HOW WE CLEAN STOVE TOPS AT WINSTON SALEM CLEANING SERVICE
Our method at Winston Salem Cleaning Service is designed to save time & effort, while maintaining maximum effectiveness.
FIRST REMOVE LOOSE FOOD & DEBRIS FROM YOUR STOVE TOP'S SURFACE
The ﬁrst cleaning step is to get a microﬁber towel wet with only water. Wipe the stove top, collecting all the loose food and debris you can. Always make sure the stove top is off and cool to touch.
THEN REMOVE CRUSTY STUCK ON FOOD & HEAVY SOILS
Add a nice finishing touch by applying polish to your stove top . Use a small amount of the cook-top cleaner and wipe evenly with a damp microﬁber cloth. This polish will make the surface shine. We like to use Magic Cooktop Cleaner & Polish.Do not rinse, but dry with a clean microﬁber buﬃng towel or glass towel.
WHY WE DO IT THIS WAY
By spraying the dish soap on the cook-top surface, you break down grease, and provide a slippery surface to prevent the razor blade from scratching. Dish soap is safe, eﬀective and aﬀordable. Additionally, you can adjust the dilution ratio for diﬀerent circumstances. Finishing everything with a plain water rinse removes excess chemical, reduces streaks, and leaves the best shine. Experiment with both the dry Buﬀ™ towel and the Lightweight Microfiber Glass Towel to see what works best in your location. The Buff™ Microfiber Towels are all purpose towels, meaning they are great for any surface and any application (drying, cleaning, polishing, etc.). The microfiber glass towels are more specific for drying, and work extremely well as a glass stove top cleaner. Happy Cleaning!
HOW WE DO IT AT MAID BY DESIGN
Since the kitchen can be one of the most time-consuming areas of a house, we check it first to see how much grease and food spatters we must deal with.
LOOSENING UP FOOD & GREASE ON YOUR STOVE TOP SURFACE, GRATES, & BURNERS
Start by pretreating the top and burners of the stove. We spray a degreaser and let dwell. For greasy and food encrusted grates we soak in the sink with hot water and dish soap, while we clean bathrooms and most of the kitchen.
REMOVING HARD STUCK ON FOOD
There is nothing more important than saving our customers money and our technicians time and wear and tear on their bodies. We want to get and give the best bang for the buck. Soaking keeps scrubbing and scraping to a minimum. Using the right tools cuts time. Knowing the chemicals, you use and how they work is extremely important on today's high end surfaces.
