Home Deep Cleaning vs Regular Cleaning: What's the Differences?

Home Deep Cleaning vs Regular Cleaning: What's the Differences?

Shopify API|
Most people who clean their homes do regular cleaning. Professional cleaning companies do regular and deep cleaning. While you'll have to pay extra for deep cleaning, there's unmatched value for money. To understand why you should overlook DIY (Do-It-Yourself) home cleaning over professional cleaning, it's important to define the two terms. What's the Difference Between Deep Cleaning and Regular Cleaning Your Home Regular Cleaning As the name suggests, regular home cleaning involves typical home cleaning tasks done to maintain typical cleanliness. While it's possible to hire a cleaning company to do regular cleaning, it costs less than deep cleaning. Regular cleaning usually involves cleaning tasks such as sweeping floors, cleaning and mopping floors, vacuuming carpets, wiping the dust from surfaces, appliances, and fixtures, cleaning and disinfecting the bathroom, cleaning kitchen appliances, cooking pots and floors as well as cleaning doors, window frames, dusting vents, emptying the trash can, and removing cobwebs. Deep Cleaning Deep cleaning goes further than regular cleaning. The main difference is in the level of detail. Deep cleaning is more extensive. It includes all regular cleaning tasks as well as cleaning neglected and/or hard-to-reach areas of your home. Anything that can be cleaned is attended to. It also focuses on improving the living quality and overall sanitation of your home. Other notable differences include price. Deep cleaning is obviously more costly. It also takes longer. How Often Do You Need to Deep Clean Your Home As mentioned above, deep cleaning involves cleaning every cleanable place or thing in your home. While it's not possible to clean everything, there are things you must deep clean often than others. You should deep clean your microwave, shower, toilet, bathmats, bathtubs, and carpets every week. Your refrigerator can be deep cleaned monthly, while your pillows and skirting boards should be cleaned every three months. Windows and drapes should be cleaned thoroughly after 3-6 months. Your mattress, blankets, and duvets can be deep cleaned at least twice a year. Showerheads can wait for a year, while your oven should be deep cleaned when it starts emitting an unpleasant odor. This can even be weekly depending on the frequency, spills, etc. Deep Cleaning House Checklist: How to Deep Clean a House If you are looking for specifics i.e., the different places to clean in your kitchen, bedroom, etc., how to clean those places, the number of times you should clean, among other important information, here's what you should know. Kitchen Deep Cleaning When deep cleaning your kitchen, you should focus on the microwave, refrigerator, and oven, as these are the appliances that aren't cleaned properly during regular cleaning. As mentioned above, deep clean your microwave weekly to get rid of food splatters that act as breeding grounds for germs. Your refrigerator should be deep cleaned monthly to eliminate food spills and other sources of germs like rotting vegetables, which can also cause serious bacterial contamination. The process of deep cleaning a refrigerator includes but isn't limited to removing everything and wiping down all compartments using an antibacterial