What is the value of your Cleaner?

Value of your cleaner?

Have you ever really thought about the true value your cleaner or cleaners deliver to you and your Family?

According to an article in the Guardian - "Hospital cleaners are worth more to society than City bankers" to which i would actually agree with. Bankers after all are mostly responsible for almost every War we have seen on this Planet, so don't get me started on the value of a Banker! Cleaner's on the other hand are more often than not the forgotten bunch, the ones who everyone over looks or even worst - looks down upon.

At the beginning of 2020, the globe just seen how important cleaners are with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, with entire buildings needing to be cleaned by highly professional teams of cleaners. I bet everyone who was in an effected area were glad to see the cleaners now right.

2020 proved to everyone that cleaning jobs are just as important as many other jobs and do come with many benefits. They can be more flexible to work around your everyday life and working in that field can be very diverse. From domestic, industrial to public settings. Quite often there will be a lot of cleaning jobs available in various industries.

Another way to look at how much value your Cleaner delivers, is in the amount of time you save by not having to spend your free time doing the cleaning, what is the value of that saving? Could you place a price of that saving of time?  We bet you could.

Getting the best bang for your buck

How do I get the best value from a Cleaner?

That's a great question, and probably one of those questions asked by all those who hire a cleaner to clean their houses. The best way we can answer this is, how much do you still need to do after your cleaner has just cleaned?

  • Are you finding that they don't pick things up to dust underneath? Redgum does this as standard (Unless excess cluter is present).
  • Are you still fixing up stuff that they miss? Redgum systematic processes eleminate this issue.
  • Are you able to customise your clean? Redgum offers this feature as standard (some "extra" items to attract increase in fee's).
  • Are you getting the same cleaner every time? Redgum only sends the same person or people to the one client.

You get what you pay for

Unfortunately this is true when it comes to hiring a cleaner or cleaning company to complete your cleaning. Redgum is not the cheapest cleaning company you could hire, however we are probably the only ones or at least a member of a very limited group of cleaning organisations that take quality and high workmanship very seriously.

Ok so are you ready to experience the Redgum difference?

    Top 8 Things NOT to do, When Cleaning your Home

    So you've just finished cleaning your house - and BAM! There's dust all over the area's you just cleaned. This happens to countless people around Australia, and today we are going to discuss the Top 8 Things NOT to do, When Cleaning your Home.

    Below are 8 basic things you can do to prevent dust build-up, to help stop windows getting dirty and a few other tips that you may find interesting or even useful to utilise in your own house.



    Using dish soap on your cutting boards.

    Top 8 Things NOT to do, When Cleaning your Home 3When it comes to cleaning wooden chopping blocks, soap and warm water doesn't always cut it. After using one to slice 'n dice raw meat or poultry, soak it in a diluted bleach solution to prevent cross-contamination when prepping your next meal. Another way to neutralise odors and germs is to use lemon to rub onto the board.

    Neglecting your biggest touch points.

    Shiny taps are awesomeTaps, handles, and door knobs are some of the most-touched areas in your home, which is why they're also the germiest. Take to 'em with a disinfectant wipe daily to keep germs at bay.

    Spraying furniture with polish.

    Top 8 Things NOT to do, When Cleaning your Home 4When you spray furniture directly, it creates build-up that's tough to remove and attracts even more dust. To avoid this, spray your cleaning cloth with the cleaner, then rub the cloth on dusty surfaces, this will assist in keeping the dust on the cloth instead of just spreading it around.

    Using the same rag everywhere.

    Top 8 Things NOT to do, When Cleaning your Home 5You got streaky surfaces? You might be over-using your cleaning cloth and spreading germs while you're at it. Even if your cleaning cloth doesn't look old, it should be washed after each use since it's used on high-traffic areas.

    Using a feather duster. Period.

    Top 8 Things NOT to do, When Cleaning your Home 6We'll give you a thumbs up for dusting, but a big thumbs down for using a tool that only spreads dust from one surface to another. Use a microfiber cloth instead, which will grab — and hold onto — particles. Make sure it is dry, and wet cloth will make the job harder.

    Not dusting your windows.

    Top 8 Things NOT to do, When Cleaning your Home 7Before washing them, that is. If you forget to tackle the dust on your sills, any liquid that drips onto the frame will become a muddy mess of dusty liquid. A vacuum or microfiber cloth will tackle the mess quickly ending with a nice finish.

