What does tidying up have to do with it...? 💭

 The whole notion of cleaning ought to be all encompassing as the definition of cleaning can be termed the act of clearing out, organising/re-ordering, decluttering a space with the holistic aim of eliminating dust, grime, controlling infection and keeping things in order. 

Yet, in the real practice of cleaning in many realities, one may achieve clearing out yet not all the other intrinsic details- organising a space, infection control et al... due to the factors of limited time, limited human resources, work load, different personalities, lack of attention to detail and so on...

But we argue that it is an incomplete task to to clean and not apply basic tidying to the space.
Basic tidying of a space simply gives a third party the allowance to organize a space without completely changing the space.

As professional cleaners of sorts, in delivering housekeeping services, we try to ensure that we don't just confront the dirts and grimes but that we also confront things lying around just to ensure the optimal outcome of a clean and basically organised space.

Yes, tidying is "confronting yourself" yet thorough cleaning (housekeeping cleaning to be exact) must embrace some form of tidying.
The degree to which tidying can occur within a professional cleaning is argued to be dependent on the cleaning contract agreement, the duration of work conclusion agreed, the extent of privacy desired by the client, and the level of attention to detail shown by the cleaner(s).

We aren't disregarding that tidying requires a personal (me) touch yet as cleaners we believe it is a must-do yet the degree or extent of application varies.

The Squeegee - Another historical exploration...!

😁 As we keep learning, we keep sharing... Here goes our findings on the foremost tool needed for professional window cleaning- the squeegee ... (and for those who know it to be versatile beyond the norm, it also serves as a floor gathering tool). Historically , it is said that the usage of the squeegee dates as far back as the Middle ages when fishermen used the Tshaped wooden swab called the "squilgee" (close isn't?) to scrape off fish guts off their boat deck. Fast forward to 1936 , Ettore Steccone dubbed his invention of the modernised single-bladed window cleaning squeegee, the New Deal. The squeegee - Tshaped in form with either a long or short handle depending on use involves generally  placing the tool on already wet surface to wash then wipe off with its blade, and in other variants, foam padding allows for the dual function of lathering with soap then wiping. Over the years , due to technological advancements, commercial squeegees have been developed

Series 4: Vaccum cleaners! Where did they emerge from?!

😁🙌 Did you know that... Early vacuum cleaners were massive and had to be drawn by horse from door to door! Imagine...?! But, in 1907, just within the second industrial revolution, it is said that James Spangler had the brilliant idea to combine the design of the carpet sweeper with the mechanics of a vacuum, creating the earliest known version of a portable vacuum cleaner. The vacuum has perhaps evolved most significantly, marked by the creation of the first cordless, handheld mini-vacuum cleaner by Black & Decker nearly 30 years ago! From further findings, we see that the vacuum cleaner's emergence into a household dust extracting must-have, can also be connected to many great minds cutting across Engineers to Janitors who saw possibilities and brought forward their innovative thoughts into what we see as the Vacuum cleaner today (surely still evolving in ways to give the consumer a valuable experience) Basically the vacuum cleaner (once known as simply sweeper and even
