Isn't it ironic that the one place we use to clean our bodies daily is the one place we neglect to clean often?

Did you know that the main culprit for the image above is
Sludge In The Ice Maker? Ew!
When a restaurant goes through a health inspection, did you know many are closed down due to the sludge found in the ice makers? Now ask yourself when was the last time that you cleaned your own ice maker?
Last time, we discussed how to keep the kitchen sink free of bacteria and safe for our food. Please click here to review that blog. Today, we look at where so much of that food is kept, the fridge.
What Is That Growing In Your Fridge? Ew!
Last time, we talked about the first item in our kitchen that needs our cleaning attention, the sponge. Today, our important first cup of morning coffee is considered...
Reports have come out concerning the Keurig not being made with a proper way to take it apart and clean it. But at least 1 in 5 households have one, so we need to come up with a good cleaning solution.
The filter, if not changed, adds non-needed bacteria, lime scale and rust to your coffee. The water tank is holding onto water where bacteria and mold will grow.
The cup holder has holes to catch drippings, but it also holds onto the coffee and heats it up. So, let's keep it clean!
Have you ever noticed that your kitchen is the heart of your home? No matter what type of social gathering I have been to in someone’s home, the kitchen is usually the most popular area to hang out. The kitchen can also be the dirtiest, most germ infested area as well. From trash cans to chicken in the sink, the germs are setting and spreading unnoticeable to the human eye. If we consistently treat five particular areas in the kitchen, we can keep the presence of germs down and from spreading. In this series of blog articles, I will be focusing on five items in your kitchen that could potentially be making you and your family sick. So, let's begin with the first...

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.
