New Service Announcement!

Gleem is a business that is constantly forging ahead to the future, looking for ways to improve their services to ensure their customers are receiving the best quality service possible.

Recently, Gleem have expanded their services by now offering gutter cleaning! It is very easy for gutter pipes to become stopped up by fallen leaves, sticks, layers of grime and dirt, and other forms of debris. These pipes play a vital role in maintaining the foundations of your home, as they control the flow of rainwater, directing it off the roof of your home. If left, the gutter pipes can quickly become a household nightmare. The blockage from debris will leave the water with nowhere to go, and can result in the pipes bursting, or the water making its way into your interior. If this happens, your house is liable to be infested with damp, or even attract the undesirable attention of pests such as rodents and insects.

 

So just how often should gutters be cleaned? It all depends on your location. For example, if you live in a place where gutter pipes are more likely to become stopped up with the like of leaves and twigs, such as in suburbs lined with trees, you should make an effort to ensure your gutters are cleaned at least twice a year. But other variables such as the weather have to be taken into account. If it rains more, gutter pipes will fill up more quickly and need a relatively empty pipe for the water to flow without issue. If you live in an area where rain is regular, the gutter pipe should be cleaned more than twice a year.

 

For the average layman, the gutter pipes definitely are amongst the hardest cleaning tasks to do, hence why it is a job that people mostly hire professionals for. This is why Gleem decided to include this as part of the many tasks they provides, as they understand the demand of this chore and want to ensure for your sake that it is done to the high standard Gleem upholds.. Not only is it difficult, but it is dangerous as well, as a ladder is required to reach the pipe.

However, if it’s not too clogged and your hose is capable of outputting a decent amount of water pressure, it might be possible to hose out the blockages, and if that fails, a hard bristle brush to comb out the debris. Others opt for creating a chemical -free solution of hot water and vinegar to clean away the grime, but this won’t do much to clear blockages.


If this all sounds like too much of a hassle for you to take care of on your own, then worry not! Gleem offers gutter cleaning for mid-terrace, end-terrace, semi-detached, detached and three-storey houses all for affordable prices. But don’t take my word for it, take a peek yourself over at Gleem to view these great deals and the testimonials that demonstrate the high quality you can expect.

RomyLMS

This week we will be taking a break from talking about cleaning to discuss another important aspect for Gleem and businesses as a whole–the technological side of it, more specifically staff training and LMS’s that aid in training employees.

 

About RomyLMS

RomyLMS is a relative newcomer into the business of LMS’s. The CEO, Kevin Kuhn, co-founded RomyLMS as no existing ones where suitable for their business Coalition Technologies. The demand for a simple, easy-to-use LMS system was there, so they took the initiative and designed their own, commercializing it so that others could benefit from its simplicity.

 

What is an LMS?

LMS is an acronym that stands for Learning Management System. LMS’s are useful business tools that allow companies to track, report and deliver training programs or learning courses that are relevant to the business.

Why is Training Employees Important?

It doesn’t matter how skilled or the amount of qualifications and grades your employees have, what is essential is honing existing skills and teaching them new ones that will help them operate more efficiently.

If they are trained specifically for their job role, they will feel more confident while at work, which will undoubtedly improve their proficiency, and a more proficient employee will result in higher quality work. Overall, if your staff are given training courses they will feel more valued as an individual as you have chosen to dedicated time and money to developing them within your business. This will result in a happier work environment, which in return boosts the quality and quantity of their work as they will undoubtedly feel more motivated.

Using an LMS can help you tackle employee training by allowing you to store, manage and track training, making employee training a much easier task.

 

The Benefits of Using an LMS

As stated previously, staff training is imperative for all business, big and small, no matter what their trade.

Not only that, but with RomyLMS there are pre-existing materials for you to use, cutting down on the amount of time invested in creating.

These materials can then be distributed to individuals or to a group at once, maximising the efficiency of delivering tasks.

What’s more, companies like RomyLMS offer great packages at affordable prices, even offering their product for free for the first 20 users.

 

Cleaning the Bedroom

Arguably the room that is the most integral part of the household: the bedroom. It’s here we spend on average a third of our life, and it where the magic happens…sleep! And because of this, it is also one of the most unhygienic rooms of a house, as a lot of dead skin cells are shed there during sleep. Here’s a list of top tips from Bristol Cleaners on how to keep the bedroom squeaky clean!

