I am open again, now that Victoria is easing their restrictions.
I will only clean houses where no one is home while I am there.
First cleans often need an extra hour, so they are a 3 hour cleans and a regular is booked in for a weekly or fortnightly after that.
I now charge $40 an hour for local Ballarat residents, if I have to go out of Ballarat you are charged a travel rate according to the time taken to get to you and back to Ballarat.
If you refer a friend and they use my services you will be charged a reduced rate of $35 per hour, but if they cancel you will be charged the normal rate.
If I am booked in for regular cleans and you cancel too often then you will be replaced, there are many people in need of help so prefer to help those that are reliable.
PLEASE TEXT ME AND I WILL CALL YOU BACK
Cleaning and Disinfection
Cleaning and disinfecting are two different processes:
Cleaning means physically removing germs, dirt and organic matter from surfaces.
Disinfecting means using chemicals or steam to kill germs on surfaces. It’s important to clean before disinfecting because organic matter and dirt can reduce the ability of disinfectants to kill germs.
A combination of cleaning and disinfection will be most effective in removing the COVID-19 virus. Cleaning reduces the soil load on the surface, allowing the disinfectant to work and kill the COVID-19 virus. Disinfectant may not kill the virus if the surface has not been cleaned with a detergent first.
This is my homemade recipe for the spray that I use at most eco-friendly cleaning jobs.
I fill a spray bottle half with methylated spirits (make sure it has the required 70% ethanol that has been proven to kill the COVID-19 virus on surfaces), 3 cap fulls of hydrogen peroxide, 10 drops of essential oil (lavender and tea tree are antibacterial), and fill the rest with water. It is recommended that this stays on a surface for 10 minutes then is wiped down with a clean dry cloth.
If you are someone that does not mind the smell of vinegar then you can use that too, it needs to be 4%. Coles sells a double strength one but I find this too over powering to use on a daily basis and on the many homes I clean in a week. So do prefer the ethanol solution I make as the alcohol smell dissipates in the air.
