Cleaning is a tough but fulfilling job. It takes more than strong guts to survive in the industry. There are preparations that are necessary for success such as investing on the right equipment and being knowledgeable on how to use them wisely.
Now more than ever, it was proven by the current circumstances how important hygiene and household cleanliness are. That’s why professions related to cleaning are also being seen as vital. Utility employees are even considered as front liners in the fight against COVID-19.
Going back to our topic, let’s have a brief comparison between working under an agency and being a freelancer in this industry. Under an agency, everything that you will use is commonly provided by the institution or clients that you will be working on. This means you don’t have to worry about looking for supplies. However, this will also mean you won’t have control on the quality of your equipment. On the other hand, if you are a freelancer, you may be required to spend and invest on your own tools. But the good thing is you can make sure you can find the best quality of cleaning equipment that you can afford. This way you are also free to find tools that are compatible to your work.
Here we’ll discuss some of the basic cleaning equipment that you will be needing if you decide to enter the cleaning industry.
Aside for convenience, people who are practical may also find it useful to always have a towel or two within arm’s reach when cleaning especially smooth surfaces. Cleaning cloths are not only easy to use but are also very effective in the quick removal of dirt, dust, and stains with or without a cleaning agent.
Having said that, we offer you Lola Wowables™. A reusable, biodegradable, and eco-friendly alternative to the usual paper towel which is 5x stronger and 4x more absorbent.
As much as we want to be gentle when doing things, some tasks such as cleaning require extra force and coarseness. In this case, having a brush can be found useful. If you are into tough cleaning but doesn’t want to hurt your hands, we recommend Lola Handled Scrubber built with an iron style handle to give you comfort and ease while using it.
Sponge and Scourer
Whether you need this or not depends on the nature and scope of your work. If it includes cleaning or dishes, cook wares, or containers, then you may find this necessary to buy. Here we have what we call the Lola Pot Brite™ Scour N' Sponge, a 2-in-1 dishwashing tool that has everything you need for cleaning tough grease and stains.
As one of the most basic but frequently used cleaning tools, this is a must-have for you as a house/home cleaner especially if you don’t have the budget for a vacuum or if you want to save electricity.
Who needs the conventional broom if you can have the new and improved Lola Angle Broom It is specifically made to reach narrow gaps and spaces so no corner will be left uncleaned.
Finally, the need for this one along with its effectiveness relies on the type of material that you can find around the area you are cleaning. This is usually advisable on most smooth surfaces. But with the conventional mop, we are usually boxed to just cleaning floors. So, for a change, we present to you our very own version, the Lola Rola Sticky Mop with its adhesive mop head and ergonomic handle. With this you can clean not only floors but also every wall and ceiling that you can reach.
