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!!

How often should I clean this?

In the new world of everyone being at home all the time keeping on top of cleaning can be difficult. With added mess of the kids being home and the all around extra use of the house it can become difficult to manage. I for one, have been rushing around cleaning things I never knew needed cleaning! That being said an adage goes that your space reflects your mental state. To help with these I will be doing a series of blogs showcasing what you should clean each: Day, Week, Month, 3-6 Months and Yearly.

 

What you should clean every day or 2 days:

Make your bed

Everyday when you wake up do the simple thing and make your bed. Admiral McRaven of the US Naval Force gave an amazing speech on success and how the first thing anyone should do with their day is start by making their bed. This leads you on to a good start for the day.

 

Clean the dishes

Dishes are one of those things that we all hate to do. Doing the dishes immediately once you have finished cooking or finished eating means you will never see the horrible mountain which all takes twice as long to scrub! The simple process I follow when cooking is to run a bowl of very hot soapy water before I start. Then, as I am cooking, I can just add the dishes to the bowl. This extremely simple change allows me to wash the dishes in a meer fraction of the time

 

Laundry

Similar to the dishes, laundry should be done whenever needed. Having a laundry basket that is the correct size for your washing machine is an easy and quick way to tell you how often you need to do the laundry. When your basket fills up, put the washing on. 

 

Santise kitchen and bathroom

From your kitchen counters to your bathroom sink there are so many surfaces in your house that need to be kept clean, especially with everyone at home. This doesn’t need to be a long chore! Using antibacterial surface wipes you can clear all the surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom in under 5 minutes. These are extremely important as bacteria can live on surfaces for a long time if left unchecked. 

 

Coffee maker

The final thing that should be cleaned every day is your coffee maker. Not all of us have them and not all of us use them. However, for those like myself that love a freshly brewed coffee in the morning, cleaning it can quickly become a chore. Especially for those like me who have used their machine so much more since they closed the coffee shops! Cleaning the machine every day makes for much much better coffee and is also much more hygienic! 

 

These are the simple tasks that should be done every day! These simple things will lead to better all round health and a clearer mind. While everyone is at home, making these a habit instead of a chore is highly recommended. Be sure to check back for more blogs in this series!

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 😊
