Disinfecting your home during flu season

During this time of year we are inside a lot, the windows are closed, we are carrying germs around our home and office more, air is’t flowing as well and it can get a bit stuffy. This is a good time of year to get your home disinfected with our natural, non-toxic cleaners that kill bacteria, viruses, mildew and mold. We can include spraying and wiping door knobs, banisters, remote controls and things that are touched frequently. Also a good wiping down of all surfaces and thorough vacuuming can help with the air quality. There is nothing like coming home and smelling the essential oils we use in the air and seeing and feeling the difference after a good cleaning! Get in touch with us to schedule a disinfecting clean.

Does using non-toxic cleaning solutions really make a difference?

When you go to the store, be it Target or your local grocery store, you will likely see row after row of single-use bottles and cleaning products inside that are not exactly healthy to breathe in. Why are these products sold and used so often? Because it makes it easy on the consumer when cleaning their home (instead of non-toxic which takes a little more elbow grease) to spray something on, let it do the work and just wipe away.

If you ask anyone who has switched over from using toxic materials to using materials like vinegar, baking soda, essential oils, homemade all-purpose solutions, etc. they will tell you they felt a lot better during and after cleaning. These toxic cleaning solutions are not only harmful to your body but they go down the drain and into the soil. Your pets also inhale them at no fault […]

Allergies!!! A fresh cleaning could help….

Allergies this Spring have been brutal for many. A fresh cleaning could help control the allergens in your home. We can’t control the pollen count outside but a regular cleaning of the built up dust, pet dander, mold (!!) and pollen that has made it’s way in could really help. Our vacuums have HEPA filters and powerful suction.

Many homes contain allergens on their floors, furniture and other surfaces and dust is the #1 trigger for allergy symptoms and asthma. Regular vacuuming helps keep dust mites at bay! But it must be with a HEPA vacuum so that small particles are trapped in the vacuum and not the air you breath. Here are some other tips:

1. Wash your linens once a week. 2. Use chemical free cleaning products only. 3. Bathe your pet once a week and keep your cat boxes clean. 4. Mold spores float […]

Asheville Cleaning Company Logo

We here at Asheville Cleaning Company would like to share some tricks of the trade that we’ve learned over the years.

Here’s a tip:

Don’t throw those old toothbrushes away!  Use them to clean hard to reach spots like around sinks, in grout, even on mucky baseboards and window ledges.

Cleaning After Kids and Dogs in Asheville

Asheville Cleaning Kids & Dogs

I will admit, my four year old brings some pretty gross stuff, colors on the walls and leaves piles of sand on the floor from his shoes when he’s been in the sand box. However, from cleaning houses, we have learned that these furry creatures we love are one of the main reasons our clients call us. It’s the hair! And maybe the mud tracks on the floor and the general dog smell… but mainly the hair. How we combat the dog hair: 1. We use Miele vacuums (well-made tough machines!) with such strong suction and beater-bar technology that it lifts your pet’s hair right off any surfaces, out of crevices and from under low pieces of furniture. 2. We use our amazing Miele upholstery attachment so you don’t get dog hair all over your clothes each time you sit down on the sofa. 3. […]

Asheville HGTV Urban Oasis Home Cleaning!

Asheville HGTV Urban Oasis Home

Ever So Carefully!

We were lucky enough to be asked to clean this Asheville HGTV Urban Oasis home after construction was finished and then in between shooting. We completed the post construction cleaning and returned for our first pre-shoot cleaning after the decorators came in and worked their magic. What an amazing place! What made this job so unique, aside from the jaw-dropping decor, was not being able to move a single item out of place. The house was what they called a “hot set”, which means it’s ready for shooting. So as we cleaned, scrubbed and removed dust, we were ever-so-careful not to move anything, even an inch.

We were successful! They’ve called us back numerous times and are excited to watch the home featured on HGTV on August 10th.
