10 Signs You Should Move to Green Cleaning

Posted on January 7, 2016. Filed under: Atlanta House Cleaning, Green Cleaning | Tags: , , , , |

Carrying Green Cleaning Supplies

According to the Centers for Disease Control, chemicals in and around the home can poison people or pets and can cause long-term health effects. Every 13 seconds, a poison control center in the United States answers a call about a possible poisoning. More than 90 percent of these emergencies occur in the home, and exposure to cleaning products is one of the most common causes.

If one or more of the following signs applies to you, it’s time to seriously think about abandoning the use of chemical household cleaning products in favor of non-toxic products made from natural ingredients:

1. You have children.

Anyone who has a young child knows how innately curious they can be. Sadly, cleaning products are among the most common causes of poisoning among young children. Even ordinary liquid dish soap can be dangerous if swallowed by a child, since many brands contain formaldehyde and ammonia. In addition, children, whose immune systems are still developing, can suffer serious health effects from the hazardous chemicals in conventional products.

2. You have pets.

According to the Pet Poison Helpline, some cleaning products, such as drain cleaners, concentrated dish washing soap, oven cleaners, and toilet cleaners, can be really dangerous to dogs and cats. Your pets could suffer chemical burns if they accidentally lick or are exposed to these chemicals. Of course, we humans are also at risk if we improperly use or handle these products.

3. You have asthma or other breathing issues.

Some cleaners contain compounds that significantly aggravate asthma symptoms. Exposure to these chemicals has even been known to cause otherwise healthy people to develop breathing problems. According to the Environmental Working Group, a highly respected advocacy organization, more than half the cleaning products they tested contain ingredients that can harm the lungs, while 22 percent can cause asthma.

4. You or someone in your household has chemical sensitivities.

Symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, skin rashes, headaches, and more may disappear once you stop using conventional cleaning chemicals, which contain perfumes and dyes, among other chemicals, to which many people have allergic reactions.

5. You care about the quality of the air in your home.

The use of conventional cleaning products can contribute to higher pollution indoors than outdoors. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, many products, especially aerosols, emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that have been associated with a host of health problems including damage to the liver, kidneys, and central nervous system.

6. You care about the environment.

If you care about the Earth’s environment, it’s time to switch to green cleaning. In addition to improving your indoor air quality, you’ll be helping to reduce pollution to our waterways, minimize your impact on ozone depletion and global climate change, reduce waste, and conserve resources. In fact, some products such as toilet bowl cleaners are so caustic that unused product must be disposed of as hazardous household waste in some jurisdictions.

7. You don’t like bacteria.

“Antimicrobial” cleaners actually don’t work any better than regular cleaners. Research reported in Scientific American and elsewhere indicates that some antibacterial products even foster the development of resistant bacteria. For example, after spraying and wiping an antibacterial cleaner over a kitchen counter, active chemicals linger behind and continue to kill bacteria, but not necessarily all of them, and the surviving bacteria develop a tolerance and continue to flourish.

8. You dislike strong chemical odors.

Many household cleaners have added perfumes to disguise the bad odors from their ingredients. The natural ingredients in many green cleaning products are either odor-neutral or have a pleasant odor.

9. You’re budget conscious.

To boost sales, some manufacturers market cleaning products as designed to tackle specific cleaning applications, but the formulations are essentially the same. White vinegar and baking soda are some of the most effective, safe, and least expensive cleaning products around. They can be used to clean bathrooms, kitchens, floors, windows, and more.

10. You want to set a good example.

If you want embrace a healthy, environmentally conscious lifestyle that sets a good example for your family and friends, switch to green cleaning. Your leadership will contribute towards a sustainable future.
Making the switch to green cleaning is easy. Start using eco-friendly products and you’ll soon appreciate how well they work. You won’t regret it.

What our Customers Say

My house is CLEAN!

