Standard Bedroom Cleanup
Since, as a resident, you spend a great deal of your time in your bedroom sleeping, the continual maintenance of cleaning your home is essential to both your health and comfort. Germs and allergens are some of the many culprits that affect homeowners and tenants in the Grass Valley and Nevada City areas.
Out of Sight Cleaning has it as their priority to create and maintain a clean and healthy environment for your bedroom, as well as your whole household.
Custom Bedroom Needs
Considering that not all bedrooms are created equal, we customize are services to meet the requirements of our clients and customers.
For example, there may be a bed post or lamp that needs cleaning with special chemicals, or you may like to have us clean with only cleaning materials.
Also, master bedrooms typically have more issues than smaller bedrooms. The greater the area of your bedroom, the bigger the mess is going to be.
If you happen to live in an apartment, you may have to have special clearance from your landlord to have our housekeepers clean.
- Empty waste buckets
- Floors vacuumed or swept/mopped
- Dust window sills, lamps, and more.
- Deep cleaning, if necessary.
Bedroom Cleaning Tips
Do you like cleaning? Most people don't. Some people don't mind it. The reward of a clean home when the job is done is what motivates me. Although, it would be nice if the cleaning didn't need to be do be so often.
Every room in your home needs to be cleaned about once a week. About once a year or every six months you need to do a deep clean on those rooms too. I'm sure you clean the bathrooms and kitchen the most. Those rooms get dirty quickly.
What about your bedroom? Have you neglected cleaning properly there? You may make the bed and run the vacuum, but you need to do more than that to truly get it clean. There is probably laundry on the floor and dust gathering on the dresser. You may shove things under the bed or in the closet to get it out of sight. You tell yourself that you will deal with it later. It may take months before you finally get to it.
There are some simple solutions to keeping your bedroom clean. If you maintain the cleanliness of it, it won't get so out of hand.
Here are some tips to keeping your bedroom clean:
- Make the bed each day. The entire room looks nicer if you do this one simple task.
- Vacuum once or twice a week in the high traffic places. It only takes a few minutes!
- Don't leave clothes lying on the floor. Put them away immediately or put them with the dirty laundry if they need to be washed. No designated place for dirty laundry? Create one. Put a hamper or a tall laundry basket in your closet or master bathroom.
- Wipe down all the surfaces in your bedroom once a week and open the windows as needed to air out the room.
- Remember to start from top to bottom when cleaning any room. You don't want to clean the ceiling corners last and cause dust to settle on the surfaces you already cleaned.
- Use disinfecting wipes to clean the light switch, door knobs, electronic devices, baseboards and any knick knacks sitting on the dresser or night stand. Use glass cleaner to clean the mirrors, TV and computer screens.
- Empty out the trash can as needed.
Doing these small things will help, but there will still be more demanding tasks that need to be done eventually.
- Wash those sheets. Please do this at least once a month. Twice a month would be better. Just think how nice and comforting it would be to sleep on fresh sheets! I would think that thought would motivate you.
- When the sheets are off, clean the mattress. It may not look dirty but trust me, it is. Vacuum it well first. To get rid of any smelly odor, sprinkle baking soda all over the mattress. Let it sit for several hours before vacuuming it up. If you need to spot clean any mystery stains, use a mixture of baking soda, peroxide and dish soap. Spray onto the stains and rub it out with a rag.
- Get rid of clutter. Less is more. It really is. Go through your closet and clean our under your bed every 6 months. If you have clothes that you haven't worn in 3 months, get rid of them. You don't need them. If you get rid of what is not being used or worn, you are able to find what you do wear! Everything should have a place. It makes things so much easier.
- Get organized. Purchase plastic storage totes for the out of season clothes and anything else you don't need very often. Label them too.
- Wash the windows. This task is easily forgotten because the windows are usually covered with curtains and blinds. Take down the window treatments so you can easily wash the windows. Dust the blinds and wash the curtains before you put everything back up.
- If possible, move the bed and dresser to vacuum underneath of them. Vacuum the corners and edges of the room too. If you move the furniture, you may get really productive and decide to rearrange some things! You may create a refreshing change by switching the bedroom around.
In conclusion, remember that cleaning your bedroom doesn't have to be a dreadful experience. Try to make it fun. Put on some music while you clean. Reward yourself with a treat when you are done. Having a clean and comforting bedroom to relax in at the end of the day will be worth it in the end.
