The UK Cleaning Industry

Ali

Each year, the British Cleaning Council produces a report on the UK cleaning industry. The cleaning sector is often overlooked so it is great that this report champions the vital services provided to UK workplaces, hospitals, schools, public spaces and homes.

The most striking aspect of the report is the sheer size of the sector. The cleaning sector contributes £55 billion to the UK economy and employs 1.6 million people. The British Cleaning Council divides the industry into four sub-sectors: Cleaning activities, Facilities management, Waste and resource management and Landscape service activities.

We have created a summary infographic to highlight the most important data. We have focused on the Cleaning activities sub-sector and summarised the key trends in commercial and domestic cleaning.

Keeping Your Household Safe During Lockdown

Ali

As we enter the fourth week of “lockdown”, we thought it might be helpful to provide reminders and tips on keeping safe and healthy. We include reminders of Government restrictions and guidance because it is easy to forget as demonstrated in this video.
 
Lockdown FAQs
 
The Government has provided a helpful dos and don’ts FAQ page. The page deals with the practicalities of life under “lockdown”, such as visiting dentists, dog-walking, driving to parks etc.
 
Staying home and social distancing
 
The full rules and restrictions can be found here. You can only leave home for shopping for basic necessities, one form of exercise a day, any medical needs or travelling for work purposes, but only where you cannot work from home.

Ultimate long weekend cleaning projects 

 

 

 

 

 

To help make the most of your time during the four day “lockdown” over Easter, we have compiled a list of cleaning projects. We will admit that at first glance they don’t seem like a lot of fun, but you will feel so good when you finish them and experience the results!  

High touch areas 

In busy households, high touch areas require frequent cleaning to stop the spread of germs and viruses. Around the house, this includes light switches, door and cabinet handles, hand-rails, table and countertops, remote controls as well as all bathroom surfaces. Your personal electronic devices, such as smart phones, laptops and keyboards should be cleaned regularly as they harbour microbes.  

High touch areas need to be cleaned, sanitised and disinfected regularly. Cleaning can be easily done with a soapy damp cloth. Use disinfecting...

Update On Our Services During The "Lockdown" Period.

Ali
                                         
We continue to monitor Government policy and take appropriate actions. Last Friday, the Government clarified that cleaners can work in people's homes as long as they are well and adhere to Public Health England guidelines. They are permitted to travel to and from work.
 
Cleaners on our platform are available to work and have been instructed on best practice guidelines. We have also introduced extra safety and cleaning measures to protect themselves and customers. Nonetheless, we request that cleaning sessions only go ahead if essential. This is to prevent the potential spread of Coronavirus during the "lockdown" period.
 
You can find more information on our service during the "lockdown" period on our website here.
