Dear Client:

We know you choose your cleaning agency carefully, and we’re honored that you’ve chosen Spruce Up—we’re confident you’ve made the right choice!

Spruce Up Agency has been successfully referring domestic cleaners to homes in the greater San Francisco Bay Area since 1996. We have repeatedly made the “Honor role” of the Better Business Bureau, and have been featured in articles & on TV. By choosing the ‘referral agency’ model you can enjoy:

·      Peace of mind of knowing your professional & experienced cleaner has been both background AND reference checked,

·      Flexibility to request a new cleaner from our registry of professionals whenever you wish without needing to bother your friends & neighbors for referrals,

·      Substantial cost-savings over the high overhead of traditional “cleaning companies”.


We’ve worked diligently to find the most qualified, professional cleaners to refer to you and would like to share with you some of the tips for a successful working relationship.

  •  Determine your priorities.  The independent cleaners we refer are able to custom tailor the cleaning to YOUR needs & preferences. Feel free to provide a priority list for your cleaner and leave notes if you are not at home.
  •  Communication is key. We recommend a walk-through of you home on the cleaner’s initial visit, familiarizing them with areas, such as:

o   Communication center for notes, payments, etc.

o   Where to take the garbage

o   How to secure the premises, key arrangements

o   Use of laundry facilities, dishwashers

o   Use & location of tools, accessories, vacuum replacement bag storage

o   Any other issues unique to your household

  •  It’s all about the right match.  In our experience, no one cleaner makes all clients happy. Both cleaners & clients have their own personal style & at times it takes trying a few different cleaners before finding the one who fits your needs. That’s what we’re here for.
  • Be realistic. While we’d love to promise you that you’d have the same wonderful cleaner forever, the reality is that circumstances change. People change careers, move, have families. You can count on us doing our best to meet these changes in a way that has the least impact on your service.

 Our mission is to make the upkeep of your home the least of your worries. Our office is open Monday-Friday 10am-5pm. Thank you again for choosing Spruce Up – a smart source for housekeeping referrals.
