Prescott Maid To Order Offers Some February Cleaning Tips

Winter cleaning here in the Prescott area is far different than much of the rest of the country. Our mild winter weather, especially this year, may leave us dealing more with dusty homes than rain or snow-related messes. Prescott Maid to Order would like to offer these helpful hints to keep your home safe and clean during the winter months.

Fireplaces and Heating Systems:

  • Be sure to schedule annual inspections to insure fireplace vents are clean and don’t pose a fire risk
  • Make sure to dispose of fireplace ash in a safe place – only after it is completely cool
  • Changing your furnace filters regularly will help keep the dust in the house to a minimum and also will help keep the air in your home more healthy
  • Invest in carbon monoxide detection devices and make sure batteries are changed regularly, along with your smoke alarms
  • If you need a pilot lit, call your local gas company

Floors and Carpets:

  • Place rubberized mats at door entries to prevent slips and falls, as well preventing some of the dirt, leaves, etc. from messing up the house by catching them at the doorway
  • If salt gets tracked in, make sure to clean the flooring immediately, especially hardwood floors

February has long been celebrated as a month of romance. A candle light dinner with a glass of wine and a box of chocolates is very romantic, but does bring its own cleaning challenges:

  • For candle wax, you can use an orange oil essence cleaner, hot steam, or a plastic putty knife
  • Wine stains need a little seltzer water and some stain remover
  • Chocolate stains respond well to cold water but may require a stain remover as well
