-Mr P, York

Thank you for sending me two such pleasant hard working young ladies. Where do you find them?

-Mrs G, Thirsk

I would recommend the Cleanhome service to anyone it’s great value for money easy to set up and Sharon and Phil are extremely professional. My cleaner Kate always does a fantastic job.

-Mrs B, York

Cleanhome York were very quick to respond to my initial query and were able to find me the right support in less than one week. I was looking for a cleaner as soon as possible … but I never thought Cleanhome would be able to act so quickly. I had not heard of Cleanhome York before so I was very impressed with this service. Vicky has been excellent – its like having a second pair of hands … only better!!

House Cleaning Tips With Pets Around Your Home

It often happens that you have guests over and after having a good long conversation with them and spending some great time catching up, you notice something – their backside is completely covered with your pet’s fur. The amount of mess that your pets can leave in their wake can honestly become quite embarrassing. At Cleanhome York, we understand your concern about this minor but annoying issue. This is why we have put together some cleaning tips that you should follow to keep your house clean even with pets around…

Cleaning Tips for pets

Keep The Pets Clean

The first of our cleaning tips is the most obvious one which is to make sure that your pet is clean. Take care of the hygiene for your little dog or your cat by making sure you set up a good grooming routine. If they love to go out of the house and play around in the dirt, make sure you give them a thorough wash when you get them back into the house. The longer they roam around your house with all that dirt in the home, the messier your home will be.

Update Your Sofa

One of the most favourite spots for your pets in the house is the sofa that you and your guests sit on. In order to keep the sofa from getting too messy and covered with pet fur, you should really consider upgrading the material on the sofa. You can opt to get a sofa with material that does not act like a fur magnet – maybe something made of a tightly woven material or leather.
If you don’t want to get a new sofa, just get a sofa cover that you can easily put into the washer and have a replacement on hand. We know how bad it feels to keep your pets off the couch and you won’t have to if you follow this tip.

Add Shaving Cream to Your Inventory

Relax, we are not suggesting what you might be thinking with this. Adding shaving cream to your cleaning supplies can actually help out quite a bit when it comes to cleaning up the toughest of stains that your pets will leave around the house. Spray the stain with the shaving foam, let it sit for about a minute and wipe it off with warm water. That stain will instantly disappear off of any rug.

Bring Out The Old Rugs

Place the old rugs in your home in places where your pet likes to lounge around. Place the smaller ones on the front and back doors where your pets come in and go out of. This will make sure that the lingering dirt from your pets as they come back inside the house is minimized. The best option when it comes to these rugs is the indoor-outdoor rugs.
Indoor-outdoor rugs do not need a lot of thorough cleaning and pets actually love to hang out on them. They are not that expensive either so if your pet leaves an irreversible stain, you can always go out and get another one. At least the rest of your house will remain relatively cleaner because of them.

What is the best vacuum to use for Pet Hairs?

When it comes to deciding what is the best vacuum to use this can be tricky, as a lot of people have a preference for certain brand names and of course budgets come into account. Here is a buying guide to the Top 8 Best Pair Vacuums for October 2018.

Peace of Mind

Only 1 in 50 applicants makes it on to our carefully screened database. We interview them twice, visit them in their own homes and take up at least two references. And if they still subsequently don't measure up to your standards, we will send you someone who does.

Personal Cleaner

We don't operate in teams, and therefore you get the same cleaner every week. This is good because you develop a relationship with your cleaner. We have some clients who have had the same cleaner for years and years - and that's what we want for you.

COVID-19 5th January Update


Just to let you know we are open for business as usual and you can continue to have your cleaner clean your house.

The government has made it clear that cleaners are still permitted to work inside peoples' homes as long as Government Guidelines on social distancing and staying safe are followed (see below). In summary:

You can be outside of your home for work purposes where your place of work remains open and where you cannot work from home, including if your job involves working in other people's homes.

The full text can be found here New National Restrictions from 5 January (in England; there are similar texts available for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). Specifically relating to cleaners, the guidance continues: 'This guidance applies to those working in, visiting or delivering to home environments. These include, but are not limited to, people working in the following areas:

  • 'This can include work in other people's homes where necessary - for example, for nannies, cleaners, social care workers providing support to children and families, or tradespeople (this is not an exhaustive list)'

Note this guidance is for people who are fit and well, and is dependent on the following social distancing guidelines being followed:

  • No work should be carried out in a household where people are isolating or where an individual is being shielded.
  • The cleaners can continue work, providing that they are well and have no symptoms. No work should be carried out by a cleaner who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild, or when someone in their own household has symptoms.
  • No work should be carried out in a household where any occupants are clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus, or households with a possible or confirmed case of coronavirus.
  • Whilst in the house. a cleaner should maintain a safe distance of at least two metres from any household occupant at all times, and ensure good ventilation in the area where they are working, including opening the window.
  • Upon entering the home, cleaners should wash their hands using soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • Cleaners should wash their hands regularly, particularly after blowing their nose, sneezing or coughing, and when leaving the property.

The good news with regard to cleaning is that the cleaners can social distance from their clients very easily, and we would advise that, if you are at home when they are there, that you remain in a separate room to your cleaner.

If you are happy to adhere to the government guidelines - and if your cleaner has not been in touch already - then please just call the office and we will ensure that your cleaning continues.

Best regards

The Cleanhome Team
