For more information, take a look at our Pricing page.
How do you charge?
To determine how we charge for our services, we carry out an initial home cleaning assessment at your premises. We then provide a quote with either a single price for the work to be carried out or payment options depending on your requirements.
Do I pay the cleaners?
For convenience, and to avoid any confusion, we will set up a monthly standing order so there is no need to make a payment each week. This also avoids the issue of payment potentially being lost in transition.
How do you vet the staff?
All of our staff have two interviews and are required to provide two verbal and written references. We use the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) to screen all prospective staff, so you can be reassured that our cleaners can give you security and confidence. Each member of the team is trained by a senior cleaner who has at least 10 years experience with us.
Do you have insurance cover?
We have employers and public liability insurance to cover any major incidents or damage to your home. This is to provide peace of mind to you.
Will I get the same cleaner each time?
We work in teams of two or three, so when one member is on holiday, the other is familiar with your home when a replacement is needed. This way there is no confusion caused when it comes to cleaning your property and the job can continue to be completed to a high standard.
Can my cleaner come while I am at work?
Yes, we hold keys for many of our clients. They are held centrally and given to the cleaning team before the clean and then collected back in each week.
How do they know what to do each time?
Every client has their own file containing specific instructions. We can also develop a program specific to you, which will instruct when to clean different rooms, as some may not need a weekly clean.
How do you maintain quality?
We have senior cleaners, who apart from initial and ongoing training, will quality check your home, produce a report and suggest any improvements that could be made. This is done at no extra cost and comes as part of your cleaning package.
To find out what our clients have said about our work, take a look at our Testimonials page.
What if I’m not happy with my cleaner?
If, for any reason, you’re not happy with your cleaner, get in touch with one of our directors letting us know about your concerns and we will do our best to remedy the situation as quickly and efficiently as possible, or allocate a new cleaner to your home.
What if I need to cancel my visit at short notice?
We won’t charge you if you give us 48-hours notice and if an emergency occurs on the day, again there would not be a charge.
How do I become a cleaner for Domestic Innovations?
