Maids know the ins and outs of dirt and dust, grease stains, grime and more. When you find an area of your home that is tough to clean, your first instinct may be to ignore it and hope it goes away. However, by following some of these simple tips from maids, you can make deep house cleaning in Dayton a breeze.
Removing Dust and Pet Hair
There are some surfaces that dust and pet hair seem to cling to in the home. However, using the right material for wiping while deep house cleaning in Dayton can help you get the clean surface you desire. For most surfaces, microfiber cloths are the optimal tool. There are some exceptions to this rule. To clean pet hair off of upholstered furniture, it is best to use a damp pet sponge. This also works on pillows. When cleaning dirt from acoustical tiles, the best tool is usually a dry sponge. Finally, when cleaning blinds and mini-blinds you may find it easier to wear cotton gloves and clean them by hand.
Cleaning Top to Bottom
When performing deep house cleaning in Dayton, it is crucial to work from top to bottom. This prevents the tracking of dirt and debris into areas that have already been cleaned. When doing this, be sure to dust first and make vacuuming, sweeping, and mopping the last things on your to-do list. When vacuuming, start at the farthest inside point of a room and work your way toward the door so you don’t back yourself into a corner.
Cleaning Mirrors and Windows
Are you tired of products that promise a streak-free shine and then fail to deliver? Have home remedies, such as using newspaper to clean, failed you? If so, consider this tip from the pros. Use a dry microfiber cloth to clean both mirrors and windows. Use horizontal strokes across the top, and then use vertical strokes down the length of the window or mirror. If you have stubborn spots, dampen a corner and repeat the process again.
Cleaning Pet Stains
One of the most frequently asked questions of maids who perform deep house cleaning in Dayton is how they remove pet stains. Pet stains, whether fresh or old, can be difficult or seemingly impossible to remove. To remove a pet stain, you will need absorbent towels or rags, some vinegar, water, plastic wrap, and a bacteria/enzyme digester.
Begin by blotting any liquid. Place a towel or rag over the wet area and step on them with gentle, and then firm pressure. Use as many towels as you need until no more liquid is coming up when you press on the towel. Then apply a bacteria/enzyme digester designed to treat the stain and the odor. Follow the directions on the bottle. After application of the solution, put plastic wrap over the area to ensure the digester remains wet and effective until it is ready to be moved. In some instances, you will need to mix one cup of vinegar with a gallon of warm water to rinse the area, especially if it is a high area for pet stains. Then, apply another batch of the bacteria/enzyme solution and repeat the process.
