Keep your house spic and span

Painted or wallpaper-decorated walls can be hard to clean with fingerprints, moulds, dust, smudges and dirt embedded in them.

Rather than do the hard work yourself, why don’t you employ the services of a professional cleaning company to degrease, scrub, wipe and polish all walls of your home and give your living space the needed facelift?

Cleaning companies can manually remove grease from kitchen walls, and smudge, surface dirt and dust from walls in other parts of the house. They can even vacuum drapes if you request them to do so.

They usually begin by dusting the walls and checking if the paint used can withstand the stain removal chemicals. Wallpaper is generally cleaned dry except the vinyl type which can be cleaned with a damp cloth.

Other services offered include cleaning marks on doors and door frames, dusting and cleaning skirting boards, polishing glass and mirrors on the wall as well as cleaning light switches and power points.

Most cleaning companies have hourly rates that range from Dh30 to Dh65 depending on the number of hours required, the size of the area to be cleaned and the chemicals needed for cleaning.

Handy Hints
• Utilise cleaning services of trained, trusted staff
• Beware of providers without proper accreditation
• Cleaning rates generally range from Dh30 to Dh65
