A cleaner is someone experienced in coming to your property and cleaning it. Cleaners deal with a number of different tasks including basic cleaning, spring cleans, deep cleans when you are selling or renting your home and other jobs. Cleaners will usually clean your home from top to bottom and are trained to use products and techniques to make your home as clean as possible. Some cleaners will specialise in cleaning textiles like carpets and curtains or will employ someone, especially to clean your windows or hard-to-reach places like ovens or shower drains. These professionals are able to advise you on the best products to use to clean your home and what will be both cost-effective and long-lasting. If you are selling your house and need a deep clean or even want to employ a regular cleaning service, it would be good to give the project to the expertise of a professional cleaner.

How to hire a cleaner?

Hiring a cleaner is one of those jobs that needs to be done quickly and efficiently so you should put some research into who you should hire. It is a good idea to get a recommendation from people you know who have had a full clean done by a cleaning company before moving or have taken on a regular cleaner recently or even ask at your local community centre. You will want to find someone with a lot of experience and who will be professional and quick in all aspects of the job.

If you cannot find a recommendation from someone you know, you should be able to find someone either online through their website or online platforms like . When you find some professionals who provide the service you need, including regular cleaning and maintenance and window cleaning and any other extra services like carpet cleaning, make sure you read any reviews featured online. A cleaner’s online presence should clearly display their qualifications, experience, what services they provide and whether they are part of an association like the Checkatrade , who have codes of conduct to reassure the customer that their members are experienced and trustworthy.

When you have found a cleaner you are happy with, arrange to meet them at your property to talk through the project you want done - including any restrictions and the timeframe - and if you have any special requests, such as carpet or window cleaning. From here, they should be able to walk you through the process of cleaning your home, advise you on making the most of your budget and give you an estimate of price and timeframe. If you are still not sure about this particular cleaner, ask if you can speak to previous clients and find out how efficiently they can get the job done onsite.

What services do cleaners provide?

Cleaners are trained in cleaning and maintaining cleanliness and tidiness inside and outside your home. Cleaners deal with a number of different tasks, including basic cleaning, spring cleans, deep cleans when you are selling or renting your home and other jobs. Others can do bigger jobs like carpet cleaning or window cleaning, graffiti removal or gutter cleaning. These professionals can be especially helpful when you are selling your home and want to impress prospective buyers. Cleaners are usually experienced and can usually advise on the best products for your home and what maintenance you will need in the future.

How much does it cost to hire a cleaner?

The cost of hiring a cleaner will be very varied on the size of the project, what products are needed and how labour intensive the job is. If you are completely deep cleaning your property, this will be a lot more expensive than a regular maintenance job. If you agree to keep on the cleaner long term, they may decide to lower the price too. It will be up to you and the individual cleaner you hire to organise a payment plan before you draw up a contract. A lot of cleaners will charge by the hour but others will have a daily or fixed fee depending on the job. Make sure you know exactly what is included in the price before you go ahead with the job as you do not want to get a nasty surprise if it does not include VAT.

What questions should I ask my cleaner?

  •      Have you done many of these jobs before?
  •     Do you do carpet cleaning or window cleaning?
  •     Have you worked on similar properties to mine?
  •     Do you work on your own or as part of a team?
  •     Will you be able to advise me on the best cleaning products to maintain my home long term?
  •     Do you provide any cleaning supplies or do I need to get these?
  •     Do you offer regular maintenance services too?
  •     Can you advise me on how to get the best out of my budget?
  •     How long will the job take?
  •     Can I get a written estimate before you start the job?
  •     Does your estimate include everything - materials, labour, VAT?
  •     Do you have up-to-date paperwork and insurance?
  •     Can I speak to past clients or get references about the past work you have done?

Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning

Our Specialists will visually inspect your carpet. They will identify potential permanent stains and give you evaluation of expected results. Our cleaning equipment combined with the unique cleaning process will ensure your carpets are thoroughly cleaned.

The carpet cleaning method we use is hot water extraction, also known as steam cleaning. Almost every carpet manufacturer recommends this method. Cleaning solutions are injected deeply into the carpet at high pressure and are instantly extracted.

