Does someone have to be home when you guys come to clean?2020-09-19T02:32:12+00:00

Not at all. Just leave a key around for us or an access code(e.g. garage or lock box) and let us know how to access your place. We will clean up and lock the door behind us.

We price based on the number of bedrooms in the home. Select the number of bedrooms on our booking page and the price is shown instantly on the website.

How many cleaners do you send?2020-09-19T02:32:12+00:00

We send adequate cleaners to complete the job in half a day. If it’s a standard service for a smaller two-bedroom apartment, one or two of our staff are sufficient. For larger homes such as a 5000 sq ft mansion, we would send up to six people.

How long does it take to clean my home?2020-09-19T02:32:12+00:00

Service time varies depending on the size and condition of your home. On average, it takes one to three hours for smaller homes and two to four for larger homes. Nevertheless, our flat rate pricing means we will not leave until your home is in tip top condition even if it takes a longer time to clean.

What time will the cleaners arrive?2020-09-19T02:32:12+00:00

Our cleaners will always try to arrive on time for your clean however do please allow a two-hour arrival window to account for heavy traffic. If you need to leave your house for example by 9:30AM for a 9-10AM arrival window, please leave a key or access code for your cleaners. We will give you a call if your cleaner is going to be late.

Can I request special tasks or extras?2020-11-12T21:35:29+00:00

Sure thing. On our booking page, you can add extras such as move-in/move-out, dirty dishes, inside windows, oven-cleanings, refrigerator cleaning, etc. Or simply log into your account and add any comments you would like to be applied to your service.

Will I always get the same cleaning crew?2020-09-19T02:32:12+00:00

We try our best but we can’t guarantee it. Scheduling is incredibly complicated. It is only possible to always have your favorite team, if you are very flexible on your cleaning times and let us know how important it is to you. That said, whenever possible, we always try out best to send you your regular teams. If a different cleaning crew came along and didn’t work to your satisfaction, we will address those issues immediately.

Do you clean office carpets?2020-09-19T02:32:12+00:00

CleanMyTribe offers residential and commercial carpet cleaning services. We have provided carpet cleaning services to houses, apartments, fraternities, sororities, day-care centers, offices, and schools in the Greater Lafayette area.

What method do you use to clean the carpets?2020-09-19T02:32:12+00:00

Hot water extraction, often called steam cleaning is used at CleanMyTribe to clean your carpets. Our equipment propels a mix of hot water and cleaning agents into your carpet. This process help to loosen the soil, grime, gunk, dirt, debris hidden underneath the surface of your carpets. Simultaneously, our high-powered extractor removes all of these loosened particles and dirty water from your carpet.

We recommend scheduling a standard cleaning service prior to your carpet cleaning service for a more effective clean.

How do you calculate the number of areas for carpet cleaning?2020-09-19T02:32:12+00:00

Each bedroom/area under 200 sq ft = 1 area

E.g. house with carpeted floors in 3 bedrooms, small living room, hallway = 5 areas

for a house with carpeted floors in 3 bedrooms, large living room(greater than 200 sq ft), hallway = 6 areas

Add-ons to your carpet cleaning service: stairs, heavy stain treatment, sofa

Can I schedule a carpet cleaning and house cleaning on the same day?2020-09-19T02:32:12+00:00

Yes, you can. Simply add the “carpet steam cleaning” extra to your home cleaning service or book a carpet cleaning separately. Our carpet cleaners perform the service only after your house cleaning has been completed. Clients, especially ones moving in/out, love that both services can be completed in one day – since we do all the coordination work for you. If you prefer, we can also schedule your carpet cleaning service in the weekends.

What do I have to do to prepare for my carpet cleaning service?2020-09-19T02:32:12+00:00
We strongly advise that you move any breakable items out of the cleaning areas. We’ll help to move smaller things, but in order to focus on your carpets, we ask our clients to move the large pieces of furniture that they want us to clean under. If you do not want us to clean under such items, we are happy to work around them.
Do you guarantee removal of all stains in the carpet?2020-09-19T02:32:12+00:00

We cannot guarantee the complete removal of all stains. Some spills can permanently discolor the carpet fibers. The type of fiber, age of your carpets, and any prior attempts to remove the stains with chemicals can affect the success of our carpet cleaning process. That’s why we cannot provide you with a stain removal guarantee. What we can guarantee is that our carpet cleaners will use their expertise and tools to help remove/reduce the spots & stains to the best of their ability.

