Cleaning Tip for June 2011

The summer heat is here, even though the calendar is still reading “Spring.” Homes and businesses are closing up the windows in favor of the a/c unit, and air quality concerns get moved to the forefront. I offer two tips for improving the quality of the air you breathe:

1. Use green cleaners instead of chemical-based ones:

Baking soda is a great non-abrasive cleanser for sinks & counters.

Vinegar is excellent for glass and most metal surfaces.

Borax deodorizes garbage pails and disposals, and it cleans & whitens walls and floors.

MonoFoil keeps your areas sanitized for long periods of time after cleaning, with no harmful fumes.

2. Treat your filters and clean your heat pump coil:

Odors begin emanating from the a/c unit. This is called “dirty sock syndrome” by some, and it is caused by mold and mildew building up on your heat pump coil. We recommend cleaning your heat pump and treating it with MonoFoil to prevent the return of the mold and mildew. You will also want to treat your filters with MonoFoil, as dust and allergens get to be a big problem during the summer months.
