Over the years of renovating homes, I have come across a lot of iffy looking tile floors. Extremely dirty tile grout is generally the cause for making tiles appear past their life. But due to my obsession with having clean floors, I eventually found the solution to revive tile floors and make grout and tile look like new again.
Most of us think of spring and fall as the cleaning and home maintenance seasons. We spend a lot of time organizing and airing out during the spring and closing down and tightening up during the fall. However, there are several up-keeping jobs that I feel fall under the summer home maintenance must-dos.
Being that I have hardwood flooring throughout my entire house, I tend to stock up on rugs. I have rugs of all types and colors. I change them out the way most people change their throw pillows. But, having so many rugs can be costly when it comes time to get them cleaned. Luckily, I have a very effective DIY professional rug cleaning method!
I think that we can all agree that it doesn’t matter how many improvements or renovations you do, if the house is not clean, it just feels old and well, blah. But, keeping a clean house requires diligence on my best days. Keeping a clean house when you have dogs can seem like an exercise in futility. I know, I have been there. I am STILL there. But, over the years I have found some tried and true methods to make my life easier.
