My friends, I’ve heard your cries for a car cleaning video, and finally, here it is! As with any cleaning task, it’s important to have a strategy, which is why I cleaned the cars in three waves (duh!). Wave one was tidy and organize – this basically means getting all of the junk out of the car – garbage, general schmutz.. old cups, and even stuff you actually use, like cup holders (did you know, you can place those on the top rack of the dishwasher if they are removable?!), owner’s manuals, umbrellas, phone chargers, etc. Make sure to fish under the seats and catch all of those bonus articles. You may just find that rotting apple core or shrunken french fry that’s been stinking up your car. Pop the garbage and the ‘keep’ items off to the side. Use this opportunity to remove mats as well, and if they are carpeted and smelly, sprinkle them with baking soda and let them sit out while you complete the cleaning.
Wave two starts at the top and works down to the bottom, just like we do in other spaces. I sprayed glass surfaces with glass cleaner and used a flat weave microfiber cloth to buff out streaks and hazy/greasy spots. Any plastic surfaces I cleaned with all-purpose cleaner and a general purpose microfiber cloth. I brushed dust out of vents with old paintbrushes, and got hard-to-reach debris out with an old cleaning toothbrush. This is an invaluable tool for car cleaning! Brush everything onto the floor, you’ll vacuum that up later. I have leather seats, so I cleaned them with Leather CPR (link below), and a soft sponge. If you have upholstery, spot clean any stains, and if the seats really need help consider steam cleaning them. If they smell, sprinkle them with baking soda and vacuum up in wave three. My pattern of work was sunroof, windshield, side door, dashboard and center console, seat, other side door and seat, move to the back seat and clean that out, and finish up with the trunk. Repeat this pattern for vacuuming in wave three.
Wave three consists of vacuuming, of course! I have my vacuum linked below in case you’re interested. I vacuumed using the various attachments (whatever fitted, actually), and did my best. I have always found cars to be somewhat challenging to vacuum, so I didn’t get all perfectionist about it. Make sure you vacuum the trunk as well, and any baking soda on upholstery or floor mats. When replacing floor mats, give them a good shake before replacing so as to not bring debris into the car.
And there you go, the long awaited car cleaning video. Now that it’s done, go an clean your car and share your before and after shots with me on Snap or Instagram – or hey, even Facebook!

Duct Cleaning For Healthier Fresher Air In Home
Most home owners are well aware that the heating and cooling system should be inspected annually. This is best done before the fall or winter rush. But making sure the furnace is up to snuff is not all one should do. Getting your home’s air ducts cleaned is also a crucial step in ensuring that your family is living in a healthy, fresh air indoor environment.Carpet Cleaning Tips: How to Keep Your Carpet Clean and Healthy

So, how can you keep your carpet clean and healthy? Here are a few carpet cleaning tips to help you along.What Are the Best Carpet Cleaning Methods?
You do a lot to keep a neat and tidy house. You probably spend hours cleaning up after children and pets, which means you’re constantly treating spills and vacuuming.

When that time rolls around, it’s time to get your carpet professionally cleaned.Allergy Proofing Your Home
In the warmer seasons, tiny pollen particles are released from trees, weeds, and grasses, causing seasonal allergies, commonly referred to as hay fever. While Pollen is one of the leading causes of seasonal allergies, irritants inside the home may be to blame as well? Individuals with pollen allergies can develop sensitivities to other allergens such as dust mites, pet dander, and mold spores. The first step in treating allergies is to avoid what you are allergic to. The following are effective ways of reducing exposure to allergens inside your home.Carpet Cleaning To Remove Coffee Spills and Stains
The primary purpose of carpets is to improve the ambiance and the aesthetics of the room. However, the problem with carpets is that they are perpetually exposed to things that may damage them. Take coffee for instance. Most people wake up in the morning and have their coffee in the living room or the dining room where the carpet may be installed. If, by some chance, you drop some coffee on your carpet then it can produce long-lasting stains! This is where carpet cleaning to remove coffee spills and stains becomes relevant.
