Don’t stay cooped up in a dirty home all winter when D’s Cleaning Service can spruce it up to your shining standards just in time for any holiday parties.

 

Winter Windows Aren’t Made for Wonderland

Winter pollutants, rainy thunderstorms, and even the occasional ice or snow in Louisiana can really muck up your windows. You don’t want grime and dirt blocking that beautiful sunshine when it pokes out to get rid of that wintery chill in your home. If the idea of cleaning windows in the cold doesn’t appeal to you, call us at D’s Cleaning Service instead!

So, let us help you remove that unsightly grime and enjoy those beautiful views all winter long.

 

Person sitting on contaminated carpets The Cold Weather Can Drive You Inside Leaving Your Carpets Extra Contaminated

Everyone knows carpets trap tons of dirt, dander, and allergens. According to the National Center for Healthy Housing, carpet holds about 5 to 25 grams of dust and dirt for every square meter of surface area. Spending extra time inside during the winter probably adds to those numbers and means you are around all that material even more than usual. If you notice that your allergies are worse in the winter, that your carpet looks a little dingy, or even that you just haven’t cleaned it in a while, then it may be time to clean your home’s carpets.

D’s Cleaning Service offers professional deep carpet cleaning to homeowners throughout the Baton Rouge and New Orleans areas. Removing stains, dirt, and allergens from your carpets means you breathe easier in the winter and makes your home look dashing for visiting relatives and friends.

 

Dust Decks the HallsTable after winter cleaning set for guests

Winter is the perfect time to remove that extra dust off of those rarely cleaned places. From fan blades to bookshelves and even window blinds, dust gathers and collects in the winter just as it does in the summer. Before inviting guests over for holiday meals, take the time to wipe away the extra dust in your home. With excited kids and unknowing guests, a fan switch can easily be turned on and cause a dust storm in your home. Dusting in your house, however, can prevent any critiques from relatives or mistakes that end in a sneezing contest.

When you’re too busy preparing food and guest accommodations for visiting friends and family, you can call the experts at D’s Cleaning Service. We’ll ensure your home is spotless with professional dusting services.

When winter comes and you find yourself relaxing in your home more often, remember that your house needs extra cleaning to keep up with the extra activity. For all your winter cleaning needs, you can rely on D’s Cleaning Service to get your home beautiful and clean once again.

4 D's of Holiday Cleaning

The 4 D’s of Winter Cleaning

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Cleaning, Cleaning Tips

Everyone Knows About Spring Cleaning… But What About Winter Cleaning?

 

So many people wait until spring to begin their annual cleaning routine. Why is that? The hustle and bustle of the holidays make it the most important time to have your home clean and orderly. For a sparkling house this winter season, D’s Cleaning Service has prepared the four D’s of winter cleaning to ensure your home looks as fresh as newly fallen snow.

 

  1. Declutter What You Don’t Need

The holidays are a time for giving and receiving. Make room for the new gifts that you will be receiving and get rid of the items you no longer need or use. In fact, you can even stick to the spirit of the season and you can even donate those unwanted items to a person in need. Once you declutter your home, you can bring those unwanted items that are still useable to a donation box within the Baton Rouge area.

The best places to start decluttering are:

  • Closets
  • The Garage
  • Cabinets
  • Under Furniture
  • The Attic

 

  1. Disinfect to Make Your Home HealthyClean linens after winter cleaning

With the colder season coming, the season of viruses and illnesses is not far behind. As you are preparing for the winter holidays, you want to be sure that you are healthy so you can celebrate the festivities with friends and family. After all, you don’t want to miss any of the holiday parties or feasts that you may have scheduled.

There are so many areas of your home that would benefit from a disinfecting scrub to remove bacteria and viruses. However, the most important places to clean include:

  • Bath Tubs and Showers
  • Sinks
  • Countertops
  • Kitchen Appliances
  • Door Knobs
  • Blankets and Bed Sheets

 

  1. Dust Away the Dirt and Dander

Just like how disinfecting is important to keep your home free from pathogens that can make you sick, dusting is just as important to rid your home of allergens. Because people tend to bundle up inside their homes during the wintertime, it is a good idea to make sure that dusting is a priority on your winter cleaning checklist. This is to make sure you can snuggle up in your favorite blanket without the extra sneezing and wheezing.

