Stainless steel Cooktop Care and Maintenance

StoveOne of the most popular cooktop these days is made of stainless steel. There are plenty of types, model and sizes. Whether gas or electric, cleaning and maintaining does not have much of a difference. But use precaution. Make sure the stove is no longer hot.

Any piece of equipment works better and lasts longer when maintained properly and kept clean. Cooking equipment is no exception. Your cooktop must be kept clean. Make sure all controls are in the “OFF” position.

I recommend wiping away spills as soon as it happen to avoid spills from hardening.  A handy damp sponge will help clean up the spills. This easy clean up can be done after each cooking.

For heavy built up spills and stubborn mess more time and elbow grease cleaning maybe necessary. This is when you need to have energy and time to do the thorough cleaning. Always follow the manufacturer’s care and maintenance policy.

My recommendation from: howtocleanstuff.net

You will need Bar Keepers friend, sponge, water and soft towel/microfiber.

Wet the sponge to use to moisten the stainless surface to be clean. Spread the bar keepers friend over the stove top. Use a gentle scrubbing following the grain. Rinse the sponge, wipe clean the surface. Finish by wiping the wet surface using the soft towel.

For optimum appearance, use a stainless steel cleaner to remove smudges and fingerprints and follow up with a stainless steel polish to make the stove top shine. Polish should not be used daily. Once every couple of weeks should be adequate. Make sure to rub in the direction of the grain/brushed finish.

Holidays are coming a well maintained cooktop will be handy for cooking holiday food.

Rejoice Maids Training Day Team 3

Rejoice Maids Training Day Team 3

Last Saturday we had training day at Rejoice Maids office. Eluvia our Rejoice Maids trainer trained one of our Rejoice Maids team. Our team arrived at 8am with the big smile and great attitude. We discussed how to create a system that will be use by the whole Rejoice Maids cleaning crew in all of the houses we serve. We also worked on improving our bathroom cleaning process and bed sheet change procedure. We all agreed that our old fashion cleaning method should continue. But with the extra addition of disinfecting process towards the end as finishing touch.
Eluvia, Mayra and Paula did a step by step cleaning of the toilet. The procedure begins with warm water with few drops of dishwashing soap and a sponge. They finished the cleaning with Proctor and Gamble Spic-n-Span disinfectant cleaning solution.

Then we tackled the Rejoice Maids way of making the beds. We tried different variation before we were able to agreed in one process. It was one of those repetitive work we have to do in our client’s homes because most houses we serve have 3 to 6 bedrooms.It was nice seeing our team embracing the change in our process of housecleaning. They like the idea of continuous improvement and the continue training to be a better cleaning technician. As the owner of the company I am most proud!Rejoice Maids traning day #1

Rejoice Maids Cleaning Tip Today: Taming the Dust!

So I noticed a lot estate sale and garage sale in some neighborhood started early, I guess because the weather is getting cooler. I know fall is still a month away but I can already feel the difference in the temperature. Fall brings crisp fresh. I’m loving it!

We did a lot of move-out/move-in cleaning in the month of July. This month we are expecting less. We have more returning clients that puts their regular house cleaning on hold for the summer. Now they are calling back to resume their regular maintenance cleaning. We are more than happy to serve!

Rejoice Maids Cleaning Tip Today: Taming the Dust!

We all know dust bunnies is everywhere? And dusting is one of those never ending task. No matter how many times we do it, we will always have to do it again. Well, here is a few tricks to make the chore a bit faster and easier.

Go to Walmart or Target or if you want to buy a lot with less money go to Sam’s or BJ’s. Those stores sells microfiber cleaning cloths. It is mostly located in the car cleaning isle. Use the microfiber cleaning cloths to dust, polish furniture and remove cob-web. Most of the time you do not need to use cleaning solution. A little water sprinkle to cloths will make the cleaning a lot easier. But always remember when dusting always begins at the top. You can also use the microfiber to remove cob-web.

New Location Update :)

It was a long 2 weeks here at Rejoice Maids new location. As of today we are still fixing and improving our new office. Lots of things to do. Our parking lot needs TLC, the building façade needs power wash and fresh new paint, yard needs landscaping, interior need paint throughout. We have to change our carpet, and floor tiles have to be re-wax.

Our interior walls is being cut open to give way for windows. I personally do not like being confined so we are cutting walls to open the space. We have plenty of task to do before we create our training room/school. My vision is to do our house cleaning training in-house. I like to show a full bedroom cleaning, kitchen, family room, office, and full bathroom cleaning for practice. We have enough space we can divide to make up for each room. My staff and I are looking forward to our maid service cleaning training and improvement.

Despite all this activities, we still continue with our weekly Summer Lunch Program with Must Ministries. We pack 50 sacks of sandwiches each week. It is now in the 5th weeks. Yes, lots of work and challenges but I am happy. These are all positive activities. Until next time!

Rejoice Maids moved to new location 2015

It’s been hot lately. Actually, we have had record hot temperature. A little reminder from your cleaning technicians, please leave the air-on. It is not comfortable for our cleaning technician to clean your home while the temperature is high.

Update on our move to new location. Yesterday we rented a truck from U-Haul. It took three trips to get all of our belongings from Bell Parkway to 9910 Highway 92 Woodstock GA 30188. We had 6 men and 5 women total working together to make the moved possible. And we did. We are now totally relocated.

Now the real big job begins! I did not realized we have had accumulated so many cleaning tools, vacuums and supplies. My staff and I will have to create a new system of inventories, and processes. Our house cleaning service uses plenty of cleaning solutions, we have to re-organize our set-up in our new office.

Having said that, we are indeed growing. This is our 4th and hopefully God willing our permanent home for a long time. As an owner I believe in never stop learning.  Our maid service business is improving daily. With that I am always looking for improvement in customer service and our actual job, cleaning. I will always be a student.

To all of our clients and community, thank you for letting us served you!
