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!!

What to clean when someone in your house is ill

With almost all news stories recently being dominated by the Chinese Virus called Coronavirus, we thought it would be a good time to talk through the top areas to clean as soon as anyone in your house, especially a child, gets ill. These tips should help to keep illness away and stop it from spreading if you do get ill. 


Air out the house 

Cracking open the window for as little as 15 minutes is very important as it allows fresh air into the house. 


Hand Washing 

It is very key to wash your hands often when people in your house are ill. Help children understand the importance of washing your hands with them. This can be done to the tune of happy birthday which lasts approximately 30 seconds. 


Hand Towels 

Having followed the previous tip of handwashing it is also then very important to change any hand towels at least once a day. 



Whether it’s the common cold or the full-blown flu, tissues are an essential item to have. These can, however, end up piling up very quickly. A good way to avoid this is to keep a dedicated bag or bin for tissues close to where the ill person is located, be that the sofa or in bed etc…


Clean Bathrooms 

When someone is ill, bathrooms should be kept extremely clean. A deep clean should be done at least twice a week and surfaces (especially taps and door handles) should be wiped down with antibacterial wipes at least once a day. 


Common Surface Cleansing 

Clean commonly touched items and surfaces with cleaning cloths and rubbing alcohol. Items and surfaces such as remotes, phones, door handles, fridge handles and light switches are all places you should wipe down once a day. 



Whilst someone is ill you should change their covers once every two or three days depending on how ill they are and then once they are better all bedding including pillows blankets and duvets should be washed. 



Something many people forget when they are ill or someone else is ill, is to wash their toothbrush. Cleanmama.com recommends leaving your toothbrush in hydrogen peroxide for 15-30 minutes and then thoroughly rinsing it in water. Toothbrushes or toothbrush heads should be replaced once the ill person has recovered.


These are all simple ways to reduce the risk of spreading infection and following these on a regular basis should reduce the chance of you or a loved one getting ill in the first place. Cleanhome offer great fully vetted cleaners at affordable prices. Be sure to check our blog section and social media for 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 😊
