Office Cleaning London – A Little Note for the Weekend in London…

Well here we are, another cloudy day in London and already it’s come to the end of the week.

Don’t you think it’s strange that even though there has been lots of wet weather in London these past few weeks, we are still in drought? Still, there is more wet whether due to come over the long weekend. It’s a shame really because it’s usually over the bank holiday weekend that we do a lot of things which would involve going outside. Maybe do a bit of gardening, go to the park, or even go shopping on Oxford Street in Central London. However, this wet weather will stop a lot of us being able to do all that this weekend. Alternatively, how about the idea of having a duvet day with a nice hot chocolate at home instead? That’s something which is always good to do when the weather is miserable outside.

Remember, we do all sorts of specialist cleaning services, such as; carpet cleaning, spot cleaning and hard floor maintenance. So if the floors in your Central London office get dirty during this long period of rain, you know who to contact for a free, no obligation quote…

Millards Cleaning of course!

Have a great weekend!

London Office Cleaning – Mouritz Botha: Carpet Cleaner to England International

England International washed carpets for an office cleaning company

In previous blog posts here at Millards Office Cleaning and Window Cleaning Services, we’ve already uncovered some famous celebrities who used to be Office Cleaners and Window Cleaners before they were famous,. Well now we’ve one more to add to that list; England Rugby player Mouritz Botha.

Office Cleaning London

Mouritz Botha running at Scotland during England’s victory against Scotland at Murrayfield.

Before staring in both England’s first two victories in this seasons Six Nations, the 30 year old Saracens lock had a longer journey than most to make it to the Big Time.

Born in Vryheid, Kwazulu-Natal in South Africa, he was rejected for being too small to cut the mustard professionally by a whole host of rugby teams in his native country.

Instead of losing heart, Botha’s response was to email several English clubs and see if he could get on any teams over here. One team, Bedford Athletic, got back in touch and offered him a trial. In 2004 Bedford Athletic played in the National league Three North, and actually dropped out of that division in Bothra’s first season. This meant he had to find work elsewhere to supplement his income as he and the rest of the team struggled to get back in the league.

Washing Carpets for an Office Cleaning Company to England Star

Washing carpets for an office cleaning company proved a strong test for the South African. “It was the most difficult job I’ve ever done”, he said. “It was crazy hours and not something I really enjoyed! Back at the office there was a tumble dryer about three metres high. I dried the carpets and then had to roll and fold them. I would about six tons a day, which was brutal. The shifts were from six in the morning until two in the afternoon. Then I’d go home, have a nap, and go to training.”

Mouritz Bothra was equally as impressive in England’s tense victory over Italy a week later.

Botha’s hard work and dedication, self-belief finally paid off and he became a full time professional for Bedford Blues in 2006.

“I always believed I could get here, I always had a deep-down belief,” he said. “But it doesn’t count for much as you have to convince a lot of other people that you can do it and that takes time. It’s been a long road and I’m very pleased to get here. There was always hope along the way but to achieve it finally has been brilliant. When I came over originally it was to have a shot at playing professional rugby in England. It was a long shot and I knew it would be hard work but through determination and staying focused I achieved it in the end.”

Window Cleaning in London to be revolutionised by new super spray

Window Cleaning breakthrough

NeverWet coating could revolutionise the way we clean windows. A brand new silicone spray from manufacturers Ross Nanotech actually repels dirty water and oils, leaving surfaces not only clean, but practically bacteria free.

Implications for London Window Cleaners

The implications for window cleaning in London are obvious – it could be made so much easier as it is impossible for dirt or grease to attach themselves to any glass buildings or windows.

NeverWet could revolutionise the way Window Cleaning is done in London

As well as protecting buildings and glass from dirt, the manufacturers claim the spray will minimise ice build-up and actually works up to six times better as an anti-corrosive than other poly-urethane coatings.
The most interesting of application though is for the hospital industry, as NeverWet claim the coating – originally designed to be used in hospitals – reduces the threat of bacteria to virtually zero as no dirty oils or water can come in contact with any surfaces.

Music Blog #2 – The Window Cleaner – George Formby

Cleaning Windows

It had to happen really didn’t it? In a blog from an Office Cleaning and Window Cleaning Company it was inevitable. You knew it was coming.

When I’m Cleaning Windows

Number 2 on our Music Blog Playlist is of course George Formby‘s classic comedy hit The Window Cleaner AKA When I’m Cleaning Windows.

The Window Cleaner first appeared in the 1936 film Keep Your Seats Please, and was so successful that it spawned a sequel, a song imaginatively called The Window Cleaner (No 2).

A dance mix of the song sampling only the first eight lines of George Formby’s original vocals from the first version of The Window Cleaner surfaced in the UK charts in December 1994. It wasn’t as good as the original Window Cleaner!

Window Cleaning Tools of the Trade – The Bosun’s Chair

The Bosun’s Chair – Every Window Cleaner’s Best Friend

Vital to Commercial Window Cleaning in London is the Bosun’s Chair. There’s no way you’d be able to clean all the windows on all the tall glass fronted buildings in Central London without one. Here at Millards Cleaning Services our Window Cleaners probably spend more time sat in a Bosun’s Chair than anywhere else. Even the pub!

Window Cleaning in London using a Bosun's Chair

All London Window Cleaners will be skilled in using a Bosun's Chair

The Bosun’s Chair originated in the Navy. A Boatswain is a warrant officer in the British or US Navy, or a subordinate officer in the merchant navy, responsible for most things that happened on the deck of a boat. A Bosun’s Chair was originally designed to haul a sailor up the mast on a halyard to do repair work or inspect the rigging. The first chairs were simply wooden planks with stout lines passing underneath it and up into a bridle at chest level. Early versions suffered from having no back support meaning that sailors would have only one hand to work with, the other holding on for dear life so you didn’t fall backwards out of the chair.

Window Cleaner’s Tools

Nowadays, fabric chairs are most common, with comfortable backs and padded seats for today’s pampered derriers. It’s virtually impossible to fall out of one now, leaving both hands free for work. Some models even have tool straps and built in pockets tailored specifically for the needs of the user. Our Window Cleaners have room for their squeegees, buckets, and chamois leathers. Everything they need to clean the windows of any building in London.
