It’s summertime, and we sure can feel it! Temperatures are rising (along with humidity), and we’re trying our best to keep our homes clean. The door is constantly opening and children and pets are running through the house at random, causing dirt to pile up in the corners of our kitchens and living rooms. But don’t sweat it! We’re going to review a few tips for what not to do this summer while cleaning. And if worse comes to worst, The Steam Team is always standing by to help you out! The best cleaning company in Austin, Texas for grout cleaning.
Mistake # 1: Cleaning in the Incorrect Order
So, when you set out to clean, where do you start? Most people feel tempted to start with the floor- maybe because it bugs us so much. But this is actually a mistake. Start cleaning upward and work your way down; this way, the dust and debris will settle onto the floor, and you can clean it up last.
Mistake # 2: Relying on General Cleaning Products - For Everything
It’s important to read labels on cleaning products to ensure you’re not going to damage your leather sofa, or your carpet, or the countertops, etc! For example, steam cleaning is great for a variety of surfaces, but not hardwood flooring! Know the rules before you begin cleaning.
Mistake # 3: Setting the Wrong Expectations for Time Spent Cleaning
It could take time. A lot of time. And it’s important that you’re aware of this so that you you’re able to thoroughly clean, instead of having to rush toward the end of your allotted time.
Mistake # 4: Clogging Up the Vacuum Cleaner
Be sure to change the vacuum cleaner filter often, or else your vacuuming will be futile. There’s nothing worse than having to redo a cleaning job!
Mistake # 5: Not Taking Your Time
Lastly, take your time while cleaning. Catch every nook and cranny. You’ll be thankful in the long run- we promise!
