Cleaning For A Reason


This year for National Cleaning For a Reason week which was April 18th – 24th, declared by Mayor Toby Powell of Conroe and Mayor Steve Adler of Austin, we wanted to host a volunteer day for business partners of our community to ‘Celebrate Life’. The purpose of this event was to help us raise awareness of this wonderful program offered FREE to our community and to help as many families as possible. A service of love, only possible because of our loyal customers, business partners, and volunteers in our communities and of course our community.


Our hopes for this volunteer day was to help as many families as possible and attract the attention of families from our communities to put knowledge out into our communities so that we can continue to help others. As we have learned that most people do not know about this wonderful FREE service to not just women but to men and children battling cancer.


We had several of our business partners volunteer their time to go into the homes of men, women, and children who are battling cancer, along with Maids and Moore management and staff, and provide a FREE cleaning service to these families to give them time for what really matters.


We are so grateful and honored to have such wonderful staff with a heart to serve and even more blessed to have fellow business partners to take time out of their busy schedules and jobs to help us give the gift of love through service.

Clean a Messy House Checklist

When you’re dealing with a messy house, you need to have a game plan in mind. Your strategy needs to take on leaning in a systematic, organized way while still maintain the flexibility to add a few custom wishes. Here’s a simple, clean a messy house checklist that can make cleaning less complicated.

Clean A Messy House Checklist

Clean A Messy House Checklist

The first thing to bear in mind is that your plan needs to be reasonable. It can be tempting to take on too much and then being unable to clean up the mess. When coming up with a plan, you need to start by deciding what you want to accomplish, and prioritize the really critical things and do them first.

Once you’ve prioritized what you need to clean, and what you don’t, and how deeply you can clean based on the amount of time you’ve got, you can start working the plan you’ve created. The checklist below ensures you don’t leave out anything important.

Cleaning Supplies You’ll Need:

•    Scrub brush

•    Microfiber Cloths

•    Dishwashing detergent

•    All-purpose cleaner

•    Disinfecting cleaner (for the inside of garbage bins)

•    Rubber or latex gloves to protect hands

Kitchen Cleaning Tasks

•    Clean the oven

•    Organize pantry

•    Wipe the insides and outsides of kitchen cabinets

•    Empty your sink by cleaning up all the dishes, pans and pots

•    Wipe down the stovetop

•    Clean inside the microwave

•    Empty trash can

•    Run the dishwasher and later empty it

•    Sweep and mop the floor

•    Clean the refrigerator

•    Change the kitchen towels

Bathrooms

•    Wipe the insides of cupboards and drawers

•    Inspect your medicine cabinet and get rid of expired, outdated and unused medication and dispose of them properly

•    Remove wastebaskets/rugs

•    Clean the toilet

•    Sweep and mop the floor

•    Wash or vacuum bath rugs

•    Change out hand towels and guest towels

•    remove dust

•    get rid of clutter

•    make sure there’s space to place shoes and hang clothes

•    vacuum or clean the floor

Living or Family Room Cleaning Tasks

•    clean and tidy sitting areas such as chairs and couches

•    dust

•    empty the trash can

•    declutter the room and other areas

•    vacuum or clean the floor

Bedroom Cleaning Tasks

If you’ve already dusted the room, removed clutter, vacuumed or cleaned the floor and tidied the closets, your bedrooms should be clean. To finish up, simply:

•    change bed linens and make the bed

•    return any furniture that you may have put out to vacuum earlier

•    fold laundry and put them in the dresser

Windows

•    use a streak-free glass cleaner and wipe with newspapers

•    if you have large and hard to reach windows, you can clean them with a professional squeegee

Maintaining a clean house is always much easier than cleaning a messy one. It’s crucial therefore to start by cleaning the mess so that your house is easier to keep clean. With this clean a messy house checklist, you should have an easy time ensuring your house is tidy all year round.

National Cleaning For A Reason Week with Maids and Moore

Cleaning For A Reason now expanding to service households with men, women, and children battling cancer.

Maids and Moore is celebrating Cleaning For A Reason Week proclaimed by the mayors of each division on April 18-24, to help raise awareness and funds to reach more families in need. Cleaning For A Reason has expanded to not only help women battling cancer but also men and children who are battling cancer, as well.
Since opening in 2008, Maids and Moore Cleaning Services has been teamed up with Cleaning For A Reason, an international nonprofit serving cancer patients. Over 11 years, Maids and Moore has generously donated house cleanings to more than 110 cancer patients throughout Travis and Montgomery Counties. “Partnering with Cleaning For A Reason has been amazing as it allows us to help cancer patients in their time of need by doing what we do best,” said owner Holly Moore of Maids and Moore. “We’re honored to donate the gift of a clean home to those fighting for their life. It is important for our company to give back and have a positive impact on our community.” Maids and Moore is bringing heightened awareness of the cause to Travis and Montgomery Counties during National Cleaning For A Reason Week, April 18-24. The goal is to help more households battling any type of cancer. During this special week and in celebration of their 11 years of donated cleanings, Maids and Moore will be taking on more charitable cleans. Maids and Moore has agreed to help cancer patients by cleaning at least 15 homes per month for two consecutive months at no charge. The only requirement is that the homes be within the company’s existing service areas of Travis and Montgomery County and surrounding areas.
Cleaning For A Reason partners with more than 1,200 residential cleaners throughout the United States and Canada to offer free house cleaning to any household battling cancer. Since 2006, the nonprofit and its partners have donated more than $11 million in services, helping more than 33,000 cancer patients. In 2017, Cleaning For A Reason was adopted by ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, joining the ISSA Charities arm.

