New London Day 2015 Best of Readers Choice Awards

The New London Day has announced the winners in the 2015 Best of Readers Choice Awards.  Annie's All Clean has placed second.  I'm thrilled to have received such support and prestigious recognition from our customers and the community.  Thank you all.  

Vacuum Cleaners

Lets face it people.  A vacuum is an expensive investment as far as cleaning equipment goes.  We all have our favorites and  I've owned many different brands.  I struggled with lugging heavy equipment up and down stairs. I've dealt with bag leaks and explosions. I've lived through not having a replacement bag and clogs that can not be cleared without taking the whole vacuum apart. To be honest I never liked any vacuum until I bought a Shark. 
 

Windows

Cleaning windows can be a lot of work or relatively easy. It depends on your cleaning formula and method.
 
Assemble a bucket & cloths,  I like to use white wash cloths for washing & white absorbent hand towels for drying.
 
 I use a simple solution of 1/2 gallon of hot tap water 3 teaspoons of distilled vinegar & 1/4 teaspoon of dish soap.  (Brands don't matter to me in this case).
 
Wash then thoroughly dry the window 1 pane at a time. Start at the top wash then dry thoroughly.

Stainless Appliances

Are your stainless appliances always streaky or fingerprinted? 
 
 I always have the best results from Weiman products.  Remember you must start with a clean surface.  Use a little dish soap & water to clean stainless before applying polish.  The trick in a perfect result lies in drying the surface completely.  Apply the stainless steel polish to a soft cloth & cover the entire surface with a thin layer.  Use another dry soft cloth to polish completely dry.  Remember to always wipe with the grain (usually up & down). 

Cleaning efficency tips

As promised I will be posting general efficiency comments & tips from professional housekeepers. 
 
Do you look at your house and honestly don't know where to start? 
 
Maria's- A general rule of thumb is top to bottom.  What does that mean?  Start upstairs or at one end of the house & do all tasks systematically on each level.  Cleaning each room separately just adds up to more minutes of cleaning drudgery.  Dust every room then remove trash from the entire level etc.

Avoid VOC's

Not feeling so healthy these days? Maybe it’s the cleaning chemicals you are working with.
Avoid:
-Non-green cleaners as much as possible.
-Cleaners that contain VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) Use VOC free glass cleaners if possible. You are breathing in very high amounts of VOC’s when working with chemicals all the time.
-Scented cleaners. The scents in most cleaners are VOC’s.

4/8/2013 First to Review
What?  No reviews?  Time for one!  We were visiting Groton to welcome our submariner son home from a grueling 7 month deployment.  We decided it would be a nice surprise for him to have his house cleaned.  Thinking we didn't want to tackle 7 months worth of fur from 2 cats, dust, grime, and general crud, we looked to Yelp. Finding nothing we took a chance with Annie's All Clean and are glad we did. First of all, Barbara was SO accommodating with our uncertainty of a day and time. Then she and her assistant devoted 3 hours and worked wonders. Besides that, she gave us a discount I'm sure, because our son is Navy and she said this was for a good cause. (Sorry, Barbara, I probably shouldn't say that!). She even followed up to ask if he liked the results. (He did, very much)The next time we want to treat our son, we will call on her.  Excellent and professional

Rubber Flooring

Rubber flooring is made of natural rubber which is coloured by mineral pigments. Oil, solvents, strong soaps and alkalis may damage rubber tile. The rubber floor should be protected against indentation (chair legs) and against deterioration from sunlight. It may become discoloured and lose its elasticity. Abrasive cleaners should always be avoided because they may scratch the tile. Rubber tile has a non-porous, smooth surface and is resistant to stains, acids and mild alkalis. It provides a very durable surface.
