Lightening the load of the working parent with Laundryheap

As a work from home mum, I am always looking for ways to make the work/life balance that little bit easier to manage. Trying to juggle deadlines, childcare and housework is no easy feat and I know I'm far from alone in trying to make it work as studies show that more UK mothers than ever before  are now fact a whopping 75.6% of mums across the country are now trying to meet the demands of their job role alongside the demands of raising a family. Unfortunately this doesn't mean that the delegation of household chores and parenting-related tasks are being more evenly split between families, as studies show that Mums are still carrying the bulk of the workload within the home.

Mental health research shows us that trying to be all things to all people is a recipe for disaster and soon leads to burn out, so in the last couple of years I've been looking for ways to delegate tasks within the home to lighten my load. I home educate my children by choice so this takes up a huge portion of my non-work time, meaning that I'm left with little time for household chores...and with 5 people at home, laundry is the chore that takes up the most time! 

One service I've come across is Laundryheap - a company who promise to deliver the quickest, easiest to use and most reliable laundry service available. They will collect your laundry from your home, clean it as required and then return it to your doorstep - they can often complete services in as little as 24 hours, with 98.4% of standard laundry and dry cleaning delivered next day and plenty of weekend slots available making it ideal for the demands of a hectic family lifestyle. Even if laundry services aren't something you need to use often, just having the option of arranging a last minute collection when things are particularly stressful is helpful in itself. 

So how does it work? Laundryheap make the service incredibly user friendly, all you need to do is arrange a collection at a suitable time for you using either the website or the handy mobile app, then you just need to pack your laundry in a single disposable bag ready for collection. There's no need to count or weigh your items!

The Laundryheap driver will then collect your bag within your agreed collection slot (driver tracking is available within the app) and transfer your items to a reusable Laundryheap bag which you can keep and use next time. 

Your goods are then transferred to your local partner cleaning facility and you will receive regular updates throughout the process, before then returning your items to you clean and fresh at your agreed time - you can even reschedule this time slot with the click of a button if your plans change.

Laundryheap pride themselves on delivering a high quality and efficient service which is not only convenient but also environmentally friendly too, using zero-emission delivery vehicles and ensuring the most efficient water use possible. 

As well as offering standard laundry services, they also offer dry cleaning, duvet and bulky item services and ironing as well.  To find out more about Laundryheap's services or book a collection, just visit
