Results Of Our Survey

Rachael

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

Rachael

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...

Rachael

Does pet hair go everywhere around your home? You see it all over your floors, sofa, curtains and even clothes! We love our pets too much to get too annoyed with them. 

If this is really bothering you, we suggest you groom your dog more often, cover the furniture with a sheet or towel and train them not to climb on furniture. 

You cannot prevent all pet hair from being shed around your home. We have some simple tricks to help you clean up after your beloved pet. 

1. Use a lint roller