 

Dusting

As mentioned above, a lot of dead skin cells are shed in the bedroom, which are part of what forms the layers of dust atop surfaces. Once a week, you should dust the surfaces using a slightly damp cloth or sponge. Never use a feather duster, as it is proven not to pick up dust as efficiently. Start with higher surfaces first, as some dust may be swept off onto lower surfaces.

 

Glass Surfaces

Surfaces such as mirrors and windows attract a lot of dust. Thus everytime you dust down the surfaces don’t forget the mirror! While glass cleaning products are fine to use, be careful not to use too much as this will cause the surface to become streaky. If you would rather not risk it, a damp cloth should work just fine.

 

Vacuuming

A regular vacuuming is a must for every room in the house. Dust, dirt, stray hairs and fluff always find themselves trodden into the carpet. This is a task that should be done at least once a week to ensure there your floor is clean enough to feast off of!

If you have wooden floors, you should ensure it is mopped with one part bleach to four parts hot water, as vacuum cleaners cannot lift any stains on the floor.

 

Keep the Floor Decluttered

Of course you won’t have much joy hoovering or mopping the floor if it is not clutter-free! It’s too easy to fall into the trap of discarding books, laundry and the like onto the floor, but eventually it will all pile up until it becomes too overwhelming to consider tidying.

Investing in a laundry hamper is a one way to tackle this issue, as well as ensuring you keep a small bin in your room for any trash.

 

Make the Bed

After a long day of work, coming home to an immaculately-made bed is a small pleasure. But fluffing the peoples and straightening out the duvet every morning is not enough. Depending variables such as how much you sweat per night, bedding should be washed weekly. It has been proven that sleeping on the same pillow for several nights in a row can cause skin conditions such as acne. So in order to keep a hygienic bed, make sure to change the sheets on a weekly basis. However, the actual duvets and mattress toppers only need cleaning twice per year.

Gleem cleaning deals with many of these tasks and more! Book a normal and deep clean now.

Outdoor Cleaning

modified (1)

 

We all are aware of the importance of keeping the inside of our homes clean, but what about the outside? It may come as a surprise, but ensuring the exterior of your house is just as imperative. What’s more, most people can only judge what state your house is from the outside. A cleaner exterior makes your home look far more inviting. Our expert Bristol cleaners from Gleem have some expert tips for keeping the outside of your home spick and span!

 

Basic Gardening

Perhaps the most obvious job is to ensure your garden is in top-shape. Depending on the speed your grass grows dictates how often you should mow it, but the average is once a week. For plants and flowers, ensure they are watered regularly to avoid them withering.

As for one of the most problematic gardening chores, weeding, there are various tools available at hardware stores at your disposal. Some gardening gloves and trowel should be able to help you dig weeds out of soil. However weeding tools with longer handles and tapered ends, such as a fulcrum weeder, allow you to dig even deeper into the soil to get to the literal root of the problem.

Laying down mulch or using a mixture of salt and vinegar within your soil can help prevent the growing of weeds in the future.

 

Cleaning the Windows

More often than not windows need more cleaning on the outside than in, as the exterior is exposed to the elements, ergo more dirt and grime. If window cleaners don’t operate in your area, or if you’d rather not pay for it, you can treat the exterior of windows same as you do the interior, with window cleaning fluid and a high-quality cloth. Specialised equipment may be necessary for tougher stains, like bird feces for example.

However, it is recommended to leave the higher windows to the professionals, due to the danger of injury.

 

Washing the Floor

This may seem like a redundant task, but if you have stone-flagged floors outside it is a good idea to regularly wash it, especially if you have a dogs, as remnants of fecal matter may be left behind when picking it up.

Hot water and bleach works well to clean the floor. Simply soak the flags, brush it down then rinse once again. Remember to not use too much bleach, as it can erode stone overtime, especially stone that is porous.

 

Declutter the Garden

If you have the misfortune of living somewhere where littering is the norm, then you probably also have the misfortune of litter blowing into your garden. Whilst it’s not your responsibility, it is prudent to clean up the trash once a week, if they are not any designated rubbish collectors in your area. Not only does the little make your garden appear undesirable, it also can attract rodents and the like. Make the effort to make sure your garden is litter-free at least twice a month.

