What Type of Business can Give You More Time and Financial Freedom?

When you’ve been slaving away in the corporate world for years, you may have deprived yourself of freedom. Spending more than eight hours a day in a cubicle means eight hours spent away from family or eight hours spent away from doing what you’ve always wanted to do like playing golf or traveling the world perhaps.

But even though you are aware of this you know that being in that cubicle is the most rational thing to do. And besides, society expects adults to work so they can fend for themselves and for their respective families. But do you know that there is another way, a way that allows you to enjoy more time for yourself so you can travel across continents and experience new cultures?  And no we’re not talking about applying as flight crew. We’re talking about being able to do what you love while being financially independent through business.

The business world has evolved and the birth of franchising and licensing has given millions of people an option to leave their cubicles and be their own bosses. The amazing thing about operating as a licensee is that you can run your own business and earn money while at the same time having enough time for yourself.

You can rest easy knowing that your business structure has already been studied and tested and your licensor has already established systems and processes so you can run your business efficiently. All that is left for you to do is to focus on running an income-generating business, the rest has been done for you.

You don’t have to worry about who will train you and your employees or worry about how you’ll produce manuals and marketing materials because all these have already been taken care of by your licensor.

HydroKleen is a great business opportunity if you are considering operating as a licensee. HydroKleen is an air conditioning cleaning company based in Australia. Our licensees are growing by the minute and are sprouting like mushrooms all over the globe. We started franchising in Australia in July 2010 and ever since then we’ve introduced HydroKleen to over 13 countries and branded itself into over 40 countries throughout the world in just a short span of time.

How Many Air Conditioners Will there be in 2030?

The world is getting hotter and hotter and with today’s hot climate it’s easy to understand why people are no longer hesitant to purchase air conditioners. The demand for air conditioners isn’t stopping any time soon in fact more and more people are willing to shell out cash just to live comfortably. Add to that our growing economy, people can now afford to buy air conditioning units to keep themselves cool and comfortable during the hot seasons.

It is estimated that by year 2030 over 700 million air conditioning units are going to be installed and by year 2050 around 1.6 billion. That number is indeed something to think about especially if you are in the air conditioning industry. As the number of air conditioners continue to increase year after year and possibly exploding by year 2050, the demand for your business without doubt is going to go through the roof.

This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who wishes to venture into a new business and with these figures, there really is little need for a feasibility study because obviously people will want to have their air conditioners cleaned and sanitised otherwise their bills are going to soar. And since we know that dirty air conditioners can affect the thermostat, we can already predict that when their ACs are no longer emitting cool air due to dirty machines it will drive homeowners to seek your services at some point. Isn’t that something worth looking forward to?

And with the help of social media, maximise our reach and educate more and more people about the need to have their air conditioners inspected, cleaned and sanitised.

If you are currently looking for a business that has the potential to make it big we urge you to learn more about HydroKleen. HydroKleen is a wonderful opportunity for business-minded individuals who are willing to do what it takes to achieve success.

HydroKleen’s Core Values – The Secret To Their Success

The success of a business lies on how they uphold their core values.

Building a strong culture in your business is something that you need to strive for every day and you can do that by upholding your company’s core values. A business without core values is no business at all. You’ll have no culture, no uniformity and no unity among those who work for you and work with you and that can be a real struggle especially during trying times.

In order to protect your business you have to establish core values. These core values have the power to give your business tremendous benefits such as gaining invaluable wisdom to place and assign the appropriate people across different sectors of your business, coming up with a simplified and doable corporate process and more importantly having core values allow your business to attract the right people to your organisation giving them every opportunity to thrive. When your organisation is founded by the company’s core values then success is really just around the corner.

The success of HydroKleen is no secret. Like any other business we started with a brand that is not renowned, a brand that was only known to us. We started from scratch but somehow through work and dedication we made it through and we consider ourselves successful by the standards we set.

Not all companies catapult to success but we pride ourselves in the success we’ve achieved so far in our journey and we owe it all to HydroKleen’s core values. Struggles are normal but when you have core values to go back to, it will give you the drive, the motivation and the inspiration to press on and do what you are supposed to do.

So when you are having doubts with your business, go back to your core values and remember them by heart. At HydroKleen, we treat each member of our organisation as family, we respect each other’s opinions and we care for each other and by working together we are better able to achieve our goals.

Get the Life-Work Balance You Have Always Wanted Through Licensing

There is a way to juggle life and work and it’s not that hard!