Dust hides in several places around the home. Perhaps the most common places dust hides in your house are:

  • Window Blinds
  • Ceiling Fans
  • Shelves and Cabinets

 

  1. Deep Clean the Floorsa person winter cleaning by mopping the floors

Tiles, wood, and carpet all need extra cleaning from time to time. Deep cleaning your floors goes beyond your routine sweeping and vacuuming. A good wash before the winter holidays will make your floors look like new and overall give a refreshed feeling to your home.

To effectively remove stains, dirt and grime from your floors, try:

  • Vacuuming Under Furniture
  • Shampooing or Steaming Carpets
  • Mopping Tiles and Hardwoods
  • Polishing Hardwoods

Although different floor types each need a different method of deep cleaning, it is important to properly dry your floors after they have been washed to prevent mold and mildew.

Prevent the Flu by Keeping Your Home Clean with D’s Cleaning Service

With the flu season here and most likely staying for a good while, many people are looking into ways to prevent the flu. While practicing good habits everywhere you go, such as washing your hands and not touching your mouth is good, protecting your family from the flu starts at home. Since you spend most of your time at home, you need to make sure it’s clean and that you are practicing the healthy habits there most of all.

 

A clean bathroom to prevent the fluKeep a Completely Clean Home

Germs, viruses, and bacteria tend to collect on the items we use the most every day. These places are the flu virus’s ideal spot to lurk and wait for you to pick it up, which ends with you being out of commission for a couple of weeks. To help protect your family and yourself from catching the flu, you’ll need to clean these hots spots frequently to attack and defeat those dangerous viruses.

  • Door Handles
  • Toilets and Toilet Handles
  • Towels
  • Sinks and Faucet Handles
  • Fridge Handles
  • Desks and Computers
  • Remote Controls
  • Towels
  • Floors

Washing towels frequently and disinfecting hard surfaces that people touch often are some of the best ways to prevent the flu from spreading to your whole family. If you have trouble cleaning your home daily because of your busy schedule, consider hiring a professional cleaning service like D’s Cleaning Service to help. D’s Cleaning Service can come to clean your home when you need and just in time for flu season.

 

Practice Healthy Habits

A clean home is a great start in preventing your family from catching the flu, but you’ll also want to make sure your family is practicing healthy habits as well. As stress has a major impact in weakening your immune system, you’ll want your family to stay relaxed, especially around the holidays. Also make sure your family gets plenty of sleep, exercise, and vitamins and minerals. Overall, these habits will help support your family’s immune system so it can fight off any germs it comes into contact with.

 

Use Flu Disinfectant

When cleaning your home and maybe even your workspace too, you’ll want to make sure the products you are using are effective against the flu. Only certain cleaners are flu disinfectants and can remove the virus from surfaces. Be sure to check which cleaners you are using for maximum protection.

At D’s Cleaning Service, we use industrial grade cleaning products to ensure your home is clean and disinfected from germs and flu viruses. If you want to be sure your home is clean, call D’s Cleaning Service today.

 

Wash Your Hands OftenPerson washing their hands to prevent the flu

Washing your hands often during the flu season is a must to keep the germs at bay. Not only do you need to wash your hands often, but you need to wash them with soap. Soap is essential in helping to clean germs off of your skin. You don’t even need to worry about reaching for anti-bacterial soap. In fact, the FDA issued an article stating that anti-bacterial soap is no more effective in killing germs and can actually cause problems.  If you’re wondering what kind of soap to use, any regular soap in your local market will do the trick.

When flu season is in full bloom, cleaning your home and hands as well as practicing healthy habits is a must for both you and your family. Visit our blog for more cleaning tips and call D’s Cleaning Service for help in keeping your home clean in order to prevent the flu this year.

Office Pets Don’t Have to Make a Mess. Keep Your Office Clean with an Office Pet.

The trend of office pets is on the rise. After all, they decrease stress, improve morale, and are cuddly cuties that brighten everyone’s day. With more office pets gracing the halls of commercial buildings everywhere, it’s time to ask whether or not your office is clean enough for your employees with an animal on the loose. From your carpets to your kitchen, there are certain areas in your business that you need to keep extra clean when you have an office pet, and D’s Cleaning Service is here to help you do just that.

