All-Natural Cleaning Tips

 

Everyone wants to keep their family healthy, but some cleaners have harsh chemicals that can be harmful.

Drycon Carpet Cleaning of Middle Tennessee recommends a few easy and practical natural cleaning tips for your home.

Lemons

You know the old saying, "When life gives you lemons, clean your counter tops!" Use lemons to clean your counter tops by cutting the lemon in half and dipping the lemon in baking soda.  Rub the lemon on your counter tops and wipe away with warm water and a sponge.  Lemons are also a great way to clean dishes, faucets and cutting boards and mixing lemon juice with cream of tartar is an inexpensive way to clean grout that has been stained by everyday use. 

Cooking Oils

Vegetable oil, olive oil and sunflower oil can be used to diminish scratches and imperfections in the wood in your home.  Use olive or vegetable oil combined with equal parts lemon juice to make your own furniture polish.  To make your stainless-steel surfaces sparkle and shine, use the oil as a polish and buff.

Vinegar

Vinegar’s acidic traits work wonders in cleaning mold, mildew and even some bacteria.  Use vinegar and warm water to clean just about anything including tubs, showers and even tile amd hardwood floors.  Be sure to follow proper vinegar to water ratios for cleaning specific items. You can find hundreds of vinegar based cleanser ideas online.

8 Tips for Maintaining Your Hardwood Floors

It’s spring time in Middle Tennessee, and warmer weather means kids and pets bringing dirt into your home.  To keep your hardwood floors looking their best, follow these 8 easy tips from Drycon of Middle Tennessee.

  1. Wipe spills up immediately.  Accidents are inevitable, but be sure to clean spills quickly to limit staining.
  2. Place a mat at outside entrances to reduce the amount of dirt and moisture tracked into your home.  Limiting the debris brought in can help preserve your hardwood floors.
  3. Keep your pet’s nails trimmed.  This helps to avoid damage from scratches.
  4. Avoid cleaners that have ammonia, detergents, bleach, polishes, oil soaps, abrasive cleaning soaps, or acidic materials.
  5. Sweep, dust and vacuum your hardwood floors regularly, at least once per week. 
  6. Protect your hardwood floors from direct sunlight.  Direct sunlight can cause discoloration and warping. 
  7. Use protective padding under the legs of furniture on your hardwoods. Replace hard, narrow furniture rollers with wide rubber rollers.
  8. Protect high-traffic areas with area rugs.  This will help decrease the damage caused by normal wear and tear to your hardwood floors. 

Of course, regular professional cleaning can help protect your hardwood floors and extend their life.  Drycon of Middle Tennessee offers professional hardwood cleaning for just $60 per room or $75 per room with furniture moving.
