  • Minsan, mas tipid mag pa-cleaning service. Mas tipid sa mental health and time mo. 

    Imagine -- you've been staring at the piece of Play-Doh that your two-year-old stuck on the wall, and you and your partner can’t summon up the energy to clean since you’re both knee-deep in WFH. Even if you clean your home regularly, treating your home to a deep cleaning service or having laundry done can help refresh your space and your mental health.

    For many of us, outsourcing the work is often the time- and energy-saving solution. Sometimes it’s the only solution. For example, if your beloved pet can’t seem to stop peeing on the same sofa, baka it’s time to call a professional. For some of us who are battling depression and/or anxiety and can’t even wash the dishes, a cleaning or laundry service can be a lifesaver.

    What do we say here at Smart Parenting? Ask for help and support! We make that easier for you with these 11 cleaning and laundry services to call when your hands (and mind!) are full.

    Finding a deep clean service that works for you

    Cleeneco offers deep-cleaning services for homes, offices and even cars, and can tackle the dreaded mess after construction or renovation. They also offer disinfection services, and have their own line of cleaning products.

    Happy Helpers and CleanX Manila offer a similar range of services, and include air sanitation and disinfection -- definitely a bonus for COVID times!

    Get the stains out of your favorite couch or loveseat with deep upholstery cleaning from Clean Patrol PH or celeb favorite Sweep Inspirations. Sweep Inspirations also offers for “secret” services, such as grease trap cleaning (a must!) or cleaning hard to reach high windows or even garden maintenance.

    Sulit offers can help justify the cost of deep cleaning if you book them for services you already need. Ate Girl offers free grease trap cleanings if you book for a four-hour cleaning or longer. They also have other home services -- including home-service massages and, um, post-sex clean up (no joke!).

    If you live in Bulacan or Batangas, Jiffy Cleaners offers their services within and around Metro Manila, and seem to specialize in larger homes and spaces.

    If you’re concerned about chemical cleaners and prefer to use organic or natural cleaners, Neaty Gritters only uses environmentally-friendly products for their deep-cleaning services.  Although most cleaning services will happily use your personal cleaning products if asked, the cost of cleaning materials is often included in the quote.

    I can’t be bothered… to do the laundry this week!

    It’s important to have your suki laundry service that can pick your laundry and deliver it, washed, folded, and dried for when emergencies strike. Even if the emergency is: you’d rather not do laundry this week. While your barangay laundry shop for sure can’t be beat, you can easily get your laundry done through your smartphone.

    You can book laundry pick-up through apps like The Laundry Project, and select the services you want, which includes dry cleaning per piece. The Mr. Jeff and Suds franchises also have a similar app that detects which branch is near you to help you book your laundry service. Both also offer carpet cleaning services.

    SWOSH is a laundry app that works like Grab. The app partners with laundry services in your area and does the pick-up and delivery for you. It’s great if you’ve just moved in and haven’t found a neighborhood laundry shop that you like.

    If you prefer to do your own laundry, you can reserve slots at self-service laundry shops like Quicklean and do laundry in a safe environment.
