Keep Your San Diego Home Cleaner for Longer

Prevent dust by optimizing your home’s humidity levels between 40% and 50%. Low humidity causes static electricity, and more static means more dust will become attracted to objects and fixtures around your home.

You can help prevent soap scum from accumulating on your shower doors by treating them with automotive windshield rain repellant spray as needed. This will create a protective layer that encourages water to bead off the glass. If you need to remove soap scum that has already accumulated, make a paste with baking soda and vinegar, and apply it to your shower doors. Allow the mixture to sit for 15 minutes, then scrub it clean with water.

Make sure your stone countertops are sealed and protected. Because stone countertops are porous, they are susceptible to staining from wine, juice, soy sauce and oils. In order to test your seal, pour some water on your counter tops and watch to see if it beads. If it doesn’t, it’s probably time to reseal your counters. Making sure to keep up with this is important to keeping your counters looking new and clean.

Shield your furniture from stains! Protective furniture sprays and carpet sealants guard against stains and spills by causing liquids to bead on the surface and prevent absorbtion. Make sure you’re reapplying these sealants annually. This is especially important if you have a children or pets.

Some other quick tips to keep your house cleaner for longer include; moving furniture at least 6 inches away from the wall, putting together a touch-up kit and keeping it handy for small messes, using a throw rug in high traffic carpeted areas of your home, and doing a 10-minute “power clean” every day to prevent messes from getting out of control.

Having a system for dealing with the cleanliness and organization of your San Diego home can save your sanity, your time, and your home’s value over time.
