Always Do This When Cleaning

Taking care of cleaning chores around the house is something homeowners have engaged in since houses were invented. Not much thought goes into it other than it just needs to be done.

However, some specialized tasks, such as removing a spot from a carpet, getting rid of an irritating pet odor from the family dog, or trying to find the best cleaning solution for the toughest jobs can actually end up causing more harm than good.

The Often-Forgotten Vacuum Bag

Vacuum cleaners are an integral part of life for any family and a common tool used daily in commercial buildings.

While the vacuum hums along doing its job, picking up dirt, grit, debris, and potential contaminants, there is a part of the vacuum we might not think about that often.

You usually can’t see it… but it’s right there, inside your vacuum cleaner — the bag.

Should You Wash Cushion Covers?

It’s a very easy thing to do… you notice your sofa cushions are a little dingy, which is perfectly normal with kids, pets, and normal usage.

So you decide to do it yourself and wash the cushion covers. They come out looking nice. But you also notice a little problem. The colors aren’t as bright as they used to be, and it takes a lot of effort to get the covers back over the foam cushions themselves. In fact, for one cushion, you can’t even get it zipped up all the way.

Organizing & Cleaning the Bathrooms

Besides the kitchen, your bathroom is one of the most popular and trafficked rooms in your home.

Keeping your bathroom organized, clean, and tidy can be a daunting chore. And your work increases tremendously if you have more than one. Many homes have several bathrooms. That’s a lot of cleaning and organizing to tackle, especially if you let too much time pass without giving them some attention. It’s easy to see several days, a week, even more pass without close scrutiny of the condition of a bathroom—and then all of a sudden you are amazed how all the nastiness snuck up on you.

Vacuum Cleaner Maintenance

The job of the vacuum cleaner, whether in a home or office, is to pick up dirt, debris, particulate soil, hair, dander, virtually anything that lands on the carpet and must be removed. In the process, your vacuum cleaner eventually ends up needing a little cleaning attention itself.

When you empty the vacuum collection chamber or replace the vacuum bag, all of that dust, dirt, debris, and hair went into the port that contains the beater bar, and then through a hose, and most likely also through a filter or two.

The Battle Against Garbage Can Odors

There’s nothing too exciting about garbage cans, except how you feel if you pull a full trash bag out and it bursts and spews all kinds of undesirables all over the kitchen floor.

If you have garbage, such as limp lettuce, fermenting flounder, greasy goat cheese, and much more, you will have odors from it.
Odors naturally occur from bacteria, which is what grows quickly on organic material. And then you have mold adding to the issue. All this fermenting in a dark, damp playground known as your garbage can.

The Nooks and Crannies

Your home has plenty of areas for dirt and grime to hide. Locating them may seem easy. Cleaning them effectively is something else.

Most homeowners spend plenty of time sweeping, vacuuming, scrubbing, and cleaning areas that are obviously soiled and become soiled daily. There are areas that can really get gross in a short amount of time.

How Much Is Carpet Cleaning?

If you have carpet in your home, you know it’s next to impossible to keep it looking brand new. Normal life simply doesn’t allow for pristine carpet! Whether it’s dirty shoes tracking in mud from the yard, pets that aren’t quite potty-trained, kids leaving markers on the floor, or regular wear and tear over time, carpet can quickly become stained or dingy looking, leaving your home looking less than its best. For those who choose to go the DIY stain removal route, there are plenty of commercially available carpet cleaning products as well as carpet steam cleaners you can rent, but professional carpet cleaners have both the expertise and the professional equipment to tackle deeper stains and bigger jobs. Hiring a professional is the best way to get your carpet restored to its former glory, but how much does carpet cleaning cost? The answer to that question isn’t as simple as you may think, as the size of a room, which carpet cleaning method is used, and add-ons like spot treatments all have an impact on the total price — but it actually may be far more affordable than you think. Here we’ll examine the various pricing structures typically used by carpet cleaning professionals, along with the different carpet cleaning methods and their applications, and how to get the best bang for your buck.
