To help you as swiftly as possible we have listed a few of the most asked questions we receive. If you don't find the question you're looking for, don't worry, just get in touch with us and we'll help you the best we can.



» How much will I pay?


Our hourly rates include the cleaner's wage and the agency fee. Rates vary depending on the area you're in and the number of hours you require each week. If you want a free quote all we'll need is the approximate number of hours, you need and your postcode.


» How do you vet the cleaners?


We first carry out a telephone interview. If the applicant seems suitable we then arrange for a more thorough interview to take place in their own home. Only after taking proof of ID and address along with references do we accept them onto our database. We then monitor every cleaner thoroughly for the whole time they are with us.


» Do I meet my cleaner before the first clean?


Of course! We know the cleaner will be in your home and that personalities are often as important as cleaning standards. Once we choose a cleaner for you, we'll arrange for them to come along and meet you so that you can approve our choice and discuss the cleaning tasks you require. It's important that your cleaner is someone you like so there's no need to agree to the first person we send you. Once you're satisfied that we've sent the right person for you, you can then mutually arrange a regular clean day and time.


» What if my cleaner can't make it, or is sick?


Just give us a call and we will provide you with a cleaner to cover.


» Will I have to be at home when my cleaner cleans?


No, our cleaners are vetted and are happy to hold your house keys. We will provide you with a Key Acknowledgement Form for your cleaner to sign.


» Do I have to supply cleaning materials?


Yes, our cleaners do not carry their own materials as the majority of our clients prefer to specify the substances used in their homes. Please be aware that due to health and safety bleach is a banned substance.


» Can I change my cleaner if I am not happy?


Yes, of course, we have a large and varied cleaner base and we'd be happy to assign you someone different if you are unhappy for any reason. Just give us a call.


» Do you have insurance cover?


Yes, including a minimum of £1,000,000 public liability insurance. In line with all other insurance policies, there is an excess on the policy. In order to keep costs reasonable, the excess is £100 per claim.


Dusting Tips

Dust first and vacuum second. Any bits of dust and dirt will fall to the floor where they will be collected in the vacuum cleaner.

The best dust cloth is a damp, clean, microfiber cloth. To dampen, hold the cloth by a corner and lightly mist with clean water from a spray bottle. The cloth should be just damp enough to pick up dust without leaving moisture streaks on the furniture. This is the best way to deliver a clean, safe and green way of cleaning.

When dusting wall units follow this procedure: first lift and dust each object, then dust the shelf both underneath and behind. Start from the top of the unit and move down to the bottom.

Never dust a warm or hot light bulb with a damp cloth, as the bulb will shatter.

Dampen a clean, soft paintbrush to remove dust from louvered doors, telephone and keyboard keys, carved furniture, etc.

Venetian blinds can be maintained with minimum effort. Close the slants, dust, close the slants the opposite way and dust again.

Wipe wood surfaces with the grain to avoid streaks.


Removing Pet Hair

A damp cloth or rubber glove will remove pet hair from the upholstery of the furniture.


Floor Cleaning Tips

Sweep or vacuum floors first to collect crumbs and dirt before damp mopping. Start washing the floor in the farthest corner of the room and work your way towards the door.

Use a cloth on the end of a mop handle to reach the narrow space between appliances.


A plastic hair brush or hair pick will straighten the fringe on area carpets. Comb the carpet fringe in a direction away from the centre of the carpet.

Vacuum or sweep the bathroom floor to collect any loose hair, dust and dirt prior to washing the floor. Remove mats, waste baskets and any other items sitting on the floor that may get in the way.

Ensure that the correct vacuum attachment is used for the specific floor surface you are cleaning.

To reduce the risk of slip and fall accidents, place anti-slip backing under rugs.

Place a mat inside and outside each entrance to your home to reduce the dirt that is brought in on shoes and boots.

Protect your floors and furniture by preventing surface damage. Never set wet cloths, bottles, buckets, or damp mops on furniture, hardwood floors, carpet or marble.

Look underneath the furniture before vacuuming so the vacuum does not pick up small items such as toys, jewellery, coins, etc.


Kitchen Cleaning Tips

Appliances that hang under cabinets save both space and time, as cleaning under them is no longer an issue.

To soften splatters inside the microwave, fill a cup with water and microwave on high for a few minutes. The steam will loosen any baked on food so you can easily wipe it clean.

Allow burner rings from the hob to soak in a sink full of hot, soapy water. This will loosen the dirt and make them easier to clean.

Spray oven racks in a plastic rubbish bag for easier cleaning.

Dish cloths and sponges can be incubators for germs. Launder dish cloths regularly, and microwave damp sponges in the microwave on high for several minutes to kill bacteria.



Make it a habit to wipe up all spills immediately when they are much easier to clean. Once the spill has dried and hardened, it will be more difficult to remove.


Vacuuming Tips

Change the vacuum bag as recommended by the manufacturer to maintain maximum suction.

If your vacuum has poor suction, it might be the result of a blocked hose. To check for a blockage, disconnect the hose and then drop a penny down the hose. If the penny falls out, your hose is likely not the problem.

A small hand vacuum with a beater bar is useful for vacuuming upholstery and carpeted stair steps.

Look underneath the furniture before vacuuming so the vacuum does not pick up small items such as toys, jewellery, coins, etc.


Picture Frames

To clean a picture, wipe the top of the frame first, down the sides and across the bottom. Always spray glass cleaner on your cloth and never directly on the glass to prevent seepage under the glass that could damage the picture.


Chrome Cleaning Tips

A dry clean microfiber cloth will polish chrome to an eye-catching gleam.

To remove and clean finger prints from stainless steel appliances, add a small amount of baby oil to clean, soft microfiber cloth and wipe the surface in the direction of the