We have had Sponge & Sparkle for a few years now and I am a fussy homeowner. They do a fantastic job–coming home after a hard week, it is so wonderful to have everything so clean it sparkles. Baseboards, blinds, all the surfaces are spotless. And they come on time every time. Great cleaning service.

These cleaners shine!

Walking into my house after Sponge & Sparkle had cleaned it was fantastic! They cleaned every nook and cranny, steamed the cabinets, got the cobwebs from our vaulted ceilings – even set my daughters doll on a pillow with a blanket. These folks care about what they do and it shows! They do a fantastic job, are reliable, honest and a pleasure to work with. My house was a mess and they fixed it!

A tough job, done well

Due to health issues, I have neglected housecleaning in my apartment for far too long. I found Sponge and Sparkle here on Kudzu.com, made an appointment, and they did an excellent job of a really difficult task.

Feng Shui 101

Posted on August 6, 2015. Filed under: Clearing Clutter | Tags: , , , , |

content

Whether you realize it or not, your surroundings affect your mind, body, and spirit. Some buildings and rooms evoke a peaceful, positive feeling, while others can evoke stress, depression, or anxiety.

The Chinese practice of Feng Shui addresses this phenomenon. This ancient interior design system provides guidelines for placing and orienting furniture and objects to enhance your personal energy flow.

There are Fung Shui consultants who will help you transform your living space but there are also many things you can do on your own by take a good look at your living space, room by room. (Doing this with a good friend could help you stay objective and proactive).

Things that inhibit good energy flow include:

  • Clutter
  • A misaligned or poorly maintained front door—sticky locks; squeaky hinges.
  • Unkempt landscaping and lawn.
  • Papers, books, or toys scattered all over.
  • Unmade beds.
  • A messy, disorganized kitchen.

Removing even such minor, daily irritations enhances feelings of calm and well-being.

Other easy things you can do to enhance the Feng Shui in your home include:

  • Making the main entrance clutter-free, open, and inviting.
  • Ensuring good air quality—open windows when possible; regularly replace HVAC air filters; and strategically place air-purifying plants.
  • Ensuring good quality light—allow as much natural light into your home as possible and consider using full-spectrum lights.
  • Positioning your bed farthest from the door but where you’re still able to see the doorway and anyone approaching. This enhances feelings of security and peace.
  • Positioning your desk so that you can see who’s coming.

Take steps to reorient furniture, de-clutter, organize, clean, and fix the stuff in your living space and you will begin to understand the feel-good benefits of Feng Shui.

6 Reasons People Don’t Hire House Cleaning Services

Posted on October 24, 2014. Filed under: About Sponge & Sparkle, Time Management | Tags: , , |

 

atlanta maid service picture of cleaning ceiling fans
You know you’d like to hire a house cleaning service.

You can’t wait to feel the way our client Judy does:

… coming home after a hard week, it is so wonderful to have everything so clean it sparkles.

So, what’s stopping you? If you haven’t hired a professional Atlanta house cleaning service yet, one of the following myths is probably getting in the way.

Myth #1 – “They” Will Judge Me

My team is there for one reason – to get your home sparkling clean.  My customers provide the business that I have had since 1981 so that I can employ a wonderful team of Sparklers and stimulate the economy.

In short, we are not judgmental. We are grateful your home needs to be cleaned.

As our client Bantley writes:

I have been using this cleaning service for at least 22 years. Their employees don’t come and go but stay with the company, which gives me a great degree of comfort…. I feel like they are part of our family!

 

Myth #2 – I Need to Clean a Little – First

This myth is related to first one.  A trained, professional house cleaner can get your home top to bottom clean in a fraction of the time. So don’t pile the stress on yourself, call the experts!

Myth #3 – House Cleaning Services are Only for Rich People

This is a uniquely North American myth. House cleaning services are not just for the wealthy. In fact, in most countries around the world, middle class families have a full-time housekeeper (and chauffeur) on staff.

