The cleaners who came last week were wonderful. They were extremely professional cleaners and did a great job. Things were crazy here since we had just returned from the hospital after my husband injured himself. They were very patient with our crazy situation. It has been a complicated couple of weeks.

Thanks,

Odors rise with the temperature. Odors intensify in the warm summer months, garbage or fragrant flowers blooming in a garden can be easy notice on warm days.

A deep house cleaning can help to avoid the bad smell to stick to the walls, sofa and furniture.

The combination of heat plus humidity allows bacteria to grow  and smells travel farther, said Victoria Henshaw, who researches urban smells throughout the world.

“The air becomes a smelly soup that we all breathe in,” Henshaw said.

It’s the worst heat wave of the summer season and people across the US are working hard to stay cool. NBC’s Melissa Mollet reports.

Unfortunately, rotten aromas trump pleasant scents when it’s hot, allowing the odor of pollution to travel further and overpower fruity smells or freshly cut grass.

Humid air traps smells and causes them to linger longer than they usually would, said Avert Gilbert, a smell psychologist. He said it’s not just an intensification of already-present odors like urine and garbage that makes summer’s stinkier.

“Stores open up, restaurants open their doors,” he said, “There’s just more smells pouring into the streets than on a brisk fall day or a cold winter.”

That means when the fish market owner dumps the ice into the drain, it’s going to fill the air more in the summer than on a cooler, fall day.

Certain smells can fill a room, like cinnamon or popcorn.

“If someone’s mulling wine in your kitchen, it will fill the whole house,” Gilbert said. “If you walk by a movie theater, the smell of popcorn surrounds you.”

Henshaw takes people on smell walks all across the world, where she said people are more willing to smell things they would normally turn their noses up to.

“With great gusto, people will go up and sniff the trash,” she said.

Human’s sense of smell evolves over their lifetimes. In fact, as babies, humans gravitate toward the smell of feces because it is something they are familiar with, Henshaw said. It isn’t until babies get older that they realize it’s not a good smell, she said.

Since smell is part of our olfactory senses, many people associate certain smells with people or areas. Henshaw said humans have the ability to remember a smell for more than 60 years.

“Our mind just takes us back to that space and time,” she said. “That’s why smell has such an association with certain cities.”

“It smells like a petting zoo carefully adorned with hot, wet garbage and the subtle hint of pee pee,” said New Yorker Stefania Orru of the city’s intense summer smells.

The city’s smells aren’t going anywhere soon, so Henshaw said she recommends embracing the smells and getting used to them. That, or buying a scented handkerchief drenched with your favorite perfume.

For several years we are helping many families with our cleaning services. As a mother of two kids I know exactly how hard is to keep a tidy house, taking care the kids, cooking and sometimes moms do not have time to do a deep house cleaning.   So, that’s why I am doing so well in this business and all my customers are so happy because we understand all the housecleaning needs.

I have selected these 10 easy to use springs cleaning tip to help you make your house keeping workload not felt at all.

Are the walls dirty with dust or mildew?

01- Tips for cleaning walls:

For cleaning interior walls we would need Wall cleaner that you can make it at home, using 1/2 c. ammonia, 1/4 c. white vinegar, and 1/4 c. baking soda to 1 gal. warm water. For textured walls use nylon socks instead of sponge to avoid leaving material behind. You can tie a dust cloth over your mop or broom and work from the top down, to dust wallpaper. If you have naughty kids, who have filled non-washable papers with pencil marks and drawings with other non-greasy spots, use an art-gum eraser t remove that. You can also remove remove greasy spots or crayon by applying a paste of cleaning fluid and fuller’s earth and cornstarch. Let the wall dry and brush off residue. Repeat the treatment until the spot is gone.

02- For exterior walls Use a water hose to spray the outside of your house. This will remove siding cobwebs and dirt.

If you have textured siding, attach a car-washing brush to the hose to remove dirt.

03- Tips to Clean Windows:

You can make your own spray cleaner. Its easy. Fill a spray bottle with 3 tablespoons ammonia, 1 tablespoon vinegar & the remainder with water. After that Dust blinds by wrapping a cloth around a ruler. Spray cloth with a dusting spray and run the flat end across each blind. After that shine the windows using an old newspaper. To avoid streaks, clean windows on an average temperature, preferably on a cloudy day. Dry windows outside in one direction then inside in the other direction so that If you see a streak, you will know which side is the mistake. To clean window sills, pour diluted rubbing alcohol on a cloth and rub the entire surface. Then dust off the sill with a clean cloth.