 

How to Be a Smart Cleaner!

There are many variables that need to be taken into account when cleaning. Are these the most effective products for the job, how eco-friendly are they? Am I really getting the best value for my money?

Here at Gleem we pride ourselves as a company that offers a spectacular service at affordable prices, and we ensure our domestic cleaners are equipped with the best equipment and products to do the job. We are also conscious of the environment, and do our best to ensure our products are eco-friendly, and we have even partnered up with charities to ensure our business has the best impact on the world as a whole.

This week we will discuss on how to be a smart cleaner with tips from our very own Bristol cleaners. You will be a pro-cleaner in no time!

 

Products

The most basic of necessities when it comes to cleaning, but with so many different choices it can all be a little too overwhelming. In most cases, there is little difference between shops’ own brand and big-name brands–other than the price tag. So don’t fear in buying shops own products–it works just as well and you can save yourself some money in the process.

But to be an even savvier shopper–look online.. In this digital age there are countless sites to cater to every specific need–including cleaning! Sites like Amazon sell cleaning products for a portion of the price you would pay in-store. What’s more, you can view reviews left by other purchasers to see if its the right cleaning product for you. And buying online makes it so much easier to compare prices to ensure you are getting the best deal!

If you are looking to do you part in taking care of the environment, Big Screen Smile and The Ethical Superstore both offer eco-friendly products.

 

Equipment

Perhaps just as vital as products, equipment is needed for everyday household chores. It is, however, more difficult to navigate your way through the shop aisles and catalogue pages filled with thousands of different names for machinery. However there are more distinct names in this regard known for durability and quality. For example, Dyson hoovers come highly recommended, for good reason.

When shopping in electronic stores, salesmen are always going to try and sell you the most expensive products. And while machines are no longer built to last, you do to an extent get what you pay for. It is a fine balancing act, to ensure you will get your money’s worth out of your product, but also ensure you are not being ripped-off. There is really no way to avoid this other than have a willingness to shop around to see where you can get the best deal. Curry’s, Argos, Best Buy are your best bet. I would recommend steering clear of buying such things from yard sales or eBay due to the low shelf-life of such things.

 

Methods

One of the greatest misconceptions and rookie mistakes when it comes to cleaning is rubbing liquid spillages. This does not life what has been spilled, rather than just spread it. On hard surfaces such as laminate floorings, this does not matter so much, as eventually it can be wiped off. But with fabrics like clothes and carpets, this only serves to rub the stain in, thus making it a more laborious job for you than it was to begin with. Instead, dab at the spillage with a wet cloth, and treat with carpet cleaner.

A good rule of thumb is to regularly do jobs such as dusting, wiping down surfaces and hoovering before these jobs become harder due to neglect. Putting off cleaning jobs only adds to the burden, so a good method to keeping a clean house it to clean regularly!

 

Cleaning the Bathroom

Expert domestic cleaning tips for your household cleaning2

 

Last week, we tackled the kitchen. This week, we will be discussing how to properly clean the bathroom. As one of the most unhygienic places, keeping the bathroom clean is of utmost importance.  

 

The Basics

To start with, you should ensure your bathroom is supplied with the most basic products. Bleach and a toilet brush are must-haves for keeping your loo squeaky clean, and being able to get each for under £1, it will hardly break the bank.

Ordinary cloths are useful for wiping down surfaces and can handle basic cleaning tasks such as sinks and towel rails. Antibacterial wipes also serve a similar purpose.

A mop and bucket are also a must for the home in general, especially if you have a lot more wooden floors than carpets.

We would also recommend some form of a shower cleaner, such as Mr Muscle.

 

The Toilet

If you clean the toilet on a regular basis, it should be fairly easy to clean with the brush. If dirt and grime has been left to build up for a while, pour bleach around the bowl before scrubbing it with the brush. Not only will it be clean, but now it will also smell fresh.

 

The Bath

It is imperative to clean the bath tub especially after having a bath to prevent the build-up of limescale.

There are specialised bottles of cleaners that can be used to keep the bathtub clean. It’s generally a good rule of thumb to remember to hose down the bathtub after taking a bath.

