Have you come to the conclusion that you can't maintain a clean house by yourself? If so, maybe you have decided to get your house cleaned by professionals before Christmas and New Year's Eve arrive. From arranging for maid service to having residential carpet cleaning services, here are some ideas that might help you.
Arrange For Maid Service - Have you ever had a maid before? If you have, then you probably don't need to read another word. However, if you haven't had a maid, you might be looking for ideas on how to best utilize his or her services.
For example, if the maid will be coming every day, choose chores for him or her to do so that, by the end of the week, your house will be spotless. On Monday, the maid could do a light cleaning throughout the house. On Tuesday, maybe he or she could focus his or her time on things like cleaning silver and handwashing delicate collectibles.
Wednesday might be the day where the maid cleans out the refrigerator and the oven. Thursdays could be the day that linens are changed. Bedrooms and bathrooms could be cleaned on the same day. Save Friday for cleaning the living areas so they'll look nice for weekend events.
If the maid is coming only every week or every other week, still divide chores up, prioritizing the ones you want to be completed first.
Arrange For Residential Carpet Cleaning - Even though the maid will be vacuuming, think of having professionals deep clean the carpets. The workers will have state-of-the-art equipment that will help them even remove stains that the maid couldn't get rid of. Do you have pets? If so, you probably already know that accidents have occurred that have left an unpleasant odor that sprays can't cover up completely. The carpet cleaners will do such a thorough job that even those pet odors will vanish away.
Maybe you are concerned that your fine carpets will be damaged with cleaning products. No worries. The cleaners will have cleaning solutions that will be gentle on the carpets while still leaving them very clean. If they are in doubt as to which cleaning products to use, they will probably spot test a cleanser on a part of your carpet that doesn't show, say a spot under a credenza.
Think of having the carpets cleaned on a consistent basis. For instance, since you're having the job done before Christmas, then early spring might be a good time to have the residential carpet cleaning services return.