wash. The oven should be deep cleaned as often as possible, more so when you start to smell previously cooked food. When cleaning your oven regularly, use a damp cloth and soapy water to get rid of good spills and splashes. Other areas and appliances that should be deep cleaned in the kitchen include dishwashers, stovetops, and sinks. Living Room Deep Cleaning Your living room should be deep cleaned weekly to half-yearly, depending on what is being cleaned. Carpets cleaning should be done weekly and deep cleaned once or twice a year. However, deep cleaning can be done often if you have pets or young children that play a lot but still need a carpet that is clean throughout. Deep cleaning is also dictated by factors such as stains and dust levels in your area. Deep cleaning carpets can be a daunting task when handled traditionally. Currently, there are deep cleaning vacuums in the market today, such as the Dreame T20 for deep cleaning your sofa, carpet, and floors. Windows and drapes can be deep cleaned once every 3-6 months. While you can wipe the woodwork, you'll need a professional to help you deep clean other elements/parts i.e., to remove grime from your drapes and windows. Skirting boards should be deep cleaned quarterly. Vacuuming and wiping over skirting will remove the layer of dust and pathogens (dust mites/allergens) that accumulate over time on skirting boards. Bathroom Deep Cleaning Bathtubs and showers should be deep cleaned weekly. Deep cleaning is crucial since bathtubs and showers are perfect breeding grounds for fungus and bacteria known to cause skin infections. Cleaning should be as thorough as possible by using antibacterial agents. Toilets should be cleaned regularly on a daily basis, and deep cleaned every week. Like bathtubs and showers, cleaning should be done using antibacterial agents. It's also crucial to use bleach to keep your toilet free of ugly stains. A toilet cleaner will come in handy when removing mineral deposits. Bathmats should also be cleaned weekly since they are also breeding grounds for fungus and bacteria. Use sanitizing wash or other similar detergents to get rid of harmful bugs that thrive in bathmats. After washing, dry the mat outdoors in direct sunlight to dry. Bathroom shower heads should be deep cleaned once every year to remove minerals that build up over time and restore normal function. Deep cleaning also gets rid of dust and dirt that accumulates over time. Bedroom Deep Cleaning Bedroom pillows should be deep cleaned quarterly, while mattresses, duvets, and blankets should be deep cleaned twice a year. Pillows harbor dead skin, sweat, oil, dust mites, and other allergens. Mattresses also harbor everything found in pillows and more i.e., bed bugs. Mattresses are also prone to become smelly. Duvets and blankets also accumulate dust and allergens. All the bedroom items should be deep cleaned by professional cleaners. You can do regular cleaning; however, deep cleaning should be left to professionals for obvious reasons. While it looks costly, it's important to consider the health implications of disregarding deep cleaning requirements. It's also important to choose reputable professional deep cleaners. It may be possible to deep clean some elements/places in your home with the help of state-of-the-art appliances. Make deep cleaning fast, easy, and efficient with the Dreame T20 right now!

