Cleaning Express is continuing its expansion across England. Starting in London in 2015, we recently announced our move into Birmingham. Now, it’s time for the south of England as we expand into Brighton and Hove. This is a big move for Cleaning Express, and we look forward to bringing our experience and great customer service to the area.

Our domestic cleaning services in Brighton & Hove promise to bring high quality to our customers as well as great work for our new team of cleaning experts.

The Areas Cleaning Express Will Cover

Covering around 83 square kilometres with a population of 277,000, Brighton & Hove is a promising market for Cleaning Express. In London and the West Midlands, we have numerous areas we cover, but luckily, Brighton & Hove is compact enough to just say we’ll cover the entire area!

Provided things go the way we plan, and Brighton & Hove love us as much as we love them, we’ll inevitably expand into neighbouring areas in the future. So, if you’re unsure whether we’ll cover your address, just get in touch and we’ll let you know.

About Us

Cleaning Express started in 2015 with one goal in mind: to offer only the best cleaning services to London. Alongside this, we’ve always operated with our cleaning experts in mind, providing great working conditions and above-market pay. We know the benefits of investing in staff, so we’ve always made it one of our top priorities.

As well as good pay (we’re a Living Wage employer), we strive to offer excellent and continued training for our cleaning experts. After all, well-trained staff see the benefit of sticking with their employer, and we want our cleaning experts to feel happy and content with the work they do.

Along with domestic cleaning services, we offer office and retail cleaning as well as end-of-tenancy and one-off deep cleaning. While we have yet to launch these services in Brighton, they’ll soon follow provided the area likes what we do. We’re excited to bring our work ethic and cleaning services to Brighton & Hove, and we hope to establish a strong presence in the area.

What We Offer

We provide regular domestic cleaning services in Brighton & Hove. In short, this means Cleaning Express will come to your home to help with:

· Hoovering and mopping
· Dusting and cleaning surfaces
· Kitchen and bathroom cleaning
· Making beds, helping with laundry, etc.

These are just a small sample of the domestic cleaning services we offer. If you want something else, please get in touch to discuss it with us. We can provide a full list of our cleaning services as needed.

How to Book an Appointment

We’ve intentionally made our booking process as simple as possible. You can either call our local office during opening hours or fill out the contact form on our website. Once we have your information, we’ll get in touch to discuss your requirements in more detail.

About Us

Cleaning Express is a cleaning services company with an established presence in London. Since we started in 2015, we’ve made it our mission to invest in our employees. After all, professional and highly-trained staff are happier and take more pride in what they do.

We approach staff happiness from two primary angles. First, we’re proud to be a Living Wage employer – it’s our mission to attract and retain highly skilled cleaners by paying them a wage they’re happy to receive. In too many companies, cleaning staff are often overlooked in terms of how much they earn, and we’re proud to buck against this trend.

Second, we invest in high-quality training to ensure we exceed the expectations of our customers. Every cleaner we employ goes through an online training course to build upon any skills they already have. Consistency is key to offering a quality service, and we achieve this through rigorous training and high standards.

In short, it’s our mission to employ and train cleaners who are proud of what they do. We’re incredibly excited to bring this ethos to Birmingham and its surrounding areas, and we hope to establish a strong presence.

What We Offer

Cleaning Express will offer regular domestic cleaning services in Birmingham. This involves us coming to your home on a basis that suits your needs to do the following jobs:

  • Kitchen and bathroom cleaning
  • Hoovering and mopping
  • Dusting and cleaning surfaces
  • Making beds, changing linens, etc.

Of course, we offer plenty more domestic cleaning services. If you’d like to see a full list, please get in touch and we can discuss what’s covered in more detail.

How to Book an Appointment

Booking an appointment with Cleaning Express is super easy. You can either call us directly during office hours or fill out the contact form on our website. We’ll then be in touch to discuss your needs and availability before booking you in for an initial clean. Provided it all goes well, we can discuss a suitable regular time for your domestic cleaning.

We’re more than happy to answer any questions you may have about our cleaners and services. Everyone we employ is fully vetted, trained and insured, so you can be confident that we’ll send only the best cleaners to help around your home.

Are You Looking for a Cleaning Career?

