When taking the services of a home cleaning company, ensure that their cleaners are insured and they provide all cleaning supplies and equipment necessary for the job. A good idea is to ask the company whether their home cleaners are vetted and customer recommended.

Tips for Mopping Timber Floors
Timber flooring is very appealing, but you’ll have to take extra care to maintain it in good shape. Avoid the use of hot water on wood floors, and wipe out all traces of water after cleaning. Wet patches will stain the wood and can even result in expanded and warped boards.
Mats are to be placed at outside and inside of exterior doors to avoid dirt and germs entering your home. If you don’t remove the shoes at the doorstep, the tracked-in dirt could spoil a wood floor's finish.
Put floor protectors under furniture and rugs in children’s play areas to avoid getting marks and scratches on the wood floor. While vacuuming, give utmost care to prevent scratches- use only floor-brush attachment to the vacuum cleaner, not the beater bar attachment. Ensure that you are using the correct mop and mopping technique while cleaning timber floors.
One should understand that the weekly dust mopping won’t remove the stubborn dirt, pet stains, oil, and grime build up and scratch marks on a wooden flooring. For this, take the services of a professional home cleaning company which uses appropriate cleaning products. Trying to clean a very dirty wooden floor yourself with the help of DIY tips using sandpaper, steel wool, or harsh chemicals will result in permanent damage to the soft finish.
Removing Germs from Your Kitchen
Make it a point to keep your kitchen tables and countertops clutter free. When cooking raw meat and fish, avoid using cloth towels as they hold more germs- keep disposable towels handy. After preparing meat and fish, it’s advisable to disinfect your kitchen sink to prevent the growth of germs and harmful bacteria. Keep the knives, spoons and plates dry so as to avoid mould growth.
Kitchen floor is another vulnerable spot easily infected by large colonies of germs, so daily cleaning is a must. Make use of an antibacterial and disposable mopping system to make your kitchen floors sparkling without germs.
Lastly, clean all the surfaces in the kitchen and dispose of food leftovers after the meals. Wash the dishes or put them in the dishwasher. Once all areas including stovetop are cleaned, clean and disinfect the sink and faucet. Remember to regularly clean the sponges if you use them in the kitchen.
Organising Your Bedroom
Every day morning one should make the bed, and declutter the bedroom. Put away dirty clothes, and ensure that reading materials, glasses, dishes, toys, etc. go to their proper places.
If you have sufficient time and the mood to clean the bedroom yourself rather than calling a professional cleaner, then do the following on a weekly basis:
Dust the dressers, vanities, nightstand, picture frames, armours and chests; sweep and clean the floor- or if carpets and rugs are there, vacuum them.
And on a monthly basis, you can do the following to keep the bedroom neat and tidy:
Remove the curtains and wash them. Rotate and flip the mattress to prevent sagging in the areas mostly used while sleeping – for this, rotate the mattress 90 degrees and then raise it on its edge, and lower the mattress over so that the other side comes upward. Don’t forget to vacuum underneath the bed and open the windows and doors to allow all the dust and dirty air out.