 

cat office pet in the kitchenKitchen

Your employees eat at work on a regular basis and let’s be honest, dogs, cats, and other animals aren’t known for being the cleanest creatures. Whether they track in dirt from outside or just jump on the counters after walking around in the office, an animal in the kitchen is not sanitary. Your kitchen is already one of the dirtiest places in your office, so keeping it clean while adding in a pet is an extra challenge. You’ll need to do something about the bacteria, food crumbs, and germs that lurk on the counters and tables where your employees eat and prepare food.

To keep your employees healthy, D’s Cleaning Services puts special care into cleaning your company’s kitchen, especially when you have an office pet. From wiping away germs on the counters to sanitizing tables, your company’s kitchen will be spotless after we clean even when you have roaming pets.

 

Carpetsoffice pet sleeping on the carpet

While pets do a lot for moral, they sometimes can hurt your employees’ overall health. According to Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, more than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies each year and six out of 10 are exposed to cat or dog dander regularly. With so many people suffering from allergies, having an office pet could be causing some of your employees to suffer symptoms such as scratchy eyes, congestion, skin rashes, coughing and more. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, suggests improving air quality by vacuuming, dusting, and washing.

At D’s Cleaning Service, we can help improve air quality by cutting down on pet dander with services including general cleaning, carpet shampooing, and dusting.

 

Windows

First impressions are important, and pets can make great ones when they greet visitors with a tail wag or a friendly meow. Unfortunately, your office pet can also cause you to make a bad first impression with untidy office windows. Nose prints on the doors and windows from your furry friend don’t always look that great to visiting business partners or clients. You can end up looking a little unprofessional with smudges on all your glass. D’s Cleaning Service cleans all those smudges away so your pets and your clients have a clear view.

When you have D’s Cleaning Service as your commercial cleaner, you won’t need to worry about keeping your office clean even when you have an office pet. Keep loving your office pet and all the joy it brings while keeping your office clean by calling us today.

 

Are Cleaning and Disinfecting the Same Thing?

Are Cleaning and Disinfecting the Same Thing?

Know the Difference Between Cleaning and Disinfecting to Improve Your Regular Cleaning Routine

When people use the phrase, “the floor is so clean that you could eat food off of it” they are giving the highest compliment they can give on the state of the floors. While most people who say this would not actually eat their meals from the floor, it still seems important to clarify that there is, in fact, a difference between a surface being cleaned and one being disinfected. While cleaning and disinfecting do go hand in hand, there is a difference in what the two accomplish. So, if you think that a floor looks so clean that you could eat from it, think again.

 

Cleaning and disinfecting products use different chemicalsCleaning and Disinfecting Products Use Different Chemicals

Cleaning products are generally soap-based cleaning products that work well to remove dirt and grime. They can also remove some germs from surfaces, but in order to get that healthy clean your home or office needs, it’s best to use a disinfectant. A disinfectant will eliminate the germs and bacteria that can easily spread from surface to surface. In order to eliminate these microorganisms, you need a product that is designed to eliminate them from surfaces.

Cleaning and disinfecting products use different chemical ingredients in order to be effective in what they need to remove. Several cleaning products that claim to be used for both a cleaning and disinfecting may not always be as powerful as you may think. Professional cleaning companies such as D’s Cleaning Service take the time to separate their cleaning and disinfecting efforts to maximize their efforts in eliminating dirt, grime, and germs from your home or place of business.

 

Germs and Visible Grime Are Not Cleaned the Same Way

Just because a surface appears clean does not necessarily mean that it is free from germs and pathogens that can make you sick. If you spill something on your counters that leaves a smelly, sticky residue such as maple syrup, you would use a cleaner that would remove the mess from sight. The same goes for other stains you may have on carpets, clothes, and any other surface. Germs, however, cannot be seen and cannot be removed the same way. Pathogens require more powerful agents to be properly removed, which is why disinfectants are necessary to use whenever someone has a virus or any kind of infection that can spread from person to person.

