Sharing is good. In this post, we share with you our complete house cleaning checklist to clean your home efficiently and thoroughly. First things first. We realise that not everybody is into cleaning and we want to try to make the whole process more enjoyable for you. To improve your mood, put on some lively, energetic music. Trust me, it works! Now roll up your sleeves and pick up clutter. As you move through the rooms, try to rethink what you have. The fewer belongings you have, the less you have to clean.

How to Clean and Declutter Your House?

Get rid of all those old magazines, newspapers, mail, clothes you do not wear anymore, toys your kids do not play with anymore, etc. It is high time for you to consider the idea of donating or recycling. You cannot go wrong! If there are any closets or wardrobes you are too afraid to open, now it is the time!

There is one golden rule – Always clean from top to bottom! You do not want to dust the same surfaces twice, do you? Dust with a microfiber cloth because this will reduce the number of allergens and can improve the indoor breathing environment.

To remove cobwebs, a mop with a tied dampened cloth will do the trick! When you do a deep cleaning of your home, you should not forget to clean the door handles, picture frames, light switches and fixtures, etc. To clean TV screens and monitors use a glass cleaned to prevent them from getting scratched. You will find out also what is included in end of tenancy cleaning.

Vacuum the floors in the entire property, including upholstered furniture. You will be surprised at what you can find under beds or furniture- socks, books, hair ties, etc. A good advice when you are about to mop, make sure to start at the farthest corner and work your way to the entrance.