With the many types of carpeting made today, it is important to use a knowledgeable carpet cleaner. Many of today’s carpets contain the following materials: Nylon, Acrylic, Cotton, Silk, Sisal, Polyester, Wool, and Linen. We can care for carpets in need of special care.

The recommended carpet cleaning frequency for a residential consumer is approximately every 12 to 18 months. The recommended upholstery cleaning frequency is between 12 and 24 months.

With so many different upholstering materials from genuine leather to natural fibers, vinyl and polyesters, a variety of cleaning methods and equipment are essential for offering the best professional upholstery cleaning and maintenance service available.

All upholstery fabric will be carefully inspected prior to cleaning. We then decide on the most suitable cleaning process according to the type of material and degree of soiling. For the majority of upholstery cleaning, but not all, we use the hot water extraction method, sometimes referred to as steam cleaning. With this method we are using the most powerful and efficient equipment combined with attention to detail to make sure that we gain the ultimate upholstery cleaning results.

Some materials are best cleaned using a very low moisture process. With this method we would use dry cleaning solvents for upholstery fabric to remove any soils. Our techniques and equipment ensures that the maximum amount of soil is removed with the minimum amount of drying time.

Our carpet and upholstery cleaning process involves using detergent free, environmentally friendly solutions, which are completely safe to children and pets.

I'm here to show you a completely safe, natural and effective way to clean your oven — no harsh chemicals and no high-heat auto-cleaning with smoke detector funny business. It takes a little time and some elbow grease, but the payoff is well worth it. Plus, you most likely have everything you need to take on this project already in your cupboards.

When I first moved into my house, the oven was coated with a suspicious black, sticky grime. It was as if someone had roasted a dozen whole chickens without using a pan. My first move was to run the auto-cleaning setting (which is probably a terrible idea, since our oven is over twenty years old). This basically turns up the heat to a point where anything left inside is burnt to a crisp, which you can then wipe out once it cools. It kind of works, but in some cases actually makes everything worse, and in our case, set off the smoke detectors — most likely a red flag.

What’s the alternative? You can buy extremely harsh chemicals that will eat through any remaining debris, but the fumes are strong enough to singe off your eyebrows. The accompanying dizziness probably isn’t worth it either.

Here's you you can clean your oven naturally with a little vinegar, baking soda, and good ol' elbow grease!

How To Clean The Oven

What You Need

Baking soda
Rubber gloves
Damp dish cloth
Plastic or silicone spatula
Spray bottle
White vinegar


  • Remove the oven racks: Remove your oven racks, pizza stone, oven thermometer, and anything else you have inside the oven. Set aside.
  • Make a baking soda paste: In a small bowl, mix a 1/2 cup of baking soda with a few tablespoons of water. Adjust the ratio of both as needed until you have a spreadable paste. For me this took about 3 tablespoons of water to get the desired spreadable consistency.
  • Coat your oven: Spread the paste all over the interior surfaces of your oven, steering clear of the heating elements. I used gloves for this portion as my oven was pretty grimy. It helped me really get in there and coat the dirtiest nooks and crannies without having to worry about all that grime under my nails. The baking soda will turn a brownish color as you rub it in; it also might be chunkier in some places than others. That is fine. Just try to coat the whole oven to the best of your abilities, paying attention to any particularly greasy areas.
  • Let it sit overnight: Allow the baking soda mixture to rest for at least 12 hours, or overnight.
  • Clean your oven racks: Meanwhile, clean your oven racks. See the full cleaning tutorial here.
  • Wipe out the oven: After 12 hours or overnight, take a damp dish cloth and wipe out as much of the dried baking soda paste as you can. Use a plastic or silicone spatula to help scrape off the paste as needed. I found that the damp cloth was enough for me, but a spatula might come in handy in those hard-to- reach places.
  • Spray a little vinegar: Put a little vinegar in a spray bottle and spritz everywhere you still see baking soda residue in your oven. The vinegar will react with the baking soda and gently foam.
  • Do a final wipe down: Take your damp cloth and wipe out the remaining foamy vinegar-baking-soda mixture. Repeat until all the baking soda residue is gone. Add more water or vinegar to your cloth as needed while wiping to really get the oven clean and shiny.
  • Replace your oven racks: Replace the oven racks and anything else you keep in your oven, and you're done!
