Impress Your Guests With Our Green Cleaning Services in Chicago


    ServiceMaster Cleaning by Simons provides eco-friendly cleaning services for Chicago homes.

    Being the host or hostess can pile on pressure to accommodate and impress your guests, and there can be a seemingly endless list of things to do before they arrive. Whether you’re hosting a simple children’s birthday party or having your in-laws over for the first time this Thanksgiving, we can help you get the house ready with our green cleaning services at ServiceMaster Cleaning by Simons in Chicago.

    We have a supply of professional green cleaning supplies and equipment to fit your  home’s needs, but it’s understandable if you don’t have your own closet full of these things. Instead, you can make your home cleaning practices more environmentally-friendly with these DIY home green cleaning tricks.

    Grease: Clean stubborn grease off your stovetops or cabinets using vinegar and baking soda. Spray the vinegar on the greasy surface and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Then, use baking soda on a sponge to rub off the vinegar and grease.

    Bathrooms: Gunk has a way of building up in your bathtub and shower. For a fresh smelling bathroom, you can use a grapefruit and salt to rub down the grime. The citrus breaks down the gunk, while the salt acts as an abrasive to release the dirt particles, making for a perfect green cleaning solution.

    Wood: You can make your own wood polish using these three green ingredients that are probably already in your kitchen! A lemon, olive oil, and water are a simple combination but work wonders on your wood furniture. Simply strain the lemon juice into a tablespoon each of olive oil and water, mix the solution well, and use a microfiber cloth to polish.

    Rust: There are a number of green cleaning methods to remove rust, but the easiest is a combination of white vinegar and aluminum foil. Simply dip the foil into the vinegar and scrub the rust away. Be sure to rinse and dry your scrubbed item to keep the rust from reappearing.

    While these methods work for every day cleaning, you should call in a professional when it comes to floor cleaning, upholstery cleaning, and carpet cleaning in Chicago. ServiceMaster Cleaning by Simons provides a deep clean for your home with our cleaning products and techniques, no matter the service! Contact us today to set up a pre- or post-holiday carpet cleaning, or a post-party upholstery cleaning. Leave the cleaning to us!
