Maid Service Direct Offers Five House Cleaning Tips for Homeowners

Maid Service Direct, a home cleaning company based in Philadelphia, PA, has provided five house cleaning tips for homeowners in a recent blog post. The article is designed to help homeowners, especially those who have recently bought a house, who find that cleaning the whole house is a formidable task and are often confused where to start.

Elaine Davison, a representative for the home cleaning company, says, “If you’re a new homeowner, just did home construction, or don’t really like cleaning, this new blog post is for you. It may seem that house cleaning is a difficult task, especially when you have an entire house to clean. But not to worry because these tips provided in our blog post will help you out and let you know what you should be cleaning. Hint: you may also need a home cleaning service.”

Home Cleaning

The first tip is to dust the ceiling fans. This is important because these fans are often neglected because they are high up in the ceiling. Nevertheless, they tend to gather a lot of dust, just like other fans and even more so. They tend to collect a lot of dust and what is worse is that once they are turned on, they can send out the dust to other parts of the room. Thus, even if the entire room has been thoroughly cleaned, once the ceiling fan is turned on, the dust on the fan blades will be thrown into the air and the room once again becomes dusty, including the various furniture. A great way to clean the ceiling fan is to avoid using the duster and instead use an old pillowcase and put this over the fan blade and then drag all the dust inside it.

The second tip is to clean the hardwood floors. This can be done through a number of steps. First is to wipe the dust or dirt. Next is to spray some vinegar cleaning solution on the floor as this is a great way to clean hardwood without tearing off the top coating. Finally, a mop is used to spread the solution and this will make the hardwood shine.

The third tip is the get rid of the stinky smell from the dishwasher. While it would be sufficient to simply pick food out of the dishwasher on a daily basis, every few months a deep clean must be provided for the dishwasher. Once it starts to smell, it’s time perform a deep clean. This is done by sprinkling a cup baking soda on the bottom rack and running the empty dishwasher using its hottest setting.

The fourth tip is to scrub the toilets. Homeowners just need to make sure that they use cleaning gloves. They can do this by using a toilet bowl cleaner and applying it for 5 to 10 minutes. Next is to use a toilet brush to scrub the bowl. They should allow it to sit for another five minutes and then flush the toilet. Finally, they can wipe down the other parts of the toilet with a disinfecting wipe.

The fifth and final tip is to get the services of a home cleaning service. With this service, a maid will go to the home and perform the cleaning tasks, according to the homeowner’s preferences.
