It’s that time of year again. Flowers are blooming and birds are chirping, which can only mean one thing: time for Spring Cleaning!
Cleaning your house doesn’t seem like an ideal way to celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of spring, but we all know it has to be done.
The average home takes between 4-5 hours to clean from top to bottom. Here are a few tips and tricks to make it feel like less of a chore and to shorten your cleaning time .
Have a Plan. If you have a plan before you start cleaning, you will know where to start and where to finish. This will allow you to have better focus, preventing you from getting distracted and leading to a quicker job
Kitchen and Bathrooms. Typically these 2 rooms are the dirtiest in a home and tend to take the most time. If you start with these 2 rooms, then it will be smooth sailing for the rest of the house.
Dilute Cleaning products. Replace one-quarter of the bottle with water to thin out the product. This makes it less sticky and less likely to streak
Don’t apply products directly to furniture or floors. Instead, spray or dampen your cloth before dusting or washing. The saying “a little goes a long way” holds true for cleaning products, too.
Pet Hair. Put on a wet rubber dish washing glove and rub your hand over the “hairy” surface, the hair will stick to the glove. Then you can run it under the tap for easy clean up.
Hard Water stains around sinks and faucets. Soak some paper towels in vinegar and placed them on the areas with hard water. Fill a spray bottle filled with vinegar and spray the towels every time you walk past. After about 20 minutes, take the towels off and scrub the hard water with an old toothbrush. For areas with thick hard water, put the towels back on, spray with more vinegar and wait another hour, keeping the towels soaked in the vinegar. You shouldn’t have to scrub really hard, the hard water will come off easily after the vinegar soaking.
Cleaning your Windows. Forget the old tales of using vinegar or newspaper, you just need dish soap and clean water! But there is a catch….to have clean streak free windows is all in the squeegee technique. It will take some practise but you will get the hang of it. Some tips: Don`t lift your squeegee and have a chamois handy to wipe the glass around the frame. If this doesn`t sound very fun to you, I would suggest giving us a call to book our trained crew to come out and clean the windows for you! To get a free estimate Click Here
We can also take care of your pressure washing projects!
Warning: Do not use vinegar on marble countertops or other stoneware, as it can cause the stone to pit and corrode.
The crew arrived on time, evaluated the gutter blockage situation and fixed it promptly. The crew was courteous and efficient. They removed all debris afterwards. Thanks for a job well done. No more overflowing gutters!

Ryan did a great job of power washing our decks and trellises. They were looking very stained with years of accumulated dirt and green residue from the surrounding trees. We really didn't expect the pressure treated wood to come up looking like new. It didn't, but the result was as close as we could possibly hope for!Ryan certainly knows his job. It was like watching an artist at work. He almost seemed to be painting on a new finish rather than cleaning off the old stains.We had heard that you can do a lot of damage to the old wood if it is not done carefully, and we are very happy to have (almost) new looking decks stairs and rails.Thank you Huber for your professional, prompt and efficient service! Windows and siding next :)

Cordial, efficient employees left every window and sunroom windows and glass roof spotless.Also shared their knowledge on other services, inside windows and screens service was not available.Will have the back in the fall as this will become a biannual service for our home.Kids will be glad they don’t have to worry about me being on the ladders and roof.

Was worried about getting windows cleaned at our (quite tall) townhome, but Huber cleaning has done a great job the two times we've used them! Showed up on time (or a bit early), and any issues with streaks or spots missed they'll come back and fix. Highly recommend.
