Let’s face it, the last thing we want to do is CLEAN! That’s why you hire me to do your cleaning. However you can’t have me around every single day, right! So what can you do to maintain you home in an efficient time saving manner
- Start by maintaining your most commonly used areas by tidying up your space each day! All it takes is 5 min and will leave you feeling satisfied that your space is clean and avoids large time consuming tasks from building up.
- Think of cleaning your home task by task instead of room by room. For example you may start by tiding up, then dust, and then do all your bathrooms and then your floors. This approach will make it easier and more efficient to clean your space.
- Hate scrubbing your kitchen sinks? Try this little trick - spray your sink down with water and vinegar and sprinkle baking soda in it, leave it for 20 min and then wipe down and rinse. Your sink will shine and it will take less effort and time to get the results you’re looking for.
- Make sure you put all your dishes into the dishwasher each time, and clean your cookware right after you’re done with it – this will prevent build up of dishes and hardening of the food, resulting in effortless cleaning in less time.
- Here is a tip for cleaning your mirror – use vinegar and water instead of Windex. You will notice that it takes less effort and remains cleaner for a longer period of time.
- How do you keep your chrome from having permanent water stains? Use a microfiber cloth that is designed to clean mirrors and wipe down your chrome after using your shower or sink. If you make it a habit to wipe your chrome more regularly it will make a remarkable difference in the long run, even if you miss a day or two in between. This will prevent water stains from ruining your investment.
There is plenty of information you can find on the internet that shows exactly how to remove pet stains, the most common way recommended is vinegar water and baking soda. I do not want to restate what is commonly found; instead I will share what is overlooked, and what has worked In my experience.
- Mix vinegar in very hot water and pour over carpet and let it sit for a few minutes. The trick however in removing the stain is using a super absorbent sponge that can suck out all the water from your carpet or rug completely. As the water gets sucked out, it takes the stain along with it.
- If you have stains on the wall from pet overspray then a hot cloth can be used to wipe the stain first, afterwards you can use a Mr Earser pad to very carefully wipe the stain off. Be carefull not to scrub too hard as it may remove paint as well.
- Do you have a hard time removing pet hair from your furniture and upholstery? The best tool I have found is a motorized pet tool that spins to create static that pulls the hair off your furniture and then a powerful vacuum sucks that hair out of the tool as it clean. It is important to make sure you have a vacuum that does not lose suction otherwise the overall effectiveness is dramatically reduced. At Clean 4U services we use such specialized equipment to remove pet hair efficiently.
