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!!

Balloon and Dart Painting

This month we at Cleanhome are having a Kids Projects Month. This means our blogs this month will be focussed around simple projects you can do with the kids using household objects. Our project for the month is Balloon and Dart Paintings.


Things you will need:

  • Poster Paints
  • A canvas/Paper
  • Balloons 
  • Darts or something to throw that will pop a balloon
  • Funnel


The Method:

  1. Using the funnel or any other method, add a small amount of paint to each balloon. Do not overfill the balloon. 
  2. With a small bit of paint in the balloon, blow some air into the balloon and tie the end sealing the air and paint inside.
  3. Stand up your canvas or attach your paper to some standing surface.
  4. Make sure the area you are doing this is either covered or you do not mind it being covered in paint
  5. Attach the balloons to various positions on the canvas
  6. Finally the fun part. With the balloons all attached stand back and get ready to pop them. 
  7. Throw whatever sharp implement you are using, such as darts, at the balloons. When they pop the paint will explode over the canvas leaving great patterns forming your piece of art.


Leave the painting to dry before moving from your covered area. If you want the painting to look exactly as it was when the balloons explode then lie the painting down to dry however for an added dripping effect leave hanging vertically until dry. Don’t miss out on the other projects to do with the kids, check out our social media pages to see the collection plus more great 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 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 😊
