Cleaning an entire home requires huge amount of time and effort and if you are working for a living then you will not take time off to work just to clean an entire house. Cleaning a house inside and out cannot be done in just one day because it requires a lot of hard work and details. This is true especially during the end of tenancy. Many tenants who rent a house choose to hire end of lease cleaning service to make it easier for them to leave the rented property without any trouble with their landlord. As you rent a property to live at, you will be required to give huge amount of money for deposit. This deposit will be used in case you do not return the property in good condition. The money will be used for cleaning, repairs and restoration of the properly in good condition.

If you will return the property to its owner in a good condition, then you will get your deposit back. Deposit is huge money that you can use for paying the company that will clean the house and you will still have extra money that you can use to buy anything that you want. A retail cleaning company can help a lot of people in different ways. Cleaning is a not a simple job to do because you need to have the right tools, equipment and products to do the cleaning right. All of these things can be very expensive than hiring someone professional to do the dirty job for you. It is worthy for a tenant to consider a professional cleaning company if you need spotless cleaning especially when it comes to end of tenancy.

One of the main reasons why many people choose to hire domestic cleaning services is because they need to move out of their rented property. If you are a tenant, then you cannot just move out of the property without restoring it in its original condition. This is one thing that you need to know in case this is your first time to live in a rented property. However, it will be explained to you by the owner of the property right before you sign any contract. It pays to read and understand the agreement or contact right before you sign because this is where you can find clauses about cleaning the property at the end of tenancy if you want to get your money back. Professional end of lease cleaning service is the simple answer to your problem.

If you are living in a rented property for six months to a year, the landlord expects some wear and tear, but no matter how long you live in a rented property it is important to make it look sparkling and clean right before you leave. So a professional a cleaning company can make it look the same way as you first step into the property. You can be rest assured that once you hire a professional retail cleaning company to clean the entire property.

This will give you a huge chance of getting your deposit back on your hands. The costs of end of tenancy cleaning companies are not always unreachable. Most companies set their prices in regard to the amount of work which they are expected to accomplish by the end of the cleaning process. Of course it would be an added expenditure; however, the end result is just marvelous. If you are out to cut down on extra costs, then it would be better if you could hire some cleaning machines from the end of tenancy cleaning companies to assist you in your cleaning. They may be given to you at a relatively lower cost as compared to hiring the company to come and take care of all the end of tenancy cleaning.

All natural air fresheners

I admit, I’m a sucker for smelly products. Every time I pass the laundry aisle I stop and sniff. One smell I cannot stand is dog; we have a medium/large dog, and she loves the outdoors… swimming, running, chasing shadows, you name it! The result of course is a slightly stinky home once in awhile.
I used to buy a lot of commercial odour-removing potions/sprays/powders, but when I got thinking about what chemicals they’re using to mask the odours I got a bit leery of using them.

I did a bit of searching, and I’ve come across some great all natural ways of deodorizing your home. Give them a try, and let me know which are your favourites!

-For odours in your carpet, sprinkle with baking soda. Let sit for several minutes [even up to half an hour or so], then vaccuum thoroughly. *this is a favourite of mine*
-For odours in the air: Dissolve a tsp or so of baking soda in 2 cups hot water, add a dash of lemon juice, pour into spray bottle, shake, and spray to your heart’s content!
– Simmer cloves, cinnamon sticks, allspice or your favourite herb in a pot of water for 1-2 hours.
– Light a match or burn a candle after a particularily stinky event [think the bathroom]; the flame ‘eats up’ the gases! *another favourite of mine*
– Add a couple of drops of your favourite essential oil to the inside of the toilet paper roll: with each turn the scent will be dispersed.

Trash or Treasure? Mesh produce bags

Most of the time I try to buy my produce with no bags and save on the plastic where I can, but sometimes the price on already packaged fruit is simply too good to ignore. So, what do you do with those mesh bags apples,  oranges, and sometime potatoes come in? Some would trash them, others would send them off to the recyclers… how ’bout you re-use them first, save a bit of money doing so, and then send them off to their next life!

I made a wonderful little kitchen scrubby using two mesh bags that some apples came in. You’ll save money by not buying a pre-made scrubber, and I think this is one of the best scrubbys I’ve used anyways; the mesh is just right for grabbing stuck on foods, yet it’s soft enough to use on even the most delicate dishes. You can use this for cleaning plastics [bottles, tupperware, etc] and not have to worry about scratching it.

1. Start but cutting the top and bottom off the bags
2. Stretch the bags out and lay them flat.
3. Fold the right side to meet the middle of the bag [do both bags].
4. Fold the left side to meet the middle of the bag- it will touch the edge of the side you folded previously [do both bags]
5. Fold the bag completely in half lengthwise; the edges previously folded in will now be enclosed.
6. Tie the two folded bags loosely at the top.
7. Do another loose tie at the top. Note the hole between the two ties.
8. Do one more loose tie in the midsection- if you are using long bags, make two ties.
9. Grab the loose ends and pull towards the hole at the top [the one you noted in step #7].
10. Push the loose ends through the hole.
11. I pulled the ends through her a bit more, to emphasize my instructions; you do not need to pull them through this high.
12. Tighten the tie around the top, securing the loose ends inside.
13. Tuck the ends of the tie [from the above step] into the folds of the scrubby… you’re done!
14. This scrubby really is great; it’s a tough cleaner, but soft enough to use on delicate dishes.
15. The loops are a bonus; use one to hang the scrubby on the faucet to dry!
