Home cleaning service Molly Maid is gearing up for a return to business in Horsham following the easing of lockdown.
Horsham franchise owner Hayley Emmett, who runs a team of 21 employees, said: “It feels great to be one of the first businesses getting back to work.
“The response from our customers has been phenomenal and our employees are glad to be back working.”
Although cleaning services provided in customers’ homes were never required to cease operating during the lockdown, Molly Maid decided it was the right thing to do to keep employees and customers safe.
Hayley said: “It was a really tough decision to stop providing our home cleaning services – especially to our older and vulnerable customers. Most can’t properly clean their home themselves so it’s an issue of health and safety.
“But it is also about the health and safety of our employees”. She added: “If we couldn’t safely bring our employees back to work and safely provide our cleaning services to customers, then we would not be able to resume cleaning”.
The company has introduced several changes as part of ‘HomeSafe’ procedures including daily health checks of their teams following NHS guidelines, implementing social distancing measures between teams, customers and within customers’ homes, along with the use of a sanitising cleaner.
Hayley added: “It’s important that local businesses like ours help our community get back on its feet.”
