Reasons Why Singaporean Are Moving To Part Time Maid Service

Reasons Why Singaporean Are Moving To Part Time Maid Service

The choice of perusing the services of either part time maids or full time maids has always been an economic problem at its core. The very fact that someone chooses to hire a maid means that he or she perceives the benefits of hiring a maid, which is mainly the freed up time to pursue other activities instead of spending the time cleaning the house outweighs the cost of hiring the maid, which is the economic cost of the maid. Following from this cost versus benefit analysis, there seems to be a slight bias towards part time maids over full time maids.

The first and most obvious reason is that the economic cost of hiring a part time maid is lower than a full time maid. The most explicit cost is the monetary cost of the maid, the wage, accommodation and food. Evidently, if the maid works part time you only pay her per hourly rate or a fixed amount. However if the maid is full time, you have to pay her more, as she is available round the clock, you have to feed her and have a room for her to stay in your house as well. All these are extra costs incurred. Next, is the more subtle cost, which is the higher propensity for the full time maid to have misconducts or breach of contract.

Generally speaking, based on history, a full time maid has a higher probability of stealing possessions from the employers’ house and running away. Also, they may have higher probability of getting impregnated and forced to be deported back to their home country and discontinue their work. Of course, these are just generalizations but there seems to be a higher number of these cases occurring with full time maids rather than part time maids. Also, greater costs may be incurred in installing CCTVs to monitor the house in the event that the employer does not trust the full time maid.

The next reason is that part time maids are more efficient compared to their full time counterparts. Broadly speaking, most part time maids are experienced full time maids who have been cleaning the houses for years and know what way to best clean the house. Furthermore, owing to the nature of their work, a fixed amount of time spent cleaning the house, they are to fully maximize the time spent in order to clean the house thoroughly to the employer’s standard, whereas the full time maids have the leisure of more time to do so, which may lead to complacency and inefficiency.

Thirdly, due to the changing societal and family structures, most families do not maximize their spending in a full time maid. Young families now do not have too many children to look after and their main concern is the cleanliness of the house. Furthermore, most young people are putting off marriage and children which results in a decline in the need for a full time maid.

In conclusion, there seems to be more advantages to hiring a part time maid. However, the choice should ultimately be made to be customized and suit the employers’ needs.

Domestic House Cleaning – A Need More Than A Must

Domestic House Cleaning – A Must More Than A Need

Home should be a place of rest and relaxation after a hard day’s work for the modern career man or woman. Unfortunately, more often than not, there is no such luxury. Housekeeping is a necessity and a neglected household inevitably loses its warmth and comfort. Eating out of take-away boxes and accumulation of dust and grime are sure signs of a lifestyle that is lacking in care.

No matter how much we hope for it, household chores do not do themselves. And we cannot always rely on inanimate robots, machines and other technologies to do proper dusting, cleaning and cooking. What we CAN do, however, is to get a pair of helping hands. Domestic help is a brilliant solution to your housekeeping woes and frustrations.

And yes, employing a live-in maid may not be suitable for everyone. Some lack the living space, some wish for privacy, some simply want to avoid the hassle of paperwork and preparation. We understand that letting a complete stranger live in your house may be a daunting thought. But employing a live-in domestic helper is pass. Increasingly, families are relying on part-time maids to fulfill their household needs. Not only can you skip the tedium of having an additional person living under your roof, part-time maids are assigned to suit your specific needs. Being temporary aids, their capabilities are assessed and are carefully matched to your household, based on what you and your family require. If you have a party to prepare for and need an excellent cook, we will recommend domestic helpers who are equipped with culinary skills. Need a nanny to look after your children? We will assign someone experienced in the care of children. If you need someone adept in ironing, dusting or washing, we will find you the perfect fit.

Part-time maids are employed based on an hourly rate, and for cleaning services, rates are also dependent on the size of your house. Based on the size of your residence, we will recommend employing more than one part-time maid for maximum efficiency. You may engage the part-time maid once a week, twice a week or on an everyday basis depending on your personal preference.

Services on weekends and public holidays are understandably costlier but still affordable at an additional $20 per session. During our peak period in January, a 20% surcharge is included.
If any accidents are to occur during the course of housecleaning in your house, the maid will be insured by the company's insurance protection.  All part-time maids are given the proper and necessary training to give you the quality service you need.