04- Tips to clean Bathroom:

If the bathroom mirror is not clean, to remove the dull haze, rub alcohol on the surface. Rubbing alcohol can remove the dull haze from mirrors. Rubbing alcohols also removes spots from bathroom fixtures. But for having a sparkling Glass shower doors, clean it with white vinegar. If the shower is dirty then use a solution of 1/2 cup vinegar, 1 cup ammonia, and 1/4 cup baking soda added to one gallon of warm water to clean it.

05- Water spots on metal frames are a great pain in the bathroom. To clean those use the Lemon furniture oil.

Rusty tile marks can be removed with kerosene. Running the shower on hot for five minutes will steam the dirt loose. To clean Grout Wash with 2 tablespoons chlorine bleach in one quart of water. Dry thoroughly, and then apply Several coats of lemon oil. Let dry one hour between coats. Dull walls will shine when washed with vinegar and water and polished with a dry cloth. Lighter fluid will remove most stains from porcelain sinks and bathtubs.

06- How to keep your kitchen clean:

Remove stubborn water spots from a stainless sink with a cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol. These spots can be removed with vinegar. If the stainless steel is rusty then rub stainless steel sinks with lighter fluid. For a sparkling white porcelain sink, place paper towels across the bottom of your sink and saturate with house hold bleach. Let it rinse for 8 hour. Be careful and donot use bleach in colored sinks.

To fight with refrigerator odor keep an open box of baking soda. It will absorb odors for a month or so. Can also use a few drops vanilla extract on a piece of cotton placed in the refrigerator. This will eliminate odors.

Wipe refrigerator with vinegar to prevent mildew and Use your vacuum on the front of the coils and motor to remove dust and dirt from the refrigerator.

07- Appliances Care:

Yellowing of white appliances is a perennial problem. To stop that mix 1/2 cup bleach, 1/4 cup baking soda and 4 cups of warm water. Apply with a sponge & keep for 10 minutes. After that rinse & dry thoroughly. You can also use car wax to wax large appliances and make them shine. You can also use it to remove small scratches as well.

08- Wood Floors:

You can make your own floor cleaner. It is very easy to make. Make a solution of 1/2 cup of white vinegar in 1 gallon of warm water. Damp mop with a mop squeezed nearly dry. It is safer to mist the mop with the cleaner than to apply to floor. Do a section at a time and throw an old towel on the floor and scoot back and forth with foot to dry and prevent streaks. Standing liquid from mopping, spills, and pet accidents can damage floors.

The greatest damage done to wood floors is from grit. Mats at doors are necessary to collect grit and it’s important to keep these clean. Frequent dust mopping in high traffic areas to collect grit is the best prevention. This should be done based on the amount of traffic, which may require dust mopping several times a day in an active household. The brush attachment of a vacuum can be used (no beater bars). Felt and furniture protectors should be installed on furniture. Never scoot furniture on wood. Put a piece of waxed paper under your dust mop. Dirt will stick to the mop and the wax will shine your floors.

09- Removing Stains

Stains are our greatest enemies and to fight them is even easier if you are prepared.

Water Stains: Rub the spot with No. 2 steel wood and rewax. For more serious water stains, lightly sand with fine

Sand paper, clean the spot with No. 1 or 00 steel wool and mineral spirits or floor cleaner then refinish and wax.

Cigarette Burns: If not severe, the burn can be removed by rubbing with steel wool moistened with soap and

water.

Heel and Caster Marks: Rub vigorously with fine steel wool and floor cleaner. Wipe dry and polish.

Ink Stains and Other Dark Spots: Use No. 2 steel wool and floor cleaner to clean the spot and surrounding area.

Thoroughly wash the affected area. If the spot remains, sand with fine sandpaper, re-wax and polish. Stubborn

stains may require that you replace the affected area.

Chewing Gum and Wax Deposits: Ice until the deposit is brittle and crumbles off. Pour floor cleaner around the

stain so the fluid soaks under and loosens it.

Alcohol Spots: Rub the spot with liquid or paste wax

10- Tips to keep Carpets Clean:

To clean dry spots, loosen soil and vacuum away prior to moistening it. When taking out stains, always use a white cloth. If you have dropped Wax on carpet or upholstery and want to clean it then set a clean, absorbent cloth over the wax stain and hold a hot iron on it. Then remove the cloth. Coat mildly greasy stains with aerosol shaving cream, use a hair dryer to speed dry. Then vacuum. Sprinkle a greasy stain with baking soda, cornstarch or talcum powder. Leave on at least 8 hours, and then vacuum. The works done.

