Daily household cleaning areas

Posted on December 7th, 2011 No Comments

There are seven areas in a residence that should be maintained daily. By tending to these areas for a matter of minutes each day, a large cleaning expense at the end of the week may not be necessary.

In the kitchen, dirty dishes that have piled up throughout the course of the day as well as the kitchen sink area itself should be cleaned on a daily basis. The kitchen slab as well as the gas oven, if your home has one, should be wiped down and cleaned out to kill germs.

The dining table needs to be cleaned on a nightly basis to remove any type of food residue. Dusting surface areas daily will remove allergens and keep indoor allergies at bay. By dusting and cleaning electronic appliances, the systems may last longer. Also, it is important to make your bed each day, this can allow you to sleep more peacefully at night.

Cleaning to prevent indoor allergies

Posted on November 18th, 2011 No Comments

The cold weather may stave off outdoor allergies, but that’s when indoor allergies set in. Indoor allergies affect allergy sufferers immensely during the holiday seasons.

There are simple solutions to avoid the onset of these allergies. Mold can grow indoors very easily and it is important to keep the humidity down indoors to evade buildup. Allergens and dust particles can settle in carpets and it is necessary to vacuum and clean them frequently.

Air ducts can collect dust and allergens as well and it may be a good investment to have your air ducts professionally cleaned. Wood floors are best to prevent triggers for indoor allergies because they require little effort to clean and maintain.

If you are interested in having your carpets professionally cleaned to remove allergen buildup, please contact the Arlington carpet cleaning experts of WOW Total Cleaning by calling 817-239-9441 today.

Kitchen floors harbor 6 million types of bacteria

Posted on October 20th, 2011 No Comments

According to a study into the cleanliness and health of kitchen floors, some kitchen floors contain between 6 to 8 million different kinds of bacteria.  In some of the kitchens examined in the study, researchers found that kitchen floors contained more bacteria than public toilet seats.

The study looked at the kitchen floors in student housing, residences, and other housing.  Residences occupied by families with children and pets were found to have the dirtiest and unhealthiest kitchen floors.  In contrast, married couples without children or pets and single professionals were found to have the healthiest kitchen floors.

Surprisingly, one reason the floors were found to harbor so much bacteria was the cleaning methods residents used.  In kitchens where residents used a single bucket to mop the floor, the amount of bacteria on the floor actually increased.

What lives in your carpet?

Posted on October 14th, 2011 No Comments

Carpets add a coziness and comfortable atmosphere to the home. Compared to tile or hardwood floors, carpets can also help alleviate symptoms to those who suffer from indoor allergies if cleaned regularly and properly.

However, just as carpets can help allergy sufferers by trapping floating dust and other allergens, this can cause a health hazard if not cleaned thoroughly. If not cleaned regularly, dust can get kicked up by foot traffic. Not only dust, but tiny creatures like dust mites can live within the fibers.

In a CNN report, levels of dangerous chemicals are ten to a hundred times higher in indoor carpets than outside. They can be brought into the house by shoes and animals and settle in the carpet. Many harmful insects, that can also be brought in this way, can survive for long periods of time without sunlight. These chemicals and creatures can cause serious health risks and stir up allergies.

To make sure your carpet is clean and danger-free, have it professionally cleaned by the Arlington carpet cleaning technicians of WOW Total Cleaning. Call at 817-239-9441 today.

Upholstery cleaning tips

Posted on October 6th, 2011 No Comments

Upholstery cleaning can be tricking when dealing with oil-based or ink stains. Commercial upholstery cleaners can bleach the fabric as well as harm the environment and improper cleaning can even leave water spots.

The best way to remove stains for upholstery is to use a steam cleaner. Steam cleaners avoid leaving water spots because they suck the water back up while gently scrubbing the fabric. While steam cleaners can leave your furniture slightly damp, they will not leave marks. Leather furniture cannot be steam cleaned, but luckily they are easier than most fabrics to remove stains.

