Complete the Deep Cleaning Checklist after winter

Spring is the perfect time to get motivated and does some deep cleaning around the house. Deep cleaning after winter can help to remove the build-up of dirt, dust, and grime that may have accumulated during the colder months. Here is a checklist of areas that you may want to consider cleaning:


Clean both the inside and outside of your windows to remove any dirt, dust, and grime that may have accumulated during winter. Make sure to clean all windows and mirrors inside your home. Use a damp cloth with water and a mild detergent solution to wipe down the surfaces, followed by a clean dry cloth to remove streaks and smears. If you have window screens, remove them from their frames and gently scrub them with a soft brush and soapy water. Rinse them off with the garden hose before reinstalling the screens into their frames.

Vacuum furniture, carpets, and curtains

Start by giving furniture and carpets good vacuuming or take a professional carpet cleaning service for deep cleaning. Make sure to move light furniture out of the way so you can get those hard-to-reach areas. Vacuum over pockets and crevices in upholstered items, paying extra attention to armrests and headboards where dust particles might be trapped. Curtains can also accumulate dust particles, especially any above doors that open frequently during the winter months. Use fabric cleaner according to instructions if needed. It’s important not to skip vacuuming to ensure deep cleaning after winter is complete!

Dust fan blades, lamps, and fixtures throughout the house

Dust can accumulate quickly on fan blades, lamps, and other fixtures in any room of the home. Make sure to use a step stool or ladder to get up and reach all fixtures that are highly located. Start by wiping down the outside with a soft cloth, then move into crevices where dirt gets trapped over time such as corners and detailed surface areas. Finally, a vacuum cleaner attachment is useful for removing dust particles from inside fan blades.

Wipe down walls, floors, and baseboards

Begin by cleaning all walls, floors, and baseboards. Steam clean hardwood and tile surfaces. When wiping down walls, make sure to use a soft cloth and a lightly damped mild detergent solution to clean away dust, dirt, or cobwebs. Use a vacuum or dust brush attachment for baseboards and around window sills to get into all the tight areas.


The kitchen is one area where people often overlook cleaning tasks because they think it's difficult or too inconvenient to clean up after themselves. However, there are plenty of ways you can keep your kitchen clean without having to spend extra time scrubbing away at dried food crumbs or wiping down counters with disinfectant wipes after preparing meals for family members or guests. Deep clean all appliances, including the oven cleaning, refrigerator, and dishwasher. Also, clean all the cabinets, and floors.


Scrub all bathroom surfaces, including the sink, toilet, and shower or bathtub. Also, clean any mirrors or windows in the bathroom.


Remove everything from your closet and vacuum or clean the floors and shelves. If you haven't done a deep clean in a while, it's high time to take care of that closet issue. Get rid of all of the stuff you don't wear and get rid of any clothes that are too small or too large (or both). If you have kids, make sure they don't have any toys or other items in their closets.

Wash all sheets, bedding, and bed skirts in hot water to eliminate dust mites

Change and wash your bedding regularity during winter months to ensure it stays smelling fresh. Hot water is the best temperature to get rid of dust mites, so make sure this cycle is selected when you start the laundry. Also, don’t forget the bed skirt! Shake it out before washing to make sure all debris falls away, then the machine washes according to instructions.

Air ducts and vents

Consider having your air ducts and vents professionally cleaned to remove any dust or allergens that may have accumulated.


If you haven't cleaned up after yourself outside yet this winter season now is a good time to start putting things away for springtime living ahead! Sweep or pressure wash any outdoor surfaces, including patios, decks, and sidewalks. Also, clean any outdoor furniture and grill.

Remember to wear appropriate protective gear, such as gloves and a mask, when cleaning to protect yourself from any chemicals or allergens.

We hope these tips will help you do a deep cleaning of your home, removing all that dirt, dust, and grime for a fresh new start.
