House Cleaning: A Labour Intensive Work

By CleaningServices On July 25, 2013NO 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.

NOTE: Due to the high demand for our cleaning services, we are removing the house cleaning for twice monthly until further notice. We appreciate our customers continuous support!

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). As most of the Singaporeans or friends from overseas living here are busy people with hectic work time, some are even frequent flyers to other countries for business, leaving their Singapore home empty.

As we know that and we decide to cater to our clients who only need to clean their home twice a month, or once every two weeks. We are going to be flexible to you who wants a twice monthly house cleaning.

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. Click Weekly House Cleaning Rates to find out more.

Do not that the $20 charge for additional hour per maid still stands for the twice monthly house cleaning services too.

So here we have it for the one time and weekly house cleaning cost:

$750 One Maid 5 Hrs Thrice a Week, 12 times a month (< 1700 sq ft) suitable for semi D, Terrace house, and Landed Property

Note that the above packages are for references, and may not finish on time due to extra work or the difficulty areas in cleaning, thus prolonging the time to finish up. There will be an additional of $20 charges for each house keepers for an additional hour of work.

And we realised that most of the time, there will not be enough time to finish up. So that is why we allow our customers to upgrade to the next additional cleaning if there is not enough time.

For example, Mr X wants us to clean his condo of 3 bedroom condo (1,389 sq feet). So I will recommend him the 2 Maids 4 hours package, and inform him that if there is a need to increase additional time suddenly, we would upgrade him to the 2 Maids 5 hours package instead.

In this case, Mr X does not need to pay for the additional extension hour for the two house keepers ($40), but instead only pay the difference of $20 from 2 Maids 4 hours package, to 5 Maids 5 hours package. Saving Mr X $20.

Once the cleaning service is done, you can use wire transfer or cheque to make the payment to the cleaning services you prefer.
