in-depth fresh cleaning

The Fresh Start (+$32)

This in-depth service is tailored for homes that have not received consistent professional cleaning. In addition to the standard cleaning services, the Fresh Start includes:

  • Professional assessment of space and specific cleaning needs
  • In-depth cleaning of surfaces and floors, including hard-to-reach areas
  • Pet hair clean-up

If your home hasn’t been professionally cleaned in a while, a little extra attention (and elbow grease!) is needed to meet the rigorous quality standards of Up & Go service professionals. Fresh Start services are required for all first-time cleanings, and after 21 days since your last cleaning service.

For $32, the Fresh Start service tackles dust and dirt in hard-to-reach areas, stains on walls, stubborn tub rings—all the areas that need work to get your home looking like new. This service gets your home in great shape for recurring cleanings at a reduced price, or for you to more easily keep up until you’re ready for your next Fresh Start. Learn more about what's included in a home cleaning on Up & Go.

The businesses on Up & Go are all owned by the people who clean your home. Booking with worker-owned businesses means living wages, better quality service, and a stronger community.

A Fresh Start cleaning takes an average of 5-6 hours, depending on the size and needs of the home. Some 1-bedrooms can be cleaned in 2.5 hours, while we've seen a 3-bedroom take 10 hours. A Refresh cleaning, the service for homes being cleaned monthly or more, typically takes 4 hours. The service professional can provide a more specific estimate of the number of hour upon arriving at your home.

The Bottom Line: the service professionals will spend as long as is needed to make your home truly clean. The number of hours will not affect your price.

PRODUCTS. The following eco-friendly cleaning products are needed for your home cleaning. You can provide them yourself, or, for an additional $11 the service professional can bring the products.

  • White vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • All-purpose eco-friendly cleaning solution
  • Liquid Castile Soap
  • Natural Essential Oil such as: tea tree oil, grapefruit seed extract, lavender, and eucalyptus
  • Natural wood floor cleaner
  • Rubber gloves

EQUIPMENT. We ask that you have the following equipment available and accessible to the service professional:

  • Vacuum Cleaner (with attachments and replacement bags)
  • Clean Mop and Bucket
  • Dustpan and Broom
  • Rags and Paper Towels
  • Sponges and Scrubbing Brushes
  • Toilet Brush
  • Garbage Bags

Note: We use primarily eco-friendly products, but your cleaning professional may opt to use some bleach for tougher areas. If you would like us to stick to the natural products listed above, please select “organic products only”. If you have any specific concerns about equipment and cleaning products, please contact us.

Stick vaccuum / sweeper
Not for deep cleaning (Fresh Start)
How we can make it work:
  • If it is high-powered, with a battery that lasts
  • If cordless: fully charged before cleaning, and with charging cable available
  • If it has attachments and a removable hose to clean furniture, stairs, and hard-to-reach areas
  • If you have a stick vacuum or sweeper, and it's your first cleaning appointment, select the option to have Up & Go provide the vacuum. At your appointment, the team can look at your vacuum and discuss options for future cleanings.
Why it's challenging:
  • Compartment tends to be small, has to be emptied frequently, difficult for deep cleanings. Especially so with pets
  • Battery tends to die quickly
  • Many models designed for light daily use, and do not have sufficient suction or storage capacity

CANCELLATION POLICY. We understand that unexpected changes in your schedule may come up. We do our best to be flexible and fair to both our customers and the cleaning professionals.

How to Cancel or Reschedule:

  • You may cancel or reschedule your appointment through Visit the My Account page to review your orders, where you will see the option to "Cancel Order." Your cleaning partner will be notified automatically. We only accept cancellations (including to reschedule) through our website. If you call or email to let us know about a change in schedule, your appointment will not be considered cancelled until the cancellation is made via your account on our website.

When to Cancel or Reschedule:

    • No-Fee Cancellation: You can cancel or reschedule your service without a fee up to 24 hours prior to your appointment time.
    • Cancellation Fees: If you cancel or reschedule with less than 24 hours' notice, you will be charged a cancellation fee.
        • Short Notice Cancellation Fee: 50% of the maximum estimated price for your requested service. Applies to cancellations made with 12-24 hours' notice.
        • Last-Minute Cancellation/No-Shows: 75% of the maximum estimated price for your requested service. Applies to cancellations made less than 12 hours prior to your appointment, or if the cleaning professional is unable to access your space within 20 minutes after your appointment time per the entry instructions you provided. We will make every attempt to contact you during this 20 minute waiting period.

