Frequently Asked Questions

What does standard cleaning generally cost in San Diego?

To us, transparency is a big deal, which is why our prices are stated upfront. However, what house cleaning will cost depends on the number of bedrooms, living rooms, the size of your home and its condition. A larger and dirtier home will cost more than one that’s relatively tidy.

Which days of the week are best for home cleaning?

The best days are the ones when you need the house cleaned. For most working people, it will be Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. However, you can schedule it whenever you are available.

Why shouldn’t I hire an independent cleaner?

Although there is no law against it unless the person you are hiring is vetted, you are opening your home to a stranger. Furthermore, you have no idea of how good of a job they may do because they don’t have reviews or references, for that matter. Our home cleaning services are secure, and our amazing team brings their own equipment.
