Why Are Your Bathroom Walls Dripping and Sweating and How To Clean Them!

Why Are My Bathroom Walls Sweating After A Shower?

After posting about water seeping and dripping on bathroom walls on our Weekly Home Tips Instagram Feed (@weeklyhometips) and it went viral with a flood of questions, I knew I had to share more about what I know and what a paint pro shared with me too.

Now let’s clarify here because bathroom wall drips happen in a few ways…

1. One is literally getting out of the shower and drying off. Flinging hair and water randomly just tends to happen. You usually see this at the halfway area of the walls in the bathroom.

2. However, the issue most people are boggled with is the drips on your wall that usually start at the top of the wall and drip down.

Immediately people begin to assume that this mainly happens after a steamy hot shower in a not so well ventilated space. Now, this is part of the issue but not the whole issue.

What Are Those Drips on the Bathroom Walls?

The drips actually have a name called surfactant leaching. Surfactant leaching is a combination of moisture condensing on the walls and extracting surfactants or other soluble compounds from the paint film. Sometimes they can just be washed off and eventually leach out completely. But if you do wash it off a few times and notice it coming back then it’s time to start fresh.

How To Remove Drips on Your Bathroom Walls

Spencer Wieland a Sherwin Williams Representative reached out to me on Instagram after seeing our viral post and shared this knowledge. He said,

“If you have washed it off and then continue with a consistent fan going and proper ventilation in the area it should not come back. But if it does, don’t do another coat of paint because that will bring it back and reintroduce the moisture in another layer of paint.”

He then suggests to, “scuff and sand the surface and repaint with a proper bathroom paint such as Sherwin Williams Duration or Emerald. Anything with moist resistance really helps in the long term with paint choice with low ventilation and for people that take super steamy showers.”

How Penny’s Personal Touch Austin Housekeepers Clean Your Bathroom Walls

So, how do our Penny’s Personal Touch Austin Housekeepers remove the wall drippings on bathroom walls for our clients? We mop the wall, friends! Yes, I know it sounds weird, but it is the most efficient and effective way to clean these high areas.

How Do We Remove the Bathroom Wall Sweat?

As shown in the video, our experienced Penny’s Personal Touch housekeepers are mopping the walls with a flathead mop and a scrubby type of microfiber bar rag that has soap and hot water on it.

We mop the walls with the intention to remove all of the stains and then turn the bathroom exhaust fan on as it dries. (PPT Fact: Actually, we always turn the clients’ exhaust fans on since we are spraying cleaning solutions and using hot water constantly as well. This helps to clear the air and dry the surfaces faster).

Help for Bathroom Walls Seeping

On a personal note, I sure hope this post helped answer such a weird cleaning to do list item on most people’s minds when they randomly see drippings on their bathroom wall. We may notice it at the weirdest times. Sometimes the sun shines in and shows us the walls in a brighter way or we may be relaxing in the tub and look up and wonder, “what the heck?” I hope I’ve removed the “what the heck” from your mind and helped you better understand what the bathroom wall drippings are, how to clean them, and most importantly how to stop them from consistently coming back.

How To Put A Duvet Cover On In 25 Seconds

After this tip went viral on our Instagram page, I knew I had to share it in a blog too. It’s something we do so effortlessly as downtown Austin housekeepers, that we underestimate how we’ve made such a daunting task so much easier with these steps. So, here you go! How to put a duvet cover on in 25 seconds!

Read more: How To Put A Duvet Cover On In 25 Seconds

1. Turn the Duvet Inside Out

It sounds odd, but it’s one of the keys to one of the easiest ways to put a duvet cover on. Place the duvet cover on the bed inside out with the opening at the bottom of the bed.

2. Duvet Insert Time

Now place the duvet insert on top of the inside out duvet.

3. Connect the Corners

Tie all four corners so that once the process is done and you are snug as a bug in the bed, the duvet and insert don’t decide to play slip and slide while you try to rest. We’ve all been there where you see one part of the cover has more duvet insert than the other side.

4. Time To Roll

Now we are going to begin to roll the duvet from the top of the bed, all the way to the bottom where the opening is. I’ve done this by myself or with another person, as shown below in the video. It all depends on what you think may be easiest for you.

