Your FREE Home Cleaning Guide

Clean your home the HouseWorks way and get perfect results like we do!

We're all so busy nowadays it's easy to neglect the housework. A quick vacuum, brief dust, but are you really removing the dirt or just moving it around?

To help make sure you do a through job every week, we're going to share our cleaning expertise in a 20-point plan. HouseWorks has one of the most effective and efficient ways of cleaning a home.

  • Tidy everywhere. Put clean dishes away. Load or unload dishwasher.
  • Dust everywhere starting at the top of the house and at the top of each room - starting with cobwebs in corners and moving down.
  • Wipe and polish surfaces. This includes sills, skirting, tops of doors and mouldings, then smaller furniture like side tables, fireplaces and units.
  • Wipe light fixings, switches, tops of mirrors, pictures etc
  • Clean leather furniture and wood with specialist treatments.
  • Empty all bins and take outside. Clean kitchen bin and others if dirty.
  • Polish mirrors with glass cleaner and all brass
  • Take cushions and rugs outside to bang free of dust.
  • Pull out beds - vacuum and clean behind
  • Change bedding and replace with new sheets
  • Bleach kitchen sink, wipe surfaces and cupboard doors.
  • Clean hob & extractor and wipe backsplash
  • Clean inside of microwave and oven
  • Scrub bath, shower & sinks (don't forget plug hairs!)
  • Polish taps and other fittings
  • Clean sink pedestals and outside of toilet
  • Disinfect toilet and leave for 30 mins. Then brush to clean.
  • Wipe front door inside and out
  • Vacuum all carpets and sweep all laminate/wood floors
  • Wash/mop floors with relevant cleaner. Pay particular attention around toilets and washbasins.

Other things to remember

Use different cloths for different rooms (HouseWorks Cleaners have colour-coded baskets for each area in the home). This ensures germs aren't spread from the kitchen to the bedroom for example.

Make sure you have the right products. Cream cleaners are too abrasive for some surfaces and anti-bacterial products should be used in the kitchen and bathroom. We would always recommend having specialist products for certain things like stainless steel, glass and wood.

There are still one-off jobs that will need doing every so often; these include oven cleaning, fridge cleaning, carpet cleaning, windows, and cupboards. Probably what you would call a Spring Clean - but these actually need doing more than once a year (sorry!). So schedule these in, perhaps doing one a month on rotation.

If all this sounds far too difficult - don't worry you could always call HouseWorks and get our staff to do your dirty work! Phone 0845 519 7135 and ask about our regular cleaning service or our incredible 'one-off' spring clean,