 

As our client writes:

They are always on time, never miss an appointment, and are friendly. I could probably have an individual (instead of a commercial group) for less, but I feel like this is so well-run and reliable that it is worth it. Also, I get the sense that they treat their employees well, which matters a lot to me.

Myth #4 – It’s for Lazy People

House cleaning services are for people who want to work smarter, not harder. What is a better use of 2 hours – spending time with friends and family or cleaning the bathroom?

Imagine – what could you do with an extra 28 days a year? That’s the average amount of time (685 hours) spent cleaning.

Myth # 5 – I Don’t Want People In My “Stuff”

The only time you need worry about security is if you hire a “trunk slammer” and not a professional cleaning service. All of our employees go through background checks and training. In addition, our employee retention is 15 to 20 times the industry average. While the industry turnover is 3 to 4 months, our employees stay with us an average of 5 years – and many have been with us for much longer.

As our client Ann writes:

They are always careful with our “stuff”–no breakage in 15 plus years. They are totally flexible when I need to change our regular cleaning day. And they are so very nice and friendly!

 

Myth #6 – My Mother Could Do It – Why Can’t I?

Life is much more complicated than it was even 30 years ago. More information, more toys, more choices, a longer commute and a much longer workday means you are juggling more than your parents ever dreamed.

Isn’t it time you stopped measuring yourself against an unobtainable standard?

Make a list of what you are going to do with an extra 685 hours a year and call Sponge & Sparkle at (404-633-9652) to get your home sparkling clean.

You deserve it!

Want More Romance In Your Marriage? Here’s A Surprising Answer

Posted on February 6, 2013. Filed under: Household Tips | Tags: , |

atlanta maid serviceAs Valentine’s Day approaches, thoughts turn to romance.

Would you like more romance in your marriage? An in-depth study of close to 7,000 married couples found a surprising solution – it turns out that married couples with cleaner homes have more sex.

The study suggests that  the connection between the willingness to do household tasks together is a general indicator of a symbol of shared commitment to the home and thereby to each other.  Also, it says the reward of a serene well-tended home in and of itself may be conducive to intimacy.

Here’s an idea: hire a professional Atlanta maid service so that you spend less time on household chores, which means more time for intimacy.

Don’t skip the traditional Valentine’s Day gifts. Add a gift certificate for a maid service, or better yet, surprise your spouse with a sparkling clean home!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Top Timesavers for Work At Home Moms (WAHM)

Posted on August 20, 2012. Filed under: Household Tips | Tags: , |

IMG_2874.JPGThere are many perks to telecommuting or running a business from home.

You can work, manage the household, and take care of kids without ever leaving the house – or so you think.

What many moms think will be a blessing, turns out being a curse where you are never away from work.  You are always parenting, and always cleaning.  It can turn into quite a juggling act.

Still, with determination and planning, you can make it work.

Here are some invaluable tools you can use to make working from home work for you and your family:

WAHM Timesaver 1 – A Crock Pot

Have you heard? Crock pots are cool again. Put your ingredients (fresh of frozen) in one by noon and dinner is ready by five. While the meal cooks, your home is filled with mouth-watering smells. You would be surprised by how delightfully delicious crock pot meals can be.  With thousands of Crock Pot recipes online, you will never need to have the same meal twice.  You may find yourself buying a second Crock Pot in no time, and a rice cooker too.

WAHM Timesaver 2 – A Monthly Cleaning Service

Think about much you can make per hour when you are working.  If that amount is more than or equal to what you would pay for a house cleaning, then you should definitely hire a professional service to clean your home.

Think of it as maximizing your earning potential since you can continue working while they are cleaning. Even if you make less than it costs to hire a cleaning service, consider a monthly cleaning for sake of your personal sanity and family harmony.

WAHM Timesaver 3 – Mommy’s Helper

A Mommy’s helper can keep the kids occupied for a few hours while you meet deadlines, make phone calls or attend networking meetings.

