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!!

Things you didn’t know you could recycle

Many of us have heard of the “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” scheme and try to live by it within our households. There are many products and items around your house that you may not know can actually be sent to different companies and be reused or recycled. 

 

Crayons 

Crayons may not be a common item you throw away however, over half a million pounds of crayons are thrown away every year. These will never biodegrade so the waxy substance is left in landfill and is now causing issues. Instead of throwing those crayons out send them to the Crayon Initiative. They are a company who will melt crayons down and remanufacture them. These are then sent off to art projects or to children’s hospitals across the US.

 

Prescription drugs 

In the UK we do not have a government scheme to collect unused or unwanted prescription drugs. It is estimated that £800 million worth of prescription drugs are wasted and binned every year. A charity called “Inter Care – Medical Aid for Africa” collects unused/unwanted medications from doctors surgeries around the UK and delivers them for free to over 100 health centers in sub-Saharan Africa. 

 

Wine Corks

The glass in wine bottles is a very common recyclable item. The cork however, often gets overlooked and simply binned. Donate them to a company such as “Recork” who will use it to make recycled materials. 

 

Mobile Phones 

According to recycling-guide.org.uk most people in the UK now own a mobile phone which can be recycled. An easy way to reuse it is to pass it down to family or friends however, there are many places and sites which offer to buy your old phone as they will recycle it for parts. Envirophone will send you a box and freepost envelope for you to send your phone to them. Envirophone also make a charitable donation with every phone. 

 

Glasses

Eyeglasses are an item many of us wouldn’t think to recycle. Visionaidoverseas.org is a charity that will take old spectacles and use them to help those in struggling countries to see better. 

Their website offers a tracker to find your nearest local recycling center or you can ask for a postal pack which you can send your glasses too them.

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 😊
