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.

School Closures And Your Cleaning Sessions

Ali
 
As you know UK schools will be closed from Friday the 20th of March. We understand the difficulty that many people will have in finding childcare at such notice. This could affect you or your cleaner. We have informed cleaners that some customers may have their children at home whilst schools are closed. We have asked them for understanding and forbearance during this time.

It is possible that your cleaner may need to look after their children. They may contact you to reschedule sessions. Please be as flexible as possible. If it is not possible to find a convenient solution, please let us now and we will arrange a replacement.
 
As well as everyday actions recommended by the NHS, we have given additional instructions to cleaners.
 
  • Carry and regularly use alcohol-based hand rub
  • Regularly sanitise your mobile phone
  • Where feasible, keep a distance of at least 1 metre with all people you come into contact with and refuse handshakes
  • Check your body temperature in the...
