What you can expect

Our prices are inclusive of all materials, including welcome packs and consumables to be left on site. This service currently involves a fully disposable clean due to the risks of potential cross infection from COVID-19. This means the clean is carried out using disposable wipes and blue roll, and all items used are discarded before moving between areas. All waste will need to be double-bagged and removed from the property between guest stays. Our staff are all DBS checked and we carry a £5m public liability insurance policy.

Given the current circumstances and guidelines, you will see below that we have an additional fee for COVID-19 cleaning. Once the guidelines have been lifted, and should you wish to continue with our services, this additional fee will be removed.

Our cleaning and laundry service includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • An antiviral clean throughout with additional emphasis on high touch areas 
  • Steam cleaning of duvets & pillows between guests 
  • Hoovering & mopping (where necessary) of all areas
  • A full sanitation clean of all bathrooms including mopping. 
  • Full clean of kitchen, including cleaning of all kitchen appliances 
  • Interior glass cleaning throughout – including utility and conservatory rooms
  • Antiviral cleaning of all handrails 
  • Dusting of ledges, skirting boards and window seals
  • Emptying and changing of bins including recycling 
  • Welcome/provision pack (see the following section)
  • A tidy of front and back gardens
  • Lightbulb and appliances checked, faults reported and replaced where applicable 
  • Keys, key safe, remotes and telephones cleaned thoroughly with antiviral wipes

Our cancellation policy is to permit free cancellations of services providing we receive at least 24hrs notice. We will charge 50% of the cleaning fee for all bookings cancelled less than 24hrs from cleaning date.

The welcome pack, which is included within the price, consists of the following:

    • Washing-up liquid 
    • Antibacterial soap in all kitchen and bathrooms 
    • Disinfectant cleaner for guest use in kitchen and bathrooms 
    • Disposable colour coded cloth for guest use in kitchen and bathroom 
    • Antiviral spray for guest use in kitchen and bathrooms

    • Premium biscuits 
    • 1 pint of semi-skimmed milk 
    • Refuse sacks 

    Any items from the welcome pack that are left at the end of the stay will be discarded. 

    In addition to the welcome pack, we are currently leaving red soluble laundry bags and asking guests to strip their own beds. The guests will be required to place their linen into the provided sack. The sack is then put straight into the washing machine and dissolves to ensure there is no risk around cross infection. A cleaning card will be left for the guests to explain our expectations of them on departure. We can forward a copy of this to you separately for information if required.
