A very flexible and accommodating service. They clean as much or as little as you want at a time to suit you.

-Mr C – Dunton Green

We are really happy with the efficient service provided by Clean Home. They have sourced a cleaner who is not only reliable and trustworthy but also cleans our home to a high standard.

-Ms G – West Malling

I am delighted with the service from CleanHome. I have had the same cleaner since I signed up and she is great!!! Philippa offers a very personal approach and I would have no difficulties if I ever had cause for complaint.

-Ms S – Sevenoaks

Really happy with Cleanhome, very helpful and professional. After a visit to our home to discuss our requirements we were recommended a cleaner quickly. After she was no longer available we were quickly recommended a replacement who we’re very happy with. Communication is always quick which is much appreciated. Would recommend!

-Mrs A – Sevenoaks

I used Cleanhome when my wonderful cleaner left after 7 years and I didn’t know where to start. Cleanhome have constantly kept in contact with me, organised the very best cleaner, who is at one with my animals and children; and even sorted it for me, when my tidy fairy goes on holiday. It’s seamless and so far, I have had nothing but gorgeous and efficient people in my home. Totally recommend.

Food you can grow from your leftovers

Food waste is something we as a society have a great deal of. You might be surprised to learn how many fruits and vegetables can be regrown from scraps! 

These tips are a great way to start growing your own fruit and veg as well as save some pennies each month. 

 

Carrots, turnips and other roots

The tops that are cut away from carrots and other similar root vegetables can all be regrown into full vegetables. Simply put the tops in a shallow bowl of water with the tops facing upwards and you should see new greens growing in a matter of days. These can be harvested as they are or transferred to soil for new fully fledged growth!

Celery

Celery is another vegetable that is very simple to regrow. Simply cut off the bottom of the celery and float in a shallow container of warm water. This should then be kept in a warm sunny place. After about a week or so you should see new leaves sprouting. These can then be cut and used as they grow or planted in your garden to grow into a full plant all over again.

 

Bulb Fennel

Bulb Fennel is regrown in the same way as celery. Simply put into a shallow bowl of water and let regrow. For best results leave about 2cm of the root to regrow from.

 

Potatoes

Potatoes need little to no work to regrow. Almost any potato will start forming an eye in a dry place. These can be left to grow slightly and then planted in soil facing the direction you want the top to sprout from.

Sweet Potatoes

Very similar to normal potatoes, sweet potatoes can be regrown from sections. If you cut it in half and then suspend both halves using toothpicks. You should find roots start to come out of them followed shortly by sprouts coming out the top. 

Allow the sprouts to grow to about 10cm. Then simply twist them off and place them in a container of water. When the roots reach about 2 cm in length, plant in soil for fresh new potatoes.

 

Lettuce, Bok Choy, Cabbage

Once a lettuce has grown it can have its leaves cut multiple times and will continue to regrow. A simple way to regrow a lettuce that forms a head is to suspend the root section in water similar to ways mentioned previously and let the leaves sprout a second time. 

You can also regrow a lettuce from individual leaves. Place in a bowl with a little warm water in the bottom. Keep it in a sunny spot and mist the leaves with water every couple of days. New roots will begin to form in about a week or two and can then be planted in soil. 

Pumpkin

This famous Halloween treat is a great plant to regrow. Some prefer toasting the seeds from a pumpkin to make a delicious and healthy snack however you can save some of the seeds to regrow your own pumpkins. Spread the seeds in an open area with good sunlight and cover in soil. 

The great alternative to this is to replant an entire pumpkin! Once you have carved your pumpkin and finished displaying it simply fill with soil and plant the entire thing and watch the stem regrow into more pumpkins!

 

These are all great activities to do with the kids and keep them busy during the upcoming summer holiday (despite the months they have already had off school!).

Bespoke Service

We are not happy until you are! Your cleaner will usually tailor their services to fit exactly with your requirements, including spring cleaning and ironing.

Peace of Mind

Only 1 in 50 applicants makes it on to our carefully screened database. We interview them twice, visit them in their own homes and take up at least two references. And if they still subsequently don't measure up to your standards, we will send you someone who does.

Personal Cleaner

We don't operate in teams, and therefore you get the same cleaner every week. This is good because you develop a relationship with your cleaner. We have some clients who have had the same cleaner for years and years - and that's what we want for you.

COVID-19 5th January Update

 

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:

  • 'This can include work in other people's homes where necessary - for example, for nannies, cleaners, social care workers providing support to children and families, or tradespeople (this is not an exhaustive list)'

Note this guidance is for people who are fit and well, and is dependent on the following social distancing guidelines being followed:

  • No work should be carried out in a household where people are isolating or where an individual is being shielded.
  • The cleaners can continue work, providing that they are well and have no symptoms. No work should be carried out by a cleaner who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild, or when someone in their own household has symptoms.
  • No work should be carried out in a household where any occupants are clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus, or households with a possible or confirmed case of coronavirus.
  • Whilst in the house. a cleaner should maintain a safe distance of at least two metres from any household occupant at all times, and ensure good ventilation in the area where they are working, including opening the window.
  • Upon entering the home, cleaners should wash their hands using soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • Cleaners should wash their hands regularly, particularly after blowing their nose, sneezing or coughing, and when leaving the property.

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.

Best regards
