House Cleaning During COVID-19

Hiring a House Cleaner During COVID-19

COVID-19 has brought plenty of change especially for employees and entrepreneurs. In this new normal phase, most employees work remotely at home. Everyone’s at home due to the pandemic. Where does house cleaning during COVID fit within this picture?

Keeping your house clean is the first line of defense against disease and illness, and one of the most controllable factors in keeping you and your loved ones healthy!

However, you might not have the time or energy for house cleaning. In that case, hiring someone to do the house cleaning for you can be a huge relief. But is it safe to do that during COVID-19?

There is no definite answer as to when exactly is it safe to let someone inside the confines of your house. Factors differ in different areas and situations. In order to address this, here are the things to consider in making the decision.

Check state and local stay-at-home guidelines

Precautions During COVID-19

Know your area’s official recommendations and restrictions. Get updates if quarantine orders have been lifted. These orders may be implemented if COVID-19 cases arise.

The idea of a house cleaner in your home

Discuss with your family the idea of a house cleaning entering the home. It is always your priority to put you and your family’s safety first especially in the time of the coronavirus pandemic.

At the same time, keeping your home clean is the best protection against illness. Remember, even the more common maladies like the cold virus can make you more susceptible to something more serious like COVID-19. Homes that are not clean are known to have poor air quality — something that does not help your lungs stay healthy. Keeping your home clean and dust free is recognized as one of the best ways to prevent many illness, especially respiratory illnesses!

The health status of your family

Precautions During COVID-19

If you or someone in your family is at high-risk in contracting the coronavirus, you will want to discuss this with your house cleaners in advance so they can make the necessary preparations to ensure your safety. You may also talk with your physician regarding your plans to see if there are any additional recommendations they have for your safety.

It would be best to let your house cleaning agency know whether you or any of your loved ones have been sick in the past 48 hours to protect the cleaners they refer to your home from any risks of COVID-19.

When you schedule a house cleaning appointment with Howard’s, please let us know if you or any of your family members have been sick for the past ten days. You can also let us know of any specific personal needs. We will take note of them and inform the house cleaning professionals before they visit your home.

Our customer’s story

Maggie from Tustin shares her story of hiring Howard’s during the pandemic and how we take precautions to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

“I started working from home since June and I cannot juggle work and home. My husband helps me out with the kids. With the rising cases of COVID-19, it makes me think about the safety of my family.

Howard’s is always my go-to house cleaning referral agency. His house cleaners are professionals and always know what I want when it comes to cleanliness. They follow the guidelines the health sector implemented. I know my family and I will be safe when they clean our house.

With the pandemic, I take extra safety precautions in making sure my family and Howard’s house cleaners will not be exposed to any health risks. Howard’s always accommodates my specific needs and that’s what I love about them.”

Your home should be the safest place for you and your loved ones. That’s why Howard’s is always ready to service our customers during the pandemic.

Weekly Cleaning is Better than Monthly

Weekly Cleaning

Weekly Cleaning is Better than Monthly

Today you’ve decided to pick up the phone and schedule a cleaning appointment. All of a sudden, a thought pops in your head. Should you schedule for a monthly or weekly cleaning?

First of all, let me tell you that weekly or bi-weekly cleaning schedule is better than monthly. Let me give you the reasons as to why.

You get a refreshed weekly start

Your home stays clean and cleaner is healthier. The less frequent the cleaning… the less healthy. Firstly, I think it would be nice to come home every week to a wonderful home with that refreshing scent. Homes that smell nice have an effect towards your mood and emotions. Most of our Orange County clients like going home to a newly-cleaned. This is due to the fact that it resembles a reset to start the week anew. I hear all the time, that our Orange County clients love coming home to a newly-cleaned home. They say it feels like a reset for the week.

No worries about cleaning supplies

Weekly Cleaning

Secondly, almost all of us have wondered what kind of cleaning supplies we should use. Well, you don’t have to worry about any of that. The professional independent service providers referred by Howard’s, always bring their own eco-friendly cleaning supplies. These professionals know what to cleaning and how to clean. Some clients prefer to use their own cleaning supplies… That’s fine too. No matter what you want to be cleaned, these maids know what to do.

Easier to maintain than your weekly schedule

Weekly Cleaning

Another reason to choose a weekly or bi-weekly cleaning schedule is this: Dust and dirt never settle too long in your home. If you’re the kind of homeowner who suffers from allergic rhinitis or just doesn’t want a dusty home, this is the right schedule for you.

You see, if you pick a monthly schedule, you will be responsible for the next three weeks of making sure dust and dirt don’t accumulate. Now we wouldn’t want that. The reason why we hired a professional cleaner is to avoid doing the cleaning ourselves.

It’s a form of self-care

Weekly Cleaning

Coming home to a clean home every week can be a form of self-care because you see less clutter and more organization in your home. It is quite important for us to feel comfortable at home as this is our refuge. We somehow feel anxious and uneasy around clutter so having someone clean up every week can help in distressing.

Better deal than monthly cleaning

Prices vary when it comes to cleaning appointments. (No worries though, Howard’s House Cleaning Referral Agency is always affordable. A weekly cleaning schedule gives better value than monthly less deferred maintenance, and far more healthy living.
If you have a limited budget. Call Howard, he can help.