5 Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality in Winter

5 Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality in Winter

Shopify API|
A recent global air quality survey shows that 50% of the world's population suffers from household air pollution effects. The importance of boosting indoor air quality can't, therefore, be overemphasized. To understand how to improve indoor air quality in Winter, you must first know what causes poor indoor air quality during Winter in the first place. Effects of poor indoor air quality are dire. The solutions range from taking simple measures like ventilating your home to finding the best vacuum for air quality. However, let's first discuss indoor air quality management in Winter and related issues. What Are the Issues Behind Poor Air Quality in Winter? Indoor air quality reduces in Winter since homeowners become more conscious of air leaks around windows, doors, rim joists, piping, etc., and result in insulation, among other efforts to boost comfort and lower heating bills. People tend to keep doors and windows locked tightly during Winter to maintain indoor warmth; however, these have negative effects. Poor circulation of air indoors allows a buildup of bacteria, viruses, dust mites, mold spores, and other pathogens responsible for many health problems ranging from headaches, fatigue, and dizziness to more severe effects like respiratory diseases, cancer, and heart disease, according to the EPA. Volatile organic compounds (from paint, cleaning agents, etc.), pets, smoke, etc., are also to blame for poor air quality indoors. 5 Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality Given the effects of poor indoor air quality in seasons like Winter, it's important to take certain measures. Here's how to improve indoor air quality in five simple ways. Grow Plants You can grow some indoor plants to boost your indoor air quality. Numerous studies, including one done by NASA, have linked indoor plants to improved air quality. Houseplants can absorb harmful pathogens in the air. They work perfectly in tight spaces and rooms with little to no airflow. While plants may be slower than air purifiers regarding their indoor air purifying capabilities, they have other notable benefits. For instance, plants are more therapeutic and cost-effective than air purifiers. However, you need a specific number of plants to realize indoor air quality benefits i.e., 2-3 plants for every 100-square feet of indoor space. Some plants are also better than others at purifying the air. Areca palm, snake plant, money plant, and Chinese evergreens are examples of good indoor plants to consider for better indoor air quality. Monitor Indoor Air Quality To improve air quality indoors, you must first know your indoor air quality status. Indoor air quality monitors (IAQ monitors) offer accurate data on air quality, allowing you to take effective improvement measures. The best IAQ monitors today can detect almost all pollutants indoors, including radon - the chemical linked to 13.4% of all lung cancer-related deaths in the U.S. IAQ monitors can detect volatile organic compounds (VOCs) responsible for many respiratory health problems like sinuses. The benefits of monitoring indoor air quality include identifying the specific pollutant in your home to be able to find effective ways of getting rid of that pollutant. You can be able to know exactly when to ventilate during Winter when the levels of a certain pollutant surpass a certain level. A good air quality monitor will monitor many other metrics, including indoor temperature, air pressure, and humidity, that are linked to how we feel and perform. Imbalances in temperature, air pressure, and humidity are common causes of headaches, migraines, joint pain, and blood pressure variations. There's even evidence linking indoor air quality to impaired thinking. Open Your Windows It's understandable why people don't like opening their windows during Winter. The effort associated with keeping your indoor environment warm and comfortable usually outweighs the need for fresh air. However, you must open your windows periodically to keep your indoor air quality level safe. If you have an indoor air quality monitor, you can know the exact time to ventilate. Clean and Vacuum More Often Keeping your floor and floor covering as carpets and mats can also boost your indoor air quality immensely. There is a clear link between carpets and poor indoor air quality. Carpets are linked to an increased allergen, dust, and pathogen levels in homes. The link between carpets and health problems like asthma, anxious symptoms, and mild cognitive effects is also clear. Carpets, mats, and dirty floors harbor dust, dust mites, mold, and many pathogens linked to indoor air quality problems. All these problems can be solved by vacuuming and moping your floor more often, especially during Winter when air circulation is poor. However, most vacuum cleaners won't get the job done. Some vacuum cleaners worsen indoor air quality by releasing dust, bacteria, and allergens back into the air. Mops also need to be clean, otherwise, they'll also reintroduce pathogens. To solve this problem, consider the best vacuum for air quality out there today with a HEPA filter, such as the Dreame D9 robot vacuum. The Dreame D9 is a vacuum cleaner, mop, and robot all in one offering unparalleled stress-free cleaning experiences. It uses a laser system and smart algorithm to map a cleaning route in your home and clean efficiently and thoroughly while avoiding obstacles with ease. Change Furnace Filters Regularly Since indoor heating needs increase drastically, furnace filters are bound to gather particulate matter faster. Furnace filters won't work as efficiently as they do during winter if you don't replace them regularly. Removing dirty and clogged filters more than once during Winter will ensure the trapped particulate matter doesn't recirculate back. After taking the measures above, you won’t have indoor air quality management problems. You should start by monitoring the quality of your air indoors before purposing to open windows and doors more often, adding indoor plants, opening your windows more often, and replacing your furnace filters. Most importantly, you should invest in a good vacuum cleaner and mop like the Dreame D9 proven to clean your carpet, rugs, and floors automatically.

