Deep Cleaning One-Time

If you want start the clean process for your home, the kitchen will probably be the best place to start. If you're not an avid kitchen user, then perhaps it will not require a massive deal of attention. But for those that live in their kitchens; it's where you cook and bake, soil dishes and silverware, store food, and store waste. If you really want to deep-clean your kitchen, a lot of focus needs to first be on high heat related appliances:
This is probably the area with the most grease and food residue, therefore it must be cleaned inside and out. When you're cleaning, you should probably pay close attention to the corners; you will definitely find things you wouldn't like. Obtain a good quality oven cleaning solution as well.
This is also another greasy, crumby, food particle hoarder. It may contain odor causing stains and unsightly scuffs from years of use. Make sure you pay attention to the corners!
This is a huge area of concern because of the contents of stored waste. Remove the current trash bag and tie it off. Take the trash container outside near a hose and fill with soap and scrub with a sponge, rinse well. Apply sanitation spray afterwards and wipe down. Also make sure you double check the surface of the floor area or cabinet where the receptacle is located and clean it well.
Other areas of concern in your kitchen are; your refrigerator and freezer, sink, cabinets, and drawers, toaster, dishwasher, etc.
The bathroom is also essential not just for aesthetic reasons but for personal hygiene; you don't want any kind of bacteria growing where younger children or older adults are present; they are more susceptible for illness. Just like the kitchen, the bathroom also has places you need to pay close attention to. Places like the sink, tiles, shower curtain, bathtub, faucets, and even your toothbrush holder. Pay attention to corners and edges for better results (this is key). As for your shower curtain, the best thing to do is to get it washed or replace it if it's covered in mildew. These parts of your bathroom need to be cleaned often and appropriately in order to preserve good health and sanitation.
In the bedroom, you'll probably find that most dirt or debris is either located in your very own wardrobe, shoe rack, or under your bed. These three places have very high possibilities of harboring stubborn dirt, pethair, and outdoor debris (remove outdoor shoes before entering your house if you can). When you're cleaning, try to clear out your clothes and shoes. But also pay close attention to the bottoms of them. If you have shelves or nightstands, dust and wipe everything you put your clothes on, and don't forget your closet as well. As for your bed, try to raise and sweep beneath it.
In your living room, you probably need to pay attention to your couch, especially if you eat or drink around it. If it's leather, you should clean it with a damp cloth and dust it if it isn't. You should also pay attention to your typical gadgets; your TV and cable boxes and other device connections. Wipe them down and apply sanitation solutions as necessary.
