First things first: set your head to quickly clean your home while it’s still early.

We’re not worrying about the nooks and crannies! We’re going for that immediate wow factor.

Step 2: Decluttering and Dusting (10 Minutes)

Decluttering and dusting is the next important step. If you don’t make it, at least your guests will find a tidy home.

Quickly go through the main areas and remove any clutter. Grab a trash bag and put away your kids’ toys, your dishes, and anything else that feels out of place.

Besides, dust anything you find with a microfiber cloth and a spritz of water and white vinegar. You can also add just one drop of mineral oil for extra shine, especially around your TV stand and coffee table.

Step 3: Clean Your Kitchen and Bathroom (20 minutes)

Your kitchen and especially your bathroom are a big priority if you want to clean your house for Thanksgiving.

Clean and disinfect your toilet bowl. Leave agents act on the surface and, in the meantime, wipe down your sink and countertops. If you have time, clean the mirror and empty the trash. Don’t forget to open up your windows!

Wipe down your kitchen as well. Because you have very little time, you might have to clean your stovetop and your countertops only. If you have more time, clean any spills in the oven as well.

Step 4: Vacuum and Sweep (15 minutes)

Start with the carpets and rugs! Although we usually leave floors for last, in this case, they are a big telltale sign that your home is not clean.

Use your broom and quickly sweep all rooms, and then switch to the vacuum cleaner. Vacuum your carpets and rugs and use the attachments to reach any corners and edges, especially around your furniture, your baseboards and your door frames.

You can also use a damp mop, if you have enough time, and remove any stains or spills. However, be careful not to wet your floors too much.

How to Determine the Right Frequency for Deep Cleaning

How to Determine the Right Frequency for Deep Cleaning - Emily's Maids of Dallas

Hello! We’re back with another cleaning article! This time, we want to talk about how to determine the right frequency for deep cleaning.

Deep cleaning is a type of service offered by most maid services in Dallas. This is a thorough process that removes dirt, dust, grime and germs from your home. It goes beyond a regular cleaning that you do once or twice a week.

We don’t always need to clean the same surfaces, which means some of them are often cleaned only with a deep cleaning checklist.

Whether you’re doing this on your own or hiring a professional house cleaning service, it’s good to know the right frequency for deep cleaning. As we always say, we want to clean smarter, not harder!

As always, remember to check Emily’s Maids of Dallas main page. We are a maid cleaning service in Dallas with over 12 years of experience.

And if you want to take on this challenge, that’s awesome too! We’ll give you some tips to decide exactly when to deep clean your home, and when to do some light cleaning instead.

The Benefits of Deep Cleaning Your Home

Before we start, you may be asking yourself: why should I choose deep cleaning in the first place?

As we were mentioning earlier, deep cleaning is only necessary a handful of times around the year. And yes, it is time-consuming and tiresome, but it’s going to bring you many benefits for your health, comfort and even your productivity.

For example, you will notice the air quality will improve after deep cleaning. You will also reduce the risk of allergies and infections, eliminate stubborn stains and odors. Last but not least, deep cleaning can even help you create a more pleasant and organized environment.

Some surfaces are only cleaned with deep cleaning (e.g., carpet floors, behind your kitchen appliances). This means they are slowly getting dirty and building up grime.

Should I Add Decluttering and Organizing to My Deep Cleaning Checklist?

If you are doing this on your own, you may want to include decluttering and organizing as part of your deep cleaning. This is, in fact, quite common because these activities actually match the standard frequency for deep cleaning services.

You could also do them separately, especially if you have a large home. For example, you can leave the last Sunday of the month for decluttering and organizing.

Then, schedule the last Sunday of the next month for deep cleaning (vacuuming, disinfecting, dusting, and so on).

This way, you will create a consistent pattern while also switching things up.

If this sounds too overwhelming, you can use quarters instead of months. This means you could leave the last week of June and December for deep cleaning, and the last week of March and September for organizing and decluttering.

If your home is quite small and you don’t need to declutter as often, this could be a great schedule!

Here are some guidelines to help you determine the right frequency for cleaning:

Related: Cleaning and Organizing Your Household: An Easy Guide

Deep Cleaning According to the Size and Type of Space

The size and type of space could be the biggest deciding factor. The larger and more complex your space is, the more often it may need deep cleaning. We tend to fill every area we find in our home with more and more belongings.

The easiest way to keep this under control is by having a small space to start with. With a small studio or 1-bedroom apartment and minimal furniture, you may only need deep cleaning twice a year.

On the contrary, a large house with multiple rooms, pets, children and clutter may need deep cleaning 4 – 6 times a year.

Messy Workspace - Emily's Maids of Dallas

Consider the Level of Traffic and Activity in Your Space

The more people and pets using your space, the more dirty and messy it will be. If you live alone or with one partner, you probably won’t need to clean as often as someone with a large family or with guests coming in regularly.

If you have young children living at home, this also increases the frequency for deep cleaning, even if it’s just one. It’s important to keep your surfaces clean and sanitized because toddlers will touch them often.

Working from home is an important factor too, especially if you have a workspace where you generate dust or debris (such as woodworking or painting).

In this case, try to adapt your space in a way that this activity doesn’t affect your entire house. Some good examples are sliding doors (which you can install using only a drill!) and room dividers.

