Bliss Home Care |10 tips keep your clean home between professional cleaning services10 Tips to Maintain a Clean Home Between Professional Cleaning Services.

Maintaining a clean and tidy home doesn't have to be an overwhelming task, especially when you have regular professional cleaning scheduled. We recommend incorporating some daily habits and quick cleaning routines to ensure your home is always looking its best.

 

Coming home to a clean and tidy home helps you feel relaxed after a busy day at work. It helps remove the frenzied cleaning spree when you’re having guests over. Additionally, if you have kids and are rushing from activity to activity, it can help reduce the overwhelm. More importantly, a clean and tidy home allows you to enjoy the space so much more!

 

  1. Create a Daily 3 Minute Cleaning Routine:
    Set aside a few minutes each day to tackle small cleaning tasks. This is especially helpful for the high traffic areas and those used on a daily basis, such as the kitchen and bathroom. Wipe down countertops, clear clutter from benches and sweep or vacuum high-traffic areas with your favourite eco-friendly cleaning products. Consistency is key to preventing dirt and grime from building up.
  2. Declutter Regularly:
    Take a few minutes each day to declutter surfaces and put items back in their designated places. This will not only make your home look tidier, you will also feel more organised and it will also make it easier to clean when you do your regular chores.
  3. Make Your Bed Every Morning:
    Start your day off on the right foot by making your bed as soon as you get up. It instantly makes your bedroom look tidier and sets a positive tone for the rest of the day.Make-your-bed-everyday

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Clean Up Spills and Messes Immediately:
    Don't let spills or messes linger. Take care of them right away to prevent stains and odours from setting in. Keep a supply of your favourite eco-friendly cleaning products handy for quick cleanups, especially in the kitchen and bathroom.
  2. Stay on Top of Laundry:
    Keep your laundry under control by doing small loads regularly rather than letting it pile up. Set a schedule for washing, drying, folding, and putting away clothes to avoid cluttering up your living spaces with laundry baskets.
  3. Wipe Down Surfaces Regularly:
    Make it a habit to wipe down kitchen counters, bathroom surfaces, and other frequently touched areas daily. Use your favourite eco-friendly cleaning products to remove germs and keep surfaces clean and germ free.
  4. Rotate Cleaning Tasks:
    Instead of trying to do everything at once, break up your cleaning tasks throughout the week. Assign specific tasks to different days, such as dusting on Mondays, vacuuming on Wednesdays and mopping on Fridays, and ultimately enjoy more of your weekend!
  5. Use Storage Solutions to Keep Things Organised:
    Invest in storage tubs and baskets to keep clutter at bay and maximize your storage space. Label containers to make it easier to find items and encourage family members to put things back where they belong (yes, we know… easier said than done).

  1. Get the Whole Family Involved:
    If you have a family, get them involved. Set aside a few minutes after dinner and get everyone in the household involved in maintaining a clean and tidy home. Assign age-appropriate chores to each family member and create a reward system to motivate everyone to pitch in.
  2. Schedule Regular Professional Cleanings:
    Even with the best efforts to keep your home clean between professional cleanings, there's no substitute for a thorough clean by trained professionals. Schedule eco-friendly regular cleaning to tackle hard-to-reach areas, remove stubborn dirt and grime and keep your home looking its best.

By incorporating these tips into your cleaning routine you will develop daily habits to keep your home clean and tidy between professional cleanings. Consistency, organisation and teamwork are the keys to maintaining a clean and welcoming living environment for you and your family.

How-to-treat-mould-naturallyHave you noticed mould growing in your bathroom, bedroom or living area? If you have, it’s incredibly important to treat the mould immediately as it can be damaging to your and your family’s health.

 

If you suspect mould growth in your home, it's crucial to address the issue promptly.

In this article, we look at the signs of mould, the health implications of mould, treating mould naturally and 3 easy steps to prevent mould.

