Can cleaners still work in clients homes?
Yes. The government have made it clear that domestic cleaners will still be permitted to work inside peoples’ homes as long as the government guidelines on social distancing and staying safe are followed. All of our cleaners pass a successful the training and the exam for Covid-19 rules and what is mandatory to do when are in your home and we have a certificate to prove that!
What are we doing?
We want to inform you of the actions we are taking as a business to protect our cleaners and our clients as far as possible during the COVID-19 outbreak.
You will, of course, know the government have ordered people to stay at home wherever possible but with a few exceptions.
On the other hand, we don’t need to point out that a clean house is even more essential during these times.
