On the other hand, there are vacationers who want the ultimate vacation experience but enjoy it most in vacation rental properties. With this type of vacation experience, there is no room service or spa facilities (typically) like hotels provide, but people still enjoy it more than hotels.

Why?

Because it gives vacationers that “home away from home” experience. Yes, people want the luxury of not lifting a finger while on vacation but being able to stay in a property that’s nice with all the makings of home, without it being their actual home, is still a huge selling point to lots of travelers. That reason alone is why so many people are getting their feet wet in real estate investing.

This article identifies the 10 areas that are the most important to keep clean in the house and why from a professional house cleaning company in Louisville called Super Cleaning.

Sink

Your sink sees a lot of use every day. All the washing up and rinsing off that goes on every day in your sink means that your sink could be the dirtiest spot in your home.  Your sink could be harboring more germs than your toilet.

Instead, you need to ask around, interview contractors on the phone and in person, get references and check them, check licensing, verify there are no complaints lodged against the contractor, and that’s all before you get quotes.