 

Signs of Mould

 

Mould can spread quickly and cause damage to your property and potentially impact your health. Here are 3 common signs that suggest you may have mould:

 

  1. Visible growth
    The most apparent sign of mould is seeing it on walls, ceilings, bathrooms or other surfaces. Mould may appear fuzzy, slimy, or powdery in various colours such as black, green, white, or grey.
  2. Musty odour
    Mould often emits a distinctive musty, earthy smell. If you notice an unusual odour, especially in enclosed spaces like bathrooms and bedrooms, it may be an indication of mould growth.
  3. Water damage
    Areas that have experienced water damage such as leaks, floods, or excessive moisture, are susceptible to mould growth. Check walls and surrounding areas for hidden mould behind surfaces, in particular, look for:

 

Health Implications from Mould

 

Mould produces allergens, irritants and potentially toxic substances called mycotoxins. When mould spores are present in the air and when inhaled they can trigger various health problems, especially for individuals with existing respiratory conditions. Additionally, mould can trigger:

 

 

The severity of health effects is dependent on the type of mould, individual sensitivity and extent of exposure. To protect yourself and your family from any potential health implications, eliminate the mould and prevent it from reoccurring.

 

Treating Mould Naturally

 

Most of the mould cleaners you buy from supermarkets and cleaning supply stores are laden with toxic chemicals. Essentially, you are treating toxicity while exposing yourself to more toxicity from chemicals. We highly recommend taking a natural approach, which is just as effective.

 

All cleaning products used by Bliss Home Care have bio-bacterial and enzyme technology which keeps on working even after you have finished cleaning. These natural cleaning products are made up of “good” living bacteria to break down and liquefy soils such as fat, proteins, carbohydrates and grease while eliminating odours. These products keep on working even after you have finished cleaning.

 

In particular, for bathrooms, we use Shower BlitzTM. This product can be used all over your walls, shower, tiles, sink and toilet. It contains cultured bacteria that eat away and decompose hard to remove soap scum and prevent the growth of mould. The bacteria bio-degrades matter rather than mask or bleach the problem.

 

For more information on safe and natural cleaning products you may like to read our article, An Insight to Natural Cleaning Products which breaks down the facts on these Australian made natural cleaning products. The range has been certified by Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA), an independent body that assesses the products to ensure they meet environmental, human health, and ethical impact criteria.

 

3 Steps to Prevent Mould

Preventing mould growth in your home involves keeping moisture levels under control and creating an environment where mould cannot grow and thrive. Here are the 3 most important steps to prevent mould growth in your home:

 

  1. Open doors and windows regularly
    This helps you control humidity levels in your home, especially in the bathroom, kitchen, laundry and bedroom. By simply opening doors and windows on a daily basis and using exhaust fans will enable moisture to escape.
  2. Address leaks immediately
    Inspect your home regularly for leaks in the roof, plumbing or walls. If you identify any leaks have them addressed immediately to prevent water build up and mould growth.
  3. Regularly clean your home
    This helps eliminate the build up of mould spores from settling on surfaces. Use natural cleaning products and focus on wet areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry. We recommend drying these areas on a regular basis for best results.

 

By taking these preventive measures you can significantly reduce the likelihood of mould growth in your home. This will result in a healthier living environment for you and your family. Our approach is all about being eco-friendly, local, and thoroughly professional. For you, that means house cleaning that is better value, more reliable and healthier for your family and your community.

Bliss Home Care | A Guide to maintain carpetWhen selecting carpets and rugs, we usually focus on the look and feel. However, there are other important aspects that should contribute to your decision. This comes down to the materials used in the carpet and rug, the weave, durability and performance over time, as well care and cleaning methods.

 

In this article, we’ll take a closer look at these elements to help you make an informed decision when buying your next carpet or rug.

 

Types of Carpets & Rugs

 

Carpet fibres are the individual strands of material that make up the surface of a carpet. The choice of carpet fibre significantly affects the carpet's appearance, performance and maintenance requirements. Here are some basics about common carpet fibre types:

 

  1. Nylon

Nylon is one of the most popular synthetic carpet fibres due to its durability and resilience. It is known for its ability to withstand heavy foot traffic and resist wear and tear. Nylon carpets are also highly resistant to stains and are relatively easy to clean. They come in a wide range of colours and styles.