Apply these simple and effective tips and have a happy spring!!

Invite your guests, develope a menu, agonize over activities. Now the guests will arrive at your home ready to be entertained. Depite all other preparation, none is more important than assuring that your guests of a comfortable, clean, place to be entertained in, your home. Take the time to make your home ready for guests. These  ideas for pre-party cleaning to help you get more out of your event can help you a little.

Here’s How:

1.Evaluate what needs to be done.
Writing down a quick list of rooms and places in your home that need attention will give you a plan. Don’t forget entry areas and coat closets.

2.Start with the most important rooms.
Sometimes it helps to begin cleaning from the entryway to your home, and work your way through the places your guests are most likely to go. Check out the intense cleaning guides for living areas, bathrooms, and bedrooms.

3.Don’t forget the clutter.
Clutter can give a spotless home a messy appearance. Give your guests room to move freely in your home. If you’re having trouble getting rid of items ask yourself these questions about clutter. Try to get yourself jump started by choosing a small junk drawer and trying the quick clutter clearing ideas. Don’t forget to use the 4 container clutter method to organize any job.

4.Take shortcuts that work for you.
If there won’t be any children at the party and your guests will only be in living areas, don’t worry about cleaning and detailing family bedrooms. If the party is informal, make your serving dishes informal too. Find ways to save time that fit with the party you’re trying to have.

5.Prepare for minor cleaning emergencies during the party.
Be aware that stains are probably the number one party cleanup culprit. Stock up on your favorite stain removal products. Double check the stain removal helplist. Most of all, don’t stress. These things happen and being prepared only shows more of your ability as host or hostess.

6.Recruit help.
Use your family or closest friends to help you prepare. Find tips on involving your family in cleaning and use them to mobilize your forces at home. Check out our ideas on making chores fun. For many people, professional cleaning help may be the better choice. If you intend to have help before or during the party, be sure to reserve your place as soon as you have the dates and times you’ll need them. Especially during any holiday season, help can be hard to find.

7.Add your own finishing touches.
Preparing your home for a party is more than just stripping it of its clutter and dirt. It also gives you a chance to add small touches that make your home comfortable and inviting. Try flower arrangements, photographs, candles, or incense. Try to stimulate the senses of your guests. Do a walk-through after you’ve cleaned and decluttered to see how your guests will experience the rooms in your home.

8.Enjoy the party.
Try not to stress over the little things that may seem to go wrong during the party. Just enjoy the fruits of your efforts.

Tips:
1.The more involved and complicated the party is, the more time you’ll have to prepare your home. Last minute informal gatherings do not require your home to be in perfect order. The 15 minute cleanups should be adequate to get your house in shape.
What You Need:
•Pen and paper
•Various cleaning supplies
•4 boxes to clear clutter
•Finishing decorative touches
•Stain treatment products

Bathroom Cleaning Tips

Windows and Mirrors

In a 32 oz. spray bottle, add 1/3 cup white (clear) vinegar and 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol. If you absolutely must have another cleaner, add 1 tablespoon automatic dishwashing detergent.

Tubs and Shower Stalls

Alkaline deposits in the water cause those not so pretty spots on your glass doors and shower walls. Apply a car wax to the walls and doors, but not the floor or it gets real slick. Both fiberglass and glass are porous. The car wax seals those pores, which makes cleaning easier and keeps water spots away. Reapply twice yearly.

Squeegee or wipe down your shower after each use to further prevent buildup. If you’re tired of fighting the soap scum buildup, switch to liquid soap, natural soap or Dove. It’s the talc in most bar soaps that causes the buildup. Changing soap can eliminate the buildup. You still need to clean the shower once a week, but the job is easier.

Clean the showers once a week with an orange citrus based cleaner. Spray on and give it ten minutes to dissolve the dirt. Why do all that scrubbing when your product does it for you?

OK, so the soap scum refuses to budge and friends are coming for a visit. Use your orange based cleaner concentrated. Pour plenty on an old dishrag and wipe on the walls and doors. Use can use boiling hot white vinegar (wear gloves) but you must keep applying it as the white vinegar dries. It takes time to dissolve that buildup.

Patience now becomes a virtue. Wait and wait and wait some more. Go clean the rest of the house. If the cleaner starts dripping down the walls, wipe it back on. Check the walls with a fingernail. If the residue removes easily, round one is about over.

