It is now more important then ever to keep your home clean and help prevent the spread of infection through contact surfaces. Where cleaning work is being done, please observe the following precautions to ensure the safety of everyone.

  • The Cleaner should wash their hands on entering and leaving the client’s home

  • 2 meters social distancing should be maintained at all times.  Where possible, the client should leave the property (or vacate the room) while the cleaning is being done

  • Most of our cleaners have said they are happy to wear a face mask. The client can provide this for their cleaner however some Cleaners do have their own 

  • Please use cash free payment where possible

  • If you or anyone in your household have symptoms or if you are a vulnerable person –please skip cleaning

  • Please ensure good ventilation in the area where the Cleaner is working, including opening the window

On top of your regular cleaning routine we also recommend the following:

  • Special attention should be paid to 'high-touch' areas, such as door, cupboard handles, appliance handles, light switches, TV remotes, tables and countertops

  • Surfaces should be cleaned using regular products, then disinfected using a good antibacterial spray

  • Warm water should be used when cleaning surfaces and mopping floors, to maximise the effectiveness of cleaning products

  • Use two mop buckets (one for detergent and one for rinsing) and clean after each use

  • Cleaning cloths and mop covers should be washed at a high temperature (60C+) after every use

  • Don’t forget to clean the outside of cleaning product bottles as they are items that we frequently touch and could transfer coronavirus on to. The simplest way to clean them is by washing them in warm soapy water.

What do you need to clean?

If you have been unable to get your hands on disinfectant or antibacterial products, soap and water is actually one of the most effective options for cleaning surfaces. Also make sure you dry surfaces such as worktops and chopping boards thoroughly after cleaning as dampness helps any remaining germs to survive.  

We hope this guide is helpful. For further information on keeping your home clean against conronavirus please check this NHS website.

Thank you. Stay safe!
