Carlene’s Cleaning Tips


Many people have asked me, “what is the difference between a general clean and a deep clean?” To keep it simple, a deep clean is a general clean…on steroids.

A general clean (which is usually a routine clean) includes those chores that you would do every week such as dust your furniture, change your bed sheets, clean your toilet, sink and tub, etc. A deep clean would take these routine chores to another level. Polishing furniture, washing mattress covers and airing mattresses and pillows, scrubbing shower/tub walls and doors, dusting light fixtures and window blinds.

Today, more than ever, business owners are concerned with financial overhead and expenses.  One of the first services that are cut, or that are never considered in the first place, is the hiring of a professional janitorial company.  This, however, is a misnomer  because of the reasons listed below:

Because hygiene affects health. Without a commercial cleaning service, some areas of your office will rarely (if ever) get a thorough cleaning. Do you often remember to sanitize the doorknobs? The light switches? The keyboards? Germs and bacteria gather in these (and many other) places, so it is important that they’re cleaned regularly to prevent illnesses.

It is a demonstrable fact that commercial offices and establishments should be kept clean. In fact, the law demands for establishments to have a clean and healthy environment. Apart from this, a clean workplace creates a pleasant and inviting ambiance. If you had to work in a dirty and cluttered office, you probably wouldn’t be too inspired to carry out your tasks.  Of course, customers and clients would be put off by an  untidy establishment and will opt to do business with your competition. So if you want to make your business grow, make sure that you provide a clean and healthy environment for your employees, customers, and clients.

Every house has a smell. It’s often a combination of the people who live there, their perfume, aftershave, the food they cook, and other things. Sometimes, however the smell is not flattering.  Pets, cigarette smoke, pungent foods—they can all make your house smell bad.  What to do when your house smells bad? Read on for Carlene’s best tips!

A clean and sanitary restroom is extremely important to your home and business. An unsanitary restroom often can lead to germs and mold that can affect allergies or bacteria and viruses  which cause diseases and is one reason why restrooms need to be cleaned daily. Repeat customers can be the direct result of sanitary or unsanitary restrooms. Employee productivity or un-productivity have been known to be affected indirectly by unclean restrooms. As a result, different aspects of your business can be affected by this one essential idea.
