Useful tips to follow
Clean all your electrical appliances. Cleaning an oven is not the same as cleaning a fridge- every appliance will need special attention so start by spraying the right chemicals inside the fridge (which needs to be turned off for at least 24 hours beforehand), oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, etc. Then start scrubbing the one you sprayed first continuing by order. Pay attention to the stubborn spots. After that you can freshen the inside wipe everything down and you have finished cleaning your appliances.
Clean and disinfect your countertop and cabinets. There really isn’t anything difficult about cleaning the preparation and storage areas because most of the time it isn’t very dirty. Spraying the countertop with a disinfecting/antibacterial solution giving it a scrubbing and wiping down is all you need to do. The cabinets where you have stored food will probably have some spilling so give all of them a thorough wipe down and in the end, you can use a wood chemical to freshen them up. Make sure you clean on top of your upper cabinets if you have them. Read as many as possible kitchen cleaning articles that will help you achieve amazing results. Check here first.
Do not forget to vacuum/sweep and mop the floors. Vacuum any rugs and carpets as well as wood flooring. If you have tiles you can sweep thoroughly then mop the ground using the proper solution for the floor type. Clean small details. Dust all light fixtures and shelves, power outlets, cables. Clean the windows with a glass cleaner. Treat any upholstery that has started looking a little disgusting. This way, you will get:
