Noriko's House Cleaning uses Tekon, a non-toxic water repellent to treat your (all-clear) shower glass (similar to RainX on your windshield, but Tekon, you just need to apply once a year). It makes our job easier to clean soap scum. We just ask that you maintain it by using a squeegee and towel dry. Homeowner & house cleaner working together to achieve best results.

One-Time Cleaning

A few notes on One-Time Cleans:

  1. * Please note to schedule appointments as soon as possible. We usually plan and schedule 2 weeks in advance. *
  2. All one-time clients are required to pay in cash or credit card. It would be very difficult to go after bad checks after the cleaning / moving has been completed.
  3. A 'booking fee' of $50.00 is required to hold your placement via credit card or cash. Due to cancellation and lost revenue, this is an implemented policy and deposit will be applied to balance. If cleaning is canceled 48 hours or less, the deposit will be retained.
