DON'T CUT YOUR CLEAN SHORT, IT'S A MATTER OF HEALTH.

Selecting the right time for your home

It is important to select a time block that suits your home's size, condition and your budget. Our Cleanify Technicians are trained to clean a room to a standard. This is particularly important in areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, laundries and wet areas.

While spiderwebs and dust are unsightly, in a no touch area they are not a priority in today's climate. 

If the workload is greater than the time allocated it puts stress on your cleaner and gives you a service that may not cover all of the essentials. Therefore, puts you and your family's health at risk.


It is impossible for a cleaner to cover a huge space in little time - e.g 3 bedrooms in 2 hours without either working for free (unethical and illegal) or doing a below average job . This is particularly important at times of COVID where occupants are relying on a cleaner to ensure surfaces are clean. We have a time recommendation list for your convenience as a reference point.  Over time, it will become clear how long your home takes for the routine clean and hopefully this time reduces, provided that the soiling decreases. 

The process of cleaning is straightforward in theory - remove the soiling and disinfect the surface. Some soiling such as grease, grime, mould, scum, lime scale and carbon need to be removed prior disinfecting. If you leave the soiling on and just disinfect, this only kills some topical germs and leaves the rest to replace them within seconds. This is similar to washing your hands. Washing with soap and water for 20 seconds is more effective than a squirt of disinfectant, your home is no different. 

Seldom does a one step wipe over clean a well used surface such as kitchen bench, stove top or bathroom fitting. Removing soiling is therefore the most time consuming process but not one which needs to be disregarded.  


Might I suggest, cleaning less frequently but more thoroughly? If you reduce the frequency of the clean but allow the adequate time plus some to ensure that all areas are covered at least once, it makes a huge difference.  

Another option is opting for a first time spring clean which is longer, double or triple time of a routine clean to address the soiling and get the home to standard and proceed with routine cleaning afterwards to address everyday dirt. 

A routine clean needs to address everyday dirt and effectively clean away the dirt that has occurred between cleans.  An easy way to distinguish between everyday dirt and build up is the length of time the soiling has been where it is. 

Our cleaners are trained and work effectively and efficiently. We can chat and work simultaneously but there is no time for meandering. For peace of mind, we track all of our staff via GPS for safety and logistics of our business for the duration of their shift. Our cleaners DO NOT leave early if they deem a job as 'done'.  Every home we service has a job plan that involves additional tasks for the cleaner to do.
