Time to clean


For many people with a busy lifestyle, housework is very often the last item on the agenda which results in household chores piling up or a last minute dash trying to sort through chaos. When a person has a full schedule with very little spare time, it is often crucial that their home is clutter free and organised as this helps to maintain peace and calm. Working in a city such as Manchester may also involve commuting which is extremely tiring. Employing a cleaner may be a solution to the household chores.

Finding a reputable company is essential as the cleaner may need to hold keys to your property, which is why you should look for a company that carries out stringent security checks on each cleaner. Here at Maid2Clean we have a team of domestic cleaners in Manchester who are thoroughly vetted and happy for you to carry out an interview in your own home. Employing a cleaning company can ensure you have a clean home which is comfortable to return to after a long and stressful day, leaving you free to relax or entertain friends.

If your household budget is a high priority, finding a home cleaner in York or Manchester, amongst many cities we work within, at a great price is important for you. The cost and the standard of cleaning should be looked at closely when choosing a cleaner. Many people choose to employ a cleaner from a larger company who will undertake all the security checks, so that you can interview your prospective cleaner without having to worry. We offer house cleaning services in Croydon, north west Kent, and other UK locations.




Taking care of your flooring


Hardwood floors

Keeping hardwood floors in excellent condition is critical when ensuring that you maintain the value of the flooring as well as the natural beauty of the wood. Hardwood can be easily scratched and damaged which create a dull surface appearance so it is essential to keep grit and dirt off the floor. You can keep on top of this with a regular vacuuming regime once a week or giving the floor a weekly sweep.

You need to tackle any spillages as and when they happen. If you leave liquid on the hardwood it will start to seep into the seams and joints of the wood and can lead to permanent damage. Once you clean up a spillage make sure you remove and moisture with a dry cloth.

Keeping tiles easy is relatively easy. Keep them vacuumed or brushed on a weekly basis, and then mop over using a mild floor detergent and hot water. In times when they are very soiled, repeat the mopping several times until clean.

Knowing how to clean your own property can be a difficult undertaking, yet there are people who can help. We provide full home cleaning services in Altrincham, as well as other locations around the country. Our home cleaning services are carried out by the best cleaners available, and you can be sure that when you use our home cleaning services your home will be in good hands.

Getting that sparkling kitchen


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.




Tips for tackling those chores you love to hate


Keeping your home clean and pristine can seem like a full time job. In our busy lives we often only have time to skim the household chores, often leaving some of the nitty-gritty cleaning until it becomes a major project. Here are some tips for tackling some of the least loved elements of cleaning at home:

Greasy roasting pans

Everyone hates cleaning ovens and the roasting pan can sometime get neglected. Burnt-on food can be a devil to get off so simply pour in some boiling water add some biological powder and leave to simmer for around 10 minutes. The grease will then come off with minimum effort.

Finger printed stainless steel

Stainless steel counters and surfaces can look stunning when clean but often they get covered in greasy marks. A micro fibre cloth can remove them quickly so that they shine once more.

Food encrusted microwaves

We’ve all done it; You overheat a favourite curry and it explodes in the microwave. The microwave is now encrusted with a curry mess that seems to be welded onto every surface. However you can quickly get rid of the debris by putting a small dish of lemon slices and hot water into the microwave and turning it on for 5 minutes. The steam created will soften the food stains and the lemon will leave a lovely citrus fragrance.

If you simply don’t have time to keep on top of these chores then domestic cleaning services in Manchester can help you to keep a clean home. At Maid 2 Clean we have home cleaning services available through the Manchester area.




Keeping dust mites under control


Even though they are invisible to the eye as they scuttle to and fro, dust mites are all around our homes. They can have a negative impact on your health and contribute to the level of dust on surfaces. This undesirable housemate must be kept under control by regular cleaning.

Dust mites are found in every home, and these tiny creatures live off the human skin cells that we all shed. In return, they excrete waste continually and it is these excretions that cause health problems. As a dust mite loves average levels of moisture and humidity, they will happily set up base in a family home on areas such as mattresses, bedding, furniture, soft toys and any soft furnishings that come into contact with your skin on an ongoing basis.

They can cause asthma and other breathing problems, as the excretion irritates air passages leading to respiratory problems. As bedding, mattresses and pillows are some of the best breeding grounds for the dust mite, you can often experience these breathing difficulties at night and not in the day.

To keep them at bay you need to vacuum regularly and change the vacuum cleaner bag often, especially if you have young children crawling round.

You won’t be able to prevent dust mites but keeping on top of the cleaning helps. If you struggle to clean regularly and live near Southend or elsewhere in the UK, then we have home cleaning services in the Southend area that can help. At Maid2Clean, we have an expert team of domestic cleaners in Southend to ensure you keep the dust mites at bay.




Tackling your leather furniture cleaning


One of the most overlooked areas of cleaning is that of leather furniture, and yet with regular attention you can prevent it tarnishing through mould and daily grime. These more specialist areas of cleaning can be dealt with professionally by a home cleaner in the Northumberland area, providing you with peace of mind. Here are some tips to keeping your leather looking brand new:

General cleaning care

These general tips can be used to maintain all types of leather. Firstly, always position any leather furniture or accessories away from the sunlight. As leather can mould very easily, it needs to be cleaned on a regular basis. The best cloths for the job are soft, micro fibre cloths which can be used to clean, using a good quality leather cleaner. Choose a leather cleaner that will preserve the natural oils in the leather, as these lubricate the surface, and prevent cracking and discolouration.

Avoid any cleaners that could remove these important oils, and never use cleaners that leave an oily residue, as this can cause the leather to become infected with bacteria. If possible, test your leather cleaner on a small patch that is not visible to the eye.

