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!!

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 😊

How to clean hard water buildup

When living in a hard water area, dealing with the buildups it causes becomes a very regular struggle. Hard water build ups are caused by minerals in the water such as calcium and magnesium. These stains tend to appear on glass, porcelain, tiles and metal surfaces. Meaning things such as taps or tiles in bathrooms will often end up looking ugly or decolourised. Fear not however as we have found 4 different solutions to get rid of hard water build ups.

 

Tip 1 – 

The first one from wikihow.life is to mix a solution of half water and half vinegar into a spray bottle. Spray over larger areas such as tiles or the bathtub and leave for a few minutes. The vinegar will break down the minerals in the hard water and leave it easy to wipe off. 

 

Tip 2 – 

Next is a tip from maidbrigade.com who recommend making a paste from vinegar and baking soda. Apply the paste to where the stain is such as around the base of a tap or sink and leave it for 15 minutes. After this scrub clean and rinse with water. Ensure you dry the area thoroughly to remove the possibility of more hard water marks. 

 

Tip 3 – 

Our next tip for the day comes from thespruce,com. They recommend soaking a clean rag in vinegar and drape it over a faucet. Let the rag sit for at least half an hour however an hour is recommended. After this time, remove the rag and use a non scratch sponge to lightly scrub, paying special attention to those areas with greater deposits. This process can be repeated if needed until the area is free from build ups. 

 

Tip 4 – 

Maidbrigade.com has one final tip to give. Their final solution is to spray fresh lemon juice on the affected area. After 10 minutes rinse the area off and you should see lighter areas of buildup have been removed. Make sure you dry the area completely after this process.

 

All of these tips and so many more can be found in our blog section or on our social media pages. Be sure to follow us to not miss out.

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.
