Professional House Cleaning Tips

Save

A clean house allows you to entertain guests without being embarrassed by the condition of your home, and it helps to keep you and your family healthy by eliminating bacteria and other pollutants. Add some professional house cleaning tips to your cleaning routine, so that you can get a deep clean in your home.

Shower Curtain

  • Mold and mildew can collect on a shower curtain, creating a health issue. According to Mrs. Clean USA, you can reduce the amount of mold and mildew collected in your shower by maintaining your plastic shower curtain. When you first get your plastic shower curtain, remove the plastic hem at the bottom by cutting if off with scissors. The hem serves no purpose, and it can collect mold that you may not immediately see. Use a white vinegar spray on your plastic shower curtain once a week to reduce the mold buildup.

Window Cleaning

  • The house-cleaning professionals at Merry Maids suggest using the proper equipment to clean your windows. Apply an ammonia-based window-cleaning solution with a window cleaning wand, and then remove it with a professional grade squeegee. Avoid cleaning your windows when they have direct sunlight beating down on them as the sunlight may dry the cleaning solution and leave streaks.

Laundry

  • Good Housekeeping suggests using labeled laundry baskets to help keep clothes separated. Set out baskets labeled "darks," "linens" and "whites" to get your family into the habit of separating laundry before putting it into the wash.

Toilet Bowl Rings

  • If you let a toilet bowl ring go for a while, it becomes difficult to remove. The professionals at Merry Maids have several solutions for removing a toilet bowl ring no matter how long it has been sitting. Start with a professional acid-based toilet bowl cleaner and a cleaning wand. If that does not remove the ring, then move to an abrasive cleaning wand with a green pad on the end. If the ring is still evident, clean it with a pumice stone to finish the job. Keep the pumice stone wet, and do not use a pumice stone on colored toilet bowls; only use it on white bowls. For bowls that are not while, repeated use of the green scouring pad should remove the stain over time.
