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!!!)

sexy young domestic cleaning maid

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

I  have recently redesigned some my companies marketing material and on my companies business leaflets I have included a photograph of asexy young domestic cleaning maid sexy young domestic cleaning maid. The photograph covers about 25% of the front side of the leaflet. 

We have already delivered in the region of 16000 of these new business leaflets and I can honestly say that my hit rate per thousand as doubled. Is the reason for this increase the picture of the attractive cleaning maid or is it because all of a sudden people have more disposable income available to them?

My gut feeling is that it is the sexy cleaning maid more than the increase in disposable income, what are your thoughts and have you tried something similar in the past?

One off cleans

One off cleans

One off cleans can be quite in-depth cleans or alternatively just simply a quick clean that as been caused due to a regular cleaning maid being ill or away on holiday. 

A cleaning business or cleaning maid when performing a one off clean will firstly liase with their customer to determine the cleaning jobs that are required by means of an initial site visit. 

After the initial site visit the cleaning business or cleaning maid will return at a pre agreed date and perform whatever cleaning tasks were agreed to the satisfaction of the customer.  This can include amongst many other cleaning tasks, washing of the walls, cleaning inside cupboards, cleaning kitchen units, ensuites, bathrooms etc.  Most domestic cleaning companies will also often offer their customers a carpet shampooing service if this is deemed a necessary requirement of the one off clean. 

When the domestic cleaning company or cleaning maid as finished cleaning the customers property the property should be cleaned to a standard that meets with the satisfaction of their customer.

Clean living in Spain

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

Clean living in Spain

A couple of years ago Alan and myself were fortunate to live in Spain in a small village just outside Granada. The first night in our new home was absolutely freezing, however on waking up at 8.30ish next morning (we had been driving for 36hours) we were met with a great sight. The female neighbours were out flicking dust from the grills on the windows and sweeping both their own entrances and ‘their’ part of the road. Every other day they hose piped their part of the road down thus keeping the whole street exceptionally clean.

After a few days i got into the habit of being outside at 7.30 in the morning to do my spot of road sweeping and gained a great deal of pride out of it, what with that and the dustbin men emptying bins every night seven days a week the village was kept very clean and I can’t help but wonder how our villages would look if we adopted this same practice

Regular weekly helping hand cleans

Regular weekly helping hand cleans

 

Within the world of domestic cleaning there are many types of different cleans available ranging from a regular weekly light helping hand cleans through to the extremely thorough military march out cleans.  With this series of posts I will be describing in detail what a customer can expect to receive for the various types of clean that are available.

Regular weekly light helping hand cleans

A regular weekly helping hand clean usually is quite a light basic clean and not as intense or as deep as many other types of clean that can be carried out within properties. Regular weekly cleans are usually performed in properties that are already cleaned to a respectable high standard.  Usually the cleaning lady/maid will help out by doing regular weekly light cleaning tasks such as vacuuming the property, lightly cleaning skirting boards, polishing, general light kitchen and bathroom cleaning maintenance, cob webbing, dusting, mopping floors plus lots of other every day household cleaning jobs.

A regular weekly helping hand clean can also be described as a keeping on top of clean.  Properties that are already at a good high level of cleanliness a regular weekly light helping hand clean is all that should be required to maintain satisfactory cleaning standards within the property.

Sexy cleaning maids encourage more business

I have recently updated my marketing material and on my business leaflets I have included a photograph of a sexy cleaning maids. The photograph covers about 25% of the front side of the leaflet.

I have already delivered in the region of 4000 of these new business leaflets and I can honestly say that my hit rate per thousand as doubled. Is the reason for this increase the picture of the attractive cleaning maid or is it because all of a sudden people have more disposable income available to them?

My gut feeling is that it is the maid more than the increase in disposable income, what are your thoughts and have you tried something similar in the past?
