Can I be in my home/business during my clean?
Yes, we will work around you. If there is a lot of foot traffic while we are providing services, it may cost more due to time it takes to accommodate around.
Can my pets be loose in my home on cleaning day?
Yes, every staff member of Green Valley Cleaning is a super animal lover. When given direction we can even let your dog out for a pee while we are there!
Do I need to be home when Green Valley Cleaning is there or can I give you a key/ garage code?
You do not have to be home when we clean. Actually, most of our clients prefer to be gone and have the pleasure of coming back to a clean home. For convenience, the majority of our clients provide us with a key, garage code, or special instructions for entering the home. Green Valley Cleaning takes the security of our clients keys/codes very seriously.
What If I need to reschedule my clean?
If an occasion arises where our clients aren’t able to keep their appointment, we require twenty-four hours notice to be given prior to their scheduled appointment time. If sufficient notice is not given a re-scheduling fee of fifty dollars will be charged. This fee covers the costs associated with minimum daily pay requirements, as per British Columbia’s Employment Standards Act.
Is there such a thing as the pre cleaning clean?
HIlarious and true. The more you can pick up and tidy, the more we can clean. But please know, we are great multitaskers and can do the tidying too. Let us help.
