  1. Freshen the air

Air fresheners help to get rid of bad odour, there are several sources of odour in the house, and areas, where water are mostly used, are more common with odour; e.g laundry area, kitchen, toilet and bathroom. The wardrobes too need an air freshener

You can have your air fresheners placed at strategic areas of the house so that the smell of freshness can be felt everywhere in the house.

  1. Fumigation

Fumigation help in pest control, they get rid of crawling insect and flies in the house. It can be tiring to beat yourself while trying to kill a mosquito. Fumigation of your compound particularly the hotspots for mosquitos and flies can save you a time with the doctor.

The dusting spray help to reduce the effect of dust on glass and leather. Wood polish is effective in bringing out the true beauty of the wooden furniture. It also helps to remove leftover adhesive from stickers with you having to scratch the wood surface.

However, when choosing a wood polish, get one that is environment friendly.
