Tips are always appreciated, but never expected. However, it is a nice gesture and goes a long way to passing along a bit of gratitude toward the people who care for your home. As with hairdressers or servers, anything from 10%-20% is customary, although any amount is welcome. You can include it with your payment or leave cash in a clearly marked envelope to bring an immediate smile to your cleaners’ faces. Please note that we instruct our cleaners not to touch any cash lying around since it might not be intended for them. That is why placing your cash tip inside a clearly marked envelope or with a Post-it note lets the cleaner know the money is definitely for them. It is also a thoughtful option to consider leaving your regular cleaning technician a bonus for the holiday season, at the end of the year, or for their birthday.
