Little Things Keep The Happy Home Tickety-Boo!

Little Things Keep The Happy Home Tickety-Boo!

Trying to keep the happy home clean and grub free in the winter is such a trial.  This is made even more challenging by introducing dogs into the equation.   For some reason cats are not quite as bad but they do have paws and have been known to drop themselves into muddy flower borders before jumping up to re-enter via a favourite window or catflap.   That tell tale line of paw prints across a beautifully clean floor. . .  With…

Home Cleaning Needs Oomph From Professionals

Home Cleaning Needs Oomph From Professionals

Today’s fitted carpets are beginning to take on a slightly old fashioned feel about them.  Just as when it became very bad form to have fluffy carpets in the bathroom and toilet areas.   There is absolutely no possibility of getting carpets 100% clean in such areas and the lack of hygiene is worrying.   Most people are now taking out carpets in these heavy tread and hygiene reliant areas – replacing carpet with fully sealed wooden floor coverings is best.  However…

Busy Family Life Calls For Cleaner Tactics

Busy Family Life Calls For Cleaner Tactics

There’s a young family lives near me – Mum is a brighthappy and very busy woman, usually with one child firmly attached to her right hip and the other child hurtling around on a new on trend scooter.  The mum works unsocial part time hours, evening and weekend shifts some drive away. The dad of the family goes out unbelievably early to commute into the City and he gets home 13 hours later, tired, but always in time to bath…

Chaos Calls For Professional Declutter & Clean Up

Chaos Calls For Professional Declutter & Clean Up

When you have to look after your own house, it’s up to you how clean and tidy you let it stay.  When you are away and have someone else popping in for any reason, you want to make sure you leave it as bright and shiny as you can.  This was very much a moot point when some neighbours went away on their holidays – the previous family were outstandingly clean, tidy and when I did my house checks, I…

Keeping Critters Outside By Keeping House Cleaner

Keeping Critters Outside By Keeping House Cleaner

We have to be so careful at this time of year to make sure the outside stays just there and to keep our interiors clean and bug free.  I was out in my garden over the hot and humid weekend – lots of nice flying things that I did like, being birds, butterflies and a couple of moths, earlier in the day.  I was sat inside, near the patio door and my eye was caught by a dashing movement that…

Professional Cleaning Protects & Extends Life Of Carpets

We all know that carpets are a relatively new item in the household list iof ‘must haves’ and in fact they are beginning to wane in popularity in some quarters again.  The desire for carpets only in one or two rooms is now becoming the norm.  Certainly not wanted in the washrooms, wcs, kitchens or anywhere else that gets grubby and needs constant refreshing and almost sterilising.   However those houses that do still boast a magnificent wool carpet are very…

For Short Term But Thorough Room Sorter

For Short Term But Thorough Room Sorter

Sometimes I look round my nice spacious family house and realise it has the beginnings of a care worn look . . .  Not the image the busy ‘she who does’ needs to project, that’s for sure.   I have learned that tackling any situation immediately is the only way I can operate.   My instinct is to engage the services of a professional carpet cleaning company – but failing that, my route to mental salvation is to take one room at…

Spring Carpet Beating To Prepare For Summer

Spring Carpet Beating To Prepare For Summer

There’s no doubt that in the ‘good old days’ we knew where we stood with the seasons.  Autumn clocked in around October – very reliably in time for bonfire night as a rule.  We’d have dampness and leaves fluttering down for a couple of months and then winter would really make an entrance just before Christmas.  Here we would suffer the ravages of really bad rain, freezing temperatures, icicles the lot.  Once spring returned in April, the spring clean started…

Those Little Poppets Can Batter The Carpet

The easter holiday season will be upon us before long.  Those lovely lazy days of playing with children who have a large number of very chocolatey treats.  Yes, the easter egg fun is wonderful for them – not healthy, but jolly good fun all the same.  But as we all know, getting chocolate out of a pale honey coloured carpet can present a major problem.  The first thing is to scrape up any residue of the chocolate – a palette…
