Tips For Cleaning Your Kitchen

If you think an ordinary kitchen cleaning is a big deal, then you won’t like doing a comprehensive kitchen cleaning. It’s no small task, but you must perform one occasionally if you want to maintain a sanitary environment for preparing and eating meals. Contact us if you are looking for the go to option for house cleaning Melbourne.

To help you get the job done like a pro, start by gathering your supplies.

Gather The Right Materials

It’s going to take more than a broom and mop to get the job done. At the least, you’ll need the following:

  • Long-handled dust mop
  • Cleaning cloth
  • Sponges
  • Broom and mop
  • Stepladder or stool
  • Small bucket
  • Vacuum with attachments
  • Dish soap or a mild detergent
  • Oven cleaner
  • Shelf liner and drawer dividers

Once you have all of these together, you can begin the actual clean-up process. Read on for our Top 10 tips for getting a spick-and-span kitchen. 

Our Top 10 Kitchen Cleaning Tips

1. Declutter

Get rid of anything that’s not serving a purpose in the kitchen. Once the clutter is gone, there are fewer places for dirt to hide, and you’ll have an easier time reaching all of the surfaces that need cleaning.

2. Clean the Walls and Accoutrements

Get rid of the cobwebs hanging around the corners and ceiling. You can use the dust mop for this. If there are spots on the wall with grease stains, grime, or other markings, scrub them clean.
After the walls, wash the air vents, doorknobs, doors, and other surfaces that might carry germs or stains.

3. Clean the Ceiling Fan

Your kitchen’s ceiling fan accumulates dust, and grease smoke from cooking causes that dust to congeal. To get rid of this grime, use a gentle cleanser, oil soap, or detergent. You might need to remove light fixtures from the fan and wash and dry them separately.

4. Clean the Windows

If you have drapes in your kitchen, you’ll have to toss them in the washer or replace them with fresh ones. If you have blinds, clean them according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Use soap and water to clean the inside and outside of the windows and use a vacuum to clean sills and corners. If there’s a screen, take it down and rinse and put it back in place.

5. Tackle the Oven and Refrigerator

Large appliances are the part of cleaning the kitchen that most people dread.

To make your work easier, pour oven cleaner on the surfaces of the oven. While the solution loosens the grime, empty your fridge. Toss old and spoiled food into a rubbish bag, and place the good stuff on your kitchen counter.

Now, you can return to the oven to clean off the grease and other residues that the oven cleaner has loosened, then rinse and dry.

6. Clean the Stove

Clean and wipe down the stove according to the directions provided in the owner’s manual. If you don’t have one, get cleaning instructions from an online search for the make and model of your stove.

7. Take on the Remaining Appliances

Disconnect small and large appliances before cleaning them. These include the toaster, microwave, dishwasher, and such. Be sure to also clean in, under, and around these appliances.

8. Clean and Organise Kitchen Cabinets and Drawers

Empty your kitchen cabinets of clutter and throw away what you don’t need. If necessary, you can then freshly line the cabinet’s interior

9. Clean the Countertops and Sink

Wipe down the surfaces of your kitchen sink and countertop. Also, clean off the backsplash on nearby walls.

10. Sweep and Mop the Floors

Finally, sweep out the debris, then mop the kitchen floor to round up the cleaning exercise.


As you can see, performing a proper comprehensive kitchen cleaning takes significant time and energy. Instead of going through the trouble yourself, contact us today, and we’ll send out a professional who can get the job done quicker and with impressive results. All you have to do it stand back and admire the sparkle!
