Winter Cleaning Tips

Many of us start feeling that urge to deep clean our homes once spring rolls around. In fact, the “Spring Cleaning” ritual is practically hard-wired into most homeowners’ minds. But think about this…why spend so much time cleaning right when the weather turns nice? Why not do it now, when we’re stuck indoors anyway? OR… Just call TOP NOTCH CLEANING TODAY 740-312-9090 and schedule a spring cleaning!

Snow and rock salt is tracked inside every day from your kids and family, the fireplace is circulating ashes, the heat’s running constantly, and with no open windows, all that dust is just hovering around. Having a deeply cleaned home is great for your abode and your psyche.

1. Clean Your Furnace

Change your furnace filter once a month. This helps in making your home more energy efficient, and keeps your air cleaner. And don’t forget to look at the furnace itself. If it’s coated in dust and grime, or if there are dust bunnies circulating around underneath, make sure to vacuum them up.

2. Deep Clean Your Carpet and Floors

I don’t know about you, but I live in Michigan and my floors get trashed in the winter. Salt collects in between every carpet fiber, and the hardwood floors take on an unpleasant whitish sheen from melting salt water. To combat this, take the time to steam clean your carpet and scrub the floors. If you don’t have a place for snowy boots and shoes, put out a couple of cookie sheets (the kind with the raised edge) for them to drain by the door. This will help keep that mess off the floors.

3. Dust

Homes get very dusty in the winter because the air is so warm and dry. Dust your home’s surfaces from top to bottom to help keep the dust to a manageable level. Don’t forget ceiling fan blades, the tops of window moldings, and the tops of books – all of which are often overlooked and can collect dust easily.  Also, give your lighting fixtures a good dusting. Dust easily collects on them during the winter too, and can make your indoor light look dingy. This will make a big difference in brightening things up. Many people also opt to get their home’s air ducts professionally cleaned. This will not only drastically reduce the amount of dust, germs and allergens floating around, but it can also help your furnace run more efficiently.

4. Clean the Windows

If you have a fireplace or burn candles, your windows likely sport a thin film of soot on the inside, which can block precious sun. Give all your windows a good wipe down. I use vinegar mixed with water, and it works great.

5. Clean the Kitchen Ceiling

Think I’m kidding here? Your kitchen ceiling likely has a film of funk on it without you realizing it, mainly from all the moisture, fumes and smoke resulting from cooking. The same goes for the walls, especially those around the stove. Mix a small amount of mild dish soap in a bucket of warm water and gently scrub with a sponge, using only a minimum amount of water (not enough to drip). Of course, if you notice any discoloration or streaking, stop immediately.

ST. CLAIRSVILLE – In one way or another, everyone has been affect by cancer, whether it be through you or a loved one. In between all of the doctors visit and treatments, little things like cleaning your house tends to fall through the cracks. That is why Top Notch Cleaning is offer a free cleaning to anyone whose family member or even themselves have cancer.

“The Mother’s Touch program is something I have had in mind ever since we were opening the business. My Mother, Denise, passed away when I was young, only about seven or eight years old from cancer,” said Austin Straub, Owner of Top Notch Cleaning. “We have a staff member whose family member is currently battling a form of cancer. Everyone has been affected by cancer in some way and I just know it is a need that is out there.”A Mothers Touch

The free cleaning will be down by one of Top Notch Cleaning 20 employees. Those who do get the free cleaning are not obiligated to use Top Notch Cleaning in the future. If the recipient or their family would like a cleaning in the future, Top Notch will make it as affordable as possible. All that they ask is that the residence be within a 30 mile radius of St. Clairsville and to be flexible when it comes to the scheduling. They plan on doing one or two free cleanings a week.

Top Notch employees will wear Top Notch polos with either black pants or khakis and will have an HHR with the logo on the side. The free cleaning will include high and low dusting, floors, sinks and counter tops and making the beds, doing dishes and taking out the trash.

“When you are going through Chemo and different treatments for cancer or when you are a family member driving back and forth and helping someone through that, the last thing that is on your mind is cleaning and with the holidays coming up, it can help take a burden off,” said Straub. “If we can help (ease that burden) with a free cleaning then we are doing our job and serving the purpose of The Mother’s Touch program and that is where I got the name, obviously, is in honor of my mother.”

Top Notch Cleaning has been open less than a year and currently has 20 employees. They have five day crews with a couple evening shifts. More information can be found on their website www.tnclean.com.
