yearly maintenance

Good morning.
The weather has been holding steady in the low 30's for the past week, and no snow for over a week now. That's nice.
I've been very busy at work. Not with customers so much as my annual January cleaning. Besides the regular cleaning I do every Sunday, once a year I do 'extra' cleaning. I'm now working on cleaning the entire purple grid that hangs above our heads.

As you can see in this pic from Christmas, there are no ceiling tiles in the grid work. It is open to the roof. Everything above the grid was painted black. The air ducts, wires, cables, roof beams, everything. It gives the small Salon the illusion of being bigger. But that grid work is a terrible dust catcher. So once a year, I get the ladder out, and one by one, wipe off each section. It will probably take me a week, going in an hour early each day. And see the chrome on the chairs that hold the backs and arm rests? They get coated with hair spray and it takes hot soapy water to get them clean and shiny again. So now you know why I don't clean the house as often as I should. I 'have' to have the Salon looking good. My house? Not so much. And 2 more days of work before my weekend begins, so I'll catch you later!

  1. You know that I've been a longtime reader when I remember you doing your annual purple grid cleaning in years past.
