  1.  We charge by the hour for one time cleans, first time cleans and call-in cleanings:    

When you book service with us over the phone, we will give you a quote “range” for the time that it will take to clean your home or office (for example, your service may be between 4-6hrs). Once our area manager and/or cleaners arrive at your home , they will let you know if it will take less time or if it will take longer to complete the cleaning for that day.  We only charge for the time it takes us to complete your cleaning, so if takes less time to clean, then we will only charge for the cleaning time which it took to clean your home or business.   We will always let you know if we will need additional time to complete the cleaning for that day and get your authorization for additional cleaning, if needed.  

Please note: our phone quotes are 98% accurate; however, there are cases – usually when the actual condition of the home/location doesn’t match what was indicated when requesting the quote and/or when more services are requested once we arrive at your home.

We also offer complimentary in home cleaning estimates, if you prefer. Please call the office: 541 601-6236  and we will be happy to set up a time for our area manager to come to your home and give you pricing for your cleaning needs.

If you’re signed up for set schedule services, after the end of your third set schedule service, we will “lock in” your service length so you will know your service cost going forward.  

Our Primary Service Area is Ashland, Talent, Phoenix, Medford, Jacksonville, Central Point and Grants Pass and we have a 4 hour minimum (for initial cleaning) and 2.5 hour minimum (for regular maintenance cleaning with one cleaner) and a 5 hour minimum (for regular maintenance cleaning with two cleaners)  to service these areas.

We do service outside of our extender service area and commute fees will be applied depending to the length of the drive time and gas expense.

If you have signed up for a regular maintenance cleaning or a first time deep clean service, please try to have dishes out of the sink/off the counters and remove clutter from the areas to be cleaned.

Also, if you have signed up for the Move-out/Move-in cleaning service (and you would like the interior of your oven cleaned), please note that there is currently not a natural oven cleaning product on the market. You will need to turn on the self-clean feature at least 24 hours before your scheduled service and we will wipe the interior out and do the final cleaning with a pumice stone. Please let us know if you would like for us to clean the inside of the oven and/or refrigerator.

Yes! Absolutely. We love pets!

However, if you have dogs:

  1.  Unless you will be home, and/or unless your pet is completely comfortable with strangers, please try to have your dog out of the area which our cleaners will clean. For safety reasons, (unless you will be home  and/or unless your pet is completely comfortable with strangers) we ask that Fido be removed from the immediate cleaning areas.

  3.   Please let us know if your pets(Dogs or cats) are indoor-outdoor or indoor-only.

IF YOU NEED TO RESCHEDULE OR CANCEL, our office requires and appreciates at least a 72 hrs notice for regular set schedule clients, and 48 hrs of notice for one time service clients, to avoid a cancellation fee 

We will always do our best to work with our clients schedule needs.  Our morning start time is between 8-10am and our afternoon start time is between 12-2pm.  Our cleaners service multiple clients each day, and we appreciate some flexibility in when your cleaner can arrive.  If you will not be home when your cleaner arrives, please see below for options.

 There are several options regarding how we may enter the home. Please talk to our office about options and decide on a method for your cleaner to enter your home/office.

  • Leave a key for us in a specific location (and update our office on the location)
  • Attach a lock box to your door knob (and update our office on the combo)
  • Provide our office with the combination for your garage door

If your cleaner cannot enter the home/office upon arrival, a cancellation fee will be billed. (Please see below for our cancellation policy)   

When a regular maintenance cleaning service is canceled less than 72 hrs in advance, this limits – and many times prevents – our ability to book the slot for another client and/or for our cleaners.  

IF YOU NEED TO RESCHEDULE OR CANCEL your regular maintenance cleaning or call-in cleaning, our office requires and appreciates at least a 72 hrs notice for any reschedules.  Services canceled within a 24-72 hour time-frame may be billed at a $25 cancellation fee.  Upon-arrival cancellations and cancellations of within 24 hrs may be billed at the full cost of service.

Please keep in mind: We still pay our cleaners for each booked time slot– So, if our cleaners arrive to your home and get locked out or you send us home and/or when you cancel within 24 hrs, our cleaners will not have work for that given time slot. Therefore, less than 24 hrs cancellation notice may be billed at full cost.

