How is the Detail-Clean Rotation System different?

Our Exclusive Detail-Clean Rotation System gives your home a “detail-clean” within the first two cleans. On the first clean, we detail-clean your kitchen and bathrooms and thoroughly clean the rest of your home. On the second clean, we detail-clean the sleeping and living areas and thoroughly clean the rest. Each time we clean your home, your clean will involve a general clean, plus a detail-clean of certain areas (based on cleaning frequency).

What should I do to prepare for my green home cleaning?

We appreciate if you will provide our cleaning team with a clutter-free environment. If that environment does not exist, we may not be able to fully complete your clean.

What if I’m not satisfied with the service?

If you’re ever unhappy with an area we cleaned, we’ll return the next day and reclean it.

Who will be cleaning my home?

A team of professional housecleaners, trained and employed by The Cleaning Authority, will clean your home. All of our employees are uniformed, fully insured, and bonded. They will not eat, drink, smoke, or operate any appliances while inside your home.

Do I need to provide house cleaning supplies?

We provide all cleaning equipment and products. If you have a special cleaning product that you would like for us to use, please be sure to discuss this with the local office owner or manager in advance, so that they can properly instruct their team.

How much will it cost to clean my home?

When determining your home cleaning cost we recognize that every home is as unique as the homeowner. We base your exact price on many factors including pets, clutter, floor types, as well as, the number of people who live there. Call (888) 692-6156 for a free phone estimate and schedule an appointment to meet with the local owner or manager for more details about our service and an exact price to clean your home.

Will it cost the same each time you come to my house?

The Detail-Clean Rotation System starts with two initial cleans. The initial cleans get your house detail clean by cleaning areas other companies often neglect. Because these two cleans take additional time we typically charge an additional fee. After your initial cleans, the price will not vary between visits.

Will you come on the same day and time for each clean?

While we can commit to a specific day, there are many factors throughout the day that may affect our actual arrival time. If you desire an estimated time of arrival on the day of your clean, please call us, and we’ll be glad to oblige.

Do I need to be home during the cleaning?

Absolutely not. In fact, most of our customers prefer not to be home when we clean!

What should I do with my pets during the cleaning?

If you have pets, we ask that you prevent them from entering the areas that we clean. For sanitary and safety reasons, our teams of residential cleaning professionals are not permitted to clean flea infested homes or pick up animal excrement.

How do I pay for my home cleaning?

Payment is due the day of each scheduled clean. Most of our customers simply leave a check on the kitchen counter or pay by major credit card (credit cards accepted at participating locations only). Please contact your local office for details.

How do I schedule an appointment with you?

It’s simple. Call (888) 692-6156 and speak with a representative from The Cleaning Authority. They would be more than happy to provide you with a free phone estimate and schedule your appointment to meet with a local office owner or manager.

How much should I purchase for a gift certificate?

If you are unsure of the appropriate gift amount, we encourage you to contact a local office for assistance in choosing the perfect gift. Once the gift certificate has been gifted, all the recipient needs to do is contact the local office and schedule service.
