Have a process and a checklist
When you think about all the things that need cleaning in your home, it can be a bit overwhelming. The best way to tackle a deep clean or big spring clean is to have a clear process in mind. Before you even start cleaning, having a pre clean where you focus on decluttering and tidying up will make the cleaning process itself so much easier. Work out the order of how to move through your home and where you’ll clean first. If you live over two floors, starting upstairs and working your way down could be one method. Whichever room you tackle first, it can help to take a top to bottom approach, so start high up and think about dusting ceilings and light fittings and on top of cupboards, then work down to eye level and tackle furniture and worktops, before finishing off with the floors. This method also makes sure any dust you create high up gets cleaned up at the end. Having a checklist can also help you stay on track.

Raid the cupboards
As well as stocking up on cleaning products, ingredients you’ve probably already got in your cupboards can be a good addition to your deep cleaning regime. For example, vinegar and baking soda can be used to get oil-based stains out of carpet. Lemon and salt can be used to clean stainless steel sinks and cream of tartare can help make small appliances like toasters look shiny and new again.
Have the right equipment
Once you’ve got your checklist and process nailed, check you’ve got all the things you need to carry out the big clean. Think cleaning products as well as the basics like sponges, cloths, bin liners and paper towels. Once you get stuck into cleaning the last thing you’ll want to do is have to dash to the Supermarket for more supplies! The cleaning equipment you use can make a big difference to how efficient the cleaning process is.