 

Always Clean Before You DisinfectClean before you disinfect for a clean room

Whenever you are needing to eliminate the germs from your home or office, cleaning and disinfecting go hand in hand. In order to effectively disinfect your surroundings, you must clean first. Disinfectants require a clean surface so the chemicals can reach the germs whereas regular cleaning is a one-step process.

To clean and disinfect properly, start by wiping down the area with a cleaning product to remove the dust and grime buildup on the surfaces. This will give your home or office surfaces a clean appearance. Once the surfaces have that sparkling clean, use a disinfectant to properly erase the germs and pathogens to reduce the risk of illnesses from spreading and reproducing.

If your home or workplace needs a proper cleaning and disinfecting, call D’s Cleaning Service to give your place an extra shine and create a healthier environment. Using, industrial grade cleaning and disinfecting products, your floors and surfaces will be so clean and germ-free that you could eat off of them.

Remove Dust from Your Home by Checking 4 Forgotten Places

Remove Dust from Your Home by Checking 4 Forgotten Places

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Cleaning Tips

Remove Dust from Your Home by Remembering These Often-Forgotten Dusty Spots

Dust is everywhere. It lurks on family pictures, fireplace mantels, and bookshelves all the time. These easy-to-spot and clean areas are usually not a problem for homeowners as they can easily run a dusting cloth over the areas to remove the fine dirt. Dust, however, doesn’t just settle on items in open areas. Dust can be sneaky and continue to cause problems for your family such as allergy flair ups if not removed.

 

Dust Hides in the Vents

Take a look at your vents. Do you see some buildup on the vent covers? That buildup is proof that dust and dirt are being blown through your vents and throughout your home on a regular basis when and that your vent systems aren’t clean. If your family is experiencing heavy allergy symptoms, even during the off season, it might be a good idea to see if your vents need to be cleaned. Mold, dust, and debris can live in your vents and continually cause problems for your family.

To prevent heavy build up in your vents, make sure you regularly change the air filter on your system to help cut down on dust that blows into your home. Filters that are certified to stop dust, allergens, and pet dander will also help prevent unwanted dust from entering your house.

 

Dust Hides on Your Window Blindsdust hides on your window blinds in your home

It’s no secret that dust settles on flat surfaces like window blinds but knowing the dust is there and cleaning it off are two different stories. Window blinds tend to be a pain to clean. With so many slats and the strings preventing you from doing a clean sweep through, it’s easier for homeowners to turn a blind eye to the dusty window blinds.

On the other hand, dusty blinds can be a big eyesore and may cause some embarrassment when guests come to visit. To help keep your home and blinds dust free without the chore, a cleaning service may be the solution you need. Cleaning services such as D’s Cleaning Service, cannot only dust your blinds on a regular basis but also deep clean them to keep the blinds looking like new for longer.

 

Dust Hides on Your FansDust hides on your fans in your home

After keeping the fans turned off all winter long, there’s no question that dust has piled onto a fan’s blades. Flipping the fans on in the summer without dusting them first can end in a raining dust cloud. If there’s an extended period of time in which you don’t use your fans on a regular basis, be sure to dust them off before turning them on. A simple swipe over your fan blades can prevent dust from settling onto other surfaces and in your carpet.

 

Dust Hides in Your Carpet

Your carpet holds a lot of dust and dirt. While homeowners vacuum as often as they can to cut down on the dust within their carpet, there is only so much a vacuum can do. Even the super high-end vacuums with maximum suction power can’t remove all the dust and dirt from carpet when it is ingrained deep within. When it comes to removing dirt from your carpets and rugs, a deep carpet cleaning is the best way to go.

Professional carpet cleanings that focus on deep cleaning your home scrub, wash, and lift dust and dirt from your carpet with industrial grade machines. When you want your carpet to look like new and be as clean as when you first got it, call D’s Cleaning Service. Your home will feel 10times cleaner after your carpets are washed and the dust lifted.

When you want a clean house and better air quality, buckling down on the hidden dust and dirt within your home can make a big difference. Call D’s Cleaning Service if you need help keeping the dust at bay and see how we not only help you cut down on dust but also help keep your home cleaner overall.

Importance of cleaning and disinfecting office technology

Importance of cleaning and disinfecting office technology

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Business, Cleaning, Cleaning Tips

Why is it Important to Clean and Disinfect Technology in the Office?