5. Insert Rolled Corners

This is the part that is easier shown than told so I hope the video helps display this for you. We are now inserting each rolled up corner in the opening part of the duvet. Once both sides are inserted we can pull over the opening where the buttons or zippers are and button up the roll.

6. Unroll the Duvet

This is the fun part where you see the magic happen. No shaking required, just simply unrolling the work. The key is to keep your hand at seam once you have unrolled all the way back to the top to ensure the duvet insert has rolled out evenly.

4 Hidden Clogged Home Filters And How To Clean Them

I was so shocked to do a walk though of a freshly cleaned 4 million dollar condo for sale that just needed a “touch up” (A realtors favorite line to use for hiring an Austin maid service). I had to take photos to convince the realtor that the new homeowner wouldn’t be thrilled once they discovered these things after unpacking.

The Austin Skyline is booming with views of every side of Lady Bird Lake (Town Lake) that realtors are staying busy listing and marketing the newest view on the market.

However housekeepers see the homes in a more personal way than realtors do. Our heads are deep in cabinets vacuuming up the last homeowners dog food that got lodged in the crevices of the cabinet. Or removing the trapped hair in the shower filter that no one knew was there for years.

The top things that housekeepers discover when cleaning Austin residences for sale is the lack of care of filter cleanings.

After speaking to many of our current downtown austin cleaning service clients, they made us aware that they truly didn’t know a lot of these filters even existed. We also believe that a lot of other cleaning services that may not be familiar with a lot of the downtown Austin condo buildings are also unaware of these filters.

After 27 years of providing cleaning services in Austin we have learned a lot of details that need to be maintained in cleaning and I’m here to share a few shocking ones.

We use so many things to clean for us around our homes that we forget those appliances also have filters. In order for them to continue to work for us efficiently, we need to understand how to find and clean them routinely.

Here are the 4 Hidden Filters that get clogged and how we recommend to clean them easily.

Dishwasher filter

How To Find and Clean The Dishwasher Filter

  1. Google The type of dishwasher you have to find where the filter is located unless you still have the manual
  2. Open the filter and remove any debris that is stuck that cannot go in the drain.
  3. Use a soft bristle toothbrush and gently clean the wire filter
  4. Clean the outer casings of the filter area before wiping and replacing .
  5. Repeat monthly. Check out our Instagram showing how we clean our client’s dishwasher filters!
Hidden Shower Drain Hair Catcher Filter

How To Find and Clean the Hidden Shower Drain Filter

If you have a newer modern shower then you most likely have instead of a small round drain, a long drain as shown in the video above or a small square drain. Did you know you are supposed to lift it and clean it? It may shock you when you do!

  1. Use a flathead screwdriver or skinny sharp object to carefully lift and remove the filter cover.
  2. Remove and clean the filter
  3. Remove, clear and clean the hair trap filter inside
  4. Scrub, rinse and replace the filters, covers, and drain area
  5. Repeat monthly because this place builds up slime and grime that over time clogs and smells horribly! Check out our viral video on this tip.
Washing machine filters

How To Find/Clean The Washing Machine Filter

If your washer isn’t draining properly, there is most likely a clogged filter. We’ve seen something as small as a hairpin stop the flow of a washing machine. Here’s how to find and clear it.

  1. Check your manual first or google the appliance you have to find where the filter is. This small door in the picture above is usually at the bottom of the machine that houses the filters.
  2. Open/remove the door and grab a container to place under to fill all of the water.
  3. Locate the small hose and release the water into the container. (This usually stinks!) Replace the cap on the hose and place back.
  4. Once all the water is drained you can move to the filter and twist to pull out. Remove the debris, and grime to clean, rinse and replace.
  5. Here’s a shocking video of how to find, clean and repeat this step monthly.
Hidden Rangetop Filter

How To Find And Clean The Range top Filter.

This filter area is usually under the microwave or above your range top. When cooking we press this filter/fan on to remove grease and odor particles. If not cleaned often it just can’t work efficiently and will become blocked.

