Tips for creating a happy Sparkle & Shine experience

  • What should you expect? – Your Sparkle & Shine cleaning professional will complete the tasks on the Standard Cleaning Checklist.
  • What’s important to you? – It’s our goal to delight. Please specify any special preferences or instructions in the Notes section of the ‘Upcoming Appointments’ tab in your Sparkle & Shine account.
  • Help us help you! – Clear surfaces so we can spend less time organising, and more time cleaning.
  • Not home? – Provide specific entry instructions to avoid lock-out fees.
  • Prefer privacy? – If you prefer that your cleaning professional does not enter or clean certain rooms in your home, please let us know in your appointment Notes, or leave a note on the door.
  • For ultimate protection and peace of mind: We recommend securing or removing any valuable or personal items prior to your appointment. Please be advised that our policy does not cover theft or missing items.
  • Need to reschedule or cancel? – Last minute cancellations and reschedules cause our cleaning professionals to lose valuable work hours. If you need to cancel or reschedule, please do so at least 48 hours in advance to avoid cancellation fees.
  • A friendly reminder: On the rare occasion your cleaning professional is running late, please allow up to 60 minutes for their arrival. You will only ever be charged for the duration that the cleaning professional was present in your home.
  • Help us help you! – Clear surfaces so we can spend less time organising, and more time cleaning.
