How to Clean Drains: What You Need to Know

How to clean drains: What you need to know


Clean your drains and gutters this weekend to keep water flowing and prevent blockages and flooding.

With the fall season in full swing, drains quickly become clogged with fallen branches, leaves and debris that can quickly pile up and stop water flowing properly. The result: Lots of flooding and potentially broken gutters and drain pipes that can be costly to replace. As the old adage goes: prevention is better than cure!

Getting Properly Outfitted

Let's face it, cleaning drains is a mucky job. It's a good idea to arm yourself with some boots, a rain jacket and some latex gloves for protection. You may also wish to use a bucket or tarpaulin to collect all the loose debris.

Guide to Cleaning Your Drains

  • Sweep or scoop away any loose leaves and dirt from drain covers and the edges of paths and roads.
  • Use a long piece of pipe, a stiff, thin brush, or a wooden tree branch to reach into the drain or gutter and draw out any clogged sections. If cleaning a gutter, you can also take the sections apart and clean them individually.
  • Optional: Mix a little vinegar with some boiling water and pour down the drainpipe.
  • Take a hose and spray thoroughly to push out any remaining leaves and get the water flowing again.
  • Make sure to remove all debris from the end of the drainpipe or gutter in order to prevent a buildup of leaves and branches.

Taking a Closer Look

We recommend also using this opportunity to inspect the condition of your drainpipes and gutters. Look for any cracks, leaks and/or rust that indicate your drains need some further attention.

Happy Thanksgiving!


Messy Kitchen Cleaning Tips

There’s no doubt about it, Thanksgiving is a busy time of year. Between all the cooking, parties and travelling, your home (and especially your kitchen) can quickly turn into a mess. Follow our Thanksgiving cleaning tips to keep your kitchen organized and sparkling for the holiday!

1) Organize Your Storage 

Clean out the cabinets and pantry, wiping down the shelves and cleaning all your pots, pans and other cooking equipment. Rearrange as necessary.

2) Clear Up Counters

Pack away any rarely-used small appliances from the counter top. The extra space will give you more room for cooking and de-clutter your kitchen.

3) Toss Old Food

Clean out the refrigerator and freezer, throwing away expired items and organizing the rest. By doing this, you will know where everything is when you need it, as well as free up space for new groceries.

4) Polish Appliances

Scrub and polish your appliances such as oven, range, microwave etc. Wipe down stainless steel areas using a Microfiber Cloth and gentle product (such as our SuperScrub) to prevent scratching.

5) Spray, Wipe, Repeat

Spray surfaces regularly. This might seem obvious, but a quick spray and wipe every time you cook will prevent things from getting out of control and save you from having to do a big clean up at the end.

Get Your Home Back to New










As summer comes to an end, many of us are cleaning, organizing and packing for a move. Whether it be for college, a new job or just a change of scenery, below are some tips to help you get your home all clean and shiny before you say goodbye.

Too busy with packing? Let AspenClean do the work with our Eco-Friendly Move Out Cleaning Service and give yourself one less thing to worry about! 


1) Dust, Dust, Dust!
A surprising amount of dust can build up in a home, especially in those out-of-reach and hidden spots. Remember to start work from the top down, using a vacuum to collect dust from high areas. Microfiber Cloths are great for use in other parts of the house as they trap dust, instead of pushing it around. An added bonus – these cloths can be thrown into the washer and dryer and re-used for years!

2) Get In Cabinets & Closets
Moving is a great time to give all cabinets and closets in your home a thorough wipe down both inside and out. Make sure to get into the corners to clean away any dust or grime. If you have a garage, remember to clean the shelving there as well. Our All-Purpose Cleaner infused with organic grapefruit and lavender essential oils is great for these jobs.

3) Attend to the Floors
If you have hardwood or laminate flooring, give it a good wash making sure to get into all corners and around or under any furniture. Our All-in-One Concentrate is very useful for this as you can dilute it, creating the cleaning strength you need for your floors. If your home has carpet, consider having a natural steam cleaning done to get it back to new without those harsh chemicals!

4) Wash the Windows
Windows should be cleaned using non-toxic Glass Cleaner and a Glass Microfiber Cloth to ensure a steak-free shine. If possible, also clean the outside of your windows to make them crystal clear. Don’t forget to dust the blinds, and pay special attention to the window sills and tracks, as these can become very grimy over time.

5) Check Baseboards & Walls
Ensure that the baseboards in your home have been wiped of all dust and dirt. Also check the walls and try to remove any marks or stains. Our all-natural SuperScrub Powder is infused with organic tea tree essential oil, which can help to get those hard-to-clean areas spotless, without leaving any scratches. 

6) Make the Kitchen Shine
In addition to cleaning all surfaces, remember to give the outside and inside of your appliances a good wipe down. AspenClean’s Kitchen Cleaner makes it easy to get rid of any greasy build up inside of your microwave, fridge and oven. Afterwards, your kitchen will smell lovely and fresh from the organic Grapefruit and Bergamot essentials oils. Best of all, you won’t have to worry about any chemical residues left behind!

