Use Good Tools

A good tool can make your life so much easier. Knowing how to best use that tool is priceless. Frequently, I go into homes and my clients are trying to use itty bitty tools in great big houses. If you have a big home get commercial sized and quality tools. You are going to be amazed how much time will be saved from a 18 inch commercial tool vs a 6-12 inch flimsy tool. This doesn't even mention how much longer these tools will last and easier your job will be. Even if you hire a house cleaner get good tools. It will save them time and you money!
Years ago when we had our carpet and upholstery cleaning company we would pre-vacuum
each room before our cleaning. I used a 17 inch commercial vacuum. Every once in a while, I would have to use the standard residential sized vacuum. The number of passes and time needed almost seemed to double. It felt like trying to clean a floor with a tooth brush. While we are on the subjects of tooth brushes- have you ever tried to clean your grout with a tooth brush? I rest my case!
Happy and healthy cleaning- denise
