Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How many hours will I require?

A.We provide a minimum of 2 hours per visit, however you may require more hours. Things to consider would be the size of your home, how many rooms, how much furniture is in them and the depth of cleaning you require. Please see our handy guide below for various property sizes and amount of hours you may require.

Q. Can I change the amount of hours cleaning I have?

A. Yes you may increase or decrease (to a min of 2 hours) the amount of hours cleaning you require. We require one calendar month's notice in writing (email acceptable).

Q. What happens when my cleaner is sick or unable to attend a clean?

A. Unfortunately from time to time your cleaner may be too unwell to carry out your clean, or your cleaner may be on holiday. Your cleaner will notify you of any absence. We do not automatically provide a replacement cleaner as only your allocated cleaner has been entrusted to clean your home. However you can request a replacement cleaner and we will aim to find you a suitable temporary replacement. If we are unable to provide a replacement, we will issue a refund or credit your next invoice. However we find our client's prefer to skip a clean or have the cleaner make up the hours on an alternative day.

Q. How much will it cost?

A. Our hourly rates include the cleaners wage and our retaining fee. Rates do vary depending on location. If you would like a quote, then please get in touch.

Q. How do I pay?

A. Elyte Clean will send you an invoice every 13 weeks. Our invoice will include Elyte Cleans retaining fee charged per hour. Our invoice can be paid by BACs (bank transfer) or a standing order. Your cleaner is paid separately and how you pay your cleaner is to be agreed between you and your cleaner.
