Eclectic Domestics Frequently Asked Questions

Q: There are literally hundreds of cleaning services. What makes you any different than the others?

A: We are different because we understand our clients enough to know that every home is different. We understand that your home is your sanctuary-a place of peace, rather than a source if stress. We understand chemicals and surfaces and how they react-what to use and what not to use. We understand the meaning of "service" and the level of personalization and detail we bring to each visit is unsurpassed by franchise operations who notoriously underpay and mistreat their employees, and "Authorities" who are using generic and outdated methods from the 1970's.  We listen more than we speak and we take pride in the details. We care for your home as if it was our own. To learn more about what makes us different, please refer to our  Why Us  section

Q: My work schedule changes often. Do I need to be home on my scheduled Cleaning Day?

No. You do not need to be home on cleaning day. After your initial consultation & final quote is approved, we can discuss entry options. Please note that we no longer hold house keys. We now have a Secure Lock box rental program for clients who do not have a garage code. (For the safety of our staff and your family, we do not recommend leaving keys under mats!) . 

Q: How long have you been in business? and how do you charge?

We have been in business for more than 10 years as "Eclectic Domestics", and more than 20 as housekeeping & hospitality professionals. We charge each home by the job-and only for the areas and services desired. (Hourly rates are also available also for the budget-conscious.) To schedule your consultation & free estimate, click here

Q: What type of products do you use?

We use the least obtrusive products possible that will still do the job right. We are certified in chemical hazards and Green Cleaning. Our products are high-grade, citrus and peroxide based, and safe for your family, your pets, your furnishings and our staff. We follow the recommendations of the EWG's ratings, and limit use of the more harmful chemicals unless absolutely necessary. (If you prefer a particular product, please let us know!)

Q: I'm leery about having strangers in my home. Will I have the same housekeeper each time?

Once we schedule your services and your staff, we do our best to keep you matched with the same housekeeper, to maintain rapport, consistency of service and efficiency. However, if for some reason you would like to request a different service provider, please let us know and we will do our best to match you with a different one. 

Q: What other services do you provide?

We provide a variety of select household services such as house cleaning, housekeeping, home organizing, laundry, grocery pick up/drop off, meal prep, party-tending, holiday decorating/un-decorating, packing/unpacking, and more. Please visit our Services page for more information.
