    That’s a wonderful collection of tips and tricks that you have here! My wife and I own a cleaning company so we both know what it’s like knowing all this stuff that looks so obvious to you but people don’t really know it. It’s really sad at times tho, since people let their property get damaged because of their lack of knowledge. Recently, for example we had a client who apparently had no idea how to clean a hardwood floor and actually managed to damage his.
