Cleaning Tips

Customers often ask tips for maintaining their home in-between their alternate-weekly or weekly cleaning service. As an industry leader in maid services, our experienced residential housekeepers have compiled a variety of techniques over the last 20 years. Here are three major housekeeping tips that save time, making your house cleaning more efficient and effective.

  • 1. Dust left to right, top to bottom.

    Cleaning homes left to right, top to bottom corrals dust and dirt and prevents house cleaners from missing an area.

  • 2. Dust first, vacuum second.

    Even the best house cleaner can't keep all dirt, dust and other allergens securely in a rag. These particles fly around, ultimately ending up on the floor. Vacuuming after you've dusted ensures cleaner homes and surfaces.

  • 3. Regularly brush and bathe pets.

    Keeping pets brushed and bathed eliminates the amount of dander, dirt and other allergens circulating through your home. Cleaning pet brushes and bathing your dog or cat outside, or in one room of your home, also cuts down on additional dirt and mess.
