With the hectic lifestyle many people in the UK have today, it can often prove difficult to keep on top of the cleaning at home. However, it is vital that your home is kept hygienically clean and tidy to reduce the spread of germs and dust.
Luckily, these days, there are an ever-increasing number of domestic cleaning firms, from self-employed cleaners to large contract cleaning companies, who can help keep your house, bungalow or apartment in tip-top condition.
Domestic cleaning falls into different categories, but generally it is associated with the vacuuming, mopping, disinfecting and dusting of the main rooms in your house, namely the lounge, kitchen and bathroom. However, there are other more specialised domestic cleaning services, which are outlined below:
Although many people prefer to clean the inside of their windows themselves, keeping the outward facing glass looking bright can prove difficult and dangerous. That is why most people rely on the services of a window cleaner, who has all the necessary equipment to get the job done efficiently and safely.
A window cleaner will call at your house weekly, fortnightly or monthly, depending on which you prefer, and will remove the grime and dirt from your windows and window frames. In most instances you do not need to be at home when the window cleaner comes unless you have secure gates that will restrict the cleaner’s entry to your property. Window cleaners usually work all year round, but obviously very bad weather can make the job dangerous so they may not be able to work then.
Although you may vacuum your carpet and wipe down your upholstery regularly, it is still advisable to have them and your curtains professionally cleaned at least once a year. Upholstery, curtains and carpets all suffer from a lot of wear and tear due the their regular use and this, along with sunlight, heat and cold, can cause them to deteriorate.
To slow down this process, a professional cleaner can use a variety of methods to remove the dust, stains, and dirt that can get trapped in carpets, upholstery and curtains, and help to prolong their life in your home. In the long run this could save you money, because instead of having to replacing them every three to five years, with regular cleaning they can last 10 years or more.
