How to choose a reliable cleaning service provider for your household

How to choose a reliable cleaning service provider for your household. 

London's life style is busy, not to say manic. The key to freeing some time for something you really want/ need to do is to delegate some chores to professionals. The cleaning would be probably the easiest one to source out. But how to tell a reliable service provider from dubious ones on the market?

First option and the most obvious one is of course to go by a recommendation of a friend/ colleague/ neighbors/ etc.

If the recommendation doesn't happen though, it means you will have to do your own research which is a piece of cake nowadays, taking into account the amount of information on the Internet.

Choose a few companies by your prime requirements, which could be be the type of cleaning your require , price range and their coverage of area you live in. Now you can read reviews on their services on sites like G+, Yell, Yelp, Facebook, Checkatrade, etc.

Once you made sure that people are generally happy with their service, you can call/ email to the companies and ask about their availability, the cleaners they have on board, their vetting system and any other questions you might have.

It makes sense to enquire about the minimum contract (if any) so you have peace of mind shall you have change of hearts and decide to terminate the service. Be aware, some companies might have quite a lengthy minimum contact.

Another important thing to ask if the company holds a Public Liability Insurance and what would it cover.

A good question undoubtedly would be, how long the company has been in the business. A well established company would have the necessary experience and procedures in place to make sure they provide quality, reliable and value for money service.

Ask the company of your choice if you can try them out before signing for regular service. You might have to pay One Off charges but you will have the chance to experience the service and get the feeling what it is going to be like using them in the future.

Final advise would be to have a good communication level with the company you signed up to clean your premises. Like it - say it, don't like it- say it too. All clients are different and so are their expectations. Don't just be complacent and quietly unhappy about the cleaning service you receive. You deserve nothing less than 1st class service!

You Are Not Buying Cleaning Service, You Are Buying Yourself Some Free Time

You Are Not Buying Cleaning Service, You Are Buying Yourself Some Free Time.

Engaging a cleaning company an individual to help you with house chores is not really and not always about not wanting to do it yourself. It’s about getting these 3-4 hours all for yourself which we are urban dwellers are so desperately short of. Do we exercise enough to keep us healthy and strong? Do we have enough time to nourish our bodies with healthy food we cook from the scratch, which is in itself fascinating and gratifying experience? Do we pay enough attention and spare enough time to our loved ones and maintain those very important to us relationships?  I bet many of us will answer negatively to all those questions.Here are a few very simple and highly enjoyable things you could be doing instead of scrubbing the bathtub of yours.

·         Exercise. NHS recommends  that to stay healthy, adults aged 19-64 should try to be active daily and should do:
-          at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity such as cycling or fast walking every week, and  
-          strength exercises on two or more days a week that work all the major muscles (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders and arms).  

·         Do something good for your soul and for your mental health.
Londoners are so lucky to have so many green parks which are free and open to the public daily. When did you take a walk through a park last time without rushing anywhere and simply enjoying the scenery around you and breathing fresh air? Now, you’ve got a perfect excuse to take a stroll with a few extra hours on your hands while your home gets a professional cleaning.A change of scene or a change of pace is good for your mental health. A few minutes can be enough to de-stress you.Walking fast is counted as a moderate aerobic activity by the way, so you tick a few boxes here!
·         Do something together with your family.
Another fabulous thing about London is that it’s got some of the best museums and tourists attractions in the world. Have some fun and quality time visiting them, be it The Science Museum or The Natural History Museum – there is plenty to choose from.It surely more interesting, beneficial and connecting than you cleaning the house and them watching TV. The physiologists say that the problem 90% of modern families face nowadays is the lack of time they spend together as a family and lack of activities which would connect the families.
·         Invest this time into your children future.
3 hours of your time equals to 3 extra hours of study with your children. Did you now that top achievers in school do 14 hours of homework a week? Surely the parental drive, effort and crucially he time here one of the key factors.

Leave cleaning chores to the professionals; invest free time in yourself, family and friends.

Danger and possible side effects of harsh chemicals in cleaning products.

As much as it is very important keeping your house or flat clean, it is also quite essential to pay attention to what kind of cleaning products you use within your household and what chemicals they may contain. As a matter of fact, lots of cleaning products have dangerous and hazardous chemicals in them, which can be extremely dangerous to your health and the health of your family. You should be especially careful about what products you use if you have kids or pets in the house.

Have a look at the labels at the back of the cleaning products you normally use and you’ll find the symbols there indicating that they indeed have at least some harmful ingredients in them. Most toilet and oven cleaners, dishwasher detergents, carpet cleaners and a number of other cleaning product scan be extremely unsafe as they are aimed for the most stubborn tough dirt. They might do a fantastic cleaning job, but is there any danger and possible side effects in using them? Unfortunately, yes and perhaps way more than you’d have thought.

Such ingredient as ammonia, phenols, sodium or potassium hypochlorite, diethylene glycol, hypochloric acid and some other are quite harmful ingredients. It’s not just about wearing gloves while you’re cleaning or making sure you wash your hands after use and keep your cleaning products in a safe place and well away from kids (Even though that’s important as well!). Remember, once you spray a product or open a bottle, the chemicals can and will be released to the environment. They’ll be in the air you breathe and all around. Doesn’t sound great, does it?

Don’t underestimate the importance of using ecological green products. They are not only about your carbon footprint but your own health and safety as well. You may not be able to find all products completely free of any harsh chemicals but you should always try to keep the potential danger and possible side effects to the minimum. In Greenleaf cleaning company, which offers eco-friendly cleaning services, we do recommend using eco-products. Hiring a professional cleaning service, which prioritises eco-products(like us), would be the best option. Such services always try to choose least harmful products for the best results.

Keep your home clean and maintain safe and healthy environment at the same time at all times - during, after and between cleanings. It’s one of the reasons why our clients at Greenleaf Company chosen us in the first place and recommend our services to their friends. With Greenleaf Cleaning Services you are in safe hands.

Why we all have to have a clean, organised and de-cluttered house or rules of de-clattering.

Did you know that cluttered and messy home can create constant low-grade stress and slowly but surely drain your energy?
Did you know that a sign of depression is clutter or the constant presence of a messy room?

According to a study done by a team from Boston University, Smith College and Hartford College, 57 percent of patients who are classified as hoarders (those living in squalor or messy homes) suffer from depression.

A few easy tips on how to de-clutter:
-              Schedule your de-cluttering session, for instance once every 3 months
-              Break the task into small parts- a drawer/ section at a time
-              Rule of thumb – if you haven’t used a thing in the last 12 month- you don’t really need it and it’s time to say Good Bye to it. Be strong!
-              Donate unwanted stuff – it feels good and it’s easier to part with the things if it’s for a good cause
-              If the stuff is expensive and you can’t bring yourself up to give it away for free – flag them on E-bay
-              Ask your friend to help you. I always do. Every time I am clinging to a piece of clothing I never wear – she would insist on me parting with it. She always says that I am freeing the room for a new exciting staff I WOULD use and wear!

Good news, you don’t have to do it alone- we can help you to do this! The task does not need to be daunting and could be completed fairly quickly with a bit of help from professionals.
