Who NEEDS professional cleaning services anyway?

Picture this… It’s Monday morning, a new week and you are rearing to GO! You can feel it in your bones, this week is just going to BE a success!

Cue in your actual Monday…

  1. Friday’s coffee cup just can’t wait to say hello with its signature dark ring around the inside – you know, because your coffee – black brewed, dark roast medium ground Arabica beans, medium strong, no sugar, no milk!
  2. Your waste paper bin – filled and toppled over; close by is the shredder looking like it had a weekend confetti party
  3. Someone opened a new ream of photocopy paper and left the wrapping on the floor
  4. The washrooms? Let’s not paint that picture because the stench alone is enough to make your stomach turn… Not to mention your lovely receptionist already buzzed to let you know your clients are already in the building.

A clean, tidy and well-kept office does more good to your organization than you care to admit and you know you are tired of having to manage these kinds of services.

This is not your core business. This is NOT what you signed up for. Your core work is suffering at the expense of having to manage the non-core BUT very essential services.


If this is you, this blog is dedicated wholeheartedly to you and the rest of the people who think they are saving a shilling or two by managing these services in-house.

Most organizations shy away from investing in professional cleaning services based on the cost not considering the indirect return on investment that we shall proceed to discuss.

  1. Brand Image.

Often and we pray that this is every day, your office will have clients dropping by, friends of employees (hopefully not as we need those billable hours covered with actual work) and/or other new faces.

These people will come and probably stay a few minutes and within those few minutes they will already have formed an opinion about your organization based on their first impressions of the immediate surroundings.

For example if the trash bins are overflowing with paper or the window blinds/curtains are not drawn it will indicate a sense of negligence or laziness. These impressions are then passed to others who may want to do business with your brand. Sometimes this may be assumed as an oversight the long term effects far outweigh you simply dialing up the people who were born to do this, born to make sure your work spaces are spotlessly clean before you set foot into your office and clean up long after you leave – leaving you a fresh slate to work in tomorrow.

Just like Santa’s elves, we work quietly and meticulously paying attention to detail to those less than glorious tasks that ensure your productivity is at its peak, restoring your crowning glory!

The next time you think twice about not hiring us, think of that overpowering washroom that will cost you a potential client

  1. Staff motivation.

Imagine walking to the office and your keypad is dusty, no toilet paper in the washroom, overflowing trash bin… just what does that do in spurring your to be your best that day?

A clean office goes a long way in motivating employees creatively and ultimately translating to the company’s bottom-line.

It ensures the staff are not distracted and remain focused on their day’s tasks. In order to ensure that your staff productivity levels are at their optimum, take this little headache out of their way please?

  1. Health hazards.

You more likely to catch a flu or bacterial infection from work than your home. Why? Aside from the fact that we spend most of our waking moments on the job or in traffic, your office is a public space and it is never guaranteed that your colleagues will all observe high levels of hygiene. Physical contact with things in the office touched by everyone for example door knobs or biometric machines may cause the transmission or development of health complication.

Next time you look at your extension receiver, ask yourself, who has been on this? Has it been sanitized? Door knobs?  Is our working environment clean and rid of elements that would catapult infection?

  1. Saves you time and money.

I don’t know about you but the fact that I can have someone else do the work that’s not on my JD and have me concentrate on my organizations bottom-line just cleaning work gives you and your staff peace of mind. Not to mention the HR payroll nightmare at the end of the month in determining who is on contract and who isn’t; who’s not well and cannot come in today tantamount to having a whole floor not cleaned; terminal dues, leave allowances, name it!

Knowing that you are creating a safe, organized and welcoming working environment means that everyone can get on with their tasks without the burden of having to ensure the office is kept clean. Doing this also reduces potential stress in having to assign cleaning tasks to employees or tension between employees who may deem others as not ‘pulling their weight’ when it comes to keeping the office tidy.

We come in to take care of the essential but non-core activities so you can give your business 100% productivity.

  1. Guaranteed expert service.

Hiring a reputable professional office cleaning services means you can expect the highest standards of cleaning. Cleaning staff who are given expert training and have proper experience will know how to make sure your office is not just surface cleaned but cleaned deeply and thoroughly whilst maintaining your assets by using the best environmentally friendly detergents and innovative tools not to mentioned an empowered workforce!


Still NOT convinced you tough cookie? Call us up, and we’ll have a free, non-committal, chat on how we can significantly improve your output by having us do the dirty work for you! Coffee’s on you first time around though.