Consider the Season and Weather Conditions Before Deep Cleaning

If you live in Dallas, you probably have noticed by now that some seasons have high humidity and low (or very high) temperatures.

The weather can affect the amount of dust, pollen, mold and other allergens present in the air, on the walls, or on the floors.

For example, in the spring, we all know pollen levels in Dallas increase significantly.

In the winter, heating systems dry out the air, which means you will have dry air, which can cause sore throats or irritation in your nose and lungs.

You may also need to deep clean more often if you live in a permanently humid or rainy area. This increases the chance of mold and mildew.

Consider Your Personal Standards and Preferences

Ultimately, it is up to you to decide how much you want to deep clean your home. Deep cleaning demands more time and money (even if you’re doing it on your own).

Are you laid-back about cleaning and want to keep your home just decently clean and tidy? Then, once or twice a year would be perfect and more than enough.

Are you a cleaning aficionado who takes pride in having the cleanest home in town? Perfect! Increase this frequency to once every other month, or once a quarter.

There you have it! Our suggested frequency for deep cleaning based on your household needs.

Remember you have dozens of deep cleaning schedules available on the internet, including our blog! Feel free to adapt them to your needs and budget.

We understand deep cleaning your entire home at one may be too overwhelming. If this is the case in your home, you can deep clean one room or area at a time every month. You can also divide taks between yourself and your family members or, of course, hire a house cleaning service for some or all of the.

We hope these tips helped you figure out the best frequency for deep cleaning your home. Stay tuned for more cleaning tips!

Microfiber vs Cotton: Which one is the best cleaning material?

Microfiber vs Cotton Which One Is The Best Cleaning Material - Article Cover - Emily's Maids of Dallas

Hello and welcome back to Emily’s Maids of Dallas! This time, we’re going to talk about a big cleaning feud: Microfiber vs Cotton: Which one is the best cleaning material?

Both microfiber and cotton have their own advantages and disadvantages when it comes to cleaning. In fact, they’re two of the most frequent materials used for cleaning.

In this article, we will compare microfiber vs cotton and let you know which one might be the best for your cleaning needs.

Before we start, remember to check Emily’s Maids of Dallas! With our professional house cleaning service you can forget about having to clean your home for hours on end.

However, we know many of our readers are fellow housekeepers and cleaning aficionados. In that case, enjoy our article!

Microfiber vs Cotton: The Benefits of Using Microfiber

Microfiber is a synthetic material that is made up of extremely fine fibers. These fibers are woven together to create a durable and absorbent material. As you can imagine, this makes it perfect for cleaning!

A good cleaning material needs to be durable because you will be scrubbing and moving your cloth or sponge everywhere, and it will be in contact with cleaning products as well.

Besides, it needs to be absorbent to trap dirt and grease particles between fibers, and to absorb your cleaning agents after cleaning. Microfiber has fantastic absorbency power. Microfiber cloths are created out of hundreds of ultrafine fibers.

These fibers have a positive charge that attracts negatively charged particles like dirt and dust.

This is one of the reasons why microfiber is the most prominent material used in cloths and towels at the moment.

Microfiber is gentle on pretty much every type of surface as well, which makes them extremely versatile. Besides, they have different densities which are measured in GSM (grams per square meter).

This makes them even more adaptable to different areas. If you need more absorbing power, for example, you should use a microfiber towel or cloth with a higher GSM count.

Cotton may need to be washed more often than microfiber towels or rags.

Microfiber vs Cotton: The Benefits of Using Cotton

O the other hand, there are some situations where cotton may be a better choice than microfiber.

Here are some examples:

Clean rough surfaces such as concrete can tear up microfiber pads. In this case, a good cotton towel or cloth might be more resistant, because it can handle abrasive materials better.

Cotton usually has longer fibers that can hold more liquid and debris. When you need to mop large amounts of liquid, cotton can be more efficient than microfiber. This is why you still see cotton pads and microfiber pads.

If environmental impact is an important factor for you, then sadly both cotton and microfiber are contaminating. Cotton comes from plants, but it requires large amounts of water and pesticides.

Microfiber is made from synthetic materials, but it is not biodegradable and increases ocean microplastic pollution. However, when comparing both of them, cotton is the most eco-friendly option.

If you have sensitive skin, cotton is certainly more gentle and breathable. Microfiber can be rough or irritating, especially if it has a lower GSM count.

Also, if your microfiber towels are dragging dirt or debris, there is a higher chance of them scratching delicate surfaces.

As a cleaning service, we use professional-grade microfiber cloths and surgical huck rags. Thanks to its design, it avoids streaks and absorbs dirt and dust wonderfully. As you can see, we use both microfiber and cotton.

They both work well and we encourage you to try both types and see what works better for you.

How to Get Children Involved In Cleaning and Organizing

How to Get Children Involved in Cleaning and Organizing - Emily's Maids of Dallas

Hello and welcome back to Emily’s Maids blog! Today we wanted to talk about a topic that we hear all the time: how to get children involved in cleaning and organizing.

Creating a schedule to involve kids in cleaning has many benefits. You will teach them responsibility, family values and how to keep after themselves.

In this article, we will give you our best tips to motivate your kids into helping you with cleaning and organizing.

