After a construction project in your home.
After a high-traffic season in your home (such as holidays or grandkids coming to visit).

When pet dander is a problem.
One of the greatest motivators for cleaning a house is when guests are coming over. It seems it is so common that our kids will say, “Who’s coming over?” when we tell them to go clean their rooms.
There are different levels of clean. Sometimes we don’t get too far in a cleaning project because we get held up on one of the chores. Here’s our cleanup list that can help you focus to the end:
1. Take out your garbage, picking up any visible signs of garbage from the floor or counters on your way out.
2. Clean the bathroom—wipe down sink, bathtub, then toilet. Then wash up the mirrors and mop the floor on your way out.
3. Mop other floors, like the kitchen. Vacuum if you have time.
4. Pick up those papers like mail and bills in the kitchen or living rooms. If you are in a hurry, just organize and tidy them up—you might find something to throw away. If you’re not in a hurry, go ahead and respond to them and file if needed.
5. Wash the mirrors or windows around the house.
As you're cleaning your home in preparation for holiday parties, overnight guests, and the midnight appearance of Mr. Santa Claus, himself, you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed. As one mess is cleaned up, another appears, and then on top of that, it's time to wrap some gifts for the office gift exchange! Another mess!
How to keep your sanity (and keep your house clean) during the holidays:
The 3S Plan: Stations, Scheduling, Supplies!
You've done this before, you have a pretty good idea of what the holidays entails. Last-minute gifting, out of town visitors, extravagant appetizers, somebody's gonna get sick, and excessive pine needles.
Prepare Stations around your home that will assist in these various projects and messes. It is easier for kids and guests (and YOU) to clean up if everything is ready.
Many times when we think about cleaning our homes, we get so overwhelmed because we think it will take hours. Just 20 minutes a day will at least get all the clutter picked up off the floors and counters! Try working 20 minutes a day of cleaning into the schedule. If you use an Advent Calendar or read Christmas stories before bed with the kids, include them on the 20 minutes of cleaning and then reward them with the holiday tradition. Set a timer and turn up the Christmas tunes!
Make it easy to clean up by making supplies readily available. Put extra trash bins throughout the house (next to the tree), along with mini brooms and wash cloths. Pick out a cinnamon-scented cleaning solution to give your home a holiday feel!
We are available to play Santa Claus this season and spread your home with holiday cheer and cleanliness! Please contact Tropical Carpet & Tile Cleaning to schedule pre and post-holiday clean-up!

Julio and Maria were great! I recently moved out of Reno and had to find someone to take over my apartment, so I wanted to make sure it was cleaned up and good as new before they moved in. After calling a few places and being underwhelmed with what they had to offer, I went with Tropical Carpet and they did an awesome job. They were very responsive, which was important because I wasn't around to see the apartment after they cleaned it. The new tenant went to inspect it and said it looked great, and passed his "USMC White Glove Inspection". I don't think you can get a better recommendation than that.
Solid work on cleaning carpets, but what I LOVE is their house cleaning services. The house cleaners work in tandem with the carpet cleaners, to make sure everything is tip-top by the time they're done. They work with smiles on their faces, and with an attention to detail that, well honestly, I didn't know my house had. --Gertie, Reno, NV 3-23-14