One of the best parts of expanding into a new service area is connecting with people looking for a new job. So, if you live in one of the areas mentioned above and would be interested in working for Cleaning Express, head over to our cleaning jobs page.

It involves filling out a quick application form, and if we like what we see, we’ll be in touch to discuss the next steps. Cleaning Express offers great rates of pay, on-the-job development, extensive training, and much more. Sure, we might be biased, but we think Cleaning Express is a great company to work for!

Expanding our services to Birmingham is a big move, and we can’t wait to meet all our new customers and employees. Considering the journey we’ve been on since starting in 2015, setting up in a brand new city is confirmation that we’re doing something right!

And, of course, we can’t overlook our current staff and customers. Without you, this move wouldn’t be possible, so thanks for all your hard work and support over the years.

london living wage employer

Cleaning Express is delighted to announce that we are now an accredited Living Wage Employer. This means that every member of staff here at Cleaning Express will earn the Living Wage or higher moving forward.

What is the Living Wage?

The real Living Wage is higher than the government’s minimum, or National Living Wage, and is an independently calculated hourly rate of pay that is based on the actual cost of living. It is calculated each year and is announced by the Living Wage Foundation as part of Living Wage Week. It is currently £10.90 in the UK, with a higher rate of £11.95 for London, reflecting the higher costs of living in the capital.

Cleaning Express has joined over 12,000 other organisations, voluntarily choosing to pay the real Living Wage because we believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.

What this means for our staff

The Living Wage movement has benefited hundreds of thousands of families across the UK by enabling them to earn a wage that they can live on. It allows them to focus on a single job and have a single income they can rely on. This ensures that they can work hard, get paid for that hard work, and still have plenty of time during the week to enjoy their downtime.

What this means for our customers

Any customers of Cleaning Express can be safe in the knowledge that the cleaners cleaning their homes regularly are being paid correctly for their work. As well as any office staff you interact with at Cleaning Express.

Cleaning Express is committed to offering the Living Wage to all employees in the future, as well as great training opportunities and opportunities to grow within the business. Therefore, you can be rest assured that our cleaners are taking advantage of training courses and other amazing benefits that we offer while being paid the Living Wage or above. Our aim is to always offer the highest cleaning standards in London, and this is the next step in ensuring this is possible moving forward.

What this means for Cleaning Express

Cleaning Express learnt very early on that by taking care of the staff; the staff take care of our customers. This is the next step in ensuring our staff are cared for and looked after. It ensures the future growth of Cleaning Express is backed by everyone that works for us and has helped us grow thus far.

Cleaning Express is in a very exciting time of growth and expansion, but we have never lost our core values. Becoming a Living Wage employer ensures that these core values of rewarding hard work from great people will continue throughout the business as we grow. We are extremely proud of this commitment and what it means for our staff and customers.

Cleaning Express is really excited to announce that we’re expanding our area of operations. During the past several years, we’ve employed and trained more proven expert cleaners so that we could cover more areas, and we are now rolling out our award-winning cleaning services to even more areas!

Our professionally trained cleaners are really excited to meet our new customers, although you may have met them before. During our expansion, we have taken care to ensure we hire trustworthy people in the local area that we can train in the Cleaning Express way of cleaning. So, chances are, your new cleaner comes from your neighbourhood.

The new areas Cleaning Express cover

The new areas that Cleaning Express have expanded to include the following:


Of course, all of the areas that we still cover go unchanged. We are simply expanding our cleaning services into other areas. If you live in one of the areas above, you can now enjoy high-rated and award-winning cleaning services from the most professional cleaners in London.

Who we are

Cleaning Express has always invested heavily in our cleaners. When we started, we wanted to create an exceptional cleaning service that provides the best cleaning sessions for our customers. We knew that we needed to commit to our cleaners and invest in them.

To do this, we created an online cleaning course that delves deep into the art of cleaning a home or a business. This 26-video course ensures that all of our cleaners have an in-depth knowledge of the skills they’ll need daily. New cleaners then shadow more experienced cleaners until they are ready for their first customers.

