Great sentences! I gave the other people's corrections thumbs up too, I just thought I'd show you how I'd write this. I usually try to remove as many unnecessary words as possible when I edit.
When we list a number of actions in one sentence, it's a good idea to have the verbs listed in the same or similar tense.
Eg #1: We spent the day walking, talking and biking.
Eg #2: I think parties are great occasions to dance, talk and laugh.
If the actions are not simply listed, but interrelated, we may mix the tenses to make the relationship clear.
Eg #3: I went to many stores looking to buy a set of tea towels.
The above sentence explains why I would goto the stores, where my task was to look for a set of tea towels that I might like. I wouldn't have done any of this, but I needed tea towels, and the way to get some was to buy them!
Cleaning from "floor to ceiling" must have been a lot of work! Because "floor to ceiling" is a sort of idiomatic/colloquial expression, we do not need to write "from the floor to the ceiling"
