5 Most Challenging Areas To Clean

There are many reasons people choose to hire a house cleaning service. Whenever we do an assessment for new clients, we always try to understand what areas are the most challenging and time-consuming. Over the many years of listening to our customers, we’ve identified the top five most difficult areas that most people dread cleaning. In this article, we’ll talk about some of the challenges that come with each area, and why hiring a cleaning company can help.

Area one: Shower and bathtub cleaning

While most of our clients didn’t mind cleaning areas like the sink and even the toilet. Scrubbing soap scum off the shower tile was a dreaded task that they put off. “The thing I hate most is having to get on my hands and knees,” one of our clients told us. “After about 30 minutes of scrubbing, every bone in my body aches!”.

Most cleaning companies such as White Lotus Cleaners, will do all of the bending and scrubbing while also using the best line of cleaning products to remove soap scum and disinfect showers and tubs.

Area two: Window blinds

Window blinds are another task most of our clients have said they can’t stand. The smaller the blinds are, the harder it is to wipe dust off each blade. Avoiding bending or permanently damaging blinds is also difficult, and can cost hours of people’s time cleaning.

Professional house cleaners will use special blind tools that are able to clean dust from all types of blinds, both quickly and effectively without damaging them.

Area three: Refrigerator cleaning

A real pain is for people to remove all their food items from their refrigerator in order to wipe down the walls, shelves and drawers. The average time it takes most people to clean their fridge (including their freezer) was an hour to an hour and a half, depending on how long it had been since their last fridge cleaning.

When a professional cleaner maid cleans a fridge, they carefully remove food items one shelf at a time, and use special cleaning products to quickly remove food spills and crumbs so they can replace the food to its shelf. They can also clean the exterior of the fridge and offer polishing for stainless steel.

Area four: Folding and putting away laundry

It’s interesting how many people dislike having to fold and put away their clothing and linens. This is especially true for families with lots of people living at home. “I don’t mind washing and drying them”, explained one long time client, “but it’s the folding, hanging up and putting away part that kills me!”.
Probably the most dreaded clothing item to fold are the fitted sheets. Some clients simply give up folding these and wind them up into a tight ball.

Most teams will specialize in washing, drying, folding and putting away clothes and linens. For every large load of laundry taken care of, a customer can usually save about one hour of time.

Area five: Baseboard cleaning

Last but not least, baseboards were one of the top dreaded tasks our clients hated cleaning. Like shower cleaning, base boards require a lot of kneeling and bending over for long periods of time. It’s even more difficult to clean baseboards that are covered by couches, beds or other large furniture.

A professional house cleaner should be able to handle all of the physical work that goes into cleaning baseboards while using special rags and cleaning solutions that can quickly remove scuffs and dust. They can usually get them cleaned in half the time it would normally take the clients to clean them.