Having quiet, uninterrupted time to focus on business tasks will allow you to get more work done and to sound more professional over the phone.

Hiring someone for a few hours in the morning can actually keep the kids quiet all day because they will need a nap when they get home and be less energetic in the afternoon.

WAHM Timesaver 4 – Put the Kids to Work

As your children get older, you can get them to help you manage the house and even some of your work chores.

Children as young as three can help pick up a room, especially if you set a timer and make it a game. Teens and pre-teens can keep younger children busy for a couple of hours a day.  They can also help prepare meals or clean up after dinner allowing you to get some work done.

WAHM Timesaver 5 – Embrace an Evening Routine

In his classic productivity book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, Steven Covey talks about Quadrant 2 tasks. These are the tasks that are important but not (yet) urgent. If left undone, they lead to days spent frantically putting out fires, moving from one emergency to another.

An evening routine will help you avoid unnecessary emergencies, which means your day will run smoother.

Here are 3 simple tasks you can add to your evening routine.

  • Lay out clothes for children, pack lunches, and put school supplies by the door to get kids off to school easily.
  • Do a load of laundry, vacuum and prepare items for the crock pot  to get housework out of the way.
  • Make a work to-do list and clean your desk to start your work day off on the right foot.

WAHM Timesaver 6 – Your Calendar

You will never fully enjoy the flexibility and spontaneity of working from home if you don’t keep a meticulous calendar.

Enter all of your children’s events and family celebrations into your calendar and plan your work week around it. Chart your daily and weekly tasks to be completed for work. If you can stay on top of your work schedule, you will find that you can afford to take and occasional day off for family fun.

A Clean Home is Essential to a Sense of Self-Worth

Posted on August 11, 2012. Filed under: About Sponge & Sparkle | Tags: , |

I read recently that people are less likely to take care of their environment  ( i.e. home),  when they don’t feel good about themselves, and the more chaotic their environment,  the worse they  feel about themselves.

It is a vicious cycle. Disorganization degrades a person’s sense of self-worth; when one feels that their space is cluttered and dirty, it is hard not to internalize that.

This just reinforces that a clean home is a healthy, happy,  home and is  absolutely integral to our well-being,  if the opposite is also true.

If you have a friend who is going through rough waters,  it may be a good bet that a gift of  Atlanta housecleaning services  could help to lift her spirits.

In relation to this,  Sponge & Sparkle also does free cleanings for women undergoing treatment for cancer.  We are part of Cleaning For A Reason www.cleaningforareason.org  – a national non-profit foundation of cleaning services that want to give back to their community by helping women feel better.

When women are sick and they can’t  take care of their home they way they  have in the past,  it is just another overwhelming, depressing thing.

If you know of  a woman who could benefit from a clean home, please tell her about  the C4R  website.  If she is in our area, the foundation will verify her eligibility and put us in touch with her.   We typically give each recipient 4 cleanings of 2 hours each with 2 people.  If  she is not in our service area, the foundation will have an affiliate service in her area contact her.

Battle of the Cleaning Standards – Men vs. Women

Posted on August 2, 2012. Filed under: Cleaning Bedroom, Kitchen Cleaning | Tags: , |

Arguing His Case, But Still CleaningThe average  British woman spends 3 hours a week redoing her  partner’s  housework, according to a study done in the United Kingdom!

Cleaning the kitchen and fluffing the pillows were the primary chores that men failed to execute to their wives’ satisfaction.  And among the top 10 complaints, 3 were about making the bed!  (from Real Simple magazine).

One can only imagine the resentment these women feel because, really if a  person is going to do something, then why not do it right?

Couples also find themselves fighting about the division of labor, as women usually feel that they do a disproportionate amount of housework compared to men.   This can’t be that good for a relationship, and this is where a couple might want to seriously consider hiring a professional cleaning service.

Hiring a professional cleaning service makes for more harmony in the home, giving couples one less thing to argue about, more time to have fun together.

