically best to have a service deep clean beds, sofas, and other upholstery furnishings in your home every six months.

This effort will ensure your home is always free of pesky home intruders like bed bugs and fleas.

Garbage Bins

Garbage bins are often left to fester for months because we pull the bags out and forget about anything that may have spilled over inside the bin.  Dirty garbage bins can welcome pests into your home, so it’s imperative to deep clean and disinfect bins at least once a month.

The Oven

The oven is another often overlooked area of our homes that can quickly become pretty dirty. Ideally, an oven should be cleaned once a month. Avoiding this chore will worsen the condition of your oven as food spills will simply burn-in and become harder to remove, even with the right cleaning products.

In addition to the above, it’s also essential to dust ceiling fans and above doors.  While deep cleaning your home is highly recommended, it’s wise to rely on a professional service if you don’t have the right equipment. There are plenty of reliable and professional services out there, and most home cleaning services are pretty affordable.