 

  1. Polyester

Polyester is another synthetic fibre used in carpets. It is known for its softness, vibrant colours and stain resistance. Polyester carpets are generally less expensive than nylon carpets but may be less durable, especially in high-traffic areas. However, advances in technology continue to improve the durability of polyester carpets.

 

  1. Olefin (Polypropylene)

Olefin (polypropylene) is a synthetic fibre that is resistant to staining, fading, and moisture. It is often used in indoor and outdoor carpets and is suitable for areas prone to spills or moisture. Olefin carpets are generally less expensive but may not be as durable as nylon or polyester.

 

  1. Wool

Wool is a natural fibre that is highly regarded for its luxurious feel, durability and natural stain resistance. Wool carpets are known for their ability to retain their appearance over time and are often considered a premium option. Wool is naturally flame retardant and has excellent insulation properties, making it a good choice for both warmth and sound absorption.

 

  1. Blends

Some carpets are made from a blend of different fibres to combine their positive attributes. For example, a common blend is nylon and polyester, which combines the durability of nylon with the softness and affordability of polyester.

 

Which should you choose?

When choosing a carpet fibre, you should consider factors such as the level of foot traffic in the area, the level of stain resistance, your budget and personal preferences for softness and appearance. Buying a carpet or rug can be a significant investment, so you should also consider longevity and how easy your carpet is to care for and clean.

Carpet Cleaning Methods to Increase Health & Longevity

 

Did you know that carpets can contain up to four times their weight in dirt and other debris? While they may appear clean on the surface, they can harbor a surprising amount of dirt, dust and grime. This is the reason it’s critical for your and your family’s health that you clean carpets regularly. Read about the Top 5 Benefits Of Deep Carpet Cleaning for your family’s health.

 

In addition to dry vacuuming, we recommend deep cleaning once or twice a year to remove contaminants, improve indoor air quality and help keep your home clean and healthy. Let’s take a closer look at ways to keep your carpets clean and healthy…

 

Dry Vacuuming is the most important step in carpet maintenance as it helps to remove loose dirt, dust, debris and allergens from the surface of the carpet. A domestic vacuum cleaner will help you keep your carpets as clean as possible when they are vacuumed regularly.

 

There are so many options when it comes to choosing a vacuum cleaner for your home – bag or no bag system, filtration system, suction strength You want to be sure that you choose a high-performance vacuum cleaner to keep your home as clean as possible. Read our guide How to Choose a Vacuum Cleaner for Your Home for some great tips.

 

Hot Water Extract Carpet Cleaning is based on spraying very hot water (not steam) on the carpet and constantly extracting the water from the carpet by very high-pressured vacuuming. This method enables any soil or dirt on the carpet to be removed and dissolved quickly and effectively. The advantage of using the hot water extract carpet cleaning method is the minimum amount of detergents and chemicals used. Many carpet manufacturers promote hot water extraction carpet cleaning as the most effective carpet cleaning method, especially for natural and man-made fabrics

 

Dry Carpet Cleaning is a method that uses specialised machines to clean carpets without the use of water or steam. Instead, a dry cleaning compound is applied to the carpet, which is then agitated using a brush or machine to help the powder penetrate the carpet fibres and absorb dirt and debris. Once the compound has absorbed the dirt, it is vacuumed up using a specialised machine, along with the dirt and debris that it has absorbed. One of the main benefits of dry carpet cleaning is that it is a low-moisture method, meaning that carpets can be used and walked on immediately after cleaning.

Bliss Home Care | Carpet Cleaning

 

Carpet Cleaning Will Keep Your Home Clean and Healthy

How often do you clean your carpets? It’s something you may not give much attention to and you possibly vacuum regularly so your carpet should be clean, right? Well, the answer goes a lot deeper than what we see on the surface.  Carpets can harbor a surprising amount of dirt, dust, and grime, even if they appear clean on the surface. In fact, carpets can contain up to four times their weight in dirt and other debris!

Can carpet be harmful to your health?

Carpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, and other particles that are brought into the home on shoes and clothing, as well as pet hair, pollen, and other allergens that are present in the air. Over time, these particles can become embedded in the carpet fibers, making them difficult to remove with regular vacuuming.

Carpets can also be a breeding ground for bacteria, mould, and other microorganisms if they are not properly cleaned and maintained. This can pose a risk to your and your family’s health, particularly if you or someone in your family

has allergies or respiratory problems. If your young children play on the carpet they are also being directly exposed to the dust, dirt, and particles that get trapped there posing potential health risks.

Regular deep cleaning with methods such as hot water extract cleaning and dry carpet cleaning can help to remove these contaminants from your carpets, improving indoor air quality and helping to keep your home clean and healthy.

What is the difference between Hot Water Extract Cleaning and Dry Carpet Cleaning?

 

In general, there seems to be a misconception about hot water extract and dry carpet cleaning methods. Here we explain the differences:

Hot Water Extract Carpet Cleaning is based on spraying very hot water (not steam) on the carpet and constantly extracting the water from the carpet by very high-pressured vacuuming. This method enables any soil or dirt on the carpet to be removed and dissolved quickly and effectively.

The advantage of using the hot water extract carpet cleaning method is the minimum amount of detergents and chemicals used. Many carpet manufacturers promote hot water extraction carpet cleaning as the most effective carpet cleaning method, especially for natural and man-made fabrics.

Dry Carpet Cleaning is a method that uses specialised machines to clean carpets without the use of water or steam. Instead, a dry cleaning compound is applied to the carpet, which is then agitated using a brush or machine to help the powder penetrate the carpet fibers and absorb dirt and debris. Once the compound has absorbed the dirt, it is vacuumed up using a specialised machine, along with the dirt and debris that it has absorbed.

One of the main benefits of dry carpet cleaning is that it is a low-moisture method, meaning that carpets can be used and walked on immediately after cleaning. This can be especially important in commercial settings where

downtime is not feasible. Additionally, dry cleaning can be a good option for carpets that are prone to shrinkage or discoloration with traditional wet cleaning methods.

However, it is important to note that dry carpet cleaning may not be as effective at removing deep-seated dirt and stains as hot water extract carpet cleaning, and it may not be suitable for heavily soiled carpets.

Top 5 Benefits of Deep Carpet Cleaning

As you can see there are many harmful aspects that can be trapped and hidden in your carpets. Regularly deep cleaning your carpet is the best way to keep your home clean and healthy. Here are the top 5 benefits of regular deep carpet cleaning.

  1. Healthier carpet and home

Deep carpet cleaning is an effective method for removing dirt, grime, and stains from carpets. The high temperature of the hot water can penetrate deep into the carpet fibers, loosening and lifting dirt and debris that is trapped within. This results in a much deeper cleaning than other cleaning methods, such as vacuuming or dry cleaning.

  1. Improved indoor air quality

Carpets can harbor dust mites, allergens, and other pollutants that can negatively impact indoor air quality. Hot water extract cleaning can kill dust mites and remove allergens, resulting in cleaner and healthier air in your home.

  1. Removal of bacteria and germs

Hot water extract carpet cleaning can also kill bacteria and germs that may be present in your carpets. This is especially important for households with young children or pets who spend a lot of time playing on the floor.

  1. Extends the life of your carpet

Regular deep cleaning can help extend the life of your carpet by removing dirt and debris that can wear down the fibers over time. By keeping your carpet clean, you can avoid the need for costly replacements and repairs.

  1. Environmentally friendly

Hot water extract carpet cleaning is a more environmentally friendly option than traditional cleaning methods, which often rely on harsh chemicals. This cleaning uses water and heat to clean with minimal detergent, making it a safer and more sustainable option for your home.

 

Melbourne’s Best Carpet Cleaners

 

As you can see there are many benefits to deep cleaning your carpets on a regular basis. Not only will you have a healthier home but you will also be extending the life of your carpets if you deep clean your carpets every 12 months.

The benefits of using natural cleaning products essentially come down to health. The health of our own human health, our pets and our precious earth. In this article we shed some light on the common household cleaners which are harmful, their side effects and why you should choose natural cleaning products.  

