How long to deep clean a house? Does it take two hours or twenty two hours?

Many of us have had a go at some sort of deep cleaning process at our home, and timings i'm sure have varied considerably. The reality is that most of us won't have the time or energy to deep clean our house all in one go. If this really is required, you may be better considering engaging the services of a house cleaning company.

The short answer for how long to deep clean a house is to allow roughly 8 hours for a three bedroom house with a family bathroom, and move up and down by one hour for each additional bedroom and bathroom. This is a very rough guide, and the actual time taken could vary considerably depending on the current condition of the property, amount of clutter, if pets are present and many other factors.

Deep clean your house in six days - without killing yourself in the process!

The key to a good deep clean is to ensure you have the energy and focus to focus on each part of the clean. If you try and do too much initially, you will lose focus, tired yourself and miss parts. If you follow this 6 day guide, your house will inside a week have been deep cleaned top to bottom.

Day one - deep clean your kitchen

Your kitchen needs cleaning every day after usage, and can be one of the tougher areas to deep clean. For the deep cleaning, you need to focus on the large appliances both installed and free-standing, as well as all kitchen surfaces.

Start by high dusting to de-cobweb, then work round the rooms in one direction, dusting all units high to low. This process will ensure dust and debris falls to the floor, to be vacuumed up which will be the last part of the process.

Here are some items that will need special attention:

Fridge - Remove all shelves, and wash with warm water with fairy liquid. Use this same mixture for the inside of the fridge. Don't forget the smaller shelf where milk normally stands! Be sure to sanitise your handle as well as cleaning the outside of the fridge.

Microwave - Take out any removable microwave trays and wash in warm, soapy water with fairy liquid. Wipe out and scrub if necessary with an all-purpose cleaner to remove deeper stains and marks.

Smaller appliances - Wipe clean the outside and base of all other smaller appliances, and don't forget to empty the crumb drawer in the toaster!

Give all work surfaces, inside of cupboards and floors a good clean also.

Vacuum the floors to remove debris, and finish by mopping thoroughly, corner to corner.

One of the most heavily used rooms in your home - they can get pretty grim if not cleaned well on a regular basis. Here are the key areas to focus on.

Toilets - Spray a suitable toilet cleaner down, scrub with the brush to agitate and leave for 5 minutes or so. Then return and flush.

Showers - Be sure to tackle glass shower screens with a suitable product, as well as glass to leak streak free. Material shower curtains can normally be put through the washing machine and hing back up to dry - check the care instructions to make sure this can be done.

Sinks - Give sinks a good clean, and use a suitable limescale remover to remove any buildup on taps and plugholes.

Don't forget to mop the floors!
