FAQ

What is your cost?

Feel free to contact us for an estimate for our team to clean your home. The price includes all cleaning supplies and equipment. Most homes can be cleaned within 2-3 hours. Smaller homes and apartments usually take less time. Contact us for details.


Do you charge more for my first visit I noticed that some of your competitors do?

We want you as a regular customer from the first cleaning. While special requests may cost a little more, we can give you an in-home estimate for free, and you can count on us not over-charging for your first visit. You will only be charged for the actual time that the crew is at your home.


Are you insured?

Yes. We are licensed, bonded and insured. We carry both liability and workman’s compensation insurance. We know that accidents do happen from time to time and we work with our customers to make sure that we repair or replace anything that might be affected.


Do your employees speak English as well as Spanish?

At least one member of our cleaning teams speaks English. Some of our staff is fluent in Spanish, but most are bilingual. We feel it’s a virtue to speak both languages here in Southern California.

We have been cleaning homes and businesses since 1984. Over the years we have built a reputation for outstanding service at affordable prices, and we want you to be next!


Will all house cleaning visits cost the same amount?

The first house cleaning visit usually costs more than subsequent visits. On this initial visit our cleaning techs take additional cleaning steps to get the home up to our high standards. Once this initial visit has occurred, your home’s cleanliness can be easily maintained with our regular visit cleanings, and these regular visits are charged as a flat fee. You will receive an estimate for both for the initial cleaning and the regular house cleanings up front.

We offer multiple cleaning options each include a detailed checklist; however all of our services are customizable to meet your individual needs.
