If you would like to give your service team access to your home yourself, please understand that we can only give you an approximate arrival time (i.e..:  8:30 - 9:00 or 1:00 - 1:30), since many factors, such as additional client requests or traffic, can affect even well planned schedules.  The most effective way to avoid this is to leave a key with Tidy Group.

We do not clean ceilings, exterior walls and windows, outside areas (such as patios and gardens) and surfaces beyond normal reach. We do not steam or chemical clean your carpets.