Before we get started, remember to check Emily’s Maids of Dallas if you need a cleaning service in the Dallas/Fort-Worth area.

Now, without further ado, let’s get right into it!

The Benefits of Getting Children Involved in Cleaning and Organizing

We have talked in the past about children involved in cleaning and organizing. There are many benefits for both the kids and the responsible adults that are raising them.

According to research, if you assign them cleaning tasks, they will increase their self-steem, discipline and responsibility.

Besides, you are helping yourself and the other adults at home, too! The kids will grow up to be proactive and independent. You won’t feel like you are the only one responsible for taking care of your home.

At the end of the day, the best possible outcome is having your kids actually wanting to help you and feeling good after doing so.

Determine the Cleaning Tasks:

First things first, what is going to be cleaned in the first place?

For obvious reasons, a list of cleaning tasks for kids is going to be slightly different than a regular one.

We have created many cleaning checklists in the past. You can find them in our blog and include your children in these activities.

Find the tasks that make more sense to you and to your children’s needs.

Related: Cleaning and Organizing Your Household: An Easy Guide

Assign Tasks to Each Child:

Once you have your list of cleaning, tasks, assign each task to a child based on their age and abilities.

These tasks need to be age-appropriate and as directly related to them as possible. As they grow older, you can give them tasks that are beneficial for the whole family or for other family members.

If they are too young, you may need to simplify some tasks or assign them a smaller role with one or two tasks.

The most important step is to change their goals and tasks as they grow older and give them more independence and responsibility, without being overbearing. They are still kids at the end of the day.

The tasks that you don’t find appropriate for any of your kids should be in charge of an adult.

Kids get motivated if they see they parents, their loved ones or their siblings doing the same activity. Besides making it fun, they do not want to feel left out!

Create a Schedule to Get Children Involved in Cleaning and Organizing

Once you have your entire set of tasks and they are assigned to your kids, it’s time to incorporate them into a schedule.

The trick to creating a good checklist is to make it your own. Every household is different, and every family has different dynamics.

A regular schedule for cleaning is usually the best route to take. You can choose a weekly schedule or cleaning every day after dinner. As long as it’s realistic and not too tiresome, it will work.

In some cases, you will have to use different schedules. For example, if your kids have different school hours, extracurricular activities or hobbies.

Besides, some kids are early birds and some are night owls. You can talk to them and find out what time is best for them to finish their tasks.

Children helping with cleaning and organizing

Make It Fun!

The most important step here is to place yourself in your kid’s shoes. Kids see many parts of our life as a game, especially when they are really young.

That is why many activities in school are created in a way that is fun and entertaining. The goal is for them to learn and have fun at the same time!

Cleaning doesn’t have to be a chore. Even if you are an adult, you can enjoy your cleaning tasks! Make it fun by playing music or setting a timer for a cleaning challenge.

Children will be more involved in cleaning and organizing if they see adults enjoying what they are doing.

You can also add a few awards or make it into a fun competition. You can split it into teams and see who does a better job and also listen to them if they have any fun ideas or suggestions.

Stick to the Schedule:

Once you have created the schedule, make sure you and your children stick to it. Consistency is key and you don’t want to create a schedule that is too overbearing or unrealistic.

You can always adjust your tasks to be more reasonable and achievable.

Remember, it’s more about teaching them responsibility and good habits and not so much about finding the perfect cleaners.

Celebrate progress and accomplishments! If they stick to the schedule X consecutive times, they get a reward.

Provide feedback:

After each cleaning session, provide feedback to your kids on how they did.

Kids get motivated if they see they parents, their loved ones or their siblings doing the same activity. Besides making it fun, they do not want to feel left out!

If you want it to make this sustainable in the long term, it’s important to receive feedback from them as well.

Remember, this doesn’t have to feel like a ‘chore’. It just another part of their lifes that they need to incorporate into their routines.

The Fourth of July 2-Hour Cleaning Checklist

July 3, 2023 by emilysmaids

The Fourth of July 2-hour cleaning checklist - Article Cover - Emily's Maids of Dallas

Hello and welcome back to Emily’s Maids! We are so excited for the Fourth of July and we wanted to create a 2-Hour Cleaning Checklist to clean your home quickly before tomorrow.

We know you have busy, hectic lives with a lot to do during the day and the weekend.

And if you’re expecting guests or family tomorrow, we know you want them to be impressed with how clean your home is.

Before we continue, remember you can visit Emily’s Maids of Dallas if you need a cleaning service, especially before the Fourth of July, or even on the same day if you’re in a hurry!

However, if you prefer doing this on your own, we’ve created a quick 2-hour checklist to help you get started!

What You Need to Clean Your Home Before the Fourth of July

First of all, make sure you have the following items available:

  • To clean your floors, you will need a vacuum cleaner, a broom, a dustpan, a mop and a bucket.
  • Microfiber cloths, a multipurpose cleaner, and a spray bottle filled with water and white vinegar for general cleaning.
  • A toilet brush and a toilet cleaner, if you have one.

The First Step In Your Cleaning: The Entryway

According to Bed Threads, the first two things your guests will notice about your home are the smell and the entryway.

The entryway is the first impression your guests will have of your home. Make sure it looks tidy and, most importantly, that it smells good.

If you smell a nice fragrance as soon as you walk in, it will set the tone for the rest of your house.

