When it comes to cleaning your house, like most homeowners, you would want to handle it on your own. Fair enough, but before that, you may want to do some research on how to do it quickly and effectively. Importantly, you need to check out this post for some of the common cleaning mistakes you want to avoid. The mistakes can be something as small as using a feather duster to utilizing powerful cleaning detergents to remove the stain from your carpets. Yup! House cleaning is an art in itself, whoever claimed it was easy, need to do a rethink. You may have the requisite house cleaning supplies but you need to know how to use them. Do check out the tips and essential pointers posted below.

Removing the stain from your carpet

If this is your first attempt at home cleaning and you are not that well-versed on how to use it – then your best option would be to trawl online for house cleaning services in Auckland. But if you are hung up on handing it on your own, then you need to know one of the essentials of house cleaning – how much stain remover to use. Just re-read the instructions on the bottle and follow the given instructions closely. USE ONLY THE AMOUNT SPECIFIED and not more, for using too much stain remover on the carpet will only result in the stain setting in permanently. 

Loading too much in the dishwasher

Granted that you are bound to have seen those tele-ads which often feature working moms loading the dishwasher to the ceiling, only to have it all sparking and cleaned, at the end. Sounds like a dream, right? It is, in more ways than one – usually, these ads tend to exaggerate the utility of a certain appliance, for marketing purposes. And if you imagine that you would be able to do the same with your dishwasher, you would be in for a rude awakening. Loading too many dishes above and over the specified limit given in the instructions would only result in the dishwasher stopping halfway. And what’s worse, it may not function well, after the ‘dish one too many’ close encounter either. Make sure that you follow the given instructions to the letter.

Feather duster hang-ups

When it comes to using a feather duster to dust up your home, you need to realize that you would be better off with a vacuum cleaner. A feather duster just helps to move the dust from one part of the room to the other and the only result would be a very dust-ridden room, one that can become hard to breathe in. This is why it makes sense to use a vacuum cleaner or better yet, use a microfiber cloth. Using the cloth should enable you to clean the dust and grime off surfaces, effectively just as you can do with a vacuum cleaner.

Sticky utensils

If you are in the habit of using a garlic press and want to get it cleaned, then a dishwasher is a no. The simple fact is that both garlic and its residue tend to be quite sticky. So loading the dishwasher with the garlic press and other dishes is only going to result in some of the food particles sticking onto the press and in-between the gaps. You would be better off, cleaning the press with your hand, rather than in the dishwasher.

Dust your windows

Irrespective of whether you have one floor or two, it is a must to dust, clean, and wash all the windows. After all, you would need to let in all the natural light you possibly could, right? After all, who wants a dim-lit room, bordered with dusty windows which barely lets any light in? And that’s why you need to dust these windows at least once a week. Use a window cleaner to gently wipe them and use a different cloth to wipe them as well.

These are some of the house cleaning tips that you need to pay attention to, right away.