  1. Google your appliance or read the manual on where to locate the filter.
  2. Remove
  3. Soak in a sink of hot sudsy amazing grease cutting dish soap like LemiShine or if it is too caked on we recommend the method in the above video.
  4. You can also place these in the dishwasher monthly to clean
  5. Repeat monthly if you cook often.

Purchasing a home is usually the biggest investment most of us make. We are overwhelmed with manuals when we first move in that we just shove them in a drawer. I would be honored to help you in any way personalize a routine hidden filter guide for your home. Feel free to email me and let me know how I may be of assistance to you for this.

5 Factors To Consider When Washing Your Sheets

It’s said that the average person will spend over 30 years in our beds over our lifetime. Sounds shocking, but whether it’s watching tv, scrolling through our phone, having personal time or actually sleeping, it sounds about right.

But what’s wrong, is the amount of time in between the frequency of washing our sheets. There are a few factors that make frequency in sheet washing a must. Let’s take a look at 5 factors to consider when washing your sheets.

Factors To Consider In How Often You Should Wash Your Sheets

1. Do you sleep in the buff?

2. Do pets get on your bed?

3. Do you sleep alone?

4. Do you have allergies?

5. Is your facial skin care a big priority?

All of these factors have a big impact on the frequency of washing your sheets.

What Is In Your Sheets?

The shocking truth about sheet washing is what you can’t see on your sheets.

Dust mites, their carcasses and fecal matter live off of your dead skin cells. And our friends over at Denise Bell Skin Care shared with us that we shed 50 million skin cells every day. So what you can’t see, dust mites can, and they eat it. Then you sleep in the remnants of that night after night. This isn’t a good thing for your skin care routine no matter what product you’re using.

When we sleep naked to free ourselves from the entanglement of clothes, our bodies release body fluids and fecal matter.

So taking a shower and getting into a couple weeks worth of entanglements just doesn’t sound relaxing to your skin and breathing does it?

Another Factor To Consider When Washing Your Sheets

Pets seems to love human beds more than their own. They alone shed dander and more which adds to what we are also shedding in the bed. Now that’s just an added reason to sneeze in the morning just reading this.

So the shocking truth is that you are most likely not washing your sheets enough.

Weekly washing is a must.

PRO TIP: Pre-treating stains that you can see before tossing them in the washer is a bonus.

SHOCKING FACT: Avoid the fabric softeners too. They add a residue that builds up over time and decreases your sheets breathability causing you to feel overheated in your sheets.

My personal touch note: I absolutely love a bamboo lyocell sheet. They combine softness and breathability. Leave a note if you’d like to know a few of my favorite brands.

We never know exactly what we may walk into when it comes to providing downtown Austin cleaning services. So having these time saving tips helps us work efficiently. Our Austin maid service clients are usually blown away by the amount of work that we do in the time we spend cleaning.

The Two Ingredients to Clean A Burnt Pot

1. One or two non used Bounce Dryer sheets.

2. Hot water.

Add about an hour or two depending on the amount of burnt on issues you have and let the dryer sheet break down the grime for you.

4 Home Inspection Tips for After the Texas Winter Storm

As the electricity ⚡️ comes back on, water 💦 begins flowing normally again, and outside temperatures 🌞 hit above freezing, we will all exhale into some normalcy in our homes.  But before you exhale, it’s time to put on your own home inspector hat and pull out the notepad and phone. 🔎
This time is crucial for picture 📲 and note 📝 taking for insurance claims and more.
As things thaw out and settle, sometimes the hidden issues arise. 🚨 Let’s think about some home inspection tips (some you probably have not thought of) for after this unprecedented winter storm to get your home back up and running quickly.

