1.Make an action plan

You may find it fun to clean up on a plan, but when a basic cleaning is delayed for a long time, it will take a long time. If you want to act as effectively as possible and if possible to end in one day, rather than three, it is important to plan from where you will begin, how you will proceed and, above all, allocate responsibilities between several people so that everyone can act in a particular sector the service room.

2.Before proceeding with the cleaning itself, take care to dispose of the stored household appliances and old furniture

We are all filling the basements and the ceilings with the furniture and household appliances that we have replaced with new, modern and above all working ones. People have the strange ability to cling to their belongings, and even when it is clear they will never use them again, they take them back to the basement in the hope that someone else will use them again.

[Tweet “Find someone or people to give your old furniture – so they will come into use at least.”]

Hire a licensed company to export the electrical appliances for use if it is impossible to repair and give it to someone who needs them. Under no circumstances, export massive items to the waste container in front of the unit, because you can get a salty fine.

3.It is time to take care of old newspapers, magazines and books

Image of house cleaningAmong the things we build on ceilings and basements are piles of paper, in the form of books and old newspapers and magazines. There is hardly a need to tell you that books do not deserve such fate, so instead of letting them rot or serve rodents, you better donate them to a library. Newspapers and magazines should not be stored in the attics or in the basements, because in the event of a fire, they will keep the fire longer than you want. Hand over them for secondary raw materials or just burn them.

4.Once you dispose of wasteful things, start arranging

You’ve already eliminated the bulky buckets that occupied more than half the area in the basement or at the ceiling, which means it’s time to turn the row among the remaining items. Sort items by type and application – this will help you find what you are looking for later on. To store the remaining items better, store them in sturdy wooden or plastic boxes. Write down the boxes to know what they are looking for when looking for something.

5.Sprinkle cement floors with water before sweeping

Once you have cleaned and arranged the room it is time for the last step – sweeping the floor. The dust that has been gathering on the floor for years will rise when you start to move, and apart from choking you and making your eyes stick to the walls of the whole room. Few amount of water will help you get all the dust away without inhaling and spreading it anywhere. If you have carpets is better call a professional company that offer carpet end of tenancy cleaning.

 

 


Fresh air, clean home, happy people

Let’s talk about… cleaning routines. What are you doing on a regular basis: vacuum-cleaning and dust removal? Are you washing the windows, are you arranging the closet? Are you moving the furniture so that you can clean behind them? Are you cleaning the bathtub? Or the coffee-maker? Or the carpet? We are so different that we definitely have different cleaning routines as well. But there are some basics – yeah, you cannot convince yourself that you are maintaining your home well if for instance, the air in your house is not that fresh? In fact, have you ever thought about the air? Seriously? This is not a regular task, it is even not on the end of tenancy cleaning checklist, though if the landlord arrives and notices that you have been smoking the property, you will have to say goodbye to the money from the security deposit instantly. And now as we are aware of the whole fresh air situation, the real question is what can we do?


The dirtiest places in your home

I have always thought that I am a fastidious person, who tries to keep everything perfectly clean at home, every room, every spot, every corner and every surface. I am that lady who always walks after the children reminding them not to touch the walls, not to go with muddy shoes on the beautifully white carpet. Yes, I am the same lady who can spend a nice relaxing day, shopping, reading a book and chilling, and then I can also clean the bathroom till 2 a.m. I am the one, who cleans the ceramic hobs right after I have made the pancakes on an easy Sunday morning and I am the same lady who cleans the coffee maker every week. And yes my home looks better than the average one. But lately, I understood that I was totally deluded. After I decided to hire SYK professional cleaners for a spring cleaning, as many experts tell that regular deep professional cleaning is what every home needs, I was amazed. And I won’t talk about the brilliant service, which I expected, but about some little details. They arrived fully equipped and ready to perform THE cleaning and if I have to be honest, I have never ever cleaned in my entire life some of the places they took care of.
