We are open for business and our services are continuing to run but with some changes to ensure the health and safety of all our cleaners and clients during the outbreak.
The guidance issued by the government was updated on 02/05, which now further clarifies that domestic cleaners can continue to carry out work in people's homes, provided that the worker has no coronavirus symptoms as well as continuing to follow all guidance on excellent hygiene and maintaining a two metre distance from household occupants as far as possible.
The government also published further specific guidance on 11/05 for tradespeople (including cleaners) for carrying out work inside people's homes here.
Specific Scottish guidance can be found on gov.scot/coronavirus

We want to inform you of the actions we are taking as a business to protect our cleaners and our clients as far as possible during the COVID-19 outbreak. You will, of course, know the government have ordered people to stay at home wherever possible but with a few exceptions. On the other hand, we don't need to point out that a clean house is even more essential during these times.
Cleaning is one of the few exceptions for entering peoples homes; it is incredibly important that cleaners respect Government guidelines and clients' wishes when they are entering a property.
These are based on the latest guidelines from Public Health England, Health Protection Scotland and the NHS.