WCW – Isis Nyongo-Madison

We live in a country full of amazing people who have made concerted efforts towards empowering fellow Kenyans. This week, we feature Isis Nyong’o-Madison, who is the Co-founder of Mums Village, an online community that provides resources, support and expert advice for pregnant women and parents in Kenya.

You may know her as a media and technology entrepreneur extraordinaire.

Currently the Principal at strategic advisory firm Asphalt & Ink and Senior Advisor at Albright Stonebridge Group, she has previously worked with InMobi, Google and MTV in Africa.

Isis has been named as one of the top 40 women under 40 in Kenya for several years as well as shortlisted on the Forbes Top 20 Youngest Power Women in Africa, on IT News Africa’s Top 10 Women in ICT and Africa’s most powerful women in tech 2013, selected as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum in 2012.

But today, Today – we focus on her work with Mum’s Village.

The work done by Mums Village is one that we admire and support. Get to know a little bit more about the co-founder in this week’s #WCW feature.

1. Isis – beautiful name by the way? Any nicknames? Eye-so? Eye-sie? Izzay? lol… indulge us *chuckles* No unfortunately or fortunately (going by your suggestions) I don’t have any.

2. You run a very important cause, tell us what inspired you to start this cause? I created Mums Village based on the need that many women – in Kenya and on global online platforms need support from other women who’ve gone before them on matters family, health and societal standards amongst other topical issues rarely discussed. Mums Village then is the platform through which we can reach out to women via Facebook and other digital channels where they have access to local content and experts who can provide information, support and much needed humor.

3. How long have you been running Mums Village? I have been running Mums Village since 2015 – 2 years and still going strong!

4. It seems like we DO have something in common – Cleaning. Through our cleaning services, we are able to provide peace of mind to Mums and households and you help clear the minds of the many women who benefit from Mums Village, through the guidance and counselling services that you offer. How does this experience satisfy you? Oh wow! I never thought about it that way! A nice perspective, although I wouldn’t say I clear their minds, rather I provide information to help them make informed decisions. From that perspective, I am fulfilled when I see mums make informed choices based on their interactions with Mums Village. For example, a mum recently approached me on the street to tell me how helpful our Mums Village Show on education was for her, because it helped her figure out how to pick a kindergarten and exposed her to an innovative new school that just opened in
her area. This is the kind of positive outcomes my team and I live for!

5. What motivates you? I am generally a motivated person. I like to put my time into something meaningful that has great impact in my life and the life of others and when the results are positive, it spurs me all the more.

6. Do you enjoy reading books? If yes, which books are you reading now and would you like to share what they are about?
*Chuckles* Isis is THE ultimate Bookworm!! I kid you not! I can read 10 books at a go, dip my legs in a cold basin of water and read 10 more…lol!

If I had to pick one I feel is relevant to our conversation right now, it would be ‘What Works’ by Iris Bohnet. Not because we share a first name, it helps but not in the list of reasons. The book talks about issues that arise in the workplace due to various biases, mostly affecting women. I strongly recommend it to every person in management. Bohnet gives practical examples of pitfalls to avoid when recruiting, experiments to apply in any workplace from hiring decisions through senior leadership.

7. What does a bookworm I beg your pardon, what does Isis do for fun? C’mon now, we ARE just as much fun as a non-book lover- only As much as I am book reader, I also like to be out with nature..#LovingWhereYouLive aye?…*wink* and swimming.

8. What career path did you want to take as a child and why did that change?
Growing up, I wanted to be a doctor. After meeting young Africans in business years later, I was greatly inspired by the possibility of building businesses IN Africa. I think it’s important to inspire children to dream and follow their passion and more importantly, guide the children on flexibility and having an open mind when choosing a career.Many job functions are quickly evolving in today’s world, and 75% of the jobs functions available today might not exist in the next couple of years.

9. Do you have a favourite radio station that you listen to? Ummmm! Do you really want to know what I listen to? I love listening to podcasts. I listen to podcasts that discuss a wide range of subjects. I look forward to the day when we have more podcasts produced in Kenya by Kenyans or by Africa on different topics such as education, passion for life and others.

10. Why Podcasts? Sounds like a very English/Western thing to do? Far from it, Podcasts are a great non-intrusive way to enrich one’s knowledge and understanding of a topic while driving, javing or even at the gym

11. Music? What genres? What sounds get you in the right mood? Any favorite artists? I would say I like to a lot of different kinds of music but lately I have been missing Whitney Houston so I am listening to her old songs a lot!