Technology has worked its way into daily office life in the form of equipment such as computers, printers, and phones. Unfortunately, electronic devices become extremely dirty from everyday use. Most people don’t typically clean their electronics on a regular basis, but office technology can collect dirt and grime from people touching it over time. While dirt build-up may not always be seen with the naked eye, it can cause major issues.

With employees often sharing equipment, it’s important to regularly clean and disinfect electronic devices. By cleaning and disinfecting technology, you will reduce the risk of illness, lengthen the lifespan of equipment, and increase productivity in the office.

 

 

Reduce the Risk of Illness

Flu season is upon us. Cleaning and disinfecting your most frequently touched objects and surfaces, including electronics, can help prevent the spread of sickness in the office. Many employees share the same computers, phones, and printers each day. The constant use of office equipment by multiple people increases the chance of spreading illness, creating clutter, and causing the build-up of oils and dust.

Cleaning and disinfecting office technology helps to keep you and your employees healthy.

 

 

Lengthen the Life of Office TechnologyCleaning technology extends life of equipment

Cleaning and disinfecting office electronics can help you save money. The longer your technology operates efficiently, the less money you will have to invest in repairs and replacements.

 When dirt builds up on your devices, over time the gunk and grime can cause your machines to malfunction. As technology is used, the device collects residue, such as dirt or oils from employees’ hands or face.

Accidents happen. Employees will spill drinks or drop crumbs on keyboards. Once grime builds up on keyboards, the keys can jam and cause issues with key stroke function. Dust build-up has the same effect on computer mice. Build-up in a computer mouse effects the ability to click or move smoothly across surfaces.

Oils from skin causes technology to look grimy. When computer screens or keyboards are touched, oils will remain causing the devices to be unsightly. Oils can also destroy the usability of electronic devices, dirty fingers can cause wear on keyboards and cause letters to fade off.

 

 

Increase in ProductivityA clean office increases productivity in employees

Allergies make working productively difficult. If your employees suffer from allergies then dust, dirt, and debris in the office can cause allergies to flare up. Regularly cleaning and disinfecting office equipment keeps your office space a little friendlier for your employees that have allergies.

Having a cluttered environment can also affect office electronics. By preventing clutter, you are preventing accidental spills or other mishaps. Having items such as drinks or food near technology, can be harmful if an accidental spill happens. Cleaning and disinfecting your office is a great way to provide a clean environment for employees and a safe environment for your office equipment.

Setting a regular schedule to clean and disinfect technology is important, and it takes time to kill bacteria that grow on devices. If your employees are spending too much time cleaning their office space, they are spending less time being productive.

At D’s Cleaning Services, we have the industrial grade equipment and disinfectants needed to clean and disinfect technology and your office space. Let us take care of your cleaning so you and your employees don’t have to.

If you are ready to have a clean and sanitary workspace for you and your employees, give D’s Cleaning Service a call at 225-572-9497.

the 5 dangers of a Dirty Facility

The 5 Dangers of a Dirty Facility or Construction Site

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Cleaning, Health, services

Make Sure Your Facility is Cleaned Regularly to Prevent These 5 Dangers

When working on a tight deadline or on certain projects, cleaning may not always be on the top of your priority list. It’s easy to let dust pile up and debris to become a forgotten decoration in the corner. Allowing your facility to become dirty, however, can severely damage your company.

Maintaining a clean environment for yourself and your employees will prevent costly injuries and consequences. Don’t let proper cleaning slip from your priority list because you could end up facing dangers and spending more money than ever.

 

  1. Slips and Fallsprevent slips and falls by routinly cleaning your dirty facility

A dirty facility or construction site can become dangerous when proper cleaning is not constantly kept up. A fine layer of dust or spilled liquid can easily cause a walkway to become hazardous. Chunks of debris from construction or other projects can also cause employees to trip and injure themselves.

A cleaning company can make sure your walkways and facility floor is kept clear of dust and spills with regular cleanings. With clean floors and unobstructed pathways, your employees will be less likely to slip and fall, saving you and your employees from a costly injury.

 

prevent allegies and sickness with routine facility cleaning

  1. Allergies and Sickness

Millions of people suffer from allergies and asthma. A dirty facility can make it hard for your employees to breathe. It can even trigger asthma symptoms such as chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing.

