Cleaning Kitchen Checklist

Cleaning Kitchen Checklist

The kitchen is a special place for every woman. It is also probably the one room that requires a lot of cleaning to keep it comfortable and fresh. We have prepared for you some ideas how to get organised and follow the cleaning activities to help you keep your kitchen clean and healthy place.

What You Need to Do to Clean the Kitchen

The cleaning in the kitchen could be separated by the different surfaces and areas that need to be treated. You may clean the different categories each day.

Large appliances

This is probably the hardest part of the kitchen cleaning – to get the cooktop, oven, vent hood and the refrigerator cleaned. For every appliance you need a special cleaning product. The problem is that you keep and cook your food in those appliances and we would recommend avoiding harsh chemicals, as they are rarely completely cleaned. Check for some homemade cleaning solutions that could clean the oil from the cooktop and the oven. The refrigerator could be cleaned with water and vinegar mixture. For the vent hood you may use commercial cleaner as it is not in direct contact with the food.

Surfaces

There are many different surfaces around the kitchen and different materials. You need to use appropriate cleaning product for every surface to avoid damaging it. Make sure you clean the countertops and backsplashes, cabinets, faucets and sinks, cutting boards, dishwasher and floors.

Small appliances

The small appliances also need eco cleaning as you are using them daily to prepare your food. Find appropriate green cleaning products for the toaster, knives, microwave, coffeemaker, kettle, coffee and spice grinder, stand mixer, wooden utensils and garbage can.

Windows

The windows in the kitchen will need to get cleaned more often that the windows in the other rooms because of the temperature condense. After cleaning the windows make sure you clean the draperies also. See below how to take care of the fabrics in the kitchen.

Fabrics

You will have different types of fabrics in your kitchen – draperies, furniture upholstery, and carpets. The fabrics may get harsh stains from food and beverages. You need to use appropriate cleaning products to remove the stains and keep the fabrics clean and fresh. We would also recommend using professional cleaning services for the household fabrics at least twice a year.

This will ensure your carpets, upholstered furniture and draperies are perfectly clean and all the unpleasant kitchen stains are removed.

Avoid Higher Computer Consultant Costs by Using 11 Point Checklist

Avoid Higher Computer Consultant Costs by Using 11 Point Checklist

How well your computer consultant understands your business computer requirements determine your total computer consulting costs by minimizing midstream changes, corrections and additions. Things not fully clarified can get altered or totally omitted, requiring more costly labor to correct or redesign.

Don’t leave it to chance. Here is a checklist that covers the key areas to clarify for yourself and your computer consultant before discussion starts:

A list of the things you need to keep track of in your database and how they relate to each other is a good start but here is a more complete list to make sure nothing is falls between the cracks between you and your computer consultant.

1. What are your major categories of data and what specific data is stored under each category. Listing out your various business processes, and the steps required to accomplish them will help answer this.

2. How will want to filter your data to get a just what you need for a report or a screen view.

3. Any examples of reports or other output you may need or are currently using. (Microsoft Word can be used to illustrate a report design.)

4. Define what data validation or business rules are needed during data entry.

5. Any special requirements involving linking to or importing data from data sources outside of your business software.

6. Any financial accounting requirements or other legal / liability issues requiring additional data storage and output.

7. What kind of hardware system exists and is anyone supporting this.

8. Will data access require any remote access permissions?

9. The level of security access required for various areas of data viewing and editing among the individuals given permissions.

10.

Current data entry media and formats currently being used if any exist.

11. Any data migration requirements from existing data sources, such as available formats form these sources

I can tell you that a consultant’s time might not always be billable on that first consultation, but he or she will appreciate the business owner who is prepared and can answer these basic questions.

I have found that it’s rare that a business owner is sufficiently prepared to start a discussion in this area unless these points have been thought out.

If you have had any experiences with computer business consultants that went sour or did not meet expectations, your comments and lessons learned are welcome. We all need to learn more about this vital area and that includes me.
