Cleaning Marble Is an Investment That Requires a Special Kind of Care

 

Marble is a gorgeous, classic type of rock that is used in homes as floor tiles, countertops, and even on fireplaces. However, as beautiful as the rock is, cleaning marble has its own set of challenges. If you have marble in your home, you know that it is expensive and sensitive to stains, etches, and scratches. To help you keep your marble glossy and fresh, D’s Cleaning Services has provided cleaning tips to ensure that your marble stays in the best shape.

 

Clean the wine spilled on the marble as soon as possibleClean Up Spills as Soon as Possible

This may seem obvious as you should clean up any spills on any surface right away. However, when it comes to marble, one spill of coffee could ruin your perfect marble floors or countertops. The most important spills you should watch out for are ones with acidic substances such as wine, coffee, fruit juices, tomato sauce, sodas, and even certain cleaning products. If an acidic liquid is left on the marble, you could end up staining or etching (dulling its glossy appearance) the surface.

 

Avoid Using Bleach, Ammonia, and Vinegar Products to Wipe Down Marble

Harsh cleaners are known to etch marble, which will make the material look dull and more prone to scratches. Instead of using the all-purpose cleaners, try the classic soap and water routine. Simply mix a mild dish soap with water and wash down your marble surface. Avoid using citrus-based soaps or acidic cleaning agents with your soap and water as this may weaken the porous stone. After you have washed down the marble, be sure to dry it off with a soft towel to prevent any water stains.

 

Clean marble bathroomBe Careful with the Amount of Dirt That Gets Tracked Inside

You spent a lot on your marble floors, so you should keep dirt away from them as much as possible to avoid etching and stains. Safeguard your marble floors by using slip-resistant floor mats around entrances to minimize contact with outdoor debris and dirt. You should also sweep your floors regularly. Vacuums may scratch the marble. Instead, wipe down your floors often with a dust mop for a safer clean.

 

If You Need an Extra Hand, Call the Professional Cleaners at D’s Cleaning Service

Cleaning marble floors and countertops require a special amount of care, which involves extra time and work. Our professional cleaners at D’s Cleaning Service are equipped with the right tools and pay close attention to detail so you can be sure that your marble will look its best after cleaning.

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 pollutants, rainy thunderstorms, and even the occasional ice or snow in Louisiana can really muck up your windows.

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.

 

Need a Hand with Your Winter Cleaning? Call D’s Cleaning Service

Your to-do list to get your home ready for the holiday season might feel overwhelming as it is, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to sacrifice having a winter fresh home. D’s Cleaning Service is here to assist you in all your winter cleaning needs. We make sure your home looks as dazzling as the star on the top of the tree.

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.

cleaning with vinegar

Pros and Cons of Cleaning Your Home with Vinegar

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Cleaning, Home

Vinegar Is Used in Cooking and Cleaning, But Is It the Best Option?

When it conatural cleanersmes to cleaning your home on a budget, people have turned to vinegar as an affordable way to disinfect their home. It is useful for cleaning properties and its ability to be used as other products such as dressings or in pickling. There are several homemade cleaning products that use vinegar as one of the key ingredients due to its ability to disinfect.

While many homeowners choose to only use vinegar as their cleaning product, there are others who only trust store-bought cleaners or a reputable cleaning service to refresh their home. There are positives and negatives to using either a natural, vinegar cleaner or a commercial strength product.

 

PRO: Vinegar Is a Natural Disinfectant

Many low-cost, homemade cleaning product recipes have vinegar listed as one of the main ingredients. That is because vinegar is a strong acidic solution, which means it works as a disinfectant. Using vinegar to clean out drains, microwaves, or stovetops is an effective way to remove those tough grime buildups.

 

CON: The Smell Can Be Overwhelming

Perhaps the biggest downside to using vinegar is the strong odor it leaves. The strong, sour smell can linger around a home for several days. For many, the smell can be overwhelming. Some try to mask the strong scent by mixing vinegar with water, but that only dilutes the power of the acidic cleaner.

One important part of cleaning your home is leaving it with a refreshing scent. The smell of vinegar doesn’t create a refreshing scent like commercial cleaners can. The reason people prefer professional cleaning services is because they not only thoroughly clean your home, but they use cleaning products that leave your home smelling fresh.

 

PRO: Using Vinegar is Environmentally Friendly

Vinegar is an inexpensive, non-toxic cleaning solution that does not have the harsh chemicals found in traditional cleaners. Homemade cleaners often do not have additives or hazardous chemicals like many industrial-strength products have. This makes it safer for pets and children to be inside while you are cleaning.

 

CON: Natural Cleaners Are Not as Effective

According to a 2000 study, researchers found that vinegar cleaners were not as effective in remwoman dustingoving pathogens and dirt when compared to commercial products. That is because store-bought cleaners have added cleaning agents in their ingredients to make the products extra effective against bacteria and grime.

