Tips for Cleaning Your Living Room


The kitchen is known as the heart of the home, but we spend most of our time relaxing and bonding in the living room. That is not easy to accomplish, though, when you have items that are out of place.

Keeping your living room tidy is the key to a restful living space. Although, no one wants to embark on a cleaning binge to relax.

Here are some tips for making sure your living room is looking and feeling at its absolute best.

1. Declutter

The living room is a familiar gathering spot for clutter, and it’s important to return items to their proper rooms. We recommend you buy a shelving unit with doors (which can quickly conceal any unnecessary items). Or you can build habits that make you more conscious of the items you bring into your home.

You can also purchase a clutter basket which allows you to quickly sweep through your living area, tossing everything that doesn’t belong or that you don’t need.

2. Deep Cleaning

While we may do an amazing job of maintaining our living rooms, there are times when we need to do more than that. This is where we should go beyond normal maintenance and deep clean your living room.

Unlike quick dusting and arranging a room, deep cleaning requires a comprehensive, attentive clean of your house.

Even if you dust and vacuum your living room once a week, there are undoubtedly certain areas you overlook. You can make a detailed living room deep cleaning checklist that will make weekly cleaning much easier. Decluttering your living area will make deep cleaning easier.

If you don’t have the time and energy to make a deep clean checklist, you can leave it to our professional deep house cleaning service in Boston.

3. Dealing with Soft Furnishings

If you truly want to deep clean your living room, you’ll have to deal with all of the nice soft furniture that makes it so inviting.

Those sticky spilled throw blankets, tea-stained cushions, weary curtains drapes might all need some freshening up.

Cushion covers and throw rugs can be washed or dried. To be safe, throw rugs should be washed once every two weeks on a moderate cycle in cold water. Allow it to dry naturally.

We recommend washing what you can at home and sending the rest to the dry cleaners for a thorough cleaning.

4. Dust Hard Surfaces

Dust all hard surfaces such as a coffee table, entertainment center, and end tables.

First, remove all items from these surfaces, and spray the furniture polish lightly on them. Using a microfiber towel, wipe away the spray—dust off knickknacks, picture frames, plant pots, and other hard surfaces with a microfiber towel.

5. Vacuum All Areas

Use your vacuum to clean chairs, sofa, carpeting, ceiling fan blades, and area rugs. Always Start cleaning above your head.

Clean the outside of the air vent with the attachment tool. If the air filter appears to be unclean, now is the time to change it. For getting rid of dust bunnies and cobwebs, vacuum the corners where the walls meet the ceiling.

Clean the surfaces of your upholstered furnishings with the attachment still attached to the vacuum cleaner.

Make sure you vacuum the entire floor under the sofa and furniture. Use the attachment for getting into confided. If you have wooden floors, vacuum them first and then mop them with a microfiber cloth.

If you’re short on time, a handheld vacuum can help you swiftly clean up animal fur and crumbs.

6. Spot Clean Floors and Glass Surfaces

Dust, filth, crumbs, and grime accumulate on your floors which makes them dirty. Even if we clean them well, there may be residue left behind. Bugs are well aware of this and will take full advantage. Wipe the floor with a sponge soaked in warm, soapy water. Go over any spots that feel sticky or any visible spot that the vacuum didn’t get.

Use a microfiber cloth and glass cleaner to clean glass table tops, picture frames, interior windows, and other glass surfaces. Spraying the glass cleaner on the microfiber will save you money as you won’t use it as much. It will also allow you to focus on the splatters and grime more evident on the glass.
