Starting to look like a home.

Cleaning is never fun, but when you know it will get you one step closer to your dream, it's not so bad.

That's what we did this weekend. Clean, clean, clean.

We're hoping to be able to get the Cass County Health Department to work with us and lift the condemnation status of the house and put us on a plan to complete the remediation. From what we've been told, the health department likes to work with homeowners to get them back in their homes. That's what we want. To be able to live in Logansport, in our house, and continue to work on "Annie" which is what we call the house.

One of the things that is important in a house with lead-based paint issues is to keep it clean to prevent any lead dust from settling. Even though all the lead paint has been remediated, I am a little paranoid and feel we need to keep cleaning. That means a boring process of consistently wiping down the walls, trim, windows, and floors with water, vinegar, and dish soap solution.

This weekend we added in our steam mop and WOW it did wonders on the tile and the wood floors. Not to mention I enjoy steam mopping. It's instant gratification.

We left feeling like it was actually starting to look like a home 🙂
