5 Office Cleaning Tips to Welcome the Chinese New Year

Preparations for the Chinese New Year are not limited to personal and home spaces. Preparing your office for the New Year is also a must because, after all, we spend most of our day there, 5-6 days a week.

Luck, Fortune, Chi, Yang or energies course through around us, not just our homes but also in buildings and offices. It is just right that we also make necessary arrangements to ensure harmony and prosperity ensues the office all year round.

Here are a few tips that can help you, whether you own the office or just an employee:


It’s hard to keep track of the things you need and don’t need on a daily basis because of work schedule. Take the time before Chinese New Year to throw or give away the stuff you don’t need anymore so that luck and fortune will have a space to flow through (or stay) in the New Year. Throw away broken or unused items, especially electronic items. This applies not just on your work table, but at the main entrance as well. 

(Hey, we can help you with sorting out stuff in your office or even at home! We have a reliable Premium Assistant service. )


Natural light is more energizing than light bulbs, and most of all, it’s free! You need all the people in your office to be full of energy to get things done and on time. If this not possible, make sure your office is well lit. Switch to LED bulbs get the most illumination and best energy efficiency. If your office have upgraded to LED lights already but still seem gloomy, you might need a detailed office cleaning which ensures your light bulbs are rid of dusts and cobwebs.


If you’re a business owner, or an employee with the liberty of rearranging furniture in the office, re-position the desk to create harmony among you and your colleagues.

If you are the owner, president, or a manager, place your table at the “Command position” – back end of the office facing the others or facing the door. This way, you will have a view of who is present, who is working, or simply, you wouldn’t be surprised about anything good or bad.

If you are an employee, do not sit or set your table back-to-back or face-to-face. It brings disharmony. If this is inevitable, place a divider or a potted plant between the two of you. 


No matter how good the pay is or the benefits are, there are some people who tend to idle, or is unsuccessful in their career, or simply inclined to to be lazy in the office, and it might be due to the colors surrounding them. The walls or furniture might be sending the wrong energy or signals to them. A fading white wall, a worn out red office chair, a faded brown carpet or a dull green sofa doesn’t quite portray the image of harmony and fortune. As simple as repainting your walls to light green will enhance creativity in the office or perhaps orange to give motivation. Switching to blue office chairs inspires success and loyalty. Perhaps a carpet shampoo or sofa shampoo will bring back the luster and hue of the already auspicious colors in your office.


There’s a modern Chinese proverb that goes “When you use plastic for Feng Shui, you get plastic results”. If you are going to use plants as indoor ornaments, as dividers, or for blocking “Poison Arrows”, use natural plants as much as possible. Place a water fountain at the entrance instead of using a Bluetooth speaker to emanate sound of water, or buy actual fish to place in fish tanks instead of plastic ones. Aside from bringing luck and fortune, they also help filter the air inside the room.

May the coming Chinese New Year bring you good health and fortune! Welcome the New Year with a smile and stress-free.

Cleaning Post Construction and Post Renovation of Homes and Offices

condo-cleaningYour newly constructed or renovated home or office is your new baby, your new headquarters or crib, your family or staff’s new home. For it to be truly beautiful and perfect, it must also be clean and healthy to live in. With all the construction dust and debris settling in, you are sure into a hard day’s worth of cleaning. But you don’t need to worry because there are ways to have it cleaned and prepared before “the big day”.


Before you have the new furniture moved in, wear your rubber gloves and face mask and get ready to get dirty as we make the cleaning step by step:

  1. Collect all construction debris, large and small. This will be the bulk of the dirt. Sweep or vacuum the entire floor to get rid of uncollected nails, wood splinters and cement powders. Open all the cabinets and drawers so you could see the bigger picture. If you move in with your furniture, these dusts and debris will stick to your new stuff and would make the cleaning process longer.
  2. De-dust or wipe/mop the ceilings and walls first. Start wiping counter tops, cabinets and closets. This will scatter a little dust on the floor, but we will get back to that later.
  3. Wipe the windows and window sill.
  4. Sweep or vacuum the floor for the last time and then mop the floors with diluted liquid disinfectant.
  5. Lastly, clean the toilet. Make sure the grout (white cement in between tile) are dry before scrubbing any part of your toilet.

Here’s a checklist to help ensure that every part of your newly constructed/renovated home or office is clean up to the last inch:


  • Cabinet doors (front and inside) are cleaned
  • Counter tops and shelves wiped, including the sink
  • Surfaces of appliances cleaned (stove, oven, fridge, microwave, etc)
  • Kitchen walls, baseboards and surfaces wiped
  • Windows, window sill and tracks (if any) cleaned
  • Doorknob, door frames, doors, light switches wiped
  • Trash removed
  • Floor vacuumed and mopped


  • Bathtub, shower walls, glass doors (if any) and sink cleaned and sanitized
  • Toilet bowl cleaned and sanitized
  • Mirrors wiped and cleaned
  • Cabinet doors (front and inside) wiped and cleaned
  • Windows, window sill and tracks (if any) cleaned
  • Doorknob, door frames, doors, light switches wiped
  • Trash removed
  • Floor is mopped and dried


