How to Deep Clean your Home


We all have tasks around the house we’d rather not do until we absolutely have to, like washing the curtains, cleaning the microwave, and disinfecting surfaces.

But with the recent pandemic, deep cleaning your home is a necessity.

Read on to learn more about COVID-19 deep cleaning, straight from our London team of professional deep cleaners.

The difference between deep cleaning and regular cleaning -

Regular cleaning is the cleaning you do daily and weekly. These are tasks like sweeping, mopping, changing sheets and tidying up. The focus is on making your home presentable and neat on a day-to-day basis.

Deep cleaning, on the other hand, focuses on thoroughly disinfecting every surface of your home, including areas you rarely clean, like behind appliances.

COVID-19 deep cleaning is especially important because the virus can live on surfaces for up to 72 hours.

COVID-19 deep cleaning checklist -

Clean the surfaces mentioned below with warm soap and water. After drying, disinfect the area with an appropriate cleaner which contains at least 70% alcohol to ensure you kill any harmful bacteria, spores or viruses.

  1. Doors: Wipe down all your door frames and handles with a disinfectant spray such as Dettol. This includes wardrobe doors and your doorbell.
  2. Lighting: Dust your lampshade and wipe down all the light switches and switch plates.
  3. Fixtures and fittings: This includes everything you touch frequently – your phone, thermostat, radiator and plug points.
  4. Floors and skirting: When you mop, add bleach to your cleaning solution to make sure you kill any harmful viruses.
  5. Cornices: Vacuum the cornices and be on the lookout for mould, which can be a health hazard too.
  6. Appliances and electronics: Wipe down the exterior and interior of all your appliances: the microwave, oven, hobs and grills, kettle, toaster, washing machine, tumble dryer, television, remote control and anything else you touch at least once a week.

If wiping your home down with harsh chemicals doesn’t appeal to you, our team of professional cleaners can deep clean your home without using harsh chemicals or toxins.

We use the same deep cleaning technology used to disinfect hospitals and planes: ionised hydrogen peroxide fog. This disinfecting fog cleans 99% of viruses, spores and harmful bacteria and is non-toxic and non-corrosive. It’s so safe, you can enter the room 3 hours after it’s been treated. What’s more, the fog disinfects electronics and furniture without causing damage.

Other benefits of our deep cleaning technology include:

  1. It’s more effective than manual cleaning.
  2. Reduces the spread of viruses and prevents reinfection.
  3. Eco-friendly because by-products are limited to oxygen and hydrogen.
  4. Bacteria and viruses are not resistant to our cleaning solutions.
