A Plan for Green Cleaning Your Home
Cleaning the home properly, with green cleaning methods is the easier and most cost-efficient way to start. A green-cleaning routine is best carried out one room at a time, starting in the bedrooms of the ones who suffer from allergies. Their bedding and curtains should be washed, and the mattresses cleaned professionally with environmentally friendly products. Steamy’s can handle this for you. Window sills, window frames, and floors should also be thoroughly cleaned. If there are carpets on the floor, it should also be cleaned by a professional with product which will not aggravate any allergies.
Once the bedrooms have been cleaned as described, the bathrooms should be next. Remember when cleaning in these areas that their warm and moist conditions are conducive to mould, which is extremely aggravating for allergies. Steamy’s can recommend cleaning products which will help alleviate any mould growth, while remaining safe for the home. The kitchen can also be a growth area for mould, as can the inside of many appliances. Let a Steamy’s technician help ensure your home is free from mould. When cleaning the kitchen, you should make sure that any food particles are removed from the stove, table, counters, floors, and anywhere else that they may be an issue. You will also want to keep the areas under the sink dry and clean.
The living room should be cleaned with the same method as the bedroom, with upholsteries, carpets, and curtains cleaned by a professional. Ceiling fans should be dusted very regularly, and windows and window frames should be kept clean. Furniture should also be dusted often. Steamy’s can clean the carpet with hospital grade vacuums which will remove 97% to 99% of allergens as well.
You will also need a professional to clean the heating and air conditioning system in your home, and to check over the rest of the home with you to make sure that as many allergens as possible have been removed. All upholsteries, bedding, mattresses, appliances, and air handling systems should be cleaned by a professional such as the ones at Steamy’s.
