Helpful tips to maintain you home or office from A&S Total Cleaning

Whatever style you prefer is up to you, here are some tips for how to maintain your home or office from A&S Total Cleaning:

  • No matter what style of cleaning you prefer, you first step is to decide how clean you want your house and how much time you have for cleaning. This will help you decide how to set up your cleaning schedule. Be honest with yourself about what you can do. Some people prefer to put off cleaning as long as possible, and then have a big cleaning campaign now and then. The “average” person in today’s world may find it better to do a little bit every day so that the work does not pile up, as well as major-cleaning days a few times a month.
  •     It is commonly believed that glass cleaner does the cleaning but in fact it is no substitute for soapy water! First, wash your glass (including windows and mirrors) with a solution of warm or hot water, dish soap and a rag, sponge, or squeegee. Powdered no-scratch cleaner works fantastic for cleaning mirrors, glass, ceramics, and metals because it scrubs off hard water residue without scratching the surface. Wipe down surface with a dry lint-free cloth or lint-free paper towels. Now it’s time for the glass cleaner. The glass cleaner acts as a shield to help keep spots and dust easy to remove. When misused, glass “cleaner” will leave streaks. If you want to clean glass and be environmentally friendly, clean the glass with vinegar and water, dry with a lint-free cloth, and rub the glass with newspaper; No streaks!
  •     Furniture polish is not meant to be a cleaner; however, it can be used for cleaning. If you would like to use furniture polish, make sure to carefully read the labels and find one made specifically for what you need. Some furniture can handle water, and those that can should be cleaned with the soapy solution from step one. Be sure to quickly dry these surfaces. Next, apply the suggested amount of furniture polish and wipe away according to directions. This will keep dust from magnetizing to your furniture.
