Our professional house cleaning services can be scheduled weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or as a one-off spring clean at a time convenient to you and can be personalised to meet your specific requirements. We can clean the entire house, focus on particular areas of your home, or just one room if that’s what you’d like us to do. If you’re a developer or have recently completed a renovation, we offer one-time cleaning to prepare a home for sale.

Health & safety

Our staff are fully trained, insured, bonded, reliable, cheerful, and super friendly. What more could you ask for? Our cleaning products are environmentally friendly wherever possible, but we will occasionally use conventional cleaning products if needed to achieve the desired end result.

Customer satisfaction

Customer satisfaction is paramount to us. Our housekeeping teams strive to deliver a consistent, quality service with pre-planned schedules ensuring appointment times are kept.

We aim for 100% customer satisfaction, but if for any reason you’re not happy with the cleaning service we’ve provided, please call us, explain the problem and we’ll do our best to put it right.

How to prepare for cleaning company services

General preparations

  • Provide feedback early on in the relationship so we can tailor the visits to your needs
  • If possible, meet the cleaners on the first visit and walk through the home with them and point out anything that might need special attention or should not be touched
  • Let others in the household know the cleaning schedule so they can prepare their spaces
  • If applicable, keep a good stock of your preferred cleaners and vacuum bags

Questions? Contact us for professional cleaning company advice on how to prepare for your maid service.

The day of service

  • Ensure the spare key, door code, and alarm codes are available
  • Remove clutter so cleaning can happen: cleaning and organizing are different tasks
  • Put away “scatter” which is anything out of its natural place like clothes on the floor
  • Load the dishwasher and put away food on the countertops
  • Find a spot for pets where they won’t be stressed by strangers in their home
  • Place clean sheets on the bed that needs to be changed
  • Write a list of special requests for the cleaners
  • Secure valuables such as cash and jewelery to avoid misunderstandings
  • Put away important documents, magazine, newspapers, etc. so they are not mistaken for trash
