Cleaning Tips

How to clean like a pro?

No matter if you live in the London’s center or in the country, you cannot run away from some duties. And here on the first place stays cleaning. It’s definitely not our favorite activity, but taking care of our homes, is what makes them homes indeed. We go to work during the weekdays, coming back tired, dreaming of the comfort of the sofa, of the coziness of the bed and the idea of spending some precious time with those we love. Yeah, cleaning isn’t in the program at all. In the weekend we all prefer sleeping until late, having a brunch and then going for a walk, or in the cinema, or shopping. We postpone the annoying cleaning until our home becomes an unwelcome place where we don’t feel calm and cannot just snug together.

But what if I tell you that if you know how to clean your flat it won’t be tiresome at all, even when it’s not a normal refreshing cleaning, but an after tenancy one.

Prepare

You are not an expert, so do a research. Online you can watch many wonderful videos showing different techniques which are used by professionals. The next step is providing detergents and cleaning tolls. Here it’s important not to prefer cheap ones at the expense of the quality. You better buy only one detergent but make sure that it’s high-grade, useful and suits your needs. If you want to clean like a pro during the move out cleaning you can invest for the future. When you are wondering what kind of vacuum-cleaner you could buy, choose a professional one. It’s going to be more expensive, but it is also going to work better. If you have more money to spend, then consider buying a steam cleaner or a Rainbow cleaning system.

Don’t distract your attention

When you have decided that you are going to clean your home you better decide when that is going to happen. The most common mistake is starting the big cleaning on Monday, for instance, taking a break for two days and then continuing it on Thursday. proThis kind of distraction is absolutely not professional.  So choose 2 or 3 days when the whole cleaning has to be done. Start doing one task after another according to a plan you have prepared earlier. Being organized is the most important ingredient of the professionalism.

Work, work, work

Yes, the technique and the cleaning tools are of great importance, but the truth is that nothing works, unless you do. So don’t complain and be positive. Instead of always saying how annoying, boring and useless the cleaning is, aim high, strive for perfection, no matter if it’s about a promotion at work you crave for, about learning a new language, mastering your cooking skills, becoming a better person or simply about doing the end of tenancy cleaning by yourself. Work! And if you find cleaning as a distraction, hire one of the London’s best cleaning companies.

 

 

How to Clean Up after Dusty DIY Projects

So, you’ve decided that you want to take on a home improvement project. You’ll save money, increase the value of your Orlando home and experience the great feeling of doing it yourself.

But have you considered what it’s going to be like afterwards, when it’s time for the clean up? Construction dust hangs in the air, finds its way into every nook and cranny of your Orlando home and seems to last for an eternity.

You try vacuuming up the dust, but find you can’t seem to get rid of it all. Here are the steps I’ve found that work best for removing that fine dust:

Sweep the walls with a clean broom to remove the dust. Use a paint brush to get the dust out of all the corners. Let the dust settle for an hour or two.
Vacuum the floors. Do not start by sweeping them with a broom. No matter what type of floors you have, even if they’re wood or tile, use a vacuum.women-740662_640 A shop vac with a brush attachment and a HEPA filter works best. (The fine construction dust could damage a typical household vacuum.) Vacuum slowly to avoid stirring up the dust.
Mop the floors. Add 1 cup of vinegar to a bucket of water. Mop thoroughly, rinsing your mop frequently.
Examine your walls the following day. If you see dust, sweep them again. Then wipe down the entire surface with a wet cloth or sponge. Rinse your wet cloth or sponge frequently. NOTE: If your project included new drywall, do not use anything wet on the drywall. The topping compound used over the drywall seams and nail heads is very lightweight material that is feather sanded to perfection. Wiping it with a damp sponge could damage it.
Repeat. If your floors look dull, or if you can see construction dust on them, vacuum and mop them again as outlined in 2 and 3 above.
If you’re going to paint, wait until the majority of the dust has been removed before you start. You don’t have to remove every speck of dust from your walls before painting, but you don’t want to paint over a lot of dust. Clean walls make painting easier and the results better.