 In this way, we serve as a reliable agent between our part-time maids and our clients. However, we do not believe in charging agent fees or registration fees on top of the cost of the service.
Do note that all cleaning products and cleaning materials are to be provided by clients. However, arrangements for cleaning materials can be made with us at an additional charge.

Domestic help does not necessarily include heavy paperwork and uncomfortable changes to your present lifestyle.

To add on to the workload which they already have, people return home to find their house dirty or messy, which means time out of work has to be spent on cleaning their house and doing household chores. This causes people to try and leverage time by employing maids and cleaners to do the house cleaning and household chores for them, leaving them with more time to pursue their leisure activities and time for rest.

Thus, in recent times, people are finding innovative ways of finding a balance of costs, benefits and time saving strategy in the form of employing part time cleaners.

Part time cleaners offer the flexibility of cost and time as they get paid according to the number of hours they spend cleaning, normally being anywhere between 4 to 8 hours. This differs significantly from full time maids as they stay at your house, consume your food and still get paid doing so. Also, you have the option of choosing when to employ their services whenever you need them, and you can set a fixed repeated time, say weekly or monthly for them to go to your house and clean it. Furthermore, part time cleaners usually do many part time cleaning jobs, meaning to say they are probably experienced in cleaning a wide variety of houses and different kinds of cleaning jobs. Being so, they are pretty experienced cleaners and usually efficient in cleaning as well due to the short period of time they are employed to clean at each house.

After weighing the pros and cons of the various options available and deciding upon employing the services of part time cleaners, the next question will be to ask where to find trained part time cleaners in Singapore?

Who will be responsible should the part time maid injured herself during her course of work?

Who will be responsible should the part time maid injured herself during her course of work?

Domestic helpers are indeed a great help to families, they alleviate the otherwise heavy workload of the women of the house, especially if she is holding a full time job.  Part-time domestic helpers are adept in cleaning the house as well as your precious belongings at home e.g. furniture, equipment etc.  With their experience, they would also sometimes be able to advise the employers on how to maintain the house. 

Whilst the work of part-time domestic helpers within a home are generally safe, at times they may expose themselves to risks e.g. when cleaning windows in high rise buildings or cleaning anything that requires them to climb the ladders e.g. cleaning ceiling lights or tall cabinets.  They may fall from heights, within the house e.g. from ladders or they may slip and fall on slippery grounds as they go about washing the house.  There is also a possible risk of part-time domestic helpers being beaten by pets when cleaning their cages.

Who will be responsible should the part-time domestic helper injure herself in the course of her work? Although as an employer you should keep your home safe from possible mishaps, the part-time domestic helper is also responsible to exercise the necessary care as to not harming herself in anyway when performing her work, as an employer could not be assisting or supervising her at most times.  If you have enlisted the help of a free-lance domestic helper who is likely to be those who are ex-foreign domestic helpers or foreign housewives who need the extra income, on an ad hoc basis, then you would unlikely have spelt out the terms and conditions when engaging them.  In the event of injury arising from doing domestic work at your home, the issue of whose liability and who to bear the medical expenses would become an issue to grapple with.  

However, if you have employed the part-time domestic helper from a reputable company, and signed a contract with them, the company not only ensures that the helpers provide reliable and responsible services, the rights and obligations would also have been clearly spelt out. Further, such company should have already bought the necessary insurance to cover the domestic helper in the unfortunate event of mishaps.  This is similar to the case of employing a full time foreign domestic worker (FDW), where an employer is required by the Ministry of Manpower to purchase personal accident insurance policy for the FDW.

Engaging a domestic helper is to help you and not to give you more problems.  So to avoid the unfortunate event of part-time domestic helpers injuring themselves whilst cleaning your home and you needing to be involved in the tussle of who should be liable for the medical expenses etc., engage part-time domestic helper from a company that has already covered the domestic helpers with the appropriate insurance.  In this way, you can go on with your daily work, business or activities with your worries laid to rest so that you can face each day with renewed strength and peace of mind.

Why Choose a Professional Cleaning Company?

Why Choose a Professional Cleaning Company?

With families going for dual income these days, cleaning of the home is mostly outsourced to others to ensure the cleanliness of the house yet giving the owners a chance to rest on their off days instead of having to allocate duties to each family member depriving them the opportunity to recharge or even to spend some quality family time together. Their home will be upkeep so that health will not be compromised by having to live in a filthy and pest infested house that the busy city dwellers have failed to maintain.