Sweep or vacuum the floors, and wipe down the door and the doorknobs (details matter!). Leave plenty of room in your coat and shoe rack for guests to hang up their belongings.

This should take around 15 – 20 minutes.

Clean and tidy entryway

Cleaning Your Bathrooms Before the Fourth of July

We’ve placed the bathrooms as second in our list. It’s because the least you want your guests to see is having a dirty bathroom.

Scrub the toilet bowl and the seat with a toilet brush and toilet cleaner. If you don’t have toilet cleaner, add one cup of white vinegar and one tablespoon of mild dish soap, let sit for one hour and scrub.

Of course, clean your faucet and your mirror as well. You know a bathroom hasn’t been cleaned in a while if you see a mirror with streaks or toothpaste splatters (ew!).

Last but not least, take out the trash and organize your toiletries.

This cleaning task takes around 30 to 40 minutes, so make sure to plan your time ahead.

Related: How to Properly Clean Your Toilet

Next on Your Cleaning Checklist: The Living Room

Now, it’s time to move on to the living room. This is the place where you will spend most of your time with guests, so it needs to be both tidy and comfortable.

Fluff up the pillows and cushions and, if possible, use an upholstery cleaner to clean your sofa. Dust any surfaces and electronics, especially your TV stand and your coffee table.

Grab a basket or drawer and place any books, magazines or toys that are lying around.

Last but not least, vacuum the carpet or mop the floors.

This should take you more than 20 minutes.

Sweeping living room floors

Next On Our List: The Kitchen

This is where you will prepare and serve food and drinks for your guests and enjoy a nice Fourth of July dinner. Doing some quick cleaning your kitchen will take you around 30 minutes as well.

Wash any dishes or load them in the dishwasher.

Wipe down the countertops and the sink, using the vinegar and water mix.

Wipe your fridge, your microwave and your oven as well. You might need to use all-purpose cleaner to clean your oven on the inside.

Bonus: Don’t Forget Your Guest Bedrooms!

If you are planning on having guests stay over, you definitely need to take care of your guest bedroom.

These are where your guests may rest or store their belongings, even if you don’t stay overnight.

Change your bedding and put away any clutter. Also, vacuum the carpet or mop the floors and dust any surfaces and furniture.

Put spare pillows or blankets at hand and make some room in your closet for your guests as well.

If you plan things out beforehand, this shouldn’t take you more than 15 minutes.

Cleaning Your Guest Bedrooms


There you have it! We know these are the final hours before the Fourth of July but we’re sure you can complete this 2-hour cleaning checklist succesfully.

Final tip: make sure you take care of what’s important. There’s no point in cleaning anything that is not visible to your guests. This includes your pantry, your cabinets or behind your curtains or blinds.

Last but not least, don’t be afraid to ask for help. We know each minute counts.

If you want to get your house cleaned in 2 hours, ask for help from friends and family, or a professional cleaning service.

We hope you have a fantastic Fourth of July and that you get to spend it with friends and family. Remember to visit Emily’s Maids of Dallas blog for more cleaning tips.

Messy Home After Father’s Day? Here’s How You Clean It

Messy Home After Father’s Day Here’s How You Clean It - Emily's Maids of Dallas

Hello and welcome back to our cleaning blog! Do you have a messy home after Father’s Day? Here’s how you can clean it!

First of all, happy (belated) Father’s Day! We know how important dads are to our society and they deserve a special day. Besides, it’s the perfect opportunity to share as a family, enjoy a day out, or stay home.

With all that happening this past weekend, we know your house might be a bit of a mess.

This is why we wanted to create a quick checklist to clean and tidy your home, and maybe surprise the fathers of the family with a spotless house!

Here are some tips to clean a messy home after Father’s Day!

The First Step After Father’s Day: Decluttering

If you had a fun Father’s Day yesterday, the best idea is to declutter your home first. The first step is to remove any wrappings, disposable foil pans, or anything else from yesterday.

Of course, that is just the beginning, and there’s probably a lot more going on in your home that needs to be decluttered, especially if you haven’t done so in a while.

A fantastic way to declutter your home quickly is to sort your items into 3 boxes: donate, keep, and throw away.

Leave sentimental items for last, because you want to build momentum before facing the hardest set of items.

Vacuum and Mop the Floors

Floors are kind of the telltale sign that your home has just been cleaned or that it has been a while. All the mess and dust from countertops, tables, bookshelves, and every other surface.

For starters, sweep your hard floors, whether they are tile, wooden, laminate or vinyl. If possible, vacuum them as well. If you have carpet floors, jump straight to vacuuming.x

Carpet floors need even more care because they absorb so much dirt between fibers.

Next, deodorize them with a specific commercial deodorizer or search for DIY solutions according to your type of floor.

For example, you can deodorize carpet floors with a spritz of vodka, or a 1:1 water and white vinegar mix. Optionally, add 5 to 10 drops of essential oils for a nice fragrance.

The same goes for mopping your hard floors. Because you will probably need more product, you can mix one cup of vinegar and 1 gallon of water, with 20 drops of essential oil.

Do this on a sunny day when your floors can dry quickly. Be careful with hardwood floors, as excessive water might cause damage.

