A very flexible and accommodating service. They clean as much or as little as you want at a time to suit you.
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.
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.
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!
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.
A good night’s sleep is key to a productive day and feeling good. Whilst almost all of us will wash our sheets and pillowcases regularly, something very few people do is wash or clean their actual pillows. With your head resting on them all night every night the buildup of sweat and skin cells can get to horrible levels rather quickly.
This being said, not all pillows are equal. The first port of call when deciding how to wash your pillow should be the care label on the pillow. If this is not available we have put together a simple guide to washing the two most common pillow types.
The most common pillow types around the UK are Down and Fibrefill. Luckily most of these are machine friendly. Goodhousekeeping.com recommends using a gentle cycle with warm water heat for the initial wash. Use a small amount of powdered detergent. Liquid detergents are more likely to leave a sticky residue in the fibres. Follow this by tumble drying on a no heat or air only cycle. It is recommended that you do not use a dry detection cycle as these will only detect surface dryness.
Memory foam or latex pillows unfortunately cannot be machine washed. Although most foam pillows are resistant to dust mites, it is still very important to clean them on a regular basis. To clean them remove any pillow case and covers and put them on to wash as per their care labels. Next thoroughly vacuum both sides of the pillow and put on a no heat/air only dry cycle for 20 minutes. Clean soiled areas with a cloth dipped in a mild soap solution. Ensure you then wipe the area with a damp cloth. Ensure the pillow is fully dry before putting cases back on.
Sometimes a simple wash or clean of a pillow is not enough and your pillow may need replacing. A simple test to see if your pillow needs replacing is to fold it in half. If it does not spring back into shape then you should probably replace your pillow.

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