Cleaning. Everyone goes about it differently. And if you think about it, it makes sense. Everyone’s home is different after all, right? But professional house cleaners, recommend one important addition to your house cleaning regimen: making a house cleaning checklist. Here are some simple steps to complete that.
Make a list of all the rooms in your home. This seems simple, but is a very easily overlooked step. If you live in a studio apartment, your checklist will look very different than someone living in a four-bedroom home!
Inventory the items in each room that needs to be cleaned. Don’t forget anything. Some things are obvious, like floors, countertops, toilets, and tubs. But others are not (windowsills, rugs, the top of the fridge). Include everything!
Decide how frequently each task needs to be performed. Some good categories include: daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly.
That’s it! Every house cleaning checklist will be different, but that’s part of the fun. And be aware that your list may grow over time. You’re bound to forget one or two of those quarterly or yearly tasks. Don’t let that discourage you. Happy cleaning!
Saving time. Many of us work full time jobs. If you have children, you then want to spend time with them when you are off of work, not just cleaning. Additionally, leaving the cleaning to someone else allows you to have guests over without worrying about the state of your home.
Better mental health. Recent studies have proven that clutter can add to depression and anxiety. With the amount of things going on in the average life, it is easy to allow cleaning to fall to the bottom of the to do list. But that just adds to stress. Why suffer?
Best left to the professionals. Everyone knows the basics of cleaning, but are you truly doing everything right? Professionals are trained what products to use and how to get the cleanest clean-every time.
We’ve all done it, knocked a wine glass over on a white rug or light carpet. After you let out your wail of frustration from wasting wine, try to prevent wine stains on your carpet by following my simple insutrctions!
Blot it up! My husband has the worst habit of ‘wiping’ up stains, just grinding the liquid further into the carpet. Instead, immediately start to blot from the outside in to contain the stain and minimize any staining as much as possible.
When no more wine is coming out onto your paper towel or rag, add some water! Not only will this dilute the wine to lighten the color but it will help bring the wine that is deep into the carpet fibers back up to the surface.
If there is still wine, put some salt on the spot to draw out the moisture. You should do this right after blotting as if the stain is dry there will be no moisture to pull up! When you can’t get rid of the stains from your carpet, consider calling professional carpet cleaning service like Near Me Carpet Cleaning Services Chicago, IL. Alternatively, you can try a baking soda solution made up of 1 part baking soda to 3 parts water. Cover with a cloth and put something heavy on top of the cloth to drive the baking soda into the carpet fibers. Vacuum the area up the next day and voila! The stain should be lifted.
