Tidy Up Clutter like Laundry, Dishes, and Items on the Floor 

The less clutter there is in your home, the easier it is for our cleaners to complete their work. From picking up laundry on the floor, to moving clutter off of your counter to wipe it clean, every extra task takes time away from cleaning your home. 

For help with tidying up between cleanings, our Trash & Tidy Service is perfect for you! This is the time when we take care of the clutter and chores including taking out all trash, washing dishes, folding a load of laundry, making beds, and tidying up. And this service is available daily, weekly, and bi-weekly, depending on what you need.

Manage Your Pets

Your furry friends are a great source of joy and companionship. But they can also create a mess that makes it difficult for our cleaners to provide the best possible service. Also, barking or aggressive dogs would make any visitor in your home feel uneasy. We are happy to work around your pets, but if they are aggressive, consider securing them comfortably and safely. Also, it’s a good idea to clean up any accidents from your pets as soon as possible. Do this most importantly for health reasons, but for sure before your cleaning technicians arrive. Let us know of any extra sanitizing that needs to be done.

Keep Us in the Loop

Keep your cleaners informed of any issues or quirks in your home that they should be aware of. This includes faulty or broken items, places you want them to avoid, and any other maintenance issues that may affect the cleaning process. Communicating with your cleaners ensures the safety of their team and that your home is cared for in the best possible way.

Let Us Know Your Expectations

It’s important to let your cleaners know your expectations before they begin cleaning. This includes any specific requests or areas of focus that you want them to pay attention to. Your cleaners will provide an estimate up front and lay out all that they do during their cleaning. You can also view our checklists to ensure that your expectations are being met. If you see something that was missed, our guarantee ensures that we will fix it within the first 24 hours after your cleaning.

Do You Have Any Allergies?

If you or anyone in your home has allergies, make sure to let your cleaners know as soon as possible. We can take steps to ensure that our cleaning products and equipment are safe for you, working with you to make sure your cleaning experience is tailored to your needs.

You Can Be Home While We Clean

Finally, you don’t need to leave your home while the cleaners are working. In fact, many people prefer to stay home while their house is being cleaned. Let your cleaners know your preferences ahead of time so that they can work around your schedule and ensure that you feel at ease while they are working.

Above all, open communication and a little prep work go a long way as we partner with you for your cleaning needs. Our goal is to give you a clean that exceeds your expectations every time and to provide quality services. By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your cleaning experience is tailored to your needs and that you can enjoy a clean and comfortable living space without lifting a finger.