So there you have it. A cleaner home… is a healthier home.

Leap Day Cleaning

Leap Day

Leap Day Cleaning

Today is such an important day. Not only is it a weekend, but it is also a Leap Day. February 29 happens every four years, but exactly do we get an extra 24 hours every four years? This is because Earth’s orbit around the sun is around 365.256 days so a leap day compensates for this lag. This helps in realigning the calendar with the Earth’s position in the Solar System. With that said, I will leave the extra-scientific facts to the experts.

Anyways, today is such a blessing. We are given an extra day to do something special. In addition to that, it also lands on a Saturday. Wouldn’t it be a great idea to spend time with your family? or better yet, schedule a cleaning appointment? This can be good in giving your home that new refreshing look in time for spring break.

You can revamp your Leap Day cleaning by doing a checklist of these things you want for your home. In this way, the assigned cleaners to your appointment will know exactly what you want.

Here are the things to make your living space a brighter and refreshing home.

Redo Your Living Space

Leap Day

Firstly, you can rearrange the accents and fixtures of your home to give it a glowing happy aura. While doing so, you can vacuum the dust bunnies and other hard to reach areas. Put in new pillowcases for the sofa pillows. It would also be a good thing to move things around by placing them in new rooms.

Wash the Windows, Curtains, and Blinds

Leap Day

Let the light shine through your windows! Wipe the dust from the windowsill from the remnants of snow and dirt. Experts say that windows should be cleaned once or twice a month. So now that you’ve started cleaning up the windows on the leap year, it is now easier to do. Now let’s get those windows clean up so we can see the great view from beyond.

Polish Your Wood Furniture

Leap Day

Wipe the dust of your antique wood furnishing. There are environment-friendly wood polish or even make one yourself. Now, your fixtures will look brand new.

Organize your closets

Wouldn’t it be nice to open those closets and see how organized they are? I know I would love that too. Aside from organizing the stuff in it, you can also pick out what to keep and what to get rid of. If you are going to get rid of something, pick something that hasn’t been used for six months (and not for seasonal use), you can either sell it or donate it.

Leap Day

So there you have it. I hope that helps with the rundown of how you want your home to be cleaned. Happy Leap Day and see you soon!

Open on President’s Day

President's Day

Open on President’s Day

President’s Day is the day when we honor the incumbent president and all who have served as president of the United States. Though it is to celebrate George Washington’s birthday, it is also the day we commemorate the previous and current presidents. To boot, I can think of many ways for you and your family to celebrate. Let’s take a look at the list I’ve prepared.

  1. Take a road trip of Alexandria, Virginia

President's Day

Head over to George Washington’s adopted home. Furthermore, the place celebrates Washington’s birthday the entire month of February.

  1. Fancy a Wintry Cookout

President's Day

Despite that cookouts and barbecues are meant for spring and summer, February can still be the best time to warm up the grill and put on a feast.

  1. Memorize all forty-five presidents as a game.

President's Day

This can be a fun activity for kids and even for adults to name the past presidents until the current one. You can do a pop-quiz or a contest to see who gets to name all of them correctly and in order too.

While you are doing all that, we can help out by making sure your house nice and dirt-free. You can schedule a cleaning appointment with us today!  Moreover, we are always at your service even in the holidays. Also, visit our website and fill up our contact sheet with your complete information. We will make sure to polish up every nook and cranny. We also make sure to use the most eco-friendly materials to leave a clean and healthy home.

NO SUGAR COMA FROM THE HOLIDAY BAKING

No Sugar Coma From The Holiday Baking

Now that I have come out of the holiday sugar coma it’s time to work on that resolution….. What’s more is that, my thoughts for this coming year is to downsize, and get rid of “stuff”.  A dear friend reminded me that “the richest is not who has the most, rather than who needs the least.”

Holiday

In that thought, I have decided to not acquire unneeded “things”.  There is a sense of freedom in purging.  I had Howard’s House Cleaners in Laguna Woods while they were cleaning to help me sort through things I wanted to get rid of.  We had a fun time and laughed as the pile got bigger.  Happy New Year and I hope you all made great memories.

POST THOUGHTS THANKSGIVING

Well, it’s the week before Thanksgiving and all my friends are trying to eat less in order to be able to pig out on the big turkey day. Personally, I don’t think that actually works for me. My week before is trying to keep my house clean after Howard’s House Cleaning team was here. With family coming I want them to think I keep a sparkling clean house at all times. I have the maids concentrate on the tile floors and of course the bathrooms. It doesn’t have to last it’s all about first impression. Once the grown kids get here it all goes to hell anyway. Funny how adult kids come home and revert to the teenage years and think Mom will pick up after them. All kidding aside I love having them for a few days….emphasis on a few days! Now to do my grocery shopping list. Howard’s House Cleaning Referral Agency, Inc., located in Orange County.

LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR

I always love this time of year because of the holiday music.  Music is a universal language and can take you to another time and place with wonderful memories.  I can hear an oldies song and I am instantly in the place and time….same with Christmas music.  My favorite is Silent Night and it doesn’t matter in what language it is sung in.  My maids from Howard’s House Cleaning Referral in South Orange County walked in and started singing the carole that was playing.  We laugh and became an instant trio….this is a memory that will last forever.
