Atlanta Spring Cleaning Checklist – Bathrooms

Posted on March 27, 2013. Filed under: Bathroom Cleaning Tips, Household Tips | Tags: , , |

bathroom cleaning AtlantaIn this installment of our Atlanta Spring Cleaning Room by Room series, we tackle the bathroom. Yes, the bathroom – where soap scum, stained grout, and the pernicious boy bathroom smell live.

Although the benefits of a clean home are outstanding, spring cleaning can be a tedious, time-consuming task. That’s why I suggest tackling one room at a time – perhaps an area each weekend.

Of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t suggest the best way to savor the benefits of a spring-cleaned home without the work – hire a professional maid service! Here’s what one of our clients had to say:

The Best Cleaning I’ve Had in 15 Years

Sponge and Sparkle was recommended to me by my Sister in law. She loves them and I see why! I needed above and beyond the average type of cleaning. Sponge and Sparkle came through beautifully. They cleaned everything everywhere! I have 3 kids, 2 large dogs, and a long haired cat. It was not an easy job! For me it was the best cleaning job I have ever had and I have used housekeepers for 15 years! I am going to continue to use them as my house remains on the market. They’re an asset now I would never let them go! I would recommend them to anyone!…

Kitchen Cleaning Tip – Your Kitchen Spring Cleaning Checklist

Posted on March 21, 2013. Filed under: Household Tips, Kitchen Cleaning | Tags: , |

Spring Cleaning Ahead? We Can HelpWant to experience an emotional boost? Want to savor the experience of having a weight lifted off your shoulders? Well, a good, thorough spring cleaning is the answer.

Here’s the downside – spring cleaning takes time. Unless you have a long block of time to dedicate to the process, you are better off attacking one room at a time.  Over the next several weeks, I’ll share checklists to help you get your spring cleaning done – one room at a time.  This blog post focuses on the kitchen.

Of course, if you’d rather be somewhere else, consider hiring a professional house cleaning service. To read what we include in our Atlanta detail cleaning services, click here.

Here’s what a customer has to say:

Best Deep Cleaning In (Atlanta)

Raina and her crew do a fantastic job. I just knew when I spoke to her that I was working with a pro and they delivered in a big way. My house is not just clean. It sparkles! I would recommend these folks to anyone who seriously wants their house clean. They are the best from start to finish.

Kitchen

  • De-clutter first, getting rid of any dishes and utensils you are no longer using. Use this mantra as a guide: “have nothing in your home that you do not believe to be either beautiful or useful.”
  • Before replacing items in the cabinets, clean the shelves and drawers.
  • Wash down all kitchen appliance exteriors and counter tops.
  • Clean the inside of your microwave.
  • Scour the sink, including the drains.
  • Wipe down cabinet fronts.
  • Move appliances to clean the floor underneath.
  • Mop the floors.
  • Scrub stove-top and drip pans.
  • Clean the top and insides of your refrigerator and freezer.
