How Clean Is Your House?: 5 Cleaning Tips

759.

你的房子有多干净。就像,真的,你的房子有多干净?就像,如果一个专业的清洁剂走进你的房子,他们会想到什么?

Of course, I’m not perfect, and my house isn’t perfect. But as a person with over 15 years of professional cleaning experience, I know what to look for quickly in a space to assess just how clean it is.

If you’re wondering why I’m telling you this, it’s because I want to give you a professional cleaner’s perspective so you can learn how to clean like a professional! That way, when you are assessing your own space, you’ll know exactly what areas to hit to get your home cleaned quickly and cleaned well.

Today we’re talking home scents, clean floors, wall cleaning, and more! So let’s see how clean your house really is.

1. Home Scents

对我来说,进入某人的家是一种完整的感官体验。这是关于视觉,声音,气味和触摸。加上,希望他们发出小吃,然后这也是味道!

One of the first things I notice when I walk into someone’s home is the smell. Of course, everyone’s home has a scent, but we tend not to notice what our own homes smell like because we’re used to it. Febreze actually coined the term noseblind, meaning that we are “blind” to the smell in our own spaces.

Pets, food, and lack of cleaning can all add to a less than pleasant odor that a professional cleaner will be able to detect immediately. So, put your smelling nose on and deal with any unpleasant odors in your home by cleaning the source thoroughly. And for an extra oomph, check out myDIY Holiday Home Scents文章,我告诉你如何为假期提供自己的气味。

2.清洁楼层

我们的地板是我们家中最大的表面。它们是最低的表面(Duh,Melissa)。但这意味着你有很多楼层要清洁,重力不在你身边。任何溢出,污垢,灰尘,碎片等,都落到地板上,意思是楼层迅速变脏。

当我走进家里,我的眼睛向前看。我可以通过看一个地板来说,真正快速地讲述它是多么干净或脏。我家的楼层是浅色色彩的,我选择了这一点,因为他们没有像较深的楼层那样呈现污垢和灰尘。

例如,如果你赤脚走动,深层楼层更容易显示出占地面积比轻的地板。地板的终点也会影响地板如何出现污垢。闪亮,光泽的结束迅速显示甚至小印花或一点灰尘。所以,如果你有深层或有光泽的结束,你就可以为你砍掉你的工作。但是,无论哪种方式,保持你的地板清洁是朝着保持整个空间清洁的正确方向的另一台阶跃。

3. Dusty Surfaces

You’ve probably seen a character in a movie or TV show, or maybe just your mother-in-law, wipe their finger on a surface and look disgustedly at their dusty finger. It’s a pretty rude move, but we should be doing this more often in our own spaces.

And honestly, you can tell with a quick glance—no need for the finger swipe. Knowing where dust likes to hide is helpful here. When dusting, a professional cleaner knows exactly what areas to pay extra attention to.

你应该寻找什么是被遗忘的地方。听起来幽灵般的,但我只是指地幔,踢脚板,通风口,窗台和灯具。快速浏览应该能够告诉您这些地方是否需要注意您和您的粉末,特别是如果您有白色底板。

保持在这些领域的顶部是将额外抛光放在家中的好方法,这些地区正是专业清洁剂将是直列的。需要更多的粉尘救命吗?我有一篇文章:10 Handy Dusting Tips.

4. Wall Cleaning

许多人忘记了他们家中的清洁墙和接触点。并听着,你可以尽可能多地清洁或尽可能少。但如果你想通过专业清洁剂的眼睛看到你的家,你需要注意清洁墙壁。

我总是扫描墙壁,以及高流量的接触点,如灯开关和门把手在清洁时。我在这些地区寻找指纹和其他标记。如果您的家中有孩子,您将想要检查指纹下降。我喜欢掌握我的手,所以我可以发现那些我的女儿经常离开的粘性手印。

Before Chad and I moved into our home, it was home to a household with five children. And let me tell you, the walls looked as if there was one long Adidas stripe around the whole house. It was all the kids’ handprints!

墙壁不是每周都需要清洁的那些东西之一(谢谢,清洁神!)。但是,当是时候清洁它们时,阅读我的文章,如何清洁墙壁和踢脚板。别忘了,超级多功能Maker’s Mopcan get floors, baseboards, and even walls and ceilings looking their best!

5. Cleaning Surfaces

I know it sounds a little obvious to say you should clean surfaces. Like, we all know we have to clean surfaces. But specifically, I mean surfaces that get grimy buildup like soap scum on the sink, grease on the backsplash, toothpaste spray on the mirror, you get the idea.

I define grime as any kind of film or buildup that’s on a surface. If there is a minimal amount of grime, you can probably spray with a cleaner, let sit for a few minutes, and wipe. Easy peasy. But if there’s a lot of grime built up, you might need specialty products and tools.

That’s why it’s good to tackle these surfaces more frequently, so you don’t have to go out and buy those extra products and use that extra elbow grease. How I assess surfaces is I look for shiny, reflective surfaces because they show dirt and grime the most.

我还通过执行我所谓的眼睛级测试来检查表面。达到表面的眼睛水平,直接在表面上看起来。当你这样做时,就像你在五个方面看到了东西。我喜欢这个测试;它永远不会谎言。这是我们专业清洁工使用的全新观点,用于起床,并有效地消除它。

If you’re looking at a vertical surface like a stainless steel refrigerator, you can stand in front of it and shift from side to side, using the light reflecting off it to spot grime, fingerprints, etc. These are both great ways to detect grime and start tackling those surfaces.
