Mrs Mopp Shrewsbury became a stand-alone branch of Mrs Mopp in 2017 due to continued demand for reliable domestic cleaners in Shrewsbury

Mrs Mopp has worked within Shrewsbury for over 10 years, but as our client list grew it was important for Shrewsbury to have a dedicated team of local Moppettes and a dedicated account manager

Meet the Mrs Mopp Shrewsbury team

First up, meet team leader Zara – Zara has been with Mrs Mopp for over five years and started on our Shrewsbury team as a domestic Moppette.

Zara has worked hard and been a consistent member of the Mrs Mopp team since day one. Did you know, one time Zara’s car broke down and needed to be repaired so, not one to let her clients down, Zara got on her pushbike and cycled to all of her clients for a WHOLE WEEK and didn’t miss a single cleaning service!

Zara, who still cover-cleans when needed, completes all quotes in Shrewsbury and manages her team of Merry Moppettes – book a home visit with Zara

Zara is a mummy to two lovely girls (often seen out posting Mrs Mopp leaflets with their mama around Shrewsbury in their own mini-mopps uniform) give them a wave if you see them around

The Poison In Polish

The Poison In Polish

Cleaning Articles & Guides Mrs Mopp Blog Spot

Do you know what you breathing in and absorbing into your body when you use furniture polish?

At Mrs Mopp, we are always working on improving our cleaning techniques and we continually test products to ensure we provide the best clean and service for all of our clients

In some of the homes we clean, we have clients that live with asthma, COPD and many other breathing conditions, and in those homes, we only damp dust, after much research on the best cleaning methods for those with lung conditions

Damp dusting does not use conventional furniture polish, instead it uses a damp soft microfibre cloth and a dry soft microfibre cloth to clean in a Mr Myagi “wax on, wax off” style – if the wood is sealed we may use safe-for-wood anti-bacterial treatments and we are currently trialing an environmentally friendly vinegar, water and jojoba oil mix (jojoba works as a natural wood oil) as we aim to cut down on the cleaning chemicals we use for both the health of our Moppettes and the health of our planet

Damp dusting provides a better clean and shine to your furniture, your picture frames, your ornaments, and your handles and switches etc. (Mrs Mopp first tests all products and cleaning techniques in our founders home before we ever put them into our clients homes, and Kelly is converted, the only type of dusting and polishing that is done in her home now is damp dusting). For longer lasting wood treatments, depending on the wood, we regularly beeswax or oil clients wood and damp dust in between bi-annual wood treatments.

See this short clip from one of our Moppette training videos showing the correct technique and also showing the shine achieved from damp dusting

Damp dusting Mrs Mopp Style

The nasty truth about furniture polish

Did you know one of the hydrocarbons in furniture polish is formaldehyde, which is a known carcinogen that can accumulate in human fat tissue over time?! It also contains nitrobenzene – which is easily absorbed through the skin and is another known carcinogen that is a reproductive and central nervous system toxin. Many brands contain petroleum distillates which have been linked to skin and lung cancers and can cause nerve damage, are highly flammable and dangerous if swallowed! Yikes!

This is in addition to morpholine (irritant which can cause kidney damage), neurotoxins and a host of other ingredients that can cause skin irritation, eye irritation, headaches, and coughing.

Limited exposure (once weekly) is classed as ‘safe’ but our Moppettes clean between 2-4 homes a day, 5 days a week… and that’s an awful lot of exposure

Even Chrissy is rethinking her furniture polish use

But I’ve always used furniture polish…

Furniture polish can damage your wooden furniture too as the silicones they contain can soak into the grain and damage the texture and look of the piece permanently. Some brands can leave a residue on furniture too, dulling the shine over time

A future without furniture polish?

There are many ways to clean furniture and at Mrs Mopp we always clean an item in accordance with the information acquired when we visit clients homes for a quotation and with the suppliers/manufacturers instructions for wooden items but for everything else, we damp dust – damp dusting stops the dust from circulating in the air (and ultimately landing back on the furniture) and brings items in a home to a bacteria-free high shine, with no inhaling and absorbing of nasties from a polish spray
