New business start up ideas

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

Many people looking for new ways to start up a business do not realize the financial and costs and the amount of time involved. Investing in a franchise is the ideal way to get started. A franchisor will have already done the hard work for you, including everything from legalities, terms and conditions, logo design, website, templates to marketing materials and tried and tested strategies. Almost everything is laid out in a step-by-step guide commonly known as an ‘operations manual’ and training is also given in the proven to be successful business model.

By being part of a franchise there are many benefits compared to starting fresh on your own, there is always support from the franchisor and other

franchisees; As a group, costs can significantly be reduced due to bulk buying power; Sharing ideas and communication within the franchise network can bring fantastic benefits to all too.

Advantages of a Domestic Cleaning Agency Vs Company Vs Private Cleaner

Friday, February 27th, 2015

Many people get confused with the difference between a domestic cleaning company and a domestic cleaning agency.

An Agency will provide a local friendly cleaner which best suits your needs from a database of cleaners that have been ‘vetted’ by the agency. You also get the option to interview your potential domestic cleaner to make sure they are right for you.

An Agency would allocate a regular cleaner who would give you a regular slot in their diary at a mutually convenient time and tend to fit around you rather than the other way around.

We let you provide the materials so that you have the fragrances YOU prefer in your home, although your regular housekeeper can recommend products if you wish. Also we use your equipment so that you don’t have your kitchen floor scrubbed with the same mop after it has been used for somebody else’s loo! The same rule applies to vaccuum cleaners too - some houses have lots of pets, others have little children learning to crawl so we do not like transferring unwanted germs/mites and any other gruesome debris!

Please remember that even domestic cleaners are human and need time off for holidays and are even known to be sick now and then. An Agency usually has a mass of cleaners to fall back on should a replacement be required and will endeavor introduce a replacement asap.

Some people run the risk of employing local private cleaners who will charge around the same amount (if not more) than an Agency, but be careful, you won’t know who you are allowing in your home and they will almost never be insured. If they require time off then you end up cleaning your house!

having a bad day

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Have you ever noticed how one job/chore always leads to another? or am I just really clumbersome.

I attempted to clean my kitchen earlier: Started with the washing-up, just a few breakfast pots and a banana skin. Pots nearly done, go to cupboard with waste bin, struggle with child lock see bin is full. Empty bin, bag splits, re-bag waste (last bag - remember to write on shopping list). wipe mess from split bag off floor. Finish pots drop glass, smashes. brush up take outside to bin. Vaccuum any last glass shards… Damn vac needs emptying now. Empty vac puffing dust all over. NO HOOVER BAGS!!! use Henry without a bag to hoover dust up.

Woof woof! Dog wants to go out, let out.

back in house wipe sides in kitchen and set out ornaments nicely, Clean cooker hobs knock over ornaments that had been arranged nicely a moment ago, put right again. Fill up mop bucket, phone rings, answer phone, come back, bucket overflowing. Tip out water, mop floor…. Done!

Grab a coffee, milks leaked in fridge. clean up make coffee.

Woof woof!! let dog in.

OMG why cant the dog wipe it’s paws…… Why bother!

Moral to the story is… Don’t Bother - leave it to somebody else!

(never did write bags on shopping list!!!)

This Cleaning Tip gives some straight forward very simple advice about cleaning your plates, pots and pans.

This domestic cleaning tip is or should be really quite obvious, when you have finished cooking and eating your meals place your dirty pots, pans and plates etc into your dishwater after first having scraped the food reminants off them. If you unfortunately do not posses a dishwasher then you will have to wash every thing up by hand using a suitable cleaning liquid.

Do not let your dirty washing up build up, as within a couple of days you will find mould starting to grow on all your food waste.

Spring Cleaning

Monday, April 4th, 2011

Have you ever wondered why we chuck the pets in the garden, open all windows and completely bottom the house?

Back in the old days of coal fires and straw matresses it was standard precedure for the housewives to clean the house from top to bottom. The idea was to wait for the winter chill to dissappear and completely freshen the house up. The housewife would clean out the fireplaces and the soot in the house created by the fires, this included the floors. walls, ceilings and furniture in all rooms.

There was often a smell which built up over the winter period due to not being able to air sheets and blankets. Spring was a chance to be able to hang out the laundry after washing and feeding through a mangle. The matresses were normally emptied, washes and refilled with fresh hay.

Jews believed that bread was a forbidden food during ‘passover’ So spring was a chance to remove every last breadcrumb from the house before passover which is in April.

Persians believed in completely bottoming the house in which they called ‘khooneh takouni’. In English ’shaking the house’. A similar tradition is the Scottish “New Year’s cleaning” on Hogmanay.
