Hello! My name is Gerald and I own a large office block which is located in downtown Sydney. I am a very busy businessman so I spend a lot of time in my company offices on the telephone and having meetings. Last year, I noticed that the place was getting a bit untidy and I didn't want my staff to waste time cleaning the place up when they could be making more money for the company. I asked around and found a great cleaning company who now visit my office block twice a week to make sure it is super clean. My staff are much happier and so am I. This blog details the benefits of calling in a professional cleaner.
If you plan on owning a boat, you would do well to understand how to keep it maintained properly. A few minutes of regular upkeep and maintenance can reduce the risk of the engine breaking down prematurely, stranding you on the water, and leading to more expensive repair bills down the road. Keeping the boat clean will also make it more comfortable to operate, and will help reduce wear and tear on the boat's interior and the hull. Note a few tips on how to keep a boat clean so you know your vessel is always ready for operation.
It's good to give your boat's hull a good rinse before you scrub it, so you can remove saltwater, seaweed that may clinging to the bottom, motor oil, and the like. Scrubbing your boat while it's still covered in all this debris can cause damage to the boat's body, and may scratch or etch it permanently. It can also make it harder to remove that dirt and grime.
Never use dish soap on your boat's hull, as it may be too abrasive and harsh for a metal or vinyl surface. Washing your boat on a warm, sunny day also increases the chance that dish soap will dry on the boat's hull, leaving behind a film that is difficult to wash away. Always use a boat soap in particular for cleaning your vessel, and if you use your boat in saltwater, choose a cleanser that will remove salt as well.
If your boat has metal features, such as a rail or frame for a windscreen, use a metal polish on these pieces. Glass cleaner will usually leave behind streaks and not be strong enough to actually clean the metal, or to keep it polished and shiny. Avoid abrasive rags and items like scrubbing pads on these surfaces, as they can easily scratch and etch any type of metal.
If the boat has a windscreen, rinse it first before cleaning it to remove abrasive debris and any salt that may be built up on its surface. A standard glass cleaner is typically sufficient, along with a soft cloth that will polish the window and not scratch it. You might also consider adding a water repellent to the front of the windscreen, to help repel more water while the boat is in motion, along with dirt, dust, insects, and the like. This can make cleaning the glass much easier every time you use the boat.
