4 Home Cleaning Tips You Should Know

Maintaining a clean home has been shown to have several benefits for your overall well-being. However, we recognize that it can be difficult to dedicate time to regularly clean and disinfect our spaces as we try to juggle our numerous responsibilities such as family and work. But what if we told you that cleaning does not have to be complicated at all? As a cleaning service based in Metro Manila, we have spent over seven years developing and refining the Happy Helpers method of home cleaning and disinfecting, and this is the same system we use for our variety of cleaning services that we offer to households and commercial spaces. Here are our top 4 home cleaning tips to make cleaning a lot easier.

Prepare a cleaning kit with the proper materials

Whenever you avail of our home cleaning service, our team prepares a cleaning kit filled with tools and materials. These cleaning kits are actually quite easy to assemble, and we definitely think that it is a good idea to have one available in your home. The main tools you will need include a set of cleaning cloths or basahan, effective cleaning and disinfecting solutions, a hard brush to remove tough stains, a soft brush for sensitive areas, a mop, a pail, a vacuum cleaner, a broom, and a dustpan. In case you didn’t know, we use our own line of all natural cleaning and disinfecting solutions for our variety of professional cleaning services, and these are also available to order on Lazada and Roots Collective.

Create a color coding system for your cleaning cloths

At Happy Helpers, we use microfiber cleaning cloths as these are reusable, absorbent, and fast drying. We also implement a color system that we use in our house cleaning service: blue for the kitchen, green for the bathroom, red for the floor, and yellow for all-around. In addition, we always make sure to have at least two sets of each color for wet and dry surfaces.

Use proper cleaning technique

Following proper cleaning techniques allows you to clean effectively and efficiently. At Happy Helpers, we start by cleaning the walls of the space from top to bottom. From there, we clean the floors from the corners and edges and work towards the middle. This technique is designed to be time saving and thorough, so you can remove as much unwanted dust and dirt in a systematic manner. Whenever you book our professional cleaning services such as deep cleaning service, home cleaning service, office cleaning service, and post construction cleaning service, our team of highly-trained cleaners follow this method.

Follow the three-step process: Spray, Wipe, Dry

When cleaning an area or item in your home, it is best to follow three easy steps: Spray the area with your cleaning and disinfecting solution, wipe the area with the cleaning cloth for wet surfaces, then dry the area with the cleaning cloth for dry surfaces. As we continue to live with an ongoing pandemic, you can also use these steps to disinfect high-touch areas in your home such as doorknobs, light switches, and countertops. If you are looking for disinfection services in the Philippines, we currently offer five types: Disinfection Fogging, Bio-Armor Disinfection, Sanondaf Disinfection for COVID-infected areas, Steam Cleaning, and Air Sanitation.
