Yeah!! House cleaning is must for every house and I would suggest you to always hire professionals and to use best quality of cleaning products. Never comprise on that as these products effects our health.

I have also changed to Murphy's. It works well and has a warm pleasant smell that is not offensive.

My two Amazons are not birds but kids looking to get into trouble all the time. They do not chew on cages instead they chew cabinet and trim work.
(This is my last home. It was made in 1979 and looks that old too. At this point in my life my birds get most of my attention. Other than chewing a big hole in the wall things destroyed are of less value than a home. My daughter will inherit my house and she is the one messing it up for me now. I don't care what it looks like when I am gone.)
Baby wipes can clean almost everything. Fresh poop wipes up easy. I use an old butter knife on hard surfaces to chunk off dry poop before cleaning. I chunk off fabric too when it is dry. The residual can be brushed out of fabric.

Myrtle has favorite places to perch. I put paper down so I can just change it. I do this in my Cockatiel room and it works well. The most cleaning I do in there is little feathers and dander.

I can't really offer much in terms of tips... I've been doing the same thing for many years: I scrape the poop off the floors, sweep or vacuum, and mop. If I am having company, I go over the floors again with the swifter thingie loaded with Murphy's and lavender or lemon oil after I put the birds in their cages. I don't obsess over dirt any more... I used to when I was younger but not anymore [one of the benefits of getting old :lol: ]

Hello,

You can use baking powder for cleaning because it kills all the bacteria which is not seen & without harm your pet...I think you should try this tips...
Thanks...

I think you mean baking soda and not baking powder [baking powder has baking soda in it but it's not all baking soda and it's much more expensive]. But, in any case, although baking soda is great for scrubbing [it's rough but not too rough] and for deodorizing [it's a salt and it absorbs odors], it's not antibacterial so it doesn't really kill anything.

I have hard wood floors, and soap and water works wonders! I also invested in a very good vacuum cleaner. I place newspaper under Chance's cage and change them every few days with a good floor cleaning, this does the trick!

I used to use air purifiers for Chance's dust, but now I just use the vacuum cleaner and open windows to air the house out and vacuum up the pesky down feathers.

Well, actually, the air purifiers are not for our benefit [getting rid of the birds dust] but for theirs as indoor [and outdoor, too] air is full of nasty particles that mess up their ultra delicate respiratory system.