On top of vinegar being less effective than commercial cleaners, vinegar-based cleaners can cause damage to your floors and countertops. Avoid using a vinegar-based cleaning product on surfaces such as hardwoods, granite, marble, and ceramic. The acidity of vinegar causes rock and wooden surfaces to lose their shine and can even permanently damage your floors or countertops.

 

It All Comes Down to What Works Best for You

Some homeowners prefer to minimize the amount of chemicals that are used inside their home and prefer to use natural products such as vinegar and lemon juice. However, you may not get the best clean that you would get from a commercial cleaner. If you want your home cleaned right, call D’s Cleaning Service. We clean and disinfect your home with the most effective products and equipment to get rid of harmful bacteria in a safe manner and make your place feel brand new while smelling fresh and clean.

Where Dust Hides in Your Home

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Cleaning, Home

Out of Sight, Out of Mind Is the Way Dust Builds Up in Your Home

During a routine cleaning, we tend to clean the areas in our home that we notice daily. The cloudy windows are sprayed down, the dirty carpet gets vacuumed, and even our toilets receive a good scrubbing.

When it comes to dusting, we generally wipe down the window blinds and flat surfaces like desks and dust in homecountertops. For those with dust allergies though, cleaning the basic areas of your home may not be enough to stop the sneezing, stuffy nose, and itchy, watery eyes. The areas in our home that are hard to reach or often overlooked have the worst dust buildup.

If you are still experiencing symptoms after you finish the basic cleaning, it could be from the dust hiding around your home. Here are some of the places that dust accumulates, and that we tend to neglect in our regular cleaning routine.

 

Ceiling Fans Blades

We underestimate how much dust our ceiling fans actually gather. One would think the dust would simply fall off the ceiling fan blades when the fan is on, however, dust continually builds up on our fans even when in use.

Why is there so much dust on our ceiling fans? It is the same reason dust sticks to our TVs and stereos. Static electricity attracts the dust particles and holds it in place like Velcro. That is why these areas tend to have the worst dust buildup.  

 

On Top of Door Frames and Cabinets

We open doors and cabinets every day, but often forget how dusty the door frames and cabinet tops get when we do not see them daily. Grab a stool or ladder and see how much dust there is waiting to make you sneeze.

If these spots haven’t been cleaned recently, you will probably see a sheet of dust covering the entire surface. By removing the dust and cobwebs from the top of your door frames and cabinets, you can make a refreshing difference in the environment of your home.

 

Under Furniture

When removing dust from our home, we generally forget to clean under the furniture. Dust bunnies find homes in hard to reach areas such as under our beds, couches, and desks. Even though it may be cute to think of little bunnies under our bed, it’s normally best to remove them with a broom or a long duster.

 

Baseboard Moldings

You spend so much time cleaning the floors by mopping, sweeping, and vacuuming that it may be easy to overlook the baseboards. If you look closely, you can see how much dust sticks to the sides of our walls.

dust in homeThe next time you are scrubbing floors, be sure to also clean the dust off the ridges of the baseboard molding to remove the dusty buildup and reduce the allergens in your home.

You may not mind the amount of dust around your home because it is out of sight, however, for people with dust allergies, a large pile of dust could trigger a severe allergic reaction. Even if the people in your household do not have dust allergies, guests and visitors who come into your home may have dust allergies.

For a thorough and safe cleaning, call D’s Cleaning Services to handle the job. When you hire a professional cleaning service to remove the allergens in your home, you can save time and eliminate the hassle of removing the piles of dust that are hidden around your home.

Kiss Holiday Stains Goodbye

Kiss Those Holiday Stains Goodbye

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Carpet, Cleaning Tips, Home

Remove the Holiday Stains from Your Home with Ease

After two long months, the holidays have finally come to an end. You’ve said goodbye to your guests, stowed away your decorations, and moved your Christmas tree to the curb – what else could there be to handle? Unfortunately, while you may have picked up the holidays for the year, the stains the season has left behind could still be causing a problem.

Anything from increased foot-traffic to dropped food and spilled drinks may have left your home’s carpet and upholstery in a less than tidy state. The holidays can leave behind some of the toughest stains to face, but with these simple steps, you can banish them until next season.

 

Oh – Christmas TreeChristmas's tree sap causes holiday stains

Your once beautiful spruce may be kicked to the curb, but its sap is the gift that keeps on giving. Even once your tree is gone, the sap that remains can put your home’s carpet in a sticky situation.

In order to remove tree sap effectively, it is best to first allow the sap to dry. Once the sap is dry, you can manually pick the material out of your carpet’s fibers. Once the solid sap is removed, you can remove the remaining stain and residue. The remaining residue can be easily treated by blotting the stain with warm water and dish-washing fluid until the stain is removed.

