When it comes to house clearances, we’ve got the skills, experience and customer testimonials to prove that we’re experts in our field. We undertake house clearances across Worcester, Cirencester and all areas of Gloucestershire, but what you may not know about us, is that although our specialism is house clearance/removals, a part of our package is also cleaning. This means that our clients don’t need to hire separate cleaning, rubbish skip and van services… because we’re all 3 in 1.
We conduct cleaning to a professional standard so that properties are ready for vacant possession. With that being said, over our many years in the industry, we’ve developed some fantastic house clearance cleaning tips that are both helpful to you and kind to the environment. Here are some of them:
1. Get a reusable mop
Re-using a wet mop can lead to all sorts of hygiene/disease issues as the mop still retains the bacteria from the last time you cleaned. Buying throw-away mops aren’t good for the environment because they just pollute the planet by ending up in landfill/the ocean. Purchasing a reusable mop which you can wash in your washing machine is a great way to keep floors clean and stay environmentally friendly.
2. Use scented disinfectant
Disinfectant is a must if you’re cleaning a property. It’s a great idea to buy scented disinfectant to make your home smell pleasant as well as look sparkling clean. Additionally, a lot of the scented disinfectant you can buy are dilatable; meaning they last longer so you’re buying less plastic.
3. Use a lint roller to remove dust
We’ve all been there, you’ve done a full dust of your home, you’re just ready to put the duster away, you turn around and bam, the dust has settled again. A great way to avoid this (as much as you can) is to use a lint roller to collect the dust so you can be sure it’s not going to settle on your surfaces.
4. Use vinegar
We know what you’re thinking, vinegar?! But yes! Vinegar can be a great cleaning product for removing water stains, cleaning coffee makers and also shower heads. You’ll also save on buying more plastic cleaning products by using something you may already have in your cupboard. Be sure to do some research first to make sure you’re using the right type of vinegar on the right products.
5. Use a squeegee on your carpets
If you’re thinking of buying new carpets, why not try and give them a new lease of life before taking a chunk out money of your savings? You can use a cheap ‘squeegee’ (a window cleaning tool) to pull any dirt/hair out of your carpets and then follow this by giving them a good clean/hoover. We’ve seen unbelievable results online of people using use these low cost tools to transform their carpets.