12. What would you say if your partner suggested that you share phone passwords? That’s a very funny question and I think most partners ask each other’s passwords – don’t they? No they don’t Ms. Isis, they crack em’ ok, okaaaay, I plead the fifth.

Thank you very much Isis for your time, we appreciate you taking the time out ma’am!

Well folks that’s it for now. Let’s meet again in the next ‘Get to know me’ Edition.

Message from Parapet CEO: I am proudly Kenyan

On Tuesday the 8th of August, 2017, I exercised the privilege I have as a Kenyan to vote and I am glad I did! In casting my vote, I had the chance to voice my opinion in what I deem to be a critical time for our future generations and more importantly I did this peacefully and in one accord with my fellow brother and sister.

As the CEO of an organization that employs over 4500 staff drawn from almost 43 tribes of this country, I can only stand proud and thank God for the far we have come as a nation. My staff, all very unique and specially placed, represent various ethnicities that each bring an essential component to the success of our organization – Parapet; without whom, we would not be where we are today almost 20 years later.

The General Election on Tuesday went without incident and as we peacefully await the results, I want to urge my fellow Kenyans to believe in our own power and take the lead in building peace in our communities. Kenya is a Country whose richness comes from the diversity of its cultures which bind us in spite of our tribal inhibitions.

Our differences in opinion are what bring out our special blend of diversity building a strong democracy and ultimately, achieve strong economic growth for our future generations.

I am proud to be Kenyan, proud to lead a vibrant, multi-ethnic, amazing team and I am confident that whatever the outcome of the Election, we will remain a peaceful, conscientious people.

”Natukae na Undugu
    Amani na Uhuru,
    Raha tupate na ustawi!”
Alex Nyaga – Group CEO Parapet

Exercise your civil right with caution

Every five years, Kenya as a sovereign state, gets gripped by election fever from various political aspirants running for office and their supporters garnering support for them. Somehow, everyone seems to lose all sense of direction, caution and decorum. This year, things do not seem to be any different either. Even for the most level-headed individuals, it can be hard not to notice and sucked into the political chatter.

This year in Kenya, Tuesday 8th August, 2017 has been gazetted as a public holiday and all eligible voters are urged to go out and exercise their civil right and duty by voting for their preferred candidates.

At Parapet, we are optimistic that these elections will come and go without furore; and that there would be minimal if any, interruptions to business operations and livelihood for the citizens of this great nation.

Having said that, we want to share with you some guidelines on how to conduct yourself during this time;

  • Be mindful of the political conversations you engage in, even online. You might be misquoted and land in unnecessary trouble;
  • To know what queue to be on, please use to save on time – knowledge IS power;
  • On election day, follow the provided guidelines, vote with order and leave the polling station soon after;
  • Since we know that one’s preferred candidate is a personal right hence there no harm in keeping that information to yourself;
  • Limit movement. Especially, do not plan for travels around this time, for you own safety;
  • Stock up on food and other supplies in advance to ensure you’re not out and about trying to shop when suppliers have closed;
  • Respect other people and their choices, do not get into arguments over differing political stances;
  • Report any suspicious activities to the nearest authorities immediately.
    • In the event of emergencies, the government has provided various hotlines such as;

      • National police service: 112/ 999/ 911
      • National Disaster Operations Center: + 254 20 222 4324 or + 254 20 222 7980

      With this in mind, we wish you all peace, health and safety during this period.

The Final Cog

Planning events is an exciting yet stressful affair. The planners and managers just want to get everything right. From the budgets to the date and time, to the guests, the theme, décor, all the details. When the event day arrives, it’s exciting to have everything fall into place, with a smoothly flowing program to boot. Every event planner knows the headiness of compliments for a job well done. The cheques thereafter make the deal even sweeter.

There is a flip side to it though. After all the good work, the celebrations and glamour, there is almost always no one to clean up after everybody goes home. Most event venues are left looking like a hot mess, with trash strewn all over the place and items in disarray. This is the Achilles heel of most event planners. They usually put everything in place and miss out on the final cog in the events wheel; events cleaning services.

Truth be told, whether celebrations are held indoors or outdoors, no matter the number of guests, nobody likes to stay back and clean up. People love to enjoy themselves and move on to the next function, no hard feelings.

This is why it is important for all event planners to include a clean-up plan during event planning. The aim is to use a clean venue and leave it as clean or even cleaner than it was before. Having an idea of who will take care of event cleaning duties makes all the difference in terms of quality of work for the event planners.

