Frequently asked questions

How are your cleaners background checked & vetted?

All of our cleaners have a basic DBS check. If you need your cleaning to take place when residents are present, please let us know so we can supply cleaners with an Enhanced DBS check.

We have also vetted all of our care home cleaners to ensure that they have the experience to deliver a consistent, 5-star service at your care home.

In what areas of London do you provide care home cleaners?

We have availability for regular care home cleaning all over London.

We'll send you the highest rated care home cleaners in your local area.

What equipment do I need to provide?

Your care home must have a mop, bucket and vacuum cleaner.

If you want your cleaner to use specific sprays and cloths, you need to provide these too. Alternatively your cleaner can provide their own cloths and sprays for a small fee.

How many cleaners will you send?

Once we have all the details about your requirements, we'll work out how many hours the clean will take and then decide how many cleaners to send.

For small care homes, you may only need one cleaner, while larger care homes may require a team of cleaners.

However many cleaners we send, we'll make sure that the same highly-rated cleaners are sent to each of your cleans.