Four Home Inspection Tips You Never Thought Of After the Texas Winter Storm

How To Inspect Your Home After The Texas Winter Storm

​Check your home like you are Sherlock trying to solve a crime. 🔎
Inspect rooms you rarely go into over the next few days (and month) often. 
​Areas including:
✅closets
✅the flooring
✅the window sills and baseboards
✅and especially in rooms you aren’t in often.
Water damage 💦sometimes doesn’t show up immediately. So consistently inspect areas you rarely pay attention to.While offering Austin cleaning services, we clean many areas our clients rarely notice in detail as we do. We tend to always see the water damage in the window sills, or the mold building up in hidden areas after a rain storm.
​We are gearing up on high alert after this Texas winter storm, to be on the lookout for more than dust when our Austin home cleaning schedules open back up

Ice Machines and Bacteria 🦠

With Austin and most surrounding areas having a city wide boil notice, even though you may not have used your ice, toss it. The freezer and cold temps do not kill bacteria. Some ice makers like the one shown in the photo, are consistently making new ice. Keep tossing the ice it makes until the Austin boil water notice (and surrounding counties) is lifted.


Update or Create A Home 🏡 Emergency Contact List.

Remember back in the day, our parents had that emergency contact list for us, the babysitter, and more…on the fridge or the wall?
Well, your home needs one for its needs, too. You need a reliable source of contacts for your home for emergency situations – BEFORE an emergency arises.
And, if you already have a list, you may want to take a look at it. Is it old? Does it need some updating? You may need to update contact information or create a new relationship. The keyword here is UPDATE. Take some time to look at it now, before you need the information, so that it will be ready if/when you do.
Here is a list to get you started:
Home warranty number:
Electrician:
Plumber:
Appliance repair:
Carpet cleaner/water extraction:
Garage door repairman:
Pool repair:
Sprinkler repair:
Helpful Tip: Build relationships with these contacts by sending them thank you 😊 🙏 cards (for example: during the Thanksgiving season).  Your home 🏡 is most likely your biggest 💰 investment, that houses most of your material possessions.
​Having a team of professionals on standby for your home is a must. ☎️
(Home Depot and you can’t fix it all every time).

The Garage

The garage is still considered a room, and is sometimes used to house many liquids that cannot take extreme temperatures like these we’ve had during this Texas winter storm. 🥶


Any cleaning supplies or liquids that have not returned to a normal appearance after thawed to room temperature and being shaken or stirred are most likely unusable.


If you must discard them, please check your local hazardous materials department for proper disposal details.

A Personal Note From Penny

Knowing that Austin Plumbers are most likely going to be on the top of everyone’s list this upcoming week, I’m one step ahead of you.
Here are a few local businesses I recommend for your Emergency Home Contact list.

PlumberAlta Vista Plumbing (512) 713-0226
Carpet: BB&B Carpet and Tile (512) 589-6406

Personalize your list to meet you and your home’s needs.

I hope you are staying safe and warm. This Texas winter storm showed us Texans what we’re made of. We saw neighbors helping neighbors – folks providing food, heat, water and shelter to some they had never met before. That’s what we’re really all about. 


Please continue to care for one another and, hopefully, these home inspection tips have helped you care for your home as well.

4 Things To Do In The Bedroom Before Valentines Day

Imagine walking into your favorite hotel suite that’s freshly prepared for your arrival. They’ve thought of everything, and maybe even personalized some things for your stay.
This whole set up that you’ve walked into, sets the mood.
The sight, the scent, the luxurious feeling of the bedding, and personal touches have been made to create a memorable experience for you to come back again, and again.
You can quickly do this in your own bedroom for yourself, your significant other, or the both of you.
The goal is to make it memorable and personal, so let’s dive into the personal touch.

THE SITE

Forget the cleaning for a minute, I know it’s weird for me to say that since I own an Austin Home Cleaning Service, but trust me on this. The task of clearing is going to be more important in the bedroom than the sweat of cleaning the baseboards.
Clear the entire bed ✅
Clear the nightstands✅
Even if you get a box or container and stuff that crap in there to set the mood of a clear non distraction area ready for play, I promise the baseboards and blinds can wait.
A quick lightbulb change can also help in this task.
​💡
Changing your bulbs to a softer tone or even taking a few out can help for when the lights actually have to go on after the experience.
about:blank

THE FEELING

Everyone always thinks sheets have to be soft. Well let’s talk about the mattress.
Flip it! Yes, flip that mattress at least every 6 months for even wear.
If you don’t have a new set of sheets, the feeling of not laying in the same indentations on the bed can make a huge difference before you even consider what sheets you’re dressing the bed in.

