Understanding Our Approach to Providing a Safe,
Respectful, and Efficient Cleaning Service:

At Erika's House Cleaning, we take immense pride in offering you a reliable, efficient, and thorough cleaning.

Our commitment to safety and respect for your personal space shapes our service approach. Here are a few important aspects for your understanding:

Safe Reach & Extended Dusting: When performing Deep Cleaning or Move In or Move Out cleaning we do not climb higher than a 3-step ladder. Higher items will only be dusted with/a 6ft extension duster. We cannot move furniture, but we will try to reach any visible places either by hand or with an extension duster. 

For our maintenance cleaning, we tailor our cleaning efforts to ensure the safety of our team and the integrity of your home. Our cleaning scope predominantly includes areas safely reachable from floor level, with the aid of a 3ft extended duster for dusting. This approach ensures a safe working environment while effectively maintaining cleanliness in inaccessible areas. However, we understand that some homes may require cleaning in higher places. If needed, this can be arranged upon request. We will bring the proper equipment and can work on cleaning tasks reachable with the use of a maximum 3-step stool or cleaning equipment with extended reach from floor level for high dusting. Rest assured, these tasks will be performed by properly trained and insured cleaning technicians. The price for this service is arranged individually based on the exact task and amount of work.

Preparation for Cleaning: We are committed to providing a thorough and effective cleaning service. To help us in this endeavor, we kindly ask our clients to clear surfaces expected to be cleaned of clutter, dirty dishes, or other personal items prior to our service. Regular items such as dish soap, hand soap, lotion bottles, toothpaste, and toothbrushes that can be safely moved will be shifted, the area will be cleaned, and then the items will be replaced. For countertops with an extended amount of small containers, bottles, or other items as decorations or extended amounts of knick-knacks, placing them on a tray or in a box that can be moved entirely before our visit will facilitate a complete countertop clean. This preparation enables us to focus on cleaning the space for optimal results. Otherwise, our service will be limited to dusting the tops of the items with a duster if possible, and cleaning the surface only around these items. If you would like to arrange a service that will also include moving and organizing these types of items, please reach out to us to arrange the scope and pricing for that service.

Respecting Personal Items: Your home is your personal space filled with personal belongings. As such, we do not clean or organize specific personal items including dishes, food, groceries, laundry, craft sets, makeup sets and other cosmetics, jewelry, wallets, purses, paperwork, and other documents. Our focus remains on the surfaces and common areas around these items. All surfaces that need to be addressed should be accessible and reachable without these items.

Personal Documents: We understand that your personal documents may be confidential and should remain in the order you have placed them. To respect your privacy and maintain the arrangement of your paperwork, we refrain from moving or organizing documents during our cleaning.

Appliances, Furniture Moving, and Specific Features: Some areas require specific care and handling that go beyond the scope of our regular maintenance cleaning. These include cleaning hood air filters, heavy buildup removal, steam cleaning, or delicate detail hand wiping or washing of decorative items. We also do not move large appliances such as refrigerators, stoves, washers, etc., or move large furniture. Our aim is to provide comprehensive cleaning without risking damage to these sensitive and often high-value items.

Trash Management: As part of our cleaning service, we manage regular waste disposal. However, we request that all personal hygiene products and any other sensitive trash items are appropriately disposed of in trash bins by the client beforehand. This is to maintain hygiene standards and respect personal boundaries. We do not handle any extended amount of trash that is not properly disposed of in the trash cans.

Our intention is to offer a service that strikes a balance between thorough cleaning and respect for your personal space and belongings. Your understanding and cooperation with these guidelines enable us to provide a high-quality cleaning service focused on enhancing the comfort and cleanliness of your home. We sincerely appreciate your cooperation and trust in our service.
