Yeah it’s spring cleaning time….


I hate it.

I agree. What’s to like?  Well, I guess the finished product is nice, so here are a few tips to get you started on a few areas.

Windows: Don’t just wipe down the inside remove those smudges and winter dirt you cannot usually accomplish in the winter. Start by mixing hot water and distilled vinegar. Using a sponge and solution clean away the soiled area. Then using a squeegee clean from the top down while wiping the edge of the squeegee after each stroke. Do not do this in direct sunlight.

Window screens: Start by vacuuming both sides removing winter grime, then if they need further attention mix one tablespoon with detergent or white vinegar and scrub with a bristle brush. Should do the job.


Wood Floors: Wet clean your floors every two or three months. Mopping every week could actually be harmful to wood floors. Spot clean with a mild detergent diluted with warm water and let dry.

Carpets: Don’t be a fanatic. Unless you have a heavy traffic area or difficult spots you need clean carpets only a few times a year. That was easy….right?

Area rugs: Happy days! In most instances, you only need to clean area rugs once every four or five years. However, you can often spot clean pet stains, coffee, etc. with club soda. Easy Breezy.

Patio furniture: Wipe down those dusty chair cushions with a damp cloth. Use warm water and a mild dish detergent if especially dirty. Use the same mixture on the plastic or metal frames. Hose off the frames and let dry. For professional help call toll free 800-643-5850 or visit our website at
