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!!

DIY Cleaning mistakes that make your house dirtier

When doing simple DIY cleaning around the house many people make these common mistakes which result in more dirt and dust buildup. 

 

Overloading your dishwasher 

Stacking too many dishes and utensils in your dishwasher will actually leave your dishes unclean. Not only will food particles be unable to escape between the dishes but the soap will be unable to clean the surface of thee dishes. 

 

Not cleaning the most touched points 

Things such as taps, handles and door knobs are some of the most touched areas of your house. These can all be simply cleaned with a daily disinfectant wipe to get rid of germs. 

 

Spraying furniture with polish 

Spraying the furniture with polish directly actually creates a build-up that will attract more dust to it. This is a very common mistake people make. To counter this you should spray your cloth then wipe the furniture. 

 

Using the same cloth on all surfaces  

By using the same cloth repeatedly you might end up spreading germs instead of cleaning them. This especially applies hen changing rooms as some germs such as food germs from the kitchen sides may be spread to other furniture if used outside the kitchen. All cloths and towels should be washed after each use and kept in specific rooms. 

 

Not dusting windows 

Before you clean your windows with any form of solution you should always dust the windows. If not done when you spray the window you will see grease or dirt marks left behind which can become difficult to remove if left.

 

Rubbish bins 

A common place people forget to clean, is their bin. This can lead to unpleasant smells as well as large bacteria buildups. Bins should be washed regularly inside and out. Check out this previous blog from Cleanhome Haywards Heath showcasing some great Bin Hacks

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
