Vacuum Cleaners

Posted on July 6, 2014 at 7:37 PM Comments comments ()
Lets face it people.  A vacuum is an expensive investment as far as cleaning equipment goes.  We all have our favorites and  I've owned many different brands.  I struggled with lugging heavy equipment up and down stairs. I've dealt with bag leaks and explosions. I've lived through not having a replacement bag and clogs that can not be cleared without taking the whole vacuum apart. To be honest I never liked any vacuum until I bought a Shark. 
 
I make no endorsement or apologies.  This vacuum has consistently worked best for me.   It's lightweight relatively inexpensive and can be broken down easily for cleaning.  The hepa filters can be washed with warm soapy water (air dried) then put right back into the machine. There are a lot of standard attachments and clogs are easy to remove for both the novice and professional.  It has a dirt cup so there's no need to invest in bags.  It can be emptied and cleaned after every use.
 
 

Windows

Posted on June 13, 2014 at 8:33 PM Comments comments ()
Cleaning windows can be a lot of work or relatively easy. It depends on your cleaning formula and method.
 
Assemble a bucket & cloths,  I like to use white wash cloths for washing & white absorbent hand towels for drying.
 
 I use a simple solution of 1/2 gallon of hot tap water 3 teaspoons of distilled vinegar & 1/4 teaspoon of dish soap.  (Brands don't matter to me in this case).
 
Wash then thoroughly dry the window 1 pane at a time. Start at the top wash then dry thoroughly.  For tilt in type windows tilt in and do the other side.  Move to the lower pane and repeat.  Lift the window to clean the inner and outer sill.
 
Many people use a squeegee (absolutely necessary for very large or high windows) but quite honestly most people have a lot of difficulty with streak and I don't find them practical for most home applications.

Stainless Appliances

Posted on May 23, 2013 at 3:21 PM Comments comments ()
Are your stainless appliances always streaky or fingerprinted? 
 
 I always have the best results from Weiman products.  Remember you must start with a clean surface.  Use a little dish soap & water to clean stainless before applying polish.  The trick in a perfect result lies in drying the surface completely.  Apply the stainless steel polish to a soft cloth & cover the entire surface with a thin layer.  Use another dry soft cloth to polish completely dry.  Remember to always wipe with the grain (usually up & down). 

Cleaning efficency tips

Posted on May 23, 2013 at 3:08 PM Comments comments ()
As promised I will be posting general efficiency comments & tips from professional housekeepers. 
 
Do you look at your house and honestly don't know where to start? 
 
Maria's- A general rule of thumb is top to bottom.  What does that mean?  Start upstairs or at one end of the house & do all tasks systematically on each level.  Cleaning each room separately just adds up to more minutes of cleaning drudgery.  Dust every room then remove trash from the entire level etc. 
 
Mary - A magic eraser really is magic.  Awesome in tubs & showers.  Really shines up stainless faucets and cabinet pulls. (A word of caution from me - not to be used on stainless appliances).
 
Lisa - Gather all supplies in advance.  The simpler, the better.  There really isn't a need for a lot of chemicals.  Lisa uses bleach, vinegar, lemon oil & stainless steel polish to make homes beautiful.
 
Jessica - Work in teams of two.  Two people can do more together than two can do separately.

Avoid VOC's

Posted on April 17, 2013 at 9:20 PM Comments comments ()
Not feeling so healthy these days? Maybe it’s the cleaning chemicals you are working with.
Avoid:
-Non-green cleaners as much as possible.
-Cleaners that contain VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) Use VOC free glass cleaners if possible. You are breathing in very high amounts of VOC’s when working with chemicals all the time.
-Scented cleaners. The scents in most cleaners are VOC’s.

What?  No reviews?  Time for one!  We were visiting Groton to welcome our submariner son home from a grueling 7 month deployment.  We decided it would be a nice surprise for him to have his house cleaned.  Thinking we didn't want to tackle 7 months worth of fur from 2 cats, dust, grime, and general crud, we looked to Yelp. Finding nothing we took a chance with Annie's All Clean and are glad we did. First of all, Barbara was SO accommodating with our uncertainty of a day and time. Then she and her assistant devoted 3 hours and worked wonders. Besides that, she gave us a discount I'm sure, because our son is Navy and she said this was for a good cause. (Sorry, Barbara, I probably shouldn't say that!). She even followed up to ask if he liked the results. (He did, very much)The next time we want to treat our son, we will call on her.  Excellent and professional

Rubber Flooring

Posted on April 8, 2013 at 8:02 AM Comments comments ()
Rubber flooring is made of natural rubber which is coloured by mineral pigments. Oil, solvents, strong soaps and alkalis may damage rubber tile. The rubber floor should be protected against indentation (chair legs) and against deterioration from sunlight. It may become discoloured and lose its elasticity. Abrasive cleaners should always be avoided because they may scratch the tile. Rubber tile has a non-porous, smooth surface and is resistant to stains, acids and mild alkalis. It provides a very durable surface.
Rubber flooring responds well to buffing techniques. Soft brushes are recommended instead of pads. They bring out the natural lustre of the rubber floor and also clean around raised “buttons” contained in many rubber floors as an anti-slip feature.
