I know, by now you are all bored with my spring cleaning soap box. I have just one more then I promise I am done for a little while.
I am listing a few things below that should be done on a regular basis. If they have not been done in a while, no time like now right? If left too long some of these things can encourage nasties and what we at OMC call undocumented workers (BUGS- of all kinds) I know, I said it. From dust mites and mold to mildew and the like.
You should use your vacuum on the top of the mattress every time you change your sheets to suck up those dust mites.
Twice a year you should vacuum the entire mattress
Four times a year your mattress should be turned and or flipped.
Once a week wipe down the vent with a damp cloth
Twice a year remove the vent and wash it in the sink with warm soapy water
Vacuum the coils behind and underneath the appliance once a month
Empty and clean drip pans every month or two. Clean them with a diluted bleach solution to prevent fungus
These and other tips can be found in the February/March issue of Ready Made Magazine.
Remember, if you are looking for someone to do these tasks, or even remind you that it needs to be done, call us and we can help get you started!

We see it time and again. Too much to do and not enough time. When was the last time you actually had a free weekend to read a book or hang out by the pool w/o stressing over dinner, cleaning and the burning need to visit your mother?
It is a way of life these days. Here at OHMISS we would like to help you take some of that time back. But busy people rarely know where to start. That is where a time study comes in. Our favorite so far is the one on MSN it is long and detailed but gives you a very good picture. Click hereto take it. Or hereto read our post on it.
We just found one on fine living that is shorter and can help in a pinch. Click here to visit it.
After you take the quiz (or quizzes) let us know what your big time sappers are. Maybe we can help find you that yard service, mobile detailer or run a few errands for you…
OHMISS Concierge is very excited to announce our new web page. We will slowly be bringing over posts from the old blog over the next few months. If you want to visit an old post please go to http://blog.ohmissconciergeinc.com/
