If your home never seems to really look clean and sparkly even after you spend hours cleaning, then perhaps you aren't doing it the right way. Thankfully, there are many things you can do to get your home sparkling clean without spending hours accomplishing the task. To get your home looking like it has been professionally cleaned by a local maid service, follow each of these tips.
Tip: Gather up All of the Laundry, Trash, and Clutter Before You Start Cleaning
Before you can start deep cleaning, first you should walk through your house and gather up all of the laundry and get it started in the washing machine. As soon as that's finished, walk through with a large trash bag and gather up all trash and put it in your outdoor trashcan. Using a laundry basket, walk around your home and deposit all of your clutter or items out of place into it. Walk through the house and place the items back where they belong all in one walk around your home.
Now that all the laundry, trash, and clutter is gone, cleaning will be a lot easier.
Tip: Scrub Your Kitchen Appliances with a Degreasing Cleaner
Nothing makes your kitchen look cleaner than when its appliances are sparkling clean and free of grease and grime. The best way to accomplish this is to use a strong degreasing cleaner purchased from your local hardware store. Skip the wimpy cleaners at the grocery store and use something strong enough to really do the job.
Tip: Polish Mirrors Using the Correct Supplies and Technique
If you clean your home's mirrors by spraying them with glass cleaner and wiping them down with paper towels, then you are doing it all wrong. For clean and sparkling mirrors, start by wiping them down with some rubbing alcohol. The alcohol will remove all of the grease and grime that leaves streaks on mirrors. Once cleaned with alcohol, then spray the mirrors with a mixture of vinegar and water and wipe them clean using a microfiber cloth.
Tip: Mop and Wax Your Kitchen Floor
One of the ways professional house cleaners make your home sparkle is by both mopping and waxing the kitchen floor and any others made of vinyl or tile. Simply mopping with soapy water will leave your floors looking dull and dingy. However, once you apply some floor polish they will shine and look amazing.
Bonus Tip: Hire a Professional Maid Cleaning Service Occasionally to Deep Clean
If you really want professional cleaning results, then it is always best to hire a professional residential cleaning crew to come in and do the job. Even if you don't use their services every week, having an occasional deep cleaning can really make a big difference in how clean your home looks.
