Do you want to maintain the benefits of the cleaning for as long as possible? Of course!

Here are a few tips to help you maintain the clean.

Avoid Clutter

Repeat after me: “Clutter attracts dust bunnies.”  After you’ve had your professional cleaning, resist the urge to let things pile up. An easy way to avoid clutter is to make clutter “homeless.”  If you tend to use a corner table as a catch all, for example, try putting a plant there instead.

Make your Bed

Making your bed every morning not only starts your day with a clean slate, you will breathe a sigh of relief when you step back into your bedroom at the end of a long day. Speaking of the end of the long day …

No Sleep Until the Kitchen Sink is Clean

Before going to bed, make sure the kitchen sink is clean. Put the dishes in the dishwasher, or better yet, wash and put them away before going to bed.

Take 30

Taking 30 minutes a day to sweep or vacuum the floor, dust your furniture and handle other small maintenance tasks means you can prolong the clean until your next visit from your professional house cleaning service. Speaking of professional house cleaning …

Increase the Frequency of your Professional House Cleaning

Studies show people spend 685 hours a year – that’s 28.54 days! – cleaning their home. Perhaps the best way to prolong the benefits of your professional house cleaning service is to schedule more frequent cleanings.  Most of our clients schedule weekly or bi-weekly cleanings and couldn’t be happier with the results.

As one client says:

Great service for a busy family … I only wish we could clean our house as fast as they do, remarkable! Read the full review here.

Another says:

20 years and still happy! I started with S&S when I realized I couldn’t keep up with my housework, a child, and full-time job. The team came weekly for years and now after the kids have gone, they come every other week. It’s been a great relationship and I trust them completely. Read our 60+ 5 star reviews here.