 

The Gravy Train has no Breaks

Gravy is the perfect sidekick to all our holiday favorites from the juicy turkey to the creamy mashed potatoes. However, gravy is not the best companion for your home’s carpeting. One holiday dinner can turn your home into a huge gravy-covered mess.

It is best to handle a gravy stain when it is fresh, and your first step should be to scrape off excess gravy from the stain’s surface. Once the excess gravy has been removed, sprinkle the stain with either cornstarch or baking soda and let it sit for about 15 minutes or until it absorbs the grease.

Once the time has passed, vacuum the baking soda or cornstarch up. Once vacuumed, with a clean cloth, dab the stain with a dry-cleaning solvent of your choice and blot the stain until the solvent is absorbed. You may repeat this until the stain is removed.

Clink, ClinkRed wine spills are problematic holiday stains

Whether it is accompanying a Christmas feast or a New Year’s toast, a glass of wine is bound to have made an appearance in your home this holiday season. Spilled drinks are inevitable but can become a big issue when the drink spilled is a glass of red wine.

Attend to a wine stain as soon as possible by first blotting the spilled wine with a clean cloth to remove any excess liquid. By doing this, you will keep the stain from spreading further and soaking deeper into your carpet. After blotting, combine vinegar, warm water, and dishwashing fluid to create a wine-removing solvent. Blot the stain again with this mixture until the stain is removed.

Happy Guests, Muddy Shoes

Your holiday guests may be gone for another year, but sometimes they leave behind a lasting gift – muddy shoe-prints. The holidays bring increased foot-traffic to your home, and this increased foot-traffic brings both mud and debris to your carpet.

When you find mud on your carpet, begin cleaning by scraping off dried mud and vacuuming the excess. Afterwards, apply a dry-cleaning solvent and blot the stain until it is removed. If this doesn’t fully remove the stain, you can apply hydrogen peroxide to the stained area as well. Let the peroxide sit for an hour before returning and blotting the stain until it is removed.

With the holidays coming to a close, you can finally banish the stains your carpet accumulated this season. If the holidays have worn you out and the stains seem overwhelming, a professional cleaning company may be the solution for you. With years of training and high-grade cleaning tools, D’s Cleaning Service can take the hassle out of the post-holiday clean-up.

Rent Your Unit Quickly with a Clean Apartment by Hiring a Specialized Apartment Move-Out Cleaning Company

Cleaning a unit after a tenant moves out helps ensure a new tenant moves in quickly. With an overall clean feeling and a noticeably clean kitchen and bathroom, potential tenants will be more likely to sign a lease. An apartment move-out cleaning company can do a lot to help you fill that empty unit.

 

When Tenants Go Bad

Sometimes you have tenants that are lemons. You don’t find it out until after the tenant leaves but when they do, you discover that they didn’t take care of the property at all. Actually, it may even seem like they made an effort to destroy the property.

The recently vacated unit will have bathrooms so dirty that you can’t enter without becoming nauseous, kitchens with unidentifiable food everywhere it shouldn’t be, and carpet stains that convince you to leave your shoes on at all times. When you’ve had this type of tenant, it’s time to keep their deposit and put it to good use by hiring a cleaning company that tackles the big messes.

From scrubbing out bathtubs with an inch of dirt caked on to disposing of the substances in the kitchen sink, an apartment move-out cleaning company can be a life saver. If it comes down to it, the apartment cleaners will even bring a pressure washer. If you’ve had an extremely disrespectful tenant, you’ll most likely want to hire an apartment move-out cleaning company that specializes in extreme cleaning situations.

 

The Rooms that Sell

An apartment move-out cleaning company can make your rooms fill upLike houses, apartments are leased based on key features. The kitchen, bathroom, and master bedroom are all rooms in an apartment that prospective renters will be looking at closely.

Apartment move-out cleaning companies are aware of the key selling rooms in an apartment that can make the difference between a signed lease and an empty unit. With particular cleaning techniques and a defined process, cleaning companies get key rooms sparkling.

In the bathrooms, toilets are scrubbed and disinfected, showers are scoured, and sinks are polished. Top that off with mopped floors and dusted baseboards and you’ll have a bathroom that shines. The kitchen is also cleaned thoroughly with stove and fridge wipe downs, sink cleaning, and floor polishing. Apartment move-out cleaning companies also know to clean the master bedroom with precision to impress all tenants. Windows, floors, and closets will be thoroughly cleaned so renters see themselves living there instantly.

 

An Overall Clean

Even the best of tenants will have created some kind of mess during their time of leasing. Maybe your tenants had pets that shed or perhaps they spilled wine on the carpet late one night. After a lease is up from any renter, you are bound to find at least minor problems that need addressing before renting the unit again.
