Air-con Cleaning: Protection against Allergies

|

The only air to breathe is clean air...

It is recommended to regularly clean and maintain your air-con system if you are prone to allergies.


Air-borne spores/mold
Air conditioners can be excellent mold breading grounds. Dust gets deposited on the cooling fins, then becomes damp because air conditioners condense water out of the air. Damp dust is a pretty good medium for growing mold. The mold may not grow all that well when the air conditioner is running and cold, but between cycles, and during longer periods when the air conditioner is not needed, the mold can have a real field day.Cleaning your air conditioner regularly improves your health by removing moldy dust, and improves the efficiency of the air conditioner.


Other allergens
In Japan's hay-fever season (around April/May), the pollen from the cedar trees can make life difficult for asthma and allergy sufferers. Basically, the equation is simple. Air-con units will help to filter the air coming into your home, to remove pollen, dust and other particulates. However, when those filters get full, those allergens will need to go somewhere...into the air! Though cleaning the air-cons will not cure your allergy, it can help make your life a little more comfortable by blowing out cleaner air.


Anti-Allergenic Protection
Furthermore, when cleaning your air-con, there are a variety of products in the market formulated not only to remove the harmful micro-organisms, but also to protect the system from its potential return. Chez Vous utilizes this kind of non-corrosive and environmentally-friendly treatment to protect the inside surfaces of the air-con machines against potential recontamination.

Domestic Helper Service *NEW*

|

An extra pair of hands for all-round help with the housekeeping and child-care!

Chez Vous has recently introduced the much-awaited "Domestic Helper Service", ideal for busy families who require integrated help with housekeeping and child-care. Through this new service, we are no longer restricting our clients to using the Housekeeping and Babysitting Services separately, but instead offer versatile all-round help from a dedicated Filipina Domestic Helper.

This recent introduction underlines Chez Vous' commitment to meeting the domestic needs of busy foreign families living in Tokyo and Yokohama. And with rates starting at JPY 2,600 for up two kids in the day-time, we hope this service meets the family budget too!

In addition, since this service falls under our Babysitting Service range, you may even be able to avail of babysitting discount coupons on the Domestic Helper Service, though various company welfare organisations. Discounts available depend on your company's welfare policy, but they can reach as much as JPY 30,000 per month! Please ask your Chez Vous coordinator or company HR department for more information.

We hope that you can enjoy the comfort and piece of mind of having a Chez Vous domestic helper in your home, helping to make your home life run smoothly.

【2030年】第5部 日本はありますか(1)進むボーダーレス化 その瞳は、国境を超えて

 ■外国人労働者 「開放」か「鎖国」か正念場

東京・西麻布の高級マンションに一家4人で暮らす主婦、小森唯さん(33)=仮名=は5年前から週1回、フィリピン人家政婦(37)を自宅へ迎え入れる。掃除や洗濯、キッチンの洗い物をてきぱきとこなす異国の女性と同じ部屋の中で、1歳2カ月になる次女の世話をする。

「私(わたくし)はフィリピンに行ったことがないのですが、フィリピン人はお掃除がとても上手で家族を大事にすると聞き、お願いしました。実際、お仕事がきっちりしている。ホテルのようにシーツがピシッとなって、日本人家政婦の方とは仕上がりが違う」


派遣元の家事代行会社「シェヴ」(東京都)によると、1回4時間で1万1500円。顧客約600人の6割は港、渋谷両区の日本人富裕層と外資系企業の外国人駐在員らで、年収1500万円から2千万円以上が大半という。

同社は日本人とフィリピン人の家政婦が約100人ずついるが、外資系銀行出身の柳基善社長(51)は「日本人は年配の方が多くお客さまがどうしても気を使うが、フィリピーナだと頼みやすい面もあるようだ。それに、一般に日本人の採用は難しい。家事使用人
や清掃業務だから皆さんあまりやりたがらない」。

2年前から同社の家政婦として働くネニータ・サラガさん(45)はセブ島に近いサマール島
の出身。21歳だった1986(昭和61)年に「歌手」として興行資格で来日した。群馬県館林市のクラブで働いた後、清掃会社員の日本人男性(59)と結婚して2女をもうけ、就労に制限のない永住者資格を得た。
 
ネニータさんに20年後の日本と自身の姿を尋ねると、明るい表情でこう答えた。

「日本は人口が減って高齢化で大変だろうけど、私たちが助けてあげる。だって私のセカンドホーム(第2の故郷)だから。私も頑張って働いて、20年後はお金持ちになって『ネニータ様』と呼ばれていたい。やっぱり楽をしたい。そういう気持ちで頑張っている」
