Consider cleaning your home at the microbial level. Get closer until pollen spores and dust specks are your stars and your home is a huge semi-closed ecosystem of hidden corners and spaces. There are millions of dirty particles, dust, pollen, etc., floating in your home at any given time. It is normal. We sweep and vacuum them all the time, but this level of thinking is the difference between daily carpet cleaning and deep carpet cleaning.
Cleaning consists of removing stubborn particles from the house based on exposure and level of risk. You want your countertops to be a clean line from particle-free stone to mostly particle-free filtered clean air. Every cleaning task takes care of this.
Now consider how a quick swipe with a soapy sponge affects your microbial countertops. You are sweeping the vast majority of the surface with a very full surface, dissolving, cleaning and lightly rubbing. You can sweep in the corners and get almost all the particles, depending on pressure and grout. With a full sponge technique, you can keep your kitchen virtually clean and germ-free, at least in the most relevant areas.
Grab a broom and quickly sweep a room. It has cleaned up most of the dust, dirt and definitely most of the larger debris, at whatever depth and furniture you’ve swept. But the broom always leaves a small percentage, depending on the broom, and there is always some dust left in the corners.
Mopping soaps up the same soapy water over a large area. Corners are easier to get, but your mop gets dirty over time. Consider the particles dissolved, collected, and left in the mop bucket.
Vacuuming is ideal for a high percentage of particle collection, especially on hard floors. But there is always more dust to remove with a steam cleaner during deep cleaning.
Deep cleaning is about understanding microbes and finding them where they hide. Consider corners that are hard to reach, or the tops of cabinets that you never see. This is where the dust goes. When the air and surfaces are disturbed, more dust (and old dirt and pollen) returns to the main areas of your home.
Deep carpet cleaning Perth means searching in corners, the underside of furniture, dusty upholstery, curtains, and high-pile rugs. Not just the tile, but the grout. Not only polishing fixtures, but also sanitizing drains. Clean accumulated dust inside appliance cabinets and mold that hides under rugs.
Take your surface work to a new level. During deep cleaning, increase the strength of your cleaning mixes and use hotter water. Work deep into each corner and feel free to soak a tough part or scrub with cleaning powder.
Look for new surfaces, including vertical ones. Scrub your cabinet doors, for example, and every side of every counter item. Look for surfaces you’ve never scrubbed and dig into every corner.
Deep cleaning your floors means moving furniture and shampooing your rugs. If you don’t normally clean under furniture, there is a civilization of particles ranging from dust bunnies to hair spiders to real spiders. The corners and underside of furniture hide dust that then bursts out, dirtying a clean floor again without introducing new dirt.
Start with the vacuum cleaner, applied to each type of floor in the house. Use your accessories and make use of the hose extension. If you can, turn up the suction where it is safe and strategically raise or lower the beaters.
Mop more like cleaning counters, paying attention to every inch and corner. In some areas, you may want to clean directly with a sponge and soap in place. Sealed hardwood floors are safe to mop, but don’t leave them soaked for long. Change the water frequently and use a stronger cleaning solution. We also recommend cleaning baseboards, as they contain a large amount of dust and cobwebs around each edge of the floor.
Carpet may need to be treated for moisture or mold damage. Clean with powdered cleaner, then steam. Carpets and rugs that are more than 10 years old should be professionally cleaned or replaced. Replace carpet pads if possible, especially if there have been spills, dirt, or pets.
Remember that appliances are a treasure trove of particulate-level dirt. Your entire HVAC system is covered in dust, inside and out. Your water heater collects sediment on the bottom. All filters and filtration systems must be cleaned over time. Your pipes accumulate with dirt of various kinds that causes clogs. Even your dishwasher needs to be descaled of water mineral buildup from time to time.
When you deep clean properly, you won’t need to deep clean again for a while as those particle deposits recharge. Daily carpet cleaning can extend that time between deep cleaning by keeping particle build-up at bay. For more information on daily or deep cleaning of your property, contact us today!
