Yes we know it is supposed to be a spree of health-related articles on how home cleaning improves your health, and how eagerly you are waiting for the answers to be revealed! Just as how advertisements work, we’d like to hijack this opportune moment for something equally (if not more) important! 30 SECONDS. That is how long it would take, at most, (based on a scientific research of 1000 Ahma Cleaners trying out our website) to book a cleaner here at MEIDE!
Now, to the meat of the day: how long it takes to book a cleaner @ MEIDE.SG!
Certain agencies proclaim “3 Easy Steps”, and “Hassle-free Booking”, but a peek at the variety of categories and options is enough to overwhelm one’s desire to JUST GET A CLEANER! (Doesn’t that just remind you of how exams trick you in saying there is only 1 question but broken into 10 parts and another 5 subsections for each part? LOL) Here at MEIDE, we believe in dedication and efficacy in making life simpler for everyone and for you. When you are busy and need help, we are here. Just drop us a call, WhatsApp message (8595 8579), or tinkle us at Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, Youtube… the list goes on. Anywhere you are, we aim to be reached at a click!
Wait, if it is that easy, why 30 SECONDS? Perhaps if one is using an ancient computer or internet modem? Well, we did say, 30 SECONDS is the maximum it takes! If you can spare just 1 click, go ahead and CLICK. We will do the rest whilst you sit back and enjoy your TV/Movies! If you have slightly a few more moments and want to get a cleaning arrangement (read: How To Book Cleaning Session; How To Book Cleaning Service) efficiently and without even much communication (read: maybe you are flying overseas in 1 hour?), here are some tips to follow – details to provide us when booking!
Date(s) + Day of the week – this prevents mistakes, you’ll be surprised! 😉
Preferred Timings – exact timings restricts availability. try “anytime before 4pm” or “any time 2-10pm”
Preferred Gender, Race and Nationality (if any) (if you don’t mention it, most people will assume NO preferences!) Note that these restrictions will affect availability. Do also let us know if you are STRICT about it, or flexible. Feel free to prioritise it for us in a numbered list.
Along the same lines, English is presumed as the default communication device. You can let us know if you have any preferred languages – eg. “only my grandmother who speaks Hokkien at home will be around so please send someone with Hokkien capability!”
Exact Address (needless to say, our cleaners need to use Google Maps!)
Type of House (2-bedroom Condo with 1 toilet and 1 balcony)
Details (eg. approach the Guardhouse, tell him you are going to unit number 01-05 at block 2, looking for Mr Lim, then turn left and walk past the garden to the second gate, finally press the intercom “C, 0, 1, 0, 5, Enter” and wait for Mr Lim to answer the phone; or better, “I will meet her at 12pm sharp at the Lobby”)
Who will be (or predicted to be) at home – eg. my parents-in-law will be at home (this is because most customers and cleaners prefer avoiding having just 1 female and 1 male at home!)
Pets at home (some cleaners are allergic or afraid of cats/dogs/rabbits/goldfishes/lions)
Specific Cleaning Required (eg. clean toilet, tidy bedroom, iron 10 clothing, mop the balcony – check out our FAQ on what our basic services include!)
Now we got your back. Congratulations for making it this far reading our hijack article. If you feel there are some more things we have missed out – which is highly likely, do drop us a comment below and we would be more than glad to include it too!
Just as we are passionate about serving you, we are dedicated towards making your time efficient and effective. Based on our experience, here are 4 Easy Ways To Make Your Home Cleaning FAST and FURIOUS!
Position your tools and equipment handy, in close proximity. For example, your broom should be at “grabbing-level” – not stuffed somewhere in the corner or behind a table or refrigerator! Mops, buckets, cloths and cleaning solutions should be all placed in an area where the dirt drops the most, such as the kitchen or toilet. Place “dry cleaning” tools such as the 3M Magiclean and dry wipes at the entrance of your bedroom, and hang vacuum at the entrance of your cupboard to suck away all hair, dust and food crumbs! Our favourite include using the 3M Hook where all your cleaning tools can simply be hung on the wall and easily reachable and replaceable.
No specific cleaning regimes are required! Shocking, but yes. The more regimental you get about cleaning, the more dreadful it seems (well, that spells good for us though), and the less likely that you would even want to clean up your place! Instead, do your cleaning ad-hoc. Just before leaving your house for work, or upon arriving home after work, spend the first few minutes just tidying up what appears to be a nuisance to your eyes! A little everyday goes a long way. And if you have a partner or more (oops) at home, everybody chipping in would make cleaning more effortless and less of a chore!
Keep your home clean. At the end of the day, no one likes dirtiness. Minimize trash, and use recyclables. Be careful when eating at home – and try as much as possible to restrict all eating and drinking to just 1 location. Use mats, use easy-to-wash covers, rugs, curtains. Buy clothing that tend not to crumple easily (check out G2000 clothing!) – that reduces ironing time by a huge chunk! Avoid flicking your dirt (who knows from where), hair and nails everywhere – that is really a pain to clean.
We could go on all day about a 100 more ways to keep your house clean. But really, why do that when you can solve all your worries with just one click? *HINT*
Why hire a cleaner? Why spend $18/HOUR NETT for someone else to clean your house? Why find a part time maid?
Sometimes, our founders ponder over these questions whilst awaiting for the bus, MRT or their favourite Char Kway Teow.
The question of to clean or not to clean – however philosophical, frivolous, or downright pointless – goes merely beyond dollars and cents. The same reason why one customer might spend $5 to buy their takeaway food and why another customer would rather spend a few cents and cook their own meals at home – time is an invaluable factor. With $5 spent on the food cooked by another, one could spend the cooking time saved for their spouse when they return home from work, or spend the cooking time saved with their kids returning from school. Be it simply watching the TV, relaxing by the balcony, or chatting over coffee about the events of the day, these are precious moments not to be undervalued by the busy-everyday-office-worker.
Why take the MRT when you can move to somewhere nearer to your office? Save the transport time (usually spent idling with your phone and scrolling aimlessly through facebook?) for something more beneficial! If you are reading this, chance are you would pause – wait. Why of course. How many have the financial capacity to move to anywhere they like, conveniently next to office or work? By the same token, there are things that one could afford without leaving too large a hole in their wallets, but yet save an enormous amount of time for more valuable stuff! You know what we are talking about. Save that many hours of time spent cleaning, and use it to go out for a healthy walk in the gardens, enjoy the evening breeze, or plan a dinner with your dearest ones!
Why wait any more? Spend the money but save the time for what really matters. We make it not just worthwhile for your buck, but delightfully easy and simple to get that extra few hours for your family and loved ones. MEIDE.SG
