Cleaning Guidelines & Precautions We Are Taking During the Coronavirus Crisis

 

With the current climate around the Coronavirus, we want to re-assure all our current and future clients of precautions we will be taking for your safety as well as ours.

We returned to work as normally as we could with limited dates from w/c 1st June, work that was postponed before ‘lockdown’ were given priority to book dates first, we then opened dates in weekly blocks initially.

We are now taking bookings for w/c 6th July so give us a call to get your work booked in if you haven’t already done so, once that week is fully booked we will open the next available dates for bookings.

Cleaning guidelines & precautions we are following for the foreseeable future

Yours and our teams’ safety are our priority and we will be following all recommended government guidelines, our team have been issued with antibacterial hand wash to use throughout the day along with gloves to wear while we are a working or visiting properties and all our equipment is being disinfected daily.

We will also be observing social distancing guidelines and ask you to respect the same guidelines with our team. During cleaning, we suggest you stay on an alternative floor of the premises while we are working or in a room away from the working area with adjoining doors kept shut.

What we ask from you

  • Do NOT arrange for other tradespeople to be in your home at the same time as we will be there if they need access to the same areas as we will be using
  • Respect the social distancing guidelines
  • To avoid unnecessary contact, we ask you to remove any personal items from any rooms to be cleaned, such as children’s toys, breakables, collectables, small items of furniture, etc.
  • We would request that anyone staying in the property while we are present will remain in a separate room to where we are cleaning – if you wish to go out while we are there then that is ok with us
  • During the pre-clean inspection, please respect the 2-metre social distancing while discussing with our technician any areas of concern regarding spots & spills you may have.
  • Allow us to ventilate the areas we are working in by having windows and internal doors open where possible
  • Don’t be offended if we refuse your offer of drinks.
  • People and pets must be kept away from the areas being cleaned and treated both during the cleaning and the drying process.
  • If someone in your home is showing symptoms of Coronavirus or has been infected please contact us and if necessary we will re-schedule your appointment.
  • Please pay your balance promptly by bank transfer – if you cannot pay by bank transfer please contact the office, cash or cheques will not be taken during the current climate.

 

Rug Cleaning Drop off & Collections

If you are looking to get rugs cleaned we can still collect these from you or you can drop them to our unit by appointment.

Either way, social distancing will still need to be observed.

  • If we collect from you we will require for the rugs to be rolled up and left in an easily accessible place for us to pick them up, if this is not possible due to large rugs then we can discuss alternative ways to collect. When we return them we will arrange a suitable place to leave them, if they are large rugs we can discuss placing back in place for you.
  • If you drop rugs off to us we will schedule an appointment time for you to drop them off, we will take them out of your vehicle and into our workshop, when you collect the rug we will place it back into your vehicle.
  • All rug inspections will be done in our workshop and any concerns emailed to you before we start any cleaning. Rugs will also be left untouched from the time of entering our workshop for 48 hours before anything is done to them.
