South Florida Cleaning Tips

 If you’re using all-purpose cleaners remember to be cautious, they aren’t always safe for the purposes you’ll need. Make sure always read the directions on the labels before purchasing to ensure it fits your needs. Do not mix cleaners! Use them one at a time and follow the directions on the label.

 Outdoor tasks can help create a better living environment. Raking leaves helps to prevent mold growth that happens in wet climates after raining. Raking regularly will also assist in dropping the bug count in your yard. Raking will also leave your yard looking neat and cared for and offer more room for grass to grow and sunlight to reach. Trimming back plants (hedges, rose bushes, etc.) can help prevent water lines and dirt from getting on the walls of your home. Remember your decks, siding and trim, order paint and be ready for the first cooler days of early autumn. Will you need to perform touch-up work before the heat starts beating down?
 Your best defense against fleas and bed bugs is your vacuum cleaner! Your carpet is a breeding ground for fleas and bed bugs, if you have pets you should try to vacuum daily. This will keep bugs out of the places they are successful in breeding, where there is pet and human dander. To kill fleas without using poisons, after each vacuuming, sprinkle borax on your carpets and let it work its way into the carpet backing. You can find the Borax in the laundry detergent area of grocery stores, usually on the top shelf. Check our web site www.totalcleaning.com for more information about our services.