7) Scrub That Tub
Make sure to scrub your bathtub and/or shower as well as the sink, where limescale can build up over time. Start from the top-down, and get into all corners and crevices. Use our Bathroom Cleaner and Bathroom Microfiber Cloth to efficiently tackle these areas, and combine with our SuperScrub Powder for hard to clean residue.

The Changing Roles of Modern Dads

Gender Doesn't Define Domestic Destiny

The idea that the average father spends only 20 minutes a day with his children has been exposed as a myth; in the past 25 years modern family structures have shifted, blurring the line between the roles of mothers and fathers. With more mothers working outside the home, fathers are now included in most aspects of child care including changing diapers, taking the kids to school and even household cleaning. The rising average age of parents, same-sex couples and adoption of children has also contributed to changes in traditional family roles. 

“What we’re actually seeing now is a different kind of equality that comes out of complementarity and a more complex set of negotiations based on people’s different circumstances.” Kerry Daly, professor and chair of the University of Guelph’s Family Relations department

Off-shifting & the Efficient Division of Labour

Off-shifting is a popular new trend in Canadian families where mothers and fathers stagger their work time. This allows at least one parent to be at home with the kids, while both can contribute to the household income. This is one of many factors contributing to the increasing number of men taking on the role of the stay-at-home dad or managing tasks traditionally reserved for mothers, such as doing the grocery shopping each week. 

“If you don’t get more efficient in the division of labour, you’re not going to make it as a couple. You’re going to spend all your time fighting over who’s doing what.” Ann Douglas, writer and a mother of four from Peterborough, Ontario 

The Benefits of an Involved Father

Studies which have looked at long-term development in children have found that those with involved fathers tend to do better in school, are more empathetic and are less likely to engage in violence.  In addition, having an involved father (the primary caregiver or not) results in effective teamwork and mutual respect between mothers and fathers, according to Michael Lamb of the National Institute for Child Health and Human Development in Bethesda, Maryland. Men & women who are able to share their parenting experiences with each other find support, and are able to make important decisions together based on their own perspectives and values.

“If we try to judge the care that fathers give by the standards used to study mothers and women, we miss some of the creative ways that fathers are caring for children.” - Andrea Doucet, author of 'Do Men Mother?'

Modern Father Facts

  • The average age of fathers is rising: The average age of fathers now exceeds 40
  • Work-family balance is a challenge for many fathers: Whether they are on their own or in a two-parent family, the vast majority of fathers in Canada are employed. 
  • Men don't have to be husbands to be fathers: Today, many children either are born outside of marriage or experience the divorce of their parents while they are still young. Consequently, there are a growing number of men entering unions that include children from a partner's previous relationship.


Greening Your Pet Care

Pets are a part of our families and we work hard to take good care of them. But did you know the cleaning products we use in our homes may be severely damaging their health? In 2009, the ASPCA’s Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) handled more than 140,000 cases of pets exposed to toxic substances, many of which included everyday household products.

Household Dangers: Why is it important for pet owners to use pet-friendly cleaners in your home?

Pets groom themselves with their mouths, so residues from cleaning products and other environmental toxins end up in their skin, coat, eyes, nose and throat. Furthermore, their feet pads are sensitive and will absorb the chemicals on the floors and surfaces they walk on. Avoiding harsh chemical cleaners is one of the best ways to protect your pet's health; discussed below are common chemicals to avoid. 

Glycol Ethers
Glycol ethers are found in many cleaning products that are not pet safe including glass cleaners, carpet cleaners and spot removers. It has been linked to anemia, lung damage and kidney damage in people and pets.

Used for fragrance in household cleaners and deodorizers, cosmetics, packaging, toys, food and many other products, phthalates are known hormone-disruptors. Since hormones control so much more than just reproduction in your pet’s system (and yours), phthalates have been linked to indirect symptoms such as weight gain, cancers and developmental delays.

Used in many de-greasers for ovens, glass and stainless steel, ammonia has a very high VOC, burns mucous membranes and contributes to asthma. If it is mixed with bleach, it creates a poisonous gas which can be deadly to small pets.

Chlorine is a toxic respiratory irritant that can damage pets’ skin, eyes or other membranes. It can be found in all-purpose cleaners, automatic dishwashing detergents, tile scrubs, disinfecting wipes, toilet-bowl cleaners, laundry detergents and mildew removers. Chlorine is heavier than air and lands in low-lying areas where pets live. 

Greening Your Pet Care by Darcy Matheson

Greening Your Pet Care is the first book by Darcy Matheson - pet care expert, television journalist and dog blogger from Vancouver, Canada. The book is a comprehensive guide for safe, green and sustainable pet care; household safety, vet care, nutrition and outdoor activities are just some of the topics discussed. It's the new must-have for environmentally conscious pet owners.