One of the hardest challenges you’ll face as an entrepreneur is juggling life and work. It is seems as though the harder your work to earn money, the less time you’ll have to enjoy it. It is not unusual for you to hear business owners complain about not having enough time for themselves or for their families because they are too busy and too engrossed with their goal to succeed.

Remember the famous saying, “Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life?” Well, entrepreneurs already know this but they can’t help themselves because they have bills to pay and mouths to feed. Between family and work, the former always gets compromised because we know that our family will always understand. This explains why people choose work over family at times because of every day demands.

The business industry has become more and more creative and over time business owners have found ways to make their lives easier so they can have enough time for work while making time for themselves and for their families. HydroKleen is the kind of business that can offer you both. A business that allows you to have time for your family and time for yourself and your hobbies while you are making money.

HydroKleen, with its systems and processes, is an excellent business opportunity for you if you are considering a new business venture. HydroKleen is an air conditioning cleaning company based in Australia. Our licensees are growing by the minute and are sprouting like mushrooms all over the globe. We started franchising in July 2010 and since then we’ve introduced HydroKleen to over 13 countries and branded itself into over 40 countries all throughout the world in just a short span of time.

If you are ready to gain control over your life and your work, we suggest you give HydroKleen some thought.

Smart Tenant

A property manager refused to pay for cleaning of their tenant’s air conditioners by HydroKleen Australia, so the tenant went ahead and paid for it themselves. Take a look at these before and after photos. What do you think? Should tenants band together and pressure property managers to take better care of the health of their tenants? Is your property manager aware of the health risks that could be living inside your aircon?

Reduce Seasonal Asthma and Allergy Triggers

Asthma Triggers

With warmer weather just around the corner, now’s the time to think about spring cleaning. If you are one of the two million Australians with asthma, this is an especially important time of the year.

Over the winter months dust, dirt and allergens such as mould can build up in your home, triggering allergy symptoms and asthma in susceptible people.

Adam Trumble, Partnerships Manager at the National Asthma Council, says that an effective way to manage this is by spring cleaning, which will reduce triggers in the home.

“People with asthma can benefit from a spring clean more than most. A thorough once-over of your home helps control both indoor and seasonal allergens,” says Adam.

With more than eight in 10 people suffering from asthma also being affected by allergies, a clean and healthy environment is an important part of reducing asthma and allergy triggers.

“You won’t completely eliminate allergens, but there are many ways to reduce exposure for you and your family.”

Adam said that those with asthma and allergies also needed to consider their cleaning products, technique and ventilation to ensure that any spring cleaning doesn’t contribute to their asthma and allergy symptoms.

“You don’t want to just move dust around and send allergens and irritating cleaning chemicals into the air – this could have an adverse effect.

“There are many ways to help eliminate allergens in the home this spring. Use a damp cloth to dust hard surfaces; change or clean filters in vacuums, air-conditioners and air purifiers; vacuum drapes and upholstery; and importantly, remove mould.”

Here are Adam’s top tips for spring cleaning to help keep your allergies and asthma under control:

Get rid of old clutter. Clearing out your old belongings reduces dust significantly. Store everything in closets and drawers to minimise dust collection.

Dust forgotten surfaces. Over the winter months, dust will have collected on windows, blinds, curtain rails and skirting boards. Use a damp cloth to clean these areas and then rinse it out well. Don’t fluff the dust up into the air by using a feather duster though; this just distributes dust around the home.

Vacuum thoroughly. If possible, ask someone else to do the vacuuming, as this increases allergens in the air for up to 20 minutes. Use a quality vacuum cleaner that removes particulate matter (these often have HEPA filters).

Remove dust mites from bedding. Ensure that bedding, sheets, pillow-cases and quilts are washed (at greater than 55°C) at least once every two weeks. Encasing the mattress and pillows in protectors will stop the transfer of dust mites.

Clean drapes and upholstery. Because allergens cling to soft surfaces, it’s essential to wash, dry-clean or vacuum drapes, as well as vacuum sofas and chairs to remove lingering allergens, and wash or dry-clean throw rugs. Vertical blinds or roller shades are less likely to accumulate dust than drapes.

Change or clean old filters in air-conditioners, vacuums and air purifiers. Keep the air coming into your house clean and fresh.

Clean up after pets. If you have a pet who has spent a long winter indoors, vacuum your pet’s sleeping quarters well. Wash the pet’s bedding frequently.

