3 Cleaning Habits To Save Your Home Maintenance

January 21st, 2017

Spring is almost over and long summer is awaiting for us. In fact, most parts of the world have been covered with heat waves, dust and monsoon rains by now. This calls for a stiff cleaning job, to get ready for the challenges ahead this season. You may not have considered cleaning as a cost saving activity, but it can be.

For example, if you clean all the home appliances before and after use, properly, you can actually save a lot of energy. It also helps prolong the life of your appliance. Plus, your appliances will run efficiently for a longer period of time. So, if you want to save on your energy bills and extend the life of your appliances, hire a maid to clean them regularly. Alternatively, invest the time and effort to do it yourself.

While you can always count on Toronto cleaning services, such as Focus Cleaning Professionals, for complete home cleaning, you may be looking to save some money by taking the job in your own hands. Although, professionals can do it in the best possible manner, you can still try your luck by preparing a summer cleaning checklist for your home. Here’s how it should be done.

Following are the main check points to ensure you saved a few dollars at the end of the month, just by cleaning them properly.

Start With Your Kitchen Stove/Oven

Do you know that the reflecting dishes that you see beneath the elements in your electric stove, are actually meant to reflect the heat towards the pan? In this way, they save extra energy. Clean dishes mean less energy and proper cooking. Oven is not different.

When you don’t clean your oven or stove regularly, stubborn food particles make way to the corners, sides, bottom and top of the stove/oven, making it difficult for the heat to distribute evenly throughout the interior. As a result, the energy is lost and those food particles, after being removed, go on to develop hot and cold spots on reflecting dishes as well as on the heating elements. This also affects the quality of food.

Use damp cloth to clean the entire stove after cooking your meal. Clean the stove/oven properly once in every two months. If it seems difficult to clean the stove, you can hire professional cleaning service Toronto to do the job.


Refrigerator is another important appliance that requires periodic cleaning after two to three months, or it will consume more electricity than usual.

  • Vacuum the vent and get the vacuum under the fridge to remove accumulated dust.
  • If the condenser coils are on the back of your model, pull the refrigerator out and give it a thorough vacuuming and dusting.

Kitchen Sink and Drainage Pipe

Kitchen sink doesn’t consume energy but it can save your medical expenses. Sink is a breeding ground for bacteria and germs. According to many researches, a kitchen sink has equal or larger amount of bacteria than your toilet. They look clean, but their moist and warm environment is ideal for bacterial growth. So, don’t forget to clean your sinks. Also, sanitize and scour your drains with a cup of baking soda followed by a cup of vinegar.