While we are spoilt for choices as to whether to use a maid, we need to also understand that there is hidden cost such as maid’s food and necessities incurred when one chooses to get a full-time domestic helper. Not to forget mentioning the upfront administrative fee one has to put up, one has to arrange a room for the maid to stay. When the maid is sick, there will be no others to replace her duties and employers need to pay the addition medical expenses for the maid. When a maid leaves, there is a window period when the family will lost the domestic help and there need to be an alternative arrange to ensure the cleaning of the house and other chores are completed in the absence of a new maid. If coordination permits, there might be an overlapping, double paying of wages for the handover of the new and the old maid, which to some employers are not a very ideal situation as well.

If one opts to have a regular freelance cleaner, similar problem arises when the cleaner is going away or when sickness renders her unfit for work. When she resigns, one needs to go hunting for a new cleaner and there will be a need to retrain or inform what the things to be done to the new helper one engage. Please be noted that, engaging illegal freelance cleaner, you are putting yourself in a risk of being fined.

However, if one chose a professional cleaning company, the above problem will not arise as the company would have a pool of well-trained helpers thus customer’s interest will not be compromised when any one helper is not able to tend to her duties. With a contract in place, a helper would be allocated to you and even if the helper is not a regular one, the company would have briefed them on the job scope, saving the home owners the necessity to teach and train the helper assigned. Details of the individual household needs would have been on record and if there is any feedback on the standard of work delivered, it would have been easier to speak to a company representative than to tell the individual helper who might take immediate offence to any suggestions or comments given.

In the event the company changes hands, the contract is still valid and the new business owner will continue with the contract thus there will be no lapse in the supply of a domestic helper. Have your made up your mind which suits you better? A Professional Cleaning Company or engaging a freelance cleaner or a maid is more appealing?

Home Cleaning Services – Window Cleaning

Home Cleaning Services – Window Cleaning

Clear, sparkling-clean windows can give your home and offices a newer and flattering look.  An enhanced appearance also can raise the market value of your property if you intent to sell or let it out.  Another beneficial yet often unnoticed advantage is the indoor lighting energy saving that you will see on your electrical bills.

Dirt, when accumulated into layers, can develop into water stains that cannot be easily removed without special equipment and methods.  Under the sun, dust also accumulates and becomes solidified. As time goes by, this stubborn “solidified dust” gets more difficult to rid off and permanently clouds the window, causing the glass surface to both lose its luster and smoothness.

Looking back, window cleaning has indeed come way a long from mere soaps, water and rags. Rags used to leave traces on glasses, soap seeped into openings, and un-removed water stains clouded panes.  Today, window cleaning has been made much easier and efficient with better tools and innovations, leaving you with lesser streaks and yet spotless gleaming reflections.

House Cleaning Company often recommends that window cleaning be carried out on a regular basis. It was a household core that most families undertook some time ago, until job commitments forced us to drift away from it. Clearly, it is no longer a joyful thing that we used to appreciate. Need not worry however, as today, there is an entire industry of people who spend their entire lives perfecting this art, and are most happy to offer their services and knowledge to you.

Residential Services
A good house cleaning company will have the rights tools and knowledge to perform the necessary tasks (clean windows, tracks and frames) efficiently. While some would use wipers on extendable equipment, some merely use easy pressurized water with a delicate brush.  Most would prefer not to use strong detergents that are not environmental friendly.

Commercial Services
Services can range from contemporary soap washing to more laborious works like construction clean-ups, frame cleaning, stain removing, etc.  Work-sites can be from homes to offices found in low and dangerous mid-rise or high-rise buildings,

Here are some cautions to exercise when engaging professional services:
1. Your house cleaning company has to be insured. Accidents do happen even to well experienced professionals.  In such situation, it is better to be sure than sorry: don’t end up being held liable for any misfortunes that may happen.

2. Your house cleaning company should come with good reviews.  They should, on top of providing a good job, also ensure that your property is not upset in the course of it. 

3. Only environmental friendly products should be used.  Some cleaning products are so strong that they can adversely affect one’s health.  Some are potentially harmful to plants.

4. They should be professional enough to deliver what’s promised timely and competently. They should also be willing enough to put things back on track.

5. Get written estimates before giving the go-sign.  It the asking is too good to be true, and then it probably is. Ask for what you are paying.

Great thanks to this exclusive group of cleaners for diligently taking up this skill knowing that most of us hate doing it. They sure offer us alternatives to use our time productively.

