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.
