Oven cleaning - the necessary evil

But if you want to enjoy your cooking experience and better food, do it on a regular basis to keep things under control. Grease build-up and bottom of the oven crumbs can lead to the creation of carbon monoxide.

Will investing in a cleaning company help with your company's growth?


Will investing in a cleaning company help with your company's growth?


All business owners are looking to minimize cost and maximize revenue. What we have found, after working with many local Katy companies, we have seen many common misperceptions when it comes to commercial cleaning services:

1) The perception that cleaning is just vacuuming, washing floors, garbage removal and subsequently hire a company solely on price because they think these are low-skill tasks.

2) Making the mistake of giving consideration to what the work might entail as if they were doing it in-house so they miscalculate cleaning costs due to not being aware how involved the actual work might be.

3) Many companies just call a company and might hire without going through a formal process. If you are company, you have undoubtedly submitted your own proposals for services you would like to provide to another. This philosophy should also be applied when searching for the right commercial cleaner: be sure to get a handful of proposals to ensure you can adequately evaluate them and identify who is the most professional at the most competitive price.

If companies were to invest more time to think about these things, they would be much happier with the company they selected because doing your due diligence and understanding what work actual needs to be done will ensure you hire the company that best meets your requirements.

Tips to Clean Your Gas Fireplace


Tips to Clean Your Gas Fireplace


Winters are in full swing and chances are you’re reading this huddled next to your fireplace. Ah, the fireplace: aesthetic and incredibly warm. Take a good look at it though – is it clean? If you haven’t cleaned your fireplace for a long time, the answer will probably be a no.

Many homeowners will ignore the cleanliness of their fireplace either because it looks too complicated or because they simply forget. Don’t be a careless homeowner and realize that cleaning your gas fireplace is as important as the wood fireplace. While it’s true the gas burns more cleanly than the wood fireplace, it still needs cleaning.

Glass or not

Not all gas fireplaces have a glass window in front. If you have a gas fireplace with a glass window, you need to remove the glass first. Safely remove the glass using the instructions in the safety manual. Clean and wipe the glass thoroughly and make sure you don’t have pets or children around as you clean the glass.

You might notice soot stains or a black coating form on your glass. The key to tackling these stains is to clean them as soon as you can or else they might become permanent. Similarly, you might see a white haze condensed on your glass. This is natural but if you don’t wipe the glass regularly, the haze might be etched permanently into the glass.

Dusting and Cleaning the Ventilation System

Once you have cleaned the glass of the gas fireplace, the next step should be dusting and cleaning the cobwebs in the fireplace. It’s pretty common to find cobwebs form inside the fireplace especially if it does not have a glass window. Burning the cobwebs can produce a characteristic smell that might alarm you.

Dust the logs and the inside of the fireplace thoroughly. Use a vacuum cleaner if you need an even more extensive, deep cleaning. You should also make sure the chimney or vent of your fireplace is not clogged. Call a professional home cleaning service in Katy to help you out with cleaning the ventilation system since it would require some expertise.
