Professionals always have secrets and shortcuts that civilians don’t know. Cleaning services are no exception. They know how to get the cleaning done well, quickly, and leave everything looking and smelling amazing. Wouldn’t you like to know some of those secrets to make your cleaning chores a little easier? In this article, we’ve included some of those secrets from a maid service in Charlotte – The Organic Maids.
Below are six tips that cleaning services would much rather keep a secret.
Dryer sheets as dusters. Because dryer sheets are designed to reduce static cling, they also attract dust. These little sheets are great to use in hard-to-reach places, to dust blinds and electronics.
Vacuum in rows. Most of us vacuum a room with no genuine regard to the pattern, but vacuuming in straight rows not only leaves your napped carpets looking great, but it also makes sure you don’t miss any spots.
The electric scrub brush. For areas that you usually have to deep scrub, like bathtubs and grout on floors, an electric brush can save your hands from the scrubbing. Just spray cleaner on the area and then use the brush to buff away dirt and mold.
Use lemons. A popular citrus fruit, lemons are perfect cleaning companions without all the chemicals. A mug of water and lemon juice in the microwave for 3-5 minutes can loosen all that stuck-on food, and a spritz of lemon juice left to sit on your faucets for 10-15 minutes can make them look brand new.
Old Socks. An old (but clean) sock on a Swiffer handle can help clean those out-of-reach spots on windows. Spray cleaner on the window and then wipe. If you can’t reach a window area to spray, you can apply cleaner right to the sock.
Vacuum bags/chambers. Neglecting to empty or change the collection bag regularly on your vacuum can lead to unpleasant odors. For bagless vacuums, empty the collection chamber after each use.
