How Many Hours Do You Spend Cleaning Each Week?

on Monday, 27 February 2017. Posted in News

At McCreery Contract Cleaning we have a huge interest in housekeeping and cleaning. We all know that household life in the 1950s was more arduous, with no gadgets such as washing machines or dishwashers to lighten the load.We were shocked to discover that housework in the 1950s took a whopping 57 hours a week on average.

The introduction of technology - such as dishwashers and microwaves - is thought to be behind the fall in housework chores over the last five decades.

Unbelievable as this may seem compared to today’s standards; would it surprise you to learn that according to the latest research, women do more than double the amount of housework than that of Irish men!

Facts and Figures

According to Good Housekeeping over 92% of women do at least part of the cooking and nearly 70% do all of it! Women spend almost 20 hours a week on household chores. A few hours of chores here and there might not seem too bad, but when you add it all up over time, it amounts to a large chunk of our lives.

on Monday, 23 January 2017. Posted in News

As we start the New Year the post-Christmas clean up brings with it some unique cleaning challenges. From the lingering scent of a slow-cooked Christmas bird, to the overused washing machine. But fear not. We at McCreery Contract Cleaning will give you our top tips and tricks for tackling the cleaning after Christmas.

Cleaning the Grimy Post-Christmas Dinner Oven

Between the Christmas bird, the roasted veg, and whatever else you cook, the oven takes a battering during the festive period. So this is a good chance to give your oven the cleaning it deserves.

In fact, most kitchen appliances can be cleaned using homemade cleaners you can easily make in a matter of seconds with products you probably already have in your pantry.

Baking soda is a very effective cleaner; it’s abrasive enough to remove caked on debris but won’t scratch surfaces.
