Top tips for deep cleaning your Audley home

Now is the perfect time to freshen up your Audley home with a deep clean, here are a few of our top tips to help you manage the task:

Begin by going around each room of your home and compile a list of cleaning tasks, particularly noting what areas get missed during a routine clean.

Check the stock in your cleaning cupboard and make a shopping list if necessary. Did you know that you don’t have to use strong chemicals? There are some easy natural homemade cleaning solutions using distilled white vinegar, baking soda, water and lemon.

Work from top to bottom (ceiling to floor, first floor to ground and so on).

You might be tempted to de-clutter at the same time, which might lead you on a path down memory lane! We recommend de-cluttering before a deep clean.

Check cosmetics, medicines and your food cupboards for out of date items.

Now would also be a good time to descale the kettle and coffee machine. If not done regularly, limescale can build up, particularly if you live in a hard water area.

Flip rugs over and hoover the underside to dislodge ground in dirt.

During a deep clean is an ideal time to turn your mattress over, you could also sprinkle baking soda over the area and leave for an hour or more and then hoover up before remaking up the bed. This will help lift any odours. 

Introduce some new soft furnishings such as cushions to freshen up your home with the latest mood lifting colour trends.  

Make sure you pace yourself, you don’t have to undergo an epic deep clean in one day, you could assign tasks over a week or a fortnight to make the work more manageable.
