Whether you’re hosting a Chinese New Year party or not, it’s important to get your house clean in case guests pop in unexpectedly. It’s also better for health to detox your home at least once a year, especially when furnishings like curtains and carpets are concerned.
Home spring cleaning services and specialists are gaining popularity with busy Singaporean households because they’re so convenient when you have a thousand and one things to do during this festive period.
Tips before you call:
– Make a list of your highest-priority tasks – including things that are too cumbersome for you to handle – so that you can communicate these needs to the cleaning company.
– If you would like stubborn stains be removed from upholstery, send in pictures first to check if they can be treated.
Here are five spring cleaning services and specialists for hire to get your house spick and span for CNY:
1. Home Cleanz
Home Cleanz has a wide range of services – among the widest in this industry. Besides spring-cleaning and upholstery cleaning, they can polish marble and parquet floors and even paint your house!
– Sofa: They handle only fabric sofas, which are cleaned using machines emitting steam or ultraviolet light.
– Curtains: These are dry-cleaned at their facility; steam-cleaning is available for blackout curtains.
The team will arrange for a free site inspection before providing a quotation. As a gauge, expect to pay $400 for spring-cleaning by three cleaners for three to four hours, for a five-room HDB flat. For drapes and upholstery, prices range from $9 a kilo for dry-cleaning curtains (additional $20 for dismantling and installation) to $90 for a one- seater sofa. Prices stated exclude GST.
