Need a Quick Clean… We have you Covered!

With the holidays upon us and guests coming and going, it does not save us much time to get our homes in order from Thanksgiving to Christmas, then Christmas to the New Year’s festivities.  So Maids and Moore had you in mind.  We offer one time cleanings that we ensure will suite your needs.

Our most popular and in demand cleaning is our Deep Clean. This type of cleaning is used when a home is occupied. It’s what we call the floor to ceiling cleaning, also know as a “spring clean”. This clean is used by customers that want that once or twice a year cleaning, to clean up before or after events or parties, and before and after company is coming to visit. This type of cleaning is required when you sign up for weekly, bi-weekly and monthly services. It is what we call the First Initial Cleaning. Who knows, maybe after the first of the year we can become a part of your New Years resolution! For more details or a quote, click here.

Next, there is our list clean which is a type of cleaning in which you determine your budget. In this case, customers know exactly what they want done. Instead of cleaning the entire home,  Maids and Moore cleaners work in order of a prioritized list given to us by the customer. We always encourage customers to allot a reasonable amount of time for the cleaning tasks which they need completed. For more details or a quote, click here.

We hope that this makes your festive season easier and creates time for you and yours.  We have live representatives ready to speak to you Monday through Friday during normal business hours at 1-844-GOT-DUST. Call Now! Get your one time cleaning spot reserved today.

Preparing for the Holidays

In less than a week, extended family will be parking on your sofas and recliners, utilizing your facilities, and bringing dishes and platters from infinity and beyond.  Here are a few pointers to help you prepare for your families’ arrival and feast.
2aa
1. Forget the space that Tupperware takes up in the fridge. After your festive holiday meals, grab gallon sized and quart sized zip lock baggies instead. This saves space in the fridge and eliminates additional clean up once all the scrumptious left overs are gone.

2. Ahead of time, set out the pretty platters you want to use to display your gourmet cuisines on. Use clear saran wrap to cover the dish to make for an easy clean up.

3. Prepare the guest bathroom.  First, gather all personal items from the bathroom. In place leave fluffy clean towels, wash cloths, and hand towels. Stock up on toilet paper, a new tube of tooth paste and even some new spare tooth brushes. A new bottle of body wash goes further than a bar of soap and 2 in 1 shampoo saves your out of town guests from having to run to the local drug store last minute.

1aa
4. Kid proof your home.  Put all valuables up for safe keeping and designate a room or area in your home as a play area for kids and all of their toys.

5. The Sniff Test. Did you know you can’t discern the true scent of your own home because you are used to it? That makes it tricky to know how your house really smells. But here are our best tips for making sure your house smells GOOD:

*Wash everyone’s bedding. Give animals a bath. Take out the trash and clean litter boxes and animal cages. Again, those things stink even if YOU cannot smell them. Grab your favorite room deodorizer and light a candle!  Of course the aroma of your favorite desserts will also be filling the air. Clean your kitchen and bathrooms thoroughly, using great smelling cleaning supplies. Vacuum carpets and dust furniture — dirt stinks! Of course you can always just call Maids and Moore and we can help create some time in your busy schedule. Call us today to reserve your spot at 1-844-GOT-DUST.

Tip or No Tip

7a0c4b9c-dd6e-406b-8014-72ca769f2b99
Should I leave a tip for the maids? A question we are often asked. It is customary to tip your waiter/waitress, valet service, and hair stylist. What about your maids? And if so, how much is appropriate?  
 
While Maids Moore does not expect tips, as we ensure to provide quality service always, we do appreciate the gesture when you do leave a tip as a professional courtesy towards the maids services provided to you. 
 
We do not solicit or expect a tip but it is at your discretion, as a customer of ours, to determine the amount and if it is appropriate or not. Some of our regular customers do tip during the holidays to show their appreciation to the maids who have provided quality service to them all year long. Some even offer it randomly, as they feel it is appropriate, but it is never expected, simply appreciated.  
 
This small act of kindness gives our girls the peace in knowing the quality they provide makes a difference. By being able to Create time for Busy People that alone is enough for our maids as they strive to serve and help to make peoples lives a little bit smoother.

Cleaning Supplies Too Dirty to be Clean?!