What many people don’t realise is the detrimental impact of choosing chemical based products over natural cleaning products. The hidden dangers are normally masked with fragrances and promises of clean sparkly homes.   

The use of these chemicals in your home contributes to indoor air pollution. These chemicals are often poisonous and can cause harm through ingestion, inhalation and absorption through skin. In fact, according to an international report, cleaning products are the most toxic products found in homes.  

Some chemicals can cause acute and immediate hazards such as sneezing, skin or respiratory irritation, chemical burns, watery eyes. Other chemicals can be associated with chronic and long-term effects such as diseases and illnesses.  

Some of the common items in your home which have harmful chemicals include: 

Some of the side effects of using chemical products include: 

When there is prolonged use of chemical based products, it can also contribute to several types of cancers, as well as lung and heart damage.   

The next time you’re out buying your cleaning products, be sure to read the fine print. You may be surprised by what’s in the ingredient list and the warnings issued on the labels.   

So what can you do to protect your home, your family, pets and our environment?   

Choose Natural Cleaning Products  

Natural cleaning products are derived from natural sources. These products are non-toxic to human health, pet health and our environment. They are normally more cost effective and do the job as well as chemical alternatives.   

You can choose to make your own natural cleaning products from items you may already have in your pantry or cupboards. These common items include: 

The ingredients listed above have a number of uses and benefits. As you can see there are no chemicals and they are all completely natural.

Now, more than ever, it’s time to take action and learn how to disinfect your home and what products you should use so that your home remains your safe haven. In this article we take a closer look at how you can disinfect your home against the harsh germs circulated by COVID-19 and many other viruses and bacteria and the most effective way to keep your family safe.

Is There a Difference Between Cleaning & Disinfecting?

Cleaning and disinfecting may seem like the same thing, but there are differences. Cleaning does not kill germs, it’s the process of physically removing dirt and grime from surfaces. Cleaning helps to reduce the number of germs on surfaces to reduce the risk of spreading bacteria.

Disinfecting is the process of using chemicals referred to as disinfectants to eliminate and kill germs that remain on the surface after cleaning. It’s really important to clean surfaces before disinfecting to make the process much more effective.

How To Keep Yourself Safe While Cleaning & Disinfecting Your Home

Care should be taken to ensure your safety while cleaning. Here are 3 tips to keep yourself safe:

Disinfecting Frequently Touches Surfaces

Germs can live on frequently touched surfaces for anywhere between 10 minutes to 12 hours. This includes items such as door handles, benches, light switches, taps, table tops, toilets, hand rails, remotes, fridge door, microwave and any other area of the home that is frequently touched. The key to cleaning and disinfecting these highly frequented areas is to use a high grade (also known as a hospital-grade) disinfectant after you have cleaned the surface.

Once applied to the surface it needs to cure (left there to dry) for 10 to 30 minutes at room temperature to ensure that all traces of bacteria are removed. After it’s cured, wipe the surface with a warm cloth. Be sure to rinse the cloth in warm soapy water before cleaning the next surface or better still use a fresh cleaning cloth for each area of the home you are disinfecting.

What Is a High Grade Disinfectant?

Regular household disinfectants are not adequate enough to eliminate and kill COVID-19 bacteria during the disinfecting process. Hospital-grade disinfectants need to be certified and contain at least 70% ethanol to effectively wipe out any bacteria. Using a high grade disinfectant will be the only way to ensure the hygiene and safety of your home.

Increase Air Circulation

During the cooler months that are approaching we tend to keep our doors and windows closed, however this action compromises the air quality in our home and increases pollutants. This creates a breeding ground for more bacteria, particularly when someone in our home is unwell.

The most simple and effective way to increase the air quality in your home is to simply open doors and windows. Try to do this on a daily basis, even if it’s only 5 to 10 minutes each day. It will create airflow circulation and flush out any harmful pollutants and bacteria that may be present.

It’s particularly important to open doors and windows when you’re disinfecting your home. Surfaces that have been cleaned and left to cure will work much faster and will allow you to get back to enjoying more time with your family.
