Our Cleaning Service

What services do the cleaners provide?

We offer three types of cleaning service. standard clean which is a lighter clean that covers all the important areas of the house, perfect if you book a regular clean with us. A deep clean which is a more thorough clean which we recommend if your house hasn’t been cleaned professionally in the last three months. We can also offer you move in/move out cleans which includes the spot cleaning of all walls and cleaning inside all of your cupboards. We can also offer you extra cleaning services.

How do I know what has been cleaned?

All of our cleaners work to a checklist that we guarantee to complete. They work through your home, ticking off the tasks as they complete them. That way you can be confident that all of the tasks have been completed to the highest Spruced standard.

What is a deep clean?

A deep clean is for first-time customers or customers who haven’t had their home professionally cleaned in the last three months. We do a LOT of extra things for a deep clean, and we use a much more detailed checklist so we don’t miss all the little spots (e.g. windowsills and on top of the fridge)

Do you offer end of tenancy cleaning?

Of course we do! At Spruced we call end of tenancy cleans move in/move out cleans because sometimes you need a really thorough clean when you are moving into a new home. Our cleaners work to a check list for move in/move out cleans which includes spot cleaning all the walls and cleaning inside all the cupboards but if there is a specific task you want your cleaning team to focus on then please let us know.

Why do you charge a flat rate price?

We charge a flat rate price per number of bedrooms rather than per hour, this means that you know exactly what we promise to provide, and our cleaners keep working until the job is done. As our cleaner cleans to a checklist you know exactly what is included in the price. It really is that simple!

House Keys

Do I need to be home for my booking?

No you don’t need to be home whilst we clean your house. If you would like to leave the key with a neighbour or somewhere secure then we can collect it.