  • Walls, baseboards and surfaces wiped
  • Closet doors front and inside cleaned
  • Carpeted floors vacuumed / Hard surface floors vacuumed and mopped
  • Mirrors cleaned
  • Windows, window sill and tracks (if any) cleaned
  • Doorknob, door frames, doors, light switches wiped
  • Trash removed
  • Floor is mopped and dried


  • Walls, baseboards, tables, chairs and surfaces wiped
  • Doorknob, door frames, doors, light switches wiped
  • Trash removed
  • Floor is mopped and dried

Now that you are ready to move in, all that is left to do is maintaining its cleanliness. Like what we have mentioned in office cleaning tips article, getting the whole team involved in keeping your place clean is one of the key make sure your place is tidy. If during the cleaning process (or prior to), things get out of hand, a professional cleaning service company is the best solution you can have. They also know that it is important to have the cleaning completed in one day because you need to move in to your place as soon as possible.

Why Do Expats in Manila Outsource their Condo and Office Cleaning (and Why You Should Too)

For decades, thousands of foreign expatriates have been visiting and living in the Philippines, owning condominium units, setting up offices and businesses, and spending most of their year here than their home country. If you have not noticed yet, most of them do not hire household helpers or cleaning staff at work, and instead outsource them from either acquaintances who know someone who can do it, or from professional cleaning service providers.

Why do they do that? Simple answer: Value for their money

We, as Filipinos, know the value or the salary of a helper or a janitor per month, and thinking paying close to or more than that sum of money for a day’s work from a professional cleaning service provider seems absurd. But what these Expatriates see (that we don’t), is the value that you get.

  • Your home or office cleaned from top to bottom in just a day (not on a daily progress)
  • A professionally trained crew or team cleaning the place, all at the same time
  • You don’t need to worry about getting (or storing) the right (and large) equipment
  • You don’t need to worry about getting the right cleaning materials
  • You don’t need to worry about employee benefits, incentives and overtime fees, no liabilities after the work is done
  • Keeps your home private, and your office secured
  • You don’t need to worry where to board and lodge your helper

Since the rise of the condominium buildings, home and office space became smaller, and adding a non-income generating personnel might not be practical. With the latest events in the Philippines concerning labor and employment, just wages and demolishing contractualization practices are strongly being fought for. So don’t stress yourself with these issues and instead outsource your cleaning tasks from a professional cleaning service provider.

CMDA Condo & Office cleaning services and their crew are justly compensated in accordance to Philippine Labor Laws. All cleaning custodians sent to clean your home and office are regular employees, which are at the same time, trained to the highest cleaning standards.

How Outsourced Cleaning Services Can Make Your Business Grow


If you are running a small or medium size company or restaurant, you would probably be relying on some staff or employee for cleaning services that is even outside their job description. Yes, it’s expensive to hire another one, much more a team, for a task that is so simple, necessary, but most of the time, overlooked. A lot of boss or business owners thinks that a regular cleaner is non-revenue generating position. But honestly, you wouldn’t hire an electrician to fix a plumbing problem right? Or expect a messenger to clean your office like what hotel housekeepers do. To get the best results out of office cleaning or restaurant cleaning is outsourcing the cleaning service team on a weekly, bi-monthly or monthly basis. Here’s why:

Reduce overhead costs

Outsourced cleaning services can provide you a detailed general cleaning at reasonable costs. It can be a one time deep cleaning followed by weekly or bi-monthly maintenance, or it could be a 2-3 times a week staff appointment to keep your place in shape. No other upkeep necessary like paying for benefits, allowances, looking for places to store cleaning materials, no additional training fees. Let’s look at this picture: when you hire a staff to clean your office on a daily basis, he or she is paid at least the minimum wage, plus company/mandatory benefits. You would also need to purchase cleaning equipment and consumables like disinfectant, all purpose cleaners, spray bottles and the like. Let’s say you are paying P 10,000 for an employee to do the cleaning, add in the cost of a vacuum ( at least P 6,000), and other materials (roughly P 2,000 to begin with). That is at least P 18,000 in total for the first month and P 12,000 for the succeeding months. Now, let us say your office is around 100 square meters. At an average, a professional cleaning service company would charge P 8,000 for a one time general cleaning of your office, which would already include 2 staff and all the cleaning materials needed. Right at that point you can already see the savings! If you would want a weekly or a bi-monthly, that is also negotiable.

Reliability and Quality Professional Cleaning Services

Because you know that you are hiring people who are in the business of cleaning, trained to make your office or restaurant feel like brand new again, you know you are putting your money into good use. No matter how efficient or knowledgeable your staff are with a vacuum or broom, a trained professional cleaning service crew will do a better job. When you schedule a cleaning appointment with a cleaning service company, you don’t need to worry about a cleaning staff not reporting for work on those days. You will always have the peace of mind that someone will be there to clean your office when you need it. No “If’s” and no “buts”.

Refocus your attention on thing that generate revenue

Maintaining a clean and sanitized office or restaurant is important for business, but it is simply not the main selling proposition of a business, and they don’t directly generate revenue, unless you are a cleaning service company yourself. Maintenance functions can easily and cost efficiently be delegated to an outsourced cleaning service company so you and the company could focus on core competencies.   Outsourcing your office or restaurant cleaning is more affordable than you think.
