Taking care of a family is probably the hardest job any parent will ever experience. Between getting the children to school, making it to work on time, picking the kids up, making dinner, getting homework finished, and making sure everyone is bathed and in bed at bedtime, parents can feel as if they are being spread a little thin. After all of this, who even has time to think about cleaning the house? When those dirty breakfast dishes and unwashed laundry begin to pile up, many people resign themselves to the fact that they will never catch up on the housework. However, most people do not even consider the always-available option of hiring a maid. Many people might be wary of hiring someone to help in their home because of the harsh chemicals that might be used. Yet, many house cleaning professionals use many techniques that are natural and environmentally friendly, so they are safe to use around children and pets.
Wood floors are extremely delicate and many chemicals can strip the finishing off of them or cause other types of damage. Many people are guilty of not knowing how to clean them properly. A cleaning professional knows the safest and most efficient way to get the job done. Apple-cider vinegar is an environmentally friendly way to get those floors to shine like new. The cleaning professional will dilute the vinegar in warm water. He or she will then work on one patch at a time, cleaning it and then drying it. Since the wood can absorb any type of solution, no matter how safe it is, it should never be allowed to dry on its own. A professional maid knows this and will do his or her best to keep those wood floors looking clean and new.
Whoever said that dish soap should only be used on dirty dishes was mistaken. Dish soap can be a safe alternative to other types of ammonia-based glass cleaners. Diluting five drops of dish soap into a couple gallons of water creates a solution that will cut through the fingerprints and grime that build up on windows. The solution can be applied and rubbed in with a sponge. Once it has done its job it can be removed with a squeegee.
Blinds can be an absolute pain to clean. It is time-consuming and there always seems to be dust that is still stuck to the blinds whenever you’re done cleaning. A maid knows the exact reason this happens. It is due to static. When cleaning blinds, a safe alternative they use to eliminate both the dust and the static is a simple dryer sheet. The water will grab hold of the dust and the dryer sheet will eliminate the static, preventing new dust from settling.
Hiring a maid can be a daunting task to many individuals. However, the safe and effective techniques that are used can benefit almost anyone’s home and offer the homeowner free time to do the things that matter most to them.
