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!!

-Mrs C, Great Ouseburn

Spring Cleaning Checklist 2021

Text Spring cleaning, cleaning tools and tulips on green

It’s finally here, after a long lockdown winter – Spring is here! It’s time to refresh your home and bring back that sparkle. 

We’ve created the only Spring Cleaning Checklist you need this year to deep clean your house. Broken down room by room, we’ve even included the little bits everyone forgets about!

What if I have no time? 

We are all busy people, we get it! It can be a daunting task to tackle the whole house in one go. Instead, try tackling one or two rooms per day or even week! Breaking the task list down in manageable chunks can even make it an enjoyable process. That’s why we’ve made this room by room checklist for you.

If you need help to get your spring clean done, we can help! Give a call on: Call Cleanhome York On 0800 061 4191

What is Spring Cleaning?

Spring Cleaning is exactly what is says on the tin. According to Wikipedia – ‘It’s the practice of thoroughly cleaning a house in the springtime’.  It normally happens in the first weeks of April or on the 1st April. 


Why is Spring Cleaning Important?

Spring cleaning is important for our health and wellbeing as well as our home. It will help remove nasty allergens, bacteria, and hidden dirt you don’t normally get in a standard clean. These cleans also keep your house in tip-top shape, by tackling mold and mildew before it becomes an issue.

Why Do I Need A Checklist?

A checklist will keep you organised and on track, making sure nothing is left without a good clean. An organised mind is a happier one, spring cleaning takes a lot of effort so this checklist is going to help you through it.

Bespoke Service

We are not happy until you are! Your cleaner will usually tailor their services to fit exactly with your requirements, including spring cleaning and ironing.

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
