"Spring" Cleaning in January!
Why not get a head start on your spring cleaning and start it in January! If you think about it it makes more sense to do it now, New Year, new start…nice clean home! When it’s time for the Christmas decorations to come down why not use this as an opportunity to give everything a good deep clean!
In January, its cold and dark outside so most of us spend a lot more time indoors, so why not get productive and get started on the cleaning. You will have more time to be inside and enjoy your lovely fresh clean home, as let’s face it when the spring arrives you may want to get outside in the fresh air and enjoy being outdoors after being stuck in all winter!
Decluttering just after Christmas is the ideal time to do it, you will feel motivated to get things done, out with the old in with the new! New Year, new start!
Having a good clear out could help you feel better, cluttered house, cluttered mind…get this “spring clean” done in the new year and you will feel super accomplished …a clean,
a tidy house could help you towards a tidy de-cluttered mind also!
Start with one room at a time, you will probably have new presents that you have received for Christmas and will need to create room for them so now is the ideal time to be ruthless…if you haven’t worn or used something for at least 12 months, now is the perfect time to get rid of the old stuff and make room for the new!
This is also the time of year when everyone has coughs and colds so what better time to deep clean your home, disinfect your home and get rid of all those nasty winter lingering germs!
If this all seems too much of a task to take on on your own, why not give us a call we can clean (whilst you are at work if you would prefer) so you will come back to a clean and sparkling home.

Getting your home ready and clean for Christmas!
Christmas is a time that most people will be spending at home with friends and family, a wonderful time to spend together with homemade meals, fun party games and chatting around the fire, so here are a few tips to make sure your home is clean and prepared for visitors.
Here are a few tips to get your home sparkling and ready for Christmas:
- Cleaning your windows: If you are planning on decorating your windows for Christmas, you might want to wipe the glass with alcohol, this will ensure the glass is clean and ready for you to stick those snowflakes on and create some Christmas magic from outside.
- If you are having guests stay over in the Christmas holidays, make sure your guest rooms and closets are spick and span. Guests could be bringing bags, suitcases and big winter coats so you will need space for them to store all their things instead of cluttering up the hallway, make sure closets are clean and cobweb free. In the guest room, dust vacuum and prepare a set of clean bed linen so your house guests will feel comfortable and cosy during their stay.
- Over Christmas you may spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing meals so now is a good time to be cleaning out the fridge and throw out any old out of date products, make sure worktops and hobs are spotless and give that oven a good clean, this will help get the best out of your appliances and get better results when preparing the Christmas food. If your oven hasn’t been cleaned in a while, it could be a good idea to call in the professionals.
- Cleaning the bathroom and the toilet is not a very festive job but unfortunately, it must be done! Pour some heavy-duty cleaner into the toilet bowl, leave it to remove the stubborn dirt whilst you clean the mirrors with glass cleaner or again you can use alcohol for a smear-free shine. Wipe the tiles clean AFTER you take a shower the hot steam will make it easier to remove the dirt.
- And lastly, if you do not have time to do any of this, due to all the other festivities why not give us a call and let us do all the hard work for you! Call us on 0121 314 8828 We are here for all your cleaning needs!
August Cleaning Tip! Dirty Microwave
If your microwave isn’t looking its best after continued use and various splattering’s of combustible food, don’t be concerned - the oven can be cleaned for free in a few minutes. Just put a heat-proof container of water with half a lemon and its juices in the microwave on a high setting for a minute or two. Leave the mixture in the microwave with the door closed for 5 minutes for the steam to do its work, then easily wipe down the inside of your microwave. The lemon will leave your microwave and entire kitchen smelling clean and fresh!
July's Cleaning Tip
The oven must be sprayed with oven cleaner the night before to be effectively cleaned.
Make sure all sides are sprayed, the bottom is sprayed, and most important: spray the top inside of the oven. The top inside of the oven is often neglected when sprayed, please ensure this is sprayed properly to get the hard to clean upper reaches of the oven cleaned. Leave overnight.
The grills can be taken out of the oven and slipped into a large plastic garbage bag, spray down both sides of the grills with oven cleaner in the bag, close with a twist tie and leave overnight.
The next day, a damp sponge is effective in mopping up the oven cleaner and grease, keep rinsing the sponge in a bucket of warm water with a little dish soap. The grills can be rinsed off in the bathtub or the backyard preferably if you have one.
Scouring pads, ie. S.O.S. pads can then be used to clean the hard baked on areas where a lot of greasy drippings collect.
Cleaning your oven is very messy. Make sure you line your floor liberally with newspapers as the drippings will seep out of the oven door and run down the outside of the oven. Wear heavy duty rubber gloves and even a face mask covering your nose and mouth as the fumes will be strong.
If you would like us to clean your regular oven we will eyeball the damage, use a fast-acting oven spray and get to work. Even the dirtiest ovens should be able to be cleaned effectively this way.
If you have a self-cleaning oven, simply open the oven door and read the instructions. It will ask you to heat the oven to a certain temperature, for a certain time, let it cool, then wipe off the ash easily with a damp sponge. Keep rinsing the sponge in a bucket of warm water and a bit of dish soap. We can supply this service.
