FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do you vet your cleaners ?

 All cleaners initially complete an application form.  We conduct telephone interviews only with those who we believe show potential at this stage.  If we are happy with the interview we will then arrange a home interview with the cleaner, where we check proof of id/address and references.   Only after we have carried out all of these checks do we add somebody to our database of cleaners. 

Can I meet the cleaner before they start?

Read more

Yes, once we have matched a cleaner to you, we ask them to contact you directly and arrange to come and meet you. This allows both of you to get to know each other and discuss your specific cleaning requirements.

Who supplies the cleaning products and equipment?

Our cleaners will use your cleaning products and your vacuum, mop, sprays and cloths etc, this guarantees that you are happy with the products used and it eliminates cross-contamination from vacuum cleaners or cloths etc.  

Am I employing the Cleaner?

No, the Cleaner is self-employed and fully responsible for his/her own Income Tax and National Insurance.  

How do I pay the Cleaner?

Cleaners usually like to be paid each time they clean, by cash or bank transfer which will be agreed with the cleaner when you meet them. Please discuss this directly with the cleaner.


What happens if the Cleaner is sick/on holiday.

The Cleaner will try and make another arrangement with you – coming in the day after,  doing a longer deeper clean on  another visit or simply catching up over the next few cleaning sessions. If none of these solutions are satisfactory, then you can call us to request that we introduce an alternative Cleaner.

 
What happens if I don’t like the Cleaner?

You will be given the opportunity to meet your cleaner before they start work for you so that you are comfortable with our selection from the outset. Once you have chosen your cleaner, they will be your regular cleaner.  If at any time you decide your current Cleaner is not for you then can contact us and we will introduce another cleaner to you.

What if I’m not happy with the quality of work?

We will contact you after you have had your first few cleans to ensure you are happy. If you are not fully satisfied then we would encourage discussion with the cleaner in the first instance. If you prefer it we can speak to the cleaner and if we cannot resolve any issues then we would replace the cleaner,

What tasks can I ask my cleaner to do for me?

This is entirely up to you, within reason. As a general rule we would expect standard housekeeping tasks such as  general floor cleaning,  vacuuming, surface cleaning and polishing as required, in addition to keeping bathrooms and kitchens clean and hygienic. Some clients need extra assistance with bed linen changes, some light ironing or perhaps interior window cleaning. We would not include external window cleaning or carpet cleaning though.

 Do I get the same Cleaner every week?

We want you to build up a relationship with the cleaner, so yes, the same cleaner will come at the same agreed time on a weekly basis, allowing for sickness and holiday.s

Do I give the Cleaner a key?

That is completely at your discretion and something you need to decide between yourself  and the cleaner. Some home owners are present during the cleaning, some give a key after a period of time and some when they first meet the cleaner.  Another popular option is a Keysafe, but please discuss and agree this with your cleaner at your first meeting.

Are you insured ?

 We are insured for up to £2 million pounds, against the cleaner accidentally damaging your property.  Please note that in order to keep our pricing competitive, we do have an excess of £100 on all claims. The insurance is primarily there for serious damage.

Bio Tab

This is an area which has a thriving modern vibe. It also has a rich and varied history.

Bothwell Castle is built on a high, steep hill overlooking the River Clyde between Bothwell and Uddingston. It was built in the late 1200s but never completed due to an active role in the Wars of Independence between Scotland and England which lasted from 1296 – 1356. Ownership of the castle varied over this time as it fell into English hands many times.  It was finally recaptured by the owner, Sir Andrew Moray before being owned in the late 1300s by the powerful earls of Douglas. It remains as an example of one of Scotland’s most impressive medieval strongholds.

The earls of Douglas took their name from their original seat of Douglas Water in South Lanarkshire. They served William Wallace and Robert the Bruce through the Wars of Independence and gained honour and power. The prestige of the family was hugely increased when James, 2nd Earl of Douglas married Princess Isabel, a daughter of King Robert 2nd of Scotland.

Today, Bothwell and Uddingston show no sign of their tumultuous past, with an excellent golf course, a selection of individual shops, great restaurants and the Tunnock’s biscuit factory.

The Tunnock’s family business was founded in 1890 and is still based in Uddingston.  Their tea cakes and caramel wafers are much loved by ex-pat Scots based throughout the world, as well as those at home. Visitors are able to tour the factory, although tours tend to be so popular that they are booked up to a year in advance.