 

Surfaces

As mentioned earlier, cloths are ideal for cleaning surfaces, but there are also specialized wipes for this task, however cloths are more economical as they can be reused. Simply spray down the surface with a product labelled safe to use for the material of the surface then wipe down with the cloth dampened with hot water.  

 

Floor

For wooden, tiled or cushioned flooring, fill a bucket 1:4 ratio bleach and hot water, then mop down the floor. Though there are floor-cleaning products available bleach does the trick just as well for a fraction of the price. However, take care as bleach can make the colour on clothing fade when exposed to it.

If you’re bathroom is carpeted, and there are some stains, we recommend investing in a professional carpet-cleaner as this will lift all the stains and grime from the carpet. If you can’t spring for one, instead buy carpet cleaning solution, spray on the carpet and allow to soak in for a few minutes before hoovering over the spot. It requires more time and effort, but is a much cheaper alternative.

 

Unclogging the Toilet

This may seem trite, but it is important to learn how to properly unclog a toilet. Obviously using a plunger is the best method, but if you don’t have one of these on hand, bleach and boiling water will do. First pour about half a liter of boiling water, then use a cap or two worth of bleach and flush. The boiling water will break down whatever is blocking the drains, and the bleach will help the blockage to slide down the drain a little easier. Use more bleach and water as required.


All of this sound too much like a hassle, or does your busy lifestyle not allow you the luxury of taking the time to clean to a satisfactory level? Then hire one of Gleem’s domestic cleaners to tackle the task for you!

Dust

Regardless if you live in a single-family home, town house or apartment, there is one thing that probably drives you the most nuts – dust!

As soon as you dust off one surface, another one needs it.

It seems like no matter how hard you clean around the home, dust just keeps coming back over and over again.

Unfortunately, dust is a stubborn substance that truly will never go away. The best thing you can do is learn how to cut down on its existence inside your home, so you don’t have to battle with it as often.

In this post, we’ll uncover the mystery behind what dust actually is and why it won’t go away. We’ll also give you some powerful cleaning tips on how you can drastically reduce its presence inside your house.

What Exactly is Dust?

Although dust can be very irritating to look, it is quite fascinating to discover what makes up this microscopic substance.

Many people are surprised when they find out that some dust contains particles from space rocks. You may have seen or heard of a meteor shower before, and these flying comets leave behind a trail of dust and small rocks known as meteoroids here on Earth.

But, space rocks are not all that dust is made up of. Dust also includes things like bits of food, dead skin cells, pollen, dirt, pet hair and dander, mold spores, parasites, etc.

In fact, the location of dust inside your home usually governs the composition.

If you take a look around your house right now, you can probably determine what particles are forming the dust that is collecting on your surfaces. Undoubtedly, it includes dead skin cells, human hair, food bits and dirt.

If you have pets, then pet hair and dander will contribute to your dust. If someone inside your home smokes, you can bet that ash particles are also a contributing factor.

If you live in a rural setting then pollen, mold and fungus particles are probably collecting inside your home. If you live in an urban area, automobile exhaust smoke particles are most likely collecting on the interior surfaces of your home or apartment, which causes dust to build up more quickly.

As you can see, dust is made up of a multitude of things and it is always being formed on a consistent basis. So, removing it completely from your home is practically impossible.

But, there are things you can do to cut down on its existence and reduce your need to clean as often. We’ll explain what these are next.

Simple Ways to Reduce Household Dust

Always Clean from Top Down

Have you ever cleaned off a surface inside a room, like a side table, and found dust almost instantly in that very spot again? Mostly likely, it is because you were cleaning in the wrong direction.

Whenever you dust a room, always start at the highest surface and work your way down. Any dust that falls from high up locations will land on lower spots and then get handled when you clean those lower surfaces next.

The best places to start is at the top of window and door jams. Then, tackle mirrors and windows. Next, dust any surface at eye level and work your way down to the floor, which is where the dust should now be collected.

Ditch the Feather Duster

Feather dusters are the worst thing you can use for cleaning your home. These seemingly convenient tools spread more dust around than they pick up.

Instead, use a damp paper towel to wipe down surfaces. Dust will collect on this much better. Once it gets dirty throw it away. We advise this method of cleaning, as opposed to using a damp rag or cloth, because paper towels are exposable. Using the same rag over again can reintroduce dust back into the room.

