House Cleaning Questions
 
 
  1. 1. How can I spend less time cleaning?


    Did you know that 80% of cleaning time is spent just putting things away and straightening?  Spend one day straightening and the next day cleaning.  Or, straighten one day, dust and vacuum the next, and do bathrooms the day after.
     

  2. 2. How can I clean dirty walls?


    Regular cleaning is the best way to keep walls looking good.  If your walls are painted with flat paint, use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to get up stubborn stains.  One of the best ways to keep your walls looking good is to make them “cleanable.”  Few flat paints are cleanable, so don’t waste your time with flat paint.  Consider painting as many of your walls as possible with cleanable paint and regularly wipe them down.

     3. Do I dust or vacuum first?  

    Always, always dust first.  When you dust, you knock crumbs off furniture onto the floor.  Vacuuming will pick this up if you dust first.   


    4. How can I keep my carpets cleaner?  

    It’s easy – don’t wear shoes on carpeting.  Leave shoes at the doors and try to avoid eating and drinking in carpeted areas.  If you do eat in these areas, get an area rug with a pattern that can take the spills and not show the stains.


    5. Should I use more than the recommended amounts of cleaners?  

    That’s a mistake to think that more is, well, more.  In reality, you should use less.  I usually recommend using half of the recommended amounts that manufacturers suggest because these are at the higher end of effectiveness – which makes you use more product and buy more. 


    6.How I do clean Cleaning Ceramic Tiles? 

    When floor cleaning ceramic tile floors, use a simple solution of soap and water. The trick is to use a rubber scraper - the kind they use at gas stations to clean the windows on your car.

    You can also find specialty cleaning products that whiten grout and tiles to give your bathroom that sparkling shine. 


    7.
    How can I remove stains from my cement floor? 

    For a safe, chemical-free way to clean your cement floor, scrub it with baking soda. Use a scrub brush and hot water. For stubborn stains, make a paste with baking soda and water and allow it to sit on the stains for a few hours. Once you have the stains removed, you may want to seal the concrete to prevent future staining. 


    8. How can I remove a yellow bleach stain from my countertop?

    To remove a yellow bleach stain from your countertop, you can try making a paste of baking soda and water. Let it sit for half an hour, then scrub the area with a damp nylon sponge. Unfortunately, you may be stuck with the stain since once something is bleached, the chemical reaction is not reversible.
