Do you cover my area?

Who are the cleaners?
We carefully selects our self-employed Cleaner Contractors, with at least 6-month experience working as a cleaner. All the Cleaners go thorough right-to-work and reference checks, so you can have a peace of mind.
Each cleaner is also interviewed in person to make sure that we provide cleaners with the right attitude.
All cleaners earn a minimum of £9.5/hour, as it is very important for us that our high standard cleaners are appropriately compensated for their hard work.
Can I choose which day of the week I need a cleaner?
Yes. You can let us know when you require the cleaner’s services and we schedule it accordingly. In case your cleaner is not available due to sickness or holiday, we will send an alternative one.
Can I meet the cleaner first?
It is always better to book a cleaner for a cleaning session at first, so you can evaluate her work and make a decision based on that if she is suitable for your cleaning requirements. However, if you need a regular weekly cleaning service, upon request we can arrange a meeting with the cleaner at your home at a convenient time. At the meeting you can discuss your priorities with her before she starts. If necessary, you can give her the key if she needs to access the house while you are away.
How can I reschedule or cancel my booked cleaning session?
Please, contact Clean Natural as soon as possible, if you want to reschedule or cancel your home cleaning session. To avoid a cancellation fee, contact us at least 48 hours before is due to reschedule or cancel any booked cleaning. In case you would like to cancel or reschedule your session less than 48 hours before is due, you will still be charged 50% of the amount of your session to compensate us and the cleaner for the missed opportunity to take on other cleaning order.
When rescheduling your regular booking, we will check the availability of your current cleaner and see if they can come at your requested time. We will arrange for another Cleaner for you, if your current Cleaner is not available.