In addition, a dirty facility is likely to lead to sickness when bathroom and kitchen areas aren’t properly sanitized on a regular basis. When your facility causes your employees to feel sick, the work produced may suffer in quality.

 
  1. Bad Reputation and High Turnover

Unhappy clients tend to talk, and you can bet they won’t be chatting positively about a dirty facility either. A poorly maintained facility will leave you with a poor reputation as people spread the word.

Bad working environments can also cause a high turnover rate because employees are not likely to enjoy working in an unsanitary place. You’ll spend more time and money constantly training new employees when you don’t have a cleaning crew keeping your facility clean and clear.

  1. Efficiency Decrease

With a high turnover rate and employees having to maneuver around debris and hazards, work efficiency will greatly decrease. You’ll find that the same work takes twice as long to complete when your employees have to worry about cleaning on top of doing their own jobs. For example, if your employee has to pick up chunks of dry wall from a path before walking through, he or she will be forced to hold up their work.

Hiring a cleaning company to clean your facility or construction site can ensure that your employees stay focused on their jobs. A clean facility means employees can work efficiently without interruptions to their jobs.

 
  1. Broken Equipment

Dirt and grime build up is often a cause of equipment malfunction. Grime can cause the deterioration of critical systems or parts by reacting to substances or corrupting technology. Keeping your facility clean can help ensure that your machinery and equipment properly operates for a longer period of time.

It’s better for you and your wallet to prevent the need to replace a costly machine by keeping your facility clean with a professional cleaning company.

A dirty facility can cause many problems for you and your employees. To maintain a safe and clean environment, call D’s Cleaning Service. With construction cleanup services and contract services, we can come clean your facility or site when you need it most. Daily, weekly, or only when you need it, we can ensure your place is cleaned on your schedule. At D’s Cleaning Service, we’ll help you keep your facility sanitized and the dangers minimized with proper facility and construction cleanup.

4 Ways to Keep Your Office Smelling Nice

Have you ever walked into a place and been assaulted with a horrible smell? You probably couldn’t focus on anything else because a bad odor can be extremely distracting. Keeping your office smelling nice is important to an efficient office because it allows people to focus on the task at hand.

D’s cleaning offers many services to help keep your office fresh. In addition to cleaning services, here are some helpful tips for an odor-free office.

 

 Open a WindowMake sure to have a fresh smelling office, open a window for fresh air.

An office usually contains a lot of people, so it’s natural that it will become stuffy. Nothing is more refreshing than fresh air. Get rid of stale office air by opening a couple of windows on a nice day. Opening a window will circulate the old air and give you and your co-workers a breath of freshness while also eliminating any unwanted odors.

Add Some Fresh Flowers

Adding fresh flowers to the office space will not only add a pleasant smell, but it will also be appealing to the eye. You may also want to invest in some office plants. Plants such as indoor palm trees are recommended because they act as natural air purifiers and add a little character.

Regular Cleaningsgoodofficesmell_header_2

An essential part of keeping your office smelling nice is making sure your bathroom is cleaned on a regular basis. Cleaning your bathroom once or several times a week, depending on your office size, will help make sure none of the smells leak into the rest of the office.

If you don’t have time to deep clean the office every week, you may consider hiring a cleaning team. A cleaning company such as D’s Cleaning Service can keep your bathroom and overall office clean with regularly scheduled cleanings.

In between your offices’ regular cleanings, you can keep your office smelling fresh by investing in fresh smelling, but not too over-powering, soaps and scented oils. Keep in mind that some employees and clients may be sensitive to strong scents. In addition, have a spray bottle of air-freshener in the bathroom.

Keep the Carpets Clean

Many business owners may not know, but carpet often causes bad odors in your office. Keeping up with regular carpet shampooing is important in order to keep down unpleasant smells. You don’t want to have a client come in for a meeting and take their business somewhere else because they got a bad impression from the horrible odor in your office.

Regularly deep cleaning your carpets can reduce odor in your office and keep potential clients from walking out the door.

When you need general office cleaning or deep carpet shampooing for odor control, call D’s Cleaning Service. We are available whenever you need us, even if you have a big spill emergency.
