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 Take everything out, get rid of any out-of-date or spoiled foods.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.
