Fall in Love with Residential Cleaning

Scott Schramer -

Make February the month to fall in love with your house again. Rather than allowing clutter and dust to collect, use these cold days to improve and refine your indoor cleaning routine.

Here are just a few professional suggestions to achieve the best residential cleaning:

  • Supplies: Invest in quality cleaning supplies before using them around your home. Professional residential cleaners suggest using glycerin or vegetable oil-based soaps on carpets because they rinse out of carpets much easier than tallow-based soaps. Additionally, these types of soaps will not leave a gunky residue behind!

  • Easy Start: When starting a thorough residential cleaning, begin with the easy stuff. If there’s a guest room or another space of the house that’s low-traffic, start by dusting and organizing that space. Once you complete that simple task, you’ll be motivated to tackle the tougher jobs!

  • Focus: If you want to focus on residential cleaning, really focus on the process. That means put away phones, turn off the television, and remain on task. Cleaning your home doesn’t need to take long, but if you’re jamming out to music or distracted by the TV, the process may stretch on for a few hours.

  • Top to Bottom: When completing residential cleaning, work from top to bottom. That means sweeping dust, crumbs, pet hair, and dander onto the floor as you clean, and then finishing the process with a thorough sweep and vacuum. That way you’ll make sure to get rid of all that extra dust and dander at the very end!

Residential cleaning is the perfect way to fall in love with your home again. If you’re feeling a little uncertain about following the steps above, make sure to call in the professionals for an assist.
