New survey of house cleaners reveals cleanest and most respectful nations

A survey of over 3,000 house cleaners shows which nationalities are considered to be the cleanest and most respectful. The survey also reveals our cleaning habits. The British were voted the cleanest and most respectful with Americans coming second.
LONDON - Jan. 30, 2020 - PRLog -- CA new survey of over 3,000 London-based independent cleaners reveals attitudes towards home cleaning and cultural differences. Cleaners were asked to vote on the most respectful, least respectful and cleanest nations as well answer questions on the cleaning habits of customers.

Overall, 98% of cleaners feel valued by their clients and 85% believe that that their customers are generally clean and tidy. However, according to respondents, 56% of householders do very little or no cleaning between scheduled sessions.

The British are regarded as the most respectful and cleanest customers with Americans coming second. Clients of Indian heritage fared worst in the survey.

Ana Andres, co-founder of TidyChoice who commissioned the survey commented on the main findings:

"The survey indicates that there are cultural differences in attitudes towards cleaning so it makes sense to hire a cleaner from a similar background. In practice, we often see customers choose cleaners from the same country.

Notwithstanding some partisan voting, we are really surprised by the number of votes British clients received for both respectfulness and cleanliness. We have such a diverse range of customers and cleaners that we expected the voting to be much more evenly spread.

The survey also gives insights into our worst cleaning habits. The biggest complaints from cleaners are leaving dishes in the sink and leaving dirty clothing lying around on the floor."

  • British voted tidiest (54% total votes) and the most respectful (67% of total votes)
