We are a small Scandinavian Cleaning Company, who specialize in one-off cleaning jobs. We are looking for individuals/pairs/couples to join our team.

I'm also looking for a supervisor looking after organizing/team/quality check etc. to be discussed further.

We do one-off cleans, spring cleaning, end of tenancy cleaning and cleaning for people who are either moving in or out of homes, newly built homes and renovations. We also do Home Staging, helping with moving furniture and setting up Staging's. Lots of variety - so the days are never the same. Most jobs will be on North Shore, but we also travel further down Auckland, West and North. Most likely we travel in my car, but you will sometime need to take your own car/transport.

Sometimes it can be quiet and other times we can be very busy, working mostly between 3 to 7 hours on the day in normal hours from 9am to 5pm during the week.

Sometimes we work on weekends and you will be paid extra. Other times there will be no work at all.

Sometimes we get very short notice, less the 24 hours to attend to a job.

We work in teams for most jobs, depending on the size of the job. Usually there will be 2-5 people on each job.

The cleaning skills include (but you don't need them all and you can be trained up and don't need them all):

Normal house cleaning (including kitchen and bathrooms) as well our extra service that include jobs as:

 Oven Cleaning;

 Walls & Ceilings;

 Blinds;

 Carpet cleaning

 Windows;

 Water blasting / House wash;

 Lifting skills for lighter furniture (for the Home Staging part of my business).



Ideal candidate:

 English speaking;

 Good communication skills and positive attitude;

 Physically strong and fit;

 Some cleaning skills/flair needed;

 Reliable, diligent and flexible;

 Own car (often if jobs further away, we go in my car)or need to take public transport to jobs or pick up places);

 Good with your phone (so I can get a prompt answer)

Work Visa a must and no cash jobs.

Supervisor position is an option, working mostly as a cleaner to start with to learn the business to know.

Please call/text me direct on 0212362284 or email me Susanne@littlemermaid.co.nz

Mother's warning after sun's reflection from mirror burns daughter's book

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Victoria Short smelt smoke in her home, but couldn’t find any fire.

Victoria Short smelt smoke in her home, but couldn’t find any fire.

Unbeknownst to her, a book in her daughter’s bedroom had been smouldering away as she worked from another room.

After several checks of the house offered no hints to where the smoke was coming from, Short continued work, oblivious to the fact the pages of 11-year-old Annalina’s favourite book, Code Name Bananas, were slowly becoming ash.

Annalina, who has a penchant for make-up, was gifted a dinner plate-sized desk mirror for Christmas, which had been sitting on her bookshelf beside a window ever since.

When Annalina arrived home from school, she noticed the book was burnt through its spine and halfway through the pages.

“It just didn’t make sense,” said Short, who is the deputy chair of the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board.

Upon further investigation, Short realised Annalina’s mirror was facing the bookshelf.

“The sunlight seems to have come through the window, hit the concave mirror, and perfectly reflected the magnified sunlight onto the corner of the book.”

Short said the incident made her feel sick to her stomach, adding that she felt lucky the book, and the rest of the bookshelf, didn't catch fire.

“I would never have imagined a mirror could have the potential to burn our house down, never in my wildest dreams. It’s just one of those things you never think twice about.”

After posting about the incident on Facebook, Short has heard of other people who have witnesses similar incidents, including someone who had left a drink bottle in their car which reflected the sun and burnt the seat.

The incident has “triggered a level of anxiety” for Short, who is now concerned about other reflective objects in her home, including a glass table.

She has used the incident as an opportunity to check her smoke alarms are in working order, while Annalina has found a new place to keep her mirror – in her wardrobe.

Fire and Emergency NZ national advisor for fire risk management Peter Gallagher said mirrors, glasses, ornaments and plastic water bottles can reflect and focus the sun’s rays and become a fire danger.

Fires caused by this were rare, however people should consider moving flammable items away or cover any reflective surfaces.
