Excellent reliable and cost-effective service.

-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!!

  1. Firstly cut one of the craft sticks into thirds and use the center piece for the tail.
  2. Next paint all the pieces to whichever colours are wanted.
  3. Once dry simply glue the two whole craft sticks at the head of the peg and the tail piece onto the bottom.
  4. Leave to dry and then play away.

The wikihow instructions are very easy to follow and it takes no time at all.

  1. Choose the colour of your lightsaber and add a circle of cellophane coloured to your choice to the lens of the torch. This will make it light up correctly.
  2. Craft tubes using the paper which matches the width of the torch
  3. Finally attach the tubes over the head of the torch overlapping the tubes as minimally as possible.
  4. The lightsaber is now complete. Turn on the torch to power it up


Wine Cork Boats –


With a very simple design these mini cork pirate ships are great for a fun day out at the park where you can race them against each other to find the ultimate pirate ship.

You will need:

  • Wine Corks
  • Cellotape
  • Toothpick
  • Elastic bands
  • Paper for a sail

The redtedart.com blog posted this brilliant idea.

  1. Place elastic bands around 3 corks of similar sizes to make the base. It is recommended to use 2 bands, one on either side of the corks
  2. Design your sail to look like anything you like such as the famous pirate skull and cross bones ready to take to the seas.
  3. Add the sail to a toothpick by piercing it through the bottom and the top whilst bending the middle
  4. Finally stick the toothpick into the center cork and you are ready to go
  5. If you are using this in a public space it is recommended to attach a piece of string to it so as to not lose it


These three simple ideas are great ways to keep the kids entertained throughout the weekends and holidays.

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 Announcement


Firstly, we sincerely hope you and your family remain safe and healthy in these extremely worrying times.

I write in respect of the business fee as we are asking all clients who miss any cleans to keep a record of them. We can then ensure you are refunded any business fees paid over this time for the cleans that have been missed.

As the cleaners work directly for you it is up to you whether you wish to retain their services at this time and we support wholly any decision you make. We also ask that you follow up to date government advice to keep both yourself and your family safe, as well as the cleaner.

The government advice is that people are being allowed to travel to and from work, but only where that work can not be done from home. This means that your cleaner can continue to clean for you should you wish, but that government guidelines on social distancing must obviously be observed.

Most of our clients are continuing with their cleaner, however others are asking that we put the cleaning on hold for the moment, which we are also very happy to do - we will support your wishes to the very best of our ability and will ensure that any of the missed cleans get either refunded or ‘banked’ – whichever you prefer, and we guarantee you will not lose out financially.

Both the cleaners and myself are self-employed. We are a small, local business and we will continue to do our best for both our clients and cleaners in these challenging times. Our office will be open as usual and we appreciate the continued support of all our valued clients.

In return we would like to offer our assistance, if any is needed, to all our clients at this very difficult time, and in particular to our older clients who may be self-isolating. If there is any help that we can provide in any way then please, just give us a call and we will do everything we can to help.

If anything good comes out of this terrible situation, then it’s that we all need to look out for each other, and we are very happy to play our part.

Stay safe and well 😊
