Common Questions

Why do I need to be home for the estimate?

This is a question often asked.  The answer is straight forward.  It’s for you.  This will give you a better idea of who you are hiring.  You can ask questions, see pictures, and pick references.  We can also explain the cleaners, sealers, and the process to you.  You will be given a written estimate along with other information you may want to look at before making a decision.  This gives you a more informed position to base your decision on.

How far do you travel for a job?

We have customers in Harrisburg, Carlisle, Mifflintown, and surrounding areas. We cover all of Dauphin, Cumberland, Juniata, and Perry Counties. We also service parts of Franklin, Mifflin, and Adams Counties. Check our service area page if your not sure, or give us a call.

What is your cleaning process? What type of cleaners do you use? How often should I have my house, deck, etc cleaned?

Every home is different and is hard to answer honestly without actually seeing the job. These three questions are all things that will be gone over during the estimate to give you a fair and honest evaluation.

Do you have any before and after pictures I can see?

Yes we do. You can see some of them on our website’s photo grallery and during the estimate. Visit our social media pages for more pictures and information.

Do you have any references?

During the estimate you can look over our customer surveys, and pick the reference you would like to call. You can also check our testimonials page.