We have always invested heavily in our cleaners, as we know that our customers have high standards, and we want to deliver cleaning services that match or surpass these cleaning standards. So, our cleaners are consistently offered further training, the London living wage and chances to progress with Cleaning Express. By doing this, we’ve been able to attract and teach the best cleaners in London, and this will continue with any cleaners that we hire during our expansions now and in the future.

Cleaning Express’ key cleaning services

Cleaning Express offer more cleaning services than most professional cleaning companies. We have added more and more cleaning services to our arsenal over the years to ensure we cater to all of our customers’ needs. Our cleaning services include:

Regular domestic cleaning
Office cleaning and other commercial services
End of tenancy cleaning
Carpet cleaning services
Deep cleans for domestic and commercial customers
and more.

We can clean any commercial property that you may need us to. From offices and shops to car showrooms and restaurants. We have a lot of experience cleaning schools, hospitals, churches and a great deal more. So, if you aren’t sure if Cleaning Express can clean your business, get in touch, and we’ll be happy to help.

Cleaning Express wins the Royal Greenwich Business Award for Workforce DevelopmentWe are delighted to announce that Cleaning Express has won the Royal Greenwich Business Award for Workforce Development. We would like to thank Royal Greenwich Borough Council and the main sponsor for the awards U+I for organising such an excellent event at the O2 Intercontinental. We’re also very thankful to East London Business Place and the sponsor of our category, London South East Colleges.

Winning this award means everything to us. Not just the management team at Cleaning Express but all of our head office staff and our cleaners. Everyone at Cleaning Express has worked extremely hard to provide our team with training courses, knowledge, skills and ensure that Cleaning Express is a safe, friendly and fun place to work for everyone. Each and every member of the Cleaning Express team plays a pivotal role in the progression of the team and the business, and we thank them so much for their hard work.

What are the Royal Greenwich Business Awards?

The Royal Greenwich Business Awards highlights and celebrates business excellence in Royal Greenwich. This year’s awards were held in association with the main sponsor U+I and the South East London Chamber of Commerce.

Royal Greenwich is home to 11,600 businesses that provide over 100,000 jobs for local people. In total, there were 12 categories and over 230 applicants for the awards this year. The applicants represent a diverse range of businesses and industries across the borough providing excellence to their customers and employees. So, it’s fair to say that we had some stiff competition in the Workforce Development category.

The Workforce Development Award

This award showcases excellent developments within the workforce of a company. When applying for consideration for this award, we had to provide detailed examples of Cleaning Express’s commitment to developing our team and offering more opportunities to local people.

During the application process, we detailed our commitment to our staff by showcasing our free online courses for our cleaning team. This 26-video course aims to help people seeking jobs in the cleaning industry become professional cleaners of the highest level.

We continued our application with our commitment to making Cleaning Express a safe, fun and exciting place to work for our teams. In the last year, we have improved Healthy and Safety training and achieved Health and Safety qualifications as a result. Noting that this has furthered the professionalism of our staff and opened up more internal job opportunities for those wanting to focus on health and safety.

Empowering our workers

We also showcased our ethos of empowering our teams, allowing them to get involved with company decisions. Decisions that directly affect their training, qualifications and day-to-day working habits. With our head office staff and cleaners helping make company decisions, we feel confident that Cleaning Express is moving in the right direction, one that benefits our customers and our staff.

Why did we enter?

Over the years, Cleaning Express has always been determined to provide the best cleaning services in London. And this meant that a focus on hiring the best people and providing the best training possible was extremely important. We knew that paying a fair wage, good communication from management, and creating opportunities for local people all played a big role in creating a cleaning community that we could be proud of.

We have created lots of opportunities in many boroughs of London and have introduced programmes to help a wide variety of people. Most recently, our programme to help Ukrainian refugees to adapt to life in London by offering sustainable jobs and allowing people to rely less on the Government’s help.

We have actively encouraged and helped our staff progress in all areas of the business, offering training and qualifications to help them further their careers within the industry. While providing opportunities for them to have their say on which qualifications were made available through Cleaning Express.

In short, we believed that Cleaning Express was an industry leader in workforce development, and that, despite the fierce competition within this award category, our ethos of progression may just be enough to win this award. And we are delighted to say that Cleaning Express is now the proud winner of the Workforce Development Award from the Royal Greenwich Business Awards 2022.

