The cleaning process

No, of course you do not have to be at home. Our cleaning service aims towards providing you with more freedom in your daily routine and not less. It just needs to be ensured that the cleaner can enter your apartment and for the payment to be taken care of, if necessary in advance.
Please have all the important cleaning supplies at hand: Vacuum cleaner; mop with bucket; all-purpose cleaner; glass cleaner; lime scale and calcium deposit remover; toilet cleaner; various cloths / sponges.
In case the cleaner needs significantly less time to fulfill your order, you will naturally only pay the actual worked hours. If more time is needed to clean your apartment according to our standards, you will be informed about that early enough and can decide if you want to hire the cleaning professional for longer than the projected time.
Shortly after the completion of your cleaning order, you get an email from our customer service and are asked to give us feedback, so we can continuously improve our service. In case you have any remarks in between, we are looking forward to hear them. Call 0435 083 859 or send an email to kontakt-ch@bookatiger.com.
Your satisfaction is our utmost priority. In case you are not satisfied with the work of our cleaning professional, please get in touch with us within 48h after your cleaning appointment so that we can offer you a follow-up cleaning for free.

The cleaning professionals

All cleaning professionals have to pass a multi-stage selection process before they can start working for our customers. We personally talk to each and every applicant, check their qualifications in a test cleaning and ensure security through collecting a clean police clearance certificate.
Please let us know that you would prefer an English-speaking cleaning professional in the comment field of your booking. We will do our best to find a cleaning professional with the required skills.
Generally, it can be easily arranged to have the same cleaning professional cleaning for you on a regular basis. If you are very satisfied with the work of the cleaner you booked, just let us know and we will organize the regular cleaning of your apartment. In case your preferred cleaning professional is exceptionally not available to carry out your order, we will definitely seek out another qualified cleaning professional from our BOOK A TIGER network for you.
