The Tenant’s Guide to Rental Property Improvements

June 20th, 2016

Rental property improvements

We always want our properties to look better, no matter if we own the place or rent it. We wish to live in a cosy and beautiful home and for it to reflect our personality.
Unfortunately, this can be quite difficult for tenants as they face the limitations of a contract. Most of the times, landlords are the ones responsible for house repairs. Improvements, on the other hand, are carried out by renters. Which means you’re probably far away from MTV Cribs. But don’t give up just yet. You can still make your home pretty and inviting. In fact, you can even persuade your landlord to pay for some improvements.
In this article you’ll learn:

Spring Cleaning – Bathroom Cleaning Checklist

Being the busy bees that we are, we often find ourselves clearing only bits and pieces of dirt and clutter during the week. We do the dishes after dinner, laundry time is twice a week, and if we’re lucky, we get to scrub the bathroom. Really, really quickly. And who could blame us for our sloppiness? Less cleaning means more time with families, chilling and relaxing, right?
But that doesn’t mean we have to live in a mess. It’s that time of the year again and spring cleaning is here to save the day.
Having your home cleaned A to Z in Spring gives you a fresh start. The house will be sorted and cleared out of everything you don’t need. You’ll get your rooms perfectly clean and in order again. And that’s not the end of it. Spring cleaning has even more benefits than you think. Did you know, for example, that spring cleaning inspires diet changes as well? A clean and decluttered home lowers the stress and boosts the mood. And… spring cleaning is really satisfying.

We started our series with a kitchen checklist for spring cleaning. And while you’re on fire, we suggest you to tackle the next hard task and clean the bathroom. After that, the rest of the house will seem like a child’s play. Cleaning the bathroom is a least favourite chore for many. It involves powerful detergents, lots of scrubbing and disinfecting. Think about the result, though — you will have a pristine clean bathroom to pamper yourself in. You can achieve that relaxing spa atmosphere seen on magazines. You can finally get all that stubborn limescale off of the tap.

Spring cleaning is a heck of a big deal, won’t you say? With all the planning, organizing and decluttering you have to do it is easy to get scared. As professional cleaners, we know that what you need is a little guidance and some spring cleaning tips. Once you have it organized and figured out it gets quite easy and even fun.

There is a way to not get intimidated by the work before you. Divide and conquer, we say. Room by room, corner after corner, you can clear out the entire house.

Why not start by cleaning the kitchen? It is probably the place that gets the most stubborn grime and clutter. And once it gets cleaned it will be a real joy to cook in it and invite guests for dinner.

Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products for Your Home

September 28th, 2015

Cleanliness and health. You’d expect the two to go hand in hand but sadly that’s not always the case. A research from as far back as 2004 suggests that the chemicals found in many common commercial household cleaners can be implicated in asthma and other allergic conditions and many of them aren’t very Eco-friendly either.

The good news is that there are alternatives, harmless to both your health and the environment. Better yet, they’re cheaper than commercially produced cleansers. Here’s a round-up of the best three products you can use for your domestic or tenancy cleaning and how to get the best out of them:
