Deep cleaning your entire home is a huge task in its own right and there is nothing worse than having a whole house to clean and not knowing where to start. There is going to be a lot to do and with any big task planning is key. If you have a busy household, or are dividing up the workload, this can make it easier to keep track of what has been done, what needs doing and who is doing what – divide and conquer.

Dusting, Polishing & Vacuuming

Getting rid of any excess dust on surfaces, carpets, curtains or in any hidden corners can make cleaning easier. It can also save you from having to double up on a workload by dusting and polishing before you clean your carpet because you would not be putting dust back on the floor.


The carpet may not be considered the heart of the home but it is the thing that gets put through its paces every day and although it may look like it, vacuuming is not enough to clean carpets. Vanish has a range of products that can effectively clean your carpet, remove pet hair and get rid of stains ensuring your carpet is ready for your guests arrival.

There may be a few ways that you want to tackle your carpet cleaning:
