House Cleaning Weekly or Bi-Weekly?

House Cleaning Weekly or Bi-Weekly?   Why One is Better than the Other? 

(and not just the obvious reason!) 

Whether you currently have house cleaning weekly, bi-weekly (every two weeks), once a month, or you are trying to decide on how often to have a company come in, let us share with you some of the reasons why more is better! Obviously, the more often a cleaning company comes into your home, the more often you get that “ahhh!” feeling of a fresh and sparkling space. However, there are other great benefits as well.

House Cleaning Weekly or Biweekly

 1.  Shop for Less Cleaning Products

While having 4 cleans a month vs. one or two will cost more, don’t forget that you will be saving money by not having to purchase as many cleaning supplies yourself. At Elite Home Cleaning, we supply everything we need to freshen, clean, and sanitize your home. However, if we are only coming once a month then you will most likely be purchasing quite a few of your own cleaning supplies and equipment to keep up on the house in-between our visits. However, if we are coming weekly, then this will drastically cut down on the items you need to worry about buying for yourself.

2.  Keeps You on Your Toes

We know that life gets crazy. It also gets cluttered. Its common, if you have an existing cleaning company, to spend the night before running around trying to pick-up items off the floor and get laundry or papers sorted so that counters are empty. You want your cleaning company actually being able to get to the surfaces they need to clean. This is important. You are paying good money for the technicians to clean, not straighten up. If you have a cleaning company coming in once a week, then there is way less time for things to get messy. That means, the night before a clean, you may only need to spend a few minutes picking up a few things from the week. This will create a regular flow to your week and you will begin to see the changes in how efficiently your household flows.

 3.  A Healthier Home

With a weekly clean, not only will you enjoy coming home to a visually clean and neat home each and every week, you will also reap the benefits of a healthier home. With a thorough cleaning each week of all surfaces in the home, your cleaning techs will be leaving behind a more germ-free environment. This equals less sick days for the family; and that in turn can mean more money in your pocket too.

 4.  A Happier You!

Research shows that when we are in surroundings that are clean and organized, it has a direct connection to our mood. We feel more productive, happier, calmer, and more accomplished. Let Elite Home Cleaning help you create that environment in your home.

There are many types of services out there, from professional local companies, nationwide chains, and even individuals.  We believe it is important to know who you are entrusting your home, and family, to. That is why we would like to share with you the Top 8 Reasons why Elite Home Cleaning is the perfect choice for your home cleaning needs.

1)  Experience

    Elite Home Cleaning is a female-owned, family-run, community-based business. 
     With over 16 years experience, you can rest assured that your home is in good
     hands. We are proud to be serving the families of Rochester Hills, and its 
     surrounding communities.
 
2)  Reliability

     home, you will be glad you did! We can set-up a recurring cleaning schedule
     so that you can relax and let us take care of your cleaning needs. We
     will be there on the same day each visit, so that you will know exactly when 
     to expect us. 
     
3) Expertise

5) Bonded and Insured
     Beyond being trustworthy, you can rest easy knowing that our company is fully 
 
6) Teamwork
     One great advantage of choosing a company over an individual is the element of 
     teamwork. We have a wonderful team of highly-trained cleaning technicians. So, if  
     someone happens to get sick (as does happen), we have other technicians on 
     hand ready to step in. This helps us avoid unnecessary cancellations. If you are

7) Worry-free
     Once you choose Elite, we take care of the rest. We will do a walk-through of your 
     home, or an over-the-phone consultation, to assess your needs and create a 
     house-cleaning plan tailored to you. Then we will select a day and time-frame for 
     our cleaning technicians to arrive. We bring all of the cleaning supplies and 
     equipment. So… you don’t have to worry about a thing! We are also flexible, so if 
     you have a particular vacuum or cleaning product you would like us to use instead,
     we are happy to oblige.
 
8) Friendly
     Our cleaning technicians truly love to clean! Many of them find it not only 
     rewarding, but also relaxing. They are happy to be in your home helping to make a
     difference for you and your household! Together, as client and technician, we make
     a great team. We look forward to working with you to take care of all of your
     cleaning concerns and needs.

 

 

 

House Cleaning Tips Allergy and Asthma Sufferers

Are you one of the millions that suffer from allergies?  Managing triggers outside of your home can be difficult and are often beyond your control.  Lucky for you, allergies and asthma triggers within the home can be greatly reduced with the right house cleaning strategies.  

Try our house cleaning tips to target areas of your home that may be making your symptoms worse.

Vacuum Regularly

If you have carpeted rooms and/or pets, then vacuuming regularly can greatly cut down on allergens. Some of the “nasties” that can settle in your carpets and rugs are pet dander and dust mites. Running the vacuum once or twice a week will help clean these areas. Don’t forget to vacuum under the bed! Sleeping over a very dusty area can greatly increase your allergy symptoms.

Go the extra mile and use a vacuum that has a HEPA filter — or high-efficiency particulate filter. 

Choose rugs that are washable so that they can be laundered on a regular basis.

If you have a lot of carpeting, it may be worth considering removing the carpets and replacing with an easier to maintain and clean hard surface floor.

Launder Linens Often

Make sure to not only change your bedding regularly, but also to wash them in hot water to eliminate allergy irritants. This includes bath towels as well. Just because you can’t see the dust on your linens, doesn’t mean it’s not there!

Clean your Vents and Ductwork

The National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years. If there is a build-up of debris, dirt, mold, or other irritants it can be extremely beneficial for your health to have them routinely inspected and cleaned.

Choose your Cleaning Products Wisely

Many of the most common cleaners contain harsh chemicals that can trigger allergy and asthma symptoms. There are better cleaning products for asthma sufferers out there. many are fragrance-free and eco-friendly. At Elite Home Cleaning, we choose to use products that effectively clean while also being healthier for you and your family. See what house cleaning services we offer here.

Control Moisture in Damp Areas

Mold thrives in moist and damp areas of the home. But did you know dust is also a fan of high humidity levels?

To help minimize moisture and humidity:

  • Run the exhaust fan while showering 
  • Keep a dehumidifier in basement areas to reduce dampness
  • Regularly inspect areas for signs of mold and mildew

We hope you find value and your family benefits from our house cleaning tips!

The Benefits of a Recurring House Cleaning Service

If you are like most people, then cleaning your home is pretty far down on the list of things you enjoy doing. We all know that living in a clean and sanitized home is important, but the process of keeping it that way is a chore that many people dread and put off.   This is why we decided to tell you about the benefits of a recurring house cleaning service.

Luckily for you, there is Elite Home Cleaning. A company, and its employees, who actually love providing house cleaning services and taking care of our clients’ homes. Many of our techs not only find the process relaxing, but they also find cleaning homes satisfying and rewarding.

 Why not reap the benefits of hiring a company who can come into your home on a recurring basis (weekly, bi-weekly, even monthly) to take your house cleaning off your hands. You and your family will be so thankful for the ease and convenience this service will provide. 

 Let’s get into the benefits of hiring a house cleaning company. 

 1.  Get your Family Time Back

For starters, we all know how busy family life is. If you are a parent, you are the pro at taking care of your children and their schedules/ Why not let the cleaning professionals at Elite Home Cleaning give you back some of that valuable parenting time? Wouldn’t it be lovely, once a week, to come home to a clean, freshly scrubbed, thoroughly vacuumed, and sanitized home? You can check that immediately off your to-do list without lifting a finger! Then you can focus on the lives of your littlest family members.

 2. Have a Healthier home

Another advantage to having a recurring house cleaning service is that your home will be healthier, not just cleaner. We want the best for our family’s health and nothing is better at maintaining a healthy environment than having our technicians come in regularly to make sure that your home is safe and healthy for you and your family. 

3.  Get Organized 

 Beyond wanting a clean home, we all wish for a household that runs smoothly and is well-organized. It is hard to begin the process of purging and organizing when a home is dirty. However, once your home is clean and sparkling, we are certain you will be inspired to tackle those other household tasks, like getting the closets organized, or painting the guest room, etc. 