Vacuuming Floors - Emily's Maids of Dallas

Wipe and Disinfect All Surfaces

Just like floors, large, flat surfaces are a good sign that your home is clean and tidy. First, check if your surfaces are too crowded or cluttered. This happens frequently in your kitchen, for example.

Get some organizers if you feel like you always have random items scattered across your dining table or your desktop.

Pro tip: if you use a round basket or a lazy susan to organize your items, they will always be facing the right direction.

Then. apply a cleaning product that cleans and sanitize your surfaces. A 1:1 rubbing alcohol or white vinegar and water mix is usually effective.

If the area is particularly greasy or dirty, you could add a few drops of all-purpose cleaner.

Vacuum and Clean the Car for Father’s Day

This is a fantastic surprise because many people neglect cleaning and sanitizing their cars on the inside. What better way to start the week than by having a car that looks clean and fresh?

Start by removing the rubbish and taking out the floor mats.

Next, you need to vacuum to remove all loose dirt and dust particles that are too small for you to grab with your hands. A handheld vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment would be ideal to achieve this.

Now, the trick here is to adapt your cleaning products to your surfaces (leather or cloth). Leather is more sensitive, which is why, ideally, you would use a specific leather cleaner & moisturizer.

If you don’t have one, use a 4-parts water, one-part castile soap or dish soap. Mix and apply to a microfiber cloth, never directly to your seats. Most importantly, never use bleach or ammonia to clean your seats.

With cloth seats it’s easier, as you only need a bit of soapy water and a microfiber cloth or a very soft sponge.

Get a cloth and use the solution to wipe the inside with dish soap or all-in-one concentrate. Make sure you get everything, including the steering wheel and the dashboard.

The last stage is cleaning the windows. Start by creating a mix with equal parts of white vinegar, distilled water and rubbing alcohol. Distilled water is important, especially if you live in states like Dallas with hard water that leaves little streaks as you go with a towel.

Mix and pour into a spray bottle. Apply to a microfiber cloth and wipe from top to bottom.

Clean Your Workstation for Father’s Day

For any dads working from home or having their little workspace, it’s important to clean and sanitize those areas.

Clear the workspace and wipe down the surface, including edges and corners. Make sure you have 2 – 3 microfiber towels to wipe everything dry. The first one could be a disposable cloth because it is going to absorb a lot of dust and grime.

Vacuum the area and put everything back.

For your monitors or laptop screens, use a glass microfiber cloth with a tiny bit of water. Apply directly to the cloth and never to the surface directly.

The most important step is to make sure this area stays as clean and tidy as long as possible. Gather your supplies which you can take from our instructions above.

Nowadays you have many different organizing systems such as rolling carts and wall grid panels.

Cleaning Messy Office for father's day


That’s it! We’re sure these tips will help you get your home sparkly clean right after Father’s Day.

Remember to check Emily’s Maids of Dallas if you need a professional maid service to take care of your home.

To start, melt 1/2 cup of beeswax in a double boiler. Once it melted, remove from heat and stir, adding 1/4 cup of olive oil and 1/4 cup of jojoba oil. Once combined, pour the mixture into a container and let it cool.

Scoop a small amount onto a soft microfiber cloth and rub onto your furniture. Always move in a soft, circular motion.

You can replace linseed oil with carnauba wax if you want to. The carnauba is harder and also has a higher melting point. This means it will give a harder finish. But that’s up to your personal preferences!

Always test first in a small, hidden area to ensure it won’t cause staining.

Olive Oil and Lemon Juice Furniture Polish

This polish is quite simple and straightforward. Just mix 1/4 cup of olive oil and 1/4 cup of lemon juice.

Olive oil is a well-known natural moisturizer and this is necessary from time to time. However, if you notice your furniture is already ‘oily’, it’s best to skip this recipe.

Apply a small amount to a soft cloth and rub it onto your furniture using a soft, circular motion.

Let it sit for a few minutes, and buff using a clean cloth.

Coconut Oil and Lemon Essential Oil Furniture Polish:

Coconut oil is a carrier oil, which means that it helps to “carry” an essential oil such as lemon oil.

Lemon essential oil can help to clean and remove dirt and grime from your furniture. It can also leaving a fresh and pleasant scent. However, lemon oil can be too acidic and not suitable for all types of furniture.

To create this solution, just mix 1/4 cup of melted coconut oil with 15 drops of lemon essential oil.

To apply, repeat the instructions from the other solutions: rub in a circular motion and wipe dry with a clean cloth.

Coffee Grounds and Olive Oil

This recipe is quite unusual, but effective! Coffee grounds are abrasive and able to remove dirt and scratches from the wood. With friction, they slowly add color and aroma to the wood.

Olive oil, on the other hand, is a moisturizer.

You will need 1/4 cup of used coffee grounds and 1/4 cup of olive oil. Mix them in a bowl until well combined.

Rub it onto your furniture in a circular motion and buff with a dry microfiber cloth for extra shine. If you notice the wood grain, follow the direction of the grain. Avoid using too much polish or leaving any excess on the surface.

How to Properly Clean and Maintain Your Granite Countertops

How to properly clean and maintain your granite countertops - Emily's Maids of Dallas

Hi! Welcome back to Emily’s Maids blog! Today, we’ll give you tips on how to properly clean and maintain your granite countertops.

