What are the steps to cleaning a kitchen?
Before starting the cleaning process, you will first need to gather all the equipment and supplies necessary for the task. These will include:
- Rubber gloves
- Oven cleaner
- All-purpose cleaner
- Vacuum cleaner
- Dish soap
- Dust Mop
Put all these items in a place where they will be readily accessible when you start cleaning and you will be all set.
The most important thing about kitchen cleaning is organization. Namely, in order to speed up and facilitate the process, you should divide it into several segments.
The first stage will entail getting all the objects that may hinder productive cleaning out of the way. Move them to another room and return them after you have cleaned your kitchen, or dispose of them in the trash can if they are completely unnecessary. Also, wash any dirty dishes you might have in your sink or your dishwasher.
Dust all the areas thoroughly. Use a dust mop with an extendable handle or climb your stepladder to reach the highest sections. While you’re up there, don’t forget to clean your ceiling fan because it can get particularly dusty. Finally, make sure to remove any stains that usually occur as a result of frying and blending from your kitchen countertops.
Curtains, drapes and blinds
Curtains will be done in no time, as all you need to do is vacuum them to get rid of loose dust, remove them from the windows, and wash them in your washing machine. The same goes for some drapes but not all of them. Check the label to see if you can wash them the same way as your curtains.
As for blinds, wipe them with a cloth before washing them with an all-purpose cleaner. Rinse, and let them dry off.
Sweep and mop the kitchen floors, as well as your baseboards.
Spray your oven cleaner across the entire surface of the oven and let it rest for 25-35 minutes. Then just wipe away all the residue and the stubborn stains will be gone.
First, unplug the refrigerator and remove all the shelves and drawers so that you can wash them separately. If there is odor in the fridge, it probably originates from food that has gone off. In this case, it is essential that you throw away any spoiled food, as it may have serious health consequences. Clean the entire inside of your fridge, and then return its compartments.
Countertops and sink
Even though they take up a large portion of your kitchen, countertops are pretty easy to clean. The first thing you should do is remove dirt and debris from the surface with a cloth or a paper towel. Then, apply a mixture of warm water and soap using a sponge or a gentle cloth so as to avoid any damage to the countertops. Use a toothbrush for any areas you can’t reach otherwise.
You can use the same mixture for your sink, or opt for an all-purpose cleaner. Wipe the entire sink and do the faucet too.
Simply pour warm water with vinegar down the drain to free up the passages.
To add finishing touches to your kitchen, be sure to clean your microwave, toaster, blender and all the other appliances that need some attention.
