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.

Cleaning for health has never been more important than right now. With the cooler months ahead and viruses on tBliss Home Care | Cleaning for healthhe brink of becoming a world-wide epidemic, taking care of your home and its cleanliness should be a priority. And because the people and pets you share your home with are important to you, we recommend using natural cleaning products which are also environmentally friendly.

So let’s take a closer look at cleaning for health and how you can avoid spreading germs and bacteria throughout your home.

  1. Avoid Cross-Contamination

This is a significant issue and germs and bacteria can easily spread from one area of your home to another. One way you can significantly reduce the risk of infection and cross-contamination is to use different cleaning cloths for each area of your home. You can simply colour code cloths or ensure you are particularly careful with the cloths you are using. Always avoid dipping a dirty cloth into a bucket of clean water. Instead place it under running water and give it a wash before putting it back into the bucket of cleaning water.

Tip: Make a natural cleaning solution for surfaces and floors by simply adding 1 part tea tree or eucalyptus oil to four parts of warm water. Once wiped or mopped, allow surfaces to dry naturally so the disinfectant is on the surface long enough to kill and eliminate any germs.

  1. Green Products That Continue To Work

We use natural cleaning products that have bio-bacterial and enzyme technology which keep 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.

When this type of bacteria cleaning product is applied, the microorganisms begin to digest the waste and the “good” bacteria in turn multiply. The soil is broken down and continues to break down the soil into smaller pieces, until there is nothing left.

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 who assess the products to ensure they meet environmental, human health, ethical impact criteria.

Tip: Use natural cleaning products that continue to work, long after you have finished cleaning.

  1. Air & Sunshine, Natural Born Killers!

That’s right, Mother Earth provides us with the essentials we need when it comes to keeping things clean and making our homes and our environment safe.

Keeping doors and windows closed means that the air quality in our homes becomes compromised with pollutants which can quickly become a breeding ground for more bacteria when someone is unwell. If you’re about to reach for air freshener, think again! The scent and gasses emitted from these products will release more harmful chemicals in your environment, adding to your indoor air pollution.

The solution? Open windows and doors, daily if possible. It’s the cheapest and healthiest thing you can do to improve your air quality. Try to do this for even just 5 minutes a day to create airflow circulation and flush out any of the harmful pollutants and bacteria.

What else can you do to ensure you’re cleaning for health? When the sun’s out take full advantage of it – it’s great at killing bacteria, dust mites and other microscopic critters that we can’t see. These may be thriving in your pillows, cushions, doonas, rugs, and blankets without you even realising.

If possible, remove the covers from items and place them on a clean bed sheet or towel to keep them from getting dirty, and leave them out in the sun for 30 to 60 minutes. Rotate them and turn them over to ensure even coverage. This practice is also great for deodorising any smells from sweat and body odour.

Tip: Open your doors and windows to create airflow throughout your home. Be sure to take advantage of the sunshine to kill bacteria and unwanted critters in pillows, blankets, rugs and doonas.

In our article, 7 Reasons to Choose Green Cleaning, we share healthier ways you can incorporate natural cleaning products in your home.

As you can see from reading this article, cleaning for health is not difficult, however it is something we need to do regularly to keep our home, our family, our pets and our environment safe and free from harmful bacteria, germs and viruses.

Isn’t it true that when your home is cluttered, messy and grubby you feel the burden of overwhelm? You can’t seem find anything you are looking for, you may feel embarrassed about the state of your home, you don’t want people coming over and you feel helpless and don’t know where to begin. Cleaning your home is good for your mental health because it’s directly linked to your health and well-being.

In this article we’re going to share some cleaning and organising hacks that will promote a bright, clean, organised and happy home environment. A home environment that supports peace, happiness and living life as it should be lived.

Bliss Home Care | Why Cleaning Your Home is Good for Mental Health

Why a Messy Room Is Bad For Your Mental Health

When you see a photo or image of an organised home, bookshelf or room do you feel an unexplained sense of satisfaction? Let’s face it we’re all busy so we sometimes overlook the fact that keeping your home clean and tidy is actually good for you. Leading research has correlated clutter with stress and anxiety, so it’s really true, cleaning your home is good for your mental health!

Join us as we take you through each room of your home…

The Living Room

This is one area of the home that you probably invite your guests into so make it as welcoming as possible. You’ll want to hang out there more often too if the space is inviting and uncluttered.

