Protect your loved ones from covid-19

In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of the importance of environmentally friendly practices in all aspects of our lives and home environment, including cleaning. Green cleaning, also known as eco-friendly or sustainable cleaning, involves using products and methods that minimise environmental impact and promote health and well-being.

In this blog, we explore the benefits of green cleaning for both your health and your home, and why it's an essential practice for today's conscientious individuals.

Benefits for Your Health

Bliss Home Care | Green Cleaning Benefits

  1. Reduced Exposure to Harmful Chemicals

Traditional cleaning products often contain harsh chemicals and toxins that can be harmful to both humans and the environment. You only need to read the warning labels on the products to be alarmed at how toxic they can be. By switching to green cleaning products made from natural ingredients you can reduce your exposure to these harmful substances and protect your health, the health of your family, pets and the environment.

  1. Improved Indoor Air Quality

Many commercial cleaning products contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can pollute indoor air and contribute to respiratory problems such as asthma and allergies. Green cleaning products are free from these harmful chemicals, helping to improve indoor air quality and create a healthier living environment for you and your family. To further promote indoor air quality open doors and windows daily to circulate fresh air. You may also like to read our article, Benefits of Indoor Plants which outlines the benefits of indoor plants and which plants are best.

  1. Safer for Children and Pets

Children and pets are particularly vulnerable to the effects of toxic chemicals found in traditional cleaning products. Green cleaning products are safer and gentler, making them a better choice for households with young children and furry friends who may come into contact with cleaned surfaces.

Benefits for Your Home

  1. Environmental Sustainability

Green cleaning products are made from renewable, biodegradable ingredients that have minimal impact on the environment. By choosing eco-friendly products and methods, you can reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to a healthier planet for future generations.

  1. Gentle on Surfaces

Harsh chemicals in traditional cleaning products can also damage surfaces over time, leading to wear and tear that requires costly repairs or replacements. Green cleaning products are gentler and less abrasive, helping to preserve the integrity of surfaces such as countertops, floors and appliances.

  1. Cost-Effective

Contrary to popular belief, green cleaning doesn't have to break the bank. Many eco-friendly cleaning products are affordable and can be made at home using simple ingredients like vinegar, lemon juice, and olive oil. Additionally, the long-term benefits of green cleaning, such as improved indoor air quality and reduced maintenance costs, can result in savings over time.

Make the Switch to Green Cleaning

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Timber floors are known for being low maintenance and a great flooring choice for those who suffer from allergies. There are many different finishes on timber floors from high gloss to matt and laminate. Firstly vacuum or sweep your floors. Never saturate timber floors with water or leave water sitting on the timber as this will cause damage when it is absorbed by the timber. Instead use a light damp mop as part of your regular clean to get the best results and maintain your beautiful timber floors.


Mix one part white vinegar to four parts warm water (250ml vinegar to 1 litre warm water) and lightly spray on a microfiber mop for the best finish. You can also add a couple of drops of essential oil to the mixture if you’d like to have a nice fragrance throughout your home. Open doors and windows to ventilate the air and ensure the timber floor dries well.

Tiled Floors

Tiled floors are very durable and give a very sleek, modern look to any home. When maintained regularly your tiles and grout will keep looking new over time. Most tiles are made from ceramic or porcelain and are very easy to keep clean. Firstly sweep or vacuum your tiled floors and then proceed with the following natural cleaning solution.


Fill your mop bucket with warm water and add quarter cup of white vinegar. Use a clean mop (our favourite is a microfiber mop), wring out as much water for a streak free finish. You can also add your favourite essential oil to the mixture if you want to leave your home smelling fresh and nice. If you have heavily soiled floors or dried stains you can add a few drops of dishwashing liquid to the mixture for more effective cleaning. Remember to change your water frequently while mopping for the best finish. Open doors and windows to ventilate the air and allow for faster drying.

Note: avoid using sponge mops as these tend to retain more water and the water gets pushed into the grout lines.

Carpets & Rugs

Carpets are cosy and comfy and normally used in bedrooms and living rooms. Rugs are also a great way to add warmth to floorboards or tiled areas, however carpets and rugs are renowned for collecting dust, crumbs and dirt particles.

As part of your regular clean vacuum the carpet or rug and if you want to give it a spruce up or have some stains to clear then try this natural solution.


Mix equal parts of white vinegar and water. Spray on stain and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes before scrubbing clean with a soft brush. If you have a stubborn stain try adding 1 or 2 drops of dishwashing liquid to the mixture and scrub gently with a soft brush. Wipe clean with a clean cloth and allow to dry completely by opening windows to ventilate the room.

Note: try the solution on a small patch of carpet to ensure it does not discolour prior to using.

Let’s take a closer look at why the technology behind these products is so effective and why the products work so effectively…

Bio Bacterial & Enzyme Technology  

These biological cleaning products are made up of “good” living bacteria to break down and liquefy soils such as fat, proteins, carbohydrates and grease while simultaneously eliminating odours. 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.

Bacteria use the enzymes they produce to break down complex waste into simple compounds, which it then consumes, thereby completely eliminating grime, waste and odours.

The bio bacterial cleaner makes cleaning quicker and easier. The product keeps on working even after you have finished cleaning.

As always, nature provides the answers. For good health and a naturally clean home, look no further. To purchase or learn more about these products click here.
