In light of the recent government guidelines, we would like to reassure you, that your new and existing bookings are still safe to go ahead. Previously, the government advised that tradespeople working in your home were exempt from the 'rule of six' and thus the gatherings limits imposed. These rules still apply to all 3 tiers.
For added peace of mind, we would like to remind you that all cleaners on the Helpling platform have been offered specialist training on how to be Covid-19 prepared. This training provides guidance on how to communicate with customers safely, the importance of adhering to social distancing and the benefits of wearing PPE. Cleaners that have completed this training display a Covid-19 prepared badge in their profile.

If you don’t have a tissue to hand, cough or sneeze into the crook of your arm. If you do have a tissue, dispose of it directly after use. Containing your coughs and sneezes this way, rather than in your hands, prevents others from becoming infected.
