Turn House Cleaning Into a Game
What better way to make house cleaning fun than to turn it into a game. There are so many ways you can do it: score points for each task you check off your list, compete against your partner or child to see who can finish cleaning a particular room first, or set a timer and see how much you can get done in a period of time. The possibilities are endless and you might have so much fun that you actually forget you’re cleaning.

Today, the team at Layla’s Maid Service would like to discuss additional ways you can maintain the cleanliness of your home for a longer period of time with some easy ideas and by changing your daily habits.
Encourage Daily CleaningKeep Cleaning Supplies Handy
You’ll find that it’s much easier to clean on the fly when you don’t have to spend 30 minutes rounding up the gloves, sponges, brushes, and cleaners you need to do the job. Consider putting a small carrier with cleaning supplies in several closets around the house. At the very least, make sure you have at least one on each floor of your house. Making it more convenient to clean will naturally encourage you to do it more often.

Spring is naturally a time when everything feels fresh and new. And for most people, it’s the perfect time to open up the windows and sweep out the dust bunnies that have accumulated over the long winter. Spring cleaning is different from your everyday cleaning in that you, or your professional cleaner, take the time to perform some really deep cleaning. It usually involves moving the furniture and cleaning behind things or in corners that you don’t usually have time to get to.
Even if you did a full spring cleaning just a few months ago, the team at Layla’s Maid Service wants to share with you why spring cleaning isn’t just for spring. As we start to turn the corner from summer to fall, now is a good time to consider doing another deep cleaning before the cooler weather sets in. Keep reading to learn why.

When you were a child, what did you learn about keeping a clean house? Were you told that you had to clean your room without any explanation as to why? Or maybe you learned that cleaning was something that was only important to do when the arrival of house guests was imminent. Unless your parents enlisted the help of professional cleaning services, being told to “pick up your toys” or “make your bed” was something you probably heard on a daily basis.
Regardless of what you were taught about cleaning, most of us know that having a clean house is a good thing, and it takes a lot of time and effort to make it happen. But why should we put so much energy into it? There are actually many reasons for keeping a clean home that extend well beyond the poorly motivating theme of “because that’s what you’re supposed to do.” Our blog will help you learn about them — from the simple and common sense to reasons that you just may have never thought of before, our blog will surely give you more motivation to keep your home clean!
You put a lot of time and effort into keeping your home clean for your family. Unfortunately, some of the house cleaning products you’re using day after day contain potentially toxic chemicals. If you’re trying to rid your home of dust, allergens, and bacteria, you probably don’t want to replace them with something even more harmful. If you’re ready to make a switch that will support the health of your family as well as the environment, why not try using safe, natural, alternatives in place of your usual cleaning products? To learn more, read this blog from Layla’s Maid Service, a family-owned cleaning company servicing Fredericksburg for over 15 years.
Why Choose Green?
More and more people are becoming aware of the products they are using and how potentially-harmful ingredients are not only poisonous, but how they can affect indoor air quality, and harm the environment. Common household cleaners are a big culprit. Ingredients such as chlorine, ammonia, lye, and artificial fragrances have been implicated in a wide range...more
Cleaning is one of the most tedious tasks in the world, and we understand that better than most as a Fredericksburg cleaning company. While it may seem like a no-brainer to assume that the difficult part of cleaning is the cleaning itself, we believe it to be remembering what you have cleaned — and what you still have left to clean.
In today’s blog post, Layla’s Maid Service, your local Fredericksburg cleaning services company is going to discuss a few things that you should make it a point to clean every week.
While it may seem like a no-brainer that it is important to clean your bathroom, it is crucial that you clean it at least once a week? “Why?” you might ask. Well, to put it simply, your bathroom is by far the dirtiest place in your house. Subsequently, it is also the place that we decide is the most fitting to clean ourselves, so it might be in your best interest to clean your bathroom a little bit more often.

Spring has passed and summer is now upon us, meaning that there is no shortcoming of airborne pollen and dust. Because of this, keeping up on home cleaning in Stafford, VA can be a little difficult in an effort to help you stay on top of cleaning this summer, your Source of home cleaning services, Layla’s Maid Service, has compiled a short list of easily dirtied places in your house that we would be willing to bet that you seldom remember to clean.
The Ceiling Fan
Often overlooked because — well — nobody really spends their time looking up, the ceiling fan is often one of the dirtiest places in Stafford homes. The reasoning behind this is that even if the fan is moving, it can accumulate dust and other airborne substances. Sadly, when a fan is full of dust, pollen, and dirt it doesn't just accumulate and hold the substances, but rather holds and redistributes the airborne substances back around your house. If you hire Layla’s Maid Service for home cleaning in Stafford, VA, you can rest easy knowing your ceiling fans will get the attention that they...more

Spring is in the air, and you know what that means. Yes, it means the flowers are starting to bloom and the trees are beginning to bud, but that isn't what we are talking about. What we associate with spring is not a pleasant as flowers and leaves, but is rather tasking and monotonous. Of course what we are talking about is spring cleaning.
