Why a Professional Cleaning Company is still a Must

All the indications are that COVID-19 is going to be with us for a while longer yet. So more than ever, using a professional cleaning company is a must, for safety and peace of mind.

We are scouring the government guidelines, so you don’t have to. We have put in place the protocols we need with the safety of our clients and our Helpers as our top priority.

Safety is our top priority

These measures include:

  • Social distancing
  • Wearing of masks and using hand gel on public transport
  • Hand washing and use of hand gel on entering a client’s home or business
  • Removing shoes in your home

Currently, our Helpers are not required by government guidelines to wear a mask while they are cleaning. However, all our Helpers carry an emergency kit which includes masks and gloves. If you would like your Helper to wear these, please ask.

All of our team, including all new Helpers, complete an online CPD Infection Control Certificate from Staff Skills Academy .

Cleaning Products

Our clients generally provide their own cleaning products for our Helpers to use, and this prevents cross-contamination from one premises to another.  We can advise you on which products and materials your Helper needs. Please get in touch for more information.

We’ve been testing Delphis Cleaning Products, and we are recommending these to all of our commercial clients. As well as being effective against Coronavirus, we love these British made products because they are:

  • Highly effective
  • Low odour and kinder to our Helpers
  • Plant based
  • Supplied In bottles made from recycled plastic.

The products have passed our rigorous testing with flying colours – we were especially impressed with the Limescale Remover and the X Factor Spot Cleaner.

Once London is back to a Tier 1 rating, we will be using this range in our Deep Clean and End of Tenancy Cleans, as well as in our set-up packages for commercial clients.

Although Delphis are professional cleaning products, they are also available for you to use at home and we highly recommend them.

Ready to Serve You

For as long as London is in Tier 1, 2 or 3 measures, we will do all the heavy thinking and planning around your cleaning so that you don’t have to. By using a professional cleaning company, you can be confident that we have the procedures in place so that we can continue to serve our clients.

Cleaning Products Review: Astonish

When it comes to cleaning, our Helpers have high standards. So who better to carry out a cleaning product review?

We asked our Just Helpers team to review Astonish Cleaning Products. Here’s the verdict.

Astonish Cleaning products are “cleaners with a conscience” – so they are perfect for Just Helpers! The products are approved by the Vegan Society . This means they contain no animal ingredients and are not tested on animals. Astonish are a UK family business, and part of their mission is to keep their road miles to a minimum. Their laboratories, manufacturing and packaging are all under one roof.
