House Cleaning When Injured

When you suffer an injury in an accident, you  may work with a personal injury attorney in St. Louis to pursue monetary compensation for your related damages. What many people don’t realize is that their lawyers can help them get more than financial reimbursement for their injury-related expenses – they can help them get back to their normal routines by referring them to life coaches, personal trainers, real estate agents, and even professional cleaning services who can ease the burden of recovery.

How To Deal With Pet Hair

You may have noticed that your little pup or kitty cat is shedding more than usual. As the seasons change so do the coats on your fuzzy creatures. Unfortunately, the hair can get annoying. You can only take so much of Mia or Milo’s fur ending up on your furniture and subsequently your clothes. Luckily for you, St Louis Cleaning Team specializes in residential house cleaning, so fur and fuzz is something we’re familiar with.

Whisk Brush
One of our secret weapons when it comes to pet hair is a whisk brush. This durable tool has harder bristles than a regular broom making it easier for you to sweep away things that tend to stick to surfaces because of friction, static, etc. We usually run this over couches and chairs a couple of times in a quick pulling motion (back to front). The hair should fall to the ground and then you can vacuum or sweep it up from there. Read more

4 EASY DAILY TASKS TO KEEP A CLEAN HOUSE YEAR-ROUND

Whether your house is bachelor or bachelorette pad,  or you’ve got kiddos and pets, there are easy and simple ways to stay ahead of cleaning chores and keep the house clean without crazy amounts of effort. Here are some easy and simple ideas for calming the chaos and getting a house that’s clean and presentable:

 

#1.  Find a Home

Many people tend to accumulate things—from toys to tools to crafts and books; there are many households that are overwhelmed with stuff. Finding a place, a bin or a bucket or a drawer, for every item in the house will make major mess and disorganization disappear fast.

 

#2. Keep the Kitchen Sparkling

A dirty kitchen seems to signal that rest of the house is likely on the same dirty page. Clean countertops, paperless tables and lack of dirty dishes equal an organized and inviting home.  Keep disinfectant wipes on hand to use for every day cleaning.

 

#3. Bedroom Bliss

On the same note as the kitchen, a bedroom space that is full of piles of dirty clothes and disorganized bath items will make the rest of the home echo the same sentiment. Keeping the bed made, clothes put away and used towels off the floor will go a long way towards setting the tone of a clean house.

 

#4. Trash the Trash

A kitchen with an overflowing trashcan and a recycle container that is piled high is a sure sign of a dirty disaster. Make sure to stick to a daily habit of emptying the garbage and taking out the recycle bin to be dumped.

How To Clean A Smelly Garbage Disposal

There’s no denying that having a garbage disposal can make life easier. However, these devices don’t see as much cleaning as they should for two reasons: The first is that we just kind of forget to maintain them. The second is that most of us have been conditioned to fear the disposal since childhood. There’s a good logic behind this, as the appliance can be dangerous if used incorrectly. Nonetheless, the end result of leaving this tool unwashed can be an awful stench permeating throughout your kitchen. Lack of cleaning could also lead to your disposal not working properly.

Fortunately, it is possible to keep these handy devices washed. You just need to make sure you’re extra cautious as you work. So, with that in mind, learn the best way to clean a garbage disposal, including how to clean the garbage disposal’s rubber flange.

Note: Garbage disposals have sharp blades that can be very dangerous. To avoid injury, it’s important to make sure your disposal is off and to be especially mindful of what you are doing when cleaning any part of this tool. It’s also a good idea to unplug the appliance when cleaning around the drain or flange with your hands.