Granite countertops are one of the most popular choices for homeowners. You may see them on your kitchen, your bathroom and your laundry room.

Granite countertops are not only beautiful and elegant, but they are also durable, as long as you take good care of them. If you clean and maintain them with the right supplies, your granite countertops will remain in excellent condition for many years to come.

In this article, we’ll give you our secrets to clean granite countertops without damaging the surface.

Don’t forget to visit Emily’s Maids of Dallas if you need a house cleaning service in the Dallas area! We’ll take good care of your granite countertops. And the rest of your house too.

Now, without further ado, let’s get those granite countertops squeaky clean!

What Is Granite?

First of all, it’s always good to know where your material comes from to understand how you should treat it.

Granite is a type of rock that was once magma and then cooled down and turned completely solid.

The process is quite simple: you grab a giant rock of natural stone, and cut it into slabs with gang saws, cover it with resin and cure it using an industrial oven.

Most natural stone countertops are imported from Italy, Spain, Brazil, and China.

Why Cleaning Granite Countertops is Important

Natural stone is sensitive to stains, scratches and humidity overall. Although resin protects granite, if you use the wrong cleaning product or technique, you can damage this protective coating.

If you take good care of your granite countertops, you will see they stay as shiny as ever.

Besides, cleaning any countertop or surface is important. By cleaning your granite countertops, you are removing dirt and bacteria accumulating on the surface.

Last but not least, granite countertops are always a plus in a home or property. They add value to any kitchen or bathroom.

But if they look worn out or dull, it can decrease your entire property’s value and discourage potential buyers.

Clean Spills Immediately

Cleaning spills is one of the most important things you can do if you want to preserve your granite countertops.

This is because, besides leaving permanent superficial stains, spills can slowly penetrate the surface. If they are acidic compounds such as lemon juice or vinegar, they are going to eat away at the surface.

This leaves dull spots or marks known as etching. Definitely something to avoid.

At this point, you might be wondering the most effective way to wipe spills. If you have microfiber or cotton kitchen cloths, you will have to be constant and clean them right away, and they will still harbor bacteria after some time. And if you use napkins, you will spend too much paper.

A happy medium would be to get yourself reusable (washable) napkins or paper towels. They are cheaper than regular microfiber cloths but can also last for +2 weeks. This is the perfect time window for you to use them several times and then throw them away.

Besides, you can use them to wipe your sink after each use. Just remember to rinse and hang them dry after using them!

Prevent Damage Before Having to Clean

The best strategy for cleaning is not having to clean at all. It’s best to find some affordable solutions to prevent using your countertops directly. You have anything from trivets, mats, coasters, and cutting boards.

As we were mentioning earlier, acidic or oily substances can etch or stain the stone. Some examples are orange or lemon juice, tomato sauce, coffee, wine or cooking oil. Even if it’s just cold water dripping from a glass, it will create a watermark with time.

Do not place hot pots or pans directly on the surface, because they can crack the stone.

If you protect your granite countertops, they will last much longer and you will also save on cleaning products.

Avoid Harsh Cleaners

For example, even though white vinegar is extremely versatile and a great cleaner, it doesn’t work as well with granite. As we were mentioning earlier, this will be more of a problem than a solution. The same goes for ammonia, bleach, or citric acid.

You have two options here: either a specialized natural stone cleaner, or just a mild dish soap. Whatever it is, make sure it is pH-neutral and non-abrasive.

Green multi-purpose cleaners can work on many different surfaces and they are usually more gentle than other commercial cleaners.

How to Seal and Polish Your Granite Countertops

Besides regular cleaning, you will have two more extra tasks that you ned to do to preserve your granite countertops.

The first one is sealing. As we were mentioning earlier, granite is a natural stone that is sealed with resin during its creation. You can test the current state of your sealant by sprinkling some water on the surface. If water sinks in and the granite darkens, it’s time to replace your sealant.

You can buy a granite sealer online or in a home improvement store. It’s very important that the surface is clean and dry and that you follow the instructions on the label. Therefore, make sure you use a handheld vacuum cleaner, microfiber cloths or whatever you need to ensure the surface is spotless.

You will often have to wait 24 hours before using your countertop again. You should reseal your countertops every 1 – 3 years.

The next task would be polishing. Polish your granite countertops with a soft cloth and a granite polish. You need specialized polish, as they are designed to enhance the color and shine of the stone.

If your countertops are clean but with fingerprints or smudges, you can use rubbing alcohol and a microfiber cloth to remove them. Avoid using wax or oil-based products because they leave a residue that attracts dirt and dust.


There it is! Your granite countertops will remain nice and shiny for a long time. Make sure you follow our cleaning blog and stay tuned with our tips!

Easter Cleaning Checklist

Easter Cleaning Checklist - Emily's Maids of Dallas

Hi! Were back with another article! We know today is Easter so, what better way to celebrate than with an Easter cleaning checklist?

Easter is a time of renewal and rebirth, and it’s a perfect opportunity to do some deep cleaning and decluttering in your home.

By now, the weather starts to warm up and the days get longer. Let’s make your home feel clean and fresh again. With an Easter cleaning checklist, you will stay organized and ensure you don’t miss any important tasks.

Before we continue, remember to check our house cleaning service in Dallas. If you need our help this Easter, Emily’s Maids is always happy to help!

