Summer is a busy time for all of us and the school holidays are finally in full swing, so it’s difficult to find any spare time to get things done around the house.

Working from home effectively often requires a fully operational, well-organised and well-equipped work space. If you are constantly having to work at a messy or cluttered desk space, you are almost certainly not operating at your most effective.

In order to do so, you should look to maintain a clean and well-organised work space as well as clean upholstery and furnishings. Here are some top tips for organising your home workspace.

There’s a good chance that the papers piled on your desk are becoming outdated, so you need to make sure all these papers are either thrown out or filed accordingly. Create a filing system that works for you and you’ll have no problem keeping your desk space paper-free.

There are some items that you are likely to require on a regular basis, such as pens, your laptop, notepads and planner. Other items you are likely to need less often such as a stapler, paper clips or tape should be stored away neatly.

Your home office should be free from any distractions, so make sure that you are based in a location within your home that is both quiet and free from any gadgets or toys that might invite you to step away from your work too often.

Apple Clean have plenty of experience with both domestic and commercial cleaning services, providing high quality services to clients across the South East. Contact us today to find out more.

We often work tirelessly to keep our homes spotless but the importance of people cleaning up their own space is fundamental if you’re hoping to achieve a clean home every day of the week. Dusting, vacuuming, wiping and polishing are all common chores to do around the house, so what can the kids do to ensure their bedrooms are as tidy as possible?

If you’re having trouble motivating your kids to keep their bedrooms tidy, here are some essential bedroom cleaning tips you can pass on to them that will certainly make it easier to declutter any bedroom.

Target the Drawers

Drawers can quite easily become cluttered with clothes both new and old, especially if you’re constantly updating your wardrobe. It’s also one of the best methods of keeping clutter out of eyesight!

The best way to organise your drawers is to designate individual spaces in the drawer to a specific type of clothing. This means you’ll be able to see everything upon opening the drawer and know exactly where to put clean washing.

You should also be realistic about the amount of clothes that can fit in a single drawer, doing your best not to overcrowd one of the compartments. You shouldn’t have to be searching vigorously through clothes to find what you’re after.

Get Hold of Some Storage Bins

Storage bins are a really good way of keeping items off the floor. They are also great storage methods for things you need but aren’t likely to use on a regular basis. In other words, they are great for heaps of toys and books, or perhaps even some seasonal clothing.

Storage bins don’t cost a lot and they can be placed anywhere in the bedroom. An alternative would be old cardboard boxes which you could label and sort with different items.

Stop Shopping!

Shopping for new items of clothing, gadgets and other accessories will only make it harder for you to utilise the space you have available. It’s hard for some of us to know when to stop stocking up on things, so try not to buy things you know will only be taking up more space.

When it comes to buying clothes, you should do your best to throw out as many clothes as you buy to efficiently monitor the space available.  We all have clothes we don’t really wear anymore, so target these before stocking up.

If you’re looking for specialist cleaning services to get rid of any tough carpet stains, make sure you get in touch with Apple Clean today. We make the most of the latest cleaning technology to leave domestic and commercial properties spotless.

With Palm Sunday having just passed, we’ve now started Easter week and it’s time to prepare for what can often be a very busy time for many across the world. There are some countries that see it as a tradition to carry out plenty of spring cleaning jobs prior to Easter Weekend, which originates from an ancient Jewish tradition that focuses on cleaning in time for the Passover Feast.

The bank holidays are not far off now and many of us will be welcoming family for dinner and plenty of chocolaty Easter treats. So if you haven’t yet found the time to get some domestic upholstery cleaning done and need to occupy your time during the Easter break, here are some of the cleaning jobs you might want to prioritise.

The Kitchen

The kitchen is somewhere you’ll be spending plenty of time before the Easter weekend, whether it’s to prepare the dinner for the family or decorate some delicious chocolate nests and Easter eggs with the kids. Start by making sure the oven is in good condition before cleaning other food storage areas including the fridge. You should also make sure all surfaces are sanitised and ready for plenty of cooking and baking.

The Garden

If we’re lucky enough to enjoy some warm sunshine over the Easter weekend, we may well promote the idea of hosting an enjoyable Easter egg hunt with kids. In this case, you’ll need to make sure the garden is in good shape with the grass mown (if it is dry enough) and plants watered.

Bedrooms/Bathrooms

You might find that your home turns into accommodation for friends and family over the Easter weekend, so make sure that all bedrooms are dusted and any dirty laundry is washed, including bed sheets and linen. Bathrooms should also be thoroughly cleaned, especially if they are to be used by your guests.

The Living Room

For those who like to celebrate Easter with family gatherings, expect to host a few games and perhaps an evening film over the Easter weekend. In order to prepare for this, make sure the living room is well dusted and sofas are either cleaned or reorganised to look good as new once again. Also make sure that there’s a place for everyone to sit down!

If you’re heavily occupied over the Easter period but need to make sure your home is clean in time for the weekend, call Apple Clean today and take full advantage of our in-situ curtain cleaning service as well as all our other specialist domestic cleaning services. We look forward to hearing from you.

 

 

As the days get longer and we move ever closer to the Easter break, more of us will be taking to our kitchens to prepare all kinds of Easter treats and delicacies, while we’ll also take spring as the perfect platform for cooking more often and making the most of numerous ingredients that are now coming into season.

Of all places to keep clean, the kitchen floor is one of the most important. Many of us take our beautiful tiling finishes for granted and feel that all is required is a quick sweep when in truth, a deep floor clean is essential. If you’ve already started your spring cleaning schedule, consider whether you’ve thoroughly cleaned your tiled kitchen flooring.

Tiling is highly durable and the perfect option for any room that’s likely get wet or stained over time. Any surface can quite easily return to its stunning original state with the help of some deep cleaning techniques, such as stain removal or the application of Apple Clean’s  Scotchgard solution. Here’s what you need to do to ensure your tiled floor is in the best possible condition in preparation for the months ahead.

Sweep & Vacuum to Start

Loose dirt and crumbs need to be collected and disposed of before you get started on any deep floor cleaning as this dirt can quite easily develop into troublesome grime when mixed with anything wet or damp. Start with a broom and complete the job with a thorough vacuum of the entire floor.

Mop the Floor

Using warm, soapy water that’s fresh, mop the floors until you’ve covered every corner. Warm, soapy water is all it takes to keep tiled flooring bacteria-free and in great condition. Remember to replace the water if it gets too dirty during the mopping process.

Dry the Floor

Once you’ve mopped the entire floor, use a dry cloth to wipe away any excess water for a shiny finish. New dirt can quite easily mix with a wet surface causing accumulations of tough grime and grout which is much harder to get rid of.

Targeting Grout Between Tiles

Dirt can quite easily become trapped between tiles and accumulate, resulting in grout and difficult stains. Use an old pencil or eraser to get between these tiles and get rid of any particularly stubborn grout patches.

Vinegar and baking soda are great for homemade cleaning solutions as they break up grout and mildew so that it’s much easier to clean.
