Your presence during the cleaning service is not required, but is certainly optional. Professional house cleaning services are experienced in working in occupied homes and have established protocols to ensure the safety of your property. Prior to the cleaning appointment, you can communicate your cleaning priorities and provide any necessary access instructions to the cleaning company. This allows them to efficiently and effectively complete the job without your direct presence. Rest assured that reputable cleaning services have the expertise and professionalism to handle the task while respecting your home and privacy.