Here’s a step-by-step checklist to make sure you hit all the right areas in your home. We want to help you deep clean your home and enjoy it with your friends and family this Easter!

Easter Cleaning Step #1: Clean and Organize Your Kitchen

If you plan to cook or bake for Easter, then you better start cleaning and organizing your kitchen!

It’s a good idea to start with your kitchen because it is one of the most time-consuming areas, and you can leave your cleaning products act on the surface while you take care of other areas.

Easter is a good opportunity to deep clean your appliances, which we know tend to be overlooked in regular cleaning.

The appliances that will need most care are probably your fridge, your stove and your oven. If you are deep cleaning your oven, look for fume-free oven cleaners or eco-friendly oven cleaners.

Next, you have your countertops, cabinets, and drawers. You will need a few microfiber cloths and all-purpose soap.

If you have the time for deep cleaning, you have to clean your sink, faucets and handles as well. A steam cleaner will be perfect for this job as it an reach difficult nooks and crannies. Besides, it’s able to melt down grease and buildup.

Last but not least, sweep and mop your floors and make sure you open a window to let fresh air in. If you have ceramic tiles, mopping with a one part vinegar, 10 parts water mix should be enough. You can add a few drops of essential oil to help you add a nice fragrance. (If you have pets, check first if they are allergic to essential oils).

Next Step: Your Living Room

This is the next step in our Easter cleaning checklist, although you can swap it out with other areas if you need to.

Start by dusting all surfaces such as your shelves, your coffee table and your TV stand.

Clean any mirrors or glass surfaces using ammonia-free glass cleaner. If you don’t have one, create a cleaning solution with one cup of warm water, one cup of white vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon of mild dish soap. Use a squeegee to wipe the solution and let dry.

Clean any upholstery or pillows too. They are often forgotten within your everyday cleaning checklist. Easter is the perfect time to clean these items! Especially if you are having guests soon. Check the care tag from your upholstery and pillows.

Depending on the material, you might need to clean them with water, solvent-based cleaners, or just with a cloth or a vacuum cleaner.

Next on Your Easter Cleaning Checklist: Your Bathrooms

Your bathrooms are next and, for obvious reasons, one of the most challenging areas to clean. The key is to let your cleaning agents act on their own.

An effective DIY cleaning solution for your bathrooms are vinegar and baking soda. The good part is that you can let them any of them act on the surface for a long time. Then, add the next product to create a chemical reaction.

Don’t worry! Mixing white vinegar and baking soda is perfectly safe. After you’ve added them to your surfaces, let 10 – 15 minutes and wipe. Make sure you leave a cleaning brush to use in your bathroom only.

If you prefer using commercial cleaning products, do not mix them (this happens quite frequently). They are meant to be used individually.

Next on Your Easter Cleaning List: Your Bedrooms

Because we’re talking about Easter and deep cleaning, you need to make a big change in your bedrooms!

First, wash all bedding, including sheets, blankets, and pillowcases. Just like you did with your upholstery and pillows, check the care tag to ensure you are using the right cleaning technique.

Dust your bed frames, headboards and nightstands. You can use your vacuum cleaner with the proper attachment. Next, use a slightly damp microfiber cloth.

You can add one or two drops of olive oil if you have wood furniture. It will slightly moisturize your surface and give it a nice shine.

Vacuum and Clean Your Carpets and Rugs

Vacuuming is one of the most important steps, especially if you have area rugs and/or carpet floors. Carpets and rugs harbor dirt, dust, allergens, and pet hair. This affects the air quality and appearance of your home.

We know that Dallas has poor air quality. Therefore, it is important to keep your home deodorized and breathe clean, fresh air.

If you have allergies, microbes in your carpets and rugs will make you sneeze often. That’s a sign you need to vacuum and clean your rugs and carpets.

First, pick up any large objects or debris on the carpet or rug. Do this to avoid your vacuum from getting clogged or damaged. Pick up all furniture items that you can move around.

Vacuum the carpets or rugs to remove loose debris. Use a crevice tool or a brush tool attachment to reach into corners and edges.

Make sure you vacuum in different directions to lift up the carpet fibers. Go slow and steady to ensure you are truly absorbing all the dirt in your carpet floors or rugs. Clean hair off the brushroll regularly.

If you have a steam cleaner or a wet/dry vacuum cleaner, you will be able to remove even more dirt. Follow the instructions on your vacuum cleaner or steamer and fill the water tank with any cleaning solution (if needed).

Do not oversaturate your carpet floors with water, because you will need them to dry thoroughly after you’ve finished.

Let your carpets and rugs dry completely before putting any furniture back on them. This might take several hours or even a day, depending on where you live. Dallas tends to be humid but with high temperatures, so it shouldn’t take too long.

If possible, use a dehumidifier, windows, or fans to speed up the process.

Bonus Details for your Easter Cleaning Checklist

Last but not least, make sure you check every detail and areas that you normally miss with your daily cleaning.

This includes windowsills, baseboards and ceiling fans. They slowly gather dirt on top of them and you might not notice this, but your guests will!