Hiring a service puts the whole cleaning  dilemma  in neutral territory  – where both partners can be united –  in the satisfaction of knowing they have gone a long way to solving one of the  more  “nagging’  (!) problems for a  relationship,  and being able to enjoy the home that they have created together!

7 Surprising Benefits of a Clean Home

Posted on July 24, 2012. Filed under: Cleaning Bedroom, Clearing Clutter, Household Tips | Tags: |

Atlanta House Cleaning - Sponge & Sparkle Team MemberA clean home has more benefits than impressing visitors. It improves your quality of life in many ways.  Here are seven surprising benefits of a clean home.

1 – More Romance

There’s nothing worse than hearing your spouse walk in and announce that the house is still dirty, as if you hadn’t noticed.  Such a greeting does not bode well for a romantic evening.

There’s always the option of spending the whole day scrubbing and making sure the house is spic and span before he or she gets home, but then there’s the problem of falling to sleep over your dinner plate.

This is why cleaning together, or better yet, hiring someone to clean for you leads to a better sex life.

2 – Tidier Finances

Have you ever had a bill slip your mind time and time again? If so, changes are your billing system needs to be more organized.

Having a clean house will prevent you from letting mail pile up unread, and hence you will avoid the dangers of being clueless about your financial situation.

Another financial benefit: having a clean house will prevent multiple purchases for those items that tend to disappear into the clutter.

3 – A Clear Mind

If you’ve ever walked into a boutique hotel room you know just how relaxing these environments are.  It’s not because these rooms are spacious and have expensive furniture, because they don’t.  They are simply neat and clean.  A clean room really does lead to an uncluttered mind.

4 – Ethical Treatment

According to a Brigham Young University study, a clean smelling environment leads to fairer and more ethical treatment.

5 – Guilt-Free Leisure

Having a clean house removes that nagging inner voice telling you that you need to clean this, or organize that.

You are able to focus on things you enjoy like reading a book, watching a movie, or just sitting still and taking a deep breath without the guilt of feeling that there is something else you should be doing.

6 – A Healthier Family

A dirty home can exacerbate asthma, pass around colds, and spread dangerous bacteria. Your home doesn’t have to be sterile; a clean, dust-free environment can help keep all family members healthier.

Cleanliness will also prevent accidents in the home like tripping over toys, and getting injured on dangerous objects left lying about.  This is especially important if you have small children who aren’t in enough control of their motor skills, or are too busy rushing around to pay attention to where they are going.

7 – More Fun With Friends

Humans are social beings – positive social interaction leads to a happier, higher quality life. When your home is clean, you are much more likely to invite people over.  On the other hand, people who are embarrassed about the state of their home are much less likely to have close friends drop by.

In addition, an untidy home may make friends feel ill at ease, which means they will be reluctant to visit again.

Want to experience the benefits of a sparklingly clean home without the hard work?

If you are in Atlanta, turn your house cleaning over to us. We simply love delivering dazzle.

A Clean Home is Good for Your Health

Posted on January 29, 2012. Filed under: Green Cleaning | Tags: |

A clean home  - just what the doctor orderedA clean home makes you feel great, but did you realize that a clean home may provide tangible health benefits?

This article shares 10 health benefits of a clean house. Some of the benefits listed in this article are well known, but others may come as a surprise. Most of us know dust and dirt may exacerbate allergies and asthma, and thoroughly cleaning your home gets rid of bacteria that pose health risks to people with compromised immune systems. Did you know that a clean, uncluttered home may also lower your risk of injury?

If you’d rather spend your time with friends and family, consider hiring Sponge & Sparkle to keep your Atlanta home sparkling clean.

As one customer says:
We found Sponge & Sparkle based on good reviews online. Thus far, we have enjoyed their professionalism (corporate & cleaning staff) & flexibility. Their pro-active emails/phone-calls make us feel that we are in good hands.
