How To Deep Clean Your Bedroom

There is a common misconception that people spend the majority of their time in common living areas of their home such as the living room or kitchen but did you know that the average person spends one-third of their life in bed sleeping? Time spent in bed alone easily makes your bedroom the most utilized room in your home. Ensuring that you have a clean bedroom is critical to maintaining good sleep health. So if it’s been a while since you’ve given your bedroom a good deep cleaning keep reading for tips and tricks that will show you how to deep clean your bedroom like a pro.

Declutter

It’s best to begin your deep clean by decluttering your bedroom. The task of decluttering is the most time consuming by far so it’s best to get it out of the way first. Begin by picking up any trash laying around. Scan your room for the most cluttered areas and get to work.  Clear off and organize items on flat surfaces such as your dresser, nightstands, and shelves. After you’ve decluttered flat surfaces it’s time to tackle the inside of your closet and dressers. Set aside a dedicated time free from distractions so you can focus as decluttering and organizing closets and dressers can feel overwhelming. A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself if you’ve used an item in the last 12 months, if you haven’t it may be a good idea to donate or discard it.

 

Refresh Your Bed

With how much time you spend in bed it’s important to regularly deep clean it. Begin by removing and washing all of your bed linens including  your pillows. Mattresses can be home to dust mites and accumulated sweat. A great way to clean it is to vacuum top to bottom on both sides with the upholstery attachment on your vacuum. Sprinkle a little bit of baking soda and vacuum the excess.  Once your mattress is clean remove it from your bed frame so that you can dust and vacuum underneath the bed. This is also a great time to flip your mattress when putting it back on. Once your linens are clean and dry make your bed as you usually would.

Wash Walls and Baseboards

Even if you regularly dust your bedroom sometimes it’s good to go a step further and wash your walls. Begin by removing any wall décor or mirrors you may have hanging up. Dust and wipe down each item. Once you’ve removed your wall décor dust and wash your walls, ceilings, and baseboards. After your wall is dry hang up your wall décor.

 

Clean the Floor

Depending on what type of flooring your bedroom has will dictate how you clean. If you have hardwood floors, vacuum and mop. Remove and clean any rugs you may have. If your bedroom is carpeted sprinkle some baking soda to absorb odors and thoroughly vacuum. If you’re able to, slightly move your furniture to clean behind and under them as well.
