I recently hired Raquel from Raquel's Home Services, and I am beyond impressed with the results. From start to finish, the experience was seamless and professional. Firstly, scheduling was a breeze. Their team was accommodating and flexible, ensuring that the cleaning appointment fit into my schedule without any hassle. My home was left clean and smelling wonderful with the essential oils she incorporates into her steam cleaning process. She was punctual and came fully prepared with all the necessary equipment and supplies. What stood out to me the most was her attention to detail. Not only was the quality of her work outstanding, but she was courteous and respectful. She was attentive to my specific cleaning preferences and went above and beyond to ensure my satisfaction. Overall, I couldn't be happier with the service provided by Raquel's Home Services. They have truly set the standard for professionalism and excellence in the cleaning industry. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of top-notch cleaning services, and for people sensitive to chemical cleaning agents.

I choose to try Raquel out of all the various cleaners advertising because of "the extra pair of hands" and that's exactly what she's been. My entire home had descended into chaos over a long period and I desperately needed help cleaning and restoring order. I'm reasonably fit & capable, just time poor; Raquel has been wonderful going above and beyond, and getting through the work faster than I could given the same time. This has been the best investment in my wellbeing I could possibly have made.

Now providing Green

& Standard Domestic Cleaning Services

At Raquel's Home Services, we care deeply about the environment and your well-being.

That's why we offer Eco-Friendly Cleaning / Green Cleaning services using natural cleaning agents as an alternative option to our standard domestic cleaning service using regular household cleaning products in the Northern Rivers region that utilise steam mops, steam cleaning tools, and natural products such as essential oils such as eucalyptus, lavender, peppermint, tea tree, clove, patchouli, orange, cedar, sage, lemongrass, and lemon myrtle, as well as white and apple cider vinegar, borax, and bi-carb soda (we don't use bicarb and vinegar mixed together, but sequentially to ensure both agents retain their cleaning properties). Our passion for eco cleaning services and your well-being are at the core of every cleaning service in the Northern Rivers area that we provide.

Our Eco Cleaning services in the Northern Rivers region extend to Lismore, Ballina, Byron Bay, Evans Head, Goonelabah, Lennox Head, Murwillumbah, and surrounding areas, and are priced competitively the same as our regular cleaning services, ensuring you enjoy a pristine environment without stretching your budget and compromising on sustainability, or if you have special needs for chemical free cleaning. Learn more about your options by contacting us today to tailor a cleaning package specific to your needs.

The Unpleasant Reality of Mainstream Cleaning Supplies and Avoiding Harmful Chemicals

Maintaining a clean and inviting home is a universal desire. However, this goal shouldn’t come at the expense of your well-being. Ensuring that the products you use are gentle on both your health and the environment is crucial.

Many commercial cleaning products contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can contaminate indoor air and lead to various health issues, such as skin irritation and allergic reactions. Beyond these immediate effects, exposure to VOCs can also result in headaches, dizziness, and nausea. Thankfully, there’s a safer option available. Opting for green cleaning products allows you to achieve cleanliness without jeopardizing your family’s health.

By choosing eco-friendly alternatives, you can achieve the same level of cleanliness without exposing yourself to harmful chemicals. Simple ingredients like baking soda and vinegar can serve as effective substitutes for commercial cleaners, safeguarding your family’s health while also being budget-friendly.

Regardless of the cleaning products you use, proper ventilation is essential. Opening windows and running a fan for at least 30 minutes post-cleaning can help dissipate harsh odors and circulate fresh air.

If you’d like to learn more about the advantages of Green Cleaning for a healthier household without compromising on cleaning effectiveness, and explore academic studies endorsing the effectiveness of natural cleaning products against typical household bacteria, fungi, and even methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus (a superbug commonly found in hospitals), you can also click here.

“Constant exposure to these chemicals[Regular household cleaning chemicals] can create a build up in our bodies, which can lead to some pretty scary health defects including weakened immunity, hormonal imbalances, reduced fertility and an increased risk of cancer.” – From article “Is Scotchgard Safe?” at https://au.protectmeproducts.co/blogs/learn-more/is-scotchgard-safe

  “Investigations performed by Zouhir et al. demonstrated lemongrass essential oil can eradicate the methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in vitro ().”

  “Remarkably, lemongrass EOs completely inhibited all MRSA[Methicillin Resistant Staphycoccus Aureus] growth on the plate. Lemon myrtle, Mountain savory, Cinnamon bark and Melissa EOs showed a significant inhibition.” ().

   “Topical tea tree oil regimens show similar efficacy to standard treatments for decolonizing the body from methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus” (Kairey et al., 2023).

  “The results demonstrated that eugenol[Clove Essential Oil]  could effectively inhibit the growth of S. aureus and E.coli, and is therefore a potential natural antibacterial agent for controlling foodborne diseases induced by S. aureus and E.” (Jingwen et al., 2023).

“Lemon myrtle oil was shown to possess significant antimicrobial activity against the organisms Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida albicans, methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), Aspergillus niger, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Propionibacterium acnes comparable to its major component-citral.”  (Hayes AJ, Markovic B., 2002).

FAQs for Eco Cleaning Services at Raquel's Home Services

What makes Raquel's Home Services different from other cleaning services?

Our Unique Selling Point lies in our commitment to your health and to the environment. We love hearing raving reviews about how nice and clean we leave homes smelling and feeling without the use of toxic or dangerous chemical cleaning agents, for our clients who elect to use our eco friendly green cleaning services with natural cleaning agents as opposed to our standard domestic cleaning service we offer in which we use standard houshold chemical cleaning products. By choosing an eco-cleaning service with Raquel's Home Services you are ensuring a healthy living space for your family, children, pets, visitors, as well as a safer world for future generations.

Are your cleaning products safe for my family and pets?

Absolutely! Our eco-friendly cleaning products are safe for all members of your household, including furry friends, as well as being bio-degradable. If you are really concerned about the well-being of your pets, you can opt for an extra pet friendly green cleaning agents including sage, lavendar, cedar and lemongrass oils, or a combination of those, instead of other green cleaning agents such as eucalyptus, tea tree, clove, lemon myrtle, lemon, orange, peppermint, and patchouli oils. We dilute all of our essential oils to a sufficient degree to ensure they do not pose a danger to cats and dogs in our eco-cleaning domestic cleaning services, however if you have concerns about safety for pets, simply specify that you wish for an extra pet friendly green clean with your domestic cleaning service before your appointment to your appointment setter. Dogs are particularly sensitive to tea-tree, eucalyptus, citrus, cinnamon lemon myrtle, and clove oils we sometimes use in eco-cleaning services, whilst cats are particularly sensitive tea tree, peppermint, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and patchouli oils, but our furry friends can handle other oils such as lemongrass, lavendar, cedar, and sage oil which are considered safe to use around household pets.

How does eco-cleaning benefit me?

Eco-cleaning not only minimises harmful chemicals in your living space but also improves indoor air quality. This means a healthier living environment, reduced allergies, and peace of mind knowing you"re making a green choice.
