5 House Cleaning Tips to Make Your Life So Much Easier

August 31, 2016

House cleaning is a lot of work and it can be incredibly frustrating to see all that hard work go to waste when the house just keeps getting dirty again. Busy families, pets, and general life causes dirt to build up in our homes, on our carpets, and every book shelf in our home. The good news is there are ways to combat the dirt and help to keep your home cleaner for a longer period of time.  house_cleaning_2016.jpg

Start with the Pros

The best advice to get a cleaner house for longer is to start with a professional deep cleaning. Our ServiceMaster Quality Services team have the experience and the equipment to get your home deep down clean, removing contaminants, stains, and bad odors to bring your home back to like-new condition.

Create the Right Atmosphere

Believe it or not, the humidity level in your home has a lot to do with how much dust sticks around. Low levels of humidity generate static electricity. This static will attract more dust that sticks to everything. If the humidity in your home is too high, it can cause the growth of dust mites. These mites can trigger allergic reactions and also contribute significantly to the dust problem. Humidity levels should be maintained between 40 and 50 percent.

Oven Hack

Oven cleaners often contain dangerous fumes and chemicals that can burn your skin. If you don’t have a self-cleaning oven, swap out the messy cleaners for a pumice stone, used for pedicures. A wet stone will remove the stuck on oven mess safely. Vacuum up the dried particles and wipe down with a clean sponge and hot water.

Shoes Off Policy

Most of the dirt in your home gets tracked in by shoes. Offer a convenient place at the door for family members and guests to remove shoes before they walk through the house. Keep a high quality doormat outside all entry doors to your home so shoes can be cleaned off before entering.

Create an Emergency Bucket

Store all the things you need in one convenient bucket to quickly handle any cleaning emergency. Stock up on clean rags, microfiber cloths, stain removers, and your other favorite cleaning supplies so you can grab and go. Spills can be absorbed quickly and it’s best to tackle cleaning emergencies as fast as possible to protect your floors, carpet, and upholstery.
