Do I need to provide any supplies?
No, we supply all of our own supplies and equipment. We generally clean only items that are within reach and do not climb ladders but we do have extension dusters to reach high places. We also appreciate that you may have some family treasures, this is why we do not clean inside curio cabinets or areas with many trinkets. We will be happy to clean the areas if you remove the valuables first.
Do you use HEPA filters on your vacuum cleaners?
Yes, our vacuum cleaners do contain HEPA filters. We use Sanitaire and Simplicity
What if something breaks?
To prevent mishaps, team members avoid cleaning valuables such as crystal and collections with obvious sentimental value (as well as curio cabinet interiors). We may also avoid cleaning sensitive items such as plasma television screens, computers, other electronic devices, and associated wires or plugs.
Do you use HEPA filters on your vacuum cleaners?
We treat your home or office with as much care as if it were our own. In the event of a mishap, our cleaning team will leave you a note and our office manager will promptly contact you to discuss the incident. We pay the cost of replacement or repair, and we carry insurance for valuable items.
Are you licensed and insured?
Yes, we are fully licensed and insured.
What if I'm not satisfied with a cleaning?
We guarantee 100% satisfaction. If you are not satisfied with our cleaning for any reason, contact us within 24 hours of service, and we will return at our expense to correct the problem. We will correct all issues but we DO NOT refund any money.
Do you wash laundry or dishes?
We do fold clothes that are left in the dryer and start the washer with linens we remove. We will do our best to empty the dishwasher but may leave clean dishes that we cannot find a proper place for on the counter. We will also start the dishwasher if it is full. There is a charge for additional laundry service.
Do you steam clean carpets?
We do not offer steam cleaning service for carpets at this time. We do steam clean all hard surface flooring at no additional cost.
Should I do anything to prepare for the cleaning service?
You can help us to provide you with exceptional cleaning service by following these steps
- Pick up and straighten before we arrive so that we can focus on cleaning. This is the most effective use of your money and our time, and it also eliminates your not being able to find stray objects that we would put away in the wrong place, such as a remote control.
- Place fresh linens on the beds if you would like us to strip the sheets and remake the bed with clean linens.
- Hang picture frames and mirrors on sturdy wall hooks apparopriate for the weight of the hanging item. Also inspect the hanging wire and replace if deteriorated. Place bumper guards on the backside corners of wall hangings to keep the wall paint from getting scratched.
- Check and repair loose or broken items such as towel racks, toilet paper holders, microwave and refrigerator handles, glass shelves, etc.
What should I do with my pet while you are cleaning?
Nothing. Our cleaning teams work safely around house pets. We can even provide doggie treats. We do not let out any pets during our visit so please make arrangements for their potty time.
What time will you arrive?
We clean from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. While we cannot tell you the exact time of arrival, we can give you an estimated time (generally a 2 to 3 hour window). You may certainly request a service time and we will do our best to schedule service near that time.
Do I need to be home when you come?
You do not need to be home when we clean. Many customers provide us with a key. All keys are coded and secured when not in use. Customers who use a security alarm frequently assign us a user security code. For apartment and condominium complexes, we typically register at the front desk and sign out a key.
Who will clean my home/office or run my errands?
A team of 1-3, professionally trained members will clean your home or office. One of the team members will be a team lead, who, in addition to assisting with the cleaning, will perform an inspection at the end of the visit.
Will the same team clean my house or commercial space every time?
The same housecleaning team will clean your home in most cases if you schedule weekly or bi-weekly cleaning service. We do have to make changes if illness or vacations from crew members take place on your cleaning day.
What if I need to reschedule or cancel an appointment?
You can reschedule or cancel an appointment on our website, or call the office at 904-551-0772. If you scheduled recurring service, there is no fee if you need to reschedule a visit for a different day during the same week. There is no charge for cancellations made prior to a 48-hour notice. However, we charge your full rate fee for cancellations made with less than 48-hour notice and not rescheduling. If you skip a cleaning your next cleaning will be for the rate that applies to that time line.
Example: If you are weekly and change to bi-weekly you will be charged the bi-weekly rate.
What if my routine cleaning falls on a holiday?
The only days that we do not provide service are New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. If a routine cleaning happens to fall on one of these holidays, we will call you in advance to arrange a make-up date. We work on many federal holidays.
Tipping is not expected nor required during regular service. Although the crews appreciate your kindness. you are not obligated. You may add a tip to your check if you insist on leaving one. It will be given to the crew that did your home.
Holiday Gift Giving/Bonuses?
Gift giving and bonuses are again not expected but are always appreciated. All bonuses are joined together and divided among the crews depending on performance, position and time with the company. We ask that all holiday bonuses be added with your payment and that you DO NOT LEAVE CASH. It is our desire to do have the crews share this in a fair manner so that they all feel appreciated for their service. Tipping during regular service is at your discretion but again not necessary or expected.
During certain occasions we give our clients gifts/goodie bags to show our appreciation and thank you for choosing our service. Some items have nuts in them so if you have any allergies please let us know via email.