Wash Your Bedding Each Week

Remember earlier when we mentioned that your home has dust that is made up of human hair and dead skin cells? Well, one of the biggest collective habitats for these things is your bed.

Therefore, it is highly recommended that you wash your bedding once per week. Otherwise, dust particles will continue to build up on this surface and easily be tracked to other locations inside your home, which increases your need to clean more rooms, more often.

Additionally, a dusty bed attracts dust mites, which cause a whole host of allergy related issues and problems.

Don’t Neglect Cleaning Your Rugs

Although rugs are great for décor and as functional items inside the home, these items are major collection spots for dust particles. Even worse if you have pets.

You would be surprised at how much, and quickly, the amount of dust that can build up inside the fibers of your rugs when they are not cleaned routinely.

To cut down on the amount of dust inside your house, give your rugs a good shake or beating outside every 2-3 months. Then, vacuum them vigorously before placing them back inside.

Clean the Air Around You

The most irritating issue with dust is that it not only collects on household surfaces, but it also floats around in the air. This means that these microscopic particles can end up inside your lungs as you breathe.

If you have ever experienced allergy symptoms while indoors (sniffing, coughing, itchy or red eyes), and were not sick, then it is probably attributed to breathing in dust particles.

To stay healthy and safe at home, the best thing you can do is clean the air around you. To do that, all you need is an air purifier.

In its most basic sense, an air purifier is nothing more than a combination of a fan and filter. It operates by pulling air from around the room into the unit, traps the dust particles inside a filter, and then blows clean air back into the room for you to breathe.

What makes air purifiers even more attractive is the fact that they work on a continuous basis to strip dust from the room. By using one, your home can stay cleaner for a longer period of time and cut down on the need for dusting and vacuuming.

In fact, some air purifiers are so efficient that you may not even have to dust again for an entire month or more. If you have pets, they are also great at removing pet hair and dander from the home as well.

Routinely Change the HVAC Air Filter

If your home uses a central HVAC system for heating and cooling, ensure that you change the air filter every three months.

These house air filters get clogged with dust and debris quite fast and once it becomes too dirty it will stop being effective and your indoor air quality will suffer.

A dirty air filter can be a main source of recirculating dust particles around the home. So, no matter how well you clean, you’ll always find dust collecting throughout every room.

Even worse, not changing your home air filter can add stress to the HVAC system and potentially cause it to fail, which then becomes a costly fix.

Deep-Cleaning the Kitchen

 

how-to-clean

The kitchen is one of the most unpleasant tasks in a house, second only to the bathroom. However, it is a necessary task, especially right after the holidays when the counters are cluttered with countless wine glasses, plates and pots! So here are a few pointers from Gleem’s own domestic cleaners on how to keep a spotless kitchen!

 

Start with the Dishes

A good place to begin with is taking care of the pile of dishes. Dishes are one of the less strenuous tasks, and it clears the counters so they can be wiped down. If you have no specialized kitchen-cleaning products, soaking a sponge in the dish-water works just as well.

 

Surfaces

A good rule of thumb is to scrub down surfaces a few days a week. That way, spilt food stuff is not left to harden and stick to surfaces, which make it a nightmare to clean later down the line. There is a wealth of products available at supermarkets designed specifically for this task, but hot, soapy water and elbow grease work just as well.

 

Oven

Cleaning the oven often seems like a daunting task you want to procrastinate away, but we have the solution to making it less of a nightmare. Generally, a good way to keep it from becoming a headache is to clean it on a weekly basis. Burnt-on food stuff that is being heated repeatedly hardens to the point it will destroy any clothes or sponges it comes in contact to, and on top of that create an unpleasant scent when cooking.

But if your oven has been neglected, it is not beyond saving. A mixture of one teaspoon baking powder, one teaspoon vinegar, and leave it to soak on stains overnight with the oven door left open. This should help break down the solid matters and allow you to scrape it off.

 

Floor

Possibly the easiest task, but still as imperative as the rest. It’s not enough to hoover the floor, as stains from spilt liquid or trodden-in food will not be removed this way. First start with hoovering. Then fill a bucket with hot water and a just a splash of bleach and mop the floor, which should prove sufficient.

