What is professional deep cleaning? It's a thorough service that goes beyond your usual cleaning routine. Professional cleaners use specialized solutions and equipment to remove grime, dust, and allergens throughout your home or commercial space.

This includes deep cleaning kitchen appliances, sanitizing bathrooms, scrubbing floors, and dusting hard-to-reach areas like window sills and ceiling fans. The goal is a sparkling clean, disinfected space that feels fresh and healthy. To ensure nothing is missed, use a deep cleaning checklist when hiring professionals.

Use the comprehensive checklist from EuroMaids!




1. Sinks Are Scrubbed and Sanitized

Sinks are thoroughly scrubbed to remove grime, stains, and any lingering food particles. A suitable cleaning solution and a sturdy scrub brush tackle even the toughest residue. Finally, the sink is sanitized to eliminate bacteria, leaving it sparkling and hygienic.

2. Countertops & Range Tops Cleaned

Countertops and range tops are given a thorough cleaning to remove spills, grease, and food debris. A suitable cleaner cuts through the mess, and stove grates and other cooking surfaces are scrubbed clean.

3. Appliance Exteriors Cleaned (Oven, Refrigerator, Dishwasher)

Appliance exteriors, including the oven, refrigerator, and dishwasher, are cleaned to a shine. The oven interior is scrubbed with a specialized cleaner or baking soda mixture, removing any baked-on food. Refrigerator shelves and drawers are washed with warm soapy water, and the dishwasher interior is sanitized with a dishwasher-safe cleaner or vinegar.

4. Outside of Range Hood Cleaned

The range hood exterior is thoroughly wiped down to remove grease and dust. This helps keep your kitchen's ventilation system working efficiently.

5. Microwave Cleaned Inside and Out

Microwave Cleaned Inside and Out

The microwave can become a breeding ground for food splatters, grease, and stubborn odors. To ensure a truly fresh and hygienic appliance, we go beyond a quick wipe-down.

During our deep clean, we:

  • Remove loose crumbs from the interior with a paper towel.
  • Mix warm water with mild dish soap or microwave cleaner.
  • Dampen a microfiber cloth with the solution and wipe down all internal surfaces, including the turntable, door, and gasket.
  • For tough stains, create a baking soda and water paste. Apply it, gently scrub with a non-abrasive sponge, and wipe clean.
  • Leave the door open for a few minutes to air dry and prevent lingering moisture or odors.

6. Cabinet Doors Wiped Down

Cabinet doors are a high-touch surface, collecting dust, fingerprints, and grime over time. During our deep clean, we don't just wipe them down with a dry cloth. We use a damp microfiber cloth with a cleaning solution suitable for your cabinet material (wood, laminate, etc.) to remove any built-up dirt and leave the doors spotless and streak-free.

We also pay close attention to cabinet hardware, including handles and knobs, ensuring they gleam alongside the rest of the cabinets.

7. Dusting and Wiping Surfaces

We thoroughly dust and wipe down window sills, ceiling fans, blinds, tables, chairs, and the tops of furniture. This also includes cleaning frames and door frames to remove dust and dirt buildup.

8. Trash Emptied

Trash bins are emptied and lined with fresh liners to maintain cleanliness and hygiene.

9. Floor Vacuumed and Washed

Floors are first vacuumed to remove crumbs and loose debris. They're then mopped with a suitable cleaner, removing stains, spills, and any lingering dirt. We pay extra attention to high-traffic areas and spaces like those underneath appliances.



1. All the Details Cleaned

Vanities, sinks, showers, bathtubs, and chrome fixtures are thoroughly scrubbed and sanitized. Cleaning solutions remove soap scum, grime, and bacteria, leaving your bathroom sparkling and hygienic.

2. Toilets Disinfected Inside and Out, Including Base and Behind

To ensure a truly hygienic bathroom environment, we pay special attention to toilets. Our thorough disinfection process includes:

  • Cleaning the toilet bowl: We use a powerful disinfectant specifically formulated for toilets to kill germs and bacteria both above and below the water line. We scrub the bowl thoroughly with a toilet brush, paying close attention to areas under the rim and around the hardware.
  • Disinfecting the exterior: We don't forget the toilet seat, lid, and base. We wipe them down with a disinfectant solution to ensure a sanitized surface that comes into frequent contact.
  • Reaching behind the toilet: We understand that the area behind the toilet can harbor germs and dust bunnies. We use flexible cleaning tools and disinfectant wipes to reach and clean this often-neglected area, ensuring a thorough cleaning.

3. Mirrors Cleaned

We remove streaks, water spots, and fingerprints, leaving mirrors and glass surfaces sparkling.

4. Window Sills, Baseboards, Air Vents Cleaned

Window sills, baseboards, and air vents are diligently cleaned to remove accumulated dust and dirt. This not only enhances the overall appearance of the space but also promotes better air quality by eliminating dust and allergens, creating a fresh and inviting atmosphere throughout the room.

5. Trash Emptied

We empty bathroom trash bins and reline them for a clean and hygienic space.

6. Floor Vacuumed/Washed and Disinfected

We vacuum bathroom floors to remove hair and debris. Then, we mop and disinfect them with a suitable cleaner, ensuring a truly clean and hygienic surface.



1. Beds Made Properly & Linens Changed (If Left Out)

Ensuring a restful and hygienic sleep environment is our priority. Our bed-making goes beyond just smoothing the sheets:

  • Adjusting the mattress pad and fitted sheet: We smooth the mattress pad and fitted sheet, eliminating wrinkles for a comfortable night's rest.
  • Placing the flat sheet: We spread the flat sheet evenly and tuck it neatly for a tidy appearance.
  • Folding and arranging the blanket: We neatly fold your blanket and place it at the foot of the bed, creating a welcoming look.
  • Changing linens (if requested): If you've left out fresh linens, we'll gladly change your sheets and pillowcases for a clean and comfortable bed.

2. All Areas Dusted

When we say "all areas dusted", we mean a thorough and meticulous removal of dust from various surfaces and objects. Here's how we tackle dust:

  • Furniture surfaces: We target dust bunnies and cobwebs on top of dressers, nightstands, headboards, and other furniture. We pay close attention to areas that tend to accumulate dust, like tabletops, lamp bases, and electronics.
  • Electronics: We gently remove dust from TVs, computers, and other electronic devices. This helps prevent overheating and ensures optimal performance.
  • Decorative items: We carefully clean picture frames, knick-knacks, and other decorative items using a soft brush or microfiber cloth to protect delicate surfaces.
  • Light fixtures: We remove dust from ceiling fans, light fixtures, and lampshades. For ceiling fans, we use a ladder and appropriate tools to reach and clean the blades and surrounding areas. For lampshades, we use the appropriate cleaning method depending on the material (e.g., wiping fabric shades with a damp cloth or using a vacuum attachment for some lampshade types).
  • Baseboards and moldings: We use a dusting tool or a damp microfiber cloth to remove dust from baseboards, moldings, and corners. This eliminates dust bunnies and cobwebs that often accumulate in these areas.
  • Clutter considerations: If there is clutter on surfaces, we cannot dust underneath or behind those items. We recommend decluttering surfaces before the cleaning service to ensure a thorough dust removal throughout the bedroom.

7. Detailed Baseboards

Detailed Baseboards

When deep cleaning bedroom baseboards, we focus on the details to remove dust, grime, and allergens that often build up in these areas. Our process includes:

  • Dusting and cobweb removal: We remove loose dust and cobwebs from the baseboards and surrounding areas.
  • Targeted cleaning solution: We choose a cleaning solution suited to your baseboard material (wood, vinyl, painted, etc.) and apply it to a damp microfiber cloth. We avoid harsh chemicals to protect your baseboards.
  • Scrubbing and wiping: We gently scrub the baseboards with the damp microfiber cloth, paying special attention to corners, edges, and grooves where dirt tends to gather. We take care to avoid soaking the baseboards to prevent water damage.
  • Rinsing and drying: We frequently rinse the microfiber cloth in clean water to remove dirt and prevent spreading it. We finish by wiping the baseboards dry with a separate microfiber cloth to prevent streaks and watermarks.
  • Vacuuming option: For heavily soiled baseboards or carpeted areas, we might use the crevice attachment of a vacuum cleaner to remove dust and debris before using the damp microfiber cloth.

8. Detailed Blinds and Ceiling Fans

Blinds and ceiling fans are cleaned for improved air quality and appearance.

Preparing the Space for Deep Cleaning

To ensure a smooth and efficient cleaning experience, we kindly ask that you:

  • Secure any fragile items: Wrap or cushion fragile items and let us know where they are.
  • Tidy up clutter: Put away any loose items like papers, clothes, or non-decorative objects to give us better access to clean all surfaces thoroughly.
  • Empty the sink and dishwasher: This allows us to focus on cleaning the entire kitchen area without obstacles.

By taking these simple steps, you'll help us maximize our cleaning time and deliver the most comprehensive clean.