4.  Relax 

Besides freeing up your time to devote to parenting, how about just some extra “do nothing” time! When you hire Elite Home Cleaning to take care of your house cleaning chores, you now have time to do whatever it is that makes YOU happy. Go ahead and binge-watch Netflix, take a long walk in Stony Creek Metropark with your spouse, grab a drink with your friends, get a massage, take a nap with your dog, read a book, start a new hobby, etc.

By making the choice to hiring a recurring cleaning service you have not only given yourself a consistently clean house, you have also given yourself the gift of time. 

You work hard…let us work hard of house cleaning for you.  

 

 

 

Back-to-School House Cleaning Season

back to school house cleaning notebook

Welcome to Fall and back to school house cleaning season! For many reasons, this is an exciting but somewhat stressful time of year for most people. While the end of summer can signal an end to beach days, barbecues, and not watching the clock, it also signals the start of cider mills, sweater weather, back-to-school… and busy schedules!  

 Just as we transition from one season to another, our homes also need to transition. 

What are some ways we can help our homes stay clean, organized, and most importantly, healthy during the Fall season? We have some helpful tips! 

1) The most straight-forward approach to helping your family stay on top of keeping your home clean, healthy, and organized is to hire professionals who know how to do just that! At Elite Home Cleaning we have over 15 years of experience behind us. We are here to help you balance your busy Fall schedule and actually enjoy this beautiful season. We can give you back your valuable time by coming into your home weekly, bi-weekly, or even monthly to clean and sanitize…and even help you get organized! 

2) When our kiddos go back to school…so do the germs! Unfortunately, these germs make their way back to the rest of your family. Help your family stay healthy this season by maintaining a healthy, sanitized environment at home. 

3) As new schedules and routines are getting established, this is the perfect time to set new routines for your home. This is a great chance to set a new chore calendar for your children, create designated times and places for homework, and enlist the family in setting goals for the new school year. As we refocus our attention this Fall, it really is a wonderful time to introduce some new “best practices” for our family and home. 

4) Autumn is the perfect time to empty out the fridge and pantry to do a proper cleaning of all its nooks and crannies. These areas of our home are so vitally important as they house the food we are feeding our bodies. Make sure that these areas are clean and in working order and also take this opportunity to toss out expired food. Refill them with healthy snack and lunch box choices. 

5) Back-to-school house cleaning usually really shows its face in the mudroom! But, this is a great and relativity quick room to organize. Add a bench with shelves to help gather up those shoes. Hooks and more hooks will keep backpacks, coats, purses, dog leashes, etc. off of the floor. We also love labeled storage bins for sports equipment. “A place for everything and everything in its place.” This motto will help you keep your sanity! 

We hope you enjoyed our back to school house cleaning tips!

 

 

 

Why We Use Microfiber Cloths To Clean Your Home

Microfiber is a polyester and nylon fiber. The fiber is about 1/16ththe size of a human hair!  When multiple microfibers are woven together into a fabric, they create a net-like surface that can absorb and trap dirt and moisture better than ordinary cotton. Their many fibers can get into pores and crevices traditional cleaning tools can’t and pick up microscopic dirt and germ particles, allowing for a deeper more thorough clean. The nylon in the microfiber cloths also has a static charge that pulls in and traps the dirt until the fiber is washed.

At Elite Home Cleaning, our technicians use microfiber to keep your house looking incredible. There are numerous advantages that microfiber cleaning cloths have over ordinary cloths. Listed below are some of the reasons that we choose to use this phenomenal fabric to clean your home.

 

     

    7 Advantages of Microfiber:

    1. Microfiber cloths contain more than 200,000 fibers per inch of fabric!
    2. They can absorb, on average, more than seven times their weight in water
    3. The combination of microfiber and water alone can eliminate up to 98.9% of bacteria from smooth surfaces
    4. Microfiber cloths can be laundered up to 500 times while maintaining its inherent structure.
    5. Environmentally friendly. Due to its long lasting nature and that it reduces the need for harmful chemicals, microfiber is an environmentally friendly choice for home cleaning
    6. Microfiber cloths are also hypoallergenic, making them safe for individuals with allergies or asthma to use
    7. Microfiber towels also don’t leave behind lint or scratch surfaces. This makes them perfect for cleaning delicate surfaces like glass or mirrors giving you a streak-free clean.
