3 Ways to Keep a Home Clean Longer
October 22, 2018
Once your clients have put in the elbow grease to make their home spotless, what can they do to keep it that way for a longer period of time? HouseLogic, a home improvement resource, recently highlighted some unusual ways to keep a home clean and gleaming.
Apply a car product to keep shower doors free from scum. Soap buildup could be eliminated by covering a glass shower door in the rain-repellant product that is used for car windshields (only advised for glass doors). The product creates an invisible barrier, causing water and soap to roll off.
Use protectants on furniture and carpets. Protective furniture sprays and carpet sealants, such as Scotchguard and Ultra-Guard, can help protect flooring against stains from spills. Use them once a year. They can cause liquids to remain on the surface instead of being absorbed into the flooring; they may also prevent some fabrics from fading and keep them resistant to mold and mildew.
Use a wet pumice stone to clean the oven. You might want to bypass traditional oven cleaners, which tend to give off strong fumes. Instead, use a wet pumice stone to scrape off any dirt and grease. It’s toxin-free. To wipe up an oven range, heat up a clean, damp sponge or cloth in a microwave for 30 seconds, and then wipe with—or without—a cleaning product.
