Questions? We Have Answers!

  • Why should l choose your cleaning company instead of bigger franchise cleaning service?
    We bring to the table everything that bigger franchises do, minus the cons... We are licensed and insured. We perform background checks on our team members, provide training, etc. A lot of times you have different people coming to clean your home when you hire a national giant. Nobody really knows you or your home well. Sometimes the work is done right, sometimes not. With us, we always do our best to send the same team. Local, family owned business like ours strives for best reputation. By choosing us, you support our community.
  • Isn't it cheaper to hire a private individual?
    In some cases, it might cost you less, but there are pretty good chances it might cost you even more. -If you hire an independent contractor to come in and clean your home, and they get injured, you are the liable one, because there isn’t a company handling their general liability insurance and worker’s compensation. Also, are you insured if, as a result of independent house cleaners, something is irreparably damaged -If you’re hosting a dinner party or a cookout and your housekeeper calls in sick or cancels, all of a sudden your to-do list just got a lot longer, because you become the one responsible for getting your home looking its best. - Another question to ponder when it comes to availability is actually your availability: How long do you have for someone to come and clean? For one person to do a thorough job, it might take several hours, depending on the size of your home. ​ The choice is yours.

  • What is the purpose of a cleaning checklist?
    A cleaning checklist is used to make it easier for first-time clients to see what they get for each service and decide on the service they believe best meets their needs.

  • What is included in a deep clean?
    A deep cleaning process is more detailed than standard cleaning and the checklist covers a wider scope of tasks. Deep cleaning is about tackling the more demanding tasks, such as removing heavy build-up, be it accumulated grease and sticky residue in the kitchen or grime and limescale in the bathroom. The duration, complexity and cost of your deep cleaning service in Algonquin will depend on your current standard, frequency and quality of cleaning.