Why Professional Cleaning Company?

Why Professional Cleaning Company?

Cleanliness is something we have to do daily as this will ensure that it will keep us healthy, productive and it looks tidy. Cleaning however can take up a huge amount of time and will hamper many of our productive time be it at home or at work. Here are a few reasons why a professional cleaning company could be one of your considerations for both home and work.

Like it is mentioned above, hiring a professional cleaning company will ensure that you will free up time for more important things. Having a family at home and a work at the office is demanding on an working adult, thus it is important to free up time for your family and your children. This could benefit not only you as an adult by spending a huge portion of time with the people you care, but research has also shown that it aid in the development of your children and ensure that kinship is highly valued in a hectic lifestyle in Singapore environment. Knowing your children is closer to you also ensure that there are lesser unnecessary leave you have to take to meet up with the school for a complaining session which could just bag that promotion you are eyeing for.

A cleaning company is also inexpensive depending on the things that require their attention. A general clean-up once or twice a week in a normal HDB flat will not pinch too much off your pay-check while ensuring you have a comfortable home to return to. This also saves money from all those cleaning injuries which you may sustain as a sedentary worker like you take on such a challenging task of cleaning up the whole house over the weekend. All the money that is potentially spent nursing those injury could be better channeled to make your life more fruitful with a professional cleaning company holding down the fort on cleaning for you.

The next thing a cleaning company is useful is to keep everyone healthy. A professional cleaning company would usually have a certain amount of years of experience including a wide expertise on what product is suitable for an office or a home. This will ensure that your family is not only kept safe from harmful virus and bacteria lying around the house due to a lack of cleaning, but also make sure that the chosen cleaning agents are suitable for daily or weekly use and that it itself will not harm the people coming into contact with the environment.

Lastly, the above factors can also come from having a residential maid but a professional cleaning company ensures that you are given the privacy and space you need. A cleaning company usually come in and does the job while you are at yours and leave before you are back. Moreover, if you are either unsatisfied or disapprove of a certain cleaner, you may do a request with the company and more often than not, this could be arranged.

Do We Need To be At Home When House Cleaning Service?

Do We Need To be At Home When House Cleaning Service?

In today's busy economy, more and more homeowners are turning to professional cleaning services for their home. Although they can manage their time well enough to squeeze in a couple of hours to clean their carpeted rooms or curtains and walls, it still makes sense to hire professionals at least once a year to do a thorough job that ordinary domestic cleaning appliances cannot handle.

Before we proceed to hire professionals, we need to do some basic shopping. With print advertisements, online advertisements, word of mouth recommendations and many other forms of publicity, how do we choose a good, affordable and reliable cleaning agency? Do we need to be home when a cleaning service starts? What contractual obligations and limitations do we have to bear in mind if anything goes wrong during the cleaning?

Read on to find out:

The flip answer to the difficult question of whether we should be home when cleaning starts is: Yes, but not necessarily. It is definitely good to have someone home to supervise and monitor the cleaning activities. It does not have to be you or anyone who is too busy to stay home for a few hours.
But matters can be more complicated in your household situation. Who should be appointed to be present? Ideally, you or the main owners of your home should be the people taking charge of the cleaning administration. But you or the other decision makers may not be able to take half a day of annual leave or time off just to be around.

Great if there someone monitoring the cleaning work. This person will make sure that the cleaning professionals know what to do, what to avoid, what special needs or requests you have, what hidden dangers or difficulties lurk in your home, and whether their progress is meeting with expectations.
Just remember that being present to supervise the workers does not give us any reason to impede or distract them! Here are some do’s and don’ts to make the cleaning work smooth and pleasant for both parties:

1.    DO be precise and firm on what work should be done, and what to be meticulous about.
2.    DON’T be uncertain or change your mind as the work progresses, making the workers undo or redo things just because you were unclear or undecided about earlier.
3.    DO be courteous and diplomatic when barking orders and requests at all times.
4.    DO make sure that all chargeable fees and terms of service are clear and understood BEFORE the work starts, to avoid possible disputes or misunderstandings.
5.    DON’T block the way when monitoring, and DON’T make a nuisance of yourself by fussing over temporary messes that are inevitable when professionals use bulky equipment.
6.    Finally, DO make casual conversation and small talk with the cleaners before and after the work is done!

Hope you will be a happy employer of cleaning services with these tips, and may your home be clean, tidy, dust free and a joy to dwell in!