What the award means

For everyone at Cleaning Express, winning this award shows that the business is moving in the right direction. Our staff has worked extremely hard to encourage growth in everyone, and we have rewarded this behaviour by providing more and more opportunities, as well as a fun, friendly and exciting environment to all of our cleaners, head office and management staff.

Winning this award shows us that working with the Living Wage Foundation, improving our health and safety standards, and creating free online courses for our staff ensures that the company is growing in the right direction.

Cleaning Express is also dedicated to continuing this growth in all aspects of the company. We are continuing to hire Ukrainian refugees who have recently arrived in London, as well as, people already living in the local area. Providing them with full training and offering assistance on resources outside the company whenever needed.

Winning the Workforce Development Award means the world to us, but the growth of our team won’t stop here. We are as determined as ever to provide the best service to our customers as possible with highly-skilled, happy and healthy cleaners. We’re extremely proud of our staff for winning this award, and we will continue to invest in them as they have invested in us.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the Royal Greenwich Business Awards one final time for giving us the Workforce Development Award of 2022. We’d also like to thank all of the staff at Cleaning Express for their continued growth and development. And we’d like to thank our customers for providing the opportunity to help local people from their communities thrive and grow in a passionate and exciting team of exceptional people.

queen elizabethCleaning Express were very saddened to hear the news of Queen Elizabeth II passing yesterday afternoon. Our offices are a lot quieter than normal today, as is the whole of London and the rest of the UK. For many of us, the Queen is the only monarch we have ever known. For the last 70 years, Queen Elizabeth has been the heart of this nation and has held us together through our most trying times.

Today, we would like our cleaners, our head office staff and our customers to remember the Queen, what she represents to this country and the legacy that she leaves behind. Here are our favourite quotes from her. Many of which we’ve installed into the ethos of Cleaning Express throughout the years.

“Everyone is our neighbour, no matter what race, creed, or colour.”

The diversity of London and the United Kingdom as a whole is what makes this country such an exciting and beautiful place to live. Cleaning Express has cleaners and customers from across the world and from every background imaginable, and this is something we celebrate. After the war in Ukraine broke out, we were overwhelmed by thoughts and prayers from our customers as they know that many Cleaning Express employees were directly affected by the conflict, and their families are still being affected. To those customers, we say thank you.

“I can never wear beige because nobody will know who I am.”

The Queen’s bold fashion sense over the years made her an icon of the fashion world. Her beautifully bold outfits shone an elegant light on any room she walked into, as did her wonderful smile. As more and more video tributes for the Queen are being released today, we have realised that this boldness wasn’t just confined to her dress sense either. She had an excellent sense of humour that we’re sure we only ever caught glimpses of during public appearances. The Queen was just as bold, bright and beautiful as her outfits, and I think all of us can take something away from that.

“In times of doubt and anxiety, the attitudes people show in their daily lives, in their homes, and in their work, are of supreme importance.”

Mental health is something that millions of us battle with every day, and Cleaning Express is determined to help all of our staff cope with any mental health issues they have. Our cleaners also help our customers, and our customers often help our cleaners with their mental health too. Taking a few minutes to have a chat with someone that isn’t feeling themselves that day can really make a difference, and today, there are going to be many people that aren’t feeling themselves across the UK. So, today, have a conversation, listen, and console someone; it may just make someone’s day a little bit better.

“It’s worth remembering that it is often the small steps, not the giant leaps, that bring about the most lasting change.”

This wonderful quote from the Queen really fits the Cleaning Express ethos perfectly. It is as if she was speaking about how we have operated over the years. We’ve added many different cleaning services to our repertoire over the years to help our customers, and have made small changes to our practises and services to better suit our customer’s needs too. These small changes make big impacts and have greatly improved the service we provide our customers.

“When peace comes, remember it will be for us, the children of today, to make the world of tomorrow a better and happier place.”

As many of our staff have been affected by the ongoing war in Ukraine, we feel this quote from the Queen really embodies the conflict and the sacrifices being made. As well as climate change and many other world-changing events. It is up to us to make the changes that we want to see in this world. As a leading cleaning company in London, we are responsible for making big changes that our cleaners and customers benefit from.

