We’re all 100% committed to ensuring our homes remain clean and healthy on a regular basis. There’s simply no debating the fact that clean houses are far more comfortable and relaxing to live in, run more efficiently, smell better and are prepared for any emergency that may crop up in the future.


Therefore, there’s no reason why people who care a lot about their cars shouldn’t apply a similarly detailed cleaning service for their vehicles.

For people who spend a lot of time in their car, it goes without saying that you want to be in an environment that is comfortable and safe to be in.

You want to have a sparkling windshield to see through, some freshly vacuumed upholstery and a generally attractive looking interior all the time and it doesn’t take much to achieve this. Car interiors are very easy to maintain, so here’s a step-by-step guide to cleaning up your cherished vehicle.

Step 1

Start by removing larger items and objects from the backseats and floors of your car that have been stashed or left behind, causing unnecessary clutter. The back seat pockets tend to hide all kinds of objects like this, so make sure you turn your car upside down when searching.

Step 2

Once all the larger objects have been removed, get hold of a heavy-duty brush and start clawing out the food crumbs and dirt from the seats, carpeted floors and floor mats. Remember to life the floor mats up first and put these outside of the car. Follow this up with a thorough vacuuming of the entire space.

Step 3

Lots of unpleasant car odours are actually the result of air filters being clogged up by stagnant food particles and dirt. Locate the air filter in your car and use a can of compressed air to blast away anything that could potentially cause musty odours.

Step 4

With the car all nicely cleaned up, put a new air freshener in and leave it overnight. From this point on, make a note to all passengers that you want any litter to be taken out of the car and thrown away. You can have a rubbish bin of some kind in the car for passengers to use if you own a family car.

Step 5

Cars don’t stay clean forever and the same goes with any household, which requires specialist curtain cleaning services every once in a while. Be sure to stick to a cleaning schedule, perhaps a deep clean once a month, so that you don’t fall back to square one.


Halloween is fast approaching, which for some people means the opportunity to host their own spooky Halloween party.


Whilst we’re likely to spend much of the evening rewarding children in fancy dress with a bucket full of chocolates and sweets, the party-fanatics are probably organising their latest annual Halloween celebration.

Due to the drop in temperature around this time of year, Halloween parties tend to take place indoors.

This means you could be left with quite a mess to clean up when the party’s over and the feeling of having to tidy up is more than enough to put you off.

However, if you’ve got a plan of action for the next day, you can stop worrying about carpet cleaning and adopt a much more enthusiastic mood about the event itself.

A Halloween Cleaning Schedule

Step 1

Start by going searching every part of the property where guests had access to for bottles, glasses and plastic cups. You are more than likely to come across some spills during this search, so equip yourself with any household fabric or floor cleaner and deal with it before it can stain.

Step 2

The sink is one of the most common places for drinks, bottles and cups to be dumped during a party. Go through the contents of your sink and get rid of any plastic cups. Any glasses can be separated and assorted on the counter. If you were also using plastic utensils, search for these as well and throw them out.

Step 3

The dishwasher will likely be your best friend in this scenario, so if you have one you’ve certainly got an advantage. Fill your dishwasher to the max and start it when it’s fully loaded. If you’re restricted to washing up yourself, simply go through all the items that need washing in the newly-cleaned sink.

Step 4

Rubbish can stack up faster than you might believe during a party, while household items and other shelf ornaments can also get unintentionally moved around. Carry a plastic bag around with you and throw away and rubbish you come across. When the bags are filled up completely, take the rubbish out in preparation for collection.

Step 5

Once you’ve carried out all the above steps, you can start focusing on a much deeper clean. Use a vacuum to get rid of any dust build-up, whether it’s the carpets, curtains or furnishings. Finish your cleaning schedule by tidying up the kitchen of all the glasses and utensils you sorted out previously.

One school finishes and the holidays start, you’ll probably notice a lot more of your time is spent at home, which can work both ways when it comes to maintaining a clean and healthy household.

Whilst there’s plenty more time to organise everything and keep rooms looking tidy, dust-free and presentable, there’s the issue of looking after every aspect of your home, from the bathrooms to the outdoors, especially as your entire family will be spending most of their time in or around the house.

To have your home fully prepared for what’s to come over the next couple of months, here are some useful tips that focus specifically on the common demands of the summer holidays.

Make The Most Of The Weather

Remember to make the most of what the summer weather has to offer. If you’re experiencing soaring temperatures, put some time aside to tidy up the garden, mow the lawn and potentially organise a space for activities and games should you have children in the house. It’s also a great time to clean the outside of your property, from the porch to the windows.


If you’ve got a conservatory or sliding doors that lead out to some decking, now’s the time to get these areas of your home in shape. Conservatories need to be de-cluttered as they can get particularly hot in the sunlight, whilst sliding doors can often be difficult to open due to a build-up of grease.


If you’re finding it hard to de-clutter your home, why not organise a small car-boot or garage sale outside your home? A lot more people will be out and about, so there’s no better time than the summer to try and advertise some of your unwanted belongings to the neighbours or tourists.


Summer is when files and other insects begin emerging from their winter slumber, so you can expect to see moths, butterflies, spiders and other creepy crawlies trying to invade your property. You can equip some insect repellent spray should the issue be getting out of hand, or carry out regular dusting to ensure there are no persistent spider webs.

Prepare For The Winter!

Finally, summer is a great time to think ahead for the end of the year when temperatures start falling again. You can get some excellent discounts on all the cleaning and maintenance products and services that you’ll usually require in the winter, such as boiler repairs.
