Have you ever wondered when you should deep clean your rental property? We’re talking about an all-out blitz with serious products and tools. You know, when you’re cleaning places you forgot existed? Should you do this once a month or every 3–12 months? Here’s when you should deep clean your home, plus a few tips!
It can be tempting to start unpacking when you move into a new house or apartment. But don’t skip this step! Take the time to thoroughly clean your new place so you don’t have to worry about it later.
Start with smaller jobs such as tidying up drawers and cupboards, washing walls, and cleaning windows. Then move on to larger tasks like vacuuming carpets, cleaning ovens, scrubbing bathrooms, etc.
When you return home after a long vacation, you might be surprised at how dirty your house seems. Dust and dirt can build up quickly when you’re gone for a few days.
You can also ask someone close to you to come over and take care of your property. That way, when you return home, all you have to do is unpack and relax!
A season change can be a good reminder to give your property a deep cleaning. Fall leaves and winter snow can indicate a good time to do a little outdoor cleaning. You’ll want to focus on keeping gutters and drains clear of debris. You should also wash your windows and clean the home exterior.
If you’re about to put your property on the market, you must ensure it is in its best condition. You don’t want potential buyers to see lots of dirt and grime. It can reduce the price they are willing to pay or result in them not making an offer.
This cleaning includes wiping down cabinets and door frames, removing old wallpaper, scrubbing floors, and vacuuming carpets. You can also hire professional cleaners to help out if you don’t have time or energy for this task yourself.
While this is by no means an exhaustive list, these are some of the most important times for deep cleaning your home. Good luck, and happy cleaning!
