Lifting & Climbing & Bending
Our employees are very important to us, and we are determined to keep them safe, so they do not climb higher than a 3ft 2-step ladder, move or lift items heavier than 20 lbs, or clean floors on their hands and knees with the exception of bathroom floors. These types of activities put our cleaning staff in danger of back injury or could even damage something in your home. However there might be times when you want us to move furniture for example; tables, large chairs, etc. in these cases we are not responsible for; their breakage due to aged/old or faulty manufacturing nor are we responsible for any damage moving these items may cause to your floor. The cleaning team will not move furniture that contains electronics. The cleaning team will not pull out any appliances (for example a stove, fridge, washer/dryer) however, if it is moved prior to the cleaning visit to allow access we would be more than happy to clean the exposed areas. We do ask that you place the appliances back into their proper place as well.
