Tips For Deep Cleaning Your Living Room
Your living room should be a clean and tidy space in which you and your family can relax, and deep cleaning your living room every once in a while will ensure that your room is as clean and sanitary as possible! If you’re looking for some advice for deep cleaning your living room then have a look at the following helpful tips to get you off to a great start! 1) Make a list of the areas you want to clean.Start your deep clean by making a list of the areas that you want to visit while you’re deep cleaning. There are many places in your living room which can get forgotten about, such as picture rails, the tops of shelves and bookcases, behind your radiators and more. Take the time to have a look around your living room to identify areas like these. Add them to your list so that you know exactly what you need to do for your living room deep clean! 2) Cleaning your upholstery.Whether it’s your sofa, your armchair or even your curtains, the upholstery and soft furnishings in your living room need to be thoroughly cleaned every once in a while. Check to see if your curtains can be machine washed or dry cleaned and ensure that they get a wash while you’re cleaning your living room. If you have a fabric sofa or armchair then invest in a good stain removal spray that’s suitable for the fabric and make a go of removing any stains that are sullying your furniture. Remove any cushions, sofa cushions and arm rests to vacuum away crumbs, dust and dirt, and then use a deodorising spray to leave your upholstery smelling fresh and clean. If you have leather sofas then take the time to find the right stain remover or cleanser for the job, and always remember to test new products on an inconspicuous area of the furniture so that you know that it’s not going to tarnish it. 3) Cleaning your carpets.Vacuuming regularly is an absolute must for your home, but it’s important that you clean deep down into the fibres of your carpets and rugs too. Dust, dirt, bacteria and grime can all get trapped in your carpets, leading them to lose their colour, look duller, older and can even cause unwanted odours. If you don’t have a carpet cleaner then it’s worth hiring one from your local cleaning company. You’ll be amazed at the results and your home will look fantastically clean! 4) Cleaning your bookshelf.Dust can and will build up on your bookshelves, and even if you dust regularly it’s a good idea to occasionally clear your shelves completely and clean them from top to bottom. Find a cleaning product that’s suitable for the material that your bookshelves are made of, remove all the items from the shelves, and wipe them down to get rid of dust and grime. 5) Cleaning your television.Televisions can easily attract dust and dirt thanks to the static, so try spraying yours with an anti-static spray to keep yours looking cleaner for longer. Use a soft clean cleaning cloth, or a microfiber cloth to gently buff marks off of your television screen, and don’t forget to dust behind it and underneath it as well. Your television will look as good as new!
