What we do

You contact us and I personally come for an initial home visit; to establish your exact needs.

We “find” a hard working, reliable and honest cleaner, with skills appropriate to your requirements (eg will ironing be needed?)

We vet and trial the cleaner and ensure they have a valid insurance plan.

Once we are happy, I introduce them to you and your home, training them to your specific plan. You will be given the cleaners contact information once you are happy to keep them and they will be given the Contract For Services.

You will provide all cleaning products and equipment and provide a safe working environment for the cleaner. You will pay the cleaner each visit at a minimum of £10ph. In return, the cleaner will provide labour for the duration of your clean, along with Public Liability Insurance.

We will keep in direct contact with yourself and the cleaner to ensure high standards are met, along with regular home visits and holiday/sick cover, at your request. An alternative cleaner can be recommended, should you so wish. We charge a Management fee for the Contract For Services, which is £5ph, pro-rated and payable a month in advance (eg: if you have a regular 2hr weekly clean, my fee would be £43.33 pcm).

Read what our clients are saying…

For almost two decades, we have been steaming shirts, hoovering hallways, shining sideboards and bleaching bathrooms; leaving homes sparkling clean with a full housekeeping experience .. But don’t take my word for it, check out our glowing reviews from clients, many of which are still with us after 16 years…

We have used take a break on loads of occasions, always on time, superb cleaning, Tina always keeps us in the loop and very reliable. Great service
Paul Dyer
Tina runs Take a Break very efficiently. Her staff are delightful. We have had the same cleaners for many years. If they are absent (very rarely) Tina will cover. Cannot recommend this company highly enough. We have had cleaning firms in the past that have been more trouble than they are worth. Take a Break is the complete opposite!
Roy Joyce
I've been using Take a Break to clean my home since 2008. Tina and her team have always done a great job, hence why we've been working together for so long. I'd happily recommend Tina and the Take a Break team.
Alison Lawrence
Tina, Jo and the team are always on time and do a great job. Been absolutely great since we started using them a couple of years ago, never any problems or issues, very happy to recommend them to anyone