PRICING. To offer both you and the cleaning professionals the fairest rate, your Up & Go online booking includes an estimated price based on your home size and requested services. While these standardized prices provide accurate estimates in most cases, we also know that every home is different. So, your price will be confirmed by the cleaning professional at the start of your appointment following a walk-through to review your cleaning needs based on your order and the size and condition of your space. We ask that customers be available during the first 15 minutes of your appointment by phone, email, or in-person to discuss and confirm any necessary changes to the price in order to accurately reflect the services to be provided.

Typically, the cleaning professional will simply confirm the price shown on your order. In rare cases, if the cleaning professional determines that the services required exceed the estimate, you will be contacted within the first 15 minutes of your appointment and before the job begins to review and approve the new price. This is most important for Fresh Start services (your first appointment, or if it’s been more than three weeks since your last cleaning), but we will always take a moment to review your space for regular cleanings, too. If the cleaning professional reaches out to confirm a price adjustment and is unable to reach you, you will be charged the adjusted price based on your space. In these cases, the office is available to clarify any questions about your final price.

Factors that may result in a change in price beyond the estimate include the size of the home, amount of clutter or accumulated cleaning needs, or if additional spaces or services are requested or identified during the walk-through that were not included in the online booking. The cleaning professional and customer service team can provide more information based on the details of your space.

The final service price will be charged only after your service is completed. Just 5% of your price goes toward Up & Go’s costs to book the appointment.

PAYMENT. When you place an order on Up & Go, you must provide an active credit or debit card as your payment method. No charge will be placed before Up & Go confirms your appointment. Within 2 days prior to your confirmed appointment, Up & Go will place an authorization hold on the card you provided for the maximum estimated price listed in your order. This authorization hold helps ensure that sufficient funds are available on the payment method provided. You will be charged the final price of the cleaning only after your service is completed. (Cancelling or rescheduling a confirmed appointment with less than 24 hours’ notice will incur a fee as outlined in our Cancellation Policy.)

ACCESS DETAILS. The service professional must be able to access the home according to the access details you provide in your online booking. For your first appointment, you must either be at home to meet the service professional, or leave the key with a doorman. If there are any changes to the access method you selected, please update your appointment details or contact us at least 3 business hours prior to your appointment time. If the cleaning professional arrives at your home and is unable to access your space per the instructions you provided, they will wait for up to 20 minutes after your scheduled appointment time while Up & Go attempts to contact you. If Up & Go is unable to contact you or access your space within 20 minutes, a No-Show fee will apply (see Cancellation Policy).

SERVICE QUALITY SATISFACTION. As worker-owners of cooperative cleaning businesses, Up & Go service professionals are dedicated to providing the highest quality service and ensuring client satisfaction. As part of our quality control systems, the cleaning professional may take photos of your space during the cleaning service to document work completed (for internal use only). If you do not feel comfortable having your space photographed, as an alternative the cleaning professional may ask that you fill out a short form confirming that you are satisfied with the cleaning.

If you are not satisfied with the cleaning service you received, or have another concern, please notify Up & Go within 48 hours following your appointment start time using our quality concern form. Our quality review process requires that concerns be submitted using this form. We limit the complaint period to 48 hours in order to help us evaluate whether the issue occurred during the cleaning and not after other people used the space.

We will review each submitted complaint on a case-by-case basis to evaluate whether the cleaning was completed to our standards and any other concerns. Up & Go will respond promptly with our assessment and any proposed resolution.

As part of our mission to ensure fair wages and working conditions for domestic workers, including addressing the cleaning industry’s history of wage theft, as a policy we do not issue refunds for work completed as described in our service policies. We reserve the right to adjust this policy on a case-by-case basis (for instance, if we determine that a particular aspect of the service was not completed).

Tips are not expected, but welcome for a job well done. Tip amounts, while entirely up to the client, are commonly 15% of the cost of service. At this time, tips may only be paid via cash or check to the service professional. Up & Go will notify all users when tipping becomes available through the platform.

We take the health and safety of our customers, cleaning professionals, and community seriously. To help stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), all of the cleaning professionals who co-own Up & Go:

  • Are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. As part of a cooperatively-owned business, Up & Go cleaning professionals voted to require vaccinations for themselves in order to help protect everyone's health and safety. Please note that religious exemptions are available in certain circumstances.
  • Are willing to take extra safety measures as requested, including use of personal protective equipment. Cleaning professionals may also request that you take these measures.