Use a white bristle pad to scrub. They look like fibers and are glued to a sponge. Use the white ones only. The colored scrubbers are coarser and do scratch. Test a spot to make sure it won’t scratch the fiberglass. Dampen the pad, keeping it good and wet and gently scrub. This removes the soap buildup and most of the white mineral deposits on the glass doors. Nothing removes the etch marks themselves, but further damage is halted. Reapply the orange citrus cleaner if necessary.

Plastic shower curtains can be machine washed. Remove, spray with your diluted orange based cleaner and wait about 10 minutes. Wash with your rags and they come out quite clean. Air dry. If the curtain is long enough, cut off the seam at the bottom to prevent mildew buildup down there.

Toilets

Ring around your toilet? Again, alkaline deposits cause those nasty rings. Depending on the hardness of your water, pour one or two cups of white vinegar into the toilet once a month to eliminate the problem.

Toilet bowl rings – Here I take a deep breath and plead with you to follow these instructions. Repeat. Follow these instructions. Do not deviate or you will scratch the inside of your toilet bowl.

Turn off the water flow to the toilet and flush to remove the water. Saturate a couple of heavy duty paper towels with white vinegar or the Orange Citrus Cleaner. Place around the edges making sure all areas are covered. Keep the towels damp for several hours, even overnight, until the water spots start dissolving. Then scrub with a stiff nylon brush.

If the white vinegar does not dissolve the whole ring, go to a janitorial supply store or a hardware store and purchase a pumice stone and a stiff toothbrush. Dampen one end of the pumice stone and keep it wet.

Gently, very gently, rub the pumice stone across the lines. When enough pumice builds on the sides, switch to a stiff bristle brush to continue working. Rub gently until the deposit disappears. Pumice will scratch the toilet. Use it only one time and cautiously.

Sinks

Once a month, pour one cup of baking soda, followed by one cup of white vinegar down the drain. Wait an hour and flush with warm water. The combination fizzles away most of the buildup. Works for shower, tub and kitchen sink drains as well.

Faucets

Water deposits build up around faucets and drain areas. Use a paper towel soaked in white vinegar and place around the faucet. Plug the drain and pour 1/2 cup white vinegar in the sink and wait. It takes time for the white vinegar to dissolve the alkaline deposits. Scrub using a stiff bristled nylon toothbrush.

Do not use orange based or powdered cleansers on brass or gold plated faucets. These fixtures corrode and scratch quickly. Dry these faucets after each use to prevent water spot damage.

Mildew

Keep ahead of mildew so it doesn’t become a problem. Every six months spray your bathroom ceiling with a 50/50 solution of hydrogen peroxide and water. Peroxide is a safe bleach and won’t harm the environment or your lungs. Find larger quantities of peroxide at beauty or medical supply stores.

 

Spray the mixture on and leave it. No need to rinse or scrub. If you currently have mildew, follow the above directions. Wait two hours and respray. Then wait 24 hours and spray a third time if necessary.

Your family may not be the only ones enjoying the sofa. The soft, comfortable places where families relax and play at home can harbor millions of bacteria. For example, Staphylococcus bacteria can live on soft surfaces for 24 hours.

Bacteria living within a biofilm need to excrete the sticky goo that holds the biofilm together, which is problematic because synthesising and secreting goo takes up a lot of energy. So within this colony, there will be 'cheaters' - those bacteria that live in the surrounding goo produced by others, while making none themselves.Bacteria living within a biofilm need to excrete the sticky goo that holds the biofilm together, which is problematic because synthesising and secreting goo takes up a lot of energy. So within this colony, there will be ‘cheaters’ – those bacteria that live in the surrounding goo produced by others, while making none themselves.

“Bacteria can be found just about everywhere around the home – on both hard and soft surfaces alike,” says pediatrician Dr. Laura Jana. “While many families take aim at bacteria on hard surfaces such as kitchen and bathroom countertops, soft surfaces tend to fly under the radar during cleaning routines.”

