Cleaning with CLR, we use it and so should you!


One of our favorite products, no payment being received from them, for our Las Vegas Maid Services, is CLR. You can buy this product at any of your favorite stores including Home Depot and Lowes. This product is extremely versatile, but use hand and eye protection when using. The many surfaces this product clean include;
Tubs
• Toilet bowls
• Sinks
• Glass
• Chrome
• Fiberglass • Stainless steel
• Coffee makers
• Humidifiers
• Dishwashers
• Washing machines
• Shower heads
Basically it is great at dissolving calcium and rust. In Las Vegas hard water is something we live with and deal with when cleaning.  One of the things you may not think of with CLR is cleaning the driveway, but with pressure washing it works great. I use a slightly different approach and use powder laundry detergent to soak up oil and fluids on my driveway, and then CLR and pressure washing later on to keep it clean.   Do not use it directly with oil, use an oil absorber, such as CLR Grease Magnet first.

When shopping for cleaning chemicals, our Las Vegas Maid Services, tries to be green, but CLR is a good addition for those tough cleaning  jobs.


Marble/Travertine Bathroom Cleaning


Our Las Vegas Maid Service always finds that cleaning the Marble or Travertine Tile in the shower/bath area can be the most challenging chore of the day.
1. Never, Never use caustic chemicals such as Bleach or Vinegar on the tile. This can cause blemishes and take off the finish.
2. Hard water stains are hard to get off.
3. Use only chemicals that are meant for these soft, porous stones.
4. We use a stone cleaner and a polisher meant for Marble for these hard to clean areas.
5. It takes some elbow grease, but do not use hard scrubbers such as steel wool or scouring pads as these will score the soft stone finish.


Marble and Travertine Flooring and the cleaning of


When I am at the Meridian Resort Condominiums, the first question asked usually is; How do I get the marble floor clean? We have been mopping it daily and it still is dirty…..
Marble and Travertine are a soft stone which absorbs liquid if not sealed properly.  Our Las Vegas Maid Service reccomends:
1. Do not wet mop your stone flooring
2. Instead use a spray on stone finishing such as **Stone Medic** which is made for soft stone flooring.
3. Use a damp dry mop and rag to remove spills and spots in heavy traffic areas.
4. Using the dry mopping frequently will remove the dust and grime without setting it into the stone flooring.
