General Rules When You Engage A Part-time Cleaner

  1. If there are particular tasks that require prioritisation or are extremely important to you, communicate them to the cleaner at the very beginning. This is to avoid any miscommunication on the expectations required. 
  2. Be reasonable on what needs to be done within the hours booked. If there are numerous areas that require deep cleaning, spilt it up into various sessions.

For The Entire Home

Basic chores include vacuuming and mopping floors. Sanitising high-touch surfaces such as light switches, door handles, and TV remotes is also important to keep germs away.


If you see dust starting to accumulate on fixtures such as ceiling fans, pendant lights and window blinds, equip the part-timer cleaner with extendable cleaning tools so they wouldn’t need to climb to reach.

For Living Room

Common cleaning in the living room involves vacuuming upholstery, carpet, and changing cushion cases. 

Wiping of furniture surfaces range from the coffee table, entryway cabinet, TV console, and mirrors. You might also require the cleaning of home decor items such as vases, photo frames, and more as dust tend to accumulate overtime.

Tip: If you would like the part-timer cleaner to clean behind bulky furniture such as an entryway console table, do move the furniture slightly forward before the session begins.

For Bathroom

The moist environment in bathrooms makes the occurrence of mold, hard water stains, and mildew extremely prevalent.

Scrubbing of bathroom basin, sink faucet, grout, toilet bowl, and the showerhead is required regularly to get rid of germs and bacteria while keeping their shine. 

Regular cleaning of water stains on mirrors and glass shower screens prevents hard water stains from forming too.

If you adopt daily clean-as-you-go habits when you cook, your part-timer cleaner could simply help you to spot clean appliances (e.g microwave, oven interior, boiler/water dispenser, coffee machine), kitchen accessories (e.g condiment holders, utensils holder, dish rack), and the exterior of kitchen cabinets and fridge. 

Other greasy and germy areas include the kitchen hood, stovetops, backsplashes, and kitchen sink. These will require more attention from your part-time helper.

For Bedroom

A part-timer helper will often help in changing bed linen weekly.

Communicate to them where to get clean bedsheets, place dirty ones, and if she/he should help run the washing machine for you. 

The other cleaning required would be giving your bedside and vanity table a wipe down to remove dirt, dust, and stains.
