The Importance of Domestic & Commercial Cleaning Services



The importance of regular and thorough cleaning of property cannot be overlooked, at all.

Because, after all, what point is there in spending time, money and energy towards creating the perfect home or working environment only to see it dirtied and damaged due to completely avoidable circumstances.

Depending on your building and property, you might need the help of specialised cleaning services, or even a team of professionals. These jobs include cleaning high-rise windows and, using high-pressure water, pest control, certification, or even a deep clean if needed.

In this short article we will run through some of the more common forms of cleaning and ensuring high hygiene standards in homes, offices, factories, and other buildings. Remember that these are crucial – and often legally required – forms of cleaning that require both skill and investment, specifically when it comes to commercial cleaning. Without it, you might see lasting damage, or even worse, fines.

Beetle Certificates

Did you know that there is a law requiring you to prove that your building is clear of damaging insects which can and will cause serious structural damage? A beetle certificate of clearance shows that your property has been inspected and found to be free of the bugs that attack timber, causing severe rot and creating incredibly dangerous living or working conditions.

Beetle certificates have become standard practice, and it’s often a condition written into the sale agreement in coastal areas, although they it isn’t usually required for sectional title properties, or where the property is situated inland where beetle and wood borer problems are less common.

This means that a qualified, certified contractor is a must. He or she will be able to provide a certificate and other needed documentation.

As explained by Wikipedia: “Fumigation generally involves the following phases: First the area intended to be fumigated is usually covered to create a sealed environment; next the fumigant is released into the space to be fumigated; then, the space is held for a set period while the fumigant gas percolates through the space and acts on and kills any infestation in the product, next the space is ventilated so that the poisonous gases are allowed to escape from the space, and render it safe for humans to enter. If successful, the fumigated area is now safe and pest free.”

Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning
