All the team here at The Daily Maid wish them god-speed and hope that they enjoy, what really is, an opportunity of a lifetime. The Daily Maid team are planning a number of fundraising events for 2011 and will keep you posted as we come up with more crazy ideas.


About Claire House:
Located in Bebington on the Wirral, Claire House is a bright, vibrant place of hope. In addition to caring for our children and young adults, we also focus on the needs of the whole family, providing bereavement and other support for as long as it is needed. With no guaranteed government funding we need to raise in excess of £2.5 million each year to maintain our present levels of service.

Our specialist nursing team also work in the community through our ‘Hospice to Home’ programme which offers paediatric palliative care in the family home. With a hospice to home service also operating from our Liverpool office we are now reaching more families than in previous years and hope to see this grow in other areas too.

Wirral Cleaner the Daily Maid asks “How clean is Your House?

14th September, 2010


Whether you are old or young, male or female, own your home or currently renting, we all love it when Kim and Aggie get stuck in and turn a stinking mess of a home into a shiny new penny. Channel 4 is the home of the popular reality cleaning show – How Clean is Your House? and here at Wirral Cleaner we understand that everyone has times when they worry about someone coming into their home when it is not looking its best.


At The Daily Maid we have “seen it all”, and nothing surprises us anymore when we go to meet a new customer. Sometimes people tell us how nervous they are when we organise our first visit to your home with Jan and her team. We take this concern seriously and as a family business we look to make the process of inviting someone into your home for the first time as relaxing and as informal as possible.


Jan and her team all enjoy meeting new people and understanding our customer’s lifestyle and cleaning needs. Each customer has a story to tell and needs a service suited to their individual needs. We are specialist domestic cleaners and have many years experience of showing our customers homes in the best light.


Kim and Aggie have tons of cleaning tips at their finger tips, and at The Daily Maid we are no different. We have cleaned, scrubbed and polished many different types of spills and stains, and many of our customers love to find out the tricks of the cleaning trade from us. At The Daily Maid our advice is free and each new customer provides us with a new cleaning challenge, something I’m sure Kim and Aggie are more than used to.

    Choosing a Good Wirral Domestic Cleaner

    17th April, 2010


    Finding a good Wirral domestic cleaner is always a challenge as there are lots of factors that you may want to consider when making your choice. Some of the most important factors are going to be experience, reliability, cost and everyone wants the peace of mind provided by a trustworthy cleaner.


    When it comes to experience you may want to be asking how long the company has been established, how did they gain cleaning experience and how they train their staff.


    Reliability is important because you need your cleaner to fit in with your life and your lifestyle. A good Wirral domestic cleaner will take time to understand how they can fit in with your life and flexible to meet your needs as a busy homeowner. They will be punctual and always advise you in advance if cleaning times needs to be changed.


    Cost is factor which everyone considers in all aspects of daily life, but what is important is to make sure that you get value for money when choosing a Wirral domestic cleaner. Going with the cheapest cleaner is unlikely to provide with the most comprehensive and cost effective service.


    Peace of mind in a new cleaner has been rated the number 1 factor when choosing a new cleaner. You should always ask for references, check how long the business has been established, inquire how they have built their business up – is it through word of mouth, because that is one of the best ways to spot a good trustworthy cleaner.


    At the Daily Maid we live by these guidelines every day and we are proud to be one of the leading Wirral domestic cleaning companies.

    Wirral Cleaning Company talks Spring Cleaning

    10th April, 2010


    Spring Cleaning is the period in spring time set aside for cleaning your home, normally applied in climates with a cold winter. Spring cleaning refers to the annual tradition of cleaning your home from top to bottom which normally takes place in the first warm days of the year typically in spring, hence the name.


    It is thought that the origins of ‘spring cleaning’ date back to the Iranian Norouz, or the Persian new year, which falls on the first day of spring. Even today Iranians still practice “khooneh tekouni” which literally means “shaking the house” normally just before the new year. Everything in the house gets thoroughly cleaned, from the curtains to the furniture.


    At the Daily Maid we understand that when the sun comes out it is time to dust away those winter cobwebs, clean the windows and make ready for our glorious british summer time.


    As an established wirral cleaning company we will clean your home top to bottom, scouring all those dark areas where dirt and clutter can build up over the cold winter months. Spring is the time to start a fresh and what better way to do so that with a Spring Clean from the Daily Maid.
