September 17th is National Professional House Cleaners Day!
The national day celebrates professional cleaners everywhere, recognising their contribution to creating a cleaner world.
Professional house cleaners help people all over the world - and their hard work keeps homes happy and healthy. In fact, clean houses are scientifically proven to reduce stress, improve sleep and even prevent illness.
Over the last 18 months, cleaning has been more important than ever before, with regular cleaning recommended to help the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Whether it was cleaning hospitals in the NHS, or wiping down high-touch surfaces in flats & houses, the work of cleaners has been critical throughout the pandemic.
The fantastic work that cleaners do - every single day
We want to take the opportunity to shine a light on the fantastic work that cleaners do - every single day.
The hard work of cleaners is deceptively simple. Some people think that it’s just a matter of wiping surfaces, mopping floors and loading or unloading the dishwasher. But that couldn’t be further from the truth!
Cleaners have to exercise amazing attention to detail at every single house they work in. They see hundreds of homes a month - each one different from the last. Every surface, floor & appliance needs to be cleaned in its own way - with the correct products and the right techniques.
We’ve learned so many tips & tricks from speaking with our Housekeepers - from how to clean a bathroom perfectly, to the essentials for cleaning an oven.
We’ve put that knowledge to good use, creating cleaning guides, and sharing these tips with national and international publications. Read more about our cleaning guides, as well as some of our favourite press mentions, here: 5* cleaning tips from the UK’s best cleaners
But it’s not just about having the know-how. As well as having superb attention to detail, cleaners also need to be punctual, reliable & professional. Customers depend on their cleaners showing up, and doing a great job - so it’s critical that they’re trustworthy and super reliable.
