The bits of cleaning your home that need a little extra time


Though you may be house proud there are some bits of cleaning that just get left, many of them are too time consuming or too difficult to do without extra equipment. In the time some jobs that will be barely noticed by others take, you could clean an entire room, but these jobs are ones you will still be aware of and ones that do need doing eventually. Many of these jobs are best done by a cleaning service as otherwise the time taken seems barely worthwhile and is difficult to fit into ones schedule, this simply means they get left and get worse: with bathtubs especially the longer left the worse the job becomes and so rather than assuming you will find time it may be best to get a cleaning service in straight away.


One of these jobs best done by a cleaning service is deep cleaning carpets, carpets with underlay won’t be completely cleaned with a vacuum: especially if you have floorboards over a crawl space. If your vacuum cleaner can’t make a vacuum then not all dirt will be sucked up: dirt and bacteria seep down into your carpet’s base and underlay: killing this bacteria that can otherwise cause odors requires a steam cleaner, that steam cleaner must be powerful enough to get down deep but hot enough that it will kill bacteria and so that the carpet will dry quickly.


Another job that seems to take an eternity is dusting the tops of the books in your library and elsewhere. Books may be associated with dust but wherever dust is it is bad for health and doesn’t look good either. If all books were soft bound and the same size the job would be easier but even then it is difficult to remove rather than just move around the dust. Rather than rushing the job it may be worth getting a cleaning service in to do the job for you.


Cleaning the bath tub is a job that should either be done every time it is used or will get to the point where it will take hours. What often happens with baths is that the grease and lime scale that build up on them is simply bleached: this is all many bath cleaning products do in fact but the dirt and bacteria is still there and will quickly show up again. To remove grease and lime scale from a bath tub there is no alternative to hard work, for someone at least.


Polishing brass is another job that to do properly takes time, brass will tarnish quickly at first but then can take much longer before becoming very dirty. Of course the more items are used and handled the more often they must be polished. As for silverware, cutlery and kitchenware need to be polished every time they are used: it is very tempting to put them away and polish them before next using them but the job is much easier if done straight away.


Oven cleaning is one of the least pleasant and most time consuming jobs. As the oven can’t be moved you have to move yourself to its level meaning the work is particularly good for getting a sore back; an oven’s shelves can be soaked sadly the oven itself cannot be treated in the same way. A maid cleaning service can send along someone with experience cleaning ovens and all the best products to remove baked on grime.
