No one likes housework, but even if you’re Cinderella scrubbing the floor every day, there is only so much you can do. The effects of time and use will not be stalled by the latest product to hit the supermarket shelves and sheer elbow grease. However, some things need a little extra effort once in a while, either to make your home look brand new, or to avoid some future negative consequences.
Take a look at our guide to the most important areas of your home that need a deep clean.
Cleaning your gutters is an example of cleaning to avoid negative consequences. No matter what the climate in your part of the world, you will need to make sure your gutters are clean. Hot areas are likely to suffer fires from all the dry, fallen leaves that can take a spark from a nearby firepit or barbeque and turn it into an inferno. Meanwhile, those of us in the wetter climates have our chances of flooding dialled up due to a drainage system blocked with moss, plants, and leaves.
The problem here is that most people don’t notice they need their gutters deep cleaned until they are standing in a pool in their living room. Treat it as a preventative measure and have it done once a year to avoid a tragedy.
After years of trekking feet, spilled coffee, and pets rolling around, your carpet might not be looking its best. You might remember going for a colour or pattern designed to brighten up the room, only to find it’s now a grey carpet caused by years of use.
Don’t worry. There is something you can do about it. You can have your carpet cleaned. Not only will it restore your carpet to its original aesthetic state, but it will solve a few other problems that might be caused by the carpet, like allergies. A carpet loves trapping dust and pet hair that might irritate visitors, and yourself, that a simple hoovering isn’t going to shift.
Your carpet will go through a makeover that will improve the whole room, and the health of the people around it while extending the lifespan of the carpet itself.

Much like your gutters, your roof has a nasty habit of developing a small problem that will only get noticed once it becomes a big problem. It’s understandable if you don’t tend to spend a lot of time on top of your roof, so you don’t notice something small that can cause a much bigger problem later on. As a homeowner, it’s very important you understand the signs of a leaking roof.
A good way to find these small problems is to have your roof power washed. With a clean roof, not only will your home look brand new, restoring its original state, but any cracks and issues will be exposed for you to then have treated.