 

Fridge and Freezer

These appliances are often placed low on the pecking order when it comes to cleaning. Whilst it is true they do not require as much upkeep as the hob, for example, but they still need cleaning every so often. Every two weeks minimum, the inside of the fridge should be wiped down, particularly the bottom as liquid from foods leaks down which is not only unhygienic but can also contaminate other foods and make them unfit for consumption. It is also wise to ensure food in your fridge is ordered correctly.

Meat and veg should be placed at the bottom, in each drawer if your fridge has these. Liquids like milk and jars stored in the door. Food that is opened should be stored as close to the bottom as possible, especially meat. Food that still has its seal intact should be placed on the upper shelves as there is no chance for them to drip down.

As for the freezer, ice builds up overtime limiting storage space. As this is not a major issue, you can get away with defrosting it a few times a year. To do this, turn off the freezer, remove its contents, place a towel at the base of the freezer and scrape away the excess ice.

Top Tips For Students

7658261288_9673fa20eb_b

By now the first semester is over, bringing with it a wealth of free time, time which may be tempting to spend down at the pub or curled up on the sofa watching Netflix. However, there are more rewarding ways to spend your time this winter…

 

Deep Cleaning

What with deadlines, university lectures, social outing and other obligations it is difficult to find the time and motivation to give your accommodation a thorough clean. So now with the Christmas holidays, consider taking the time to do all the cleaning you have been procrastinating: cleaning the oven door, wiping down the windows and weeding the garden, if you have one. It is always wise to take the time every month or so to handle more heavy-duty jobs before they grow out of hand.

If you don’t feel like wasting your break on cleaning, consider hiring a Gleem cleaner. You can choose to book a regular or a deep clean to get the clean that best suits your needs.

 

Organising

This doesn’t necessarily have to refer to your home. It could mean organising papers in a folder, or files on your computer. Though clearing a desk or tidying the floor is an effective way to refresh the space around you, and can put you in the right frame of mind to be productive.

 

Join Clubs

Universities have a plethora of clubs to cater to a variety of tastes and hobbies, so you are bound to find a club dedicated to something you enjoy, where you can meet many like-minded individuals. Clubs are also a great way to enhance your people skills, which are essential for many workplaces.

 

Christmas Temp Work  

During the holidays, many shops, restaurants and other businesses have a call for temporary staff to help deal with the Christmas crush. Temporary jobs are a great way to gain experience and earn extra money. If you’re looking for a fulfilling position, Gleem is currently hiring Christmas temps.

 

Learn Something New

You can put your free time to good use by picking up something you have always wanted to learn, be it a new language, an instrument, or try your hand at arts and crafts. You might surprise yourself by finding a new hobby, which could even bring in extra money through sites like Etsy or Society6.

 

Kicking Off the New Year

Fireworks

Looking to celebrate New Years in a fun and exciting way? Here at Gleem we have thought of some interesting party idea to kick off the new year with a bang!

 

Setting the Table

Food is undoubtedly one of the greatest attractions of any party and an elegant table is important for preparing someones palette. The important thing to remember is less is more. You want to draw your guests eye to the food. Keep it classy and simple with napkins, folded into shapes if you can. Small vases of flowers dotted between the dishes go a long way.

Katrin Bjork suggests serving each guest a bowl with twelve grapes in for each strike of the clock at midnight, an extremely simple but unique way to make guests feel more involved at the stroke of twelve.

 

Cocktails

Cocktails are a staple of New Years celebration. Serving guests a cocktail as soon as they enter makes them feel welcome and entertains them long enough for you to complete any last-minute prep.

Champagne is another favoured drink of New Years, so why not try cocktails using champagne as the base?

 

Fancy Dress

Liven up the evening a bit by having a fancy dress party. Choose a theme for people to stick to or let them go wild with their imagination. Either way this is a fantastic way to eject a lot of fun and laughter into the evening they will remember for years.

 

Fireworks Display

Would it really be New Years without a fireworks? Every year, across the nation there are countless cities hosting displays. Check your local parks and other venues, and prepare to start 2019 off with a bang. Or two. Or thirty.

 

Keeping it Low-Key

Celebrations and parties a little too much excitement? Then keep it low-key as you like–a small gathering of friends and family, order in a pizza and watch a movie. There’s no shame choosing to have a quiet night in.

But if you choose to throw a party, remember you can hire a Gleem cleaner to help tidy up the mess the following morning,
