How professional cleaners are dealing with the outbreak

Not Everyone can or has the time to clean their own Homes – this makes Professional cleaning more important than ever right now. Many of our residential clients completely rely on regular weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly cleaning services. Many individuals, because of medical or mental health reasons, simply cannot perform basic cleaning tasks and certainly not deep cleaning and sanitization – which is imperative during COVID-19 outbreak. 
House Cleaning is actually one of the most essential services provided to the public during times like these. According to the Australian Lung Association and the CDC, having a clean-living environment greatly increases the viability and resilience of health within your homes and businesses, especially when facing an epidemic of lung disease, such as COVID-19. We thank you for trusting in us as your cleaning service providers and we look forward to helping keep your family safe during this time.

Safe method – cleaning effectively

Effective cleaning needs to be carried out in two stages. Disinfectants will only work on clean surfaces. Our cleaners always uses a cleaning product to remove visible dirt and grease before disinfecting. They always check the manufacturer’s instructions for the correct dilution and contact time for disinfectants or sanitisers.
When you are cleaning, remember to move food out of the way, or cover it. This is to prevent dirt, bacteria or cleaning chemicals from getting onto food.
