Keeping Your Business Immaculate

When we installed a suggestion box in the entryway of our business, I was amazed to see how many customers responded. After we started going through the suggestions, we realized that there was one request that we kept seeing--the need for a cleaner store. We decided to make a few changes to keep our place cleaner, including hiring a professional cleaning service. The results were incredible. Customers started to comment on how clean our place was, instead of the need for dramatic changes. We also noticed a boost in our sales because customers felt more comfortable in our store.

From Blinds To Mold - How To Get Your Window Spic And Span

by Lee Porter

The windows on your home serve multiple benefits, from allowing natural light into the house, to adding some aesthetic appeal to the exterior. In an effort to maximize these benefits, you must keep your windows clean at all times. This can be difficult with them exposed to both indoor and outdoor elements. A dirty window can take a considerable amount of work to get it completely clean. You have to pay attention to everything from the window treatments to the frame around the window to the glass itself.

Eliminating Streaks Across Your Windows

There are few things worse when cleaning your windows and the finished product is a bunch of streaks along the glass. In an effort to avoid and forgo adding additional chemicals to your home, you should clean your windows with a combination of equal parts vinegar to equal parts water. The smell will usually linger for a short time before it goes away permanently so you don't have to worry about the smell staying around for long. Once you have your solution mixed, you can then choose to use either a squeegee or a newspaper to wipe down the windows. Paper towels and rags will leave streaks and fuzz balls left around. In an effort to tell where streaks are, you want to clean one side horizontally and the other side vertically. 

Cleaning Blinds With Care

Blinds are a major part of the look of the window and can be very fragile. When cleaning blinds, you have to be careful not to damage them. One of the biggest burdens with keeping blinds clean is the dust that can easily accumulate on them. Before cleaning them, you want to make sure any dust is removed.  Dusting your blinds should occur on a weekly basis, while full on cleaning should be done once or twice a year. After dusting, you should clean them depending on what type of material they are made of. If you have fabric blinds, you should use an attachment on your vacuum cleaner. For metal blinds, you can wash them in the bathtub to get them clean and for wood blinds, you want to use a microfiber cloth to get them clean.

Removing Mold Off Your Windows

It is not uncommon to experience some mold on your window seals. With all the moisture and condensation that can accumulate on your windows, it is important to eliminate the mold as soon as possible. Mold can cause a plethora of health problems for you and your family the longer you are exposed to it. To remove the mold, you will want to clean it off using a toothbrush. This will help scrub the area and should do a good job of removing mold spores. To clean the area, you want to dip the toothbrush in a mixture of bleach and water. You don't need a lot of bleach to get the job done. For help with more difficult cleaning tasks, contact a company like Service King.
