As the seasons shift in Malta, households across the island undergo a remarkable transformation. Brooms, mops, and dusters resurface from their hiding places, marking the commencement of an honoured tradition — the annual spring clean. For many, the benefits of this mega-chore vastly outweigh its laboriousness. And that’s because spring cleaning is seen to be much more than a thorough tidy-up; it’s a way to welcome in the new season, create a clean and fresh home, and promote a sense of renewal within the household.
Despite homeowners' best intentions to achieve a spotless abode, many overlook certain vital cleaning tasks that will make all the difference to the overall cleanliness of their home. Recognising these common oversights, Clentec, a reputable cleaning specialist in Malta, has taken it upon itself to enlighten individuals about these often-neglected aspects of the spring clean. With its expertise, it offers a professional spring cleaning service designed to leave no area within the home untouched or underestimated.
“In our line of work, we often encounter individuals who express frustration over persistent allergies despite their best efforts to keep their homes tidy and their windows shut. While they may attribute these allergies to external factors like the weather, what they may not realise is that overlooked areas within their homes could be the actual triggers. That’s because conducting a proper spring clean involves more than just surface-level changes, such as swapping out carpets and transitioning from winter to summer clothes. It entails understanding the hidden culprits like dust mites and bacteria, invisible to the naked eye, that accumulate in unexpected corners and surfaces of the home, leading to a variety of allergies and potential damage,” explains Monique Bonett, a cleaning specialist at Clentec.
With a remarkable legacy spanning over 25 years, Clentec takes immense pride in its position as one of Malta's most innovative and experienced cleaning providers, boasting a dedicated team of impeccably uniformed operatives and personnel who are trained to the high standards of the British Institute of Cleaning Science. The company’s extensive array of services is designed to cater to every cleaning need imaginable, encompassing daily cleaning, window cleaning, carpet and upholstery cleaning, floor polishing, as well as meticulous one-off cleaning for remarkable results, both indoors and outdoors.
When it comes to its spring cleaning services, Clentec takes a highly tailored approach. It all begins with a personalised and free-of-charge on-site consultation, where a senior manager arrives to carefully evaluate and audit the home. During the inspection, they listen to the homeowner’s unique requirements, collaborating with them to devise a comprehensive plan of action that can accommodate all circumstances and budgets, whether one desires a focused cleaning of a specific room or a deep clean of the entire premises. So, what spring cleaning tasks do they cover specifically?
“We offer a comprehensive range of services that go beyond the conventional, ensuring no nook or cranny is left untouched. From steam cleaning mattresses to vacuuming walls, ceilings, and curtains, we go the extra mile to bring a new level of freshness to your home. Our dedicated team even reaches those high spots like the top of your wardrobe or cleaning air-con units, where a regular cleaner wouldn't venture. Furthermore, we provide a specialised upholstery, floor, and carpet cleaning service that will leave your fitted rugs, carpets, curtains, and sofas immaculate,” says Monique.
In addition to its expertise and knowledge, she shares that Clentec goes the extra mile by utilising specialised cleaning products and tools that are expertly designed to get the job done efficiently and effectively. For example, the team makes use of special vacuum cleaners with 0.3-micron filters, the same type trusted in hospitals and clinics. These provide superior suction power, she adds, far beyond what one would find in an average vacuum cleaner. Moreover, Clentec takes pride in its commitment to eco-friendliness and has developed its very own line of cleaning products under the brand name VAP.
“At Clentec, we prioritise the safety and wellbeing of our clients by ensuring that our products are carefully formulated to avoid unnecessary chemical mixtures that could potentially harm pipes or surfaces. Our approach revolves around a ‘less is more’ philosophy, where we only use high-quality and refined formulations. This also allows us to customise certain enzymes and essential oils based on individual client needs. For instance, if a client has an allergy to lavender, we can easily substitute it with a lemon essential oil alternative. During every consultation, we take into consideration our client’s allergies, ensuring that we use appropriate chemicals that won’t cause any harm or adverse reactions,” Monique adds, before explaining that a range of VAP products are conveniently available in supermarkets or can be purchased directly from their online store, allowing clients to continue using their preferred choices around their homes.
In addition to taking care of the essential in-house chores, Clentec lends a professional helping hand with a variety of external cleaning tasks that are recommended for regular maintenance. From the daunting task of window cleaning to the meticulous cleaning of solar panels and even water tanks, the Clentec team is equipped to tackle these challenging jobs.
“We understand that tasks like climbing up high ladders or onto roofs can be risky for individuals, which is why we’re here to take that burden off their shoulders. Let us handle the heights and ensure your external spaces are clean. As part of our commitment to eco-friendliness, we employ ionised water to clean solar panels, which is free from chemicals or soaps. This ensures a spotless surface without any damage, and the clean water simply flows down the drains, leaving no environmental impact. Additionally, we provide meticulous water tank cleaning services, involving emptying the tank, vacuuming to remove debris, and performing a thorough scrub or steam treatment based on the level of algae and residue present.”
Evidently, spring cleaning goes far beyond a mere surface clean, requiring attention to overlooked areas and specialised tasks. With Clentec, Monique attests, you can leave the arduous jobs in their capable hands, freeing up valuable time to prioritise what truly matters. The company’s flexibility in scheduling ensures that it can accommodate a variety of needs, even if it means working during evenings or at unconventional hours. Plus, it's not just homes that benefit from itsservices. Clentec extends its expertise to schools, offices, hotels, retail spaces, and commercial establishments alike.
