17. Are there any minimum subscription time for regular cleaning? Can I change the frequency of the cleaning visits? – There is no minimum contract obligation and you can change the frequency of the cleaning visit by calling one of our consultants or writing us an e-mail.

Carpet Cleaning

18. Do you guarantee to clean my carpets? – Our primary job is to meet your demands, so in case you are not completely satisfied, we will re-clean until you are 100% happy with the results.

19. What carpet cleaning methods do you use? – Visit our carpet cleaning page for complete information on this service. We use both HWE (hot water extraction) and Low Moisture/ Dry Cleaning methods.

20. How long until I can walk on the carpet? – The dry cleaning method leaves only 5% moisture in the carpet, so in a well-ventilated place, it won’t take any longer than several minutes for the piece to be completely dry.

21. What is Fabric Protection? – A protective layer applied on your carpets to keep them from dust, dirt and even spills. Learn how it works on the carpet cleaning page.

22. Will you move the furniture in order to clean the carpets? – The cleaners are able to move light furniture in order to properly clean your carpets. However, they will not be able to move big furniture such as double beds or large sofas and will do their best to clean all visible areas.

End of Tenancy Cleaning

23. What is not a part of the end of tenancy service? – Spot wall cleaning is provided on request and for which you will be additionally charged. Note that we do not take any responsibility for damage to the walls. Exterior window cleaning and carpet cleaning are also not part of the service, but luckily you can get a discount when booking a combination of services. See our end of tenancy checklist.

24. How soon can I have my cleaner to come and clean my house? – We will do our best to schedule your session as soon as possible. Usually, you can have your cleaner in no more than 4 days.

25. When do you perform end of tenancy cleaning? – The earliest hour we can start the cleaning is 7 am, while the latest one is 4 pm. Here you can see example slots: from 7 am, 8 am, 9 am, 12 am, 2 pm, 3 pm and 4 pm.

26. Are there any extra charges that I should be aware of? – No, we don’t have any hidden charges. However, in some cases it may be required an additional charging – an example of that would be if there is no parking space available and we have to pay for a parking permit. Congestion zones are something to take into consideration when arranging a cleaner. Also, surcharges may apply for slots on weekends or bank holidays (depending on the availability). However, don’t worry about all the small details, our representatives will sum up and explain everything before you book.

27. Who provides the cleaning equipment? – We carry all the required detergents, equipment and tools. The cleaners only need an access to your property, water and electricity.

28. Do I have to be at home at the time of the appointment? – No, we only need access to the property. Our phone operators can arrange everything – from picking up to bringing back the keys to a nearby place – a property manager or a neighbour.

29. What happens if I am not completely satisfied with the service? – In case it happens, we have a 72h guarantee and we will come for a re-clean free of charge.
