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!!

More ways to keep on top of your computer/desk cleaning

After reading a fellow cleanhome blog about how to keep your desk clean and tidy we thought we would throw some more tips your way. Having a tidy desk can very often lead to a much better working performance. When you have phone calls and emails and people coming into the desk all on top of you trying to get work done it can often lead to a very busy day. Follow these for help to keep your desk organised once you have it tidied.

 

Tip 1 – In/Out system

Having a very simple in and out system helps to keep on top of all incoming work. Using open top organisers allows other people to place things into the system simply which means no more piles of paperwork on your desk when you get back. Another useful tip for incoming paperwork is to use a box or drawer completely seperate that other people can use and you can then sort through later.

 

Tip 2 – Personal items

As nice as it is to have personal items on your desk, they often just cause clutter and distraction on your desk. Remove any items that are not necessary to work including items you can return home. Distractions like these will only keep you from achieving the goal of a clutter free and tidy desk.

 

Tip 3 – Use vertical space

Most people have things spread out all over their desk which leads to obvious clutter. By thinking vertically you can achieve so much more space than your desk ordinarily has. Placing your monitor on a tall stand allows for more storage space beneath it, or for even more practicality place your monitor on top of a simple drawer system for even further filing.

 

Following these simple tips will help bring more space to your desk. Make sure you keep up with our blog section for more top tips and tricks.

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