Spring Cleaning Tips for St. Patrick’s Day

March 16, 2023 by emilysmaids

Spring Cleaning Tips for St Patrick's Day - Emily's Maids of Dallas

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner! What better way to celebrate than by doing some Spring Cleaning for St. Patrick’s Day? Both spring and St. Patrick’s day are starting in just a few days.

Today we wanted to give you some tips to clean your home this week before St. Patrick’s Day.

You’ll be starting the spring season with the right foot, and if you’re planning a big party, you’ll impress your guests and have so much fun!

As always, make sure you check Emily’s Maids of North Dallas page to book our professional cleaning service in the North Dallas area. Remember we also are serving Dallas, Grapevine and Flower Mound.

Without further ado, let’s read some cleaning tips for St. Patrick’s Day to have your home cleaned in the blink of an eye.

Start With Decluttering Before St. Patrick’s Day

First of all, we always recommend decluttering. This is a fantastic opportunity because spring is a season where you can add so much color and personality to your home. Besides, once a quarter is the perfect frequency to remove old, unused objects that no longer bring happiness to your home.

If you have the chance, take the time to declutter your home, but make sure you stay on track to finish before St. Patrick’s Day, which is tomorrow! If anything, take half a day to declutter your most problematic areas.

Here’s a tip: set a timer for each area and leave 30 extra minutes to wrap up. Try to be realistic about your goals because it’s better to finish a small, more realistic goal than set yourself a bigger goal and then feel frustrated by not finishing your goal.

Another great tool is to use three boxes to sort out your items. The three boxes are Keep, Donate, or Trash. Get rid of items that are no longer helpful or that do not add any value to your home.

This includes old magazines and newspapers, broken toys or clothes that are not your right fit anymore. If they are in good condition, you can donate them. Otherwise you should get rid of them.

Decluttering for St Patrick's Day - Emily's Maids of Dallas

Refresh Your Bedding

Your bedding is one of the most important elements of your house. Now with the new season, you need to make sure you don’t have dust or allergens flying around.

This is the perfect time to deep clean your pillowcases and your comforter. Over the year they are gathering dust, sweat, and bacteria.

If you are still sleeping uncomfortably or if you notice allergic reactions all the time, the problem could be related to moisture or dust in the air. In this case, you can either invest in an air filter, a humidifier, or a dehumidifier, depending on the issue. This will certainly increase your sleep quality.

Clean Out Your Fridge and Pantry

While you’re at it, it’s time to deep clean your fridge and pantry. If you are decluttering, this is a perfect time because your shelves will be empty and ready for you to wipe them clean!

This will take you around 1 to 2 hours so take that into consideration for your schedule.

To clean your pantry and your fridge, here are some tips you can apply:

  • Check the expiration date! You might be surprised to find items that are no longer safe to eat. Check all your herbs and spices as well to ensure they are still tasty.
  • If you have the time, find an organizational system that works for you, such as lazy susans, stackable containers or just bins and baskets.
  • You might find some areas where you have greasy spots. A hard-bristled brush may be useful along with some degreaser or concentrated dish soap.
  • A white-vinegar mix is usually great for different types of surfaces. You might want to use an all-purpose cleaner or a bit of liquid dish soap.

Clean Your Outdoor Living Space Before St. Patrick’s Day

Now that the weather is warmer, you can sweep your deck or patio. Also, pay attention to any outdoor furniture that needs to be washed.

For wood furniture, you can try using 1/4 cup of castile soap and pouring it into one gallon of warm water. Wipe your furniture and dry it thoroughly. If possible, let it air dry for a couple of hours.

Check for any necessary repairs because you want to enjoy your outdoor furniture to the fullest now that spring is just around the corner.

Focus on The Floors

You probably want to leave floors for last because, as you know, the smartest route is to clean from top to bottom. If you have been decluttering, for example, you know a lot of dust and lint is going to fall directly to your floors, so you want to wait until you’ve finished your other cleaning tasks before deep cleaning all your floors and remove all that dust and dirt.

As you know, each type of floor needs different cleaning steps. Mild dish soap and warm water are usually safe for pretty much all types of floors.

To deep clean carpet floors and area rugs, consider hiring a carpet cleaning service or renting a steam cleaner. Keep in mind the steam cleaner will take you around 3 – 4 hours if you have a big home. For hardwood or tile floors, sweep all floors and if possible, use a vacuum cleaner to reach corners and other areas.

Then, use a damp mop with just a tiny bit of soap and other cleaning agent (white vinegar, apple cider vinegar, etc). Mop with a fresh clean mop again and then a second time with a dry, absorbent mop. It’s best to do this with plenty of sunlight and airflow to help your floors dry faster.

Pro tip: read our Essential Oils Cleaning Guide! You can add a few drops of essential oil to give your floors a delicious fragrace. However, keep in mind not all essential oils are safe for pets.

Bring in Fresh Flowers For St. Patrick’s Day

Nothing says spring like fresh flowers! And besides adding some decór for St. Patrick’s Day, it’s always nice to add a few vases of fresh flowers after a deep house cleaning.

They are the perfect final touch because they add fragrance and color, and they will improve your mood when you look at them.

If you don’t like flowers, you can light a scented candle, for example. You have many scents to choose from, many of them are soothing and calming. And they are also spring themed!

You can also use an essential oils diffuser which delivers pretty much the same results. The only downside is that they need some occasional maintenance and they can be a bit noisy.
