Assimilate the Cleaning Supplies
Save time, energy, and effort by keeping the cleaning supplies on hand before you start the kitchen deep cleaning process. Here’s a list of things we recommend having on hand:
- A high-performance vacuum cleaner
- Microfiber cloths, towels, mop, and duster
- A multipurpose cleaner
- A TGA-approved disinfectant
- Sponges, scouring pads and brushes of different sizes
- Buckets, mugs, spray bottles and other containers for solutions
Dust Vacuum all Surfaces and Fixtures
Always work your way from top to bottom while dusting and vacuuming to ensure the dust and debris collect in the lower areas which makes for an easier, final cleanup. This is a professional technique that prevents recontamination of already cleaned areas. So, dust the walls, cabinets, countertop, and the other regions first, then vacuum them to collect any remaining pollutants. Ensure to focus on lights, fans, the exhaust fan, and other fixtures during this step. Also, wipe shelves, corners, and crevices, as these spots are often overlooked by contractors when they clean.
Clean and Wipe the Cabinets and Storage Areas
Next, use a multipurpose cleaner and apply it to the storage areas. Wait 2-3 minutes and wipe with a wet microfiber cloth and then a dry cloth. Repeat this process until the cabinets, shelves, drawers, and other storage areas are lovey and clean and sparkling. Leave them open to further air dry.
Scrub Tiles and Grout
If your kitchen has tiled areas, apply the cleaner and scrub with a soft but gentle brush. Use a narrow-head brush or a toothbrush to clean the grout. Mop the tiles with water or collect the residue with a wet microfiber cloth.
Clean the Stove, Sink and Countertop
Using a soft sponge, dishwashing liquid and warm water scrub the stove, sink and countertop to remove stains, grime, grease, or dirt from these areas. While scrubbing, make circular motions to get the best results. Afterwards, wash the sink with water and wipe the sink and countertop with a wet microfiber cloth. Additionally, wipe the surfaces with a dry cloth to avoid water stains.
Disinfect All Surfaces
In a spray bottle, pour a TGA-approved disinfectant or make your own by mixing 1 part bleach with 10 parts water. Spray the disinfectant on the surfaces and wait 5-10 minutes. If the solution dries before the waiting time is over, reapply. Disinfectants need time to kill germs. You must use them after cleaning to prevent physical contaminants from shielding the germs and increasing the risk of infectious diseases. Wipe all the disinfected areas with a dry microfiber towel to buff them.
Sweep and Mop the Floor
Always clean the floor at the end as it will collect all the dust and residue from the surfaces above. First, sweep to collect any loose dust and debris. Next, fill the mop bucket with the cleaning solution and mop thoroughly to sanitise the floor. Turn on the fan to dry the floor and other kitchen surfaces completely.
Stand Back and Admire!
After all your hard work, don’t forget to stand back and admire your gorgeous, shiny newly renovated kitchen!

You can hire a professional cleaning service to deep-clean your newly renovated kitchen. However, if you plan to do it yourself, follow the steps above and be confident in your ability to replicate professional results.
