This is completely up to you and what you are most comfortable with. We do recommend that you be home the first time to meet your cleaning tech so you can familiarize them with your home and your cleaning preferences. If you choose to be home, we ask that you respect their time and understand they have other jobs to get to and families to get home to at night. Doing your best to stay out of their way is greatly appreciated. Please secure pets and keep children in another area as we are working.