Today is a day of mourning. The longest-reigning monarch in England has passed away. The streets of London are filled with sadness. The usually bustling city is quiet and forlorn. Yet, it is important that we celebrate this incredible woman’s life. A woman that has impacted billions of people’s lives around the world. A Queen that will go down in history as one of the greatest monarchs to ever reign over this amazing country of ours.

So, please remember the Queen today, and have a think about the impact that she has made in your life. And as we mourn in the Cleaning Express office, we’d like to share one final quote from the Queen to celebrate her amazing life and her wonderful sense of humour. She was once asked why she carried her purse with her while she was at home in Buckingham Palace. To which the Queen replied, “this house is very big, you know”.

ukrainian refugee jobs london

Cleaning Express would like to welcome all Ukrainian refugees to London. The Cleaning Express team is made up of many people from different countries around the world, including Ukraine, so we’d like to welcome you to the city that welcomed us so warmly and openly. We hope you find London just as welcoming as we did, and we would like to offer you support while you are here. If you decide to work while in London, please get in touch with Cleaning Express as soon as possible. We’re always looking for hardworking, passionate cleaners. Here’s what Cleaning Express can provide for all Ukrainian refugees in London if they choose to work with us.

Working for Cleaning Express

Working for Cleaning Express means you are part of our family. A dream team of cleaners that work hard for our customers and provide cleaning services that no other cleaning company in London provides. The Cleaning Express team doesn’t shy away from hard work and love to find people who are passionate and hardworking, just like us. If you choose to work for Cleaning Express while you’re in London, here’s what you can expect.

Full training provided

Whether you have cleaning experience or not, we can provide full training with the cleaning equipment we use. Our cleaners clean to a higher standard than any other cleaners in the country, so we ensure we provide full training so that you can clean the Cleaning Express way. We take pride in our cleaning work because it offers Londoners clean and safe environments to work and live in all over the city.

Good wages

All of our cleaning staff receive the London Living Wage of £13.15/hour or higher. We believe that our cleaners should receive a good wage for their efforts. We encourage our cleaners to work hard, and so we pay them well. Many cleaners across the city have to work incredibly hard to earn a good wage; some cleaners even have two or three jobs just to get by. However, the Cleaning Express team can focus on their jobs and do a brilliant job for our customers.

We also offer bonuses to our cleaners when they receive five-star feedback from our customers and have many other perks that make Cleaning Express one of the best cleaning companies in London for cleaners and customers.

Over 25 cleaners from Ukraine recruited so far

As at the end of October 2022, we now have over 25 active regular cleaners, who had to flee Ukraine after the start of the war. The cleaners work part-time or full-time and work on both domestic and commercial sites.

Bi-lingual staff

We know escaping war in Ukraine and moving to a new country is quite scary, particularly at this troubling time for your own country. We want to let any Ukrainian refugees know that many of the people within the Cleaning Express team are bi-lingual. Many of us speak Ukrainian and Russian as well as many other languages. So, if you feel a language barrier could hold you back, it won’t. We can provide all of your training in your native language if needed and offer any other support you need after your training is complete. We want you to feel at home at Cleaning Express and in London, so anything we can do to help, just let us know.

If you’re a Ukrainian refugee in London looking for work and a lovely community, get in touch with Cleaning Express. We have positions open for you right now, full training can be provided and any support you need going forward. Cleaning Express is here to help you because many of us were once you. Granted, the situations that bought us to London were very different, but we have faced similar challenges in London and are ready to help and support you while you earn a good wage and learn some valuable skills that you can take anywhere in the world.

Support Ukraine


The conflict in Ukraine is escalating, putting millions of lives of adults and children in extreme danger. Many of our cleaners and head office staff have families in Ukraine, and we know that many of our customers do as well. Our prayers and thoughts go out to anyone and everyone who is affected by the war in Ukraine. Our hearts are with you in this worrying, scary time.

Innocent people from all walks of life are losing their homes and their lives in Ukraine at the moment. Families are being separated, and no one knows for sure whether they will see their loved ones again. Innocent people are trapped in the middle of a war as they try and escape to safety. Risking their lives and their children’s lives as they try and get out of Ukraine, away from bombs and bullets, and they need all the support and help that we can provide.

ukrainian warOur staff at Cleaning Express have been impacted by the war in Ukraine from the very beginning. There are ties to Ukraine on all levels of this cleaning company. Our cleaners, customer service staff, and management have friends and family that this troubling conflict has affected. We know that many of our cleaning customers are in the same position. The innocent people fleeing their homes need our support and help.