The Kitchen

The kitchen is often the heart of the home and a place where families come together to share a meal and some family time. Make the area as clean and stress free as possible and get everyone, including your kids involved in sharing the joy of cooking (and cleaning up afterwards).

The Bedroom

There’s no better feeling than having a great night’s sleep. Here’s a few things you can do to make your bedroom the blissful and peaceful room it deserves to be:

The Bathroom

There’s no greater satisfaction than a clean bathroom, particularly when it’s sparkling clean. You won’t want to leave!

The Study

When you’re in work or study mode the last thing you want is distractions. If your desk or study area is messy then chances are you will be unable to focus and have the clarity to get through your tasks. Give your study and desk a tidy up and you’ll be more productive!

Getting Started

If it’s overwhelming start with one room and work your way through your home. Once you get started you’ll build momentum and realise the connection between cleaning your home and good mental health. There have been studies which show that decluttering and housekeeping reduces cortisol stress levels and also extend to your physical well-being. If you’re after a more comprehensive guide to decluttering, then be sure to read our article, Tips for Organising Your Home.

At Bliss Home Care we promote cleaning with eco-friendly and natural products so that you, your family, pets and the environment avoid harmful and toxic chemicals in your home. Throughout our article we have referenced natural cleaning solutions so if you want more information take a look at 10 Natural Home Cleaning Hacks.

Once you’re done, put your feet up and enjoy your clean and stress-free home!

You might like to learn more about green cleaning by reading our article, 7 Reasons to Choose Green Cleaning.

We offer flexible employment opportunities to our team so that their hours can fit in around our clients and their own lifestyles and family commitments. We also aim to employ people in local areas so they don’t have to travel long distances to client’s homes.

What Areas of the Home are Cleaned?

We clean just about all areas of your home and this varies for each client and their requirements. A member of the Bliss management team will arrange an initial meeting with new clients to ensure we have a clear understanding of what they would like cleaned in their homes. This is then agreed upon and you’ll get to meet your cleaner as they get started. As a general guide the areas of house cleaning services we offer include:

We also perform regular follow ups both with our clients and conduct home inspections to ensure everything is running smoothly and cleaners are performing their role correctly. Our Supervisors are always available to discuss and adjust any aspects of your home cleaning. This is a very important part of our Quality Assurance process.

Experience and Training

We thoroughly train all our team members individually so they have an understanding of the green cleaning products as well as how they are best used. Our extensive training program also offers hands-on training so that new team members learn how to safely clean without causing injury to themselves in compliance with our Health and Safety Policy.

Our house cleaning team is fully supported by our management and training team and we regularly have training sessions to revisit and review our cleaning methods as well as introducing any new cleaning products. New team members are placed with an experienced ‘buddy’ who will have them learn on the job as well. This helps with the hands-on experience when initially beginning with our team.

While prior cleaning experience is not expected, the willingness to learn and being a diligent and reliable team member is very important to us. It is expected that our team members also have a valid driver’s licence and a reliable car.

What Qualities Do We Look For?

Our team members are energetic individuals who enjoy what they do. They have pride in their work, are diligent and reliable. As most of our team members work autonomously, we do require our team members to have the following qualities:

What Security Checks Are In Place?

We understand your home is your personal haven and sanctuary and we take security very seriously. We are very selective about the people we employ. New applicants are thoroughly screened and checked before becoming Bliss employees.

We do not hire any sub-contractors or contractors which is important to our clients, so they know exactly who is coming to their home. This also means that our team is covered by WorkCover and are insured for public liability and any damages.

Our recruitment program is rigorous and each applicant will go through an initial phone screening. If successful they are invited to interview and are subject to background checks, identification checks, employment history is reviewed, and references are checked before being offered a house cleaning position.

We also assess an employee’s reliability and character to ensure they are a good fit for our team.

What Hours are Expected?

Given that Bliss Home Care is very aware of work-life balance we like to offer our cleaning team flexible working arrangements to fit around our clients as well as our team members. We create our rosters based on employee availability and the client’s requirements.

We generally offer a minimum of 15 hours a week of casual employment (Monday to Friday) and our preference is to hire cleaners in local areas to minimise travel. This means that we attract many women and men who like to work around their family commitments and often work during school hours after they have dropped off their children at school or childcare.

When you are a client, this means that you’ll most likely have a mature team member who is diligent and reliable, and one who also respects your home environment.