One of Uddingston’s most famous sons is Sir James Black, a pharmacologist who created beta – blocker drugs and won a Nobel Prize in 1988.

You can visit Viewpark Gardens, a renowned horticultural centre with water features and a display of Highland and Japanese plants. The gardens host an annual Summer Flower Festival to which many local schools escort their classes as part of their outside learning curriculum.

Moving north and east brings us to Cumbernauld, Croy, Twechar and Dullatur and Kilsyth.

Cumbernauld has grown from a small village to a sprawling new town but still retains a strong community feeling.

Cumbernauld boasts a Theatre which is not only one of Scotland’s oldest producing theatres but is also well respected for its year round productions of music, drama, comedy and dance from visiting companies. It also has a fabulous pantomime!

 

Between Kilsyth and Croy is the relatively new Auchinstarry Marina, which is situated on the Forth and Clyde Canal. At the marina you can visit Scotland’s first eco pub and meander through their scents and sensitivities garden before adjourning to the pub or spreading a blanket on the canal banks and enjoying a picnic, hopefully on one of the warm sunny days we get in this country!  Both villages have a long and respected history of mining, as does much of this area. The Forth and Clyde Canal was the first canal to be built in Scotland .

The building of the privately-owned Forth & Clyde Canal was approved by an Act of Parliament in March 1768.Work began on its construction in June 1768 when the governor of the Canal Company dug the first spade-full of earth at the eastern sea lock just west of Bo'Ness.  Over the years settlement grew up around the sea lock, developing into the town of Grangemouth in the east. The 35-mile long canal was designed to serve as a trade route between east and west, carrying coal and other commercial goods between Scotland's towns and cities. It was to be large enough for seagoing vessels to develop links with trade in Europe and America. In 1775 work had to stop just north of Glasgow due to a lack of funds. Dissatisfied with this, city merchants from Glasgow sought funding to build a branch of the canal into the city, and this was achieved by 1777. Finally, in 1785, government money forfeited from the Jacobite Estates became available. The canal could then continue its journey to the River Clyde at Bowling.

For walkers, the Forth & Clyde Canal follows a route across Scotland to the Antonine Wall.  Try this scenic walk, starting at Auchinstarry which leads through the wild and desolate Dullatur marshes. This route includes a stretch of Antonine Wall as well as some excellent canal walking. 

The former mining village of Twechar is also on the route of the Forth and Clyde Canal and is a local tourist attraction as it features visible remains of a Roman Fort and the Antonine Wall. The reopening of the canal in 2001 brought opportunities for the development of Twechar and it has seen new housing, new business units, an upgrade of leisure facilities as well as walkways in and around the village and glen.

Today the area is well served with good transport links to Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh via both rail and road and many people choose to live here and commute to their place of work. There is a good selection of shops, golf courses, sports centres and restaurants within the area. Cumbernauld is also home to the famous Barr’s Irn Bru factory, which like Tunnock’s produce, is much coveted by Scots both home and abroad.

Moving west towards Glasgow town centre we come to the East End of Glasgow which underwent enormous regeneration in the run up to the 2014 Commonwealth Games. As well as leaving a legacy of superb sporting facilities there is also the housing built for the athletes which is now being rolled out to local people.

The Emirates Stadium has recently hosted the Davis Cup tie between Britain and USA with both Andy and Jamie Murray playing a part in the British tennis team’s victory over the USA. The Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome is also situated at the stadium.

Many of the swimming events were held at Tollcross pool.  In the 1700s many of Glasgow’s tobacco lords owned most of the Tollcross area – the names Corbett, Dunlop, Hopkirk, McCall, Smellie and Wardrop are well known within the town. The tobacco lords did not view their estates as being only family seats. For example, after 1783 James Dunlop purchased land in order to diversify into many nascent industries such as mining, brewing, sugar processing and iron works.

The Wellpark Brewery on Duke Street is Scotland’s oldest ongoing business. Brewing was taking place on the site even before the formation of the Tennent’s business in 1556. Today, you can tour the brewery and sample their wares.

This is only a very brief, and fascinating, overview of the area we cover. We will update it on a regular basis and if there is anything that you would like to be included, whether historical or to publicise an upcoming community event, we would be pleased to hear from you.
