If you must cancel your appointments, we respectfully request 48 hours’ notice. Let us know before 24hr in advance to avoid our $120.00 cancellation fee. Refusal of letting our staff in on the day of service will result in full payment. 

Staff– Our cleaning teams typically consist of two or more members, depending on the job’s size. Your home or facility is assigned a team leader for consistency. While we strive to maintain the same team leader for your home, we cannot guarantee it due to factors such as illness, promotions, vacations, etc. These circumstances may lead to changes in the team or the individuals within the team.

Price changes– The price for your recurring service is based on time between cleanings.  Rescheduling your cleaning can result in the cost of your service being less than, more than or the same as your last cleaning. This could also affect your slot with your schedule or lose your preferred cleaning staff. We understand some things are out of our control. Keep in mind that our professional cleaners are paid based on the schedule they work daily; last-minute cancellations equals less income for the teams. Frequent cancellations may result in losing your space. We appreciate your understanding. 

Electricity and Water Notice: We cannot work effectively in a house or office without electricity or running water. Please ensure that your home or office – especially if it is empty and in the middle of being sold/bought/turned over – will have electricity and running water on the day of service. Late Cancellation/Rescheduling fees may apply if we need to make last-minute schedule changes due to lack of electricity or water. 

Getting Ready for the Cleaning– Please don’t “clean†before we arrive, but do “pick up†as much as possible; for example, clearing the floors of clothing and toys, clearing surfaces of small items such as pens, coins, important documents, etc. Please don’t worry about countertop appliances and small pieces of furniture – we clean and move those as we go. This type of pick-up will allow us to focus more on detail and quality for you.

The Setting– The ideal cleaning situation is when no one is present. Since that is not always possible, please eliminate as many distractions as possible so we can work uninterrupted. Try to schedule your cleaning on a day when there will be fewer people at home or office. Please secure pets and keep children in another area as we are working with equipment and products that may not be safe for children. 

Trash Disposal- We require that any collected trash has a garbage bin we can put the trash in as we cannot take trash with us.
