CLEANING CEILING FANS

Dust ceiling-fan blades with an old pillowcase to contain particles and grimy buildup. Stand on a step stool and drape the case over a blade. Pressing both hands against it, slowly slide the case off. Repeat for each blade, then launder the case.

The Face Behind Scrub Housekeeping Company

Meet Victoria Belman, she is the owner of Scrub Housekeeping Company. A native of the country of Colombia, Victoria earned her bachelor’s degree from Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano in 2001. Soon after college, Victoria used her degree in architecture to land a job with Consultores y Consturores Plus LTDA in Bogota. After three years designing and constructing public buildings in and around the capital city, Victoria moved on to Compass Group Services, the world’s leading provider of support services. At Compass Group, Victoria was a key account manager in charge of providing support services such as cleaning, reception services, and building maintenance to large corporations such as Phizer, Microsoft, and Comcel International. During her two-year stay at Compass Group, Victoria developed the organizational and managerial skills necessary to run large-scale operations in the support service arena. After living 35 years in her beloved Colombia, Victoria thought it was time for a change in scenery and moved to Long Beach, California, where she began to build a family with her husband and daughter Lucia. Once establishing herself in her new home, Victoria got back to work. Using her experience at Compass Group, Victoria created a small, independent, and local home cleaning business called Scrub Housekeeping Company. In short time, her home cleaning company grew to five employees providing home and office services to over a dozen clients throughout the Long Beach area. When doing business with Scrub, you’ll find Victoria not only to be motivated, dedicated, and professional, but reliable, personable, and trustworthy, making your experience safe, refreshing, and clean.

NO JOKING MATTER

We agree with you Phyliss, cleaning is no joke!  Phyliss Diller was a groundbreaking stand-up comic—one of the first woman comics to become a household-name in the U.S. She paved the way for Joan Rivers, Roseanne Barr, and Ellen Degeneres, among others, who credit her influence (wikipedia).

NEW LIFE FOR COOKWARE

Combine some baking soda and hydrogen peroxide and you’ve got a “miracle mixture” that can turn old pots and pans, cookie sheets, and cooking utensils from grimy to shiny.
If you soak it for a few hours in this mixture, you don’t even have to scrub it in.

Unclog Showerheads

If a showerhead becomes clogged with mineral deposits, fill a plastic bag with undiluted white vinegar and place the bag over the head so it is submerged; secure and seal the bag with a rubber band. Soak overnight and then scrub the face with a toothbrush.