This month we get into the nitty gritty of mopping and which method is best for your home.

What is the safest and cleanest way to clean our homes? We are often inundated with conflicting information via clever marketing tactics in retail outlets so we’d like to provide you with some clarity and provide you with some tips on the best environmentally friendly cleaning solution for your home.

While mopping is a chore many people don’t like, it’s necessary to mop our floors to keep things hygienic for our personal environment. This is probably even more important to you if you have young children who are in the crawling or floor play phase. The benefits of using a microfiber flat mop far outweigh traditional mopping options.

The benefits of using microfiber flat mopping systems include:Bliss Home Care - Microfiber Flat Mops

Microfiber fabric is a manufactured man-made product using two fibres – polyester and polyamide. The microfibers are incredibly thin and are wedge shaped allowing them to grab, trap and hold dust soil. Microfiber is tough and durable yet gentle on surfaces because they are non-abrasive. They are also lint free so this eliminates streaky results and can be easily laundered and reused hundreds of times.

 So if you’re looking for an easy, effective and eco-friendly way to keep your floors healthy and clean be sure to choose a microfiber mopping system. They are ideal for use on tiled surfaces as well as polished timber floors. The simple fact that you don’t need to use any toxic chemicals in your home by far outweighs any other mopping options.

Let’s face it we’re all busy, overworked, overscheduled and find it difficult to fit in mundane tasks such as dusting, cleaning, vacuuming, sweeping and mopping, not to mention washing and ironing. Affordable cleaning services make house cleaning services not just a luxury but a necessity in our fast paced world.

Bliss Home Care - Hiring Cleaning Service

Things you Need to Consider When Hiring Cleaning Service

As experienced environmentally friendly cleaning service providers, we often get enquiries from people who have had a bad cleaner experience in the past, so we want to share our top 5 tips on what you should be asking when considering a cleaning service. After all cleaners come to your home, so you should feel that you have competent, reliable and trustworthy cleaners doing the work.

Here are the top 5 questions you should ask when considering hiring a cleaning service:

Does your company have employees or do you use sub-contractors?

When a company has its own employees they have more accountability and greater support from their employer versus a sub-contractor. An employee will be allocated to clean your home, so you know exactly who is coming to your home each week and they will become familiar with your requirements and consistently offer high standards of service. Companies who offer sub-contracted cleaners may change who is allocated to clean your home from week to week and sub-contractors may not be covered by insurance and WorkCover. This potentially puts you and your family at risk so always choose a company that has its own employees for a more reliable service and peace of mind.

What cleaning products does your company use?

Does the company your thinking of employing use environmentally friendly cleaning products? Your health is the most important thing in the world so it’s important to identify if the company uses any toxic or harmful chemicals when cleaning your home environment. Bliss Home Care ONLY uses green cleaning products to ensure your safety and that of your family and pets. If you’re unsure about the differences, read our blog Why You Should Choose Environmentally Friendly products for a better insight…

Does your company offer training and quality assurance?

A training program is important for employees, employers and the client. Employees that have training are competently trained in workplace procedures and processes. They become proficient in all aspects of cleaning. Employees will feel more engaged and have a greater sense of accountability when a good training program is in place. A quality assurance by conducting regular Home Inspections will ensure the client is satisfied with the service being provided and any discrepancies should be dealt with immediately.

Will your company come out to assess my home?

It’s important that your needs and requirements are met, always. Your cleaning company should come to your home to determine what your priorities are and develop a cleaning plan based on your specific needs. This is often referred to as a pre-cleaning assessment.

When we conduct a pre-cleaning assessment we walk through your home with you to identify the priorities and then we train the cleaner allocated to your home to ensure that they focus on these areas of importance.

Does your company offer training and quality assurance?

A training program is important for employees, employers and the client. Employees that have training are competently trained in workplace procedures and processes. They become proficient in all aspects of cleaning. Employees will feel more engaged and have a greater sense of accountability when a good training program is in place. A quality assurance by conducting regular Home Inspections will ensure the client is satisfied with the service being provided and any discrepancies should be dealt with immediately.

If you want to reclaim your time and entrust your home to cleaning to experts, be sure to speak with a cleaning company before hiring them to clean your home. Ask the above questions, and any others you may have. Your home is your sacred space and it’s important that you feel you have employed the company that is best going to best suit your needs.
