Can my housekeeper clean whilst I'm out?


All cleaners working at Direct Cleaning 4 You have been specially selected and have gone through vigorous background checks to ensure that our customers belongings and safety are not compromised. We have done this extensive background check and previous work references  so that you feel comfortable and can trust them to clean your home whilst you are out.


For customers with regular cleaning you will be given the same cleaner carrying out the services to your home, We have found this to be a great feature of our company as customers and cleaners can build a great relationship and clean your home to a high standard. Please contact us for further information for discussing options we offer. Options can include instructing cleaners to shut the door behind them when they leave, or lock the door and post the keys back through your letterbox if needed.


Will my cleaner be okay with pets?

All of our cleaners are comfortable with working in a house hold of pets including dogs. You are also able to add instructions for your clean to apply whilst cleaning in your home, such as making sure all windows and doors are kept closed, or letting your housekeeper know that your dog is scared of the hoover.
