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.

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.
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.
There is nothing quite as beautiful as sparkling and shining glassware. Equally there is nothing quite as unattractive as smudged and dull glassware that shows watermarks or is covered in a dull white film. It need only take a small amount of time to make sure you have stunningly beautiful glass. The tips below are devised by Maid2Clean’s experts with years of experience in home cleaning in Northstaffs.
Never put expensive drinking glasses into the dishwasher. Glasses that have been cleaned regularly in a dishwasher develop a white film across their surface and this discolouration may become permanent. This may be acceptable for cheap, bargain glasses but not for expensive crystal glasses.
To clean up cloudy looking glasses soak them in warm vinegar and then scrub using white toothpaste. If this doesn’t work, then it is probably due to the glass having been scratched by the dishwasher and unfortunately they can no longer be salvaged, not even by professional domestic cleaners in Southend.
Make sure you wash crystal glasses and other glassware that you want to keep shiny by hand. You can use standard washing up liquid and rinse off any residue with clean warm water. A plastic bowl is best so that you don’t inadvertently knock the glass against hard surfaces. Leave the glassware to dry on a clean towel with the bottom up or buff the glassware carefully using a lint free cloth.
When it comes to domestic cleaners in Southend, there are many professional cleaners that can make sure that your glassware is well cared for. At Maid2Clean we offer a full range of home cleaning services around Northstaffs, Southend and other areas.
