We're more than just a house cleaning & maid service. Serving Coquitlam, Port Moody, Port Coquitlam and all of the Greater Vancouver area.


  HOUSECLEANING TIPS…is your toilet REALLY clean?
Spic ‘n Span Housecleaning Services has been cleaning in the Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody areas successfully for over 6 years.
  We have come to recognize not only the independent needs of each home clean, but also the viewpoint of doing a really good housecleaning job.
  For example, the only way to really do a good job cleaning a bathtub is by actually GETTING IN the tub.  It’s true…leaning and swiping just won’t do a good job.
Only by putting yourself in the area will allow you to see and feel the cleaning surface from a proper perspective. This is so important in one of the aspects of housecleaning.
  In saying that the same theory applies to cleaning a toilet and the surrounding area. You certainly are not going to get INSIDE a toilet but it just is not efficient or effective to lean over the toilet to the back and try to clean baseboards and pipes.
  You really have to SQUAT, yes I said it, to do a proper job!  A truly great job of cleaning  the toilet can be seen through the eyes of someone who has stomach flu…where every part of the commode is visible.
  On the other hand (or backend) a bathtub clean is truly appreciated from the perspective of the other end of the flu.  The insides are seen clearly as well as the outside and design edges.  Baseboards are clearly seen and edge around tub.
  So next time you find yourself in either position while suffering the flu…ask yourself if your housecleaning service is doing a REALLY detailed job.As you can see, housecleaning is more than a Swiffer and a swipe.  Any GOOD housecleaning job requires […]

House Cleaning tips ‘n tricks! Spic ‘n Span House Cleaning

House Cleaning Tips
  So Uncle Harry sloshed some red wine while extravagantly recounting his fishing story.
Don’t worry!  Keep a bottle of cheap white wine in the fridge for such occasions.  Soak the red wine spill and watch.  Like magic the stain should bubble and turn pick.  Let sit for 10 minutes and blot dry.
Included in house cleaning chores we know that the kitchen is one of the highest priority rooms to clean.
Often times the microwave is the most used appliance and can get pretty gruesome.
  Don’t worry!  Dried on gunk is easily removed by putting a small bowl of vinegar inside and set your microwave on high for 3 minutes.  Goo is loosened and easily wiped away.
If you’re not a fan of the smell of vinegar lemon juice can be used instead.
  Putting a whole lemon in your microwave will give the same result, just remember to pierce the lemon  a few times first so it doesn’t explode.
That WOULD be a mess!
Do you like lemon in your tea?  Well you can also use that lemon to remove tea stains.
  That’s right!  Halve a lemon and gently rub over the stained area.  Sprinkle some salt and gently rub the fabric together.  Let sit for 10 minutes then wash.
Here’s one for those with little kiddies or very messy men.
  Greasy fingerprints on walls or wallpaper?  An easy fix for this job without tainting the paint is this.
Simply wipe down the wall (paper) with a slice of white bread.  The bread acts like a sponge and soaks up the grease.
  Well, there’s one good reason to reach for the wonder bread!
Shaving cream seems to be a constant in men’s bathrooms these days.
  Can’t […]

Place a brown paper bag on top.
Place an iron set on high and iron it out.

The wax will melt and be absorbed into the bag. Have a look at the helpful video below.