Automated Window Cleaner

What are the important points to consider when buying an automatic window cleaner? To answer that question, you must first understand the basics. For one, a robotic window cleaner combines window cleaning technology with auto movements to clean. With the use of magnets and motor suction technology, the cleaner sticks to the windows. From there it will automatically clean your windows – from all edges. Below are some features in your home to consider before using an automated window cleaner.

The Type Of Glass

Automated Window Cleaner

First, you should consider the kind of glass surface your windows are made of. On one hand, there are models for cleaning uneven surfaces and rough glass surfaces. On the other hand, other models only clean those glossy and smooth surfaces. Is the window surface textured, frosted, filmed or patterned? Whichever the case, you must choose an auto window cleaner that can clean that specific glass surface.

Window Thickness

Besides the glass surface, you should also consider how thick your windows are. Every robot has a certain thickness it can clean. Hence, ensure you accurately measure the thickness of your window. Once you do, select a robotic cleaner that matches that thickness.

Window Shape

An auto window cleaner can only clean large windows that are square shaped. So if the shape of your window is circular or small, then do not buy a robotic cleaner.

Suctions or Magnetic Connectivity

Another point to consider is how the robotic cleaner connects – either magnetic or through suctions. If you go for a cleaner with a motor-powered suction, then you just need to place it on one side. Alternatively, for magnetic connectivity, you must strategically place another magnetic item on the opposite side of the window being cleaned. Each of these options has its benefits and drawbacks. For a motor-powered suction auto cleaner, often times it loses its connection and falls. Hence, you should get a security cord to make sure the auto cleaner stays put.

The Process Of Cleaning

Different robots use different processes of cleaning but most of them use brushes or pads. To make sure the glass surface is streak free and spotless; the robots feature a drying item like a squeegee. How many brushes or pads an auto cleaner has depends on its model. But in most cases, a robotic cleaner features a 2-step process. The first one is to wipe the dirt off and the other is to polish the window. Automated window cleaners have sensors that will tell them when they have reached an edge of the window. The automated technology makes sure the window is being cleaned edge-to-edge, and lets you know when it has finished cleaning.

Conclusion

Though an automatic window cleaner is very convenient, you should consider all these points before you buy one. This is to make sure that you get the right product for your needs. Automatic window cleaners utilize technology to make sure your window is entirely cleaned when it finishes. They are ideal not only for cleaning those hard-to-reach edges but for doing so effectively.

Clean House Tips

Are you looking for some efficient clean house tips? There are numerous methods you can apply to keep your house spotless and neat throughout. No one wishes to spend the entire weekend scrubbing floors, mopping, dusting, cleaning washrooms, vacuuming and doing laundry. In essence, this is the perfect time to relax after the long work week. Just before you get caught in the middle of a messy home, here are a few helpful house cleaning tips that you can employ to save yourself some time.

1. Make Your Bed When You Wake Up

Clean House Tips

Making your bed should be the first thing to do in the morning. The sight of an unmade bed in your bedroom is not so pleasant to look at, especially late in the day. This is just a simple task that involves tucking in sheets, spreading bed covers and sometimes replacing the bedding with clean ones. Making your bed can bring a positive change to your room by making it look clean and organized.

2. Make a Habit of Emptying Your Dishwasher Each Morning

It may sound like a challenging task, but it will only consume about five minutes to accomplish it. You should never overlook carrying out the daily emptying of your dishwasher in order to keep your kitchen clean throughout the day. On the other hand, emptying the dishwasher every morning will keep your dirty dishes from piling up in your sink. Having a pile of dishes in the sink will make the kitchen look messy, and be a breeding ground for bacteria.

3. Do Some Laundry Daily

You can spare some time to have fun across the weekend by devoting some time every day washing your clothes. In fact, you may start by washing a few smaller loads throughout the week to prevent the clothing from piling up. If you are not sure of what to clean, sort your laundry loads to make your work easier.

4. Skip your Traditional Mop

Clean House Tips

Instead of using a tradition mop, you should turn to a microfiber duster. This way, you will be able to make your home look amazingly clean and less contaminated within the shortest time possible. Research shows that using wet mops leads to bacteria growth in the mop head if not properly sanitized after cleaning. Using a microfiber mop with single-use pads can keep your home clean and free of contaminants. You can also alternate reusable pads as they can be washed in the washer after each use.

5. Use your Vacuum to Clean the Blinds

Cleaning blinds is a complex task because it requires more time than what you can expect. However, you can make it easier by using an upholstery attachment on the vacuum cleaner and within no time that dust will be out of your sight. Alternatively, you may wipe them using a dryer sheet placed in a pair of tongs to give them a fresh scent.

Final Thought

There are many useful clean house tips you can try to shorten how much time it takes to clean. It is better to perform small amounts of cleaning throughout the week to avoid a large buildup of chores to complete during the weekend. Whether you are focusing on routine cleaning, or need to deep clean your home, our team of professionals here at Maids and Moore will ensure your home is spotless.
