Londoners, Keep Your Home And Office In A Perfect Condition

Everybody wants to have a comfortable place where to work or to relax. The first and most important thing in order to make our home and work place as cosy as possible is to make sure it is clean and tidy. Below you will find a few useful tips on how to achieve that goal with no efforts.

1. Clean the tiles – the most important rule that applies here is: there is no need of polishing! Just broom them regularly and use a clean wet cloth to wipe them and they will look like new for years. You can add some dish soap in the water when cleaning the tiles. Always change the water that you use for cleaning them when it becomes dirty. Using dirty water to wash the tiles or water that has too much dish soap in it means to cause extra dirt to the tiles surface. It is highly recommended to clean your tiles by hand in order to make sure they get completely clean.

2. Smudges of hard water. The best way to clean them is by using detergent based on acids. You can purchase them from specialised stores and the most popular of them are based on phosphoric acid which is about 4 to 6 percent of the content. If you need a detergent with a higher concentration of acid, you can purchase one with 8 to 12 percent acidity which makes the cleaning even easier. These substances are harmless to most of the surfaces in your home or working place especially if you wash them away from the surfaces as soon as they have been used. If the areas are extremely dirty, you can apply a thicker layer of the abstergent and wait for about a couple of minutes before cleaning it with a hard brush. Remember to always use gloves when working with chemicals. Always read the instructions and do not mix two or more different types.

3. Mini blinds – use a soft and wet cloth to wash them. It will remove the static electricity that makes dust gather all over. The same rule applies for cleaning TV and computer screens.

4. Pets’ hair on the carpet, the rugs and on the furniture. For removing them you should use a special brush that you can find in every pet store. If you do not have such a brush around you can simply use a scotch tape to gather the hair. Another way is to use the rubber bottom of tennis shoes. In order to remove hairs from your rug use a vacuum cleaner with a brush nozzle.

5. Wooden flooring. Use a vacuum cleaner at least once a week and mop it with a clean wet cloth every day in order to avoid gathering dust on it. You can use a home – made mixture for cleaning it – just pour a quarter glass of apple cider vinegar into about three litres of warm water. Be careful not to pour much water on the flooring and always make sure to perfectly dry it, if you want to keep it shining for longer.
