My former experience at a local maid service, has helped me to understand the value of a clients time and has helped me develop a system of housekeeping services and techniques.  A system of tips and tricks that I want to share with you!

My previous experience (30+ years) as a crew team leader of Residential Home and Office Cleaning Specialists, where I did the kind of work that clients found wonderful to come home to.

Clean-It-Guide-Cleaning-Tips

Clean-It-Guide is a friendly space for people who love to keep their homes clean, as well as those of you who would rather spend an entire day at the DMV than to clean your home! We like to talk frankly about quicker, cheaper, easier and, if possible, greener ways to keep the kitchen, bathroom and the rest of our homes spic and span. Sometimes this means doing things the old fashioned way (thanks grandma!) and other times it means using some wild and crazy method from the future. Either way, we’ll help you get it clean.

Because some of our methods are somewhat unorthodox and because every cleaning situation is unique, we really encourage you to do a spot check before going ahead with any of our tips. And, of course, speak up! The more we know about your specific mess, stain or clean up duty, the better advice we can give. Really, though, we don’t want to (and won’t be) held responsible if you use or abuse our tips and end up burning your house down or tyedying your carpet. This hasn’t happened yet, but you never know. Just be careful, is all we’re saying. Wear proper protective gloves and eyewear and for God’s sake, don’t mix any cleaning chemicals unless you know what you’re doing.
