What type of cleaning products do you use and do I need to provide anything? We use GREEN cleaning products as often as possible. We care about the environment, the safety of our crew, you, your children and pets! We bring everything we need, however if you have products you like we are happy to use your supplies as well.
Do I have to pay a travel fee? Due to high gas prices we are GOING GREEN!! We will waive travel fees within 10 miles of our office IF we can schedule you on a day and time that allows us the least amount of travel and drive time. If you require a specific cleaning day or time we may be able to accommodate you however a travel fee of $10-$20 will apply depending upon location.
What if I need to change an appointment? Canceled appointment policy: we require a minimum of 48 hours notice with no penalty this is so we can fill your spot and still earn our pay. However if we drive to your home and you are not home or have not left a key or way of entrance we charge a $45 wasted time and gas fee as we still must pay employees for time spent during travel. If this happens on a 50% OFF deal certificate it is forfeited and will not be refunded by us or the issuing company period.
Do I need to Tip? It is proper etiquette to tip all your service providers! Gratuity is not required but always appreciated. 10-20% is customary. Some clients on a budget opt to tip with drinks, snacks or small gifts. A cleaning service is a very personal service, taking care of your biggest investment--your home--and help protect your family against germs causing illness. Holiday gratuity (Christmas) is equal to one full visit or one weeks cleaning fees for weekly clients. Example if your cleaning fee is $80 a tip of $80 for a total of $160 is appropriate during the holidays.
What if I have a complaint? Every once in a while things happen. If you are paying a flat rate for recurring service and we legitimately miss something we will gladly return and fix that area for FREE however you must contact us withing 24 hours of the visit so that we can see what it was and learn from the mistake.
If you are paying for a set amount of Hourly cleaning or a deal certificate worth hourly cleaning we may not have time to get to everything that needs cleaning. We encourage you to tell us what area is most important during hourly cleanings so that we can spend more time and focus on those areas. We do not return to clean for free on hourly jobs as we already provided service paid for during that set of hours. If you need additional hours of cleaning we are more than happy to schedule you for more time at an additional cost.
Our crew is fully trained and it is our goal to earn your repeat business. Rest assured we spend the entire time paid for cleaning we take no breaks during your paid time and have a track record of 14 years of satisfied clients and never a complaint logged with the BBB.
Thank you to our loyal clients who gave us 5 stars on yelp!
James "K & S Home Services has been providing excellent, thoughtful and efficient cleaning services in my home for over four years. They keep our home spotless, and it is appreciated. Since the same crew comes each time, they've developed an efficient routine tailored to our needs (dogs/cats/children). One of the things I really like is that they have a menu of special services over and above basic cleaning -- such as periodic refrigerator cleaning, deep spring cleaning, carpet cleaning, auto detailing and Feng Shui. I've had them do all of these extras for me, including the Feng Shui, which I was skeptical about at first, but good things seem to be happening, so I'm not moving anything they re-arranged for me!"
Ann "Great service! I called them in a bind when my mother in law came into town unannounced... these gals saved my butt. They did a great job cleaning, really friendly and informative! They changed all the beds, helped me hang that God awful print my mother in law got us for Christmas, rearranged the guest room, cleaned out the closet and folded the towels into cool animals in the guest bath!!"
Edie "Great service! Always dependable and friendly!"
Laura "We have used K&S Cleaning for over a year and a half and have been more than satisfied with their quality of cleaning and attention to detail! We have used a total of 3 other cleaners in the past and have no reason to 'shop' any more - K&S is simply the BEST! There's nothing like coming home to the smell of a fresh, clean house! They have been flexible and friendly with our crazy schedule and that's always appreciated as well! I had recommended K&S to my neighbor (she is now on board) and will continue to recommend their services to everyone I know!! THANKS for continuing to do a great job for us!!!"
Scott"Excellent service. I was very happy to use K & S cleaning after being told by a friend about them. Couldn't recommend more!! Thanks Shelli and speak to you soon when my carpets need doing again."
Flu season tips
Cold viruses thrive in dry, winter air. Keeping your indoor humidity levels between 40% and 60% will help during cold/flu season. Keep Your Humidifier Clean!! Moisturize your hands regularly, small cracks in dry skin can be entry points for unwanted germs, including cold and flu viruses. CDC says 80% of infections are transmitted by hands! Use hand sanitizer when washing isn’t possible. Generally hand sanitizer works better than washing it kills germs on contact because of the alcohol but some organisms, particularly C. do not respond to hand sanitizer. Use hot water and plenty of soap and drying with paper towels is more sanitary than cloth towels. Keep hand sanitizer, antibacterial soap, and hand lotion at every sink! Keep hand sanitizer on the dinner table!
Average car contains 283 types of bacteria per square centimeter. Keep your car clean!! Keep Lysol spray, disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, tissues, and hand lotion in the car.
Phones, mouse, vending machines and keyboards should be wiped down on a regular basis, and if you eat at your desk, you should clean it before and after you eat. Keep Lysol spray, disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, a spray bottle of 90% hospital grade alcohol, antibacterial soap, tissues, and hand lotion at work!
At school keeping the classroom clean both models the lessons and lessens the likelihood of spreading the flu. Keeping the classroom clean during flu season goes beyond sweeping or vacuuming and erasing the black board. A disinfectant spray can make it easy to keep pencil sharpeners, staplers, door knobs, light switches and other small, frequently used classroom items clean. Cleaning wipes and spray cleaners are also useful to keep around for desks and tables as well as surfaces that should be wiped down instead of sprayed. Teachers get students involved. Keep age appropriate cleaning supplies available so students can help, and teach them both why to do it and how to effectively clean surfaces. Parents PLEASE donate some cleaning supplies to your kids teacher for use in that class room. Lysol spray, disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, a spray bottle of 90% hospital grade alcohol, antibacterial soap, tissues, and hand lotion!!!
