How To Deep Clean Your Bedroom

Sharing is caring!

How To Deep Clean Your Bedroom – grab our top to bottom cleaning checklist for really deep cleaning and organising the bedroom, and sort your life out!

Having a clean and tidy bedroom is actually really important for a good sleep routine.

When slipping between the sheets at night, a clean, well organised bedroom can help to create a calm sleeping environment, and reduce stress and anxiety, making it much easier to relax and get a restful nights sleep.

We’d recommend deep cleaning the bedroom every 3 months. As well as regular weekly cleans in-between. This will help to reduce allergens and bacteria.

And… it feels just so good to get into bed in a clean and tidy room, especially if those sheets have been dried outside on the line. Perfect!

What You’ll Need To Deep Clean Your Bedroom

Everything you’ll need to give your bedroom a thorough deep clean.

  • Surface cleaner – I like Method Multi-Surface Cleaner in French Lavender it smells divine and you can clean most surfaces with it. Plus I like the bedroom to smell of lavender, it’s a relaxing scent.
  • Window cleaner – you can make your own glass cleaner here with our homemade window cleaner recipe here, this leaves glass streak free.
  • Bags/boxes for rubbish and clutter to give away

Also, if you don’t have closet storage or drawer dividers it maybe worth picking some of these up so you can create super organised cupboards and closets.

We’d recommend the following

What Is A Deep Clean

A deep clean is where you totally declutter your space and clean everything in it from floor to ceiling.

It includes every cupboard, box, shelf and windows, window sills, ceiling fans, countertops, EVERYTHING! If it’s there, then it needs to be cleaned.

So, before you make a start, the best thing to do is to open the windows wide, and get some fresh air circulating. And, put some music on. Cleaning to music is always a good thing!

Wardrobes, Closets, Nightstands, Dressers and Drawers

  • Empty everything out. Sort through your clothes and belongings, get rid of items no longer wanted. You can either donate them to charity, or throw them away.
  • Vacuum and clean the inside of the wardrobes and drawers, use the soft brush attachment on the vacuum cleaner.
  • Wipe the insides of the cupboards with microfibre cloth and the multi surface cleaner (if suitable for the surface)
  • Then put everything that you are keeping back into the cupboards and drawers. Arrange neatly or use storage solutions, so that it’s organised and easy to use.

Declutter Surfaces

  • Declutter and clean on top of the wardrobes. I usually vacuum the top of the wardrobe, as it can become really dusty up there.
  • Declutter and clean all surfaces, removing any dust or dirt. Don’t forget to dust ceiling corners and remove any cobwebs.

Areas To Clean During Your Deep Clean Of The Bedroom

  • Clean door handles and light switches
  • If you have a ceiling fan, clean the ceiling fan blades too.


  • Take down and wash the curtains (as per laundry instructions if they’re machine-washable, otherwise have them dry cleaned). Once they’re clean and dry, re-hang them at the windows.
  • Vacuum and clean blinds and per the manufacturer instructions. Here’s how we clean Venetian blinds.
  • Vacuum window vents, wash the windows and clean the windowsills and window frames. I like to clean windows using a bucket of warm soapy water with a cup of white vinegar swirled into it. I wash with a damp cloth, rinse, then buff dry with paper towel or dry cotton cloth.
  • Clean mirrors – we use our homemade window cleaner for this job. Alternatively you can use the warm soapy water with vinegar that you used for the windows.
