Despite being one of the easiest rooms to deep clean, the bedroom is probably one of the most important. A clean and decluttered bedroom is essential for a good night’s rest.  When a bedroom has dirt, dust, and an excess amount of clutter, it can make it very hard to relax and fall asleep.

This can be especially important if you or another member of your family suffers from allergies. So, setting aside time to deep clean your home can not only improve your quality of sleep it provides a healthier environment for you and your loved ones.

How Often Should You Deep Clean The Bedroom?

Honestly, this really depends on you. I like to give my home a good deep clean twice a year, once in the spring and then again in the fall just before the holidays. But, I also use my monthly cleaning schedule to stay on top of those places that are often forgotten in our homes.

  • Picking up dirty clothes off the floor.
  • Putting away clean clothes that haven’t been taken care of yet.
  • Taking care of anything that doesn’t belong on dressers or nightstands.

5-Day Bedroom Deep Cleaning Challenge

Day 1-Dust hard surfaces

  • Dust the ceiling, removing any cobwebs in the corners.
  • Dust window blinds.
  • Dust the ceiling light fixture or ceiling fan with a microfiber cloth.
  • Wipe down wall art, picture frames, or decorations.
  • Dust the top and sides of the dresser.
  • Dust lamps and lampshades.
  • Dust the top and sides of any bedside stands.
  • Dust headboard.

If you have a television in your room, don’t forget to dust that as well with a microfiber cloth or electronic wipes. You can also take this time to dust your walls and baseboards if you prefer to clean them seasonally instead of monthly. 

Day 2- Clean bedroom furniture

  • Pull everything out of dressers, and declutter any items you are no longer using. Wipe out the dresser drawers then put clothing back. 
  • Take out items from bedside stands, go through items, and throw away or declutter anything you don’t want. Wipe out drawers or shelves and then put items back in.
  • Clean mirrors. 

Day 3-Clean mattress/wash bedding

  • Remove bedding and wash
  • Vacuum your mattress. You can also flip or rotate the mattress at this time.
  • Vacuum under your bed

Since this is a smaller deep cleaning day, you can add cleaning the windows and curtains to the list if you clean them seasonally. I’ve recently added them to my monthly cleaning schedule so they were not originally included in this bedroom deep cleaning challenge.

Day 4- Clean closet

  • Pull all items and clothing out of your closet. If you are deep cleaning in the spring, pack away your winter clothes, then go through your spring/summer clothes and decide what you want to keep and what you want to get rid of.
  • Vacuum the floor in the closet.
  • Then, put all clothing back in the closet.

Day 5- Vacuum Floors

  • Move any furniture to vacuum underneath.
  • Spot treat any carpet stains.
  • Vacuum the entire room.

And that’s it! Hopefully, this bedroom deep cleaning challenge helped you avoid the cleaning overwhelm that can occur when starting a big cleaning project.

The ultimate goal while creating these challenges was to break up these cleaning tasks into manageable chunks so it wasn’t so stressful because they could be done over an extended period of time instead of all at once. 

I know that it can sometimes feel impossible just to keep up with our daily cleaning tasks which is why I wanted to find some way to provide motivation to clean your home even when you don’t feel like it but you know it must be done.

Don’t forget to check out the other challenges in this series above. If you would prefer to work on your deep cleaning on your own time instead of focusing on specific rooms, you can try my 30-day deep cleaning challenge instead.
