Come in, but don't expect to find All dishes done, all floors ashine.
Observe the crumbs and toys galore.
The smudgy prints upon the door.
The little ones we shelter here
Don't thrive on a spotless atmosphere.
They're more inclined to disarray
And carefree even messy play.
Their needs are great, their patience small.
All day I'm at their beck and call.
It's Mommy come! Mommy see! Wiggly worms and red scraped knees.
Painted pictures, blocks piled high. My floors unshined, the days go by.
Some future day they'll flee this nest, And I at last will have a rest!
Now you tell me which matters more, A happy child or a polished floor?

You may not realize it, but your house is hazardous to your health.
Insect droppings, dust mites, spoiled food -- all can contribute to a plethora of health problems. In fact, germ guru Charles P. Gerba, Ph.D., a professor of microbiology at the University of Arizona in Tucson, says you're more likely to get sick going home than nearly anywhere else in your life (except maybe hospitals).
Common household items such as vinegar mixed with dishwasher detergent will clean your windows without the use of harsh chemicals.
What's scarier is that the cure for a dirty home can be worse than the problem as we attack germs with enough toxic chemicals to make the EPA shudder. Green Seal, a nonprofit environmental standards organization, estimates that cleaning products contribute approximately 8 percent of total nonvehicular emissions of volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. These can cause eye, nose, and lung irritation, as well as rashes, headaches, nausea, asthma, and, in some cases, cancer.

Master Cleaners from MOP-n-BUCKET Cleaning Service are offering tips on how to break down the cleaning of your home.
For many people, the tasks seem daunting, perhaps even overwhelming.
Here are some tips that will help make the job easier, from MOP-n-BUCKET Cleaning Service.
STEP 1. HAVE ALL SUPPLIES AND EQUIPMENT READY
CHECKLIST OF EQUIPMENT & SUPPLIES
• VACUUM WITH POWER HEAD AND ATTACHMENTS
• VACUUM BAGS
• MICROFIBRE MOP
• DUST PAN
• TOILET BRUSH
• STEP STOOL
• HANDLED DUSTER
• COTTON CLEANING RAGS
• MICROFIBRE CLOTHS
• GENERAL PURPOSE CLEANER
• GLASS CLEANER
• TILE AND GROUT CLEANER
• PAPER TOWEL
• S.O.S. OR SCRUBBIE PADS
• WOOD CARE PRODUCTS (YOUR CHOICE)
• OVEN CLEANER
• GARBAGE BAGS
• WHITE VINEGAR
• CHLORINE BLEACH (JAVEX)
• SEVERAL PACKING BOXES
• CLOTHES HAMPERS
• LARGE “YARD” TRASH BAGS
STEP 2. TURN OFF FURNACE
Major cleaning will stir up dust. You do not want the furnace moving it around the house. This is a good time to replace / clean your furnace filters.
STEP 3. DO ONE ROOM / AREA AT A TIME
Start up high and work your way down through the house. Dust and dirt falls. Don’t start cleaning until you do step 4. (top to bottom, left-right, which ever direction you choose as long as you end up where you started)
STEP 4. PICK UP, SORT OUT, THROW AWAY
Once you have decided on the first room to clean, follow this step carefully.
You cannot clean around clutter and extra “stuff”.
Begin by removing everything from the room except large furniture.
As each item comes out, decide its fate:
Throw away items should be bagged or boxed for garbage, recycling or charity and placed to go out.
Items that are for keeping can be placed into laundry hampers.
You will clean these items after the room is cleaned – as you place them back in.
STEP 5. FOLLOW A SYSTEM TO CLEAN THE ROOM
With all the stuff out, you are ready to clean the room.
Start up high. (top to bottom)
Move around the room in one direction. (left to right, and end where you started)
Use the broom to get at cobwebs.
Always clean floors last. Starting from the furthest back - and end up at your exit door.
These tips are provided as a public service by MOP-n-BUCKET Cleaning Service.

An occasional cleaning service ensures your house will be given the care that you might not have the time or inclination to provide. And having a consistently clean house helps prevent insect infestations, clears clutter (a potential fire hazard), and helps to provide a healthy environment.
