Cleaning Tip #4: Cleaning Kitchen
Work Surfaces

Blog, Cleaning Services, Uncategorized No Comments

Daily: Wipe down work surfaces before and after every use. You can use an antibacterial spray, but warm water and washing-up liquid is enough if you are thorough.

Ceramic tiles: Clean up the grouting with a solution of one part bleach to four parts water, using an old toothbrush to scrub between the tiles. Stains can be tackled with an all-purpose kitchen cleaner, but be careful of abrasive cleaners on glazed tiles.

Laminate: Stubborn stains can be cleaned with cream cleaners or a paste of bicarbonate of soda with a few drops of chlorine bleach.

Solid wood: Regular oiling is required to prevent the wood soaking up water – follow manufacturer’s recommendations carefully. Firm rubbing with a cloth and a washing-up liquid solution should clean up the wood, but take care not to allow spills of tomato sauce, curry etc to sit on the surface as they can be tough to remove.

Stainless steel: Fingermarks can be removed with a microfibre cloth or try a dab of baby oil on a clean cloth. Avoid any abrasive materials, which could scratch the surface.

Granite: Hardwearing and resistant to stains, washing-up liquid is all that’s required here. Avoid any abrasive materials, which could scratch the surface.

Always check manufacturer’s instructions first. Always try a test patch first. If you are unsure as to whether the item you are cleaning is suitable for our instructions, take manufacturer’s advice first. Alternatively, sit back, relax, pick up the phone, give us a call and leave it to us! 020 8505 3006
