Hello beautiful Ballarat residents. I have reopened again for the second time this year and are keen to help you with your domestic house cleaning needs.
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 for 2 hours. If your house is larger than the standard 3-4 bedroom home then you will usually be quoted a normal clean as being 3 hours. If you want a fortnightly clean and there is a lot to do then you will also be quoted 3 hours and not a 2 hour clean. Have a look at the regular clean page and ave a read of what I do on a regular clean.
I 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.
I supply the cleaning products that are eco-friendly. I either use vinegar and essential oils that also have a aromatherapy benefits. Like May Chang for example helps with ease of depression symptoms. The main ones I use are May Chang, Lavender, Clove Oil, Lemon Myrtle, Orange Oil, Eucalyptus and Tee Tree Oil. They all have a different use in helping people on a deeper level as well as having natural cleaning properties. Clove Oil for example kills the bacteria that allows mold to grow.
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.
