Following the guidance from the UK Government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Maid to Butler have implemented a new policy for social distancing when working.

COVID-19 is mainly passed on by person-to-person spread between people who are in close contact with one another and by droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It can also spread through contact with a surface or object that has the virus on it. Cleaning helps minimise the spread of coronavirus.

Fortunately, normal cleaning methods do kill this virus. Cleaners,play an important role in keeping people in their buildings, and homes protected and are on the frontline in the battle against coronavirus (COVID-19) to keep staff, customers, and particularly the most vulnerable safe.

Our staff will only work providing they are well and have no symptoms, however mild, they will not be allowed to work if someone in their own household has symptoms.

  • No work should be carried out in any household which is isolating or where an individual is being shielded.

During a visit

On entry to the customer’s home/establishment you should wash your hands using soap and water for 20 seconds. You should wash your hands regularly, particularly after blowing your nose, sneezing or coughing, and when leaving the property. Where facilities to wash hands are not available, hand sanitiser should be used, and you should carry this with you at all times. you should maintain a safe distance (at least 2 metres) from any household occupants at all times and ensure good ventilation in the area where you are working, including opening the window.

  • You should ask the householders to stay in a separate room while the work is carried out. If this is not possible, they should stay as far away from you as possible
  • Prior arrangements should be made with vulnerable people to avoid any face-to-face contact – for example, when answering the door.
  • Wearing P.P.E including disposable or washing-up gloves and aprons for cleaning and if necessary, mouth and foot covers. 
  • Use disposable cloths.

 The usual Maid to Butler household products, will be very effective at getting rid of the virus on surfaces, take special note of the frequently used hard areas of entry, grab rails and door handles.
