Learning to Clean Like The Pro's

A few years ago, I realized that I didn't really know how to keep my house clean. There were always dishes sitting in the sink, and I couldn't keep up with laundry if my life depended on it. However, a friend of mine suggested working with a professional maid, and so I took her advice. As she worked, I watched her methods, and I learned a lot. This blog is dedicated to my cleaning studies. Here, you will find information on how to clean your house more effectively, so that you can stop wasting time on certain jobs. My plan is that this website could help you to live better than ever. Thanks for reading!

Home Floor Cleaning: What You Need To Do To Keep Your Home Clean


If you wonder if the flooring in your home needs professional cleaning, and you worry about what type of illnesses, bacteria, and fungi are living in the home, talk with a home floor cleaning company today. Having dirty floors can lead to sickness in the home, and you don't want to spread bacteria from the floors to other surface areas around the house. Here are some of the things to consider when you start getting quotes for the work you need done.

Carpet Cleaning to Kill Bacteria

There are plenty of bacteria and microbes living in your home, this is especially true with carpeting. Some hazardous bacteria living in the carpeting could include:

  • Salmonella
  • E Coli
  • Norovirus

Everything that gets carried on your shoes and feet gets spread throughout the carpeting, along with bacteria that form from moisture. Dust and debris also live in the carpeting. The carpet cleaning is necessary to help:

  • Kill the bacteria
  • Remove odors
  • Extract stains
  • Restore plushness and softness

The carpet cleaning professionals will target and spot-treat any major stains or discoloration, and use an antimicrobial cleaning agent to ensure the carpeting is clean. Proper cleaning won't cover up the odors from bacteria but instead will eliminate the bacteria and fungi and leave the carpeting restored.

Grout Cleaning

Bacteria and debris can easily get trapped in the tile grout, causing discoloration and odors. The home floor cleaning company can get into the cracks and crevices of the grout without doing any damage. The grout should be cleaned to prevent debris from rubbing the grout and wearing it down, as well as to preserve the color. You may want to have the grout resealed after it's cleaned. Once the grout is properly cleaned the company can go over the tile as well.

Hardwood Cleaning

Hardwood floors should be cleaned regularly by professionals to keep the wood in good condition. The wood can be cared for with cleaning and waxing, to help preserve the wood. Preserving your hardwood floors extends the life and the look of the flooring over time. Removing debris can help prevent scratches and damage.

If you have never taken the time to have your floors professionally cleaned, invest the money, and have all the floors cleaned throughout your house. This is going to make the house look maintained, remove dirt, grime, and odors, and help you feel like the floors are sanitary. Schedule to have this done annually or more if needed.