    Forgetting your garbage can.

    Top 8 Things NOT to do, When Cleaning your Home 8If you notice an unpleasant smell in your kitchen, it might be an indicator that you haven't clean your garbage can in awhile. Wipe it down once a week with a cleaner containing bleach to keep nasty smells under control.

    Using dirty sponges.

    Top 8 Things NOT to do, When Cleaning your Home 9These cleaning sponges won't, be that helpful if you don't sanitise them every few days (and replace them every 3 - 4 weeks). To maintain your sponge and keep it clean, soak your sponge in boiling HOT! water only, do not add anything to the water. Allow to soak for 10 minutes, then repeat the process twice more. Once completed, put on window sill in the sun to dry. Placing a wet sponge in a dark area will only attract bacteria to grow.



    2020 is here, Happy New Year! Welcome to a brand new decade. In this blog post I’m going to discuss why the clean, before the clean is a waste of your time and money.The Clean before the Clean

    You’ve started implementing your new goals and one of them is to free up some of your time by hiring a professional cleaner to come into your home to assist with keeping the house clean and tidy.


    The Clean before the CleanSo it finally arrives, the day that your new cleaner is due to arrive to start cleaning your home. However you’ve been up an hour earlier than usual just so you could tidy up the house before your new cleaner gets there.

    You have been running around like crazy trying to pick up all the kids clothing and toys that have been scattered throughout the house, in the process you realize that your Husband needs to learn how to take his dirty socks and underwear to the wash basket as most of the clothes are his.

    The orders of “GET OUT OF BED ALREADY” – “The Cleaner will be here shortly”! echo throughout the home, OMG you think to yourself, this was supposed to be a lot easier, I’ve still got the kitchen to get tidy – Husband and Kids to be dressed and ready to leave,  and they will be here soon – look at this place it looks like a bomb hit it!

    KNOCK KNOCK! Good morning it’s Redgum Cleaning

     Oh My God, You’re here already!

    Does this sound like someone you know?

    Is this something you do?

    Let me go through the reasons why you don’t need to worry about the clean before the clean. Someone in your household made the decision to hire a cleaner to help assist your Family with keeping your home clean and tidy.

    You’ve probably done this for a multitude of reasons, one of them being to free up some of your time to be better spent elsewhere. Or it may be because you simply don’t like to do the cleaning yourself and find more value in hiring a Professional Service provider. Which-ever the reason may be, there is a reason why you have taking this step so let’s keep your reason top of mind.

    Another reason why the clean before the clean is a waste of your time is because you have hired a cleaner who will most likely be charging top dollar for their services so why not leave the entire thing to them. This is why you hired them isn’t – to free up more time? So why spend your time doing what you have essentially paid for?

    Another reason is if a cleaner knows you have pre-cleaned, they will continue to expect that and the moment you might be too busy to pre-clean, they will most likely try to charge you more because the house was messier, or that it took them more time than usual.

    Here are a few questions to consider:

    1. How will you know how effective your cleaner is at handling different work-loads?
    2. How dynamic are your cleaners?
    3. Can they adapt quickly to a changing environment like your home?

    If you answered No, then you know you have the wrong cleaners on your Team. Redgum will exceed your expectations on all areas.


    1. When you enter your home, you immediately can smell the Eucalyptus throughout the house.
    2. Your Tiles or Floorboards are shiny and clean
    3. Your Bathrooms and Toilets smell amazing and look fresh and clean, the Toilet roll is folded neatly.
    4. Your eyes are caught by the sparkling shine of your tap wear and sinks.
    5. Your Kitchen shines like never before, the splash backs are streak-free and clean, the range hood isn’t layered with grease, and the Stove top looks ready to be on the front of Home Magazine.


    You’ve hired the Cleaner, now you’re thinking what do I need to do now?

    Here are a few tips to consider, and this is what we also tell our Clients when we start with them.

    1. If you have children, tidy up any toys that may be on the floors
    2. If you have Pets, please put them outside, especially if they are not friendly.
    3. Sit back and relax, Go shopping, or go out and enjoy lunch or a walk along the beach

    This Client hired us to perform a End of Lease clean - which we will share the full picture's of the job when uploaded.

    There are heaps of People we talk to on a daily basis that really dislike having to clean the Oven of their homes, many of whom hire out this job to cleaners like ourselves.
