Things Many People Forget to Clean

If you’re like most people, you probably handle a much of your residential cleaning in Olney, MD, on your own. You might also be missing key areas that get left off of most chore lists. Life is busy, and it’s all too easy to forget about some of the things and spaces that need a little extra attention. Some of these include:

· Dishwashers

· Doorframes

· TVs and Computers

· Remote Controls

· Brooms and Mops

· Washing Machines

· Lampshades

· Shower Curtains

· Doorknobs and Switches

· Cushion Covers

· Underneath Appliances

That’s a long list, and any one of the things on it could harbor bacteria or other germs that quickly spread once your usual residential cleaning is done. To make sure you make the most of your chore days, it’s vital to leave no spot untouched that could compromise the fresh, healthy environment you desire.

Of course, you might not have a whole day – or even a few hours. If you work full time and feel overwhelmed just looking at a mop, you can still get the best results. You just need a helping hand. Try bringing family members or a cleaning service in for support to cover these commonly-forgotten areas and enjoy a thoroughly cared-for home.

How Often Bedding Should Be Cleaned

Any maid service in Germantown, MD, will tell you that cleaning bedding regularly is important for a clean, healthy space. You spend a lot of time lying down, and your sheets, pillow covers, and blankets can collect everything from dust and dirt to sweat and skin cells. That can create issues with breathing as well as managing skin conditions.

The good news is that it is pretty easy to clean these critical items, whether you have help from a maid service or not. But first, you’ll need to know how often to wash each part of your bedding. And the answer to that depends on your lifestyle. Let’s look at a few key elements to get an idea of how much work you might need to do.

To avoid wasting time, money, and detergent, you only need to wash most sheets and blankets as they get dirty. That means adjusting for average use. The average bed that’s slept in every night merits weekly or biweekly washing, while a guest room blanket might only need cleaning once every few months. For other items, like pillows themselves, optional protection from covers of various kinds can cut your cleaning duties down to two or three washes per year.

Hello 2020!

Happy New Year! It’s time to start fresh! As a new year begins, it’s the perfect time to make some changes in your life. Whether that means setting new goals, making plans, or making changes for yourself, now is a great time to do good things for you. One of the best ways to treat yourself as the year starts off is to give yourself the peace of having a clean home now that the holidays are over. We offer a variety of different cleaning options to get your year off to a fresh and clean start.


After a busy year and lots of activity in your home, things get neglected, and sometimes we forget to deep clean. There are so many surfaces and items in our houses that get overlooked, so here are some things to remember to clean, because you and your house both deserve a fresh start!


  1. Wash your pillows. This is such an easy thing to forget, but pillows easily collect oils, residue, and dust, so make sure you’re not letting any yucky germs into your bed.
  2. Replace your toothbrushes. Did you know that you’re supposed to replace your toothbrush every three months? It’s true!
  3. Replace old towels and linens with fresh ones. Do you have linens and towels that have seen better days? Maybe it’s time to replace them and start the year with a new set. You can even donate old ones to animal shelters and help keep animals warm this winter.
  4. Clean out junk drawers. Yes, we’ve all got one. It’s where old recipes, broken scissors, and everything in between goes to hide, and boy does it fill up quickly. Give it a refresh during your new year’s clean.
  5. Get rid of clutter. This is a great thing to do after the holiday season when new things are coming into the home! Walkthrough your home and donate the things you might not be needing this year.


For the projects a little bigger this coming year, give us a call and we would be happy to get your house off to a great start!
