A cluttered kitchen with an overflowing sink of dirty dishes is enough to make anyone feel depressed. If you let a kitchen get out of hand you can soon feel overwhelmed. However, with these tips you’ll have a sparkling, welcoming kitchen in no time:
Get all your cleaning equipment together, as this will make sure you can really get stuck into the task. You’ll need a general kitchen cleaner, some cleaning clothes, scrubbers and sponges, paper towels, an oven cleaner, rubber gloves, a dustpan and brush, mop and bucket, floor cleaner and a vacuum cleaner.
While the dishes soak, use the time to clear and wipe the counter tops. Also, return items to the cupboards, fridge and pantry. Throw any rubbish away.
If you have a dishwasher, put those items that can be safely washed in the appliance and start it up. Leave any heavily soiled dishes to be washed by hand. If you don’t have a dishwasher, enlist the help of family to wash, rinse and dry.
If you don’t have time to tackle big kitchen jobs, you may want to consider using home cleaning services. We offer house cleaning services in various localities, including Northwich, Kent and other areas. At Maid2Clean we offer professional house cleaning services in Crewe and Altrincham to Croydon and Stoke on Trent. Some people may feel strange about hiring a service to clean their home, but house cleaning services can make a real difference, and make it look better than it may have done in years.
Cleaning the oven is for many the absolute worst nightmare, so here are some tips for getting it gleaming if you’d prefer to tackle it yourself rather than employing the services offered by domestic cleaners in Croydon.
Use bicarbonate of soda which has been mixed with water into a thick paste. Take the paste and then smear it over the sides of the oven ensuring everything is covered. Leave the paste to work its magic overnight and then in the morning roll up those sleeves and get scrubbing with a scourer.
This is less work but you’ll need to make more preparations. Get together a bowl of ammonia bleach and warm water. You’ll need to wear a respiratory face mask, protective clothing, rubber gloves and also cover the surrounding area. Take out the oven shelves and use the solution to cover them. Once covered seal the trays in a plastic bag like a bin bag. Spray the oven with the same solution.
After several hours you can take a hose to the trays and wash away the solution making sure no pets, plants or children etc can come into contact with the solution. Then give them a good wash with soapy water.
Next rinse the oven thoroughly with clean water. If you are asthmatic or pregnant, find someone else to do the dirty work. Keep pets and kids away, too.
If that all sounds far too much graft, then there is an even better solution. Domestic cleaners in Croydon can do the job for you! Here at Maid2Clean, we offer a professional and efficient service based on almost 2 decades of experience of home cleaning services in Croydon.
Cleaning windows can be a trial and you may often ponder over how domestic cleaners in Croydon get that streak free finish. There are some basic tips to learn that can make sure you too have the prefect gleaming windows.
The first important step is to buy a high quality squeegee. They can really make the difference between a smudged window and a sparkling one. A good squeegee is has a rubber blade which is soft and pliable and has no imperfections. There are replaceable blades so when one starts to wear out you can simply swap it for a new one.
The next top tip is to make sure you clean you windows on a cloudy or cool day. If you have no choice, but to wash windows on a sunny day make sure you tackle them in the morning. Heat is your enemy here.
Next use a lukewarm bucket of water and add to it a few tablespoons of white vinegar. Use a sponge to wet the window and with the slightly abrasive side then clean off any fixed dirt and grime. Make sure you have no rough patches as this is what causes your windows to smudge and cloud.
Rinse the window and take your squeegee to remove any excess water. Use the squeegee by placing it at the top corner of the window and pulling down smoothly. After each sweep dry your squeegee blade.
If cleaning windows is a chore you’d rather leave to the professionals, at Maid2Clean we can handle all of your domestic cleaning in Croydon professionally and efficiently. We pride ourselves on being experienced professionals in this industry, and should be your first port of call for cleaning services in Croydon.