The cleaning company chosen for doing the events cleaning should ideally be able to;-

  • Clean the full site before the event
  • Do cleaning touch-ups during the event
  • Provide washroom and sanitary solutions
  • Provide garbage and waste management
  • Provide help/stewardship to the guests as needed
  • Clean the full site after the event

Having a plan or supplier for events cleaning gives any function a feeling of completeness and makes everything seem tight with no loose ends. Interestingly, event planners who are known for leaving the venues clean and tidy tend to find it easy to book venues and even get discounts from the proprietors as their reputations precede them.

Of course, while choosing the events cleaning supplier, it is important to consider their capacity, track record and cost. One of our bragging points as Parapet is that we’ve managed to hit that sweet spot that combines the three features for our clients. We have an amazing track record of cleaning events, with our most recently satisfied client being the IAAF Championships held at the Kasarani Stadium in July 2017.

We were in charge of cleaning the VIP areas, the media center, the bathrooms and toilets, the red carpet and track as well as the walkways, especially the ones with wooden floors. We were also in charge of cleaning the Athlete’s Village, the Athletes’ hostel that had a capacity of 2000 people, the dining areas as well as the outdoor areas in Kenyatta University where the athletes were lodging. We had an army of 500 cleaners on site and this capacity made it easy for us to divide roles and have everything running like clockwork to ensure high levels of hygiene and sanitation before, during and after the week-long event. For a 5-day event, we ensured that we set up three days before and tore down during the three days after, in order to ensure that we left the venues clean and tidy, even better than before we came in.

This definitely added value for us as the events cleaning supplier and the event planner, IAAF.

The small cogs in the wheel make all the difference for any machine to run smoothly and events cleaning is one such cog in planning for a successful event. Check out our services and give us a call. We will be sure to make your event sparkle as well as possibly make you the preferred event planner in your domain!

Tackling the Cholera Menace in Nairobi

Since May this year there has been a few reports of cholera outbreaks in Nairobi, some of which have been deemed fatal and this has forced the Nairobi county government to issue an alert on the cholera outbreak.

Given that we are a cleaning company, we feel the obligation to participate in the conversation that will help our readers to identify, prevent and even control spread of the disease. We hope you can follow and share the tidbits so you and your loved ones can be safe.

Various medical professionals advise that the disease is most common in places with poor sanitation, crowding, war and famine. It has also been established that knowing various facts about cholera can help protect you and your family from infection and / or spreading the infection.

Cholera Causes

Vibrio cholerae, the bacterium that causes cholera, is usually found in food or water that is contaminated. Common sources of the bacterium include:

  • Public water supplies;
  • Ice made from untreated water;
  • Foods and drinks sold by unsanitary vendors;
  • Food and drinks handled/prepared with unsanitary water;
  • Vegetables grown with water containing human waste. infected by the bacteria
  • Raw or undercooked fish and seafood caught in waters polluted with sewage

When a person consumes the contaminated food or water, they could be exposed to the disease bearing bacteria, which could lead to symptoms of cholera such as diarrhoea.

Although it is not likely that you would catch cholera just from casual contact with an infected person, thus it is recommended that you remember to always wash your hands after shaking hands with different people.

Cholera Symptoms

Symptoms of cholera can begin as soon as a few hours after infection. Should you experience one or more of the following symptoms, seek immediate medical attention from an approved medical practitioner.

  • Nausea and vomiting;
  • Dehydration;
  • Rapid weight loss;
  • Low blood pressure;
  • Sunken eyes;
  • Physical weakness;
  • Stomach cramps and aches;
  • Rapid heart rate

Please bear in mind that, if medical care is not sought with urgency, the dehydration caused by cholera can lead to shock and death in a matter of hours.

Preventive Measures
  • Pay attention to personal hygiene; wash hands thoroughly with soap as often as you can remember, throughout the day, before preparing food, before eating and after using the toilet;
  • Do not buy food from unlicensed and unsanitary food vendors ;
  • Pay attention to the conditions of shops and handling of the food/drink;
  • Keep raw/uncooked food separately.;
  • Use separate utensils for handling/storing cooked and uncooked foods to avoid cross-contamination;
  • Boil drinking water;
  • Keep a clean kitchen;
  • All refuse should be in a covered bin and soon after taken away. This is where we come in with proper garbage and waste management services.

