Weekly Household Chores - 3.8 out of 5 based on 13 votes

Most cleaning tasks need to be done at least once a week. You can't go two weeks or a month without doing certain jobs or you will lose control over your house.

cleaning 1

  1. Every carpeted room in your house should be vacuumed at least once a week if not more often. Regular vacuuming enhances the live of your carpet. Without weekly vacuuming, dirt and grit will build up in your carpets and behave like scissors, wearing down and cutting the carpet fibres. Use door mats and throw rugs at every entrance to your home to trap dirt and keep it from getting tracked around your house.
  2. Sweep and mop kitchen and bathroom floors. Dry mop, then damp mops hardwood floors.
  3. Dust all furniture. Use a damp rag and wipe down everything use furniture polish if necessary.
  4. Clean glass doors and mirrors, especially bathroom mirrors which are used the frequently.
  5. Empty waste paper bins in bedrooms and family rooms. Empty bathroom bin can. It makes the most sense to empty all of these into the kitchen trash can before it gets completely full and then take the whole bin bag outside.
  6. Change bed linens. Beds should be completely stripped down once a week and bed linens should be washed. If you don't have the time to wash all the comforters and blankets in one shot, rotate who's bedclothes get washed when, wash two one week and then the other two the following week. At the very least, pillow cases and sheets should be changed and washed once a week.
  7. Do ironing at one shot once a week. Don't make it such a chore, watch a movie or talk on the phone while you iron.
  8. While you're going around cleaning your home, don't forget to water those plants at least weakly as per guidance

If you can't manage to do these cleaning chores then Decent Cleaning will provide you professional service so you can focus on doing other important things!

Best way undertaken cleaning tasks - 3.8 out of 5 based on 10 votes
  • Always start at the top of the room and work your way down.House-Cleaning1
  • Always clean top to bottom. When you dust, start at the top and work down.
  • Take all your cleaning tools with you into each room to avoid unnecessary trips back and forth.
  • Unplug the phone and the turn off the T.V.
  • Eliminate clutter. An uncluttered home looks better than one that is dust-free but strewn with odds and ends.
  • Clean as you go! It takes a lot less time to remove new dirt than old, and to clean and put away stuff as you use it, than to clean and store the pile-up you can accumulate.
  • A house that smells fresh will give the impression of cleanliness. Leave baking soda on carpeting for the night to absorb musty odors, vacuum in the morning.
  • Keep a big astro-turf mat on the porch to cut down on tracked in dirt.
  • Keep a basket in the kitchen for the mail, newspaper, car keys to help with clutter.
  • Keep a hamper in every bathroom.
  • Make everyone in charge of making his or her own bed and picking up their stuff.

Decent cleaning- Cleaning home tips # part 1

decent 1

Ink spots on wallpaper

Use chlorine bleach to remove ink spots on washablewallpaper. Pat the spots with a cloth or a cotton swab dampened with bleach, then rinse with a cloth or sponge dipped in clear water. Test an inconspicuous spot first; the bleach may remove color.

Corners

To dust to the corners, slip an old sock over a yardstick and secure it with a rubber band.

Removing cobwebs

Cobwebs can be sticky and can stain surfaces if you don’t remove them carefully. Use a vacuum cleaner tool or a cloth-covered broom, and lift them away from the wall rather than pushing them onto the surface.

Preventing vacuum scratches

When vacuuming trim, plasterwork, or woodwork, protect them from scratches by attaching a bumper, a strip of foam rubber secured with a rubber band, to the head of your vacuum’s crevice attachment. Ask the cambridge cleaners to help.

10 Tips For Cleaning Wood Flooring

10 Tips For Cleaning Wood Flooring - 3.9 out of 5 based on 14 votes

1. Twice a week brush and sweep the floor - Using a fine brush or dust mop sweep the entire surface twice a week. Sand, grit and dirt can be hard to remove if allowed to accumulate over time. Brushing the floor at least twice a week will prevent the build up of dirt

(Tips from cleaners in Cambridge section)

supremo goldies

2. You may use a vacuum cleaner - But.... if using a vacuum cleaner to collect dust use a soft attachment otherwise you can damage the floor by leaving tiny marks and scratches.

3. Use a damp mop - Water can damage the wood so never-ever soak the floor in water as if it was laminate or stone. Use a damp mop using warm water. All wood flooring products will react well to this process even if the floor’s manufacturer is recommending further steps.

4. Add wood flooring cleaner to the mix - Once a month we recommend that you add a dedicated wood flooring solution to warm water. These solutions are specifically formulated for water resistant floors and are PH natural.

5. Think twice before using vinegar - It is true that vinegar can be used to clean wood flooring, however you should follow best practices and manufacturer recommendations if you are unsure how your precise floor will react to the vinegar.

6. Quickly clean spills, stains and foot tracks - The longer these are allowed to be left on the surface, the harder you will find it to remove them.

7. Avoid pressure stains - Heavy objects that come into contact with the floor leave these marks. The most common are TV stands, tables and chairs. You should place furniture pads or an area rug underneath each item.

8. Install floor mats - When placed at the various entrances to the room, welcome mats are fantastic for collecting dirt and sand thereby making sweeping the floor easier.

9. Consider leaving shoes at the door - Shoes can track dirt and sand onto the floor and when you walk on the floor that dirt acts like sandpaper. Of course this tip is less feasible in commercial properties.

10. Use professionals - From time to time consider using a professional cleaning service. Their level of expertise and use of dedicated cleaning procedures will achieve a more thorough result.

After cooking, always wipe down grates and burner caps with a damp sponge and dry thoroughly. Normal cleaning can be done with hot, soapy water and or Soft
Scrub cleanser (without bleach) with a blue Scotch-Brite pad. If stubborn spots still occur, then use Oven Mate Cleaner.
Procedure for oven cleaner use: Take grates and burner caps off unit – move outside and place on newspaper. Spray with Easy-Off, let cleaner sit on spotted areas for 1 – 2 hours(Tips from cleaners in Cambridge). Clean off with hot, soapy water. When cleaning grates and burner caps, make sure to thoroughly dry them, especially
underneath. If the bottom portion does not totally dry before setting them back on the cooking surface, they may rust. You can also set the grates and burner caps
on top of the burner and turn the burner on high for ten to fifteen seconds for extra drying. To prevent rusting and discoloration, do not submerge grates in water to soak for any length of time or run them through the dishwasher. If rust does occur, Bar Keeper’s Friend and a blue Scotch-Brite pad will
remove it. To condition grates and burner caps, apply a light coating of mineral oil or vegetable oil. Allow oil to soak in 15 minutes before returning grates or burner caps to cooking surface.

cleaning tips

Burner Bases

The base should be wiped regularly with hot soapy water at the end of each cooling period. DO NOT use steel wool, abrasive cloths, cleanser, or powders. To remove encrusted materials, soak the area with a hot towel to loosen the material, then use a wooden nylon spatula. DO NOT use a metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool to scrape the aluminum base.
