My husband and I were at Rainbow Hospital for our grandson’s surgery on Wednesday. A custodial person came in to clean. The last thing she did was to clean the floor with a flat mop! And the floor was not swept.

The flat mop was used to both clean and sweep the floor. By the time she got to the door way, the debris got swept with a broom and picked up with a dustpan.

The flat mop IS THE BETTER WAY to clean your floor. Pre-moistened cloths can leave the surface feeling tacky.

The way it was done

Carpet Cleaning

This is the time of year when people clean their carpets. Just remember that most of the dirt is where you first enter the room. Ditto for vacuuming. It doesn’t make sense to start at the farthest end of the room.

In order to keep the carpet clean longer, always remember to take off your shoes as soon as stepping in from outside. No matter what season, keep the dirt from coming into the house or business.
