Fall Cleaning Specials –

 

I hope your Labor Day weekend is off to a fabulous start….I still can’t get over the fact that summer is pretty much over.  Before the weekend is in full swing, I want to give you an update on a few things here .

We like this home tip because we know that so many people in our area suffer from seasonal allergies- both indoors and outdoors.
Perform a thorough clean in the fall. This way, the dust, pollen, and dirt brought in during the summer months can be eliminated before the house is closed up for the winter.

Remember, pollen and dust aren’t the only causes of seasonal allergies. If the humidity or moisture in your home is too high,  it becomes a perfect breeding ground for dust mites.  If your crawlspace or basement has standing water or if you think it has excess humidity, contact BBC for a free visual inspection.   It might be the answer to your allergy problems!

Spraying a surface and immediately wiping it away will only do half a job. The majority of antibacterial cleaners are designed to be left on surfaces for 30-60 seconds before wiping them off.

And if you’ve run out of your antibacterial spray – lemons are a great disinfectant.

Another handy fruit to have around for cleaning emergencies is the banana – they can clean silver items and give leather shoes a good polish.
