5 Better Home Management
Having a cleaner can change the way you think about managing your home. The regularity of the cleaners visits and the time you spend planning what you want them to concentrate on can help you to prioritise what is most important to you and your family. Do you have a set routine for when your bedding gets changed? If not getting a cleaner will force you to create that routine. suddenly you will have a regular weekly or bi-weekly day that you know all bedding is changed without fail. Same with the fridge, you might decide so set a weekly day that all dates on food in the fridge are check and sorted. You also have a professional to consult once you take on a cleaner and they can help you plan and decide what needs doing when.
Of course there are many other good reasons to hire a cleaner but those are some of the big ones. If you want to learn more about how getting a cleaner works and how much it costs please don't hesitate to get in contact and we will be glads to walk you through it.
We have all done it, dropped something we were really enjoying eating on the floor. You quickly scoop it up and maybe blow some dust off it....then the dilemma. Can you still eat it?
This is where urban myth comes in - the legendary five second rule. Simply put: If you pick it up off the floor within five seconds it is safe to eat. The germs don't have time to climb on or something.
You may have this was just an excuse we use because we really want that bit of food until now and a group of scientists have finally started looking at what matters and they have discovered....drum roll......the five second rule is real!
Researchers as Aston University led by Anthony Hilton, Professor of Microbiology, set up a study that measured the transfer of the common bacteria E Coli and Staphylococcus aureus from different types of floor (carpet, laminate and tiled surfaces) onto several different types of food from dry toast to sticky sweets after being dropped for different amounts of time from 3 to 30 seconds.
The results showed that:
Professor Hilton said: “Consuming food dropped on the floor still carries an infection risk as it very much depends on which bacteria are present on the floor at the time; however the findings of this study will bring some light relief to those who have been employing the five-second rule for years, despite a general consensus that it is purely a myth.
"We have found evidence that transfer from indoor flooring surfaces is incredibly poor with carpet actually posing the lowest risk of bacterial transfer onto dropped food."
The Aston team also carried out a survey to find out how gross people really are and they found out
Professor Hilton added:“Our study showed that a surprisingly large majority of people are happy to consume dropped food, with women the most likely to do so. But they are also more likely to follow the 5 second rule, which our research has shown to be much more than an old wives' tale.”
Reviews of QuickCleaner. We love it when people review our service and our cleaners, our customers are the best barometer of how we are doing
A clean house is a sign of a wasted life - its an age old proverb and very true.....sort of. Its not demeaning the work of cleaning or the value of a clean house what it is saying is that we need to spend life living not preparing to live. If you rush home from work on a Friday night to get a head start on the hoovering instead of joining the office in the pub or if your entire weekend is swallowed up with scrubbing and polishing and cleaning grime from nooks and cranny's it stands to reason you won't have spent much time experiencing the billions of things this wonderful world has to offer.
How about if the kids want to bake cakes but you can't let them because you are dreading the clean up operation after. Where does it lead us - stop cleaning start living. Trouble is your relief won't last long. Its a bit like quitting work to concentrate on living, pretty soon the money will run out and it becomes a whole lot harder to enjoy your life. There is nothing nice or comfortable about living in a dirty, unclean, cluttered house. It doesn't need to be showroom perfect but constantly looking through grimy windows will always put a unique depressing filter on the world you see. That's where a professional cleaning service can be a game changer. How about the best of both worlds. A nice clean home that makes you happy and comfortable and gives you the space and ability to live the way you want.....but someone else is spending the time to keep it that way. You can get on with living, get on with spending time with the kids get on with living your life. Cleaning, laundry and ironing services from QuickCleaner start from just £9 per hour! Small price to pay for a life unwasted
Cleaning and sanitising (sanitizing for our American readers!) are word often used incorrectly to describe the same thing. You can clean without and sanitising and you can also sanitise something without cleaning.
In most cases, especially areas of your home such as kitchens and bathrooms that can be home to high levels of pathogens you need to be cleaning AND santising to ensure you have a safe, healthy and pleasant environment.
To put it simply: Cleaning is the process of removing visible dirt, residue, debris or any unwanted items from somewhere or something. When you wipe up split milk from a table top you are cleaning. IE removing most of the milk from where you don't want it to be however it is worth noting that you are not necessarily removing or eliminating pathogens and micro-organisms such as bacteria. viruses and amoeba
Sanitising or disinfecting is the process of removing, destroying or denaturing these micro organisms. Contrary to what you might think it is possible to sanitise without cleaning. using an alcohol hand gel on muddy hands is a good example. Where the gel may kill or denature the harmful bacteria in to soil on your hands it doesn't actively remove the dirt itself. So you can have muddy hands that are not carrying any or at least not many germs.
For Proper deep home cleaning you should follow a process that is simply: Clean and then Sanitise. In high risk areas such as kitchens you will first clean all surfaces with a soap type cleaner and remove all visible dirt and stains and tidy up any mess. Once the surfaces are completely clear to the eye you should apply an antibacterial cleaning product to kill any remaining pathogens and micro organisms. Most hard surfaces like kitchen tops then need cleaning to remove any residue of the cleaning products to avoid any streaks or watermarks and leave you with a gleaming, clean surface that you could eat off.
You don't buy a clean house you buy time and you can spend that time on the things that really matter (not dusting down the side of the fridge!)

"We don't sell boats, we sell time on the water"
That really got us thinking and it transformed our business.
It is fair to say there are too many reasons to hire a cleaner than we could ever list. The big ones include:
Who knows perhaps you will even discover a love of surfing in the time you save every week.
The Best Way to Clear Limescale from inside your Dishwasher

You certainly do not want a build up of bacteria, mold or mildew in there!
One of the most important steps is descaling. IE removing build ups of limescale and other deposits left by hard water. You need to do this fairly regularly from Month to every six months depending on how hard your water is.