How to Perform Antibacterial Cleaning with Dreame Robot Vacuums

How to Perform Antibacterial Cleaning with Dreame Robot Vacuums

While innumerable pathogens harbor the environment, you can effortlessly clear them with the help of an antibacterial floor cleaner. Disinfectants take your cleaning exercise to the next level since they eliminate all micro-organisms that cause diseases. Consequently, they help stop the spread of contagious ailments that would otherwise wreak havoc if they spread. You have to find detergents and cleaning solutions that kill both bacteria and viruses for you to have a successful disinfecting exercise. If you are looking for a full-proof method of disinfecting floors, herein is the best way to disinfect floors using the Dreame robot vacuums and easy to find house cleaning products. The Difference Between Cleaning and Disinfecting Most people assume that there is no difference between cleaning surfaces and disinfecting. There is a thin line between them that makes it difficult for most folks to differentiate. So, what exactly is the difference between the two procedures? Cleaning Cleaning is the act of removing dirt from a surface to keep the environment looking clean and neat. People clean surfaces frequently using soap and water, and it is a prerequisite to disinfecting the floor with antibacterial cleaning products. This process is relatively fast since you aim to remove soil, debris, and stains from the floor. You can scrub or mop the surface depending on the amount of dirt you are cleaning. Disinfecting Unlike cleaning, disinfectant requires you to use chemicals such as bleach to clean the surface. These chemicals remove germs, bacteria, and viruses that spread diseases. In this process, you have to allow the disinfectant to set on the surface for a specified period before wiping it off. This dwelling time allows the disinfectant to kill the pathogens. Tips for Disinfecting Floors Disinfectants differ from cleaning detergents in chemical composition, making them harsh. Therefore, you need to use pro tips when handling antibacterial cleaning products to avoid damaging your floor and skin. Here are some of the pro tips you can incorporate into your disinfecting routine to achieve stellar results. Always cover up using protective gear while preparing and using a disinfectant. Ensure that your floor is free of soil and general dirt before applying antibacterial cleaning products. Additionally, allow the floor to dry before proceeding to the next step. For the best results, use an antibacterial floor cleaner that the Environmental Protection Agency recommends for your floor type. Keep the disinfectant on the floor for the specified time so that it removes the pathogens you want to eliminate. Read the instructions provided on the packaging. These will help you learn how to handle the solution and how and where to store it after disinfecting the surfaces. Seal the containers well and store them away from children. And once you deplete your solution, discard the container appropriately. Use a spray applicator, antibacterial cleaning cloth, or auto-scrubbers to apply the solution on the floor. Now that you know what to do before and while cleaning, we can learn how to disinfect the floor using the Dreame robot vacuum. The Right Way to Use Antibacterial Floor Cleaner with Dreame Robot Vacuum When you want to disinfect the floor with Dreame robot vacuum, you have to incorporate a disinfectant that will help achieve top-notch hygiene standards. Antibacterial floor cleaners are a bit harsh, especially acidic ones, thanks to the chemical formula manufacturers use in their production. Thus, you have to find a friendly way to use them not to damage your cleaning robot. You are not recommended to add anything other than water into the vacuum tank. The Dreame robot vacuum manufacturer designed the tank to accommodate a neutral solution like water. The acidic antibacterial cleaners will erode the tank from inside, eventually creating holes that will leak water into the mortar. Once water gets to the machine, it is game over for you. The water will ruin your robot vacuum, creating the need to get a new one. And if you think using detergents and soap in the tank is equally fine, you are in for a rude shock. Considering that the pipes have a design that accommodates only water, adding other cleaning agents into the tank will cause the pipes to clog. Consequently, the clogged pores will reduce the machine's shelf life significantly. Instead of adding solutions into the tank, you can soak the antibacterial cleaning cloth in the disinfectant, then attach it to the robot cleaner and disinfect the house. As the mop spreads the disinfectant, the bot dispenses water to cover the 200m² surface area. You can do the same with cleaning solutions when you want to clean the floors. Remember to dilute the solution to avoid ruining your Dreame robot vacuum. You can also apply the solution to the floor using a spray bottle and let it sit for some minutes before you command your robot to clean the surface. Wrap Up The best way to disinfect floors is, to begin with cleaning the surface. Remove all the dirt and ensure that the floor is spotlessly clean. Allow the floor to dry before you begin disinfecting it using the floor type's right cleaner. A majority of the disinfectants come as concentrated solutions, so read the instructions to learn how to dilute them before using them on your floor. And while you are at it, remember to protect your hands and face from the harsh chemicals using protective kits. Allow the antibacterial cleaning agent to dwell on the floor for some time so that it can kill the disease-causing pathogens. Failure to do so will result in wasted efforts, and you will have wasted resources too.
