In our previous post, we talked about decorating the bedroom. In such a private and generally separated space- lighting, furniture and decor reflect the occupant in a way that other rooms don’t. A space this personal also needs to be cleaned differently than others. Beds, and the surrounding areas as well as surfaces like dressers and nightstands offer a unique cleaning arena in your home.
In most rooms, we’ll recommend starting with the highest reachable surface. This because anything that falls will land on whatever surface you may have otherwise stared with. In a room like the bedroom where fans run more than most other spaces- the fan can accumulate dust and pet fur faster than anything else in the house. Start by dusting the ceiling, light fixtures and fan blades.
Wipe every surface clean
In your bedroom are a lot of surfaces: tabletops, cabinets, drawers, a chair, your make-up kit, a display cabinet: you name it. And that too can be a source of accumulated dirt from the outside and even internally. To start wiping off the surface of these objects, you need to be prepared with two types of rags: one that is dry and one that is damp. For objects that can be wiped wet and have accumulated dirt, use the damp one to collect the dust away from those objects. Then, for objects that might need a light brush-off, you can use the dry rag to clean the objects.
Please take note that there are other wiping techniques you can employ, including using isopropyl alcohol for surfaces you use the most, including the table top or your study desk in
accordance with sanitary standards.
Sweep and Mop the floors
Most of the time, when we clean the floor it’s just all about just sweeping the floor, but really it’s also about cleaning it to discourage unwanted creature visitors. Aside from the dust accumulated, some of the things that you might have missed and are considered foreign materials include crumbs from the food you ate, spilled drinks you haven’t noticed, textile fragments from clothes and your bedsheets, scraps of paper and plastic from office or grocery: among other things.
The simplest way to start your bedroom cleaning is through sweeping the floor with a broom. Start off first with the corners and then make your way out to the door where you have a dust scooper to collect the swept dust. If the sweeping isn’t enough, you can opt out for a hand-held vacuum cleaner to collect from nooks and crannies of your bedroom. And we haven’t settled yet, preparing for the mopping process, with choosing the perfect soap- water solution that not just smells nice but also allows us to properly clean the floor. To mop the floor, start with the farthest part to the part near your door. That way, there’s an even clean of the floor.