THE TOUCH

Instead of adding a fabric softener or dryer sheets to your sheets, add white distilled vinegar and baking soda instead.
It’s time to strip the sheets of the build up of laundry soaps, body oils and more.
​They will look brighter and feel lighter.
Check your duvet covers and comforters too. Some are machine washable and could use a shaking in the washing machine or dryer to feel softer.

THE SCENT

Now this gets real personal.
Scents have a lot to do with arousal.
Don’t overdo it here.
That’s why I suggested washing the sheets with items that removed build up of scents and soaps.
I like to switch in between these two options for scents for my blankets if needed.
The Laundress and Le Labo signature Santal 33 detergent is a nice sexy lingering scent that is known for sensual arousal.
If I’m not adding scent to my blankets I’m going for the option of candles to set the mood.
Again I’m going with Le labo but the calzone 17 for a light fresh scent.

A TIP FROM YOUR FAVORITE AUSTIN HOUSEKEEPING SERVICE

Less is always more. It’s more about the personal touch than the abundance of pillows on the bed, sheet thread count, and roses. A simple personal touch in your bedroom ambiance can make a big difference.

Why Is My Washing Machine Leaving Marks On My Clothes and How To Fix It Easily.

The last thing I wanted to see after a week of providing Austin Cleaning Services, was streaky sheets out of my own washer. I’m usually one up on the maintenance list at home, but heck, I’m not even wearing earrings anymore (I usually feel naked without my daily earrings) So the rest of the regular stuff is kind of out of sync too.

​Why Did My Washing Machine Leave Dark Marks On My Clothes?

streaks on clothes in a washing machine

I tend to wash once a week since I’m an empty nester now. I ran my darks through a cycle of washing but I don’t dry them, and that’s when I noticed some streaks. I figured it was a stain from work but I should have known better.
Next I washed my white sheets. Can I tell you that the highlight of my days are getting into bed in fresh clean sheets! Mind you, it’s about 8pm so I’m exhausted and wasn’t ready for the streak of luck I had, to now be up another hour trying to figure this dirt out.
Since I didn’t put anything in the dryer I knew it was the washer. I stuck my head and hand in to look for anything inside, but nothing was found. I knew it was the drum.
Funny that something we rely on to clean, doesn’t do it’s job, and we realize we didn’t maintain it to help it routinely work.
Routine cleaning of the washing machine helps it routinely clean your clothes. My washing machine even has a tub cycle clean button, but just like not wearing earrings daily, I got used to not maintaining my washing machine too.

washing machine cycle buttons

So the washing machine drum (especially in front loaders) gets grimy. It collects greasy residue from past loads and sometimes gets a buildup of fabric softeners and grime mixed together causing these marks on your clothes.
I don’t use fabric softener, but I do usually wash all loads in cold water. So I knew it was time to press that Tub Clean.

How To Clean The Drum Of The Washing Machine Even If You Don’t Have a Tub Clean Cycle.

washing machine manuals

Of course most machines have manuals that we store more than read right? Yes I’m guilty too, because I know what to do, but out of sight out of mind happens to the best of us. My machine even has these maintenance things that stick to the side of the washing machine.

No one is looking to the side of their machine or even inside unless they are missing a sock.

If you don’t have. Tub clean cycle, this method works just as good.

Run a heavy duty cycle on Hot and replace the detergent with White Distilled Vinegar in the dispenser.

I ran my cycle this way even though it has the tub clean and washed my sheets again to test it out.

Fresh, clean sheets again!
My extra hour washing cycle could have been prevented if I ran a tub clean, or a cycle of white distilled vinegar a month to prevent it. Unless it’s scheduled like a dentist appointment most of us will forget.

How our Austin Cleaning Service Can Help You.

We can personalize a cleaning service to meet your needs. We have many downtown Austin Cleaning Service clients that are too busy to even realize their fridge has a built in filter let alone how to routinely maintain their washing machine.
We understand busy personally, and can schedule routine maintenance things like this washing machine cycle to your service.
If my own home was on our Austin Cleaning Services Routine, I would have a personalized to do list with dates and more. 


 I guess I need to be my own client so that I too can get my time back.
