5 Ways To Keep Household Cleaning Simple


Cleaning is something that we all have to take care of. By putting it off, the house just gets messier and the task becomes more daunting and complicated. However, cleaning does not need to be difficult and arduous.

We have some simple tips to help you stay on top of your cleaning. When kept simple, cleaning your house can become less time consuming and allow you to enjoy a clutter-free home.

Here’s how you can keep your household cleaning simple:

1. Storage – Have a place for everything

If you know anyone whose house always seems to be tidy, I’m pretty sure that they will tell you that storage is essential. Storage is important because it gives every item in your house its own little

  • Kitchen storage - Placing your tea, coffee, herbs and spices into lidded jars before placing them into cupboards will make it easier for you to know where each item belongs

Results of our survey


We surveyed over 3,000 cleaners on our database to find out what cleaners really think about their customers. We discussed the cleanest habits, the worst habits and their view on people’s overall attitudes towards cleaning. We want to understand the cleaner’s perspective and get insights that might help us improve the service for both cleaners and customers.

The great news is that 98% of our cleaners felt valued and respected by their clients. In addition, 85% of cleaners said that their clients were lean and tidy. This indicates to us that relationships between customers and cleaners are generally very good.

We then asked about client cleaning habits to see if there are any ways that we can help cleaners in their jobs. According to respondents in our survey, 56% of householders do very little or no cleaning between scheduled sessions. It seems that some customers could help cleaners do a better job by doing some tidying up...

New Year Cleaning Resolutions


New Year, New Me? Every year many of us set goals and targets for the New Year. This year, I filled my ‘Goals for 2020’ diary with familiar-looking resolutions.  

  1. Lose weight

  2. Learn a new skill or hobby

  3. Lose more weight

  4. Read one book a month

  5. Lose even more weight

  6. Travel more

My New Year’s resolutions are always centred around getting fit and losing weight. I try to go to the gym three times a week or stick to a strict diet. But I’ll be the first to admit that after four gym sessions and a second week of not indulging in any takeaways on a Friday night, my hopes and dreams of achieving this so called perfect body usually come to an end. 

This year I want to set myself more attainable goals. Goals that can help my mental wellbeing, reduce my stress levels and allow me to sleep better at night. The great news is that it does not involve toiling away at the gym or giving up cake. It simply entails keeping my house clean.

In this blog, I...

Congratulations to Maria Helena! She trumped hundreds of housekeepers across the whole of London to win this year’s Housekeeper of the Year award and a £150 prize.

Customers were asked to nominate their housekeeper for the award. We received a huge response in recognition of the valuable work that house cleaners do across the city. Maria Helena received the most votes from customers and got outstanding reviews.

We spoke to Maria Helena when she came to our offices to collect the award.

How did you feel when you found out you had won the competition?

I was very surprised and very happy! I remember reading about last year’s winner, Bilyana and wishing that it could be me one day. I am very pleased to win this award.

You got huge support from your customers who are clearly very happy with you. What is your secret?

I really enjoy the work which is why I give it my best. I like and respect my customers and treat their home as I do my own. I am not perfect but if I...
