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.

How to tackle those tricky red wine stains

Hello and welcome to Cleanhome Sevenoaks! This is the first of many blogs to come as part of the Cleanhome series! Many of us love a good glass of wine, be it at a party or after a long week at work. Eventually, however, someone will inevitably spill some on that lovely shirt you’ve just bought and you have no idea how to remove the stain. Fear not! After trying these tips and tricks we saw great results.


The Salt


As soon as the stain is made try blotting it with paper towels to dry it. DO NOT scrub it as the pigments will spread to other fibers in the fabric. Add a generous amount of salt to all parts of the stain and leave to dry for approximately 5-10 minutes. After this using soda water will help wash away the stain. Follow this with a usual high heat machine wash. This method comes recommended from the team at realsimple.com


Dish soap and Hydrogen Peroxide


Many people, such as “Nikkicole” on appartmenttherapy.com, like to use a mixture of dish soap and hydrogen peroxide. The recommended ratio is a 3 parts hydrogen peroxide to 1 part dish soap solution. This helps to lift the stain, combining an agent to break up the remaining pigments.


White wine


Cleanipidia.com also recommends using this is the age old trick used by people everywhere and it’s very simple: white wine. Simply pour onto the stain while still fresh to help dilute the colour of the red wine.




This last trick is definitely not to be used on anything with any form of colour on it. Having said this, bleach is possibly the best remover of any stain on a white shirt. “Andy Teeter” from vinepair.com highly recommends using bleach to remove that steadfast stain. Soak the shirt for approximately 10 minutes in a solution of bleach and then launder on its own, to avoid the bleach ruining other clothes, at a high temperature to help alleviate the stain.

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