We have invested specialised training for Ukrainian refugees to help them provided professional bespoke cleaning training in their own language since the start of the war. We have now recruited over 20 people working for our domestic and commercial customers.


Cleaning Express has now organised two deliveries of essential items for Ukrainian refugees. One delivery has been sent to Ukraine and the other one sent to Lithuania. Many items have been donated by the company in the first couple of weeks of the war and many more essentials have been given by management, office staff and friends.

war in ukraine aid ukraine refugees helping ukrainian refugees help ukraine refugees


Ukraine Emergency Appeal

We can all help with a donation for the Ukrainian residents who are fighting for their lives. There is a GoFundMe page called Help Ukraine Emergency Appeal that is providing medical and food packs to the Ukrainian people as we speak. Still, they need more donations to help with the influx of people that desperately need this resource.

Come Back Alive

Come Back Alive is supporting the Ukrainian armed forces as they go to war. With this amazing charity’s support, the troops will stand a far better chance of getting home safely to their families and friends. Come Back Alive does not use funds to buy weaponry. Their mission is purely to supply technology, training, and ammunition to help save the lives of Ukrainians and help our soldiers defend Ukraine.

Approved volunteer organisations

The Ukrainian government has set up a page on its website that provides links to all volunteer organisations that are helping support the people of Ukraine at this very troubling time. Just a few pounds to any of these charities can make a massive difference. It can provide a warm meal and clothing to a family who was forced to leave their home without any possessions.–organizacii.html


Ukrainian conflict


We understand you may not have money to give to help the people of Ukraine. However, there is still something you can do. The people of Ukraine need clothes, household necessities, medical supplies and food. You can donate all of this to charities in Ukraine. There are pop up centres around London right now that are calling out for these supplies. If you don’t have anything to give, give your time. Volunteer at one of these pop-up charity centres and help to get these vital supplies to people who need them most.

Ukrainian cleaners and office staff impacted by the war in Ukraine

The war in Ukraine has affected us deeply at Cleaning Express, and our prayers, hearts, and minds are with our staff and customers who have also been affected. We had a number of cleaners from Ukraine and management staff have Ukrainian roots. Since Cleaning Express began, we have seen how amazing and wonderful the people of London are, and we know Ukraine’s call for help won’t go unanswered by the incredible people of this city!

We welcome Ukrainian refugees in London

We hope you find London just as welcoming, and we would like to offer you support while you are here. If you decide to work while in London, please get in touch with Cleaning Express as soon as possible. We’re always looking for hardworking, passionate cleaners. As of the 1st of October 2022 we have employed over 25 staff, who had to flee Ukraine since the war started. We are proud of our Ukrainian cleaning staff, who have been so resilient and hard-working.

safe reopening of retail shops


We know that all retail spaces and restaurants are eager to open following lockdown. Lockdown has been a trying time for us all, but for restaurants and retail spaces, it has been an incredibly challenging time. The safe reopening of your business will mean that your life and livelihood can slowly start to get back to normal. However, when will you be able to safely open your shop or restaurant again? And how can you prepare for this reopening to be as safe as possible? Well, today, Cleaning Express is exploring the safe reopening of retail spaces and restaurants and how they can prepare to reopen after lockdown restrictions have been lifted.

When will non-essential shops be reopening?

The current government roadmap states that shops that are not essential could be opening their doors no earlier than 12th April. This is Step 2 of the Roadmap. This includes hairdressers, nail salons, pubs (although customers will have to eat and drink outside) and many other outdoor attractions. 12th April should be a date on every shop-owners calendar to look forward to. However, to safely reopen on this date, there are some very important things to consider that we will talk about below.

When will restaurants be reopening?

For restaurants, the restrictions are expected to be lifted no earlier than 17th May. If everything goes according to plan at this time, restaurants, hotels, and other indoor hospitality venues could open their doors with restrictions in place. These restrictions are laid out in the Covid-Secure guidelines. They must not cater to groups larger than the legal limit, for example. We know that restaurants and retail spaces are raring to open their doors and welcome their customers back. But what can you do to ensure that your space is safe for your customers?

