There are magazines for decorating and cleaning advice like Real Simple, Better Homes & Gardens, Martha Stewart Living, and they each have a bit of a different slant on organizing, decorating and cleaning our homes. While we here at Riverside pretty much have cleaning down to a science, it never hurts to try to keep up with new trends and learn different methods of cleaning and organizing.
Today I found a great post on BHG that you might enjoy:
” When to Hire a Professional
Consider hiring a professional window cleaner once a year, especially if you have a two-story house or storm windows. Hire a gutter- or roof-cleaning service in late fall. Choose services that are bonded and insured, and get at least three references. Depending on your time and house size, rent the necessary carpet-cleaning equipment, or hire a service. If you are renting equipment, steam-clean all carpets at the same time to save money. ”
At Riverside we will deep clean your entire home, and power wash the exterior as well as wash windows. For other services like carpet cleaning and tile cleaning, we are in a BNI group that is reputable, does a great job and takes great pride in his work. His name is Dean LaPierre with Heaven’s Best.
People sometimes take their homes for granted, and after they have lived there for a number of years, they don’t notice the small signs of neglect. If a home is not kept up and properly maintained, it will not fare as well as one that has been taken care of. So every so often take a step back, look at your home as though it were someone else’s and put aside some money to hire a professional to clean it inside and out at least one a year.
Your home is your castle, and for many of us it is also the most significant investment you will ever make. Take care of it, or better yet, let us help you take care of it!!
