  • Can I inform the cleaner of all my special requirements beforehand? - Yes, you can give us a comprehensive list of all your cleaning requirement such as pet hair removal, oven and fridge cleaning and window cleaning. However, if you prefer then you can just discuss it with your cleaner on the phone before making any decisions.
  • How can I know that they are a trusted professional? - We don’t recommend any one of the Bicester, Oxfordshire based cleaning professional we have over another, however, the best cleaners on Bark will have reviews from previous customers whose home’s they’ve cleaned. You can use these reviews to then determine which cleaner or cleaning company is going to be the best for you.
  • What's the included in a standard clean? - This is a very common question as a lot of the cleaners on Bark. This may vary depending on each domestic cleaning company but usually included is: Dusting and cleaning of all surfaces, Cleaning of bathrooms, Hoovering carpets, Mopping hard floors and General Tidying.

Thomas Cleaning

Thomas Cleaning

Thomas Cleaning has been running for 27 years and we clean around 300 homes a day, with lots of offices, schools, and surgeries, etc.. We use our own materials and equipment and do all the normal things re cleaning, but can include ironing, inside windows, ovens, etc...and of course we're happy to use your products should you prefer. All our lovely staff are full time employees and we're insured, uniformed, trained and supervised. We generally work in teams of three so we're in and out with the minimum of fuss. So for example a 3 hour clean would entail the cleaners doing 1 hour each, making a combined cleaning total of 3 hours. The cleaning would be on the same day each week, and our system will send you an email the night before, giving the estimated arrival time for the following day...and we can accommodate immediate starts. It’s purely business, there’s no awkwardness on your part, no necessity for polite chit chat or cups of tea, there’s no slinking off 5 or 10 minutes early; you tell us what you want and we jump.! You say how many hours you want, there's no contract, and of course you can add or subtract hours as you wish. We'd love to help, so if there's anything that I haven't covered please don't hesitate to contact. We're purely here for you and not at all prissy about taking instruction.