AspenClean is proud to be featured in the book's Greening Your Home section, discussing the benefits of eco-friendly and pet safe cleaning products. 

"With our pets spending much of their time on our floors and furniture, it's extra important to avoid using chemicals that could potentially hurt them...animals have a much higher likelihood of ingesting products that can make them sick, and because of their small size and faster metabolism they can be poisoned by a very small amount of toxins." 
- Darcy Matheson 


This Mother's Day, Give Mom the Gift of Time!

The average Canadian spends 17 hours per week cleaning....Moms, much more! 
Mothers are the heart of the household, constantly working to maintain a great home environment for their families. Did you know a mother’s average morning involves remembering 26 tasks, while completing at least 12 major jobs through the day? These major jobs include doing the school run, organizing meals and managing the domestic chores, such as home cleaning. In general, working women spend almost twice as much time as men on household chores and caring for children (Bureau of Labor Statistics). 
In good news, the past few decades have shown major changes! There has been a sharp rise in father's staying at home with the children, or sharing the chores commonly left for their wives. In Canada in 2011, 12% of fathers stayed home with the children while mothers earned an income, up from just 1% in 1976 (Statistics Canada). This shift shows how traditional family structures are being reshaped, as well as gender norms. 

The Gift of Time: The best gift is a day off! 
Although household work is starting to be divided among family members, we believe mothers still deserve a day off from worrying about cleaning. If you know a mother who would appreciate a sparkly-clean home, give her the gift of time this Mother's Day and let us do the work!
AspenClean's premium home cleaning gift certificates make a fantastic gift! These can be ordered over the phone or through our website, and are delivered by email within 24 hours. Please note, we currently provide cleaning services in Vancouver, Calgary, and Toronto.

AspenClean Among Top-Rated EWG Products

About EWG

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment. Their research shows that the cleaning industry still has a long way to go to ensure that the cleaning products we use are safe. Many brands make it difficult, if not impossible, for consumers to learn whether a product contains chemicals that can cause reproductive problems, exacerbate asthma, burn or irritate your skin or harm the environment. 

Their analysis revealed that:

  • Almost three-fourths of common cleaners contain ingredients that may have worrisome effects on respiratory health.
  • More than one-fourth received scores indicating moderate to high health concerns because they contain ingredients or possible impurities that have been linked to increased cancer risk.
  • One-fifth of products got scores indicating moderate to high health concern because they have ingredients associated with developmental, endocrine or reproductive harm.
  • Almost half of the products were rated “poor” on disclosure because their ingredients are not adequately listed on product labels and company websites.

The AspenClean Difference

The EWG studied 237 bathroom cleaners to assess their safety. Only 4% received an “A”, more than 50% of the cleaners received an “F” rating. Many of these products contained chemical ingredients with proven side effects, including everything from skin irritation to cancer. We are proud to say that every single AspenClean product was deemed “A-level”. 

Top-Rated: AspenClean's Bathroom Cleaner, Glass Cleaner, Dish Soap & All-in-One Concentrate 

In addition to presenting AspenClean with their best rating, the EWG has added our Bathroom Cleaner, Glass Cleaner, Dish Soap and All-in-One Concentrate to their select list of "top-rated" products. We value and appreciate the EWG's continued support of AspenClean products in their mission to promote human health and the environment! Learn more about our "top-rated" products below:

The Biggest Myth About Green Cleaning Products

Here's a question we ask ourselves a lot at AspenClean: why don't more people use green cleaning products?

A decade ago, there was an easy answer: alternatives simply weren't available. Or they were expensive. Or they simply didn't work.

Now, of course, everything has changed. Green cleaning products are everywhere, and rarely cost significantly more than their toxic alternatives. (You can see how affordable our products are in the AspenClean shop).

But one lingering problem remains- and it's the biggest myth AspenClean has been working to overcome. The popular perception is that green cleaning products don't work.

The idea is that you need corrosive, toxic chemicals in order to deal with the messes and stains of everyday life. Paradoxically, people think that hazardous chemicals are a necessity in order to make your air "fresh."

Strange- to us, at least. But the myth persists- that all-natural cleaners are featherweights, and can't hold their own.

We are working to change that. We came up with a full, comprehensive line of cleaning products to tackle every spill and mess in your home- even the tough ones. And we put those products to the test everyday with our residential cleaning services.

AspenClean home-cleaning has always been a premium service- and our customers expect exceptional results.

But we trust our products. And so we only equip our teams with AspenClean all-natural cleaners. The results speak for themselves. AspenClean continues to get fantastic reviews in Vancouver, Calgary, and Toronto- definitive proof that green is all you need.

But a picture is worth a thousand words. That's why we were thrilled when an AspenClean customer named Carla sent us the following images of her experience cleaning old stained copper pots. For this job, Carla trusted AspenClean all-natural dish soap. Take a look:

A job well-done by Carla. And she did it without any exposure to harmful chemicals, and without causing damage to the environment.

That's the win-win-win of green cleaning products.
