Have you ever wondered how doctors and nurses don’t get sick all the time? I can guarantee you they are not spraying themselves with Lysol or spreading bleach everywhere. They are, however, using these tips to prevent the spread of illness once they have encountered a sick patient. You should try these tips (even before someone in your family gets sick) to prevent the spread of the cold or flu virus throughout your home.
It is extremely important to do a walk-through of your home with the company in which you plan to hand your keys over to care for it. We cannot stress this enough because every client is different and they have unique furnishings. Unless verbally told or shown, a cleaning technician may not know or understand your particular furnishings or the hard work you have put into refinishing a piece (for example: an old antique dresser) as well as the money invested in each piece. Sometimes when we change our home décor, our cleaning methods need to be altered as well. Communication with your cleaning technician and company is key!
We received an email from one of our Austin area clients alerting us to her new home furnishings that had a chalk painted finish. We are so glad that she contacted us and made us aware of the change. We needed some vital information from her regarding the piece so that we could ensure that we serviced it correctly. It was so very important for her to tell us how long ago it was finished and what wax it was finished with so that we could know how to care for it.