Remove mould. Mould is a significant and sometimes overlooked trigger of asthma. After removing mould, take steps to prevent it coming back such as sealing bathroom leaks and treating rising damp as soon as it’s detected.

Allergen avoidance doesn’t cure asthma, but by reducing your exposure to allergen triggers you may improve your asthma control and help make symptoms easier to manage.

For more information on asthma and allergy sensitive products, and tips on removing allergens around the home, visit the National Asthma Council Australia’s Sensitive Choice website: sensitivechoice.com.au.

The Sensitive Choice program helps educate Australians about managing their asthma and allergy triggers and also encourages companies to recognise the health concerns of people with asthma or allergies. Some manufacturers have even been inspired to develop specific new products, such as carpets, for this community.

Spring Pollen Alert

2015_8_25_HK_BlogBanner_1

Forecast high pollen levels in the air this spring in some states could leave up to seven million Australians who suffer from allergy (including hay fever (allergic rhinitis) and conjunctivitis) struggling with sneezing, watery eyes, a running nose and an itchy throat.

With the first week of spring marking National Asthma Week (September 1 – 7), the National Asthma Council Australia says that the Week is a timely reminder for people with asthma or allergies to take extra care.

Pollens from grasses, weeds or trees can trigger allergies like asthma and hay fever, causing a variety of symptoms to flare up.

According to the Bureau of Meteorology, this past autumn was wetter than normal and this winter has seen drier-than-average conditions. That makes the coming pollen season a mixed bag across Australia.  An El Nino forecast for 2015-2016 could shorten the pollen season in some parts of Australia but elsewhere allergy sufferers may be in for a tough few months ahead.

According to Associate Professor Ed Newbigin from the University or Melbourne and coordinator of the Melbourne pollen count, the start of the hay fever season varies according to location and from one year to another.

“Typically European trees like birch and elm pollinate at the end of winter and beginning of spring and grasses start pollinating a month or two later.  But with climate change causing milder winters in southern Australia and wet season changes in the north we expect to see differences in when plants flower as well as where plants grow.

“This year we are expecting bad hay fever seasons for Canberra and Sydney but allergy sufferers in Melbourne should have an easier time of it.”

As well as affecting the length and duration of the pollen season, climate change has the potential to impact people with asthma and allergies by causing more extreme weather events like thunderstorms.

Thunderstorms can trigger asthma flare-ups as stormy winds and moisture can cause the pollen to rupture into smaller particles, which can be inhaled deeper into the lungs.  The situation is exacerbated when grass pollen levels are high just before a thunderstorm.

National Asthma Council Australia Spokesperson, Associate Professor Sheryl van Nunen, from the Department of Clinical Immunology and Allergy, Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney, said that the best way to manage an allergy is to avoid triggers.

“The best way to treat allergy and asthma is to prevent it occurring. Have your lungs checked by your GP to make sure you’re as healthy as possible, and let them know if you think pollen, thunderstorms or weather changes affect your asthma.

“Use your preventer medication every day, if prescribed, even when you are feeling well, and ensure you have an up-to-date written asthma action plan from your GP so you know what to do if your asthma flares up.

“Apart from the misery caused, be aware that the worse your hay fever is, the worse your asthma will be and the more likely you are to need hospitalisation for asthma.

“Moreover, house dust mite is more prevalent at the change of seasons and many people spring clean, so the 74% of Australian hay fever sufferers who are house dust mite allergic will have their house dust mite allergy aggravated then too.”

Melbourne and Canberra now have their own pollen monitoring services operating from 1st October – to 31st December (melbournepollen.com.au andcanberrapollen.com.au), while Sydney pollen monitoring starts on 1st September 2015 (sydneypollen.com.au).  Other Australian cities are set to have a similar service established soon.

Allergen avoidance doesn’t cure asthma, but by reducing your exposure to allergen triggers you may improve your asthma control and help make symptoms easier to manage.

Top tips to reduce pollen exposure from National Asthma Council Australia

  • Try to stay indoors during and after thunderstorms.
  • Keep car windows closed and use recirculated air when pollen levels are high. Car air filters will also help.
  • Consider planting a low allergen garden around the home.
  • Check plants in your garden for those that could be aggravating asthma/allergies.
  • Wear glasses to keep pollen out of your eyes.
  • Avoid mowing lawns or wear a mask if it is unavoidable.
