Cleaning Service

The Non-negotiables of Basic Cleaning

What led to you being here? Is it because you’ve keyed in House cleaning in Auckland? Are you curious about what should be included in the cleaning service coming in tomorrow? Maybe you’re also planning to clean your house, especially in this dusty Auckland summer?

Alright, many questions have been let go, and the point is, regardless of why you’ve arrived at this blog post, you can rest assured that your queries on what should be included in a basic cleaning will be answered. Let’s get back to the basics!

Cleaning Service

  • Tidying the “heart” of your home

The best space to start in is where most time is spent in. Usually, the aforementioned resonates with most as the bedroom. We surely hope so, and the answer is not the kitchen or the bathroom-as both would raise some eyebrows! 

Sam Bhandari, Director of Urban Care, once shared why their cleaning services often start in the bedroom. He mentioned, “Cleaning is best done from the inside out. Commencing from the bedroom just makes sense as this is where most rest and lounge, and is one of the areas most exposed to external sources and prone to dust.” 

So this comes with tidying the beds-changing sheets, fluffing mattresses, dusting, and vacuuming. 

  • Cleaning where you clean 

Countless carry the wrong notion that since bathrooms and laundry areas are where we clean, they no longer need to be sanitized. This is illogical as where you clean also connotes that this is where dirt you’ve washed off may have fallen to and, worse, stayed on. 

For this reason, wet places such as these can be found with molds and mildew due to improper cleaning. This must be scrubbed-yes, especially the shower area and the insides of your washing machine. 

  • The Holy Trinity – Dusting, Vacuuming, and Mopping 

Moving onto the living areas, where different types of debris can be found-be stray pieces of food, dust from the outside, formed cobwebs, insects, etc.

The advised steps for this process are dusting, vacuuming, and mopping. Dusting is primary, so any dust that floats as you work and settle on the floor or carpets can be vacuumed later. Mopping and disinfecting the floors is best done after the first two steps, as there will most likely be no more dirt to cling to your wet mop. Just think if the process was the other way around and all that filth would go to your wet mop and eventually to your floors. Vacuuming wouldn’t be optimal, and dusting wouldn’t make sense anymore!

  • Kitchen Duties 

This pretty much consists of washing the dishes and cleaning any appliances. Most of the time, devices and machines that require heavy cleaning are the oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, and freezer.

You can say that the “inside out” mindset also applies here. After unloading, whatever debris is found must be scrubbed, wiped, and sanitized for a cleaner space and a healthier being for the homeowners. 

  • What Else- Look Up! 

Windows, regardless of how high, must also be wiped and sanitized of any mildew or dust. This is especially true if you have pets that like to window shop and ogle at passersby or birds flying by. 

  • Further “Un-trashing” the Place

By now, most of the areas must have gone through cleaning already, but you may be wondering where that foul odor is still coming from? It most probably is the overflowing trash from the bins! Hence, rubbish disposal is an obvious non-negotiable part of house cleaning in Auckland.