Cleaning-Service-Austin-TX

Nobody likes the smell of a sour sponge.  How about that mop that looks like a dirty Komondor dog. Yikes! Well if you enjoy your pristine home and take pride in your outstanding housekeeping skills, you probably know that the trick is to have clean cleaning supplies.  You do not want to clean your home with something dirty.  The best slate is a clean slate.  Now, if this is something you have never thought about, let’s think about it: As
we clean our counters with that infamous sponge. The same sponge we use to clean the dishes, the cutting board full of chicken juice (yuck), and the spilt chocolate milk that the dog had started to lick off the floor. To then clean the kitchen table with right after dinner.  Yummy! Right?  Makes sense that we’d be spreading germs and dirt.

Okay don’t freak out let’s just apply some basic cleaning habits to stop anymore germ spread and dirt smears.

img_1252Let’s start with our mop.  Mops can be one of the nastiest things in your home, besides your sponge.  If you are using the old bucket to mop system, just like the sponge, this is a place that is damp that bacteria loves to grow on.  By simply soaking your mop in a tub of bleach and water after each use, ring it out till dry and make sure to hang it up in a cool dry place, to completely dry before the next use. Here at Maids and Moore we use the dry mop method.  By using a microfiber mop with washable mop heads we avoid the risk of germ spread and bacteria growth allowing us to change heads from house to house. We also use washable terry clothes to place under the microfiber mop head, to clean four foot sections at a time, with a light mist of all purpose cleaner. This ensures that we are not just smearing dirty mop water and germs from one part of the house to the next.

Back to that kitchen sponge, as we already determined earlier our kitchen sponge gets used more than anything in our cleaning supplies for more than one thing.  It has been proven that a majority of sponges test positive for numerous forms of bacteria that can make us sick as well as be deadly to us.  To get rid of anything that might be lingering on it simply place your sponge in the microwave for 1 minute after using each day.  You can also run it thru the dishwasher by placing it on the top rack just be sure to ring it out immediately after the cycle is finished.  Your sponge should be evicted after 2 weeks in your home.  While this may seem wasteful, it’s better safe than sorry.  Also, be sure to never let you sponge sit in a pool of water. Make sure it is sitting out to completely dry, the sponge should never stay wet.

I know what some of you are thinking.  Forget the sponge I use dish rags.  While this is also a great alternative these too can hold many germs as well. Your dish rag should not sit out after two days for the same reasons, not to mention the smell they get after some time.  If you are washing your dish rags and towels and they smell sour simply wash them with half a cup of baking soda and nothing else and run it through the cycle. Tada! The stink is gone!!

IMG_0900Last but not least, our vacuum.  It gets around from pet hair clean up on the baseboards and couches, dust bunnies all thru the house, dust mites from under the bed, to vacuuming our headrest on our recliners. If you are using a vacuum with bags, be sure to replace them before it gets full.  If the bag is full it loses its power to suction and just pushes the dirt out that won’t fit in the bag throughout different places in your home.  For bag less vacuums, be sure to empty the canister after each use. There is always a chance it could leak and if you have sucked up any live bugs and their families you will just be moving them to a new location in your home you would probably rather them not be. Don’t forget your attachments and rollers these too could use a good whipping down regularly.

Mold got a Hold on Your Life

 

It is wet, dark, and humid. Conditions for IMG_1958one of the most common issues that all moms fear. MOLD. While living in Texas has its perks the humidity is enough for that mold in our homes to grow at the speed of light. Like most of us we clean our homes come back in a few days and BAM! the mold is back. No worries we can help.

One of the first tips is to learn how to control the humidity levels in your home in areas such as the showers and bathroom areas. By simply keeping the shower doors and curtains open or drawn back you can make sure that there is enough ventilation to keep the moisture from being trapped.

Once the mold is spotted it should be cleaned up immediately. Mold can cause many health issues and some are a lot more sensitive to it than others. Especially our kids and fur babies.

IMG_1961

 

To remove mold from hard surfaces, while using soap and water or even some commercial products helps, the best and most effective way is to use household laundry bleach. By simply spraying the affected areas with a solution of 1 cup of bleach to 1 gallon of water you can remove the harmful mold as well as the yucky black stains it leaves behind. Caution in doing so make sure windows and doors are open to provide fresh air as well as to wear non-porous gloves and protective eye ware.

 

 

 

In occasions the mold will get under the sealant and unfortunately once it has it gets into the pours of that sealant and the sealant will have to be removed to get rid of all the mold. So be sure to check all of your sealants in the bathroom area or even kitchen areas for weak spots that need to be replaced. By doing so you could save yourself a lot of trouble and keep your family from getting sick.

If there is one thing we know its family first. Keeping our family healthy and clean is apart of our family owned and operated mission here at Maids and Moore. We hope this tip helps you to tackle those moldy issues. Of course, if you need help we would love to help.
