Do you find it difficult to keep the house clean when the kids are out of school? Parents often feel like the house is neglected during the summer months. It can be hard to stay ahead of the mess when the kids are around all day.

Now that everyone is back in school, it is a great time to get caught up on the deep cleaning tasks that need to be addressed. Here are a few focus areas that you might consider in your home:

Clean the Fridge, Pantry, and Cupboards

If the kids were rummaging through the pantry all summer, then it is likely that there are crumbs and garbage that need to be cleaned up. Take some time to pull everything out of the pantry and cupboards. Throw away old packages and empty boxes, then wipe down the shelves before organizing everything again.

Also, consider the benefits of cleaning behind your kitchen appliances. Move the fridge and stove to reach the dark corners of the kitchen.

Bathrooms and Laundry Room

Deep cleaning in the bathrooms is essential after a fun summer of outdoor sports and games. Scrub down every area of the bathroom, including behind the toilet, in the drawers, and through the cupboards. Don’t overlook the baseboards and fan intake.

It is also a great time to clean out the laundry room. Pull the washer and dryer away from the wall to clean behind the appliances. Also, run a load of hot water and vinegar in the washing machine to clear away any gunk that has built up.

Carpet Cleaning

Even if you are consistent with sweeping and vacuuming, the carpets can be a gathering place for dirt and crumbs. Bring in an experienced carpet cleaning crew to freshen the floors and get rid of the dirt that collected over the summer.

Schedule Regular Deep Cleaning Sessions

Getting caught up with the deep cleaning is just the first step. Next is putting together a schedule to stay ahead of everything throughout the school year.
