When was the last time you deep cleaned your bedroom? Maybe now it's the time! This important room is where you sleep and rest, so deep cleaning the bedroom every few months is necessary.
In our blog post, we tell you how to deep-clean your bedroom! And don’t forget to check out this complete room-by-room guide to keep learning more cleaning tips.
Remove the bedding and washable curtains
When cleaning the bedroom, the first thing to do is to remove all washable furnishings such as the bedding, curtains, and rugs. Take them into the laundry room and launder them according to the manufacturer's instructions. When washing the sheets and blankets, remember that hot or warm water can help you reduce the dust mites that could be living on them.
Do a quick decluttering
Clutter can turn deep cleaning into a much longer process. Before you start dusting and wiping, do a quick decluttering. First, remove the clothes and take them to their allocated place (the closet or the laundry basket.) Then, take every knickknack, decoration, and devices you have on top of the furniture. You can leave them in temporary storage like a box or basket.
Wipe the ceiling fan and light fixtures
With a duster or a microfiber cloth, dust the ceiling fans and light fixtures. Include the lightbulbs too! Light can turn dimmer if the lightbulb is too dirty. Dust any other high furniture or appliance, like a wall-mounted TV.
Clean the windows
Now it's time to clean the windows. Remove the dust on the window sill using a vacuum cleaner. Next, wipe down the window frame to get rid of grime. Finally, clean the windows with a glass cleaner. If you have large mirrors inside your bedroom, wipe them with a glass cleaner too.
Wipe wood furniture and the remaining fixtures
Most bedrooms have several large pieces of furniture, including the dresser, nightstands, or TV tables—and obviously the bed. To clean them, you should empty them and wipe all surfaces inside and outside. Choose the cleaner carefully to prevent damage to the materials.
Refresh the mattress
Use your vacuum's upholstery attachment to clean the bare mattress. Then, spot-clean any stain with a stain remover and a brush. You can sprinkle baking soda on the mattress for deeper cleaning. Leave the baking soda resting for an hour before vacuuming it. Then, flip the mattress and do the same process on the other side. To conclude, wipe or vacuum the bed frame, depending on the surface material.
Clean the floor
First, wipe down the baseboards using a damp cloth. Use the vacuum cleaner to remove dust and debris from the floor, ensuring you reach every area. You might need to move furniture to vacuum the hard-to-reach spots on the floor. If you have carpets, spot-clean them using a brush and a stain remover.
Make the bed
Once everything is clean and tidy, bring fresh bedding to make the bed. It's important that you leave this as the last chore to prevent dust and other particles from landing on the bedding.
Bring the stored knickknacks and devices back
As the last step, bring back the stuff you put in a box. To keep your bedroom tidy-up and decluttered, only return the things that really serve you! If you haven't touched something like a movie player or a book in the last month, it’s probably better off outside your bedroom.
