Because I am a teacher, I am limited to the summertime to get things done. When most people are spring cleaning, I am smack in the middle of standardized testing at school. So, school is out for summer (YEAH!) and I have been busy this week getting re-organized around the house! First we tackled the closets, and I ended up with three boxes of stuff that went to a local consignment shop. Hooray for de-cluttering! I thought about having a garage sale, but it’s too hot and that’s too much work!
Next, I took on the floors! All of my baseboards got cleaned, as well as all of my flooring, including underneath all the furniture! I am thankful that I don’t have big, heavy, rugs or else I would be searching for Oriental Rug care tips to try and figure out how to manage those! I did need some spot removal tips to get a few tracks of dirt from the carpeting in the kids’ rooms and after I was done with them it looked so much better! How is it that a family of four sometimes looks as if they generate enough mess for a family of 10? I have often thought of having a professional carpet cleaning service come in, such as Chem Dry Carpet Cleaning Service, so I may look into that before the summer is over with.
Have any of you ever used a carpet cleaning service? How did you like it? I’d love to hear! After getting all the spots out of the carpets, I did the fans and light fixtures and WOW, do those things get dusty! I am just about done now and ready to enjoy my summer. I am not sure how much we’ll be indoors but when we are I can admire all of my work! What are your best tips for keeping your house clean? We’d love to hear them!
