Did Summer Do A Job On Your House?

Posted on

Are you still recovering from the busy summer you had? Maybe you had a mountain of out-of-town guests plus a bunch of your children's friends over every day. If you have a swimming pool, your carpet might still be suffering from water than was brought into the house. Or, even kids playing in the water sprinklers could do the same thing. Next came getting the kids ready for school and attending things like orientations or Meet The Teacher evenings. 

Whatever it was that left you with a house that needs a lot of attention, you need a plan of action. Maybe things have just recently slowed down and you are now ready to clean your house in a big way. Here are some ideas that might help you.

Carpet Cleaning Services - Even if you vacuumed the carpet many times, maybe you have the full realization that your carpets aren't really clean. Besides water the kids brought in, maybe your out-of-town guests had dogs who were too confused to do their business outside. And, of course, there are those spills that occurred almost daily, right? Your carpet might look really nice, but you know better.

No matter what made your carpet dirty, have you considered arranging for carpet cleaning services? Having professionals like the ones at Superior Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Inc clean your carpets will more than likely be a lot more affordable than you thought it would be. The cleaners will have state-of-the-art equipment to do a thorough job. In addition they'll use cleaning products that won't damage your carpets. By the time the cleaners finish the job, your carpets will look like new. Think of arranging for the cleaners to return on a regular basis, about every three months.

Set A Cleaning Schedule - If you work outside or if you're a busy stay-at-home parent, think of cleaning your house over a period of time. For example, get up fifteen minutes early to clean a bathroom a day. Or choose a chore that you can accomplish each day. For example, the dusting and vacuuming might be done on Tuesday, the kitchen on Wednesday, and so on. Think of reserving about an hour for all the family members to pitch in and do their share.

Once your house is totally cleaned, consider keeping the schedule that you originally set. By doing that, you should be able to maintain the clean house without a great deal of effort.
