Fast & Effective Bedroom Cleaning: Deep Clean Your Space in 35 Minutes

If you make your bed daily, change your bedding weekly and follow a regular vacuuming and dusting regime, you may feel that your work in the bedroom is done. But by following our bedroom cleaning tips, you will flush out nasties you didn't even know you were there. Your bedroom should be your relaxation haven, but did you know it is also a haven for allergens such as dust, dust-mites, mould spores and more? Yikes!
Don't worry, a deep clean will have you breathing easier and sleeping easier too. It's also a project that can be completed in a single afternoon (unless you need to declutter too).
When was the last time you put your pillows in the wash, or steam cleaned your carpet? Can you remember the last time you vacuumed your mattress and behind heavy furniture? If you're struggling to remember, it could mean that it's time you cleaned your room.
We know that harsh chemicals and store-bought cleaning sprays can often contribute to indoor air pollution, so resist the urge to employ an arsenal of disinfectants, sprays and more and instead opt of natural alternatives.
Here's how to deep clean your room.

Keep bedroom clean and tidy the bed

Keeping your bedroom clean and tidy starts with making your bed. Work your way around the room by dusting surfaces, putting away clothes and linen in the hamper, and throwing away any trash lying around.

Start with the nightstand, dresser, and drawer, and make sure to put items back in their proper place. Deep-cleaning your dresser drawers only takes a few minutes and can save you time in the long run. To keep your room clean and clutter-free, make the bed and clean laundry at least every 30 days.

Use microfiber cloths and the right cleaning supplies to get your bedroom clean quickly and easily. With some simple steps, like vacuuming or sweeping regularly, and working from the top to bottom, your messy bedroom can become a clean oasis in no time.

  • Pile up blankets, pillows, curtains and mattress and pillow protectors and sort into piles that need to be washed, dry cleaned, replaced or aired.
  • If it's a warm, dry day, consider pulling your mattress out into the sun where it can air out. Sprinkle it with a little bit of bi-carb soda to remove any unpleasant odors.
  • Vacuum mattress with brush attachment, focusing on any piping and other crevices.

Remove clutter from the floor step-by-step

Removing clutter from the floor can be a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be. By following a few simple steps, you can have a clutter-free floor in no time. Start by grabbing a duster or a broom to sweep away any cobwebs or dust bunnies.

Next, enlist the help of a friend or family member, such as a parent or sibling, to help you sort through the clutter. Decide what items are essential and what things that don’t belong on the floor, and put them in their rightful place. Tackle one room at a time to avoid getting overwhelmed.

Start with the fastest and easiest rooms to clean before moving on to the more challenging areas like the basement or garage.

Finally, take a few minutes to put away any clean clothes, window treatments, and bedding, like a clean comforter or set of sheets, to make the room look fresh and tidy. Remember to take it a bit every day, and soon you’ll know exactly how to clean a room quickly and easily.

  • Vacuum floor, including under the bed and furniture. Use attachments to get into tight spaces.
  • For wooden floors, follow up with a light mop using a gentle floor cleaner.

Clean windows and mirrors and wash your bedding

To achieve a truly clean and fresh bedroom, it's important to pay attention to the details like windows, mirrors, and bedding. Use a squeegee and a glass cleaner to clean your windows and mirrors, ensuring a streak-free finish.

For bedding, strip off all the sheets and pillowcases and wash them in hot water with a mild detergent. Don't forget to wash your comforter or duvet as well. Once everything is clean, make the bed with fresh sheets and a cozy comforter. This will not only make your bed look inviting but also help you sleep better at night. By taking these extra steps, your bedroom will feel clean and inviting, allowing you to relax and enjoy your personal space.

  • Dust and wipe down light fittings, ceiling fans, skirting boards, picture rails, tops of doors and hanging frames. You'll be amazed at how much a microfibre cloth will pick up.
  • For cornices, you may need to grab the step ladder and wipe with a damp cloth. If you don't have a step ladder handy, grab your vacuum, extend the wand, and using the brush attachment, vacuum the dust.


Clean surfaces 

To keep your home clean, it's important to regularly clean surfaces such as countertops, tables, and shelves. Start by clearing off any clutter or items that don't belong there. Next, use a damp cloth or cleaning wipe to wipe down the surface.

For tougher stains, use a cleaning product that's appropriate for the surface. It's also a good idea to regularly disinfect surfaces to prevent the spread of germs. Once you've cleaned the surfaces, take a few minutes to organize any items that you've removed from the surface. This will help prevent clutter from accumulating in the future and make your home look neat and tidy.

  • Dust and clean all surfaces with a natural spray cleaner or a damp microfibre cloth. Don't forget light switches.
  • Give mirrors the once-over with a solution of methylated spirits and water (1/4 cup to 1/2 bucket of water). Don't use newspaper as the ink may smudge.

Start cleaning the wardrobe and put away dirty clothes

  • Wardrobes can often harbour nasties such as mould and dust. Clear the floor and vacuum away any dirt and debris.
  • Wipe down shelves with a solution of vinegar and water. Allow to dry completely before putting clothes away.
  • Replace any moisture absorbers and fragrance sachets if required.
  • If, while cleaning your wardrobe you find that mildew is a problem, check out our guide to removing mould and mildew.



Curtains and blinds: neat and tidy

To keep your home clean and tidy, it's important to remember to clean your curtains and blinds regularly. Dust, pet hair, and other debris can accumulate on these surfaces, making them look dull and dirty.

Use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to gently clean the surface of your curtains and blinds, being careful not to damage delicate fabrics or parts.

For a deeper clean, you may need to remove the curtains or blinds and wash them by hand or in the washing machine. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning to avoid damaging the material. By keeping your curtains and blinds neat and tidy, you can improve the overall appearance of your home and create a more comfortable living space.

  • Wipe or dust down blinds with a soft, clean brush. Brush away any cobwebs from ceiling corners.
  • Remove curtains from the curtain rod and machine wash with a mild detergent. Allow to dry completely.

You could also consider having a cable management box if you have a TV in your bedroom and a messy wire clutter around. The dust from the wire clutter can accumulate a lot  of dust than you think, so its a worthy and little investment.

The air

  • Consider investing in an air-purifying unit or fan. This will help to keep your bedroom ventilated and from airborne allergens such as dust, pollen and mould spores. You can buy one that purifies the entire room, or a personal machine which can be placed on a bedside table and deliver purified air right where it's needed.
  • Detach any ducted air-conditioning vents and wash them in a solution of vinegar, soap and water. This will dissolve grime and wash away any surface dust. Dry vents thoroughly before putting them back into place.

  • If you have a reverse-cycle air-conditioner, you may need to clean the wall unit.


Now that you know the steps, make your bedroom tidying routine run smoothly with this easy-to-follow room cleaning checklist.