Some commonly overlooked household soft surfaces include:

•Sofas – Since kids spend a significant amount of time playing, sleeping and eating on the sofa, bacteria tends to accumulate on this piece of furniture. However, a recent survey from the Hygiene Council found that the majority (61 percent) of Americans sanitized their sofa only a few times, if at all, since it was purchased. •Mattresses – Families commonly think that washing their sheets is enough to keep their beds clean. However, people shed bacteria-harboring skin cells onto their mattress each night when they sleep, which becomes especially problematic when someone is sick. This provides food for microbes and dust mites. •Pillows – Any surface where people rest their heads is bound to be filled with bacteria, especially surfaces that are consistently used, such as pillows. The mouth, nose and ears are vulnerable orifices that rub against pillows and pick up bacteria left behind by previous users. •Fabric Shoes – Shoes are in constant contact with the ground, which is known to be one of the dirtiest surfaces, but it’s not just the sole of the shoe that collects grime. The fabric surface on shoes also harbors bacteria that is easily transferred when tying your laces or slipping on your heel. •Car Seats – While their purpose is to offer protection on the road, bacteria lurk in the fabric covering of car seats. They often catch crumbs and absorb spills that can accumulate over time.

What You Can Do •Clean your soft furnishings and surfaces regularly to remove germs and microbial food sources. •Consider a steam vapor sanitation device to kill germs without the use of harmful chemicals. Some units have been shown to be very effective at killing pathogens as well as dust mites in fabrics. •UV-C or ultraviolet light has demonstrated effectiveness against microbes on carpets and hard surfaces alike. Some vacuum cleaners offer a UV-C light mounted on the bottom of the vacuum to help control bacterial growth.

•Sanitizing sprays can be very effective at killing bacteria and viruses on soft surfaces.

For more information on proper disinfection and sanitizing routines, families can visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at www.cdc.gov.

How to clean Ceramic tile floors
We sweep and mop on a regular basis and they stay clean and shiny. Mop floors with clear water or just a dash of liquid dish soap.  We change the water when it gets cloudy. Too much soap or dirty water will make floors dull or sticky. We don’t use scrub pads on ceramic tile floors or you might scratch them.  Our professional cleaners wash most floors by hand, cleaning and drying a small area at a time.
How to clean Grout
Grout cleaning is a special order an we must come back another day to provide this special request. Old grout may need cleaning with a wax stripper or heavy-duty cleaner plus a grout brush. Sometimes we use a bleaching cleanser on tough spots.  Once the grout is as clean as you can get it, rinse it well.  When it’s thoroughly dry, apply a coat of masonry sealer so that it doesn’t absorb dirt in the future.

Mildewed grout in tubs or showers, we may use a grout brush with a 1 / 5 solution of chlorine bleach and water. We never use bleach in combination with any ammonia-based product and be sure the area is well-ventilated. When we’ve finished cleaning, rinse the area well to remove all traces of bleach.

We cleaning colored grout with a heavy-duty cleaner and a grout brush, but don’t use bleach because this may remove the color from the grout. Be sure never to use a bleaching solution on colored grout. A masonry sealer can be applied to clean, colored grout to ward off future stains.

The aditional charge for this special cleaning task may go from $100.00 up to $600.00 on large room. The price vary how big is the room.

Daily Cleaning Schedule

Daily cleaning chores are the absolute minimum that must be done on a daily basis to keep a home clean.

Depending on the type of household you live in, some of these chores may even need to be done more than once during a day.

Daily Cleaning Schedule

Daily cleaning chores are the absolute minimum that must be done on a daily basis to keep a home clean. Depending on the type of household you live in, some of these chores may even need to be done more than once during a day.

Weekly Cleaning Schedule

Although most of these chores don’t require daily work, they are still some of the most important tasks that need to be done in our homes. Some items may need to be completed more often. Scheduling these chores in addition to your daily chores will help you maintain order and cleanliness in your home.

Monthly Cleaning  Schedule

Monthly cleaning chores are my favorite weekend chores. These are areas of your home that can afford to be neglected during your daily and weekly cleaning sessions, but ultimately a good thorough monthly cleaning is needed.

Seasonal Cleaning Schedule

Although seasonal cleaning chores are important, they are usually the most forgotten parts of home maintenance. Our attention is only needed in these areas two to three times a year, but it is vital to maintaining and cleaning our homes.

The biweekly cleaning’s  schedule tasks are:

– Dusting all the furnitures;

– Vacuuming under furniture;

– Mopping all hard floors;

– Desinfecting and washing the toilets;

– Changing bed’s sheets;

– Cleaning blinds;

– Empty garbages,

– Take out cob web,

– Wash baseboards.

The cleaners who came last week were wonderful. They were extremely professional cleaners and did a great job. Things were crazy here since we had just returned from the hospital after my husband injured himself. They were very patient with our crazy situation. It has been a complicated couple of weeks.

Thanks,