Laundry & Dry Cleaning in Singapore

With the growing affluence of Singaporeans and increasingly busy schedules, laundry pickup and delivery service is gradually becoming a necessity rather than a luxury.   The growing affluence of the population means people are able and more willing to afford better quality clothing, household items and travel more.  This translates to a greater need for laundry services as better quality fabrics – be it fashion apparels, drapery, bedding, household items, winter wear – all require tender loving care from quality and trusted laundry experts. 

Another phenomenon leading to the rising popularity of laundry pickup and delivery service is the influx of foreign talent.  A large proportion of the foreign professionals working here live alone in small apartments and are likely to require convenient laundry services.

In addition, the rise of the Generation Y population is Singapore will also contribute to the demand of this service.  This Generation of the population is less likely to perform domestic tasks and are very adept home shoppers.  They engage in a lot of online purchases and hence, will more likely prefer the pickup and delivery laundry service as opposed to having to do the laundry themselves or having to take the items to the laundry shops.

A laundry pickup and delivery service is very convenient as we generally face busy and stressful schedules coping with work, family and other chores at home.  They can save a lot of time by conveniently letting someone else do work – be it normal washing and ironing or for items requiring specialized tender loving care.  Why spend time on washing, ironing and folding laundry when there is always something else better to do with your valuable time? Use the time to rest, re-energize yourself, and engage in sports and leisure activities or just bond with loved ones and friends.

For people who do not drive or own a car, having to carry bags full of items to and from the laundry shop can be a mammoth task.  Having to lug the load of laundry on the constantly crowded public transport, or having to pay for a taxi ride just to take the laundry to and from a laundry shop can be a stressful, frustrating and expensive task. Furthermore, laundry shops are generally not in the heart of housing developments and especially for residents of private estates and high-end residential areas, a door-step pick-up and delivery service is especially essential, or, one might say ‘god-sent’. 

With a laundry pickup and delivery service, all you have to do is to arrange for pickup and delivery at a time most convenient to you and everything will be done without lifting a finger or stepping out of your home!  Absolutely hassle-free and time-saving – just put your dirty laundry in a bag and they come back professionally cleaned, pressed and nicely packaged!

What is Laundry Dry Cleaning?

What is Laundry Dry Cleaning?

Laundry drying cleaning is a process of using chemicals to clean the clothes. The word “dry” actually indicates the use of chemicals without water consumption. The chemicals used may contain harmful substances to the body so careful use of them should be observed. However, more environmentally cautious dry cleaning agents are being used now in the market.

People usually send their delicate clothes only for dry cleaning or clothes with lots of embellishments that cannot be washed easily with water and laundry detergents. Tuxedos, night gowns are popular dry cleaning items as they are worn with care and wringing of them is thus avoided that will damage the quality of such garments.

The process of dry cleaning goes like this:
First of all, clothes are placed in a dry cleaning washing machine using solvents for dry cleaning. Therefore the process is not completely dry but no water used instead.
Next, the clothes start to roll inside like normal clothes washing but with dry air directed into them to further cleaning them with care.

The dry cleaning process can be repeated for hard to manage clothes or stains that are still remained in the first run of it. So every time, the dry cleaning solvent will mix with clothes and slowly vaporized while clothes are being tended inside the dry cleaning machine.

Dry cleaning is meant to be used for prolonging the life span of your delicate clothes. Thus fading of colors and shrinking of clothes should not happen for any dry cleaning processes.

When customers collect their dry cleaning items, those clothes are covered with plastic to protect them but usually we are not told to remove them when we bring them home. These plastic covers accumulate moisture actually and the smell of the dry cleaning solvent may remain in it causing the clothes to fade in colors. After that, much care should be taken to hang them with more expensive hangers such as those solid curved oak or wood hangers contoured to keep your clothes long-lasting.

The discovery of dry cleaning method has a very interesting story; it was actually found by accident by a Frenchman in the 19th century. When this Frenchman, Mr. Jean Baptiste Jolly, first saw his clothes covered with kerosene by his maid unintentionally, instead of fearing the damage of the clothes, the spilled kerosene miraculously restored the clothes with amazing cleaning quality. Later on, the dry cleaning process and solvents used undergone several stages that slowly become what we have now in our modern society.

Nowadays, safer dry cleaning agents such as diluted carbon dioxide are used to protect our environment instead. So the frequent use of such dry cleaning solvents is not an issue for green lovers anymore.