Be sure to use bottled, boiled, or treated water for the following purposes:

  • Drinking;
  • Preparing food or drinks;
  • Making ice;
  • Brushing your teeth
  • Washing your face and hands;
  • Washing dishes and utensils that you use to eat or prepare food;
  • Washing fruits and vegetables.

As Parapet, even as we offer office cleaning services, we shall endeavor to ensure the highest standards of hygiene for you and your team members to prevent contamination and even further spread of the disease.

In the meantime, please see your nearest health care provider for more information or should you suspect you have symptoms of cholera.

The art of clean

People generally gravitate towards clean places.
For most people, they are attractive, inviting and calming, especially when they are bright and well-arranged, devoid of clutter that could cause trip-ups and accidents.
In some extreme cases however, they are even a turn off, seeming too sterile and almost uninhabitable.
Clean spaces are the utopia for every home, office, commercial building, factory, grounds and event venues. Walking into a building whose façade is spotless makes for excitement when it comes to conducting business.
Clean and tidy homes, with every last dish washed, dried and organized neatly. Well-arranged bedrooms, studies and garages make for peaceful and calm homes sincerely.
Neat offices make for a good presentation and outlook for the people working in them. Less time is spent looking for items and there is a general sense of order and efficiency.
Well-maintained grounds and gardens make for serene escape zones where one can blow off steam, meditate and re-energize.
Interestingly, much as well all love to be in these beautiful settings, but there’s hardly a soul that wants to be tasked with ensuring the status quo is upheld. Why? Cleaning is a horrible, boring, thankless and almost endless task. Even worse than cleaning is the stress that comes with knowing your home or office is filthy.
Even small children hardly love to do chores. Older children receive cleaning tasks as part of punishment. The graph goes on as we grow older and suddenly, no one wants to do anything to do with cleaning at all!
How then is it that we enjoy sanitary environments and yet are appalled by the thought of cleaning? What can be done to encourage more and more people to actually like and look forward to cleaning?

No More Hate For Cleaning

If you find yourself in the category of people who hate cleaning, here’s some good news, spending time cleaning can help to blow off steam and calm your nerves, even curing depression.
Also, you’ll be on top of your inventory, knowing what you do and do not need and be able to manage your expenses in the long run.
You’ll easily be able to trace your receipts and other items that seem to get lost soon as they land on your desk or in your home. Cleaning comes with order.
Maintaining cleanliness comes with the benefit of knowing and being in charge of your spaces.

Let’s Do This

  1.  Be Minimalist.
    Having lots of stuff is exciting but keeping all these things clean and tidy is not. Only have in your home, office or gardens buy clonazepam canada what you really need. It’s good for visual effect and great for the energy expended in maintenance. One word, DECLUTTER! Throw out anything, either at the office or at home that you have no use for. If it can be used by another, give it away.
  2. Clean Up After Yourself
    A little cleaning and tidying a day goes a long way. Ensure that each day you set aside time to clear your desk at the office. File away papers and documents once you finish using them.
    Put away clothes and shoes, wash your cup and plate, wipe tables after eating, pick up bits and pieces from the couch or carpet, water your plants, etc.
    Soon you’ll find that your spaces and clean and tidy without you having used lots of time and/or energy.
  3. Have A Routine.
    Routines and schedules are fantastic for reducing frustrations at any task. Know what you like to do in the morning, during the day and the last thing before clocking out. This will help you even to know what cleaning methods work fastest and most effectively for you.
    Remember, it’s not home spring cleaning, (that’s our work) – , it’s a daily habit that you’re forming so ensure you time yourself not to exceed a certain amount of time.
  4.  Make It Fun
    Cleaning is not always a walk in the park so it helps to lighten the load by inserting some fun into it. Have a favorite playlist to help you through the hour or so that you will spend on cleaning. Use the time to call a friend you haven’t talked to in a long time, put them loud speaker and clean as you catch up with them.
    You could also call your business colleague to brainstorm about a thing or two.
  5.  The Big Stuff
    Cleaning has some heavy hauling involved and this is where you call in the muscle.
    General cleaning and home spring cleaning should be scheduled regularly.
    Do the same for your fumigation and pest control needs.
    After your events, ensure there is clean-up.
    Call in a third party or a cleaning company to this for you. Leave the heavy hauling to them.
    Your gardens and grounds should be tended to regularly as well, not forgetting the swimming pool.
    Have your building’s façade cleaned and maintained to keep up the standards.
    Your drainages, garbage disposal and overall workplace sanitation can also tend to be a messy deal. Be open to hiring the best help in the market and only insist on a Parapet Cleaning!
