COVID–19 Update 17th April 2020

COVID-19 UpdateAs we end another working week following the Easter break, the majority of our franchisees across the UK are sticking to their decision to suspend attending appointments in clients’ homes.

But that’s not to say their businesses are closed; rather they are very much open as it’s still possible to call or email for an all-inclusive, bespoke quote based on your exact requirements.

Some of our franchisees are now taking future bookings in the sincere hope that all cleaning services will be seen as notably more essential than they are just now and those who are being specifically asked to attend homes during these unique times are insisting on the strictest social distancing measures be observed or clients simply leave the premises being worked in.

Naturally, all franchisees undertaking any work right now are using any relevant PPE and taking all necessary health and hygiene measures required.

Our Australian colleagues are currently concluding the process of all obtaining their Infection Training Certification via an Australian e-learning initiative to give further assurances to their clients – we’re hoping to be able to follow their lead as soon as possible!
