Idk that I Deep clean but I wash/vacuum floors, dust/wipe down counter tops, wash windows,...
I get all the surface stuff done, like picking up toys, laundry, etc. Then I go from the front of my house to the back. I do the kitchen and dining area first, completely taking appliances off the counters and scrubbing them down and scrubbing the counters underneath before replacing them. Then I move on to the living room where I will do the vacuuming and wipe down the couches (we have faux leather couches) with clorox wipes. I also take the cushions off and vacuum the couches out. Then I do spot checks for any new stains and do some quick carpet treatment if there are new spots. After I vacuum the the living room I go back and move all the chairs from the dining room into the living room and I sweep and mop the kitchen. While I'm waiting for the floors to dry the kids and I will wipe down the dining room chairs with clorox wipes. Then I move into the hall way and vacuum there. I move into the main bathroom after that and clean everything from the tile in the bathroom down to sweeping and mopping the floor (this is also where we keep the cat box, so we have to sweep at least once a week or you see little bits of grit along the walls and it drives me nuts!) I use foam cleaner on the sink, bathtub, and outside of the toilet. Clorox toilet bowl cleaner inside the toilet and tilex for the shower walls, and windex for the mirror.
If I'm feeling really ambitious I move on to the bedrooms, but that doesn't happen as often as it should. My 10 year old is in charge of doing her own room but my 1, 2, and 3 year old share a room and it needs to be cleaned far more often than it gets cleaned. We pick up toys every night, but I should definitely go in and disinfect it at least once a week and I'm lucky if I do it once a month.
I just do one room at a time from top to bottom.
Everything gets cleaned. I'm sure you know what basic cleaning looks like? Well, the not so basic that I also do on a regular basis, walls baseboard, doors.. Scrub em all.. This is a once a week thing for me. My whole house takes about 4 hours, minus the kids bedrooms and their bathroom, because that's their job.

I tidy/straighten up.

ugh i need to deep clean bad! it's kinda hard though when both my DH and I work full-time out of the home! Looking for a sunny weekend here soon to just buckle down and get it done, though. The biggest things on my list are shampooing my carpets, washing the walls, cleaning under/behind the fridge/stove/washer&dryer.
