I'm Jo Brander and after working constantly for over 20 years while bringing up two girls, I've recently been blessed with three grandchildren. Both my daughters are now busy working Mums and need lots of my help with running the house, collecting babies from nursery, shopping, cooking and washing. I realised that so many people are now in similar situations and that I could make a difference working for myself doing the essential things that busy Mums and Dads just don't have time for. Starting from scratch in 2013, I now have a small number of regular clients and have grown steadily with word of mouth recommendations.
Have a look around my website and see if I can help you with your daily tasks. I'm happy to provide genuine reliable references, and discretion is assured at all times
Here at Jo's Helping Hands we pride ourselves by using eco friendly cleaning systems wherever possible. Steam cleaning and microfibre cloths are used as standard.
A steam cleaner works by using ordinary tap water to produce superheated dry steam. The temperature and power of this dry steam means that almost any area can be cleaned and sanitised and brought back to its original condition with minimal time and effort.
Our steam cleaners will cut through any dirt, grime, grease and chemical film to give amazing cleaning results. All bacteria is killed and all surfaces are left spotlessly clean and dry.
Microfibre products leave surfaces free of any foreign material such as lint and cotton fibers usually left behind by traditional cotton rags. We also love them because they are streak free. We use a very tightly woven cloth for glass and mirrors with just tap water and the results are amazing.
You won’t believe how clean your glass, tiles and mirrors get after a few uses as you remove years of cleaning solution build up.
Steam cleaners are proven to kill 98% of dust mites and neutralise their allergens so using them can really help asthma and allergy sufferers.
Mattresses and upholstery are where dust mites live and breed.
These can be cleaned in seconds killing all dust mites and leaving them instantly dry..
Allergy and asthma sufferers will also benefit from the steam using only ordinary tap water and therefore leaving no chemical residue, which can trigger an allergic reaction.
We're also great lovers of eco-friendly cleaning methods that you may not have heard of that feature everyday things like:

These are genuine quotes from our clients and their references are available on request.
"Jo has been cleaning for me for around 2 months now ; weekly, 2 hours a week. The arrangement is that Jo texts me around the beginning of the week asking what day suits us both for cleaning (this flexible arrangement works well for me) and what I want her to focus on – for example last week Jo did my windows and this week she’s going to do some weeding in the garden.
On top of this, she always does the kitchen and hoovering as standard weekly jobs.
I have to say that I always notice the impact of Jo coming in, and I think you’d struggle to find anyone else who works harder in two hours than Jo.
I find her totally trustworthy (it’s a big thing for us to trust her with her own key) and would gladly recommend her cleaning services"

"I have known Jo for over 30 years and she now comes to my house once a week and hoovers, polishes, cleans the kitchen and bathroom, and sorts out the garden. She is reliable and trustworthy and has made my life so much easier"
Jane in Earlsdon, Coventry
"Jo has quickly become a godsend in managing our never ending battle against those household tasks that keep on being put to the bottom of the pile. She does 2 hours a week on the things that we just don't have time to keep on top of. She is a doer who isn't fazed by working around our clutter and I don't think our house has ever been cleaner!"
Sian in Earlsdon, Coventry
"So happy I chose Jo's Helping Hands to help me with keeping my house and garden in shape following my recent disabilities. Jo is such a hard worker - punctual and conscientious, discrete and meticulous, head down and on with the job every time, always a smile and happy in her work, pleased to do the little extras at a moments notice. So pleased that I did her website for free - Highly recommended!"
