Bedroom Cleaning Tips

Tip 1:

When vacuuming or mopping always start from the top and work towards the exits so you don’t leave marks. Work back towards a door and avoid stepping on the areas you have just cleaned.

Tip 2:

Hardwood floors demand special care in order to keep them looking shiny and attractive. Since wood is a porous material, the rule of thumb is: the less water, the better. That means, hardwood floors should be mopped with a well-wrung out mop or soft rag.

But to start with, fill up a bucket with cool (never hot) tap water and mix in a mild cleaner that’s suitable for most hardwood floors.

Why not hot water? It can dissolve wax, for one reason. It can also cause your floors to streak.

Tip 3:

Ensure you vacuum and mop under all beds. This eliminates you from breathing dust when you are sleeping.

Tip 4:

Vacuum and flip your mattress over to provide even wear.

Tip 5:

In our opinion wood wax is best to use on furniture because it seals the wood and does not attract dust whereas an oil or spray will look good for a little while BUT it attracts dust within hours
