Cleaning Service Reston: Big Bathroom Ewws…

cleaning service Reston

What germs lurk here?!

You know what we at cleaning service Reston mean by ewws… these are the bathroom no-no’s everyone is guilty of from time to time.

Our business is cleaning, and there is not much we don’t know about how to make a place spick and span. But some jobs and items in our homes can be overlooked. We’re all busy people and remembering when and what we have cleaned isn’t always easy.

There are some of the top bathroom issues that can be neglected…

The Bathmat

What do you do with your bathmat? You step on it when it’s wet, as do the other people in the household. Do you think it gets dried in between? Bathmats can quickly build up mold and mildew because of this, so they need to be washed regularly – at least once a fortnight. Make sure the mat is dried properly afterwards too. It’s helpful if you can hang up your mat to dry off thoroughly in between uses.

Cleaning Service Reston – the Dreaded Toilet Brush

The Toilet Brush

Ah, the toilet brush – a hardworking implement in most bathrooms. As you might guess, toilet brushes store lots of eww-type things: bacteria, dirt and fecal matter. Most people tend to use them and then put them straight back in the holder. If possible, after every use place the brush in a bucket filled with hot water and a strong cleaning solution such as bleach. Leave to soak for an hour or so and then remove and rinse well. Remember to clean the brush holder at the same time, as we cleaning service Reston experts always do. There is no point shoving it back in a dirty container.

The Toilet Flush

No doubt you clean your toilet well, but the flush handle is often neglected. And how is the flusher used? Well, everyone touches this with their unwashed hands after going to the toilet, don’t they? It’s easy to see why it needs to be cleaned regularly. Use antibacterial wipes to clean thoroughly every time you give the toilet bowl a rinse.

The Hairbrush

It’s not only hairs that stick to a hairbrush – it’s dust, dirt, oils, hair products, skin cells and dust mites. You should pull excess hair out of your brush every time you use it and shampoo your brush at least once a month. Wash it in warm water with a small amount of shampoo in it and use a clean toothbrush to scrub at the bottom of the bristles to get rid of trapped hair and dirt. Dry bristle-side down on a clean towel overnight.

Cleaning Service Falls Church: Spring Clean Bedrooms

cleaning service Falls ChurchHere at Cleaning Service Falls Church, Spring makes us joyful. The weather brightens, we can all get out and about again, and we start to feel more energetic.

Cleaning services Falls Church doesn’t need too much of an excuse to want to do some spring cleaning, but let’s have a look at one room in particular: the bedroom. Why not start small with your spring cleaning, one room at a time? Going to bed at night in a fresh, clean room will help you relax, and getting that room tip-top is hugely satisfying.

Windows

Start with the windows. Get outside and clean them externally, as well as internally. It’s best to do this on a cloudy day, so the sun doesn’t dry out the cleaning agent before you’ve wiped it off. Vinegar and newspapers is an old housewife’s tale for sparkling clean windows, and it works.

Closet, Wardrobe and Drawers

Okay, if ever there was an incentive to de-clutter it is Spring. Why not use your bedroom spring clean as an opportunity to get rid of clothing, shoes and accessories you don’t want? Sort them into charity and chuck piles, the latter for anything that actually is falling apart. Or why not try a Swish party? That’s where you invite your girlfriends to the house, everyone brings their unwanted clothes and you swap. It’s like shopping, but guilt-free.

Clean Curtains and Blinds

You can use your vacuum cleaner to clean the curtains, using the nozzle attachment. You might also be able to put curtains in the washing machine. Buy specialist dusters for blinds as they can be fiddly.

Professionally Clean Carpets and Rugs

Professional carpet cleaning services just like the ones we provide at Cleaning Service Falls Church will make your carpets look brand new. They also help if you have pets as they can get rid of the build-up of fur and the nasty little critters that like to pounce on your pooch and hide in your home…

Dust and Polish

Dust builds up quickly in bedrooms, thanks to skin cells, hairs and make-up (if you do your face in your boudoir). Why not do the dusting and polishing job properly, by removing everything from wooden surfaces? It’ll be worth it.