How long will it take for my carpet to dry?2020-09-19T02:32:43+00:00

The time it takes for your carpet to dry up depends on the type of carpet fiber, its pile & density, the temperature, humidity and air flow to the area cleaned. Opening the windows, switching on the fan or air conditioner can speed up the drying time. Our carpet cleaning techs always try to leave your carpets as dry as possible using modern and efficient machines. Your carpets should be completely dry within a few hours but we recommend letting air circulate in the area for a few hours more.

Is my billing information kept safe and secure?2020-09-19T02:32:44+00:00

Credit card transactions are processed by stripe and is layered on their own 256 security protocol. In addition, no credit card numbers are stored in our system (only a token that allows us to charge the card). Rest assured we take security very very seriously.

When will my card be charged?2020-09-19T02:32:44+00:00

We will never charge your card before your clean. A hold will be placed 24 hours before we arrive to clean your home. We will only take payment after your cleaning service has been performed. Guaranteed.

Will I be charged if I cancel my booking?2020-09-19T02:32:44+00:00

If you cancel your clean within 48 hours of the scheduled time, a late cancellation fee of $50 applies.

Do you offer discounts for recurring cleans?2020-09-19T02:32:44+00:00

Yes, we do. We offer up to 20% off for recurring cleans. For partial cleaning of your home, we recommend the hourly service.

How do I redeem a discount code or voucher?2020-09-19T02:32:44+00:00

It’s easy, all you need to do is include the code on the booking form and the discount will be applied instantly. Gift cards can also be redeemed by typing your code into the booking form.

Are you insured?2020-09-19T02:32:44+00:00

Yes! Our comprehensive insurance covers up to $2mil. We have made sure that trusting us with your home is as risk free as possible. Accidents do occasionally happen but if they ever do we will ensure that everything is resolved for you as quickly as possible.

What happens if something goes wrong during my appointment?2020-09-19T02:32:44+00:00

If something goes wrong we’re here to make it right. Please let us know right away within 48 hours of your service and we’ll be there to take care of it. That’s our promise to you!

What is your 100% satisfaction guarantee policy?2020-09-19T02:32:44+00:00

If you are not completely happy with your recent cleaning service, notification of such event must be reported to CleanMyTribe within 48 hours of service by email or phone. Once we receive the notification, we will send a team to address the areas of concern reported free of charge. Re-cleans must happen within 7 days of last service. If you are still unsatisfied, we will fairly provide a credit or refund to you. Do note, all refunds will only be issued after a re-clean or inspection by your cleaning team.

Why do I have to select the full size even if a few rooms do not need to be cleaned?2020-09-19T02:32:44+00:00

Our prices are not based on each room but on the size of the house. We estimate the sq footage through the number of bedrooms. This allows us to anticipate how many cleaners and how long it would take to provide the best quality of work.

If you have multiple rooms that do not need to be cleaned, we recommend selecting the true size of your home when booking and adding a special request in the comments. We’ll manually take $10 off per room skipped.

Can you tell me more about your heavy-duty cleaning?2020-09-19T02:32:44+00:00

We offer flat rate pricing for all our services but in rare cases when a home requires very heavy duty cleaning, special rules apply. Usually, this happens when there are multiple residents and pets in a home that has not been thoroughly cleaned for a long time. Heavy duty cleaning is needed when conditions are a combination of the following: decomposing food, grease on many surfaces, clutter on many surfaces, strong odor of animals or cigarettes, fur on numerous surfaces, trash scattered around inside the house.

In this special scenario, we would clean as long as we would a regular home of the same size, and hit most of the items on our cleaning checklist. If you’d like us to fulfill everything on our cleaning checklist, you can select our heavy-duty extra when you book. This allows us to allocate more hours, manpower and supplies to give you an unbelievably clean home after we’re done.

*for apartment move outs: If your apartment is far from being empty, please select the Heavy Duty Extra. Our cleaners will help you declutter and bag items to throw before they start cleaning.

Do you offer special rates or services for vacation rental owners?2020-09-19T02:32:44+00:00

At this time, we do not offer specialized vacation rental cleaning and managing service! We are unable to support your property with laundry service, restocking, replenishing supplies, checking for damage and miscellaneous services in addition to the house cleaning. For routine cleaning and changing of sheets at your properties in Lafayette Indiana or West Lafayette Indiana, please book online directly at least 2 days in advance. If you have emergency house and apartment cleaning needs, please contact us for more info.