One time cleaning services canceled within a 24-48 hour time-frame may be billed at a $50 cancellation fee. Upon-arrival cancellations and cancellations of within 24 hrs may be billed at the full cost of service.

Late payments may incur a $25 fee per 21 days past due.  In addition, accounts may go to collections after 45 days past due upon receipt of email invoice, unless other payment arrangements have been made. Please note: once a bill is past due, and is turned over to collections, we are unable to reverse this action. Please communicate with us if you are having difficulties getting your bill up to date,  we will work with our clients to set up payment arrangements.    

Here at The Cleaning Crew, we value both our clients and our cleaners.  We do not like charging our clients extra fees however, at times we find it necessary to make sure our cleaners are taken care of.  We do understand that life happens and we will try to work with you as much as we can.

We do understand that our clients get sick or natural disasters do sometimes occur and we will honor emergency situations allows.

Yes, please call the office: 541 601-6236  and we will be happy to take care of any changes to your service schedule.   

You are welcome to leave your cleaner a “if there is extra time” list on the kitchen counter. Although we can’t guarantee that your cleaner will have the time to get to the extra items on the list, if your cleaner does have extra time, s/he will refer to the list and work off of it.

If there is additional cleaning which  you would like to add to your regular service, please email or call our office and we will update your file going forward.  Additional cleaning duties may increase your bid price.  

Please call the office: 541 601-6236  and we will update your cleaning schedule to allot for more cleaning time and we will reevaluate your bid price then.  We appreciate the opportunity to maintain your home as best as possible while providing you with the most convenient service and the best prices.     

Yes….  Please call the office at 541 601-6236 and we will make the changes to your schedule cleaning and reduce the bid price.    

Keep in mind the cleaner may not be able to clean the whole house if the time is limited on the first 3 cleaning.  UNLESS the home is:

  1.  Well maintained
  2.  Smaller than originally noted and we over quoted you. 

In this case, you will only be charged for the actual time needed to complete your original service call.

Since we do still need to pay our cleaners for the minimum time quoted, we do ask that you do not request to reduce your quote/service on arrival.  Instead, it is best to let your cleaner clean your home or office and then we will only bill you for the time it took to clean.   

A tip is always appreciated – and goes directly to your cleaner. A tip is a great way to show your cleaner that you are happy with his or her work. Tips are not “rolled into” our hourly rate, so if you would like to tip your cleaner, you may add the tip into your service total payment (and we will reimburse your cleaner) OR you may tip your cleaner directly. In the cleaning industry (unlike other service industries), it is more common to tip a flat rate as opposed to a percentage.

Here’s an example: a massage therapist or hairdresser is generally tipped between 15-20% of the service charge; whereas, a maid or mover is tipped a flat rate of $5 to $50+ per service. The range depends on the length and quality of work.

You bet! If you refer a friend (or stranger!) or family member (and if that person books), you will receive 10% off any additional services. Just make sure your referral mentions you at the time of booking. Also check out our Specials & Gift Cards page.

If you see one of our staff members reviewing the work of one of our cleaners who is cleaning your home, he or she is performing a quality check on your cleaner – and your service. We do schedule periodic on-site evaluations, which help to ensure that you are receiving the best quality service and that your home or office is cleaned to detail. We do this to help ensure that your cleaner doesn’t miss anything and is following company policy. Our onsite quality checks have nothing to do with your specific cleaner, rather we do these drop-ins to make sure all of our cleaners are providing excellent quality service.  We do follow up with additional training for our cleaners at the time we are doing our quality check, if needed.

Please call our office: 541 601-6236 within 24 hours of the cleaning and we will send the team back out – at our expense – to correct the problem.  We will update our notes for your  home or office, so all future cleanings with incorporate your specific requests. We appreciate our clients calling us and letting us know how to better serve them and their cleaning needs.      

Please note, if you book by the hour :  We will do as much cleaning within that given time frame.  (If the service is “capped” – and the time needed to complete the service is limited and we are not allowed the time needed to complete), we do NOT guarantee the service.

Please call the office: 541-601-6236  or email us at info@thecleaningcrewonline.com   We are here to answer any of your questions, comments or special requests.   Please do not hesitate to call or email The Cleaning Crew, LLC office! Our service is to here to make your life easier, so you can enjoy what truly makes you happy.
