About Our Laundry Room Cleaning Services

The paradox of the laundry room is that the room meant for washing linens rarely gets the cleaning attention it deserves. It’s our mission to stop the neglect! Because washing clothes in a dirty and dusty laundry room is like washing a floor with a dirty mop. The laundry room is included as part of our house cleaning service.

Laundry Room Cleaning Tips

Keeping your laundry room clean and organized makes staying on top of the seemingly endless pile of dirty clothes less stressful. Use these laundry room cleaning tips to streamline your laundry room duties!

  • If you have a high-efficiency (HE) machine, only use HE detergent to reduce soap-scum buildup.
  • Eyeballing the detergent is quick and easy, but it’s also a waste. Use a measuring cup to avoid waste and excessive suds. After all, excessive suds often lead to excessive residue.
  • If you have a front-loading machine, keep the door cracked after a load to allow the wash drum to dry out.
  • Use different hampers for whites, colors and delicates to avoid laundry mishaps and speed up the folding.
  • Keep a dedicated trash bin for dryer lint as a reminder to always empty it before each load.
