E HOME SERVICES
ehomeservices.com.sg, tel: 6844-3044.

What They Do 

They offer a comprehensive spring-cleaning service, as well as dedicated services like sanitising sofas (fabric ones only), curtains, mattresses and carpets. However, you need to provide them with cleaning products and a vacuum cleaner to clean your home, or pay an additional sum for them to bring their own. The home cleaning and upholstery departments are independent, so you might need to coordinate with different customer service representatives.

  • Mattress and Carpet: They use a combination of foam cleaning and vacuuming for mattresses and carpets. Carpets are taken to their facility to be cleaned.
  • Curtains: If you just need to sanitise your drapes, they will steam-clean them. But if the curtains have very stubborn stains, opt for their laundry service instead. 

Rates

​$349 (excludes cleaning products) for spring-cleaning by two cleaners for five hours, for a five-room HDB flat. Additional $110 for cleaning products (you get to keep them afterwards), and $30 if they need to bring their vacuum cleaner. Prices for the cleaning of sofas, carpets, curtains and mattresses range from $30 for a mid-length curtain to $180 for a three-seater sofa. Prices stated are nett.

Chinese New Year Surcharge

A 20 per cent surcharge for spring-cleaning bookings from Jan 15-28. No surcharge for other cleaning services.

BEFORE YOU BOOK...

  • When booking a spring-cleaning service, make a list of your highest-priority tasks – including things that are too cumbersome for you to handle – so that you can communicate these needs to the cleaning company.
  • If you would like stubborn stains be removed from upholstery, send in pictures first to check if they can be treated.