Ink stains on leather furniture can be removed with rubbing alcohol. Gently rubbing the stain with a soft cloth lightly dipped in rubbing alcohol can get rid of ink marks.

The best way to get your furniture looking like new is to have them professionally cleaned. If you are interested in having your upholstery cleaned by professionals, contact the Arlington upholstery cleaning experts of WOW Total Cleaning by calling 817-239-9441.

When to strip and wax floors

Posted on September 30th, 2011 No Comments

Stripping and waxing floors is a drastic and expensive cleaning process that can make floors look brand new. However, it should only be done quarterly or every six months, depending on the floor’s condition and how much traffic it gets. The strip and wax process can last longer if the floor is maintained properly.

A less dramatic way to keep your floors looking great is to scrub and recoat them. Lightly scrubbing the floor will remove a couple of layers of wax, but not all of it. Then recoat with wax. This is recommended about every four to six months. Another alternative is to mop and burnish. Once the floor is mopped clean, a burnisher that rotates at at least 2000 RPM will essentially melt the wax and shine the floor. For commercial locations, this should be done monthly.

If your business is interested in stripping and waxing its floors, contact the Arlington strip and wax service specialists by calling WOW Total Cleaning today at 817-239-9441.

How to clean grout

Posted on September 23rd, 2011 No Comments

Grout can become discolored and brittle over time if mildew, moisture, and grime accumulate for too long. Cleaning it is never a fun chore, but it keeps your floors, bathrooms, and kitchens look clean and brand new.

Grout can be cleaned in a few ways. For extreme grout discoloration, steam cleaners may be necessary, but can also be costly. Commercial cleaning products more than likely contain bleach, which can corrode and damage the grout. Non-toxic solutions, like using baking soda and vinegar, work with light stains and dirt, but probably won’t do much for most discoloration.

Another alternative is using oxygen bleach. Oxygen bleach can be found in cleaning products such as Oxy-Clean and is safe for the environment. But this requires tiring scrubbing on your hands and knees. The easiest way to clean grout is to hire a professional to clean and then seal the grout to prevent future tedious cleanings.

If you are interested in having your tile and grout professional cleaned, contact the Arlington tile and grout cleaning experts at WOW Total Cleaning today by calling 817-239-9441.

How to maintain granite counter tops

Posted on September 13th, 2011 No Comments

Granite counter tops have become increasingly popular over the past several years in kitchens and bathrooms. While installing granite is a beautiful way to add value to your home, it requires regular maintenance and needs special care.

To prevent your damage to your counter tops, quickly clean up any spills, especially from acidic foods as they can scratch or etch the granite. Also, avoid using acidic cleaning products, like vinegar, for the same reason. If acidic foods do come in contact with the counter, an easy way to remove stains is to mix a few drops of ammonia with hydrogen peroxide and blot it on the stain.

Since granite can easily be scratched, it’s important to never use the counters as a cutting board. The best form of prevention is to apply sealants yearly to ensure that the granite remains resistant to water, grease, mildew, and mold.

If you are interested in having your granite counter tops professionally cleaned or sealed, contact the Arlington natural floor cleaners at WOW Total Cleaning today by calling 817-239-9441.

Hurricane Irene causes major flooding

Posted on August 29th, 2011 No Comments

Hurricane Irene hit the East coast hard this past weekend, and perhaps the hardest hit was Vermont. Recently declared a federal disaster area, many are saying that this has been the worst flooding the state has seen in over a century.

Central and southern Vermont saw 11 to 13 inches of rain. Tens of thousands are without electricity as emergency personnel are unable to make it to some of the hardest hit areas. Rain waters threatened a major dam near Montpelier, which almost forced lawmakers to consider opening the dam and letting it flood the state capital.

So far, two bodies have been found recovered after the flood.

Flood damage is costly and potentially hazardous to your health. If your home or business has suffered severe flood damage, contact the Arlington water extraction and restoration experts at WOW Total Cleaning today by calling 817-239-9441.
