The initial contact from Claire was professional and demonstrated a company who want to provide their customers with a quality service – a refreshing change from a previous provider of cleaning services.
The Cleanhome service is very efficient: they found me a reliable cleaner and were very attentive to my needs.
We have been using your cleaning service since May 2015 and are very pleased with the cleaner we have each week. She is very trustworthy, reliable and helpful and I am very happy with the service we receive.
Dawn has been punctual and has carried out her required duties in a conscientious and very acceptable manner. I have no hesitation in recommending her.
Keeping on top of cleaning and decluttering can seem like a constant and neverending task however this simple 10 minute method can reduce or even completely stop any clutter buildups.
The method is very simple. Get yourself a picnic basket and start your trip around the house. In each room collect any items that are out of place and add them to the basket. When the room is done, put away everything in the basket into its permanent home. If it does not have a permanent home then leave it in the basket. This should take no longer than 2 minutes per room. Once you have finished every room you will be left with a few items in the basket. Decide if these need to be binned or kept then sort them appropriately.
This simple task can be repeated daily to stop the clutter buildup.
This is a simple ongoing task to help declutter everywhere in your house. The challenge is simple. Pick one area in your house, whether that is an overly cluttered draw/cupboard or a whole room is up to you. Take three containers and spend 10 minutes sorting it into these three containers. The containers are: Donate, Discard and Put away.
Time yourself and sort your chosen area in 10 minutes. Thepeacefulmom.com says a good way to decide what pile things should go into. Pay attention to how you feel about each item. If the item “sparks joy” in you then it can stay. If it makes you sad or drained then place it into the donate or discard containers.
Once the 10 minutes is up you can now take the containers to the appropriate place. Donate boxes can be taken to family members or charity shops. Everything in the Discard container should be disposed of in the correct manner. This includes recycling where possible. Lastly the Put away container can be sorted and items taken to where they should be actually live (don’t just empty it back where you took it from)
We hope these two little challenges/tasks help you to declutter your home in no time. The 10 minute challenge should be repeated every day in a different area. For more great tips and tricks be sure to check out our social media pages.
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:
Note this guidance is for people who are fit and well, and is dependent on the following social distancing guidelines being followed:
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.
