Clean Your Home in the Green Way with These 4 Tips

One of the key factors responsible for labeling your own home ‘healthy’ is its cleaning technique. Everyone loves to stay in a home that smell fresh, looks clean and is hygienic by all means. As a homeowner, it is your duty to clean your home in a way that does not affect the occupants or the home environment. It is known that the cleaning professionals in San Francisco adopt practices that make your home not only clean but also green (safe for the environment).

So if you also intend to clean your house in a way that is safe for the surrounding environment, these are the practices that you should adopt:

  1. Check the ingredients of the chemical cleaners– Green cleaning is the cleaning method that incorporates the use of non-toxic, natural and biodegradable cleaning products. If you intend to green clean your house and don’t have the green products used by the professional, commercial ones can suffice but you must check the ingredients before purchasing it. The composition must not contain chemicals that are toxic to the health of living creatures or the environment; the products should be eco-friendly by nature. Check for labels since some of the products already have Eco-friendly mentioned in it.

  1. Keep the windows clean– Windows are the main source of ventilation in your home; let the sunrays and fresh breeze enter your room throughout the day. However, if the windows are left unclean, having dirt piled up on the surface with cobwebs hanging on the frame, not only will it spoil the entire appearance of your home but also function as an obstruction. That is why green house cleaners prioritize window cleaning by using the right tools and green products. Purchase Eco-friendly cleaning solutions in the form of liquid soaps and bars; use it in small amount and clean the glass gradually with a microfiber cloth.

  1. Anti-bacterial soaps are not always cool- You may go by the advertisement that says ‘anti-bacterial soaps kill maximum germs’ but the reality is pretty different; these soaps are similar to any other ordinary cleansers and comes with no such superpower. Researches say that anti-bacterial soaps even have the ability to give birth to ‘super germs’ that are notable for their power of resistance against anti-bacterial soap. So keep away the anti-bacterial soap myth and embrace the power of green cleansers!

  1. Prevent blocked drains– A blocked drain is something that everyone dreads and so you should do whatever it takes to keep it clog-free. You can install a strainer that will collect hair and other residues that causes blocked drains. If you throw oil and grease down the drain every time you cook, make sure you remember to pour boiling water into the drain as this prevents the oil from sticking and causing blocked drains. If you already have blocked drains, try using a plunger or pour natural products like baking soda and white vinegar (both half cups) into the drain. This should clear out all blockages and give you a free-flowing drain again!

Conclusion– Cleaning your home in the green way is not so difficult as you may think. All you need are some natural products like baking soda, white vinegar, borax, lemon juice, olive oil, washing soda and castile soap. If you think green cleaning your home is not a self job, you can always hire a professional cleaning service for gratifying results.

3 Steps to Clean Your Windows before Spring Arrives!

Winter is a season when everything is in a passive state- lifeless, dead and colorless. So are your windows, with snow piled up on the window frames and mist that has made the window glass blurred. Now that Spring is here, you can focus on having clean and sparkling windows again.

When should you get your windows cleaned?

With time and use, your windows grow old (just like you), including the frames, window sills, tracks and other parts. Also, various deposits are left to accumulate on your window sills- rainwater, snow, hail and others. If these elements are left deposited like that, it could damage your windows or the parts. Accept this as an indication for window cleaning and make preparations straight away.

Before you get ready with all your tools and products to spring clean your windows, it is important to use the right product and the correct cleaning method. So here are some useful tips to make your spring window cleaning in San Francisco, easy, effective and refreshing.

  1. Clear away the loose soil- Many people overlook this step but ironically, it is vital to clear out the loose soil before beginning window cleaning. The main areas where dust, dirt and sediments get lumped up are on the tracks and blinds of the windows. The loose dirt from such areas can be easily vacuumed out and then clean the blinds using a microfiber cloth. Then comes the window surface where there is a maximum accumulation of dirt. Remove dust and other loose dirt using a microfiber cloth. This step is a pre-treatment of the windows that makes window cleaning easier for an expert cleaner.

  1. Window washing- This is the step that will give you clear and glistening windows that you have longed for in the entire winter season! Also, this is the step that is not performed correctly by everyone; hence, it is best to hire a professional window cleaning service in San Francisco. The reason is the window cleaning experts possess the proper tools and products starting from the concentrated window cleaning solution, aerosols and even foam sprays that clean your windows effectively. Moreover, they incorporate different kinds of cleaning like ‘green cleaning’ in which only natural and non-toxic products are used to clean the windows. After applying the cleaners, they use a microfiber cloth or squeegee to wipe the windows clean. The main difference between hiring a window cleaner and doing the job yourself is that you will take the maximum amount of window cleaning chemicals that will make your task difficult while the expert cleaners know the exact amount to take to make your windows shine bright.

  1. Window drying- Now that the most complicated part (washing the windows) is over, it is time to let your windows get dry so that the sunshine can enter without any hindrance. You must use two cloths- one to wipe the excess water, foam or soil from the window surface and the other is to make the windows completely moisture-free. A window that is well-dried, reduces the chance of having soil and dirt settled on the surface. The end result is you will get clean and fresh windows ready to welcome the season of renewed birth, Spring.

Conclusion- Spring is a season where everything comes to life and looks fresh and clean. So should your house and windows. Get ready to welcome Spring in full force with clean and well-maintained windows by following the above tips.
