The Ins And Outs of How Kristi Klean Does Business
Our cleaning schedule works on a rotating basis of every week, two weeks, or four weeks with ongoing service. Sorry but we can't fit in a third Thursday of the month, or every three weeks, if you require that. Also, every four weeks is also the longest we book out our schedule.
Key And Entry:
As most of our customers are not home the homeowner is responsible for entry. If we cannot gain entry to
your home you will still be responsible for the cleaning cost. A great solution is to obtain a lock box and put
it in a secure, discreet area and please make sure your alarm system is off.
If you live in a apartment or condominium please check with management on allowing vendors to your unit and also let us know about the parking situation on the day of the clean.
The Day of the Clean:
To prepare for the cleaner please make sure surfaces are tidied up and and items picked up off the floor.
This way the cleaner has more time to spend on cleaning. We will however, straighten blankets and pillows
and make your place look fabulous when you arrive home. Please let us know before your cleaning day if
you would like extra services so we can schedule any extra time.
Also, during the warm summer months we ask that you please turn on your air conditioning for the cleaners.
If it is too hot it could cause heat exhaustion and some cleaners may not clean your home, so they would appreciate that.
Because we care about our cleaners we ask that if any of your family members are ill please call to reschedule before the cleaner arrives.
We accept credit cards, Paypal, Venmo, and Square Credit. We ask that however you choose to pay, that payment is paid on the day of your housecleaning before 700pm, otherwise we have late fees of $5 the first day and $2 a day thereafter. After two service times of being late we will ask you to pay a day in advance. This helps greatly with the weekly payroll and would be much appreciated.
Please keep in mind your first clean may cost more than the regular general maintenance clean.
Holidays, Work Hours and Rescheduling
We do not work on any national holidays and will try, if we can, to reschedule your cleaning, but because most of our cleaners have a very full schedule we may not be able to fit you in, but we will give it our best shot to help you with the holidays. Also, if you need to reschedule your cleaning day we will try, but cannot guarantee another day that week and may have to wait until your next scheduled date. Or we can get another cleaner to fill in. We schedule all cleans during the business day Monday - Friday only.
We do love pets but if your pet is timid or afraid of new people and vacuums we ask that you put them in a kennel, or keep them in a secure area. We also do not pick up any feces, blood, urine or vomit.
Our House Cleaners
All house cleaners have had background and references checked. Kristi Klean only hires professional cleaners with a one year or more of experience. Your home will be cleaned by the same solo cleaner each time.
Of course tips are always appreciated if your cleaner does a great job. Normally, during the holiday season customers seem to tip more and is always appreciated.