Removing tough spots

If you have dirt spots on the leather sofa, for example, try cleaning the area using a cotton swab that has been dipped in some alcohol.

At Maid2Clean, we have a professional team of domestic cleaners in Northumberland, who can help you with all your general and specialist cleaning.




Keeping kitchen surfaces shining


If you want to ensure you have an attractive kitchen, it is essential that you keep the work surfaces in tip-top condition. Its not just about creating a good looking kitchen either – the kitchen is a place where you need to maintain high standards of hygiene, and it requires attention on a regular basis. For those in the North West, home cleaning services throughout Bolton and Rochdale can help.

General Surfaces

Daily, you should try to clean as you go. Clean with a mild detergent or an anti-bacterial one. You can mix a cleaner with water in a spray to make it quick and easy to apply. Most of the handling of food happens here, so maintain high standards of cleanliness.

Kitchen tiles

The tiles around the kitchen can often be overlooked, but they can quickly become smattered in grease and grime. With regular cleaning, using a mild cleaner, they will shine. If you have grouting, use a mixture of bleach and water in a 1:4 ratio, and use an old toothbrush to remove any staining.

Stainless steel surfaces

If you have stainless steel surfaces, they can quickly look dull and grimy. Once cleaned they can shine brilliantly – but you’ll have to deal with fingerprint marks. Use micro fibre cloths with a small drop of baby oil to wipe any finger prints away. Only use non-abrasive cleaners to avoid scratches.

At Maid2Clean, we offer a range of domestic cleaning services that can be accessed locally in your area, including domestic cleaning in Bolton and Rochdale.




Tips For Staying On Top Of The Housework


Most households these days are extremely busy and we can become over faced by chores, allowing housework to mount up over time until it gets out of hand.  One of the biggest secrets of maintaining a clean, sparkling house is to chip away at the cleaning bit by bit.  Here are some great tips for keeping the cleaning manageable so when the time comes for you to employ home cleaners in Southend, their job won’t be as intense:

Home in on prime areas

There are certain jobs that cannot be overlooked.  These include the vacuuming of carpets and cleaning the bathroom.  There are other jobs which are ‘nice-to-do’ jobs such as re-arranging the kitchen cupboards, but these can be sidelined until you have free time. For those more strenuous jobs, why not hire home cleaners in Southend?

Take your opportunities

You’ll be surprised to see how much can be achieved on a busy schedule.  Often you only need fifteen minutes to quickly run a vacuum cleaner around or to wipe over the kitchen surfaces.  Put together a cleaning schedule to help you chip away at chores on a weekly basis.  If you can’t manage something don’t worry, you can catch up another time.

Delegate housework

Get your family involved and show children how important being clean and tidy is.  By showing children tasks such as making the bed and hanging out the washing, you are teaching them invaluable life lessons.

Use professionals

Keep Your Tiled Flooring In Tip Top Condition


You may not pay a great deal of attention to how you clean your floor tiles, but it can make a big difference to the appearance of your kitchen or bathroom.  Many of the steps take little effort but they will enhance the look of tiled flooring significantly.  Always remember that if you simply don’t have the time to tackle this yourself, domestic cleaners in York are on-hand to take away the burden.

Always sweep the tile flooring several times a week.  This will stop abrasive dirt from damaging the tiled surface and will also protect the grouting.

Grout will soak up any spillages due to its porous nature, so make sure you wipe up spills quickly.

Make sure you lay down a door mat or rug at areas of the room where there is high traffic, such as entrances.  In the winter months salt and snow can be walked into the home.  You can avoid water damage this way, and also prevent salts tarnishing the finish of your tiles. When the time comes for domestic cleaners in Manchester to clean your home, it will take much less effort this way.

Shoes can rub away at the surface of tiles like sandpaper, so put in place a strict no shoe policy to keep wear and tear to a minimum.

Clean tiles regularly to avoid mildew and water from causing mould.  This will make surfaces safe for the family.

If you live in South Manchester and you don’t have time to clean regularly due to work commitments, then enlist the help of a home cleaner.  At Maid2Clean, we have professional home cleaning services in Manchester to help with all cleaning needs.

If you would prefer to tackle the cleaning yourself, having professional domestic cleaners in York to clean the tiling at least once a year will help your floor last a lifetime.




Keep the upholstery fresh


If you have a disaster with the sofa, never fear; there are many ways of getting it clean again.  However, firstly take a look at the label to ensure you don’t make any basic mistakes. However, if you’d prefer to leave this task to efficient home cleaners in Southend, Maid2Clean are here to answer your call.

You can get yourself into a regime for keeping your upholstery looking brand new:

•    Once a week – take a vacuum cleaner over the surface of the sofa and chairs to maintain its finish for longer.  If you get those vacuum cleaner tools out you’ll be able to get into all the nooks and crannies to ensure a super clean finish.
•    Every few weeks – take any loose covers off and clean them. If you follow the instructions left by the manufacturer you won’t go wrong and remember some covers may be dry clean only.  If they can be machine washed, put them back on the sofa when still damp.  This will help to get them back into shape.
•    Every few months – take time to clean fixed covers that are washable.  Using a gentle solution of laundry detergent or washing up liquid mixed with warm water you’ll get rid of any dirty marks.  Try an area that is hidden at first to ensure it doesn’t damage the fabric.Avoid getting the surface too wet and dry it quickly.  You can speed up the drying by dabbing the area with a dry cloth, opening the windows or using a hairdryer.

Home cleaning services in Southend can cater for all your upholstery cleaning needs.  Here at Maid2Clean, we have an expert team to provide excellent home cleaning services in Southend and elsewhere.
