Maintaining the look and feel of a house requires regular cleaning. There are many areas of a home to consider when cleaning a house. Every house has windows, and dirty windows can make the entire house look and feel dingy. Modern windows allow for easier cleaning as they tilt in so you can clean the inside and outside without leaving the room. Older windows require more maneuvering and are often difficult on higher floors. Specialty window-washing sprayers are available for higher windows.
Floor cleaning is another aspect of every home requiring cleaning. Carpets, hardwood, laminate, tile, linoleum, etc. Each type of flooring has a sub-series of tools, accessories, and products designed to care for that specific material. Vacuuming can be done on any floor type, and both electric and manual versions of mops and cleaners are available for hard floors. Various cleaning solutions allow you to clean the type of floor you have without damage, and some even help preserve the look and quality, or even revitalize it. Steam mops can be very useful for a variety of floor types. They provide sanitizing properties and effective cleaning without chemicals, perfect for homes with small children or pets. For those with allergies to chemical fragrances commonly found in cleaning solutions, steamers are also ideal. Bathrooms are often considered dirty and require frequent cleaning. Showers quickly build up with soap scum, hard water deposits, and even mold in some conditions. Luckily, there are products which tackle all of the tough shower obstacles, making it easier to clean.
For toilets, there are toilet cleaners which also aid in mineral deposits, hard water stains, and sanitizing. For sinks and counters, you can use spray cleaners or pre-moistened wipes Some areas of the home require less frequent cleaning. One is walls and baseboards. When it’s time to clean these, a diluted solution of cleaner with a rag is usually all that’s needed to wipe away stains, marks, and to get rid of dust on baseboards. Furniture shouldn’t be ignored when considering cleaning a house. Upholstered furniture can be vacuumed using vacuum attachments. Steam cleaning and upholstery cleaners are also useful for stained or heavily soiled furniture. Polishes and wood cleaners can be used for wood furniture to bring new life and shine to them. Some products even help prevent dust from sticking to the surface.
When dusting surfaces in the home, it’s often useful to use special dusting products on the market. These products are designed to trap those tiny dust particles and keep them from simply spreading around. A quick swipe over surfaces gets rid of dust. These can also be used on decorative items, blinds, window sills, electronics, and framed art or photos. Any surface which you don’t want chemicals or water to touch, but needs to be dusted, benefits from dusting wands or cloths. With all of the products available for cleaning, you can cut the time down in all areas of a home. Find what works for you and you’re set.
