Removing Old Wax Coating from the Floor

There are several types of flooring that require waxing to keep them looking shiny and gleaming. These include linoleum, wood, or vinyl flooring. Over the years several layers of wax build up on the floor or the surface. Too many coats of wax make the floor look dull and discolored. So once in a few years, you need to strip down the wax to remove the old layers before putting down a new one. There are commercial strippers available in the market that are expensive and chemical based. But here is a very simple and inexpensive way to remove the wax. Mix one cup of white vinegar and one cup cream of tartar in 5 liters of warm water. Soak a cloth in the solution and apply it to the surface. Leave for a few minutes and then use a hard scrubbing brush or a scouring pad to remove the wax. Use a circular motion to loosen the layers. Dip the brush in the solution for stubborn areas or as needed. Once all the wax is off, mop the solution off with clean water.

Grease Stain From Tiles

Tiled surfaces are built to last. But if they are not cleaned properly, they can begin to look dull and dirty. This is because of grease and grime which is hard to clean off. This is especially true if you have an old set in grease stain on your tile surface. But worry no more. Use washing soda to remove the stain and renew your tiles. You will need to wear gloves and eyewear as washing soda can be toxic. Make sure that the area is well ventilated before you begin. Open the doors and windows and turn on ventilation fan before you start. Add half a cup of washing soda to 5 liters of warm water. Mix well. Use a clean mop to apply the solution to the surface. Leave for a few minutes and then use a scrub brush to lift off the grease stains. Use a toothbrush to clean the grout to lift off grease marks. Once all the grease has come off. Wash down the floor with plain warm water. You will have sparkling clean surface again.

Keeping Laminated Floors Stain Free

As more homes turn to cheaper options instead of real wood, laminates are the first choice. But since they are not exactly wood but a composite of wood and plastic, removing stains from these floors is difficult without spoiling the finish. The best way to deal with it is to use commercial products recommended by the manufacturer. If there is none available then use vinegar to clean up organic stains. Use a mixture of one cup vinegar to 5 liters of water. For grease marks use mild soapy water to clean up. If the floor looks dull and dirty mop it with warm soapy water to refresh it.

Is your Home a Safe Haven?

In recent years, people have become more conscious of ecology. After decades of not paying attention to our environment, it has suddenly become the focus of attention as more and more studies have confirmed the health hazards associated with the rampant use of chemical at home and everywhere else. So, what you think of as a safe haven your clean refuge may be clean but might also be poisoning you slowly.

All modern day homes have a problem with indoor air quality. As it is, the air around us is polluted and when it is trapped indoors without proper ventilation and subjected to various chemical fumes, it can be poisonous.

Causes and Effect of Poor Indoor Air Quality

The modern day construction material contains a lot of chemicals that are slowly released as fumes. These fumes are a big contributor to the indoor air quality. From our carpets to our wall paints, they are all treated with chemicals some of which could be quite toxic. The effect of poor indoor air quality could be quite disastrous, especially for people who suffer from allergies and respiratory problems. Young children and older people are most affected by it. The very cleaning products your Doha and Dubai maids are carrying around to clean your house may be contributing to making it toxic. There are greener cleaning options available. Look for a green cleaning agency on

Ensuring a Better Air Quality

You can improve the air quality within your home. There some really good devices available that can clean the air effectively. Some of these air purifiers are so good that can even help to remove bacteria and virus from the air, but these, of course, cost a lot of money.  Of course, there are other smaller units for the home which you can use to clean the air within the house. But, prevention is better than cure. So, we recommend that you take a look at the chemicals within your home and eliminate them from your cleaning routine.

Cleaning With Green Products

We rarely ever look at the labels of the cleaning products we buy. But if you do you will find that they are laden with chemicals. No doubt some of these products are good, but there are other better alternatives available. More and more people are using green or eco-friendly cleaning products nowadays. This is because these cleaning agents are non-toxic and do not contain chemicals that may cause allergies.

Before the commercial cleaning agents came to completely dominate the cleaning product industry, people used simple, everyday products to clean their homes. These substances are cheap and reliable, and more importantly, do not harm the indoor air quality.

Using substances like vinegar, lemon, bleach, hydrogen peroxide, organic soap, baking soda, salt and other such common things, you can keep your house sparkling clean, hygienic and most importantly chemical free.
