Nude cleaners wanted as new company set to launch in West Sussex
A brand-new West Sussex cleaning company is looking for cleaning staff who are comfortable working in their own skin - exclusively.
Lee Morgan is the co-owner of Naked-Cleaners and has described the interest shown to the Chichester company as 'overwhelmingly positive'.
The service will cover two areas: Naked cleaning for leisure aimed at people looking for company and helping hands around the house, and the other, which Lee emphasised has a positive impact, is the 'holistic and healing' element.
Cleaners can do so entirely naked, partially clothed and even in costume. The latter is said to benefit people living with dementia by helping to trigger positive memories.
The company is also running rigorous DBS checks on prospective cleaners and clients and a security service is provided to staff.
A naturist himself, Lee speaks highly of the practise: "I live on my own so I am able to enjoy be a naturist in my own residency. I obviously respect people's boundaries and put clothes if people come over but I enjoy going to naturist resorts."
Lee added: "It's about embracing what I have and not worrying about what I don't have."
"It does have neurological benefits and there are a lot of misconceptions - we have already turned people down and turned people away. It's understanding this this is a cleaning service first and foremost but some people see the word 'naked' and it takes them down a different road,
"Our aim is to be able to provide a positive and vibrant experience. We are just trying to put a smile on people's faces."
After announcing the company's launch date of March 21 on social media, Lee said the feedback was 'overwhelmingly positive'.
"We were inundated with emails and messages from people who already want to get involved.
"Social distancing measures have taken their toll and the impact to people's mental stress levels still need to be recognised."
Not only has the uptake of clients been quick, demand is also high from people looking to apply for a job.
"We've had people of all age ranges apply for a job, the youngest being 21 and one woman in her 60s. People are also keen to hire plus-sized women, they are kind of in demand at the moment because people want to see real women, not billboard women.
"It's their own confidence that brings them to want to do something like this - it is great for body positivity too."
