House Cleaning: A Labour Intensive Work

By CleaningServices On July 25, 2013 NO COMMENTS

It is Saturday morning, and you are facing the dreaded weekly cleaning task. Cleaning the house can be boring, tiring and labor intensive.

Not to mention, it takes away time that you could be enjoying doing other things. If you have skipped some of your cleaning duties during the week, your Saturday cleaning tasks can take a whole day. This is why most people don’t like cleaning their homes.

Here are some simple strategies to ensure that your home cleaning does not result in heavy labour intensive work.

  • Start with the easiest room first. This will either be the smallest room or the room that’s the least dirty already.
  • Gather up all the things that don’t belong in that room and put them back into the rooms or places they belong.
  • Clear all horizontal spaces and pick up things off the floor.
  • Do the things that take the least amount of work but have the biggest impact first. Make the beds, clean off the counters, put dishes away, sweep the floor.

Prioritize labor intensive duties last.

Don’t decide to tackle your paperwork pile or ironing pile till the very very end. Otherwise decide to just handle it on another new day.

Just stuff it in a folder or put it in a bag and move on. Consolidate those things in one area until you have the time to tackle them.

One way is to usually gather up your loose mail and paper and dump it all on your work desk. Your desk then becomes the last place in the house to get organized.

The idea is to consolidate all the messiness together and then come to the point where it becomes too visible to ignore.

Sometimes it’s a good idea to time yourself and say “I’m going to clean for the next 20 minutes.”

That way, you don’t have to feel like you’re spending all your free time cleaning, but 20 minutes is actually enough time to make a big dent in general messiness.

 

Multi-task when possible.

You can load  your washing machine while the kids are eating their breakfast. You can also clear your kitchen or sink drying rack when waiting for tea to boil. Those little 5 minute tidying sessions really make an impact in the overall appearance of your home.

Cleaning the kitchen is labour intensive as well. Here are some of the duties you can expect to be completed within just the kitchen area:

  • Scrub sink
  • Clean windows and window tracks
  • Base boards dusted and wiped down
  • Clean small counter top appliances
  • Clean refrigerator exterior
  • Clean refrigerator interior if requested
  • Outside of range hood cleaned
  • Top and front of range cleaned
  • Drip pans cleaned
  • Sinks cleaned and disinfected, chrome shined
  • Counter tops cleaned and disinfected
  • Clean outside of cabinets and drawers
  • Clean exterior of large appliances
  • Wipe down inside and outside of microwave
  • Clean table and chairs
  • Floors vacuumed and mopped
  • Trash emptied
  • Cobwebs removed
  • Thorough dusting
As you can see, cleaning can be a labour-intensive task that can knock you out especially after a long day at work. Hence perhaps hiring external help
to support you in living in a clean home is not such a bad idea.

Post Renovation Cleaning Services Singapore

By CleaningServices On May 8, 2011 1 COMMENT

Post renovation house cleaning is also one of our cleaning services we provide. We do not provide cleaning kits or equipments in your newly renovated home.

Just a quick note on post renovation cleaning services, is that we would request at least additional an hour or two to clean your house on top of the suitable time for your type of home. That means to say, if your home is a 4 room HDB, normally we would use 2 maids up to 3 to 4 hours of cleaning. But as after renovation, the house will be very dusty and will require more time to clean. Click here to see our cleaning hour rate.

We would also require if the customer to provide ladder if possible, as we found out that the house is usually quite empty, with minimum furniture. There will be area where our maids will not able to reach (usually high areas), thus not able to clean more thoroughly.

Do contact us using our contact form if you want us to clean your home.

 


Not Cleaning Home Frequently Will Affect Your Health

By CleaningServices On September 12, 2010 NO COMMENTS

We have a few clients who really really like to have their homes kept clean. They are really concerned about cleanliness and thanks to them – our housekeeping staff are kept busy as they clean their spotless homes everyday.

Yep – every single day.

One of the main reason why your home should be cleaned regularly is because of health and hygiene reasons.

In Singapore, dust accumulates fast. Regularly polishing to trap dust on your cleaning cloth and removing dust by vacuuming will give you cleaner air for you to breathe at home.

Regular vacuuming is a great way to keep dust and dirt from accumulating and making allergies kick up.

Take the time also to toss those bedsheets into the laundry! It really helps to make you FEEL the clean difference.

In Singapore, where the tropical and humid climate encourages mould growth – it is absolutely necessary to prevent moisture from accumulating. This means regular finding and scrubbing with bleach-based cleaners.

Is the idea of cleaning your home and list of to-dos is scaring you a little bit? Are you feeling a bit overwhelmed?

Let us help you. Fill up the form to get your free no-obligation house cleaning quote. We will contact you soon.

By CleaningServices On August 30, 2010 1 COMMENT

Cleaning Services in Singapore have different areas that are for different situation, right now if you are looking for moving out cleaning services, because you are a tenant living in a house owned by someone. You now have intention to move out, or even out of the country, as you are under contract that cleaning to be done when return to owner, also known as end of lease cleaning.Moving Out House Cleaning Services Singapore

It is a practice in Singapore for all tenants in Singapore to clean the house before returning to the owner. It is from there the owner will inspect if the house is ready to be returned back to him or her.

Well, there are basically two ways you can do that, one is to Do It Yourself, which you have to move everything out of the house first, so that it will be more easy for you to clean. The other is to engage in a house cleaning company like us to do the dirty and sweat perspiring work for you.

As moving out cleaning is usually more dirty than a move in cleaning, so we would recommend additional hour or two for the house, depending on the size of the house.

Take for example, the house to clean is a 3 room HDB, we would recommend a one maid cleaning for 4 to 5 hours at least. Of course, the cleaning equipments and solutions to be provided by owners, if you do not have anything in the house, we have a $80 cleaning kit that can help you in the cleaning of the move out house.

You can click House Cleaning Prices in Singapore to find out what is the recommended package for you, just remember to add additional one or two hour.

Part Time Maids In Singapore

By CleaningServices On May 27, 2010 3 COMMENTs

Part time maids in Singapore can be easily found, there are a lot of house cleaning services companies out there. There are so many newspaper ads advertising on having a part time maid services to clean your house, even if you search online there are already more than a dozen advertisers too.

How do find the best part time maid company that is suitable for you?

What do you look for in a part time maid?

First thing is that is she able to commit coming to your home in a weekly or even daily basics. It will be better if she is living near your area, but Singapore is a very small country (smallest in the world) and transport  is very accessible to the other parts of the country or island.

Second, is that has she any experienced in house cleaning before? Usually part time maids in Singapore has at least some experience on house cleaning.

Third, is that is she fast on the house cleaning? Experienced part time maids are fast in their work, but if she is over fifty of age, that is another thing. Our part time maids are usually in their early 20s to late 30s.

Forth, is that is she thorough in her cleaning? I have come across some maids who are fast but not detailed in her cleaning. Leaving areas that are hard to reach not clean.

If you need part time maid or part time cleaner for your home or even office, because you do not have time, too lazy, or simply too many areas in you home needs to clean. You can contact us for quotation.

Doing a house cleaning twice in Singapore every month is still okay, as long as there are not a lot of people living under the same roof (3 or less is preferred).

We can alter the cleaning services instead of a weekly schedule, and change it to a once every two weeks session. The deal is still minimum of 8 sessions commitment from our clients. Please look at the Relax Package (one maid weekly) for reference. The rates are the same for twice monthly house cleaning, what you need to do is to check on the number of sessions per month.
