Dust radiators, woodwork, pictures and mirrors. Wipe window sills, and brush shades and blinds. Clean kitchen range burners. Wipe the refrigerator and kitchen cabinet fronts. Polish metal surfaces.
Monthly: Do one or more of the following special jobs in several rooms on the same day: vacuum and where applicable brush curtains and draperies. Wipe wood trim and where needed wipe walls and around doorknobs. Wash windows. Wash and if necessary wax the kitchen floor. Polish wood furniture and vacuum upholstered furniture, paying special attention to cleaning under cushions and in crevices between the back of the cushion support. To prolong life, turn over mattresses, end to end and side to side. This will help equalize the wear. In hot water clean air conditioner filters according to manufacturer’s recommendations.