How to prepare to reopen a restaurant or retail space

To safely reopen a restaurant or retail space after lockdown restrictions have been lifted, cleaning is crucial. You must ensure that your restaurant or shop is completely clean and safe. While we are sure that your shop is dust-free and your shelves look great, are you confident that your shop or restaurant is free of bacteria? If you aren’t, Cleaning Express has retail cleaning services, as well as restaurant cleaning that can help ensure that your retail space is safe and ready to reopen for your customers when the government gives you the green light.

As schools open after lockdown, students and teachers will need to make changes to their daily lives to ensure that they remain safe as they are learning and teaching. One of the best ways for schools to support teachers and students is to ensure that the school is clean throughout to minimise the risk of anyone coming into contact with covid-19. Of course, new hygiene rules and regulations must be put in place too. Still, antiviral disinfection cleaning should become a standard in all schools to ensure a safe reopening after Covid-19.

How long does COVID-19 last on surfaces?

As the knowledge of covid-19 begins to grow, so does the understanding of how long the virus remains on certain surfaces. As you know, Covid is passed from person to person in much the same way as the common cold. It can be passed when coughing and sneezing, which is why social distancing is so crucial in schools at this time. However, larger droplets can fall to the ground or on to nearby surfaces when we cough or sneeze.

Once these droplets land, the virus can live on surfaces for a few days. However, the survival of Covid depends on the material that it lands on, for example:

Metal objects (door handles, for example): five days
Wood (tables, chairs and floors): four days
Plastics (learning equipment and whiteboards): two to three days
Paper: research varies from a few hours to five days.

Aluminium and copper seem to be the best materials for killing Covid. In these cases, the virus can last between two and four hours. Of course, this hardly helps matters, unless your school and everything in it is made with aluminium and copper. So, what can you do to stop the spread of Covid in your school? Well, as we said above, new hygiene and cleaning standards must be put in place. So, let’s find out about the school cleaning services that Cleaning Express offers to schools across London and how they can help you take control of Covid in your school.

School Cleaning Services

Cleaning Express has been offering its cleaning services for many years. Of course, since Covid-19 hit London, our school cleaning services has been more important than ever. We know that having a fresh and clean environment to learn and teach in has always been important, but it’s never been more important than now.

Cleaning Express cleans educational bodies and schools of all sizes. We can provide school cleaning to a very high standard in pre-schools, primary schools, secondary schools, universities, colleges and more. Please also visit our university cleaning page.  All of the Cleaning Express cleaners that enter any educational cleaning site are all DBS-checked and fully trained in all of the cleaning services that a school will need. This ensures that your students are safe and can learn in an environment that is safe for them. Our regular school cleaning services are perfect for keeping your school clean for the students and the teachers. However, we understand that in the school system’s fight against Covid-19, stronger cleaning services are required. That is where our antiviral disinfection cleaning services come in to play to ensure safe reopening of schools after Covid-19. impact of covid-19 school cleaning services

Antiviral Disinfection Cleaning Services In Schools

Cleaning Express’ antiviral disinfection cleaning services are the best way to ensure that your school is free from any viruses, not just Covid. Our antiviral cleaning services are offered under our deep cleaning services umbrella, which we also offer to schools. After a long break, like the one lockdown has caused, your school may really benefit from a deep clean. However, it will also massively benefit from our antiviral cleaning services. We use a specialised disinfectant that remains on surfaces for 60 minutes to kill the virus. We then add a protective layer to all surfaces that is completely invisible that will prevent the virus from staying on any surfaces in your school.

To fight Covid in your school, you need the right cleaning regime and proper hygiene procedures too. Without these, Covid-19 can easily spread throughout your school. If you’d like more information about Cleaning Express’ Coronavirus cleaning services for schools in London, please get in touch. Our contact centre is always here to answer any cleaning questions and provide you with a survey time or send us a message via website or Facebook. Once the survey has been completed, our cleaners will swing into action and ensure that your school is ready to reopen and that your students and teachers will be safe while they learn and teach.
