LifeX is your home. Housekeeping come regularly, but can't do it all by themselves. We expect members to keep their home tidy and clean to ensure the best co-living experience for all.

Cleaning Services Take Place Twice Weekly*

Hours are based on occupancy and sqm, and are distributed as follows:

  • shared spaces are cleaned once a week

  • private rooms (including ensuite bathrooms) are cleaned once a week

  • shared bathrooms are cleaned twice a week.

Please always leave your room door slightly ajar on the private room cleaning day so that our cleaners can know that they are allowed to enter and clean the room. Otherwise, they will not enter and will not clean your room. Please ensure your room is not too messy as the cleaners won’t be able to clean the room properly in this case.

Note: cleaners will follow the tasks according to the LifeX cleaning schedule only. Cleaners’ hours are fixed and are not expected to clean up dirty dishes or after members’ parties.

*Cleaning Services Subject to Changes

Our cleaning schedule is based on the sqm of the home and also the level of occupancy. So if the property is not fully occupied, our cleaning schedule will be altered to meet these cleaning requirements (ie. Cleaning once a week, or less hours per visit). The occupancy is checked consistently and we will do our best to adjust the schedule as soon as possible according to any changes. Extreme changes such as cleaning 2 times per week down to 1 time per week will be communicated.

Our cleaning services are also generally subject to changes depending on the availability of our cleaners. In the event of a cancellation due to sickness reasons, LifeX will arrange for a replacement service as available and convenient. Any change will be communicated accordingly.

No Cleaning on Public Holidays

During public holidays such as Easter, Christmas, and New Year, LifeX staff (including cleaners) will not be working. Therefore there will be no cleaning on these days and a new cleaning schedule will be communicated accordingly.

Cleaning services set the baseline of cleanliness in the apartment

As a member you should always clean up after yourself when using the kitchen for cooking, using the bathroom, etc. Remember, you are sharing the house with other individuals, so make sure to keep it a respectable, clean and cozy home. 🙂 Also, don't leave dirty dishes in the sink or in any shared space. Cleaners come to clean the apartment - not to wash dishes 😉

🛏️ Berendsen bed sheets cleaning [Only relevant for Copenhagen]:

A slightly different service is provided only in Copenhagen when it comes to bedsheet cleaning, aka linen change.

Every second Thursday/Friday (we will notify you via the LifeX app a day before), you need to remove bed sheets, pillow and duvet covers, along with your towel, and put them all in the red and blue Berendsen laundry bag that is placed by the front door. This needs to be done before 10am on the linen change day. Housekeeping will take care of the rest so you will have a freshly made bed and towel to come home to.

Not bad right? 😉

Please note: The Berendsen service is ONLY for Berendsen products. If you put other personal items in the Berendsen bag, they will be thrown out. If you want a personal laundry service, check out Washa here.
