"We  love what we do and do it with passion." Soulla and Stephen

Soulla says, ‘It all began when I was attempting to find a cleaner. It was a few weeks before Christmas and I must have called and emailed over half a dozen cleaning companies, but to my surprise, I had not one response or call back! “Seriously, how hard can it be to find a cleaner?”

That was the beginning of Time for You Chelmsford! Both myself and Stephen, believe that customer care is key. We both love getting to know our customers and our cleaners. This way we can find the perfect match.’

Makes me wonder if they ever take time off! I would not hesitate to recommend Time For You in every respect.”

Is having pets at home a problem?

No, this is completely fine.  When we interview cleaners, we check if cleaners have any phobias, allergies or preferences around working with pets.  If you have pets, we will make sure  that the cleaner we match you with is comfortable around pets. If you have a dog for example, some of our cleaners are happy to let them out while they are cleaning. We also have the appropriate dog walking  insurance and on request, can  arrange a cleaner who will be happy to take your dog for a walk.  We have recently matched a customer who has snakes, with a cleaner who also has snakes!!

Remove Tough Grime With Less Scrubbing

Whether it’s built-up soap scum on the shower walls, ground-in dirt on the floor tile or dried toothpaste on the vanity top, a Magic Eraser sponge (or other brands) will make short work of it. Just dampen it and rub it on the offending mess. In most cases, the mess will come right off. These sponges are especially useful for removing ground-in dirt from porous floor tile and getting those pesky nonslip strips in the bottom of your tub clean.

Magic Eraser sponges clean bathroom showers well and are available at grocery stores, hardware stores and wherever cleaning supplies are sold. Unlike regular sponges, they wear out pretty fast, so stock up.

Happy New Year to all of our customers, old and new, and all of our loyal cleaners.

Visit Central Park in Chelmsford

For a moment of peace, this park curls along the north bank of the River Can in the centre of Chelmsford.

The park is divided into meadows, pastures, a nature reserve, a war memorial garden and a large lake with geese and swans.

On the south shore is the Cake at the Lake cafe, a pillar of local life, while the Central Park Viaduct brings some spectacle to the park.

This eye-catching, 18-arch construction dates to 1842 and was built for the Eastern Counties Railway.

Be sure to take walk along the River Can, and you may forget that you’re in the middle of one of the largest cities in Essex.

Essex Police Museum

A trip through more than 150 years of policing and justice in the county of Essex, this museum is at the Essex Police Headquarters next door to Chelmsford Prison.

Many of the exhibits hark back to the Victorian period and 20th century, when justice was swift and brutal.

The museum has the death mask of Frederick Browne, convicted of the murder of a policeman in 1928 and hanged four months later.

Other morbid artefacts are the shoes of Camille Holland, killed in the notorious Moat Farm Murder of 1898, which made national news.

On the lighter side you can step into a Victorian Cell and inspect a Noddy Bike, a small four-stroke bike used by officers in the mid-20th century.

Youngsters can dress up as an officer and have their prints taken.

7 Things You Should Clean Every Single Day

We know what you're thinking: "Another thing to add to my to-do list?!" But trust us when we say there's a method behind our madness. Checking off these seven easy chores each day will make a huge difference in your home in the long run by cutting down on future scrubbing and scouring — not to mention harmful germs and bacteria. Consider these the absolute essentials that need to get done daily for that fresh and clean feeling.

Fight Furniture Stink

If your pet has couch privileges (or thinks he does), your furniture can start to smell like the dog park. Sprinkle baking soda on your cushions to freshen them, let it sit for 15 minutes, and vacuum it up. We also like Febreze Pet Odour Eliminator to quickly keep upholstery smelling nice in between deeper cleanings.

Fancy something fun and relaxing to do in the summer months, when Time For You helps free up some of your time? How about watching a movie outdoors? well bring your blankets because the movies being shown outdoors this year are listed below! 👍😍🤩

Quote of the year

"No matter how 'busy' a person is, if they care they will always find time for you."

Things in your home that you should be cleaning!

How many times a day do you touch your remote controls? And how many times can you honestly say you’ve cleaned yours? More than likely it's near enough zero. A study conducted by the University of Virginia, found that half the remote controls tested contained cold viruses. To get rid of these germs once and for all, you can  grab an disinfectant wipe and apply a quick scrub at least once a month.

Did you know...

1. Britain’s first ever public audio broadcast was made from Chelmsford on June 15, 1920. The broadcast featured the singing of Australian opera diva, Dame Nellie Melba. It was said to have been received as far away as Newfoundland

2. Chelmsford is the birthplace of radio after Marconi opened the world’s first wireless factory in the town in 1899.

3. Chelmsford, Massachusetts was founded by emigrants from Chelmsford in 1653.

Our most fun review. Thank you!

"Wow! I know this sounds a bit over the top, but I have dreamt of having a cleaner for years! I dreaded Saturdays as that was my chore day, the whole thing seemed to just eat into my weekend!! So when Stephen came round to tell us how it all worked, I was literally jumping for joy! I felt like a little girl and I have to apologise for being a little too familiar by hugging Stephen before he left, haha. But then Time for you have taken the stress out of my weekend and like they say on the website, have given me 4 hours of my time back a week, which I calculated works out to 208 hours a year, which I think is near enough 3 weeks. Well worth it! I am so pleased with our house cleaner they have matched me with and the wonderful job she is doing. Customer care is fantastic!!! Thank you"

Dishwasher DO’S & DON’TS

Dishwashers are an invention that have changed our lives and freed up a lot of time in the kitchen which otherwise would have been spent washing and drying all the dishes by hand. Using a dishwasher can also be better for the environment. However, in order to get the best out of your dishwasher, here are some do’s and don’ts.

Do use all the space you can and try and stack the dishwasher in the most efficient way. Put bigger pieces in first and then fill the smaller items around them.

Don’t overfill the utensil holder. If you cram too many in, not all of them will be cleaned sufficiently.

Don’t rinse plates before putting them in the dishwasher. Scrape the plates to ensure the larger bits of food have been removed but rinsing the plates will use additional water and modern dishwashers can cope with food residue on plates as long as you run the dishwasher that day and don’t leave them standing there too long.

Do run a full load. Dishwashers are a great way to be efficient with water, however if you only run half loads, water will in fact get wasted.

Don’t overload the dishwasher. Although you should only do full loads, don’t go to the other extreme and overfill. You run the risk that not everything will be completely clean, resulting in you having to wash them again (and wasting both water and electricity).

Do run the dishwasher at night. Waiting until later in the evening can lower your electricity bill. It also makes sense as you can place all the dishes from the entire day into the dishwasher and wash them all in one go.

Don’t unload the top drawer first. Sometimes the upper dishwasher rack can store water. If you empty these items first, you can end up getting the dry items on the bottom level wet.

Do use Rinse Aid - using this regularly will guarantee a better, shinier clean.

Do clean the dishwasher regularly. Inspect the drain for bits of food and remove them before running the machine again. Also use dishwasher cleaner once a month on an empty cycle to keep the machine clean.
