Vancouver Carpet Cleaner Shares Spring Cleaning Hacks That Really Work

Apr 25th, 2019 | by Angelo |    0   

As a professional Vancouver carpet cleaner, Angelo diPomponio (Founder of Angelo’s FabriClean) has made dealing with messes—all kind of messes—his business. In this industry, it’s common to hear about various home cleaning hacks, and while a number of them work, some just do the job better than others. Here are some of the most innovative tips for 2019.

Wait for Sunset or Cloudy Days to Wash Windows

Washing windows on a hot, sunny day will cause them to dry and streak before the job is finished. Wait for sunset or for the clouds to roll in in order to have time to wipe away the water for a better finish. Be sure to get rid of dust and dirt before starting, and try using a microfiber cloth instead of a squeegee.

Use Vinegar to Eliminate Dishwasher Odours

Sometimes putting the wrong items in the dishwasher gives everything a bad smell. For example, high heat and dairy do not mix. And the worst part is it can linger even after its washed again. Use a solution of vinegar and baking powder to get rid of that smell. Place a bowl of vinegar on the top shelf of an empty dishwasher and run the machine on the hottest (and shortest setting). Then sprinkle a cup of baking soda around the bottom of the machine and run it again. Simple.

Use Epsom Salt on Kitchen and Bathroom Grout

Kitchen and bathroom grout can become unsightly and is not so easily cleaned. Use a damp cloth and rub some Epsom salts into the dirty grout lines, then leave it to settle overnight. In the morning, wipe clean with a microfiber cloth and watch the grease and dirt disappear. Borax or hydrogen peroxide can also be used to whiten, brighten and deodorize the grout around the home.

Revive a Mattress with Some Baking Soda

People should flip their mattresses twice a year, and vacuum it to avoid bed bugs, but in order to get a mattress smelling fresher, use some baking soda. It sucks up lingering odours and moisture that may have seeped into the mattress. Sprinkle it on, leave for half an hour or more, then vacuum off.

Flip Your Rugs for a Deep Carpet Clean

After vacuuming a rug, occasionally flip it over and vacuum the back. This can suck out a lot of extra dirt. The first time doing this may push dirt out from the front of the rug, which could then require another vacuum. While it’s a little gross the first time, it means getting a lot of extra dust out of the house. This is a great trick for people who live in small spaces.
