Does Your Office Look Worse Than You Think?

Commercial cleaning

If you have a small office, chances are you don't have your own cleaning staff. Hiring a full-time employee would be a waste of money, and the few hours a week you need someone to come in are not particularly tempting in this job market. You may think you are getting by with having your employees handle the janitorial work, but chances are visitors to your office are seeing something much different. Here are five areas that you are overlooking that are making your office look unkept.

Doorways

Look at the jambs of your doors and light switch panels in your offices. Doorways are common employee hangout spots. Ink, dirt and food build up slowly and often go unnoticed by office staff, but not by visitors.

Vents

Do you know when the last time someone dusted your vents was? In some offices, the answer is never. Not only are the wads of dust unsightly, they also contribute to allergies – making your workers less productive.

Chair Rails & Fixtures

Just look at that dust! Even if you don't notice it, your clients do. Grungy light fixtures, dusty chair rails and muddy kickplates are some of the first things noticed by clients trapped in your reception area.

Carpet Odors

If you've ever noticed a bit of a smell, chances are it is even more noticeable to someone who isn't in your office every day. These odors are often caused by unmaintained carpets and upholstery.

Toilets

Just wiping down the seat and bowl isn't enough. The accumulation of urine and debris around the base of the toilet is common, and often overlooked. You also need to make sure the hinges of your lids are kept clean if you don't want to offend your guests.

Small things build up over time, slipping under your radar. Your clients come into your office with fresh eyes. Hiring a cleaning contractor can be an affordable and flexible solution to keeping everybody happy. Contact Calgary Trusted Cleaners online or by phone at 403-464-4049 for a service quote today.

Study Says Hiring a Maid Service Can Make You Happier

Maid service in Calgary

A recent study suggests that you can buy happiness after all, especially if you're using your money to make time saving purchases like hiring a maid service. See why buying yourself more free time is a wise choice.

Researchers at the University of British Columbia and Harvard Business School surveyed more than 6,000 adults from Canada, the United States, Denmark and the Netherlands. They found that people who outsourced tasks they don't like reported greater life satisfaction.

On the other hand, even though having someone else clean your house can make you happier, you may be resisting the idea. Researchers found that only 2% of people would use an unexpected windfall to buy such services rather than material goods.

Obviously, many of us feel like we're being lazy if we skip certain chores or we create expectations that we have to do a task just because we’re capable of doing it ourselves. Instead, why not focus on spending your money in a way that gives you the most rewards? There's nothing lazy or irresponsible about having a maid service if it gives you time for activities you value more like playing with your children, continuing your education, volunteering in your community, developing your hobbies, or just giving yourself the down time you need to manage stress and safeguard your health.

If you've been thinking about a maid service but holding yourself back, go ahead and start making yourself happier and more fulfilled today. Calgary Trusted Cleaners is the solution to all your residential and commercial cleaning needs. Contact us for a quote today.

Residential Cleaning: Make Your Move A Lot Less Stressful

Move in / move out cleaning

It's moving day and you've got a million and one things to get done, and cleaning is the part you dread the most. Of course, if you rent, you want your security deposit back and if you're selling, you want your home to look amazing for prospective buyers, but who has the time and money to do all of that? Getting your old home into like-new condition again is a heavy task for the average Joe, but lucky for us there are professionally trained and highly qualified cleaning services in the world. Here are three reasons hiring a team of experts is a complete life saver when making a big move.

Have National Funnel Cake Day Every Day!

Everybody loves carnival food, especially funnel cake, and it only makes sense to learn how you can make it yourself so you can enjoy confectionery perfection all year long. It sounds amazing, you're right, but taking all that glucose-induced enthusiasm to your kitchen can create quite the greasy splash, and now that you've nearly put yourself into a sugar coma, a spot clean will have to do. Add up all the times you've rinsed and repeated this process and you've got an incredible amount of build-up to deal with on moving day. Who wants to do that when there are more treats that need to be had? Munch on, and let the professionals handle it.

Take a Deep Breath and Namaste Already!

You're a yoga guru and there's nothing better than aligning those chakras before settling into the new yurt, but your old abode is really bringing down your vibes because the landlord says you need to have the place sparkling clean to get your deposit back. This can be a real bummer, especially considering you've already lost out on valuable meditation time dealing with all the other aspects of your move. Nama-stay calm, and position yourself for success by contacting a professional cleaning service.

Even Scrooge McDuck Would be Impressed!

If your dream of diving into a vault filled with gold and money bags is quickly floating away due to the already huge expense of moving, adding on the high cost of cleaning supplies would completely obliterate your chances. Wouldn't it be quacktastic if you could save money and have all that cleaning done properly? Seriously, a cleaning service is very affordable and incredibly worthwhile as they already have all the supplies needed and the skillset to get a whole house deep clean.

Stress is an unfortunate part of life, but when it comes to moving, the time and money involved can be astronomical, and that is enough to send anybody over the edge. Don't let the stress of getting a thorough and deep cleaning be one of them. So, go ahead and make those funnel cakes, take all that extra time to de-stress, and watch those money bags grow while a professionally trained cleaning service does the rest.  Contact us today!
