How Often Should You Clean Things?

house cleaning ViennaSome cleaning jobs are obvious. We at house cleaning Vienna hope that you wash dishes after you use them, for example! Others aren’t quite so straight-forward.

Here’s the house cleaning guide to what to clean and when.

Duvets. Your duvet should be laundered every six months. You might need to do this through a specialist service, depending on the size of the duvet.

Pillows. Naturally filled pillows should be aired outside regularly during the summer months – every few weeks. Wash them every three months, but remember they need two-three days to dry properly.

Foam-filled pillows. Sponge in warm, soapy water every six months.

Hollowfibre/polyester pillows. These can be washed in the washing machine. Do this every six months. Pillowcases should be washed at least every two weeks.

Your fridge. Ideally, the fridge should be cleaned every month. Take everything out, get rid of any out-of-date or spoiled foods. Wipe over the surfaces with a dilute solution of washing liquid, wash the shelves and containers. Dry everything carefully.

House Cleaning Vienna – Professional Services

Upholstered furniture. Furniture should be cleaned every six to 12 months. Choose the right products and carry out a test before use to check. You can also choose to have the furniture cleaned professionally.

Carpets. Have your carpets cleaned every six months, more often if you have pets or children with a sense of adventure! Budget Maids offers professional carpet cleaning services using a dry cleaning service that minimizes down time.

Washing machines. Yes, even washing machines get dirty. Clean yours every six months. If it’s a front-loading machine, the rubber seal picks up lint, hair and dirt. Spray it with white cleaning vinegar, and wipe with a microfiber cloth. Set the washer to its hottest setting. Add two cups of white vinegar to the detergent dispenser. Run the washing machine through a complete cycle.

Mattress. Clean the mattress every six months to keep bed bugs at bay. It’s not a hard job, we promise! Vacuum the surface, then remove stains using a light solution of upholstery cleaner, a sponge and water. Don’t soak the mattress as this will cause mildew. Leave the mattress to dry out thoroughly before sleeping on it. We recommend turning the mattress every six months too.

Maid Service Reston: We Love Cleaning!

maid service RestonIf you use maid service Reston, you’ll know we LOVE cleaning. Our fondness for cleanliness isn’t limited to Valentine’s Day, but if you’ve ever wondered why we’re so fond of cleaning, here are the reasons why…

We derive satisfaction from cleaning. When you clean someone’s home from them, you get clear, tangible results. There is nothing more satisfying than taking a place from messy to spick and span.

We like performing a useful service. Everyone lives busy lives in the modern world. If you work and you have a family, you don’t want to spend huge amounts of time cleaning your home. That’s where we come in. We will tidy up for you, leaving you free to do the things that really matter.

We love the environment. That’s why we use environmentally-friendly cleaning products. We want our world to be here for a long time once we’re gone!

Maid Service Reston – Minimizing Dust and Allergic Reactions

We like improving our customers’ health. With allergies on the increase, one way we can help is by keeping your house clean and tidy. If you minimize the dust and steam-clean carpets, this can help reduce allergic reactions to dust mites.

We love pets. Budget-Maids are animal lovers. This is one of the other reasons why we use environmentally-friendly cleaning products. We’re also used to working around animals so your beloved pooch or moggie will be safe with us.

We love the jobs you hate. There are plenty of cleaning jobs everyone loathes, right? Cleaning the cooker, for example, is one job most people avoid. Clearing the drain hole is another. Are you ensuring you give your fridge a thorough clean on a regular basis? Budget-Maids expert teams will do these jobs with joy.

We like being trustworthy. Many of our clients are happy to let us have keys to their homes so we can let ourselves in and out with minimal interruption to our clients’ routine. When you’re trustworthy, more people are likely to employ you. It’s a win-win situation!

There you go – all the reasons for our adoration of the duster, mop, vacuum cleaner et al!
