Cleaning service in Dubai after renovation

Taking on a renovation project can be exciting. Getting rid of the old furniture, old walls’ color, and replacing it with a new, brighter, more modern design, is really fulfilling. That said, it is not without a challenges as the excitement of giving your home a new look comes at the cost of constant noise, dirt, dust, and debris. The less fulfilling part comes after the builders have left. Even if you were renovating one part of your house, there is so much cleaning to be done in order to deal with all the mess. And someone has to do it, right? A good thing about the cleaning issue is that there are many cleaning services in Dubai that are willing to undertake after-renovation cleaning.

In order to make the after-renovation cleaning process easier, you can secure and protect the space around that area, therefore making it less exposed to dirt.

  1. Clear the site by removing valuable things – before you start doing anything, make sure you made the site safe and secure because that is your priority at the beginning of the renovation project.
  2. Empty the area – the area that is being renovated has to be empty of all the furniture before any action is taken.
  3. Protect the floor and use covers – to avoid any huge after-renovation cleaning, make sure the floor is well-protected with a proper cover
  4. Clean on a daily basis – don’t miss any day because at the end you will find yourself devastated by how much work is left to be done


After Renovation Cleaning

The project does not come to an end with the renovation part being done. Although the area that has been renovated might look clean, it still needs deeper cleaning as well as the rest of the house. In order for you to take a break after days of dealing with the whole project, we advise you to hire a home cleaning service that offers specialized, professional, deep cleaning. It’s not going to be that expensive and you will have your house cleaner and brand new within hours. This step also accompanies moving the furniture back into place, so you will definitely need some help.

There is a lot to be done by the cleaning service and you don’t want none of these steps to be skipped. Let’s take a look of the whole cleaning process and make sure the result will be a just renovated, shiny, clean, house.

  • Make sure they remove all the debris; vacuum the house; sweep the floors and other surfaces;
  • Wipe the surfaces with a wet cloth; use sanitizing wipe; air the house;
  • Double check for any paint spots left on the floor, on the surfaces; use cleaning tools and avoid any damage to happen;
  • Place the furniture at its place; clean the windows and hang up the curtain after you washed them;
  • Clean the rest of the house.

Only when you finish with the last step, you can say the renovation project is done. Luckily, there are very good cleaning services in Dubai to help you ease the process of after-renovation cleaning.



Nightmare for Every Mum in Dubai : Tantrums

All children throw tantrums sometimes

Temper Tantrums

I don’t think there is any mum in Dubai or anywhere else who hasn’t dealt with temper tantrums. One thing that parenting teaches you is patience and this comes in very handy when dealing with tantrums. A child can throw a tantrum anywhere anytime, even at places where you think they might have fun. Some parents find it very hard to deal with the tantrums. If you are one of those parents, this post is for you.

Understanding Why Kids Have Tantrums

Kids have just as much personality and individuality as an adult. They long for the same things, love, security, comfort, independence, etc. as adults. But they are dependent upon their elders or parents to fulfil most of their needs. When the adults fail to understand their needs or provide for them, a tantrum can happen. Being tired, sleepy, hungry, thirsty or simply bored are the most common causes of tantrums. They can also happen when children want something and cannot get it, or want their parents to do something which they refuse to do. All of us remember whining, crying, screaming, kicking, hitting, etc.  from our children for a toy or a candy that was refused or not provided. Tantrums can be annoying at the least. No parent wants to be spotted with a child that is screaming and crying in public. It is embarrassing.

Tips for Mum in Dubai to Control Tantrums

Though sometimes, it may seem impossible to pacify a child in the middle of a tantrum, it can be done. The best way to control tantrums is to try and prevent it. Make sure your child is not hungry or thirsty. Try not to go out when the child is hungry, tired or sleepy. Keep the child occupied so he or she is not bored. Always keep some snacks and a drink to give to your child. Make sure there are snacks and toys within reach of your child so he/she doesn’t have to rely upon you all the time. If despite this, the child still throws a tantrum, you need to deal with it as soon as possible.

Pay attention to the child: If the child begins to show signs of going into a tantrum, pay attention to his/her needs. This almost always helps to diffuse the situation.

Distract the Child: When a child is whiny or crying try to distract them by giving them some task to do. If you are out shopping, ask them to look for things you want in the store. This will keep the child occupied and kill the tantrum in the bud.

Reward the Child: If a child wants something and you do not mind buying it, tell the child that you will get it for them provided they behave while you finish your work. Always provide incentives for good behaviour.

Give them some control: It is good to let the child have some control over little things. Give them choices such as – Do you want to wear the pink pyjamas or the yellow one? Do you want cocoa milk or vanilla milk?

Do not make it into a battle of wills: Don’t be overbearing. Listen to your child and try to reason. If it works, well and good, if it doesn’t then sometimes it is best to give in and walk away. Never respond to a tantrum with anger or frustration. Patience and self-control is the key here.

Ignore them: Sometimes ignoring is the best policy. Warn your child to behave and if they do not listen, then ignore them. Walk off if you are in a public place leaving the child behind. At home, go to another room leaving the child alone. When ignored, the tantrums disappear pretty quickly.

It is best to take your child to a quiet place to calm down. This is especially true for tantrums in public places. Being away from the public eye helps get the anger and frustration out.

Mum in Dubai Looking for a Nanny

Spending quality time together is important

The Benefit of Being a Mum in Dubai

One great thing, that every mum in Dubai loves about living in here is the ease of finding domestic help. Raising a family of two young ones on one’s own is not an easy thing. As a mum in Dubai, I have found that babysitters and nannies too are easy to find. Moreover, it is also a lot cheaper to hire help than it is in Europe. Here, in Dubai, I can afford to have a full-time nanny to help me with my two little ones. Had I been back home in Italy, I would have had to think twice or get someone from my family to help me out.

Being Mum of Two is Busy

Every mother with two little ones knows just how busy it can be to look after two young children. With my younger one now teething and demanding constant attention, I had little time to spend with my older child. A few days of not enough attention, he grew restless and started throwing tantrums. I could not cope up with the demands of both so I decided to look for a nanny.

Finding in Dubai

Another young mother living in our building has a great nanny so I decided to ask her for some recommendations for babysitting in Dubai. She introduced me to an online resource for some of the best babysitters and Nannies in Dubai. It is easy to use and what’s more, you can compare prices and services of various babysitting agencies in your area before hiring. The service is supported by a smartphone app which allows the user to easily monitor and leave instructions for the nanny. I looked up the service as soon as I got home and searched for a babysitter or a nanny in my area. There were several agencies listed there and I picked up one after comparing the prices of all the options.

Nanny is Such a Help!

I scheduled to interview a candidate the next day. The person who arrived was a woman in her early thirties. She was an Indian who had accompanied her husband to Dubai and had a valid work visa to work in Dubai. This was a big help as I did not want to have a Nanny who was working illegally. The woman had two children of her own, both in their teens and old enough for her to work. I asked her for references and she gave me the details of two families for whom she babysat occasionally.

Next, it was time to check the references from the families and I got a great feedback from them. Then, I introduced her to both my children. My son took to her immediately and my daughter did not mind a new face in the house. I explained what I wanted her to do and asked her to start immediately. She learned the ropes of my household within a few days and took care of the needs of both my children. It was a relief to have someone helping me out so I could have time for myself and my children.

I am no longer exhausted all the time, thanks to My husband and I can now safely leave our kids home and go out for a dinner or a movie without any worries.

If you need to know more about and how it worked for me contact me and I will be glad to help you.
