Will I get the same cleaning team every time?

We do our very best to send the same team every cleaning. Although, this is not guaranteed, as our schedule is subject to change.

Do I or a member of my family need to be present during the cleaning?

Not at all. In fact, most of our clients prefer to have their home cleaned while they are away so that they can come home to a clean house.

What about our pets during HCAS cleaning?

During the cleaning service, we recommend that you do keep your pet in a separate section of the home where they will be comfortable — not all of our furry friends like the sound of vacuums or unfamiliar people in their space. Let us know how you would like to handle your pet ahead of time to keep them safe and happy. A quick relief walk or feeding may be arranged for an additional fee.
