Answering Your 12 Frequently Asked Home Cleaning Questions

Sharing is caring!

Here are twelve questions about cleaning homes that people ask frequently. We’re answering them to help you save time and money so you can be more independent and not need someone else to do what you can do easily by yourself.

However, if you hire someone just out of the goodness of your heart, so they earn their bread, that’s really beautiful.

Home Cleaning Question #1: Cleaning Windows

Window cleaning spray should be used to clean windows, preferably one that sticks to the glass and does not run. Ensure the tools you use are clean to avoid spreading dirt. Wipe the panes using microfiber cloths or squeegees to avoid streaks.

Home Cleaning Question #2: Cleaning an Oven

Keeping an oven clean can be a daunting job, but you can do it by removing any loose food and using oven cleaner (unless the oven is stainless steel) while wearing rubber gloves. The grease can then be removed by wiping it away after 30 minutes. Use a stiff brush to remove any remaining dirt from the shelves after soaking them in warm, soapy water. To remove an older type of film, wash the racks with a solution of baking soda mixed with lemon juice.

Home Cleaning Question #3: Cleaning a Carpet

It’s really important to clean the carpet in your bedroom regularly, as it can get dirtier than a toilet seat. Make sure you vacuum your carpets once a week, and you can also refresh them with a natural cleaning spray. Before you use the carpet cleaner, pre-treat stains with a stain-removal solution.

Home Cleaning Question #4: How Do You Clean Blinds

Dry clean the blinds with a microfiber cloth or duster, from top to bottom to ensure that if there’s any dust that falls. The more stubborn marks can then be removed using a damp cloth on plastic blinds, while a diluted detergent can work well on wooden blinds. Depending on the label, some blinds can be machine washed, but if you do that, make sure they are in an airtight bag.

Home Cleaning Question #5: Cleaning a Washing Machine

Debris filters need to be cleaned and emptied regularly. To remove the emergency drainage tube, locate it and unplug it. If there is any trapped water or debris, it should be released this way. Occasionally run a hot empty wash in the main drum of the washing machine. A gentle wipe with a toothbrush or a wipe on the seal should be sufficient for the door and detergent drawer.

Home Cleaning Question #6: Cleaning a TV Screen

Cleaning screens with microfiber cloths is best since they remove dust and smudges without harming the anti glare coating. You can also use these wipes to clean remote controls, which can be dirty. Pre-moistened wipes are useful for more durable marks and can even be used for remote controls, which are often quite dirty.

Home Cleaning Question #7: Cleaning a Leather Sofa

Often the center of a living room, sofas are essential pieces of furniture. Cleaning a leather piece requires frequent dusting and a clean, damp cloth to wipe away spills. Please be careful not to overwet the cloth or you could lose a watermark. Whenever possible, use a solution of equal parts of water and vinegar on stains, and then wipe them with a new microfiber cloth.

Home Cleaning Question #8: Cleaning a Mattress

Hoover both sides of the mattress with the upholstery attachment on a vacuum. Baking soda can be mixed with cold water and applied to stains. Trying diluted washing-up liquid or upholstery cleaner is an option if the stain remains after 30 minutes, but always test it on a small corner first, so you do not damage the  mattress.

Home Cleaning Question #9: Cleaning a Toilet

Even though the job isn’t exciting, it is essential. Using a bleach-based toilet cleaner, disinfect the toilet bowl from underneath the rim to achieve the best results. Brush the sides while wearing gloves. Be sure to cover the exterior, including the lid, the tank and the flushing device, with a disinfectant spray. After waiting for ten to fifteen minutes, use a clean sponge to wipe everything down.

Home Cleaning Question #10: Reducing the Dirt Inside the House

Make sure you wash your doormats so that they can be machine-washable.

Pets should be brushed before entering the house to prevent dirt and hair from spreading.

So dirt can’t build up, wipe as you go.

Home Cleaning Question #11: Removing Wall Marks Safely

Scuff marks on walls and paintwork can be easily removed by using soft white bread. It will work like an eraser to swipe the area with white bread scrunched up into a ball. Trust us on this one!

As an alternative, you can use Flash Magic Eraser.

Home Cleaning Question #12: Removing Shoe Scuff on Hard Floors

To clean, use a damp cloth and bicarbonate of soda. A nail polish remover containing acetone or WD-40 is recommended for laminate flooring.

It is dangerous to use furniture polish on a hard floor, regardless of the brand. If nothing else seems to work, you can also use some silicone-based furniture polish on a microfibre cloth to remove stubborn scuffs.
