I have been a professional cleaner for more years than I care to tell you. Needless to say, when I walk into a home, I notice things other people may not. Cobwebs in the corners, dust piled up on the ceiling fans. It’s both a blessing and a curse. That being said, I would never share those details with people, that’s just what I notice. As I have said before, because I run a cleaning business, people will ask for my advice. I offer it only when asked and I make every effort to be general in my advice so as not to offend anyone. Sometimes it’s nice to see what other professional cleaning people offer as advice, even for me.
Today Show interviewed Jan M. Dougherty and Beth McGee, who both ran their own cleaning businesses for decades. Here are a couple of excerpts from their cleaning advice that I whole heartedly agree with:
” 8. Follow a cleaning “path.” Dougherty cleans from top to bottom, back of a room to front, and in “slices,” moving in one direction around the room, finishing the floor last. “By starting high in a room, all the dirt will fall down onto those things you have not cleaned yet,” Dougherty says.
The only thing I will add here is this, clear the clutter. All of those magazines, newspapers, mailers and paper sitting around make dust and will keep your rooms looking untidy. Which is also disruptive to your psyche, so get rid of it.
When the house gets too messy, it can be overwhelming to try to put it back in order. I do my very best to accommodate people’s budgets, but if you still don’t feel you can afford Riverside Cleaning Services, then, get you other family members to help. Give each person a task, and if need be, a bribe. Bribing works, I don’t care what they say, and designate a few slices of time each week for clean up.
That’s all I have for now.
