Do I have to be home when you clean?

Ah, the pleasure of coming home to a beautifully clean home after a long day at work! It is an experience you should treat yourself to. No, you do not have to be home when the cleaning crew arrives to clean your house. In fact, some cleaning companies may prefer that you not be home while they clean just so they can clean more efficiently and not be sidetracked. It can also be a safety issue—you won’t have to dodge vacuums and cleaning tools if you’re safely out of the house. When scheduling your home cleaning, let the professional cleaning service know how to access your home in your absence, either by spare key or with an access code.

What if I work from home?

If you’re working from home when the cleaning team from Buckets & Bows Maid Service arrives, that’s great— we will happily work around you. However, you may want to be sure you don’t have any important conference calls scheduled during the time that we are there, in case our vacuuming drowns you out. It might be best to try and schedule our service at a time when you can head out and grab lunch, or run errands, so that we disturb you as little as possible. But it is not a problem at all if you are there the entire time we are cleaning.
