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

Tips to store your Christmas decorations!

Storing your Christmas decorations shouldn't be a hassle!

Decorated Christmas tree

We’ve all wondered how to store away our Christmas decorations safely. I know I’m not the only one whos unpacked all the boxes from the loft to find my favourite bauble in pieces. 

This year make the change and follow some of our great tips to store your decorations away safely.

Tree Bag

Get yourself a tree bag. These are a great way of storing artificial trees without the need to tape up the box it came in 7 times like I used to. These can be bought fairly cheap online

Plastic storage container

Bauble Box

Clear Plastic containerThere are several box styles that are great for storing baubles. There are some you can simply buy in store however I opted to make my own. I strongly recommend getting clear storage boxes, these will allow you to see what is in each box without rifling through and making a mess each time. In these simply put in cardboard dividers to make the perfect storage slots for baubles and other tree ornaments. As you are making them yourself you can make slots for each bauble or ornament specifically making sure they wont get damaged bumping into each other!


Fabric bin for wrapping paper

I dont think any of us ever buy the right amount or wrapping paper and if you’re like me there is at least 2 or 3 partly used tubes left hanging around at the end of the year. A great way to store these without damaging them is to use a fabric bin or a washing hamper and simply storing them vertically inside. This will keep the ends from getting crushed while saving a lot of space from the conventional horizontal method.

Christmas lights

I have two great methods for storing Christmas lights. We all know the dance of having to wrestle with the tangled mess of christmas lights that we shoved back in the box the year before. My personal favourite is to get a reel similar to those used for extension cords and wrapping them around this. This will leave your lights untangled and easy to wrap around the tree when it next comes to decorating! The other, slightly cheaper, method is to get some sturdy cardboard around 12” by 19” and wrapping them around this in a similar fashion.

Organising the small bits

My last great tip for you is to help organise the small things. Items such as gift tags and ribbons and bows. The method I use is to invest in an organiser normally used for bathroom items. These are great as they have lots of pockets for smaller items while still having a lot of space. The one I use rolls up nice and neatly with a clip to keep everything packed away and together.

I hope these tips help you to keep your Christmas nice and organised! We hope you have a lovely Christmas and a Happy new year!

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
