Spring Cleaning Tips from GSR

Dreading spring cleaning time? Feeling overwhelmed and exhausted already? Take a deep breathe, focus, and follow some great cleaning tips by our team at GSR! 

The Preparation

Never start a cleaning process by thinking on the chores you have to do. Rather, keep the end result in mind. Think of the sparkly clean house, the beautiful lounge or the well-groomed garden that will make your family feel relaxed and happy. Now with that image in mind, gear up and start preparing by making a check list. You should be having the following things handy:

– Cleaning supplies

– Paper towels and cleaning rags

– New brooms and mops

– A working vacuum cleaner

– A cleaning brush

Don’t procrastinate going to store and getting these supplies. There’s nothing worse than having to clean yourself up during your big spring cleaning to run to the store for a new bottle of Windex.

Gear Everyone Up

One of the best ways to make spring cleaning fun and engaging is getting everyone to help in and assigning them various tasks. Get your kids (if they are old enough) to pack their toys up and organize their room. You don’t want to waste time picking up toys or re-arranging rooms when you’ve got to do the cleaning. Ask your spouse to help you do the dishes if possible. And don’t cook for the day. You’ll be tired. There’ll be chemicals and dust and lots of germs. So better to order.

Getting Started with the Day

Get up early and put on some comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Dress all the way down to your shoes and put your hair up. Take a few minutes to gather all your cleaning supplies and get going.

The biggest mistake to make is to try to do it all at once. Take it one room, one area at a time. If you have anyone around who can help you, then divide the rooms. You could the bedroom while the helper can do the kitchen. This works much better than trying to do 10 things at once. It will also give you a great sense of accomplishment to see each clean room.

Some Cleaning Tips

When cleaning a room, always start from the ceiling. Use a long broom to sweep off cobwebs and the dust that accumulates in ceiling corners. Clean the fans too because they absorbed the most moisture and dust. You’ll be amazed at how dust actually sticks to the fan panels. Once done, start dusting the furniture. Keep working your way down cleaning counters, windows and windowsills, furniture. When all done, give the carpets a good vacuuming. Make sure to go under the bed and move furniture around if necessary. You don’t want dust accumulating in unseen corners.

The bathrooms should be dealt with the last. Infact, if you’ve got a helper, you can ask them to do the bathroom (they may put up a fight!) while you do the rooms. When you get to the bathrooms, start by spraying some all purpose or bathroom cleaner on all the appliances, especially anything that may have some build up on it, like the soap dish in the shower. Pour some Clorox in the toilet. Allow the cleaner to soak in while you get started on the ceiling, windows and counters. By the time you get around to the sink, shower and toilet, all you need to do is wipe them down and give the inside of the toilet a quick scrub with the brush.

Oh and you don’t have to lose your head while doing the cleaning. Keep cool and take breaks to drink tea or water. Don’t take too long though or you won’t be motivated to finish it all! Once done, sit back, enjoy the view and relax!

Cleaning Shower Doors

A shower door adds to the beauty of your bathroom, however, with all that moisture and humidity, they also tend to get pretty dirty. If you don’t clean them atleast once a week, they become dull and dirty. Don’t want that happening right? Time to start cleaning shower doors! GSR’s cleaning team is back once more with some helpful cleaning tips for you.

There are recommended ways to clean glass shower doors that will maintain its sparkle and shine.

Use Ajax Professional Ultra Bathroom Cleaner:

The best recommended product for cleaning shower doors is Ajax Professional Ultra Bathroom Cleaner. Comet has developed a spray on a liquid that is non-abrasive and is especially used for glass, vinyl, and metal components of a shower door. It is a liquid spray that is easy to apply and wipe off, however, you need to give the product time to work, especially if soap scum (a heavy buildup that comes from the talc in bar soap) is to be removed from the shower door.

P.S – If you want to avoid the formation of soap scum because of the soap bars, then it’s better to use liquid soaps. Safe and easy to store.

Remove Excess Moisture from the Shower 

Another important cleaning technique for shower doors is to squeegee after showering. It removes excess moisture from the shower and avoids water spots that can be difficult and almost impossible to remove. A plastic squeegee is a shower door’s best friend, and should be included in any bathroom cleaning kit.Do not use the metal squeegee as that could damage the shower glass and create scratches.

Clean the Shower Door Weekly

A shower door should be cleaned weekly to maintain optimum cleanliness and shine. Frequent cleanings and use of the squeegee will reduce the need for heavy cleaning and scrubbing. The longer you keep a shower door uncleaned, the tougher it will be on you. So, in order to keep your shower door looking as good as new, maintain the cleaning routine and use recommended cleaning products.

It’s not enough to just build a beautiful bathroom. You need to maintain it and keep it clean and sparkly because this is the place where you find the most relaxation. It should be germ free, mold-free and grime-free!

Toilet Cleaning Made Easy by GSR Cleaning Services

Ask someone to name their most terrified household chore and you’re very likely to hear “cleaning the toilet” as a response. No one likes the dirty work that comes with keeping a commode clean, but it has to be done.
Harpic Apology TVC

We have seen toilets that we can’t un-see 🙂

Here are a few tips that will make this painful process more efficient, tolerable and effective. Start following these suggestions today, and you’ll save yourself time, money and effort.

White Vinegar

To remove unsightly rings, pour one or two cups (two cups if you have hard water) of white vinegar into the toilet each month to remove current rings and keep new ones from forming.

Baking Soda – Removes The Odor

Baking soda has hundreds of uses, and here’s one that can help remove unwanted odors and keep drains clog-free: once a week, pour one cup of baking soda into the bowl, let it sit for 30 minutes, then flush. You’ll notice a pleasant smell and a clear drain after several weeks of repeating this process.

Clean Safely

When cleaning the bathroom and/or toilet, remember to always follow the directions for use found on a product’s packaging. Be especially careful not to mix products in the toilet bowl, as it can produce harmful and/or toxic fumes. It’s also a good idea to wear rubber gloves and goggles if you use a manual or automatic toilet brush, in order to prevent splattering of water or cleaner on skin or in your eyes.

To avoid situation become out of control, We do recommend Harpic Toilet Cleaner at least twice a week to make you toilet seat clean.
