Successful Spring Cleaning Tips

September 8, 2020

  • CLEAN ROOM-BY-ROOM
    Approaching your house room-by-room is the most effective way to deep clean at any time of the year, but particularly in spring.  Create checklists or schedules as a guide & focus on areas of the home that require extra attention. 

  • ORGANIZE & CLEAR THE CLUTTER
    Out with the old & in with the new - one of the biggest parts of spring cleaning is eliminating unnecessary clutter.  A perfect opportunity to take advantage of the natural spring urge to get rid of items you no longer need and begin fresh with a more streamlined lifestyle.  Sort belongings into five categories - rubbish, sell, give away, put into storage & put away.  Perhaps organize a garage sale or donate items to worthy causes - cleaning will become a lot easier once the clutter has gone!

  • GET THE FAMILY INVOLVED

    If you need a little assistance with your spring cleaning project, get the whole family involved!  A fantastic way to get the entire family bonding & working together as a team.  Throw on some music, or create a reward system for that extra incentive to get the work done!

  • ESTABLISH NEW CLEANING HABITS
    An extensive spring clean throughout the entire home provides a fantastic opportunity to maintain the standard simply by developing new, ongoing habits.  Simple day-to-day cleaning routines executed on a regular basis can make it remarkably easier to keep the house clean & tidy all year round.

Keeping Your Home 'Covid-19 Free' 

May 15, 2020

As we transition into Alert Level 2, it is a good time to understand how cleaning can help prevent this disease from spreading again, and what you can do to reduce the risk of infection in your home.

Coronavirus is mainly transmitted from person to person via droplets of bodily fluids, such as saliva passing through the air after sneezing or coughing, and it has the ability to survive from hours to several days on a variety of common household objects and surfaces.

It is therefore vital that we are extremely vigilant with our regular cleaning routines while we are still at risk of another potential coronavirus breakout and spread.

Coronavirus is a delicate structure, vulnerable in its environment.


Following these simple cleaning tips will ensure you are keeping your home in the most sterile condition possible:

  • clean all highly touched areas (light switches, remotes, fridge, cupboard and door handles, taps, alarm or other control keypads, keyboards, phones etc) regularly with a common household disinfectant or alcohol based wipe/spray
  • avoid 'recontamination' by working from one side of a surface to the other using an 'S' shape to clean
  • dispose of used cloths immediately, or alternatively put them through a hot wash cycle followed by thorough drying
  • launder clothing and linen with normal detergent or powder, preferably on the hottest setting possible; ensure laundry is then completely dried
  • washing dishes with hot water and detergent is fine, however a dishwasher cycle is more effective as the water temperature is way higher than hands can tolerate 
  • use correct hand washing techniques regularly, particularly after cleaning, as well as using a hand sanitizer 

Prevention is best...


Remember that surfaces play a role in the transmission of pathogens, so preventing contamination in the first instance is just as important as cleaning.  

Things you can do to reduce amount of surface contamination in your household include:

  • covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, ideally with a tissue, otherwise into your elbow, followed by immediate hand washing
  • practice regular hand washing, particularly before eating or after using the bathroom
  • if someone in the home is unwell, prevent spread of contamination throughout the house by separating them from other parts of the house, ideally confined to one bedroom and, if possible, have them use a different bathroom to other family members

Happy and safe surface sanitizing everyone!
