Q: HOW DO YOU COME UP WITH OUR BID?
A: Depending on animals, kids, pick up, location and detail. We come up with a bid price for your home , this is the amount that you will pay each visit.

Q: WHY DO YOU HAVE A AGREEMENT?
A: The agreement I have set in place is so we are both are on the same page in understanding how our working relationship is going to work, what we can expect from each other . we require a 48 hour call to cancel. If you do not call/text or email me 48 hours in advance to your cleaning or we are unable to clean your home no fault of our own you will be responsible for half of your cleaning fee. We hold your spot for you, I work very hard to please you, and try to be as flexible as we can for you. In return it is nice to have a 48 hour call to cancel. (illness and weather exceptions apply).
Q: WHY CAN'T YOU GIVE ME AN EXACT TIME YOU WILL BE HERE?
A: Punctuality to us is very important so you can imagine the stress when we are at a house and it takes extra time than expected and we are late to the next house.
We will always be there because we know how frustrating it is to come home to a messy house. Due to our flexible and ever-changing schedule, we will do our very best to be to your home on a regular time schedule since we cannot promise that we would be happy to text you that morning or when we are on our way to your home, please let us know if you would like us to do that.
Q: WHEN DO YOU EXPECT PAYMENT?
A: Payment is due on the day of clean unless I have you on a monthly billing cycle. Please be kind in remembering to leave payment. Monthly billing will be billed the last day of the month and will need to be paid by the 15th of the following month or a $25 late fee will be charged.
Q:SHOULD I SCHEDULE OTHER HOME MAINTENANCE ON MY CLEANING DAY?
A: Please don't it is so hard to work around window cleaners, carpet cleaners painters etc. Please let us have our day for cleaning, if there are workers that show to be in direct conflict with our cleaning, we will not clean that day and you will be responsible for payment. It is to hard to do our job and is too big of a liability for Pine Country Cleaning.
Q: SHOULD I CALL IF ANYONE IN THE HOUSE IS SICK?
A: Yes please let me know if anyone is vomiting, has a fever, strep throat etc. My helpers nor I will show up to your home with these things and we most likely will not want to show up to yours. Thank-you!
Q: SHOULD I BE HERE ON MY CLEANING DAY?
A: You most certainly can be there on your cleaning day, the clean goes faster and more smoothly when we are left to do our job with pets taken care of and no one home. If having you home does create more time we are there we will address it and bill accordingly.
Q: WHAT ABOUT MY PET?
A: Pine Country Cleaning realizes that pets are family too! If you would please advise us if you have pets before we clean, we can be prepared when we arrive at your home. We don’t want to upset your pet with the introduction of new people, smells and noises. It has been our experience that pets are better kept away or restricted to allow us to clean your home better with less stress on your pet. For health reasons, our staff does not handle any type of animal or human waste.
Q: WHAT ARE THE HOURS OF PINE COUNTRY CLEANING?
A: Business hours are 8:30 to 5:30pm Monday thru Friday We work in houses until 5:30.

We will need a receipt for tax purposes. If you have items that are sentimental and irreplaceable we ask that you please put them away while we are cleaning. We may not be responsible for replacing them.
Q: IS COMMUNICATION IMPORTANT?
A: Communication is the key to any lasting relationship. There should be no reason you are not 100 percent satisfied with your cleaning, If there is a time you are not call us within 24 hours and we will come back and fix our mistakes. Sorry we cannot refund any of your money,
